@26 Agree with your point here—and Dan, $500k condos don't piss off gentrifiers, it enables them. $1M homes piss off everyone but the top 5%.

Your point at @27 I hear repeated in San Francisco pretty often, but the truth is a major earthquake would punish all but the most cash-rich residents and squeeze the housing market tighter for the next few years. Unless, of course, the areas highest paying employers all built on brick foundations and decided they're moving to Nebraska instead... that'd get housing prices down.

You can't smell the wine before you buy a bottle either. What consumables can you handle in the store?
I've never been to a Washington pot store but does this rule noticeably cut down on external odor? Some weed smells good, some bad, but good lord some of the stores in SF can stink up the block as much as a McDonalds. Always felt for the people that live above them.

Without commentating on the nature of the allegation—can one file a lawsuit even though that the statute of limitations has long expired?

@24 - The crux of this topic isn't how people choose to spend their money, it's whether or not someone's weekend of EDM and drugs in the desert funtimes should be considered a worthwhile charity by the working poor.

Uh-oh, Pam. You might want to ask your new boyfriend how he feels about house cats. Might not be PETA material. #neverforget

@8 Small consolation but if (when) the city reassesses those properties, combined with the values of the new developments forthcoming, there will be a property tax windfall. A drop in the bucket, sure, but...
