"Feds Invade Pot Farm in Search of Occupational Safety Data"
When the story describes OSHA performing a non-hostile inspection with the cooperation and support of the business. Extending normal worker protections and workplace safety regulations to the new businesses is a positive thing, both for the normalization of weed, and for the workers employed in it.

ugh. I live in Wallingford right off of their route, waking up to the inanity. Honestly, I don't think it should be legal to make so much repetivive noise over a large area for such a dumb reason.

The black market has thrived everywhere in the united states forever, and even the most heavy-handed law enforcement has never put any long term dent on it. But Seattle thinks they'll stop this super convenient and easy manifestation of it with an arrest-free bust or two and a press release?
The way to either get rid of those businesses or integrate them into the legal system is to make the legal system convenient and reasonably priced so as to outcompete them. That includes having delivery services, as we have for everything else.

Glad to see my pick for best humor won. "World's best handjob" had me bent over laughing.

I don't understand this thing where people imagine that somehow feminism has banned men from doing things like opening doors, complimenting, and being protective.
(Most) women still love these things (from the right person, at the right time, and done in the right way) from men who treat them with respect. The only people who imagine that women aren't allowed to have the parts of the traditional male-female dynamic they like unless they're willing to accept the parts they don't like (ie being treated like dirt) seem to be a bunch of out-of-touch pundits.
If Frank Miller is finding that women don't take his unsolicited compliments well, I'm guessing it has more to do with him radiating creepiness when he gives them than any song Rod Stewart sang. I liked the first Dark Knight comic a lot BTW.
