"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.

I'd have called him on it and ridiculed him. Answering his free speech rights by exercising my own. But I'd be hoping to piss him off enough that he took a swing so that I could use my right to defend myself.

Swimming Fire Fish from Bamboo Garden in Bellevue: Fish, tofu, and a mass of chili iol and szechuan peppercorns.

Google maps tells me that there's a liquor store across the street from Uncle Ike's,.

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.

It seems like the only way applying for permits could save a significant amount of money is if some of the protests didn't happen because of permits being denied (wiping out the rights of the protesters)

Glad to see my pick for best humor won. "World's best handjob" had me bent over laughing.
Nov 13, 2014 chrisgreen commented on Nine Employees Speak Out in Defense of Paseo Owners as Restaurant Files for Bankruptcy.
I'm looking for the part of the article where the defending employees say that the suing employees in the lawsuit were either NOT working >40hrs or were being paid their overtime, with proper reporting and taxation. I'm not finding it.

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.
