commented on ShotSpotter Sounds Great, but Does It Reduce Gun Violence?
It sounds as if the technology isn't there yet, or simply isn't implemented in this setup. With that many false positives, it's going to be the microphones that cried wolf, keeping cops from doing other things to investigate, or burning them out on it so that they ignore it entirely.
The lack of transparency from the company and the need for a subscription makes it sound like a real money pit, and pretty useless. I say this as someone living in a neighborhood with a lot of "actual" shots fired.

Wow, Prince looks whiter than me in that illustration. That's a bit disturbing. He was a beautiful man and doesn't deserve that whitewash job.
commented on Want to Relax? Don't Let Them Talk You Into High-THC Weed
I quit smoking weed for a very long time, because of the turn to high-THC strains. They not only made me anxious & paranoid, they made me shake & twitch like a meth-smoking Chihuahua. High CBD strains have finally made it possible to indulge again.
I also would love to see leaf available again, as it makes it much easier for me to titrate the right dose. I'm one of those one-hit not enough, 2-hits too much sorts. And sometimes I'd just like to relive my youth with a couple of fat joints and a Pink Floyd album.
