Aww no! Travis is a culinary genius! I'm really going to miss his cooking there.

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.

I wonder if the farms and orchards in the eastern half of the state remember what happened a few years ago when the migrant workers didn't show up, due to restrictive new laws. IIRC they ended up hiring prisoners to pick the apple crop at some deeply outrageous cost.

Your line is great. I'd like it better in b/w.

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.

DrummerGrrl, there are edibles out there that are high-CBD. I can't tell you any more about them as I've never tried them.

As to the protection for people using government assistance, I've seen some of that in action with the supposedly-protected Section 8. Sure, they accepted Section 8, no problem. But they only did 9 month leases, and Section 8 required a year's lease. Hard to craft a law that a landlord can't find a way around.

@ScrawnyKayaker In case you ever reread this and find the comment, yes - low-THC high CBD weed will be kind to your tremor more than likely. It is to mine!

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.

@1 Baron Groznik, That is unfortunately not true in all cases. Especially when it's parts of the company not on the main campus. HR was not helpful.
