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.

@myself: Welp, I coulda just googled that. You can file regardless, forcing the defendant to seek a dismissal.

@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...

I've seen my share of this, and it's worthy of shaming. Also, a lot of defensiveness here—burning man money begging is definitely some white shit.

Tangential advice: If you find yourself complaining about social media, you're spending too much time on social media. You'll be happier if you're exposed to the feed less, or turn off the ding-dongs.

Stopped reading at "lover."

J/k I finished it and it reads like a Yelp! review of friendship drama ("if I could give Andy half a star I would!").

@23 - If they come fo Dick's next, the protest mantras should at least be amusing.
