commented on It's Official: State Trying to Destroy Medical Pot Law
Medical pot profits go to the wrong mafia. If people were allowed to grow pot in their living rooms (was decontrolled) then Big Tobacco would be selling packs of reeferbutts and the State would still get their money. The people who are to lazy to roll their own ciggybutts would be to lazy to grow and process pot.

The state thriught the legislature is obligated to care for children not under the control of a parent or guardian but the legislature and the taxpayers would rather they sleep on the streets or be given care by do-gooders.

Why should MJ cost more than factory made ciggybutts? All WA has done is trade the Mexican mafia for a local, state approved mafia.

It is a union problem, not a government problem.
This site lists Seattle locals of the SEIU
Once a majority of a local employer has joined a union the business must negotiate. Union business should not be discussed inside the business until a contract is signed. Maybe a car could be parked on the street with the local's name and address.

How many of these homeless people were born and raised in Seattle? I suspect not very many. Seattle has an international reputation for being a soft touch for people who can't hold a normal job. Why? Because people on welfare never vote Republican?

"We're tired of having to wait for the dumbest kid in the class to catch up to us so that we can move on to the next lesson."
Thanks for the good news. Do you have any plans for convincing the Seattle School Board to help the winners advance and the losers to drop out? Or at least put the kids who will never learn and can't learn into their own school? In other words, to stop mainstreaming stupidity.

>I explained that I'm a reporter.
Maybe you snarled at him.
>Officer Marion shot back: "I'm going to come into The Stranger and bother you while you're at work."
Maybe he retorted. From Google:
Say something in answer to a remark or accusation, typically in a sharp, angry, or wittily incisive manner.
A sharp, angry, or wittily incisive reply to a remark.
>He asked for my business card, apparently so he could get the address to come to my office
You are a mind reader?
>(I didn't give it to him), and, at least once more, he threatened to come harass me at work.
Why didn't you invite him?
