Dec 22, 2014 chrisgreen commented on Why Does the Mayor Want to Put Your Weed Delivery Guy Out of Business?.
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.

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.

@35: The fact that you don't know that, despite how obvious it is to observe in the real world makes me think you're either really dumb, or like 12 years old.

Take the whole thing down. This woman is a real person who probably lives in this town. A decent person would be thinking "maybe her and her friends haven't seen this yet and there's no reason she needs to see this comment thread".

Take it down Kelly O and replace it with a short apology to the subject.

This isn't journalism and umm, it's not exactly like slog has a shortage of silly little fluff pieces to replace it with.

Hey peabrain - Just because you've got the right to say something doesn't mean you're not an asshole for saying it.

How come you don't post your delightful little ditties under your real name so your mommy can be proud of her little boy?

Whoever thought this would be a good article should rethink their judgement. All it will do is generate comments from other assholes with decent people arguing back.

This woman, like anyone else should wear what she pleases. People who find her look attractive should be appreciative, and other people should shut the fuck up.

The only satisfaction I'm getting out of this thread is thoughts about what I would do or say to a person like "Pope Peabrain" (apt) if they actually served up this kind of shit to women in public instead of cowering in front of their keyboards.
