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.

I lived in SF in the early 80s.

I remember a friend's gay father suddenly avoiding all physical contact with said friend, because one of the father's friends was sick, and research hadn't yet shown the method of transmission. Why? No funding for the disease. I can lay that lack of funding directly at the feet of the Reagans.

I would imagine they're as legit as a lot of the other audiophile woo out there.
Feb 23 deadrose commented on Should the City Stop Doing Road Repairs/Upgrades in the Central District?.
I'm not sure that cutting a lane of traffic out of 23rd qualifies as upgrading, since it's a major N/S arterial with several bus routes. Apparently the original plan had pullouts for the bus stops, but they got rid of most of them to cut costs, so traffic (once it returns) will be held to the pace of the buses.

The length of the closure has also affected those of us using those buses, since they've had to reroute around construction or cut off this section of their route entirely.

Meanwhile, the other streets in the neighborhood are in truly awful condition. Yes, they'll come out and patch a pothole if you call them on it, but that doesn't do much good when the entire street is crumbling.

Some people might call our household part of the gentrifiers, but we're just as likely to be priced out of the neighborhood soon, ourselves.
