ChefJoe is right: We must think of the children. Perhaps we can revive the latte tax and add to it a steam stone tax, which will surely quell violence, especially around bars that sell alcohol, and public parks, the Metro bus tunnel and in private homes in all of Seattle's neighborhoods where domestic violence rears its ugly head.
OldWhitWoman is right: Black people have been congregating peacefully in an infinite variety of places since they migrated out of the the savannahs of Africa, and 99.99% of the time they have done so peacefully, as have white people at $SBUX.
Gerald Fnord is right: Steam stones can be the basis of MJ parlors, which will surely never be crime magnets, especially if they are largely frequently by white steam stoners.
Mayor Ed Murray is right: Keep up the good work, Ed. We love your Clown Show.
Under state law County Health Depts are empowered with enforcement of the No Smoking ban (RCW 70.160) and King County Health Code treats vaporizers exactly the same as cigarettes!
The use of neither is allowed in a public place or within any place of employment. (This is why you can't vape in bars in Seattle, btw.)
So tisk-tisk Heidi --and Stranger editorial staff!-- for not checking-up on that little fact. But I guess it does give you something to call the mayor's office about on Monday, though!
