Great review! Since it was out in previous paper, how do we get this in print? Possible to order it?
Thanks Jerry! I'll add this to the post.
Some backstory on the Wake BOE appointment: http://blog.wataugawatch.net/2016/08/state…
This isn't about weed! This is about the corruption and tactics used by law enforcement. Their God mentality...they think they're untouchable, regardless of what they do. They manipulate the laws that are supposed to protect society and flat out fabricate lies to protect their own criminal behavior. Our "Government" is the real Mafia. ~Peace
wow daily homicides in Durham and the PD concentrates its efforts on stoners crashed on the couch
You don't have to weigh the harms of legal MJ (or any other drug) against a standard of no harm. You just have to weigh them against the harms of drug war, which are manifold.
Further, you don't have to support legalization of MJ (though I do, personally) to consider the routine use of military tactics and overwhelming force to serve drug warrants a bad thing.
I guess Queso is so narrow minded that he does not realized all the negatives he referenced are direct results of it being illegal in USA! There are some negatives to legalization, and stats from Colorado show increases in certain accidents and children injesting but small compared to benefit IMO. An honest discussion is important to craft responsible legal weed regs to end stupid incidents like in this article.
Yeah right gran, the gangs "south of the border" don't exist because we cede the duties of production, distribution, quality control and enforcement of age restrictions to them. You disagree? How about if we get together for a friendly discussion over a glass of bathtub gin at your local Capone's Speakeasy? Shoot me an email to set it up, hey, I'll pick up the tab!
To each his own, I guess. I will never understand what's so great about getting high. Is life so bad that we have to alter our environment to find it enjoyable. I wouldn't brag about being able to grow contraband because that is what it is. This myth that marijuana doesn't hurt anyone...well let's take a trip down to the border and speak with victims of the gangs and cartels pushing weed and other drugs across the border. We can sometimes be selfish and narrow-minded.
As a Colorado resident with 24 legally growing plants I am miffed by what is happening in the southern states. Each day I read about people getting charged with felonies for a few plants. Police invading homes over small amounts of marijuana. Three productive law abiding citizens live in my home including myself. We hurt no one, still go to work, obey the law, pay our taxes. Why continue this policy of going after cannabis consumers. Not to mention all the money it costs.
I just don't get it.
i'm sure there's other redundant protocols in place at the state level - we're quite good at that.
Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.
This show is dreadful. I watched clips of the London production which lacked the wonderful sets in the Australian production. Overall, the story and music are dire. None of the songs have the lasting impact of Phantom of the Opera. It's as if everything that worked before was annihilated.
The trouble with Hillary Clinton is everything. She can't be everything to everybody, yet she tries. People like you, blinded by the truth, and so wanting to press your agenda, disregard the facts. How can a progressive who claims to cut down corporate greed and control, do anything, when she has taken over 100 million dollars from financial companies. The only way, I can see her winning, is by a disportionate number of people that disregard the facts and vote for a liar. It's sad but true, there are more people like you than honest people. That's why we call you sheep. God help us if she wins.
But what about all those cases of voter fraud? Crickets!
It is heartening that the judges weighed the obvious intent of the odious ID law and struck it down. It's a great day in Carolina.
The owners of all the other vacant homes (there are currently 5 on this/our block), are possibly waiting for a big pay off that isn't going to come. They all want way more than the home are are worth in their current conditions. We tried to buy 215 as a rental property. For a variety of reasons it didn't work out and fell through over a year ago. However, there wasn't much effort put into at least renting it out either before or after we had a contract.
Jim Anthony, who owns the property through an LLC, says above “I figured [the Durham GOP] would take responsibility for whatever permitting or zoning issues they needed to take care of. If they haven’t, then, yes, they’ve got a problem on their hands.”
Jim may soon discover that as the OWNER of the property , HE also has a problem on HIS hands, not just the Durham GOP. Section 15.1.3 Part A of the Durham UDO states "The definition of violator ...means that both tenant and landlord, where applicable, may be in violation and subject to penalties.
And by the way, why has Anthony let the house sit vacant for three years? That can't be very good for the neighborhood either.
Good news for the surrounding neighborhoods. Wondering what the site plans are going to look like. Seems like they'll need to significantly change some things (like tearing down some buildings) to fit this into Seaboard.
Hapless? As in unlucky? I live on this block, so I think I know what the neighborhood wants.
@vidvis - We're in agreement that this was part of it, I covered that aspect for our HB 2 issue a few weeks back; maybe "solely" wasn't the right word to use here. But I think it is telling that they (half-assedly) restored the state cause of action at the end of the session, but didn't touch any of the anti-LGBT parts of this bill.
This is the HB 2 breakdown I wrote, for reference. http://www.indyweek.com/indyweek/heres-wha…
