Bill, why should being drunk get you a pass on the auto theft charge? Cause if that's the message of this story it just means you should get drunk (or stoned) before stealing something. The cops should charge him with all the crimes committed and let the DA plea it down.

Pat West 6 days, 5 hours ago on Our View: Pot experiment seems to be working

Eric, I would love to hear how you can afford a home without the assistance of a bank, backed by the Federal Reserve? I got my degree in Finance, and have ia good understanding of the Fed, and what it does, and have yet to see any real rationalized explanation as to why you believe them to be evil. I have no doubt that one of the reasons Pot was made illegal was to prevent hemp from maintaining its place as a cheap fiber source, but please explain your position on the Fed, how the Fed creates money, and what's the problem you have with our banking system.

"we learned that the $271,901 in marijuana-driven sales tax collected by the city was less than half that generated by liquor stores."

But it is $271,901 more than last year. and $6.8mil out of the black market. We could probably hit $7mil if Rhys would go legal.

Just because something is legal doesn't mean you are required to do it.

Just because something is illegal doesn't mean people are not doing it.

Your religious beliefs should guide your own choices without the need for government to require them for everyone.

I got a call today from a robot, saying it was Master Card, it asked me to press 1 to re activate my MC, that had been suspended due to a fraudulent charge. So I pressed 1, then robot asked me to input my 16 digit MC number to complete the process...A pretty good scam. I don't have a Master Card, but wonder how many people follow the robot's suggestions and willingly give up their card numbers to this sly robot caller.
