Is this the nicest "I, Anonymous" ever?
@Hank, you mean besides a diagnosis of bipolar and some evidence that she slips between realities pretty readily, not to mention problems holding down a stable "normal" job? This person really clearly needs help, and her existence is not simply a symptom of some lax or overworked state agencies, but also of a systemic problem with both treatment and recognition of mental illness in the state of Oregon.
Ah man, cake tasting was great for us. Overall, I think the key to having a fun (maybe not inexpensive, but maybe) wedding is to get help from your friends and go off the beaten path. The parts of our wedding that we did that way (we were Portabello's first wedding!) were awesome. The other parts were good, but I'm glad we didn't get lost in chair covers and rented beads (and it turns out buying is less money than renting if you go to a bulk art supply site and have friends and family who are willing to take some of your junk when you're done with it).
Does this count for the fact that THC can stay in the system for almost a month, whereas most other substances of abuse are flushed out in hours or days? Does it count for the fact that MJ is substantially more widely available in general?
As a former bus driver, my main complaint about pot is that I wish people would shower and double bag if they plan to use public transit. That's a pretty minor complaint compared to my feelings on Crack users and "Meth Heads", or the people who pass out from opiates. In fact, it's pretty minor compared to the smokers who start to get on the bus with a lit cig, or the many MANY people who try to sneak open alcohol on the bus (if you feel the need to drink on a bus, I would suggest that City Hall is a nice warm place that is actually less illegal to drink in - right, like your reading this). So I'm not so sure we need to be worried about the amount of MJ in our criminal justice system.
Somehow these comments make more sense if I imagine a t-rex and a Utah raptor saying . Weird.
I don't know: would Bob Marley posters fit under "Religious Discrimination"?
What's wrong with ordering food at a strip club? Furthermore, what's wrong with Portland attracting a certain type of eco-tourist that thinks it's cool to go to the only vegan strip club in the country? Obviously, despite being a bit out of the way, the original Casa is doing well enough to expand, and it's pretty obvious that they are moving into a section of road that can handle a strip club or two. Also, I don't think it's up to the OLCC brute squad to enforce arbitrary moral authority, and if it is, then maybe they can start on 82nd (where the strip clubs are the classy shops) instead of going after a business that personifies the quarky weirdness of Portland.
frankieb: Anyone collecting taxes benefits from money being exchanged, or from property that has a higher value. You can be sure that this is central to the way the city cracks down or doesn't. Of course, anything requiring action is less likely than anything not, so the original calculation is a little skewed, as we can see by the Lenard toilets that have decidedly NOT popped up in the last few years.
