Re: “Way. Too. Much. Weed.

Water resources need to be protected as well. I think that restricting water in an industry that is as volatile as this one is might be a very good way to stem the tide of overproduction. It's a much more valuable resource than pot production justifies useage of.

Re: “RSVP: I Will Not Attend Your Weed Wedding

We used to smoke pot. We got stoned. Story pretty much over.
Now it is an idealized and idolized pop cultural gasbag. I'm way over it. It's not cute or special or mother earthy or anything else. It's legal and I'd love to try some skin cream to see if it helps the pain of my old arthritic hands. But it's a plant guys...not the second coming.

Re: “Cabbage Burgers

I grew up eating this here in California. My Volga River grandparents lived in Orland. My kids love these things and they are what I asked for for my birthday dinner when I was a kid. No cheese, butter brushed on top when they came out of the oven...and Grandma called them beroke. (Brrr-oak)

Re: “Ready

I believe...and this is based on experience...that Latinos are systematically stopped and cars order to generate revenue in the city of Fortuna. I really do not believe the police department. The people we have tried to help through these multiple incidents are too frightened to file a complaint. Dobberstein is being disingenuous, at the very least.

Re: “Just Searing Some Duck

I wonder...could one remove the skin, either before or after searing to render off more fat and then put the crisp skin back on top of the duck to serve? I have some rabid anti-fat eaters here, more's the pity!

Re: “Oh, Sit Down Already

Violence against women is perpetrated by men. Perhaps men are as much victim as women in the sense that these acts are conditioned by culture. The fact remains and statistics prove, that in this country and almost every other on earth, men are the perpetrators of violence against women. The stat that really shocks is that the leading cause of death in pregnant women is, in this country.
