If only Oakland's policy makers had been as thoughtful as Kleiman.
Thus the consequences of Oakland's pot program have been a larger criminal sector of the local economy; more people in handcuffs and behind bars; more drug abuse.
Often using your brain or consulting someone with a brain can be very useful.
family came here when population was desired, not because they broke into a country that didnt want them to use and abuse the generous programs, immigrants should get the boot for breaking laws, God Bless America, not the Obama administration if theyre considering this amnesty garbage
this is not a wise discussion, Im writing a paper for college that requires pros and cons so I looked this page up. Anyhow theres not an institution in Mexico with learning paralled to Americas junior colleges, maybe even high school. We are also in the middle of a recession because theres to many low wage workers and people who refuse to work, so introducing millions of new unskilled workers is good? Wrong, they commit crime our gangs wouldnt and they would weigh down on American government "oppurtunities" like welfare. Anyone in favor of amnesty is confused. Who ever said, "Americans are scared because immigrants are tough" Your an insult to a great country, Im not starving because I can afford to feed myself, not because Im weak you nut job.
That ain't truth sweetie, it's hate, which is contrary to any legit religion out there (if you're into that kind of thing). I'm "shocked" that you could be so narrow minded. Shame on you.

Awesome, Ken has been a top notch advocate since the inception of the medical cannabis movement. His following has earned him respect.
He faced down the FEDS and will continue to deliver.
Ken deserves good press from the express to make up for what Chris Thompson did. I worked with Ken during those early days of Oaksterdam and enjoyed it immensely. He was instrumental in opening up the selection of Medicine straight from the Emerald Triangle.
He developed new strains from proven genetics that is true medication because he needs it personally.
Before Ken most of the medicine was grown in the Bay Area
The real deal from Humboldt and Mendocino sure changed attitudes.
Love you Ken and am very happy with the Richmond decision
I liked the comment be made about it being John Wayne to not care about whether it was published since he had been paid already.
Without regard to the merits of draining Hetch Hetchy, it is hard not to see the results of this poll as driven by hating San Francisco at least as much as loving Hetch Hetchy. Did the survey also inquire about the Owens Valley?
There are plenty of established medical facts to back it up marijuana legalization. That's why Medical Cannabis is legal in many countries, including 17 U.S. states such as Washington DC.

Please keep the food cheap, yummy, filling, satisfying breakfast food, even if the name is changed to Bleecker Street Bistro. Especially in that area of Berkeley, it's a godsend for college students.
Prohibition has finally run its course; the lives and livelihoods of hundred's of millions of people worldwide have been destroyed or severely disrupted; many countries that were once shining beacons of liberty and prosperity have become toxic, repressive, smoldering heaps of hypocrisy, and a gross affront to fundamental human decency. It is now the duty of every last one of us to insure that the people who are responsible for this shameful situation are not simply left in peace to enjoy the wealth and status that their despicable actions have, until now, afforded them. Former and present Prohibitionists must not be allowed to remain untainted and untouched from the unconscionable acts that they have viciously committed on their fellow human beings. They have provided us with neither safe communities nor safe streets. We will provide them with neither a safe haven to enjoy their ill-gotten gains nor the liberty to repeat such a similar atrocity.
"Evidence provides no indication that decriminalization leads to a measurable increase in marijuana use."
— Boston University Department of Economics
"There is little evidence that decriminalization of marijuana use necessarily leads to a substantial increase in marijuana use."
— National Academy of Sciences
"The preponderance of the evidence which we have gathered and examined points to the conclusion that decriminalization has had virtually no effect either on the marijuana use or on related attitudes and beliefs about marijuana use among American young people."
— The University of Michigan's Institute for Social Research
"The Dutch experience, together with those of a few other countries with more modest policy changes, provides a moderately good empirical case that removal of criminal prohibitions on cannabis possession (decriminalization) will not increase the prevalence of marijuana or any other illicit drug; the argument for decriminalization is thus strong."
— British Journal of Psychiatry
What the fuck. Ann's Kitchen is awesome. Always packed on the weekends. The only real diner-line experience on Southside. What a shame.

I’m aware of the bottoming-out problems of the NABI low-floor buses, but I’ve ridden County Connection and VTA Gillig low floor buses numerous times and they had no such problem.
The Van Hool buses have many mechanical problems. But, of course, the dozens of AC Transit mechanics who got trips to Belgium, costing AC Transit about a million dollars, weren’t inclined to point them out. Presently, AC Transit has to reserve a million dollars in its budget for repairs on the last order of 30-ft Van Hools because they don’t pass pollution tests and the correction requires structural changes.
Furthermore, all repairs on the engines are time consuming, because they are all, insanely, located in the passenger compartment. Access to them requires unscrewing many bolts, and working in a constrained space, whereas, on the Gilligs (and most, if not all American buses), it is just a matter of lifting a door at the rear of the bus.
I’ve ridden the DC Circulator system. It is for tourists and as such works quite well. It rides slowly around the federal government sites on well-maintained roads. The entry bottleneck is not a big problem because people with shopping carts were not trying to enter. Many are in family or friends groups so they didn’t mind sitting facing each other, knee to knee. And a bus like the Van Hool, which has low floor aisles but high floor seating give passengers better views and, so, is a plus for tourists. In this instance, a minus for American true low floor buses, is that eye level is at the bottom of the window; the best views are on the rear mezzanine level.
DC was aware of the hazard of the step-up seats, so “Danger: Watch Your Step” decals were placed on the risers. (AC Transit adopted this after I informed a board member about it.)
Note: DC didn’t buy any Van Hools for their normal working routes.
These consultants stroll in and grandly announce that OPD shouldn't be trying to respond to non-critical, non-emergency 911 calls. Like this is big news worth 250k. But two years ago the local (before they reorganized) Capt T. for North Oakland shocked his audience by matter of factly stating that only a fraction of the hundreds of thousand of 911 calls ever get a cop visit. OPD was already triaging and filtering 911 calls, at least informally. so what's going to change now to free up huge amounts of cop time?
