Anyone want to open a cannabis night club in Weed, California ? "High on the Slopes of Mt Shasta" ! The historic tavern in town is VACANT ! Beautiful bar, huge kitchen, dining area, stage, dance floor... Would make a great ALCOHOL-FREE club..... Right off I-5 on Main Street. The Weed Bakery is also vacant and available.... would be a great place to MAKE EDIBLES ! Invest in WEED.... Weed, California !

Re: “Town Business: Marijuana Is the Most Common Bust Oakland Cops Make When They Search Someone

Interesting information but difficult to fully understand its meaning.

It does seem to go along with essential police department dysfunction also reflected in poor department morale, ongoing ethical challenges, very expensive officer turnover (still half a dozen cops quit every month?) and failure to deal adequately with serious crime.

Thus also it goes along with a public safety policy vacuum (responsiblity of the Council to shape and formalize policy and responsibility of Mayor and Administrator to propose and implement policy).

Public safety and policing in Oakland are difficult challenges to say the least. If the Council and the Mayor were simply to admit this and to affirm publicly they have no idea how to proceed, that could at least begin a productive conversation.

Unfortunately mum's the word in Oakland.

Re: “Why So Many Bisexual Men are Still in the Closet

I agree with Matt S' comment above. Except for me I have tried coming out many times over the years. My Girlfriend of 25 years knows and sometimes is cool with it, sometimes not. I've told friends and family before and they were accepting about it at first but over time marginalized my experience by either saying I was gay or that I was looking for drama. There is so much drama in my life already and I don't see why someone would think I wanted to purposely add more to the pile. Also, I am closeted about my lifetime of experience with gender disphoria and it seems like I have gone through so much pain in my life already because of both issues that acting on either of these issues let alone both would be, one- confusing for my loved ones and associates and two- would mean even more constant pain and work for me. I've chosen to hide because of this. I don't know if I'll ever really be honest and open with myself and the world. I want to try. Lucky I live in the Bay Area and have an understanding partner. Bi men need more visibility and I hate that I might be perpetuating the problem.

Re: “Supporter of Controversial Israeli Settlements Would Benefit from Exclusive Oakland Public Land Deal

The City should be making decisions on investments and property deals based on benefits returned to Oakland residents and to the City. There is no consensus among Oakland residents and taxpayers on BDS and Israel's settlement policies. I do not support the policies of the current Israeli administration including its settlement policies and I think David Horowitz, one of the recipients of Zimmerman's largesse, is despicable. Nevertheless, if evaluating every City decision based on the political views of the parties we may be on a very slippery slope.

I caught genital herpes from my ex boyfriend who never had any symptoms. I have had it for 4 months now,and it has affected my life. I have told my husband who I trusted about it and I have never had a bad reaction, it has affected my new relationships with my husband. People think herpes is really a minor skin irritation herpes has a long term effects on health. The stigma attached to this virus by ignorant people is ridiculous. Most people have herpes in one form or another. I would like to advise people on how i get rid of my herpes.i was reading a comment on the internet,and i saw a testimony posted by a woman from island that she get rid of her herpes with the help of doctor oosa. so i was so happy when i saw that post,that his herbal medication is free.i quickly collect the herbal doctor email and i email him within 5 hr he respond to my email.i explain things to him he told me not to worry that i should fill his herbal form wish i did.he only request for little money that he will use to buy the items for the preparation of the herbal medicine,wish i send to him because the pain was too much for me to bear.after some days he told me that he has prepare the herbal medicine,that i should send him my address that he want to sent it to me via skyhills courier service that was how i got the herbal medication.and i use it as i was told.after few days i found out that my herpes was no more.when some of my friend who has herpes saw me they were surprise and i also introduce them to the man and they are also cure from the same herpes.if you have herpes,kindly contact doctor oosa via this email . i know people might be wondering why posting such things online but i am gland and i want each and everyone living with herpes to know that there's herpes cure because i have suffer for so many years searching for this cure.

Re: “Will Public Cannabis Smoking Clubs Arrive In California?

At 73 I'm limited in my social contacts with tokers because my age group has a low percentage of Cannabis users and just like parents with toddlers always under foot I sometimes have the need to associate with adults I have experiences in common with. I have a hard time picturing the American Legion(who has come out for medical Cannabis) dedicating a smoking lounge for a low percentage of Cannabis users but where there's a need it will somehow get filled. There's nothing like the camaraderie
that sometimes develops among strangers from passing a pipe or joint around. Unfortunately there's nothing like the idea of 'Norml'izing the use of the herb that makes the Ozzie and Harriet crowd see red.
So the next time you go to thank a Vet for our service how about helping to ensure the freedoms we fought for and let us socialize and also grow our own.

Re: “Letters of the Week: Skepticism of a Public Bank in Oakland

Bill H., if you get the average $1200/ month SS insurance which you paid for, how can you pay $1000/month for rent and live? Oh, you say, rent a room in someone else's home?OK so $700-1000: no space to work, cook, have privacy, have any things (they are often looking for college students who come with a suitcase!, often you can't have visitors, age biases are there, too. And 3 floor walk-ups, not so great for seniors/ disabled... and usually no comfort companions. Up to $3000 move in charge. Rentals only open briefly during spring- mid summer, then gone to the captive students who will pay what is asked and then sleep 2-3 to a room. So, yes, then you are homeless... So WHO doesn't understand the problem, Bill? Housing First is the way to address the mental health and drug (self-medication) use issues, which are as often the RESULT of high stress, insufficient good food and other resources, minimal community support. Basically: lack of stability from which to re-create a life.

Re: “Legion of Bloom Terrapen Vaporizer Hits Smooth And Looks Slick.

During that chat with your editor I suggest you ask for a bit more space so you can explain this device's approach yourself rather than relying on its not-quite-English website blurb. I haven't learned a thing about it except that it takes cartridges -- which, I assume but still don't know, are formulated from strains that have high concentrations of specific terpenes. How is this anything but a lazy product plug?

Mr. Jerry Udanski, the Venezuelan economy is oil dependent and hence the drop in oil prices has devastated their economy. You are a relative newbie to Oakland, BTW. Some of us who subscribe are born and raised in the East Bay which makes me a native, hint can you name the First Raider playing field:)? Do you know what large international food chain started in Oakland:)?? Cheers Harbor Bay Isle anyone:)??

Re: “Oakland Councilmembers Accuse Mayor Schaaf of 'Bait and Switch' With Soda Tax Revenue

Relative to this point above...." While seemingly ignoring the absolutely essential, day to day issues for the city of Oakland." This comment was aimed at Annie Campbell and another council member. I would like to attest as a resident in Annie Campbell's district to her hands on approach to our local concerns. For example when the community pushed back against the incursion of a massage parlor into a primarily residential area in the Allendale Park neighborhood she stepped in to facilitate direct action. This is ongoing but her willingness to take on a gritty grass roots issue like this speaks to a level of integrity and caring that should not be taken for granted.
