Re: “Berkeley Greenlights BART Housing in Principle, But the Devil Is In the Details.

The question of affordable housing seems very straightforward to solve:
1) Fund as much as possible with the remaining Measure O funds
2) Pass as big a bond as possible in November 2020 to fund even more
3) Build market rate housing to fund even more

Re: “The East Bay's Changing Demographics

How can Hispanics/Latinos afford such high housing in the East Bay(or the Bay area in general) if they have low incomes?

Re: “Alameda Contemplates License Plate Readers at Island's Entry Points

"We're a very safe community, but there are folks who do some pretty horrendous things that pass through here," [Alameda Mayor] Ashcraft said. "At the end of the day I think we all want a safe community."

Sad to see the Mayor of Alameda perpetuate the racist myth that bad people come from outside of Alameda to commit crime.

Re: “The Great Cannabis Crash of 2019

My retail cannabis company is doing just fine. How? By using good business practices, e.g. not overpaying for rent, equipment, advertising, etc. By not borrowing money. By being in compliance with the law. Good customer service. Long hours. Open early, open late. By being honest. Paying our vendors. Expanding slowly. Making realistic assumptions about projections. Some luck in there, undoubtedly, but mostly hard work. We watch our competitors party and piss away money like its water. And go under. While still selling in the black market, which is where they learned nothing about how to run a business.

Re: “The Great Cannabis Crash of 2019

Nail on the head... but, of it was predicted in 2016 at StopProp64 on Facebook. The the politicians knew full well 64 was a scam, to allow big money to take over, which is why they promoted it, in direct contradicion to the recommendations of Newsom's Blue Ribbon Panel, and all the market protections afforded by the intelligently legislated medical law freshly passed by the assembly. Blame Kamala Harris for breaking her oath and sworn duty as AG by changing the ballot name of the Control, Tax, and Regulate Cannabis Act to Legalize Marijuana, a move clearly designed to sway voters. Her proximity to Willie Brown, and his to Harborside, cannot go overlooked.

Corporate weed (mostly) sucks.

Re: “The Great Cannabis Crash of 2019

I predicted this crash several years ago when I realised weed prices will drop with factory farming. I predict prices will go way lower as more farms come on line.

If you saw the news about Eaze tonight I think you’d probably find this article spot on

Re: “The Great Cannabis Crash of 2019

This is false reporting unfortunately. Many companies named as shutting their doors in this article, in fact are not going out of business. All companies named in this article should have been fact checked with before making statements about their current standing. I wanted to say great article too, and then found out that it wasn't factual, which is truly, truly unfortunate. Please reprint and repost and reshare updated factual information.

Re: “Towing for Dollars in Alameda

What is happening now? One of my clients lives there and has been towed twice. When he moved him he told them that he needed two parking spots and they said no problem. They will not let him pay for a parking spot.l They will not alert him about towing.

Re: “The Coming National Water-Quality Crisis

For clarification: I do not believe the Pleasanton Garbage Service operations are in any way connected to the PFAS in Pleasanton’s groundwater. The material that moves through their transfer station and Material Recovery Facility (MRF) near Well 8 is moved out quickly- often within hours- to the landfill and compost facility. I appreciate the author’s coverage of this extremely important topic, but I do want to be certain that my concerns are clarified.
