New deadline for Eureka pot business plans

This image came straight from the City of Eureka (h/t Dave Tyson). The new Mayor must be choking on his good, old-fashioned war-on-pot values.

    Because all the potential applicants were stoned and lost track of the time.

    I doubt that was it.

    Because who would want to do that kind of business in Eureka when you could choose a nicer less crime-riddled place.

    Funny how easy money co-opts everyone.

    The Mayor may be gagging on his “old fashioned war on pot values”, but wouldn’t it be nice if he were consistent with those old fashioned Boy Scout values of self-reliance to help us diversify our local economy?

    It’s a well-known fact that MJ causes liberalism, and chronic use can lead to communism. At this rate Eureka will be known as “The People’s Republic” in around 2013. Everyone will be required to sing “The Internationale” before every concert at the Arkley Center.

    They won’t be able to sing the Internationale because they won’t be able to read or remember the words.

    “They won’t be able to sing the Internationale because they won’t be able to read or remember the words.”

    Yeah, that’s why musicians never, ever smoke pot. Well, there’s Willie Nelson, but I’m sure he’s the only one.

    Yeah because, you know, musicians are little Einsteins don’t you know.

    Well, some musicians are brilliant, talented, successful, and also happen to be regular cannabis users. “Little Einsteins” or not, they don’t seem to have any trouble composing music, writing lyrics, remembering the lyrics, and performing both to a high level of excellence.

    Of course not just musicians, but most of the millions of Americans who use cannabis responsibly and in moderation are happy, successful individuals who work hard, take good care of their families, and are harming nobody with their use of cannabis.

    Then there are the minority who overuse (abuse) the substance, but even they do not create anywhere close to the level of harm created by tobacco smoking, or by alcoholism, alcohol-related accidents, alcohol-related domestic violence, alcohol-related child-abuse and neglect, etc.

    I should add that of course there are also millions of Americans who use alcohol responsibly and in moderation.

    “Yeah because, you know, musicians are little Einsteins don’t you know.”

    usually more gifted than law enforcement officials who support cannabis prohibition.

    most people will say that Louis Armstrong was arrested for smoking marijuana, but it was really about him being black man.

    For every brilliant & successful musician who uses pot there are 999 who are losers.

    “The State oppresses and the law cheats
    Tax bleeds the unfortunate
    No duty is imposed on the rich
    The rights of the poor is an empty phrase
    Enough languishing in custody
    Equality wants other laws:
    No rights without duties, she says,
    Equally, no duties without rights
    |: This is the final struggle.”
    The International, 1922
    Nineteen Twenty-two.
    There’s a lot to agree with in that political chant. But with lines like: “On making heroes of us,
    They will know soon that our bullets
    Are for our own generals…” it’s obvious that it was a tool of propaganda. Words are meaningless. Every speech, by every politician, every psychopathic world leader; is filled with great lofty words.
    The implication is clear. Associate any and all talk of this public, taking back this government; with 19th century coups and murders associated with the writings of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin.
    Do these dudes live in Honeydew? Why should one have argue about some past history that has nothing to do with regaining control of the government from business interests.
    It’s all so weak. After the association is made, it comes with a complete history tailored by the rick licensees of the public airways and satellites.
    It is only “This way, or, that way!” Why? Because those are the only two ways you own.
    But in reality there are as many ways to do a thing, as there are people involved in getting the thing done.

    My political ideology isn’t influenced by weed, my weed is influenced by my political ideology. Cull all the stragglers and runts to maximize growth potential. If one strain happens to be the most potent then I ain’t about to put the others on weed welfare. Ain’t no universal health care neither, if they get mites then come morning they compost. Elderly seed stock might get put on weed social security but that’s really being gracious for research and development purposes. Once they are replaced by a vibrant young phenotype, them oldies are compost too.

    I think we should legalize all drugs & let the drugs cull all the stupid people out to maximise society growth potential.

    FWIW, there won’t be much long term tax revenue coming in anyway.

    USA Today has article about pot prices under legalization. It cites Allen St. Pierre, executive director of NORML. “St. Pierre says Norml expects the price could eventually fall to something comparable to a pack of cigarettes.” But thats just his opinion. Why would he know anything about it? Right?

    There is truth to that.

    CYP2E1, ADH, ALDH2, and other dehydrogenase inhibitor shit are associated with alcoholism prevalence.

    Many black folks have a protective ALDH3 variance where toilet-gripping hangovers prevent recurring binge drinking. Not all, just many.

    Since Northern Europeans just figured out science and beer and all that shit in recent history, their population hasn’t been exposed. The Romans sure as fuck surprised them when they had wine and shit when the rolled in. The rest of old world ethnic groups were already perfecting hard liquor and shit by the time all that happened.

    If you look at all them ethnic groups who already had drunks for five thousand years and shit, high percents of them had some sort of swole cherry-faced allergy or hangover that made alcohol abuse less fun. White people and Indians tho just had the alcohol be super-charged and low rates of protective genetics.

    What I’m saying is if we just let everybody do drugs as you say, the population genetics for problem drug addicts will come to equilibrium hella quicker.

    Great. This will put a dent in the home growers. If these businesses can turn out some good marijuana and lots of it, prices will drop and it will be useless trying to compete against them.

    Also, more taxes for Eureka and less violence (the businesses can use the courts).

    Marijuana is much safer than alcohol and produces less losers than alcohol.

    Also, stop bitching about the crime in this city. You voted to keep a Zoo instead of funding our police and fire departments.

    The increased crime in Eureka has a lot to do with the fact that this once rural area is urbanizing and the locals want to pretend that is the same little small town that it has always been. Wake up, start supporting social programs and increase funding to our police.
