And yet, Seattle seems to be doing pretty OK most days. Washington hasn’t disintegrated into a state of anarchy, nor has it had to go full Hunger Games on its good citizens.

Just thinking about all the deaths marijuana has not caused, is giving me a splitting headache. Ugh, I need a drink.

It seems as though the future of the Internet is now, you guys. We’re well past the days when Internet access was looked upon as a luxury. Considering how much of our lives is played out online and how often we access (or how infrequently we disconnect from, depending on your view) the web it’s become a utility all on its own.

“Every adult in Colorado may soon receive a $7.63 check from the state — all thanks to marijuana.” Um, can someone remind me again why it’s illegal in so many states and on the federal level? Who is marijuana hurting exactly?

Question everything.
