HRlocal20 3 years, 5 months ago on Students, parents invited to Marijuana education forum Friday, 5 p.m. at HRVHS

It's appalling that Sabet--a prohibitionist charlatan, an "assistant professor of psychiatry" who has no medical training (he has a BA in political science and a Ph.D in "social policy"), a man whose every argument for prohibition of marijuana has been thoroughly debunked, a man whose organization advocates for the arrest of repeat marijuana users--is given a forum for his lies and misinformation at our high school. These "preventation specialists" and "addiction counselors" are so afraid of losing their livelihoods when marijuana inevitably becomes legal that they are happy to give exclusive distribution rights of a relatively harmless drug to murderous drug cartels. How else to explain the fallacious arguments these prohibitionists use to further their cause? It's all about their paychecks, regardless of the facts on marijuana. How much does Sabet rake in from these "educational" forums? Measure 91 can't be passed soon enough.


HRlocal20 4 years, 1 month ago on Ryan dials back debt dispute with $200K payment

Has Ryan paid back any of the outstanding $41K of remaining debt to the city since this article was written last November? If not, why not and what action is the city taking to collect this debt? Has this debt been accruing interest? Any other sewer customer would have had their water shut off after being in arrears for for this long--why is Ryan getting special treatment?


HRlocal20 4 years, 1 month ago on Council members question Francis over deferment deal given to Ryan’s Juice

It is my understanding that as of last November, Ryan's Juice still owed $40,000 of this debt to the city and he has refused to pay. Is the city taking any action to recover the remaining debt? Ryan needs to pay what he owes, like any other city utilities customer.


HRlocal20 4 years, 1 month ago on Roots and Branches: A legalization lament

The falsehoods, unsupported assertions/anecdotal evidence, and gross generalizations in this column regarding marijuana and its legalization only betray the weakness of Ms. Yasui's arguments. Conflating alcohol use with marijuana use? Please! Ms. Yasui, you--like the alcohol prohibitionists before you--are on the wrong side of history on this issue.


HRlocal20 4 years, 4 months ago on Negotiations continue on Ryan’s Juice deferment deal

I'd say the city has treated Ryan pretty well. Most sewage customers who don't pay their bills on time get their water shut off after a few months. Ryan has had a few years to pay what he owes.
