legalization of weed was smart and had to be done.   but now its everywhere, you can't walk down a block in JH without smelling it. 


Could you imagine the 10xboom in e-bikes if they were legal.  They would be everywhere,  those silent 70 lbs battering rams cruising up and down the sidewalks of JH?   

thank god he vetoed it

Some say that the lack of enforcement of marijuana led to the murder of the Barnard student.

Maybe we should allow the sale of weed only on electric scooters.

some say that closing every bar in america would result in a drop in drunk driving deaths.

as long as the ban extends to amazon and UPS, companies that seem to be getting the green light to operate them.

and as long as we pull the e-bike Citibikes immediately as well.

This thread is so wacky talking about weed and amazon and everything but ebikes, but anyway, one of these silent battery-pack bikes hit a woman on 90th yesterday. She was very shaken, crying, and couldn't get up.

The biker stayed at the scene.

Making an attempt at humor when a 70 year old woman was killed is in very poor taste.
