Good day in the Evergreen State: legal cannabis went on sale in Bellingham (and across the state in approx 24 stores) this morning at 8 am. The line of customers stretches around the block, and we’re nearly matched by the number of reporters, TV crews and photographers covering the celebration – national media, Canadian, Global TV. TODAY is the real Independence Day – freedom from prohibition, superstition, paranoia, propaganda and the failed War on Drugs!

Update from the reader:
Thanks for posting my photo – that’s my buddy Kevin Nelson with the Beard of the Week! Thought I’d update you on the legal sale of weed here today:

Update from a reader:
“My own response is somehow more complex.” Just think what your reaction would have been if that had been a beaver on his face.

His name is Ricki Hall – or on Twitter, RickiFuckinHall – and he’s a 27-year old former mechanic from Wolverhampton in northern England. Esquire Weekly has now crowned him with “the most influential haircut in Britain.” So happy he’s supplanted follicularly-challenged DavidFuckinBeckham.
