      Silly people, don’t you know selling dope is only legal if you tax it? Speaking of which, anyone know when we will get our first big payday from the legal pot shops we have? Can we get a photo op with a big fat check? Based on a year of current data, I’m calculating Norwalk’s cut will be about $200k. That’s sure going to pay for a lot of overtime. At least 20 hours of OT a week for the entire force. Or about 6 minutes per. Let the good times roll.

      Right on Bryan. Isnt it lovely how big the sign is a Fine Fettle too? How come our local dignitaries didnt stop by and cut the ribbon and put the picture all over the place? I wonder if that smoke is good for people to inhale in public? Must only be the backpack blowers that create hysteria! Thats an awesome corner of town now. You can get coffee on one corner, pizza on the other, and a pre rolled joints on the other. I am sure glad the apartments are bringing in these new businesses
