Reminder: I’ll be hosting the FDL Book Salon with Keith Stroup, author of “Itâ€™s NORML to Smoke Pot: The 40 Year Fight for Marijuana Smokersâ€™ Rights”
Today (Sunday) 2 pm Pacific, 4 Central, 5 Eastern
Should be fun. Bring your questions.
I went to the link but it is not clear to me how to listen in.
It’s not audio. It’s a text-based chat. Once the salon starts, you’ll see the questions and answers posted like an ongoing thread at the bottom of that page. You’ll have to log in to participate, but you should be able to read without doing so.
OT but Allan, WTF is going on in your State?
There’s nothing more refreshing than standing in a cool, summertime rain shower. Or bathing in the warm sunlight on a crisp spring day. Or inhaling the cool autumn air, fresh with the scent of turning leaves and pine needles. These things — rainwater, sunlight, air — have long been assumed to be not only free, but un-claimable. You can’t claim to own the sunlight that falls on my front yard, for example. A corporation can’t claim intellectual property ownership over the air that you breathe and demand you pay a royalty for inhaling.
But today, Jackson County, Oregon says it owns YOUR rainwater, and the county has sentenced a man to 30 days in jail and fined him over $1500, for the supposed “crime” of collecting rainwater on his own property.
Another OT: In Colorado they’re planning to sell licenses to shoot down US drones!
It worked for me.
