When I started hanging out in the US one of the things I was surprised about is how much more stigmatized pot use was in the US. I always found that funny as the US had the whole crack thing going on at the time, and even now, it has the whole opioid thing. I can remember in the 80s sparking up inside bars, and if staff ever said anything, it was along the lines of, "Hey, could you just go smoke on the patio?"

One of the local Indian restaurants updated their website. I think they forgot about the "staff" section, though.

Those are the whitest names I've ever seen.
I’m always having to come up with names for fake college students, I’m about as creative as whoever did this, even if they’re POC names:

Jose Gonzalez
Ashish Patel
Etc

In the early ‘90s, right after I moved to San Francisco, I ushered at The Warfield, a large venue owned by Bill Graham Presents. I was very pleasantly surprised to learn that the house rule was to crack down hard on tobacco smoking, but to just make sure the weed stayed in the auditorium and out of the lobby and bathrooms.

When I came to California, after living in Texas where we stuffed towels under the doors of the rooms when we smoked, I was walking through Civic Center and observed a couple guys smoking on a park bench. 🌈 I was at Winterland I can't remember who was playing, probably the Dead since I missed very few of their shows there, when someone threw a can or bottle on the stage. Bill stormed onto the stage, stopped the music and turned up the house lights. He began to berate "whoever" that chickenshit motherfucker was and offered to personally kick his ass right then and there. It was quite a scene on ahead full of windowpane I must admit. Alcohol was never permitted at a BGP show from that point on.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
