There's a strong temptation to listen to Dave Stieren today. I'm willing to bet the level of self righteous indignation and feigned outrage will be quite entertaining.

Any recession that his this country has no affect on Alaska.



There is so many job openings it's crazy & the money is fantastic. While other world in that state compared to the lower 48 & no the cost of living isn't really that much higher.

?? the state is still in the US they still have Walmart, yes the cost of living is high and if you go out in winter not properly dressed you can loose parts...how about the airplane size mosquitoes and angry Moose :-)



mountain water from the tap

I guess if you are on a mountain maybe one of the many many live volcanos.
permafrost is melting ruining foundations and the some places groundwater is full of heavy minerals that has to be removed.



It is one of the largest growing populations in the USA from tourist visiting then deciding to stay.

Hum don't see it listed

Only those who are passionate themselves can arouse passion in others. Bravo Charlo!

To many have fallen prey to the war on Marijuana. There is absolutely no shortage on our streets, and your children will most certainly be presented with the evil weed. It may be best to ask yourself, if you would rather it come from a crook who is likely just as comfortable selling other substances, or a legal regulated source?

Free the green!

Woo Hoo! Way to go, promote your cause of smoking MJ! Have an emotional outburst and walk off the job! Embarrass your employer! Bite the hand that fed you! That will surely help you! (not)

In my day there were lots of times you felt like walking off the job, but you didn't if you had any self-respect. You at least were decent enough to work out a notice.

And if you're smart you don't quit a job before you have another one securely lined up, and you don't leave a path of wreckage behind you. You show a little bit of responsibility and culture.

She just did some damage to her cause she's supporting. Proves that it really is true that many pot-smokers really Are unreliable, job-hopping lazy and narcissistic.

Just because she has a business doesn't mean she smokes. Many people see the benefit of legalized MJ and they don't partake. Specious reasoning.

I just think she's a selfish......

Your username is apt for this quote:

One person?

And you lump all of them into the same category? She did have a job lined up as she did mention and how dare we judge her for speaking her mind and doing what she wants with her life.

It's a bit intellectually dishonest of you to paint all these people with the same brush...

If you will look, I said "many" not all. And it is her that chose to be a public figure while doing it on TV, I can't control the brush she uses to paint, all I do is call it like I see it.

"Doing it". What do you mean by that? Could be taken several ways.

Doing what she did...get ur mind outta the gutter..doing it was quitting on liv tv, using a word (f$%k) against FCC rules, and lumping it all together with the MJ thing she does. Wow that's really cool if you smoke a big fat doobie you can just sit and laugh about it for hours. Meanwhile, back in the real world.....

Still confused. By "doing it" I didn't mean sex, cripes, who's mind is in the gutter? I meant are you saying she's smoking herself, or promoting her company?

a reply to: intrepid
personally to me it doesn't matter if she's smoking it or just promoting it, maybe she just doesn't inhale, too, that's a possibility. I tend to think she smokes, that's my impression, I could find out by doing the research, just don't want to know that badly. No matter, either way, she did her cause harm in what she did/said on live tv and how she quit her job. I mean, really, what's the point?

Do you see the support she's getting.....even in just this thread? THAT was the point. I think she was just fine up until she used a vulgarity when it was uncalled for. She would have gotten the same reaction with, "This place blows. I quit."

So she went from an advocate to a drug dealing pot grower? All from just that short clip? Or are you jumping to conclusions and vilifying her? a reply to: thesaneone

For sure she's going to get a lot of "instant gratification support" from like-minded tokers. A year from now or 5 years from now it might be different. She probably just slammed one door behind her for good.

See this is what's bothering me. You are assuming she's a toker. She might just be a damn smart business woman. Foul mouthed one but one none the less.
