Simon should be put before a judge, fined several 100 thousand dollars, have his restaurants closed and be barred by the judge from discussing anything about his case! (In the same manner that our government treated the couple who refused to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple!). Put that on your grill and smoke it!

I guess we need to shut everything down and move back into tepees, caves and tents.
Look what inner city youth had done to Cleveland and Chicago and Detroit. Let's clean up that mess first.
I believe that education needs to continue on this subject. Most Ohioans view it as a negative thing when in reality it is no different than someone drinking. Look at the tax money that can be collected by the state. Colorado in 2016 collected $150.00 million, why are we so close minded in Ohio?
I do not smoke pot nor will I when it is legal but I do see the advantages to it. You have people suffering and using drugs that will harm them or even kill them. Let them smoke pot without being punished for it. Look at the opioid epidemic currently happening in every state right now. We are trying to come up with something to help them, why not let them smoke weed?
As a business person I can see great potential here. I personally would love to open a shop with a variety of different flavors for people to purchase legally. I think that offering candies, oils, wax, and marijuana would be very profitable. People are going to do it no matter what why not make a profit off of it.
I have worked in the medical field for 30 years and I am very surprised more physicians are not on board with this. We feed the pharmaceutical companies every day with income over drugs that potentially cause more harm than good over time. So why not get on board with something more natural?
In your article you state that there are only going to be 24 licenses distributed throughout Ohio, I honestly hope this gets distributed to rural communities as well. It is hard for people to travel an hour plus to a larger city to see providers and get prescriptions they cannot get at home.
So the Rover pipeline caused a mess? Sounds a lot like that other Rover, the mess on morning drive-time radio. He pollutes the airwaves every weekday. And what the hell is drilling fluid, anyway? Two million gallons? The mind boggles.
Who is bentonite named for? Thomas Hart Benton? Barbi Benton? Inquiring minds wanna know!
Sounds like business as usual in North Missitucky...another day, another dollar.

Socialism for the filthy rich is the American Way!
Is this Gary Coiro the same man now married to Tracey Tiernan?!
Yeah. to East Cleveland., as University Circle's gentrification wave will break in that direction, and the smart money will get on their smartphones and pick up a whole block for a song. Smart!
Hell, maybe they'll only need to hum a few bars.
The artsy-fartsy crowd got pushed out of Tremont. Then Ohio City. And finally Gordon Square.
Next stop...North Collinwood? That will go the way of the other places, too. They all do.
It's the way of the world. Happens everywhere.

if it's not broke, why fix it ? You had a hell of a run Norm-Thank you
WCPN's Weekly Regional News Round Up host Rick Jackson briefly mentioned recent crime near the campus area as a possible reason for the alert notification concern from students and their family members.
* big knowing sigh....
I'd say, several hundred brave people made this all possible over 20-30 years perseverance. Amazing.
Now the cash is pouring in.
Smart people are now looking East.
And so the saga continues, and the Brooklynization of the Near West Side marches on like an army of steamrollers. Ohio City today, Gordon Square tomorrow...and who knows what else...and where else...in a month or a year.
Hingetown, we hardly knew ye. Stupid name anyway, Still Ohio City to most folks.
Make way for the rowdy late-night drinkers, and the hordes of well-heeled Millennial yupsters who will visit, and the young high-rolers who will reside there, stacked up on top of each other like cans of beans in a grocery display. Good-bye to the older, long-time has-beans.
If the affluent and beer-fueled corner of 29th and Detroit MUST have a label...I humbly suggest...Bingetown.

Can't help but notice that the two people who don't live here and aren't part of the longtime near west side community are also unwilling to post under their own names while disparaging the neighbhorhood. Brave stuff right there.
I was lucky enough to sample the chicken & sausage gumbo at the Fabulous Food show, and I haven't stopped thinking about it since! Absolutely delicious!
Jaison Boyd is an amazing person! I worked with him in the past and if there's any place u should eat,for great food and great hospitality,NCE is the place!
The students have every right to be angry. Their anger should be directed at the city of Cleveland leadership. The event of that day was sad. The pathetic aspect of that day is the city waited 4 hours to notify any and everybody of an active shooter within the city.
Several within the media are not asking the hard and right questions of the mayor and the police chief. Why the delay?
Oh please. This guy lives a block south of DETROIT AVENUE, one of the main thoroughfares of the entire western half of Cuyahoga County. It's not like they're proposing an 11-story building on Whitman. Detroit's a main street- it should look like and have the vibe of one!
Thank you, Eric, for covering this and bringing attention to those of us who have lived and worked to have genuine community here for decades.
In my experience - which obviously limited to the life that I've lived, your experience may vary - folks that say "I got out of there" weren't "getting out" of anywhere, but rather looking for something outside of themselves, their identity and that of their place hopelessly entangled.
Getting out becomes getting away - from themselves and the place where they are that person, ascribing too little to themselves, and assigning the remainder to "place."
It's easier to find a new you in a new context. Doesn't make the old place bad or shameful, as much as you might protest. But place and identity aren't a husk that you molt and leave behind; it's essential foundation. Embrace it and embrace yourself.
Long story short, people are going to get drunk. People are going to be hungover. In Cleveland, New York, L.A., and every place in between. Documented life experience isn't a "negative" unless you choose to view it that way. Drop your shame, and you might find that you like yourself a little better.
At minimum, the rest of us will.

Oh yes, let's make sure Ohio City doesn't lose the character of its glory days from 1950 - 2010 :eyeroll:
