    It appears this council not only wants to do away with most boundaries, rules, and even laws but seeks to do the same with decriminalizing all forms of psychedelic drugs.  That’s exactly what we need – more stoners barfing on the sidewalks and tripping in parks.  They’ve all ingested a few too many mushrooms.  Instead of finding ways to better serve and protect the folks who pay their salaries, they pander to altered minds.  I’d love to be able to put forth a vote of no confidence for the whole lot of them.

      First, your need to characterize individuals as lower than yourself tells us a lot about your character. Rather than help people, it is clearly far easier to cast them aside as irredeemable and needing to be removed.

      Regarding psycobillin specifically, there is evidence that it can help treat substance addictions and abuse, in other words, it may prove helpful to your goal of not having “stoners barfing on the sidewalks and tripping in parks.”

      Regardless, rather than look down on individuals, consider lending your voice and effort toward correcting the systemic problems that lead to so many becoming dependent on drugs.

    Can someone please explain why we want to legalize mind  altering substances. It’s never been and interest to screw up my mind so I’m not really familiar with the desire and reasoning to legalize these things. Will it specifically name with plants and substances? Also, from a legal perspective how does renaming codes from single family dwelling to neighborhood residential  change things? Can a lot have multiple tents and structures or is it about tiny homes in the back yard?

    • Blbl October 4, 2021 (1:41 pm)

      Why we want to legalize them? Many reasons – substantial evidence of mental health benefits, criminal enforcement is biased and racist, significant recreational use market (regulation = safer products and tax revenues). 

      But if it has never been an interest to you, you still don’t have to do it!

      • Buttercup October 5, 2021 (12:14 pm)

        Bibi, just because I am not interested in using these substances doesn’t mean I can’t understand what the changes are and how it effects society. That last sentence was a little snotty sounding. 

        • Blbl October 6, 2021 (7:43 pm)

          You literally asked the question and I answered it. Just because you can’t understand it, doesn’t make it wrong. 

    • Kevin on Delridge October 4, 2021 (3:25 pm)

      You can read about the substances here: 


      And just curious, any reason you felt the need to cast aspersions at those who wish to partake in things that have no impact on you directly? Why not simply ask the question if you’re truly unfamiliar with these substances?

      • Buttercup October 5, 2021 (12:18 pm)

        I didn’t cast aspirations on anyone who wants to use these substances , only pointed the truth of what they do and trying to understand what they’re about. 

        • Wdj2 October 5, 2021 (3:11 pm)

          Actually, you did refer to their use as “screwing up their minds”, which isn’t exactly a statement of praise. Of course you’re free to have any opinion that you’d like. However, talking as if there was no judgement in your original post, downplays what’s really quite obvious.

  • Guy Olson October 4, 2021 (2:16 pm)

    What up West Seattle? Facebook is down so I’m here seeing what’s happening.
