@Rhayader, I wish they had them where I live. Great pizza, and a fine selection of micro-brews on tap. Fortunately, I visit Atlanta and RTP frequently and never fail to stop by the Mellow Mushroom.
And then there’s the Cheba Hut Toasted Subs franchise. Their slogan: “WHERE THE ONLY THING FRIED IS THE OCCASIONAL CUSTOMER!”
Cheba Hut Toasted Subs was founded in 1998 by Scott Jennings. Scott opened the first store near the campus of Arizona State University where he attended college. As a delivery driver, Scott noticed a severely underserved market for late night deliveries. Food that was delivered on campus usually lacked in quality. He also noticed that on most of his late night deliveries, his customers were…um…inhaling! Scott put two and two together and developed the Cheba Hut “Toasted” Subs concept. Today, Scott leads the ever growing franchise community as President and CEO.
I’m pushin’ 53, been smokin’ since I was 13 and have gotten a BS & MS and been professionally employed doin’ software while raising a family, payin’ the bills/taxes and buying a house gettin’ the boys through college on a single income. When is all the bad stuff “they” promise going to start kicking in?
Been a (mostly) daily toker for over 40 years. Raised a family, married to same man for 47 years. We are now retired, not what anyone would call wealthy, but we have enough in our IRA account to last us another 30 years at our current rate of spending. We may not be successful in the sense of doing something big in the business world, we were just wage slaves, but we do own our home, and our kids all have great blue collar jobs, none of which is going to go away anytime soon, they all supply necessary services (and they are all tokers, too).
In our rural neighborhood, over half our neighbors are also tokers.
Most of my family also tokes, some more than others. They just know better than to do it around me (allergic – not opposed). I got teased mercilessly in high school and college about my reaction to pot (also called maryjoejuana by my elderly civics teacher – it took awhile to figure out what he was talking about). I have no problem with legalizing it, taxing it and regulating where it can and can’t be smoked, just like tobacco (which I’m also allergic to).
I use and want marijuana legal. Oh and I vote and live in California. What I don’t want , however,is the gov’t regulating and taxing it. It’s a plant! As a parent myself, I’m not worried about “the children” getting their hands on it. News flash: They already do.
