Pot Wars On Stanyan: The Case Of The Stoners Next Door

Posted By on Wed, Jan 9, 2008 at 9:00 AM


An interesting case of my-neighbor-is-an incorrigible-stoner has popped up over at Curbed SF:

" ... the apartment next door is a total hash den, and I can barely stand it anymore. It's 4:20 every hour, and the smoke just seeps through walls, I swear."

The call for advice has elicited the predictably polarized reactions among commenters, ranging from "call the FEDS" to "either suck it up and deal with it, or move." It is important to note that the apartment dweller in question lives on Stanyan Street in the Haight, a notoriously stoney SF hood, and likewise -- let's face facts here folks -- should have known. As another commenter puts it: "Just walk down Stanyan and you'll get a contact high."

Call me naive, but I don't think the feds are going to come knocking down doors because someone doesn't like to smell of doobies. And forget police intervention, because -- don't forget -- marijuana offenses are the SFPD's "lowest priority." (via Curbed SF)

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
