    My drive in got sketchy on Lahser. Thankfully I’m in a truck. People driving under ten though should probably have called off work.

    Under 10 Mile? I'm 96 and 696 into work. I'm going to burn some time at home to let traffic clear before heading in. Snow day number 10 for the kids.

    In high school, I slid right through the light into the ditch during a storm while coming down the hill on Lahser and Long Lake.

    Niles is having a huge fight over rec store fronts right now. The outgoing council killed them and the newbies want them but there is some weird law so they can't do it just yet. We have huge grow facilities coming in and may not be able to store front them. Maybe it's the same where he is? (We do have med shops).

    The ballot initiative has gone into effect. Local municipalities may be banning rec stores though.

    I don't smoke but maybe once a year so no. I do have a buddy who has his plant limit and is hoping to expand to sell to store fronts. I should get some seeds from him and throw them out back to see what happens.

    The ballot initiative has gone into effect allowing the legal possession and consumption of marijuana, but it didn't have licensing governance in it. It says the state has until this coming December to figure out licensing for sales and if they don't, at that point the municipalities are on their own. Until the state or municipalities act, there is no licensing mechanism for rec sales.

    I love their buffalo wings. I love the way they crisp them. The dry rub is also solid, but the wings and some chips and pico are my go to.

    Also a PSA for those in the area:

    Iron Horse in Royal Oak is great. They have awesome monthly food specials, but most importantly, they offer a monthly cheesecake that is always amazing. This month is peanut butter. I highly recommend you try it out.
