SLO residents argue for and against proposed cannabis stores, rules

San Luis Obispo appears to be on its way to allowing the county’s first recreational marijuana stores. The City Council on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2018, heard public comments from about a dozen cannabis industry representatives and marijuana users who argued for permissive city policies. The council also heard from a handful of community members and activists who warned of negative consequences. One opponent even read a poem he wrote: "Why take a chance with risky plants?"

This is what Oroville Dam spillway looks like mid-February 2018

A gaping hole was discovered in the Oroville Dam main spillway on Feb. 7, 2017, marking the start of a crisis that eventually led to the evacuation of 188,000 downstream residents. A little over a year later, work continues between the emergency spillway weir and cut-off wall, prepping the ground for the splashpad.
