This is a picture of Sacramento Street in Berkeley, taken this afternoon before the rain broke out.
So, the news has not only finally registered with his friends, it has moved and mobilized Berkeley's City Council to acknowledge a beloved neighbor's departure and absence from these parts. In honor of his dedication to the cause and his quiet but troublesome presence in the Bay Area, Measure JJ has been put on the upcoming election's ballot in Berkeley to amend "ordinances to eliminate limits on medical marijuana possessed by patients or caregivers; establish a peer review group for medical marijuana collectives to police themselves; and permit medical marijuana dispensaries as a matter of right under the zoning ordinance rather than through a use permit, subject to a public hearing." They are calling the measure "JJ" to honor the beloved friend and neighbor.
I thought if I shared the local news with our determined traveler, when he is ready to return to the US to settle down, he would remember which city's politics and loyalty he might find most appealing.
Be safe Jahanshah.
