Houses and Pot
I'm working today so just a couple of links to amuse you. If you're wondering how much your house has fluctuated in value, cyberhomes.com has a cool widget that will tell you and also in some cases, will bring up a picture of your house. I thought that part was spooky but the tool is cool.
On a brighter note, this is the fun story of the day. Oaksterdam College, where for $200 bucks and the price of couple of textbooks, you can learn about the fine art of growing superior marijuana.
''My basic idea is to try to professionalize the industry and have it taken seriously as a real industry, just like beer and distilling hard alcohol,'' said Richard Lee, 45, an activist and pot-dispensary owner who founded the school in a downtown storefront last fall.
I think it's great idea. Needless to say, the cops aren't that thrilled but the DEA says they aren't going to try to shut it down even though they keep a small amount of pot on the campus. I'd bet money, they will be tracking the graduates though.
