Two employees cited for violating "holy place" rule regarding in bringing sack lunches to work with meat.
The owner of two medical marijuana dispensaries, Robert Cox; just demonstrated his lack of tolerance this past week, by scolding & suspending an employee for bringing a sack lunch to work with a meat sandwich which was stored in the back room refrigerator.
It's not clear how the employer discovered the contents of a sealed lunch meal, but the employer quickly took the employee off the schedule and accused her of violating "the holy space we've created at Friendly".
The shops have a very unique history, especially at the Norman location where they were raided a few years ago for selling pipes that could accommodate smoking more than just tobacco.
The shop manager, Stephen Holman; personifies much of the hipster image. He ran for city council of Norman and won. The police and prosecutor failed to get a conviction, but kept the contents of pipes they confiscated. Those same pipes are now legal, given the outcome of SQ788, which included paraphernalia in the medical marijuana reform law.
Holman, who's likeness is the iconic logo of Friendly Markets, defends the owner's right to ban employees from taking meat products to work.
President Donald Trump invested heavily and personally, toward a big win in Louisiana's statewide elections. The former French colony still does things very different than the rest of the states; holding elections on Saturday is just one of the uniquely Bayou traditions. Republican Rispone is taking on Democrat incumbent, Edwards; in the statewide race.
Former President Barack Obama made a rare foray into the cultural conversation this week, objecting to the prevalence of “call-out culture” and “wokeness” during an interview about youth activism at the Obama Foundation summit on Tuesday, in Chicago. Fox News and other independent media carried the message quickly, but it took two or more days for other outlets to discover this speech.
We wish to commend the ordinarily unreliable editors of the New York Times for finally publishing the transcribed speech that Barack Obama shared with younger adults, at his foundation's 'Summit' event. We're sharing part of how the NYT & Fox News described it.
