Last Sunday, a house went on a journey across Berkeley. To be precise, it was half a house, the top half, and eagle-eyed Berkeleyans may have spotted it making its way, slowly, at walking pace, from Albany Village into Berkeley on 8th Street, then down Gilman, down 6th onto University and then along Sacramento until it reached its new home on 62nd Street.
Berkeley Patients Group (BPG), the city’s largest medical marijuana dispensary, owes more than $6.4 million in back taxes and interest, according to the state’s Board of Equalization (BOE). The BOE confirmed their original assessment of taxes at its meeting in Sacramento this week. Berkeleyside revealed the tax dispute earlier this month.
“The whiter the bread, the sooner you’ll be dead.” “Stop before you’re full.” “Don’t buy cereals that change the color of the milk.” These are just some of the many tips that Berkeley author Michael Pollan included in his compact book Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, which contained 64 rules for eating well.
