One of my favorite paces to eat is a joint right on the Canadian border in Blaine called Big Al's Diner.

Right across the street - right on the border practically - is a little convenience store with a 75' sign you can see from Canada advertising their "deals".

Budweiser $18.95/12-pack

Butter $6/lb

Eggs $4.49/dozen

Anywhere else, except maybe Alaska, you'd keep prices that high a secret.

1300 is considered a high deductible. That should provide a lot of peace.
But, if you're a big risk taker, go for the no insurance option, then beg strangers for the money for medical bills

Not everyone is rolliní as hard as me so I try to help out where I can.

"Hey doods before you judge me let me tell my story. My so called "friends" came over last night to have a massage party and sesh. They showed up and would not stop asking me for phat bowls of my kush. I ended up sharing all my weed with my so called "fam". I am now %100 completely out of herbskies. As sad as this may sound I was so hurting I almost smoked a heaping bowl of resin this morning. If you couldfind it in your hearts to donate even a cent to my cause, it would be beyond appreciated. I am seriously jonesing for a smoke. Thank you all for listening to my story and possiblty donating towards my dub. For real thanks. Much love fam. #love and light #blessed
Help spread the word!"

You gotta respect the gofundme folks who sit at cold, noisy intersections with cardboard hand written appeals while absorbing the stinkeye from passing motorists. The internet ones, iím not so sure about.

Gotta love the internet, so many choices. If compassion is not your cup of tea you could always donate to fund scientific research
