There's nothing good about being homeless. It's not a choice for people who are.

Explain to me how being homeless removes some one from obeying the drug laws that the non homeless have to obey. No city council has this power.

Yup, nothing creepy or weird about either of Those scenarios. BTW, you're not homeless, just a freeloader being enabled by your mommy and daddy.
You sound grumpy.

Nor did the city of Seattle do any such thing. Poster is talking through his hat.

Yikes, try doing it when you're 65 and have no parents or nothing to fall back on. You may call it carefree but I call it irresponsible. To me you are so far behind that you may never catch up. Scary. Sorry but I just can't relate. Just give your future a ten second thought, okay?

If that is true, then why would you possibly care what a bunch of strangers on an anonymous thread care what you do with your life? It's a free choice to make for your self - knock yourself out dude....

Maybe the poster could not read. However, Seattle is having a homeless problem due to the young homeless flocking to Seattle and parts of CO due to the legalization of Marijuana.
I find it rather ironice
