MARTA DAHLIG / deviantART Alaska Cannabusiness Gets Ready to Take Off “I want to see Juneau become a forerunner,” says restaurant owner Tracy LaBarge. “I want to see it done in a very responsible and classy way.” She’s referring to the implementation of Measure 2, a voter-approved ballot initiative legalizing recreational marijuana in Alaska. Along with other pro-weed residents, LaBarge testified in January before the Juneau City and Borough Assembly, which had proposed a 12-month moratorium on issuing land-use and other permits for pot businesses. The good news: They talked the assembly down to a six-month delay. As it stands, the earliest that weed shops, smoke lounges and bars can be operational is May 2016. The business people don’t really need the delay, but lawmakers probably do. LaBarge, who owns four restaurants and bars in the area, believes that the existing laws regulating alcohol sales can serve as a template for weed regs. Other parts of the state have also seen evidence that change is a-coming. (Photo by Chris Beck)

Being able to listen to music on the go is a wonderful thing; you can take your favorite melodies with you anywhere you please and use them to shut off from the rest of the world. And all that untangling and pulling doesn’t do the wires any good, which often break, warranting a new pair pretty regularly. Thankfully, there are people out there that have realized our frustrations and woes, and have gone and done something about it. These earphones were born out of German startup company Bragi, which received almost $3.5 million from 16,000 backers on Kickstarter. Given the importance of good fit, the team used ear molds acquired from hearing aid companies to guide their design. So what’s the catch? [Via Bragi and The Verge]
