African hair braider fights gov't overreach and Poulsbo City Councilmember explains pot biz ban

Originally aired: Tuesday, June 17, 2014

A Kent-based hair braider is filing a lawsuit against the Washington Department of Licensing for trying to force her to get a cosmetology license that wouldn't even apply to any of the services she offers. Rantz says this is a crazy example of government overreach. The DOL has since backtracked, but Salamata Sylla is going forward with the suit. Producer Nick spoke to her earlier today. // A Swedish city could ban homework. Rantz says there's something to the idea of rethinking how we balance kids' education time. Why not make it 9-5 like work? // Poulsbo City Councilmember Ed Stern joins the show to discuss why his Council unanimously banned marijuana businesses despite the majority of Poulsbo voters voting in favor of I-502. He says the burden is too high for municipalities to enforce the marijuana laws given that the State keeps the lion's share of the tax revenue.
