Re: Home De-Pot

I just put in an order for every vanity in Mass. Kinda like buying all the numbers in the lottery.

If marijuana was legal, I'd be one stoned dude.

"In each incident being investigated by Tewksbury Police, all of the merchandise boxes originated from a Texas location and were distributed through one undisclosed Massachusetts warehouse, Peterson said."

This is gonna bring new meaning to the term "inventory control"... I wonder how much those "customers" really found versus what was reported to police.

Re: Home De-Pot

I've often said that home depot could use a liquor aisle, as by my third trip there in a day to finish a project, i'm just about ready for some.

This takes that idea to a new level.

You forget, you're in California now. With a Rx, it's legal.

My husband said the same thing when he saw it on TV. He wanted to run up to the Home Cheapo near us but decided we didn't need a new vanity
