San Francisco embraces Amsterdam-style marijuana lounges

  SAN FRANCISCO --- The smoke was thick and business brisk at the Barbary Coast Dispensary's marijuana smoking lounge, a darkened room that resembles a steakhouse or upscale sports tavern with its red leather seats, deep booths with high dividers, and hardwood floors.   "There's nothing like this in Jersey," said grinning Atlantic City resident Rick Thompson, getting high with his cousins in San Francisco.   In fact, there's nothing like the Barbary Coast lounge almost anywhere in the United States, a conundrum confronting many marijuana enthusiasts who find it increasingly easy to buy pot but harder to find legal places to smoke it.   Only Ca...Keep on reading: San Francisco embraces Amsterdam-style marijuana lounges.....»»

Pantino, Eala book quarterfinal seats

Filipino top bet Arthur Craig Pantino crushed Chinese Taipei’s Chen Kuan-yu, 6-0, 6-4, Thursday to barge into the quarterfinals of the boys singles of the Phinma-PSC International Juniors tennis championships at Manila Polo Club clay courts. Pantino, who won boys singles in Week 2 of this tournament last year, will gun for a semifinal seat on Friday against either fellow Filipino Aljon Talatayod or 8th seed Corban Crowther of New Zealand who were still locked in battle. The 17-year-old Pantino also swept the boys’ doubles last year pairing with Miko Eala and John Bryan Otico in Weeks 1 and 2, respectively, making him one of the tourney’s top bet. Another local hopeful advanced after Alex Eala sustained her grit and form, turning back Japanese Erika Matsuda, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, to make the girls singles quarterfinals. The 13-year-old wonder became the only remaining Filipina campaigner after compatriot Amanda Gabrielle Zoleta dropped a 6-2, 6-0 decision at the hands of top seed Janice Tjen of Indonesia earlier. Seeded eighth, Eala will next take on Chinese Taipei qualifier Li Yu-yun who trounced Samantha Nanere of Indonesia, 6-3, 6-1, in the meet sponsored by the Philippine Tennis Association, Philippine Sports Commission, Phinma and Tecnofibre. Girls No. 2 ranked Saki Oyama of Japan clobbered Tsai Yun-chin of Chinese Taipei, 6-1, 6-1, to move to the quarterfinals against sixth seed Taiwanese Fang Wei-ning, a 3-6, 6-0, 6-0 victor over Australia’s Jessica Jade Haylo. Tjen will next take on seventh seed Tian Fang-an who hurdled Japanese Mei Hasegawa, 2-6, 6-2, 6-2......»»
