    Ok, I'm just going to ask what a lot of people are thinking. Now that marijuana is legal (as of Jan 1), where can we buy it in Santa Barbara County? I'm aware that the City of Santa Barbara has been ridiculously strict in allowing the businesses within the city limits, so is there anywhere in the county we can visit?

    Where to Buy a Man's Purse?

    I've been looking for a decent satchel/purse/messenger bag for men and am hitting a brick wall. There are myriad satchels/purses/messenger bags for guys online, but (a) I want to see close-up what I'm getting, and (b) I prefer buying locally. I've been to all the obvious places—Macy's, Nordstrom, H&M, REI, and several smaller retailers—but the supply of what I want is nonexistent. I don't mind spending up to a couple of hundred dollars, but first I've got to FIND something.
