Remember Garrison Keillor’s Lake Wobegon, where all of the children are above average?
Redwood City has released a list of applicants for the six licenses it will issue for cannabis stores, and every one of them got a rating of 85% or better in the first round (see chart at bottom).
City Manager Melissa Stevenson Diaz’s list says 15 of the 27 applicants got scores better than 99%, and three received perfect scores.
Wow! How could the city go wrong when picking the six winners? Everybody is above average, just like the kids in Lake Wobegon.
But a little digging shows some of the applicants getting high ratings have significant problems.
Take TAT Redwood City, also known as The Artist Tree, a Los Angeles operator trying to get a foothold in Northern California.
How did that lawsuit slip by the people in Stevenson Diaz’s office, who gave TAT a 100% score?
It should be noted
