Don Helley's eviction reminds us that the culture war on cannabis
users routinely violates human rights, and apparently the folks at
Common Wealth were "just following orders" when they made the decision
to evict an everyday Madisonian and model tenant for botanical crimes.
"Common Wealth Boots Longtime Tenant" (Watchdog, 5/30/03)

Common Wealth getting all sanctimonious about drug use while itself
benefiting from the sales of the legal drug alcohol at the Willy St.
Fair seems a tad hypocritical, and they no doubt have had more
problems with tenants abusing alcohol than marijuana.
