    We may need to close the snowboard dispensaries, they’re products are potentially harmful. My heart goes out to the family, this is a terribly unfortunate accident.

      Close the snowboard dispensaries? Escape from the loony bin did we? They’re no more dangerous than skis. Everything is “potentially harmful.” I have an idea. You sit at home in your padded house and learn the difference between “they’re” and “their” while I’m up enjoying the fresh powder and living my life.
