In November voters in the states of Colorado and Washington approved ballot initiatives that legalized marijuana for recreational use. Two years later, Alaska and Oregon followed suit. As many as 11 other states may consider similar measures in November , through either ballot initiative or legislative action. Advocates think legalization reduces crime, raises tax revenue, lowers criminal justice expenditures, improves public health, bolsters traffic safety, and stimulates the economy. Critics argue that legalization spurs marijuana and other drug or alcohol use, increases crime, diminishes traffic safety, harms public health, and lowers teen educational achievement. Systematic evaluation of these claims, however, has been largely absent.

City of Reality is a webcomic by Ian Samson, best known before this for his work as a guest artist for The Wotch and other Transformation Comics. He also has an online portfolio of various transformation art, including Idle Minds and QT 3. The titular city is set in a world that is virtually free of crime and unhappiness, where all the inhabitants have seemingly learned to get along without strife — in other words, a perfect Mary Suetopia. The mayor is a puppet — literally. Everyone is nice, all the time, even if their homes are being destroyed by a tornado or they're discovering their wife is having an affair. And the government?

It's about every 10 years that we get a new technology that's 10 times better than the previous one.
A long time ago I used to read a comic you made, City of Reality. I wanted to read it again but it seems to be gone and hours of searching tell me there's no archive of it online anywhere. Please, if you still have the comic saved anywhere it would mean more than the world if I could read it and experience it again.
