Someone running an illicit grow op using natural gas as a C02 source? Those go kaboom almost as often as the butane hash oil extraction amateurs. Let the licensed folks deal with that shiat already.

I know it is funny to blame the pot dispensary, but the other close neighbor is a scrap yard. And of course we all know that scrap yards "never" pour anything illegal down the drain...

Seconded. Dry ice extraction is so much better.

Yeah, since they said it wasn't natural gas I'm thinking a sewer line explosion in some form.

Maybe it will reveal the Chinese TBM that's been making that odd humming noise near the Detroit River that nobody can pinpoint, but seems to emanate from a fortified private island on the Canadian side.

Looks like it might have been an H2S build up in the sanitary severs that got ignited. The road paving bulging up would point to that as well as the smell people mentioned - it would smell like rotten eggs...

Probably just CHUDs. They're always bad this time of year

I plan to, since I live in Missouri and can't get it, can't afford it and feel like dying without it.

Postmortem is the only way these Rethuglicans plan to let anyone enjoy life.

I just watched Return of the Living Dead last weekend. A true classic.

Around here mysterious explosions are usually homemade BHO labs.

Smells better than the Rendering Plant. Salt mine underneath, old water mains with wooden valves from the 19th century...probably hippy mole men.

I thought it came from Zug Island and since they closed that facility a year or two ago, that issue is done with.

Farking Canadians.

nytmare: Something caused the ground to swell and the gas line to break, but it wasn't an explosion.


So the appropriate headline is "Pot dispensary destroyed by bad joint"

imo, nothing smells worse than Melvindale.  Holy shiat I don't know how people can exist in that area.

Another tragedy brought forth by legalized marijuana.  We need to go back to the old ways of throwing people in jail for possessing it.  That worked so much better.

Marathon's refinery.  Now I know why the Meadowlands smell so bad.

People can become nose-blind to some pretty foul odours. It's a real issue for some of our pipeline crews that can no longer reliably smell the mercaptan odourant in gas lines.

Now did the dispensary have any type of business insurance?  It doesn't look like they are going to be able to salvage much if anything out of that building.
Did they have cash in a safe? In the building?

The moment I start to smell the Melvindale area, I try very hard to hold my breath until I'm on the 75 Overpass that leads up and over the smog cloud.  That whole area is just vomit inducing.

I am overly sensitive to mercaptan.  I used to smell it at work where there was a furnace exhaust near the front door.  I was told that was impossible, since it doesn't survive combustion, but it was there every morning.  I sometimes smell it near the gas meter at home and near the gas grill, but the valves are always tightly closed.
