5 disagrees on humor based on using words to suggest the opposite of their literal meaning. "Humor brings insight and tolerance. Irony brings a cheaper and less friendly understanding." Oh, the irony of it all....

Kamal shouldn't be allowed to sell dangerous stuff like drug paraphernalia. He should sell something safe and sensible, like guns and ammo. Of course, his bullets would be clearly labeled,"not for human consumption".

Kamals a good guy. I live here in Marshall but I am originally from the New Ulm area. I am a frequent visitor to his shop for cigars and chewing tobacco. He is working with the law to make sure that he follows them. Yeah, New Ulm has had past problems and so has Kamal, but as long as the Law doesn't overstep its boundaries and Kamal stays within the law, $6000 a DAY in revenue to Kamal and when the City of New Ulm gets their cut in taxes they will benefit as well. Thats all I have to say about that.

We let people purchase malls when they haven't paid taxes on ballrooms. Of course we'll let this guy sell bath salts.

The packages are clearly labeled "not for human consumption", so what are they for, your dog?

Why would the city grant a license to a person with a criminal conviction ?

Many people need to pass criminal background checks in order to get a job. Why wouldn't passing a similar test be required for granting a license ? Especially when items such as tobacco or if alcohol were involved.

Apparently sales tax revenue is more importnant to our city council than public safety.

It may be possible to gross $6000 a day on average, but I believe taxes, insurance, labor,licenses, inventory management and other business costs make for a high overhead.

Seriously, why allow any drug paraphernalia? Sell cigarettes, e cigarettes, cigars, etc. Nothing good comes from selling glassware.

We be watching you Kamal. You never know "who" will be the undercover agent.....New Ulm has enough issues with drugs. I hope you are true to your word. Another question, do other small specialty stores in New Ulm make $6000/day? Are prices really that much lower? Maybe I will take up smoking again....
