Marijuana: Criminalizing the Least Dangerous Substance

William Moyers and “Straight Pot Talk”... Where has he been? (Answer: Under a rock)

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - William Moyers I constantly browse through any kind of reading material to search for articles referring to marijuana. I found a real corker in the Portland Tribune June 24, 2014 titled Talk Straight to Your Kids About Pot.

I was astonished to see that it was written by William Moyers. I am well acquainted with Bill Moyers and wondered if this was the same guy. It turns out, he is the eldest son of “the” Bill Moyers.

Medical Marijuana BLUNDER: New York`s Ridiculous Legislation

This Reefer Madness is a plan to fail, and the arrests will continue.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - New York City marijuana arrests Many years ago I visited Manhattan and read the NYT magazine section. It said that 50% of its citizens should see a psychiatrist. How about them? It must be so.

Police in New York City alone spent a million hours making 440,000 marijuana arrests from 2002-2012. That’s crazy. These numbers do not lie.

These conditions are those for which a patient can get a C/MJ medical-use permit. These are the main conditions, and all (or most of these) conditions are found on Granny Storm Crow’s list.

Marijuana Committees and the Mexican Mafia: Are they Partners?

The marijuana business is bringing billions of dollars to the Mexican marijuana mafia.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - mexican mafia It is astonishing the way efforts toward legalizing marijuana use have gone since about the 1970’s when Vietnam War Veterans brought it back home with them.

Years before that, it was Caribbean islanders and African-American musicians who carefully transmitted marijuana from New Orleans to Memphis, Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City and essentially all along the East Coast.

Wrongful Deaths at the VA: VA Pays $200 Million in Malpractice Claims

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - VA hospitals When the wrongful death malpractice claims at the Phoenix V.A. Hospital hit the news it was all about Phoenix...Phoenix...Phoenix with 40 dead veterans waiting for a diagnosis, not even medical care, which would have prolonged or saved their lives. The report includes information from about 175 VA Hospitals and found that almost all of them had dozens of inadequate care and wrongful deaths. All of this should NOT be happening!

The V.A. has paid out a high amount for their medical malpractice claims but it seems to feel that it is someone else's money. None of the malpractice doctors have paid out a cent which seems to be a gross and bad disincentive!
