Marijuana vs Jimson Weed: Will the real LOCOWEED please stand up?

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - locoweed (jimson weed) I was introduced to marijuana in 1928 when I discovered that the Mexican kids in my hometown, Klamath Falls, Oregon, were smoking it, which I believed to be “locoweed”!

An extreme and odd decision by an entire coffee chain.

(MARINA, Calif.) - Kevin Saunders Medical pot advocate/ex-law student/erstwhile Marina mayoral candidate Kevin Saunders is no stranger to controversy—or restraining orders, for that matter. But this is one he probably didn't see coming.

Saunders says he was served (no pun intended) by Starbucks at the July 1 Marina City Council Meeting with a notice that he's been permanently banned from every Starbucks location in the world.

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.
