We Are On The Right Side Of Wrong

What will the rest of this year bring? Already a month into two states legalizing marijuana and the collapse of society did not happen, or at least nothing more than the usual. At least in those two states, consumers of cannabis are able to self-medicate with a little more pride and faith. This will be a year of legalization limbo for Washington, as lawmakers ask for a halt on progress to the State Liquor Control Board, but the medical scene flourishes more than ever due to new attitudes of the [...]

The Haag, By Dr. Geuss

This offensive has closed hundreds of state-legal, locally compliant dispensaries in Northern California and has threatened others like Harborside Health Center. [...]

StoptheDrugWar.Org Is Looking For Interns

By David Borden, StopTheDrugWar.Org StoptheDrugWar.org works for an end to drug prohibition worldwide and an end to the “drug war” in its current form. We believe that much of the harm commonly attributed to “drugs” is really the result of placing drugs in a criminal environment. We believe the global drug war has fueled violence, civil instability, and public health crises; and that the currently prevalent arrest- and punishment-based policies toward drugs are unjust. Please visit our web site, and please read more about us. We are seeking Legislative, Writing/Research, Web Content, Information Technology, and Admin/Finance interns (potentially [...]
