Marijuana Tourism: Its Major Challenge and Promising Future

October 8, 2015 - 10:30am

People who haven’t used marijuana in years or sometimes never before are now putting their inhibitions aside to try cannabis. Because of the overwhelming array of edibles, tinctures, topicals, and even transdermal patches available. people don’t even have to smoke to partake in the festivities. However, with marijuana moving into more industrialized facilities for massive-scale production, it is important that consumers seek out organically grown, pesticide-free marijuana that is cultivated with the end user in mind.

Jewish and African-American Communities Should Join to Oust Debbie Wasserman Schultz

September 11, 2015 - 4:15pm

It’s time. In fact, it's past time.

Debbie needs to go.  President Obama should have replaced her already as DNC chair, but since he hasn’t, it's up to the Jewish community and the African-American community to get the job done.

She is no longer fit to hold that congressional seat, and between the two communities, we can take it away from her. A message should be sent to DWS, and really, others, who think they have taken up permanent residence in Washington, D.C.

That message is: We put you in, and we can take you out.
