Hillary, Please Kiss George Goodbye!

If anyone has earned the presidency in 2016, it’s Hillary Clinton. She’s the most admired person in the country, and tough enough to be president, too.

ADHD is a New American Normal

“I can’t imagine Jeff as ADHD,” said an educator who knows my middle-aged brother, after I had been describing how he couldn’t sit still in grade school.  The educator was surprised, because he only knows my brother as a successful lawyer.  My parents didn’t allow much TV, and my brother made some dramatic changes, but only after learning to discipline...

Medical Marijuana Gets Caught it Own Snare

As medical marijuana has used a magic wand to stir the legislatures of 18 states and the District of Columbia to pass laws in its favor, the magic wand of medical marijuana is getting caught in its own snare.   Wringing at the hearts of all of us, marijuana lobbyists “push” the fast-growing “weeds” of “profit,” based upon the extraordinary “compassion” of their...

Role of Marijuana in Youth Violence

 The role of marijuana needs to be added to policy discussion of youth violence and mass murders.  Ten days ago three participants were shot at the 420 celebration rally in Denver.  It’s probably more than just a coincidence that Arizona shooter Jared Loughner and Aurora Colorado shooter James Holmes were long-time stoners.  Now we can add Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to the list of criminals who...
