Under the new proposed law, if a patient were to consume their medication beyond a private residence they will be guilty of a criminal misdemeanor and could face up to 60 days imprisonment.
This year, taxes will be due on April 18th, 2016, and not the usual April 15th. This is because the IRS recognizes any holiday observed in the Dist...
Homeward DC is clear and well laid out. It is a reflection of the strong desire among city leaders to finally rope in homelessness. The steps are concrete and achievable, down to the way new construction and services will be funded.
Homelessness isn't just a math problem to solve at the lowest possible price. The people who experience homelessness are assets to the city and must be treated like it.
In 2015, state legislators considered bills to legalize marijuana in 21 states, decriminalize marijuana possession in 17 states, and legalize medical marijuana in 19 states. The table was set in other ways that will lead to a healthy serving of marijuana policy reform in 2016.
The District of Columbia is a wonderful place to live -- if you can afford it. The high cost of housing makes ending homelessness in our city more of a challenge. No District resident who works, or who has spent a life working, should be in poverty and homeless.
At its 20th session in Brussels, Belgium, UNPO formally voted to accept the Nation's Capital as a new member. The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent and democratic membership organization.

Wouldn't it be great to celebrate black people, just for being black? Nothing is more positive than flipping the script. Where there is oppression, we will uplift. And where there is hate, we'll inject love.
This decision is a resounding victory for homeless families based not just on esoteric interpretations of law, but on a common understanding of basic human rights that must be protected for all DC residents, no matter their income.
A MOST -- called a MOLST or POLST in other places -- guides conversations between a patient and the patient's medical team about specific treatment options and interventions in light of the expected course of the condition.
Taking down the confederate flag is a constructive and symbolic financial decision for most corporations. Actually ceding power and income to workers, to pay taxes for education for all, to negotiate with workers as equal partners, those acts will be much harder to achieve.
As a former D.C. resident who is now living fully represented in California, I am surprised by the indifference that exists to the plight of Washington's 658,893 residents who are heavily taxes yet have no voting representation in Congress.
