Setting aside the ability of the cannabis industry to have some degree of impact on the current presidential race, what are the positions of some of the more interesting candidates?
Barack Obama poked good humor at some of those extreme conservative perceptions of his presidency at the White House Correspondents Dinner last month.
Donald Trump has no one to blame but himself for the ongoing controversy. If he had shown a basic level of respect for Latinos, he would not be facing growing outrage in the Hispanic community. Maybe the title of his next book should be "How To Lose Friends and Deport People."
Jeb! is secular sometimes, and faithful and devout at other times. It all depends on where he is and who he is talking to. 50 states allows for 50 shades of Jeb!'s religious conviction.
Since NAFTA there is an unwritten rule enforced by the pro-corporate power wing of the Democratic Party that in order to be the Democratic nominee for president, you have to be a corporate Democrat on trade policy.
Eighteen months away from the 2016 election, our national workforce and higher education policy arena already includes the campaign trail nearly as much as it does our nation's capital.

This trend of tough residency standards aimed at limiting student voting rights cannot stand. Instead, we should encourage more participation in our democracy from younger people.
I recently discovered that west isn't necessarily best when it comes to skiing. New Hampshire receives an annual average of 80 inches of fresh snow every year and offers a number of off-the-slopes activities that include snow shoeing, dog sledding, snow tubing, zip-lining and much more.
You see, little by little, I eventually caught on and soon learned that "farty" was none other than "forty."
Lisa Gardner pulls out all the stops in her latest novel, Crash & Burn. There are so many muddled characters who try to make sense of all that is going on, while there are other seemingly crazed characters who are determined to hide the truth. In short you can't breeze your way through this one.
