By Mehmet Oz What are the pros and cons of medical marijuana, as you see it? Any medicine that helps humans, I am supportive of. I'm cautious about medical marijuana because I know that some people will abuse it, but I hate to penalize suffering people just because of a few jerks. For me, it's more about helping people than breaking laws, and it's hard to say no to a man who's dying of cancer. If marijuana makes him feel better, stimulates his appetite, reduces his nausea from chemo, who am I...

  By Golnar Motevalli BARCHA, Afghanistan (Reuters) - Winning ground is one thing. Convincing Afghan villagers you will not leave, abandoning them to a vengeful Taliban, is a bigger challenge for U.S. Marines advancing deep into southern Helmand province.

U.S. businesses at risk of becoming targets of Mexican drug cartels

2009-10-05T18:21:18.889-05:00

This another great reason to legalize drugs just like we did with alcohol. During the first prohibition there blood baths and corruption was a big problem.  Just as it is now.  If we legalize drugs then the Taliban and the drug cartels would be out of business…not the US. By ALEJANDRA LABANCA American interests could become targets of Mexico's drug cartels as Washington deepens its involvement in the war against drugs south of the border, according to a leading global intelligence...

5 Crazy Right-Wing Freak-Outs in Just One Glorious Week

2009-10-05T18:19:57.132-05:00

By Brad Reed, AlterNet. Posted October 5, 2009. For reasons that I don’t understand -- perhaps it’s subconscious karmic payback for murdering children in a past life -- I feel compelled to read a lot of right-wing blogs. The wonderful thing about them is the window they offer into the pulsing id of the conservative movement -- up close and personal and without the filters of focus groups or dog whistles. For instance, do you think that Glenn Beck is insane? Oh puh-lease. Beck has...

2009-10-05T13:10:12.561-05:00

By John Hilliard/Daily News staff In the first year since voters decided to decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot, school officials said districts aren't seeing escalating drug problems, though they worry the law may encourage marijuana use among students.

Each is facing expulsion proceedings. Because of...

John Boehner: We're calling him out

2009-10-05T06:53:13.578-05:00

Instead of building honest consensus around reform, Rep. John Boehner is choosing to be a leading peddler of health reform lies. He's claimed that reform would result in a government takeover of health care, cuts in Medicare benefits, and federal funding of abortion -- even though his lies have been debunked by non-partisan fact checks, and his own party has voted to gut Medicare. Enough. We're calling him out.
