An open line and a plea for medical marijuana

Posted By on Sun, Sep 18, 2016 at 5:10 PM

Here's the Sunday night open line. And, if your mind is open about medical marijuana, I found some good reading today.

It comes in an op-ed from the El Dorado newspaper.  The paper's former managing editor, Shea Wilson, has written about how an El Dorado woman with debilitating illnesses found relief from cannabis oil in another state where the conventional pharmaceuticals in Arkansas failed her. Wait for research that will never come as long as politicians, mostly Republican, stand in the way? I'd prefer medical marijuana in Arkansas. I asked for permission to share.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
