Chicago just named a street for an environmental justice hero.

After her husband died from lung cancer in 1969, Hazel M. Johnson started a fight against all the things making her neighbors and loved ones sick.

Recreational marijuana may be a […]

Wichita, Kansas, Votes On Marijuana Decriminalization Next Month

I have long been a fan of local marijuana reform efforts. They are obviously not as good as a statewide reform victory, but a lot of local victories can add up. I always say that if you can’t win at the state level, focus your energy towards local efforts. Local victories show the rest of […]
