District Attorney Robert Kochly admits he could merely produce three
Prop. 215 infraction case studies in two years; and at least one
didn't even involve minors.

The Contra Costa Board of Supervisors' meeting was a sham. Supervisors
already decided, yet aren't knowledgeable on the issue.

What decent pot club in Alameda County smells that bad, has heaps of
garbage, or is dangerous? And you can't always tell who's disabled. If
people are going to make judgments on places and people in the Bay
Area, they have to research. Not just make comical

The neo-cons' problem with pot is psychosomatic. Notice how the
counsel is so fascinated with the smell of the issue. All Pinko things
smell foul, huh?

For 40 years, marijuana has been mistaken as a quasi-religious
sacrament for a fictional plot to overthrow American values.

The attack on weed is a lame attempt to lash out at a mythical liberal
threat. Also, neo-cons associate pot with supposedly scary Middle
Eastern cultures and the war.

We pride ourselves on our quality of education yet the supervisors and
DA substitute health policies with badly-researched paranoid witch

Demand science before fear.
