Cannabis Hysteria

Fear-mongering for money and power is the true motive behind cannabis hysteria over the last century. Under the moron now running the U.S. Department of Justice (Attorney General Jeff Sessions), protecting the interests of ubercapitalists such as Hearst and Dupont, the American Medical Association, and opioid pushers like Purdue Pharma, Johnson & Johnson, supersedes the interests of public health and safety.

Dis-Honoring Columbus

Honoring Columbus is akin to celebrating Hitler. Both committed genocide.

When Columbus day was established in 1937, racial segregation was the law in the Deep South and in Washington, D.C. Since then, white power has suffered many ignoble defeats.

Completing the American rejection of state-sponsored violence against American Indians begins by recognizing that Italian American identity does not need Columbus. With people like Michelangelo, Garibaldi and Galileo to be proud of, why stick with a racist murderer?

In 1992, Berkeley was the first city to change Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day.

On Tuesday, San Francisco could join them.
