Re: “Local farmers market doubles food stamps — how do they do it and why is it rare?

You are right ThinkitThrough that Farmers Markets have been targeting those folks with money but I don't think this is out of some kind of bias or snobbery. Local food is pricey because you can't produce food sustainably at a cheap price. Small local farmers have to make a living, so they have to sell their food at higher prices.

This Doubling program will make local food accessible to low-income folks WHILE giving the local farmer a new client segment. Great for the farmer, great for all community members and great for the planet. Thank you Nat for writing this article.

Re: “Racial disparities persist in marijuana arrests

Whenever there occurs a general decrease in some adverse outcome, groups with the lower baseline rate tends to experience larger proportionate decline in rates of experiencing the outcome while other groups tend to experience larger proportionate increases in rates of avoiding the outcome. Correspondingly relative differences in rates of experiencing the declining outcomes tend to increase while relative differences in avoiding the outcomes tend to decrease.

References 1 and 2 explain these matters fairly succinctly. Reference 3 and 4 discuss the patterns that have been observed in Colorado and Denver as both have generally reduced school suspensions. Reference 5 explains the matter to the City of Boulder with regard to criminal justice issues and reference 6 urges the American Statistical Association to explain the matter to the President.

But statement “since 2012, marijuana arrests among white kids decreased by 8 percent, but increased among Hispanic kids by 29 percent and among black kids by 58 percent” (original emphasis) suggests a substantial departure from the usual situation where all groups’ rates change in the same direction. But if the statement actually means that the proportion white kids made up of persons arrested decreased while the proportion Hispanic and black kids made up of persons arrested increased, that would simply be a reflection of the usual pattern. See reference 1 and Table 1 of reference 6. See also the July 1, 2016 preliminary note to reference 7.

Re: “Heroin moves far and fast across the West — including Interstate 25

Mexico is the heart of the heroin trade let us cut the heart out and BUILD THE WALL.
Make no mistake the WHOLE government of Mexico is in on the drug trade and Mexican Cartels are entrenched in every major city in the USA. STOP illegal immigration and stop drug trafficking it is the same highway that lets them both in to OUR country.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

In Dec. of 2014 I was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 39. The doctors could give me no hope. I did have chemo and radiation, the doctors thought that could prolong my life for a little while. In March of 2015 I had surgery, thats when they found that the cancer had spread to my lymp nodes in my right hip area and couldn't get it all with the surgery. Now it looked like 3-6 months is all I would live. It was a very aggressive form of colorectal cancer.

While searching through the internet i saw lots of testimonies about how people called cured of cancer with the help of cannabis oil, so i had to try if i could get cured and still say my own testimony. I saw this email ricksimpsoncancerfoundation@gmail.com and contacted them in hope of getting the oil and it was delivered to me after taking the oil as prescribed i went for more test and found out that most of the cancer cells were dead and i want everyone to know that am perfectly fine and happy with my family.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

DON'T IGNORE THIS, SOME ONE YOU KNOW MIGHT NEED IT PLEASE.
A great testimony I must share to all cancer patients in the world. My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 primary liver cancer in March 2014, doctor told us there was not much to be done since the tumor was 7 inches covering his lower lobe and also had spread to his lymph nodes, We decided to go home and called hospice which gave us morphine for pain, Ed hated the morphine which made him vomit and also affected his mind. After one week at home we decided to do what we have done for many years, rely on ourselves. We were only in Hospital for 3 days with severe Pain, the cancer had blocked his bile duct, after that we choose a Naturalist doctor and have not had conventional treatments.

One day i came across the use of cannabis oil for treatment of cancer and i saw a post on how a cancer patient was cured with cannabis oil. I urgently needed help and i contacted the email :(cannabisoil42@gmail.com) to get the cannabis oil, i was given instructional guide on how to use it. After taking a gram of oil per day, Within a couple of weeks his pain and swollen stomach disappeared and with it came hope and a good quality of life,we did it without
undergoing surgery or and other physical medical pains.

We never saw an oncologist and only have done a blood test after the first diagnose CT scan. His tumor marker went from over
6000 to normal and he is feeling well. We don’t know how this is going to play out, but enjoy every day and give thanks to God. As i am writing this post, my husband is free from liver cancer and the doctor confirmed that the cancer is gone. For immediate assistance on every medical issue you and your family may be experiencing, contact Dr Rick via email: (cannabisoil42@gmail.com) for more information and the delivery process.
This cannabis oil have healed over 5000 people with different types and stages of cancer.

Re: “Local farmers market doubles food stamps — how do they do it and why is it rare?

Farmers markets have long been geared toward white people with money (Whole Foods shoppers, Prius drivers, mate drinkers, yoga mat toters, etc.)

Are you kidding me? Nat, your bias and stereotypes are showing. This isn't a news article, it's an opinion piece. There's a huge difference in case you hadn't noticed. Shame on you.
