Re: “'America returns to the jungle'

All the bad things you read about the food industry are mostly true, but if things are going to improve, people actually have to DO something. Whining isn't very effective. There are a lot of farmers and ranchers that sell directly to the public. As I tell my customers, and others, the only way to know what you are getting in your food is to know how and where it is produced. Labeling and certifications don't really cut it. People always want an easy way and big food provides it. They produce cheap food and a lot of it. People like me produce a little and it cost a lot more than at the grocery store. You can't force big food to do the right thing because they own the politicians and regulators . You CAN go outside the system. You also need to gain a little knowledge about producing food because just because it's produced locally doesn't mean it's good.

Re: “Cannabis club finally triumphs over city of Colorado Springs

Perfectly handled by KC Stark. Agencies to city councils have frequently over stepped their legal authority. The fact is the U.S. government got Hemp, Cannabis, Cannabinoids and THC totally wrong. Today key departments and politicians realize this. Research reveals that national decriminalization along with growing "industrial hemp" is up for change once other agencies are on-board. With Canada's recent liberal move to fully legalize Marijuana it would seem U.S. citizens interest would be best served by full legalization without limitations or excess taxation. Several industries know this plant will be disruptive so it's safe to assume anything less than full legalization without restrictions is probably another masked attempt to marginalize and wrongfully restrict this plant. Cannabis represents one of the greatest advancements of our lifetimes for health, environment, building, lumber, clothing and other key industries. It's time to vote YES on full legalization.
