Re: “Is the Gazette's new marijuana series a joke?

Good one, Bryce. You like to be selective. Just as in your journalism. At the time, I was from a drug and alcohol testing company in town and we were explicitly asking if there was any way to find young people who would be willing to talk about their experience for the PURPOSE of opening a conversation about impact to youth and the brain science. If it was awkward for you ... that says a LOT. Just didn't meet your pro-marijuana criteria. That's o.k. At least we had the guts to ask. I'm sure you got a laugh over it later. Good for you!

Re: “Is the Gazette's new marijuana series a joke?

The Independent can talk about how unfair the Gazette perspective piece is ... but I sat in a room in their offices two years ago and asked them to run a piece on the dangers of marijuana to the adolescent brain and they refused. Fair and balanced? I don't think so. You just don't like hearing the other side. What happened to respecting the fact that there are a whole LOT of people who see things differently and have good reason for it. Like parents of addicts and employers. Shame on those who want to shut up differing opinions.
