Re: “Hypocrisy Now!

Adopting a vegan lifestyle out of compassion is misguided but kind. Farming for high quality nutrients relies on bone meal, fish emulsion, and other animal products. Harvesting grain kills millions of mice and countless other small mammals caught up by large threshers - ask any farmer. Only one animal died to provide me with steak versus potentially hundreds to feed me bread. Also this:

Re: “The Need for Sanctuary

The primary word is "illegal" immigrants. If I broke the law. I most certainly be arrested. I'm very familiar with the INS. My wife came to the United States in 2003 on a spousal VISA which we had to file six months prior to her arrival . Then we had to go through the process for the residential VISA. within the next week we worked on her citizenship, which she passed the exam and became a citizen. Every year thousands go through the VISA process. just takes time and money.

Re: “It's What, Not How, You Grow

I enjoyed reading your article. As we as a society re-think the war on drugs, and cannabis specifically, both medicinal and recreational, I wish there were more practical solutions being presented to problems that must be addressed. I wonder though... have you given thought to what would constitute BMPs? Who would determine these? It seems to me that the current incentive is really no incentive at all; it is clear, based on the number of current applications submitted compared to total number of estimated grows, that the current system is not working, and I don't see that changing without real change in how cannabis is treated in relation to every other agriculture crop.
