Massive Climate Protests in New York: World Leaders Need to “Go Green”

September 19th, 2014 saw the largest climate-related protest ever occur in New York City. Organized largely by 350.org, an environmental action non-profit, The People’s Climate March was touted by organizers as “the world’s largest climate protest.” The event drew an estimated 400,000 people to New York, though that estimate is rough, at best.

NORML Launches Business Network

This is Los Angeles, California. Downtown LA is not like most major cities, there is no real city center where jobs are concentrated. Its nine million residents drive across its crumbling, trafficked freeways from where they can afford to live to where they work every single day; the average commute time for people who live […]

Dear San Francisco…

Dear San Francisco…

Dear San Francisco, I love you. I do, honestly. You’re filled with the bizarre and the fantastical. You have the magic so many other cities wish they could have. I also hate you.
