PLAYLIST: Such Great Heights

PLAYLIST: Such Great Heights

Photo: Apple’s Revenge This playlist named itself when I added the song “Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service – it just seemed fitting. The music is upbeat and positive; the kind of music you can toke to. I didn’t intend for it to be as eclectic as it is, but I suppose it’s a fair […]

Reefer Madness Redux: If You Smoke It, You Will Become Addicted!

In recent weeks, we have seen a shift in how drug war proponents are talking about marijuana. No longer able to convince the public that people who use marijuana should go to jail, they are singing a new tune; they should all go to treatment. This is a shift we have seen before. When marijuana […]
