Health Effects Of Marijuana

Many historical studies have shown that the federal policies that illegalized marijuana in the 1930’s were designed as a mechanism to deport Mexicans and imprison Blacks from the American Southwest and California. This country’s laws and prejudices concerning marijuana (medical or recreational) are based on hateful jingoism and racism that culminated during the Depression!

I love red wine from Paso Robles and have a few glasses often; it’s available cheap at the local grocery store. And every time I have a glass I’m reminded of the shameful hypocrisy and racism that continue to determine our public policy.

County's Hispanic Population Growing

I'm actually Hispanic and from City Heights, and am completely offended by having a panel of clueless non-Hispanic people bombastically opine about San Diego's (highly diverse) Mexican community (about which they know little).

As a matter of fact, KPBS is completely lacking in meaningful diversity. Indeed, the local population is increasingly young and Mexican-American; but KPBS, despite its lip-service, doesn't reflect the real community make-up.

Thanks for nothing!
