Re: “LSU announces operators for medical marijuana program

God how I love and hate our state lol. They really screwed this one up. Two years later, and there are still people suffering and dying in our state because our elected officials are too scared, incompetent, corrupt (pick one or all) to actually create a workable plan that would actually benefit the citizens of this state. Marijuana is perhaps the safest drug in widespread use in the world today. No drug is absolutely safe or without potential side effects, but there has never been a confirmed overdose death from cannabis (something that you can't even say for aspirin or caffeine). And our elected leaders still want to lock us up for using it? People wake up!

Re: “Do You Know What It Means to Myth New Orleans?

No...just no. I lived through Katrina and its aftermath. If anything, the stories of violence and mayhem were under-reported--not over-reported. I saw a home broken into on Coliseum Square, with feces smeared on all the family pictures, blood splashed on the door handles and walls, and a cleanly severed middle finger randomingly lying in an ashtray, almost an afterthought....like a cigarette butt. I drank with a distraught National Guardsman who half cried and half blubbered his story to me of summary executions and piles of Black bodies being disposed of in the river. I smelled the rotting flesh that perfumed our city for months as bodies slowly decomposed beneath the rubble. Trust me folks. It was hell. I know what I saw, heard, and experienced and I didn't even see the worst of it. Louis Byron, Attorney at Law/Licensed Clinical Social Worker (retired).
