It should be possible to say that we should continue with the movement toward the decriminalization of marijuana. And we should also be able to say that as we decriminalize, we should take every step possible to minimize the harm, since there is scientific evidence of the dangers of pot on adolescents and young adults.

Most people think of me as the "godfather of hip-hop," and believe me, I'm proud of that title, but I know that one of my most important contribution in business has been providing a financial service for millions of Americans.
I understood Clevelanders who declared LeBron forever dead to them. Still, I have my own journey as a prodigal son who once had to leave Cleveland in order to grow up, only to later return so I could discover my real story.
I am risking arrest because we in the faith community will not remain silent while millions of immigrants continue to live lives marked with fear and unrealized potential.
"To witness hunger in America today," journalist Tracie McMillan writes in the August issue of National Geographic Magazine, "is to enter a twilight zone where refrigerators are so frequently bare of all but mustard and ketchup that it provokes no remark, inspires no embarrassment."
The landscape of higher education today seems pretty homogenous. This strikes me as not merely a complaint of the geezer in me but a loss of something distinctive about American higher education.
The degree to which we get students from all backgrounds ready for high-skilled jobs will determine their economic and social mobility. Here, though, is my big worry: We really haven't made up our collective mind that students from disadvantaged and minority families can be -- and should be -- educated to the highest levels.
Last year, executions in the U.S. dipped to a 20-year low. Jones v Chappell only further erodes confidence in the criminal justice system, as America travels down the path to death penalty abolition.
From voter suppression laws being passed in the light of day in state houses around the country and the political assault on women's reproductive rights to the racial wealth gap, there are disturbing signs that our nation's baby steps towards political, social and economic inclusion could be stalling.

R&B heart-throb Usher (last name Raymond) has not only professionally parted ways with his momager Jonetta Patton -- he also severed ties with his longtime publicist Simone Smalls.
She issued the following statement:
"Change is good! I developed and executed an amazing public relations campaign that aided in Usher's transition from teen R&B singer to pop superstar. He became one the biggest modern day global superstars and talent brands under my guidance.

Her client roster includes Teresa Earnhardt and Max Siegel, CEO and President of No.1 NASCAR franchise Dale Earnhardt Inc., hitmaking singer/songwriter Ne-Yo, rapper Lil' Jon, pop artist Sean Paul and R&B diva Keyshia Cole, film director Franc. Reyes and lifestyle and apparel brands.
