Missouri City Bans Edible Plants from Front Yards

Do you think a free citizen should have the right to grow food on their own private property? A city board in Missouri doesn’t think so. In fact one family has been given a mere four days to destroy their beloved food source simply because it is in their front yard. Nathan Athans loves his garden. “I spend all my free time out here,” he says. Besides the therapeutic and health benefits of getting your hands in the soil, and the financial savings of having fresh nutritious food readily available, Nathan also enjoys the peace of mind. “I want my family to know where their food is coming from, I don’t want to have to go to the grocery store and worry about what was done to that food,” he says.

Legalize it All: How to Win the War on Drugs

Legalize it All: How to Win the War on Drugs

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”
