While Soares answered the question sufficiently, she’s since reflected on the discontent she felt with her response.

However, as any educator or parent knows, the way we speak to children has tremendous power in the ways the view the world around us.

Historic MORE Act Reaches U.S. Congressional Victory

Earlier this month, members of United States Congress made history with their vote on cannabis-related legislature. By a majority of twenty-four to ten, the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment, and Expungement Act was approved by the United States House Judiciary Committee.

It’s baffling that the use and possession of cannabis, which permitted (to some degree) by laws in two-thirds of our nation’s states, are simultaneously considered felonious at the federal level. This creates a number of difficulties that affect industry workers and imbibers alike.
