I play third wheel a lot with two friends. They sell weed and I love smoking weed, so it works out pretty good. I get high, they get to hang with someone as cool as me. Anyways, he is a long-time friend and she has been with him for about two years…and she is bad news. She is unemployed, and sleeps, eats, or watches TV pretty much all day. She is also incredibly bossy to everyone, but especially my friend. She is an all-around bad person and a horrible influence on my friend–they do a ton of cocaine and even smoke crack! I want my friend to do better. I am super nice to her though and hang out with her all the time for free weed. He has never had a girlfriend before her, and I feel like she robbed him of relationships he would actually enjoy and benefit from. He doesn’t seem happy…but I can’t say anything, can I? More
First things first: Mayor Marty Walsh would rather fight one horse-sized duck than 100 duck-sized horses.
Now that that’s out of the way, we can delve a little deeper into what the new mayor had to say during an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session he hosted Thursday on Reddit, specifically his response to a question regarding his concerns over medical marijuana dispensaries sprouting up in the Hub. More

Probably not, but it sure seems like it. Massachusetts’ medical marijuana dispensary program was approved by voters in 2012 and allowed for 35 dispensaries statewide to be regulated by the Department of Public Health. Late last month, the department released its list of the first 20 dispensaries awarded “provisional status,” including locations in Newton, Brookline, Cambridge, and two in Boston. Now, the DPH has released all 100 dispensary applications, along with what seem to be “scorecards” for each proposed location. There’s something a bit fishy about these scores though, according to MuckRock, a public records investigation site that specializes in obtaining government documents and data. More
It’s been a while since politicians talked seriously about the priorities of young people. It’s unfair: campaigns rely on us to sign petitions, like pages on Facebook, and knock on doors in New Hampshire, but none of that translates into us being considered a viable political constituency. The reason is we don’t vote. And because we don’t vote, we don’t get to sit at the big boy’s table.
But what happens if an issue comes along that has the possibility of capturing young people’s attention, and in the process, turns us into a powerful voting bloc? Friday, the state awarded the first 20 licenses to open medical marijuana dispensaries, the next big step in Massachusetts’ flirtation with full-on legalization. And now, the pro-weed lobbying groups are preparing for their push to get a ballot question on the issue by 2016. The next two years will be interesting, as America’s quintessential nanny-state will have to look itself in the mirror and decide if it will abide legal, recreational marijuana use. Whether or not that happens will depend largely on the youth vote. More
