We get asked a lot about marijuana, especially as more states deal with its legalization. We're hoping to give you less smoke, and more substance.
In the 1930s a film called "Reefer Madness" warned viewers about the dangers of marijuana. The film enjoyed an ironic renaissance in the 70s as an unintentional satire of the drug fears of uptight adults — at least so said advocates of looser drug laws.

Pink ribbons everywhere — we saw it only weeks ago when Breast Cancer Awareness Month concluded. It's an eye-catching symbol, particularly for cancer survivors.
A recent research study should also make us take notice, stating that: "Between 1970 and 2014, the probability of U.S. women contracting breast cancer has more than quadrupled."
Yet in the fight to stop cancer, certain knowledge has been missing. Cancer research organizations have made a capable effort to educate women regarding breast cancer risk factors — except for one. more >>
Prominent Evangelical and Catholic groups jointly warned that a proposed Department of Health and Human Services rule regarding abortion, gender identity and gay marriage could erode religious liberty.
The National Association of Evangelicals, Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Family Research Council, World Vision and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and other religious groups jointly submitted comments last week expressing concern that religious groups could be required to engage in actions contrary to their beliefs about abortion, gender identity or gay marriage.

Last week Hope Pregnancy Centers celebrated the one year anniversary of its closing on the Bryan-College Station complex. more >>
At a campaign town hall event at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire, Sen. Marco Rubio used a question on abortion from a reporter to focus on Hillary Clinton, claiming she is the one with "radical" positions.
Perhaps trying to show Rubio is out of step with voters on abortion, he was asked whether a fertilized egg should have legal protections, the candidate used the question as an opportunity to defend life and vigorously attacked the Democrat frontrunner.
"I don't know what you're talking — I believe all life is worthy of the protection of our laws. That's what I believe," declared Rubio. more >>
The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments from a group of nuns who want to be exempted from having to indirectly provide birth control and abortion-inducing drugs to employees.
Little Sisters of the Poor will present their case as one of seven cases pertaining to the Department of Health and Human Services' birth control mandate.
In their granting of certiorari on Friday, court opted to consolidate the cases, which include legal challenges by Priests for Life, Geneva College, East Texas Baptist University, and the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Washington. more >>
