How A 12-Year-Old Girl Could Help End Pot Prohibition
Is it true that a 12-year-old girl could help end pot prohibition? According to the latest reports, the answer is yes. The girl in question is Alexis Bortell, and up until recently, she had been suffering daily seizures. But now, because of her life-saving medication, she finds herself trapped in Colorado.
Twelve-year-old Alexis Bortell is an eloquent and precocious sixth grader living in Colorado. In addition to her school work and social life, she enjoys all of the activities that are typical of preteen girls: authoring a book, going on speaking tours and challenging the federal government.
Born in Texas, Bortell has a debilitating form of epilepsy that caused her to suffer daily seizures.
The medicine that her doctors had prescribed came with awful side effects that, according to Bortell, were worse than the actual disease. The maximum time that Bortell could be seizure-free was a grand total of three days. Her education suffered because of frequently missed classes. She and her parents were getting desperate. Her doctors were at a loss. They even suggested an “experimental lobotomy” to achieve just the chance of some relief.

Northern California Employers Are Re-Examining Drug Testing Policies
In light of legalization and the growing prevalence of cannabis consumption, Northern California employers are re-examining drug testing policies. Are they swayed by science? By logic? Or are they just losing out on prospective employees because of unreliable testing methods? It seems that there are a lot of factors at play here.
If you’ve had or applied for a job in the United States, you have probably been subjected to at least one mandatory drug screening. Job offers that are contingent upon clean urine are ubiquitous. It seems that everyone and their mother has strategies for passing drug tests! Or at least beating the system one way or another.
But in recent years, more and more people are questioning the validity and necessity of mandatory drug testing. Especially when it comes to employment. Although prospective employees have (rightfully) complained about this compulsory testing for years, employers are officially on the bandwagon.
