My latest column

Here is a link to my latest column in the UWM Post: For pot smokers, it’s just not fair


If the end of the article seemed to end awkwardly and abruptly, it did. For some reason the copy-editors took out this last line: "One of the worst things anybody can say about marijuana, however, is that it is a gateway drug. This is a strange argument indeed, because really-- what hard drug user ever began their drug career with crack?"

I've been told that on Mondays the copy-edited versions of the paper are on display at the office. I'm going to have to start checking out my pieces to make sure that these under-graduate copy-editors don't mutilate them.
