Yes. If it can help people have less pain, what’s there even to question? The fear that teenagers will have easier access to the drug is simply an excuse for not legalizing it. Pharmaceutical companies don’t want legalization because they want to push their own medications that are far riskier than this herbal drug.

I can see the potential harm in legalizing it. But if it’s the only option to help patients, then we should consider it. God created this plant for us to use. Cigarettes are legal, as is alcohol, and we see the damage done by those substances. Why not legalize medicinal marijuana to help people cope with their illnesses?
Yes. I am a recent kidney recipient and I understand the importance of immediate healthcare. Many people are suffering from glaucoma and joint disease and if marijuana can ease their pain then we must give it to them. I’m unconcerned about teenagers getting hold of it since I think the fact that it’s illegal is what draws many people to try it in the first place.
Yes. My girlfriend had cancer and she was often nauseous after chemotherapy treatments. Marijuana was the only relief she had; it was the only thing that stabilized her. As for the concern that people will abuse the substance – well, those who want to get hold of it will do so either way.

In Uzbekistan, in the early twentieth century, it was the women who wore the pants.
While multitasking is not ideal, it is often necessary and unavoidable.
Maybe now that your kids are back in school, you should start cleaning for Pesach.
The interpreter was expected to be a talmid chacham himself and be able to also offer explanations and clarifications to the students.
“When Frank does something he does it well and you don’t have to worry about dotting the i’s or crossing the t’s.”
“On Sunday I was at the Kotel with the battalion and we said a prayer of thanks. In Gaza there were so many moments of death that I had to thank God that I’m alive. Only then did I realize how frightening it had been there.”
Neglect, indifference or criticism can break a person’s neshama.
It’s fair to say that we all know or have someone in our family who is divorced.
The assumption of a shared kinship is based on being part of the human race. Life is so much easier to figure out when everyone thinks the same way.
Various other learning opportunities will be offered to the community throughout the year.
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a chavrusa working with you, guiding and helping you in your work environment?
The Jewish Press recently sat down with Chaya Lipschutz, a Brooklyn woman who saved the life of a stranger.
In the past, people used to turn to coffee or orange juice to get through a midday slump, but today, many are turning to power and energy drinks for a quicker and longer-lasting jolt. The power drink industry is booming with projected sales of $9 billion and no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
Every week nearly three million viewers tune into the Bravo cable channel to watch the hit reality franchise “The Real Housewives” – several shows that follow the lives of affluent housewives and professional women residing in several American metropolitan areas (“The Real Housewives of New York,” “The Real Housewives of Los Angeles,” of Miami, of Atlanta, etc.).
Not too many Jewish World War II survivors from Germany can say that they had the distinction of being both interned in a concentration camp and liberating the captives in that same camp. Erwin Weinberg did just that.
Recently I had the opportunity to spend some times with Bernard (Bernie) Walz and get a glimpse of his war experiences.
As I approached the home of Irving and Miriam Borenstein in the Mill Basin section of Brooklyn, two things became clear: the pride they feel at being Jewish and their joy at living in America. On their front lawn are large American and Israeli flags with a plaque in front which reads:
Never forget the six million murdered in the Holocaust and the three thousand murdered on 9/11.
May G-d remember them for the good with the other righteous of the world.
