President Trump has stated on his Twitter pertaining to the devastating  wildfires that there’s “no reason for these massive deadly…

Michelangelo Features 

Michelangelo

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was one of the most revolutionary artists of the Renaissance period which spanned across the 12th century to the 15th century.

The Poor and The Criminal

If it is possible to briefly suspend the question, “should grass be legalized or decriminalized?”, I would like to know something about the human factor of it all. Namely, “what are the devices that allow us to continue this ‘war on drugs’?”. It is only fair, in light of the legalisation of marijuana, to say a few words.
