Smoking Pot should only be for 25 and older (Forum)

I've been saying this for awhile now, interesting to see an actual study done on it - Pot smoking shouldn't be for anyone under the age of 25. I know we are used to things being for 18 and 21 - but the brain doesn't fully develop until the age of 25 when it goes from pre-cog to cognitive thinking. Marijuana alters the mind, it opens a door that would otherwise never be opened if one did not use the plant, but this shouldn't happen until at or after the age of 25.

Grocery Manufacturer’s Association Overtakes Monsanto as “Most Evil Corporation on the Planet” (Forum)

By Dr Joseph Mercola Monsanto, as most of you may already know, has long been referred to by those in the know as "the most evil company on the planet." But it has stiff competition. Before there was Monsanto, junk food companies were already hard at work influencing American politics to further their own agenda. The processed food industry has a lot to answer for when it comes to the general health of Americans, who spend upwards of 90 percent of all their food dollars on processed convenience foods.

How Your Taxes are Being Used by the Government to Produce Junk Food (Forum)

Mike Barrett | Activist Post | Tuesday, January 3, 2012 With rates of obesity, diabetes, and nearly every other major health problem rising each year, why has the United States decided to heavily subsidize junk food? Farmers around the country choosing to grow healthy crops like chard, broccoli, and spinach simply do not have the government funding that those growing massive amounts of corn and soy beans (of which above 90% of each are genetically modified) do. Does the U.S. government really think that fruits and vegetables are not as important as grains which are used mostly for processing harmful food items? It may be time for a policy change.
