Baker University president explains staff cuts

Young reader questions negative stigma about marijuana

Marijuana has a bad stigma and I'm not sure why, other than the fact that it is illegal. However, alcohol used to be illegal. We need to question the law more and seek out answers. Why is marijuana illegal? I think marijuana causes far less harm than alcohol or harder drugs. I am not buying the whole "gateway drug" theory.

Businesses urge city to get tough on downtown panhandlers

I understand the need to toughen laws on panhandling. But shouldn't we work to improve the overall problem of homelessness in Lawrence? It seems by attacking the root of the problem, it will eliminate itself. By attacking the symptom, the problem still exists. It is like covering an odor with room spray : it's still there, just masked behind imitation flowers!!
