Medical Marijuana in New Mexico

If a bill moving through the current 30-day Legislative Session passes, the state's sick and dying may be legally smoking up by this summer

"I've got AIDS. I'm nauseous 24/7; my life is degrees of nausea. I'm fighting wasting,” said Essie Debonet, a 61-year-old, 95-pound patient activist, adding that marijuana is one of the only things that helps to quell her chronic nausea due to AIDS medications. “It almost pushes me to eat.”

Thin Line

Dying Wind

Years ago, on the first day of April, my predecessor, Michael Henningsen, sent around an e-mail informing us that the Alibi had just purchased Crosswinds. Being the most gullible person east of the International Date Line, I swallowed the whole story without even chewing. Like a complete idiot, I ran around the office quizzing people about the purchase. I distinctly recall Chris Johnson, one of the Alibi's owners, laughing in my face.

Guest Editorial

Odds & Ends

Dateline: Thailand—Thailand's creepiest couple is planning to tie the knot on Valentine's Day. The Scorpion Queen and the Centipede King plan to get married on Feb. 14 at the Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum's Haunted House Adventure in the southern resort town of Pattaya. Kanchana Ketkaew, 36, set a world record in 2002 for spending 32 days in a glass cage with 3,400 scorpions. Bunthawee Siengwong, 29, set a Thai record for enduring 28 days with 1,000 centipedes. The two met while performing their respective stunts at a snake farm on the resort island of Koh Samui. According to Somporn Naksuetrong, general manager of Thailand's Ripley's Museum, the couple will wear bloodstained wedding clothes and will partake in a traditional Thai ceremony. But, instead of heading to a traditional “wedding room” after the ceremony, the pair plans to climb into a coffin to consummate their union.

Letters

Confirming Alito, or anyone like him, will be the coup de grâce of the coup d'état and will facilitate, legitimize and institutionalize the criminal and monstrous agenda of the Bush cartel and their masters. This is not a conservative or Republican agenda, but a globalist and corporatist one. This is far larger than partisan politics, which are only a tool of oppression. The entire Democrat vs. Republican game is a ploy, a simple device called Divide and Rule; and in order to advance the agenda, “leaders” of both parties are required to play their roles.
