Not so strong

Just a quick correction to your piece about legal marijuana. You stated that today’s pot is much stronger than before, and you quoted THC in the 90 percent range. This is not true, most marijuana is in the low teens to mid 20 percent range not 90 percent.

A step in the right direction

On March 8, the New Hampshire House Commerce Committee votes on HB 560, a bill that goes a long way in addressing the wasteful proliferation of plastic bags in our state. New Hampshire is the only east coast state from Maine to Washington, D.C., that has not enacted a ban. Plastic shopping ...

Open letter to Erick Erickson

In 2016 you said you could not support Donald Trump because “I found him to be an amoral man and an unprincipled politician.” Now in 2019 you say you are “ready to vote for him in 2020. So what happened?” It appears to me that you are willing to trade principle for a better paycheck. ...

Job well done

Kudos to Rep. Jeanine Notter for her stand supporting the right of folks to carry firearms in our state capital buildings. While it is acknowledged that armed guards are on the premises and do a fine job, it must also be acknowledged that numerous events, meetings, and hearings with hundreds, ...

What’s changed?

President Obama was in favor of a wall. Nancy Pelosi was in favor of a wall. Hillary Clinton was in favor of a wall. Chuck Schumer was in favor of a wall. What has changed? Oh, yeah. A Republican is now in the White House. Maybe someday the Democrats will care more about the country ...

Solution to climate change

We have a major problem on our hands for 2019, climate change. This issue isn’t going to solve itself and will continue to get worse if we fail to act. But there is a ray of light at the end of this dark tunnel, carbon pricing. Carbon pricing is when a government places a fee or tax on ...

An open letter

Dear Mr. Watkins, I am impressed with your empirical evidence of arrests , criminal charges, criminal convictions and overall apprehensions at the border. Does a wall make sense? The arrest data makes the case that border security does not allow people to pour into the country undetected, ...
