B) Marijuana has tremendous health benefits, on a variety of different conditions including but not limited to: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, migraines, insomnia, la...

When you get married you g...

American Indians have received reparations from America in three forms: 1. Cash Payments 2. Land 3. Tribal Recognition. Germany has been paying reparations to Israel since 1953 for slave labor and the holocaust. They negotiated to pay Israel to what amounts to 13,600,000,000 dollars. If the Native Americans and Jews deserve reparations so do African Americans. Free...
