We need to do what the majority of the state wants, make marijuana legal for personal use, forRead More people over the age of 21. The facts are out and only people without the internet don’t know marijuana is good for the human body (That is why our brains have cannabinoid receptors). For an adult consuming the plant they would need to consume over 1000lbs of cannabis to die from it. The only way you will get hurt from using marijuana is if the NH State Police kill or kidnap you because you like to smoke or eat a plant. At the very least we need to allow the sick to grow their own marijuana to make their lives comfortable. Stop living in the very much so ignorant past. Legalize Cannabis.

Deb June 19, 2014 at 03:00 am
@JimC - where are the facts cited that private school provides a better education than publicRead More school? My husband and I are both products of public school systems in Mass and NH. We have both been successful and our 2 children are currently in the Windham high school public school system. They both excel in math (both are above grade level) as well as language skills. They are both capable of making change as well as figuring out what a 20% off sale means while shopping. Even though they have been fortunate to have good math/language teachers, don't you think education begins at home? We have always taken an active role in their education and we have never thought that the responsibility of their success in learning solely lies with their teachers. We have always been their first teachers and we always supplement their learning with real life education at home. Just my thoughts - many families or school systems don't take active roles in their students' education, which is unfortunate.
Donna Westbrook June 20, 2014 at 01:32 pm
Life skills are not taught in school, life skills are taught in life. If one is talking aboutRead More economics, basic math, budgeting, and so forth, some of those things are taught as well. If you are, on the other hand talking about skills one learns through out a lifetime, no on can do that, because that comes over a matter of time, and age, and experience. We must prepare children for the future so when they head out there into the world, they are prepared. A small budgeting tutorial is enough to teach basic budgeting, and can be taught at home, even on the computer. Teaching about saving, and investing, as well, although I think it would not be a bad idea to teach that in the early grades.
