A combination of greater enforcement and education would help. I also wonder if the novelty will wear off over time.

Should we be concerned that medical marijuana does not have FDA approval? The sale of marijuana has not been legalized by the feds. However, 23-states have passed laws allowing for the sale and distribution of medical marijuana. And three of those states have legalized marijuana for public use. The most corrupt U.S. Attorney General's office in the history of this country has issued "guidelines" to the states. Apparently, these guidelines are intended to help the states ignore federal law. In the meantime, the State of NY has passed a bill allowing for the production, sale, and distribution of medical marijuana. Something's wrong here.

It's heartening to get advice from a left-wing columnist. I'm sure Mr. Cohen is very interested in the future success of the Republican Party. (sarcasm alert)

Hey McCafferty. I'll ask you the same question we "deniers" are always asked: "Who's paying you to write this nonsense?" Of course, I should be careful. At the Coast Guard graduation two weeks ago, Obama said that people like me are "a threat to national security." Obama. The great mastermind. He wants us to pursue his frivolous passions, just like Mao got the Chinese to kill sparrows due to crop failure. McCafferty - the world is on fire. ISIS is here, trying to behead those who champion the 1st amendment (see Pamela Geller), the Chinese are on the move building islands in the Spratlys to attack Taiwan,, Iran is getting the nuke to wipe out Israel (and us with their ICBMs), Iraq has been ceded to ISIS as they rape teenage girls with impunity, the IRS is the big-bully and political wing of the DNC targeting REPS, the NSA vacuums up every text and phone call my family and I make, AND YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.

Ron Belli. We are experiencing the calm before the storm. It's not a question of "if" we're going to get hit again. It's a question of "when." And I believe we are going to get hit HARDER than we did on 9/11. Victor Davis Hanson had a great piece two days ago about this very question. I encourage readers to check it out.

Learning to live with fossil fuels is a little bit like learning to live with water. We can't live without it! Man has yet to develop a technology that will allow us to store potential kinetic energy safely, in a 15-gallon tank, to be used at a moment's notice to drive 200-miles with the need for instant acceleration should an emergency call for it. The solar panel phenomenon in our neighborhoods will disappear once the government stops subsidizing it. As for the Keystone Pipeline, and others like it…there are over 2.4 million miles of pipelines in America transporting hydrocarbons. Do people prefer to have these materials transporter via train? Or do they propose to cease the use of hydrocarbons altogether? I'm with you Russ.

Andrea Moran. Obamacare has had a negative impact on the American people. The government now controls my access to healthcare. The leftists in this country have been pursuing this Holy Grail for decades, and they finally got it, without ONE Republican vote. Never in our country's history has such a monumental piece of legislation passed without bipartisan support. Remember this. The 2700-page bill wasn't read be any legislator prior to the vote. The bill was printed 36-hours before the vote, ensuring that no one would have time to read it. Let's recall Nancy Pelosi's infamous quote, "We have to pass the bill in order to know what's in it." How disgraceful. Seven-million Americans have lost their health insurance, premiums have double and tripled, businesses have reduced employee hours and reconsidered expansion plans. Spouses and children have been dropped from employee sponsored health plans. There are fewer choices for health care plans in this country because of the lack of competition. The cost to the youth for health care has skyrocketed. Annual deductibles have gone through the roof. I've given you facts. You launch ad hominen attacks with your "The people who don’t like it are the Republican right wing, which doesn’t like anything" comment. Let's pray a newly elected Republican president will smash Obamacare and allow competition to enter the health care market.
