People have been asking me, what’s this cannabis culture you write about? What is a culture? Culture is the way of life of a particular group of people, the customs, traditions and values of a society. In a wider sense of the word, as in agriculture or tissue culture, culture is alive.
We Alaskans have statutory and constitutional language available to determine whether cannabis social clubs are lawful. The “Act to tax and regulate the production, sale and use of marijuana” begins: “In the interest of allowing law enforcement to focus on violent and property crimes, and to enhance individual freedom, the people of the state of Alaska find and declare that the use of marijuana should be legal for persons 21 years of age or older.”

City council members Heath Smith, Bryan Zak, Donna Aderhold and Gus Van Dyke voted to introduce Ordinance 16-06 to ban commercial cannabis.

I’m Lindianne Sarno, and I’m bicycling for mayor. In the next few weeks you’ll be able to to read my answers to tough questions posed by Homer’s journalists. Today I simply want to tell you why I love Homer. I have lived 4.5 years on Kachemak Bay. This will always be my watershed, my place. Homer is a place where migrants settle. I came here because I love snow, water, fish, wool and saunas. I stay because I love the people of Kachemak Bay.
It’s time for the Freedom Show because the corporate takeover of these united states has finally overreached to the level of angering America’s European allies: The National Security Agency monitors German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s cell phone.
