Ill-advised flavored tobacco bans

It was 50 years ago today that President Richard Nixon declared drugs to be “public enemy No. 1.” What followed was the War on Drugs, which unleashed the force of government to eradicate forbidden chemicals  by punishing those who enjoyed or sold them. In recent years, public and political sentiment has increasingly come to the view that prohibition of substances, coupled with enforcement by the state, has done more harm than good. California led the way in curtailing the drug war as it existed ...

The move could make it easier for them to win their cases for ...

California’s charter school war flares up again

When Gavin Newsom succeeded Jerry Brown as California’s governor two years ago, it re-ignited the Capitol’s long-running conflict over charter schools, which receive public funds but operate independently of traditional public school systems. As mayor of Oakland, Brown had founded two charter schools, the Oakland Military Institute and the Oakland School for the Arts, and during his second governorship was protective of the charter alternative. However, the public school establishment, led by th...
