Federally Legalize Cannabis Enough is Enough!

The current Federal Housing Rules regarding cannabis are outdated, archaic, and can lead to serious problems. Not only do they force people outside of their homes to smoke cannabis in public areas, but this can have a detrimental effect on the community. This is especially disconcerting in neighborhoods where there are children present—people should not be smoking weed around kids or exposing them to its effects. The war on drugs has been an utter failure and the results of it have been far more damaging than beneficial. People who choose to use marijuana recreationally should not be forced into crowded public spaces to become intoxicated; this is both irresponsible and dangerous for those individuals as well as the people around them. Furthermore, forcing people out of their homes can lead to an increase in street dealers and drug-related crime in federal housing areas. It's time for Congress to wake up and recognize that current cannabis prohibition laws are outdated and detrimental to society. Legalizing marijuana on a federal level would not only give people the freedom to enjoy consuming it safely within their own homes, but it would also lessen the criminalization of its use—which has had disastrous consequences throughout minority communities across America. It is essential that lawmakers take steps toward reforming these outdated rules so that all individuals can have safer access to cannabis without having to risk potential harm or legal repercussions. It is high time for Congress to act on reforming the Federal Housing Rules regarding cannabis if we want our society to move forward with progressive change. The criminalization of marijuana has had devastating effects on minority communities across America and it’s essential that lawmakers take steps toward creating a safer environment for those who choose to consume it. It’s up to the government to make sure that individuals can use cannabis safely within their own homes without risk of potential harm or legal repercussions. The archaic rules must be updated and amended if we want a better future for cannabis users take action, legalize marijuana federally, and create a better future for all. ​​​​​​​ #cannabis #people #community #environment #change #future #legal #housing #society #mentalhealthawareness #psychedelictherapy #psychedelicscience #psychedelicmedicine

Offensive Noises in your Home Can Hurt You!

The effects of prolonged exposure to offensive noises and sleep disturbances on our brains and bodies can be devastating. In my own case, I was subjected to such noise for a prolonged period of time, and it eventually caused me to have a nervous breakdown. My doctor prescribed three weeks of rest as treatment and, despite this, I was then returned to the same source of offensive noise. This seemed insane—I had been given no chance or opportunity for any kind of recovery from the physical and mental trauma that these noises had inflicted on me. Unfortunately, bureaucracy meant that there was little recourse open to me in addressing this issue. The landlord had taken over five months to repair the unit I had moved into which suggested it hadn't been ready to be leased in the first place. This prolonged exposure to offensive noises doesn't just cause stress and sleeplessness but can also lead to more serious sleep disorders such as micro-arousals each time the noise happens, resulting in a decrease in deep sleep as well as R.E.M. (Dream) sleep. Research has demonstrated that without sufficient restorative deep sleep, our bodies are unable to repair themselves properly and so can become increasingly vulnerable to physical and mental health issues. This becomes even more dangerous if there is repeated exposure to noise disturbances. Ultimately, this experience highlights an urgent need for better protection against such offensive noise. It is simply unacceptable that people should be left exposed to such damaging environmental conditions with no way out other than to suffer in silence. If changes aren’t made soon, then more people may find themselves in a similar situation as I did. With this in mind, it is essential that agencies, landlords, and other related authorities recognize the need to not only take effective action when complaints are made about offensive noise but also ensure that any environmental improvements needed to resolve the problem are implemented as quickly and efficiently as possible. Better yet make sure the unit or home you are leasing is fit to be occupied. This will enable individuals to receive the necessary protection they deserve and avoid putting them through further unnecessary distress. It is time we all stand up against this kind of injustice and make sure our voices are heard! Ultimately, it is essential that we all take a stand against this type of injustice and make sure our voices are heard! It is time for agencies, landlords, and other related authorities to recognize the need to not only take effective action when complaints are made about offensive noise but also ensure that any environmental improvements needed to resolve the problem are implemented as quickly and efficiently as possible. In this way, individuals can be guaranteed the necessary protection they deserve and avoid putting them through further unnecessary distress. So, let’s raise our voices together and demand better standards for people that lost the game of capitalism. The elderly, the working poor, the disabled, and those that were hurt either from COVID-19 or like me, I had an allergic reaction to the vaccine. So, these folks will never again have to suffer in silence due to prolonged exposure to offensive noises. We owe it to ourselves, our communities, and most importantly those that are too afraid to speak up! Let’s take a stand together and make sure our voices are heard!

Equity Skimming, Predatory Loans, & Homelessness

The exploitation of the working poor by wealthy individuals is a serious issue that needs to be addressed. While many people may think only Billionaires are guilty of such practices, this is not necessarily true. A prime example of this type of exploitation comes in the form of predatory lending. This occurs when lenders target individuals with lower incomes and charge them much higher interest rates than they would typically offer someone with better credit or a larger income. Loansharking is another form of financial exploitation. In this instance, lenders will lend large sums of money to small business owners that have no hope of paying it back on time or at all. They do so knowing full well that if their borrower cannot make payments, they can seize their assets and sell them off for a profit. Equity skimming is also becoming increasingly common, particularly in the wake of the 2008 housing crisis. In this case, wealthy individuals will buy properties at a discounted rate from desperate homeowners who are facing foreclosure and then rent or resell them for a much higher price than what was originally paid. This practice leaves people vulnerable to homelessness as they no longer have any equity in their homes and often can't afford to purchase new ones. It's clear that predatory lending, loan-sharking, and equity skimming are all forms of exploitation that must be addressed if we wish to stop wealthy individuals from exploiting the working poor. Not only do these practices prevent deserving people from achieving financial stability, but they also contribute to the widening of the income gap and further entrench poverty. It's time for governments, lenders, and individuals alike to work together to create a fairer economic system that doesn't disproportionately benefit those at the top.

Profits! But At What Cost?

Real estate manipulation is not a new phenomenon. Wealthy individuals have been using their influence and money to buy up property for generations, driving prices up and making it difficult or impossible for average citizens to purchase homes. However, recent reports paint an even more disturbing picture of the housing market, where billionaire investors are allegedly employing real estate agents as fronts in order to buy up all available inventory, thus driving prices even higher. This has raised significant concerns about equity in the housing market and whether or not normal people can still afford to purchase a home. It is important to remember that while some wealthy individuals may be actively manipulating the housing market, this does not mean that everyone with means is engaging in such unethical practices. The vast majority of real estate agents are still committed to helping people find homes worth living in, and county housing authorities continue to work with local governments to provide assistance for those that need it. Even if the market is being manipulated by a select few, there are still opportunities for everyone else to purchase a home. Ultimately, the manipulation of the housing market reflects much larger issues of inequality in our society. It underscores the importance of creating policies that ensure fairness and equity so that all citizens can have access to safe, affordable housing. Going forward, it is essential that we continue to investigate reports of real estate manipulation while also developing solutions that will make sure everyone has an opportunity to own their own home regardless of economic background or wealth. By taking proactive steps to ensure fairness in the housing market, we can make sure that everyone has a chance at the American dream of owning their own home. In doing so, we can create a better and more equitable society for everyone.
