COVID-19: We want to hear about the ‘unsung heroes’ during these tough times


                                       #STAYHOME


To say that we’re living in a unprecedented time would absolutely be an understatement. Most businesses are closed, the healthiest option for us is to lock ourselves in our homes, and we don’t know when any of it is going to end.

But in tough times there are always those who step up, go above and beyond, and do something that many of us others would never think about doing.

We want to hear about those people. The unsung heroes.

According to Grammarist, a unsung hero is “a person who has achieved great things or committed acts of bravery or self-sacrifice, yet is not celebrated or recognized. An unsung hero may be someone who acts bravely in battle without notice, or someone who sacrifices himself for the good of the group, without recognition

                                                              How can we be​gin to address this p​roblem of gun violence?

Social scientist say the violence amongst our youth is due to mental illnesses, but I don’t agree. I don’t want to label our inner city youth “sick” because I believe these issues stem from a lack of productive alternatives in their communities.

Illegal guns and drugs flood lower income neighborhoods and the at-risk kids that need resources the most aren’t receiving any. Most are left without positive guidance and are looking for direction anywhere they can find it. Unfortunately, that usually means joining the neighborhood street gangs.

These kids are constantly exposed to negativity and the threat of violence. In their world, it’s cool to be bad or not pursue an education. If we are to combat the onslaught of violence, we need to provide these kids positive activities and environments as a form of balance.


 we hear kids say all the time, how it’s hard to stay out of trouble when there is nothing else to do. There are few neighborhood community centers, and territorial gangs make it unsafe for most kids to venture into other neighborhoods where their may be a Boys Club or PAL (Police Athletic League).

 

          NEW YORK’S NEW MARIJUANA “DECRIMINALIZATION” AND                       EXPUNGEMENT LAW: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

                                                     LOUD BUD WEED SMOKE

1. DECRIMINALIZATION

In New York State, beginning on August 28, 2019:

It will be a non-criminal violation, not a crime, to possess up to 2 ounces of marijuana

Police can still stop and question you for this violation, but if you live in New York State and have an ID they are supposed to give you a ticket, not put you through the system. You have the right to contest the ticket if you think you did not violate the law, but if you choose not to, you will simply pay a fine

The maximum penalty for possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana (a non-criminal violation) will be a $50 fine [PL 221.05]

The maximum penalty for possession of up to 2 ounces of marijuana (a non-criminal violation) will be a $200 fine [PL 221.10]

Smoking marijuana in places like bars, restaurants, workplaces and on public transit violates the public health law [PHL 1399-O]

You can’t be arrested for a Public Health Law violation, but you will be given a ticket and, unless you contest the ticket, required to pay a fine

“Marijuana” under the new law includes the plant, seeds, and any oil or resin extracted from the plant [PHL 3302]

It is still illegal under New York State law to sell, trade, transport, or grow marijuana

Medical marijuana use and possession is legal in New York State if you have a valid Medical Marijuana Card

It is still illegal under federal law to possess/smoke, sell, trade, transport, or grow marijuana. What this means for New Yorkers still has to be seen
