At last night’s Associated Students Presidential Forum, candidate Belina Seare opened by stating that the fact that she is running unopposed is indicative of a huge issue with a lack of involvement with the AS by Western students.
OPINION: Weed Education 101 – In a world where marijuana is becoming legal, how will we educate future youth?By The Western Front | April 21
It’s the year 2015, and we college students have grown up in a very peculiar period. We were raised in a world where marijuana was illegal and now that’s changing – and it’s changing fast. Washington’s liberal politics push progressive movements forward faster than most, so we see change more rapidly than most other states. But what role will kush play in our society in the future?
In the upper-left corner of the nation, we are blessed with a progressive community that supports progressive language and cultural diversity. At Western specifically, we live in a liberal bubble, and we are expected by many of our peers to keep up with the wide variety of constantly evolving social phrasing. While it is a natural understanding that inclusive language should be embraced, it shouldn’t be taken as an insult if someone doesn’t utilize the proper language. These changes aren’t basic knowledge to everyone, and it’s hard to keep up.
