    Larry Krasner Sues Big Pharma, Drops All Marijuana Possession Charges
    With a little over a month in office, Philly's new DA is already further reforming the city's drug policy. On the same day a Philly.com op-ed was published in which Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner (and Mayor Kenney) admitted the failure that was the "War on Drugs," in the 1980s and '90s, the DA's office announced that it is suing 10 pharmaceutical companies in connection with the opioid epidemic and is dropping all outstanding marijuana possession charges.

    Thank you, Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro, for giving me cover so I don't wind up being painted as the "worst person in the world," the label Keith Olbermann used on his TV show to hang on people he didn't like. I have been silent as the opioid epidemic raged because I had no clear-cut solution.

    Subsidized housing can change lives. Now it's facing deep cuts | Opinion - Philly
    The 2019 budget released by the White House calls for deep cuts, $8.8 billion or an 18.3% reduction, to the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This would reduce the availability of subsidized housing and vouchers, like the Housing Choice Voucher Program that allowed Paloma to rent a home, even with her very low income.

    After announcing the seizure of 250,000 bags of fentanyl-laced heroin on Tuesday, state Attorney General Josh Shapiro again criticized Philadelphia's decision to approve so-called safe-injection sites. "I think they're illegal," Shapiro said at a news conference in Tinicum Township, Delaware County. "There's no safe way to inject yourself with this type of poison."
