A Military Coup, by its very definition, describes the illegal overthrow of a state and seizure of power by the military. The Zimbabwe Military Coup, like many other past coups in Africa, doesn’t seem to be bothered by this definition though.

Sexual Harassment has become the prime topic. Since the Bill O’Reilly and Harvey Weinstein allegations broke, we have been constantly bombarded with new facts, victims, offenders, and allegations.

Amsterdam is the weed capital of Europe, maybe even the world. That’s what people all around the world say at least. Cannabis aficionados love Amsterdam for its vast buffet of drugs, prostitution and, well, fun. But guess what, cannabis and other substances aren’t really legal in Amsterdam. The capital of the Netherlands struggles, like every other nation, with the circulation of hard drugs. They have, however, found a unique way of dealing with it. Namely tolerating cannabis and helping drug addicts deal with their addiction.
We are at war, haven’t you noticed? We are all caught up in the middle of the War on Drugs, initiated by Richard Nixon in 1971, a war that is not unlike any other, with an insane amount of casualties worldwide, unrests and no real solution in sight.
