From kstp.com, 11/1/16: It's been three months since chronic pain became a qualifying condition for medical marijuana in Minnesota. While the program continues to struggle with low enrollment and high costs, some see reasons for optimism. One such reason is a recent uptick in patients. According to the most recent numbers from the state, more than 700 health care practitioners are now authorized to certify patients for the state's medical marijuana program, and nearly 4,000 Minnesotans are now enrolled.

No matter what a NYtimes journalist believes..This is the reality that workers face: They arrive at Walmart with dreams of rising in the ranks and developing a career, but a bureaucratic and discouraging system of managers who are only concerned with their stores’ bottom lines, and not the development of workers, keeps these new employees stranded at $9 an hour. The Times further reported that half a million employees leave the company each year.
