At first glance, Eastern Michigan University’s ban of medicinal marijuana on campus might appear to be unfairly opposing the general public of Michigan.

It’s not unreasonable to ask a few questions about President Obama authorizing a drone strike that killed American-born Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki in Yemen on Sept.30.
