Our #6 nonprofit, Oxfam International is aimed to provide lasting solutions to the injustice of poverty. And addressing water problems is one of their strategies:

Oxfam helps negatively affected communities do the following:


Understand the root causes of the water problems they are facing and, if possible, protect themselves from dangers.

Network with other affected people so they can share coping strategies, join forces, and strengthen their abilities to bring about change.

Voice their concerns to governments, corporations, and individuals responsible for the development projects.

Educate key players about the negative impact the development projects are having on the local communities, and work together to find a solution that is safe and equitable for all.

  1. In your blog you admit in medical marijuana states only a handful of doctors are writing certifications after only doing a cursory review of the patient. And your point? A handful is 5-10 and with over 12,000 qualified physicians in Arizona this seems to be a very miniscule number of doctors that might not be following the ADHS rules to a T. Stop painting the medical marijuana program like it’s ripe for abuse because it’s not. You never talk about Oregon or Washington where they have been running patient collectives and dispensaries for years and they are models for what Arizona will be doing shortly. It’s all about sick and ill patients having access to their medicine without fear of being arrested.
