Lend me a hand

. May 17, 2012.

Sharing information and learning proper skills is necessary to build sustainable communities. Many people within the Ann Arbor community are equipped with the knowledge and resources to assist in the creation of a better environment and many more ready to put sustainable philosophies into practice, but do not know where to turn. That is where the Green Hands Reskilling Initiative lends a hand. The initiative’s concept is simple—people within the community that are knowledgeable about “green” ideas and practices display a Green Hand sign in front of their residence to indicate they are willing to teach their skill set, and people who are looking to learn know where to go.

I voted for the medical cannabis law years ago because, in my view, cannabis is not a dangerous product, and too many people were being imprisoned for its use. At that time, however, I did not subscribe to the argument that there were legitimate medical uses for cannabis. How things have changed.
