Advocate Yael Published at Watchdog.org About Vermont’s Pot Laws

Young Voices Advocate Yaël Ossowski was published by Watchdog.org writing about Vermont’s pot laws:

In July of this year, Vermont lawmakers took a bold step.

They removed criminal penalties for those caught with small amounts of marijuana.

Now, 5 months later, decriminalization of pot is generally judged to be a great success in the Green Mountain State, a sentiment which could push Vermont to be the third state in the union to legalize marijuana outright.

Advocate Ulrich Published in Forbes

Young Voices Advocate Ulrich Zanconato was published by Forbes writing about Italy’s economic woes:

Mr. Berlusconi and the centre-left parties managed to maintain the status quo over the past 20 years and Mr. Berlusconi’s judicial problems as well as his scandals served to distract the citizens from the real pressing issues. Italy’s woes are very serious; Italy is at the ground, it is dying, but no one seems really interested in curing it. It is much easier to focus on Mr. Berlusconi and his threat to continue to fight outside Parliament. Yet, his expulsion from the Senate does not mean the end of Italy’s problems: we are all going together towards the end.

Advocate MK Published in Bitcoin Magazine

Young Voices Advocate MK Lords was published by Bitcoin Magazine writing about charities using Bitcoin:

Bitcoin is changing the way we think about money and transactions, and during its brief existence has changed the way not only businesses operate, but has also been instrumental in setting new standards for charities. The cryptocurrency gets a bad rap as being a tool of drug dealers or other unsavory criminal elements, but it has changed thousands of lives through its application in unconventional charities (recently dubbed “Bitcoin charities.”) These charities shatter preconceptions of what a deflationary currency can be used for and how aid gets directly to those in need. Bitcoin charities run more efficiently, help the individuals assisted be more self-sufficient, and avoids the high fees and inconvenience of payment systems such as PayPal.

Associate Cathy Published in Forbes

Young Voices Associate Cathy Reisenwitz was published by Forbes writing about #HandsOffMyBirthControl:

Neither health insurance nor birth control would be too expensive for the vast majority of Americans if we were legally allowed to enjoy an actual market for health insurance. It’s time to stop looking at the next Supreme Court case for justice for American women and start looking at crafting a health care system that works. Tax code changes, freedom of choice in plans and interstate competition are just the start. Instead of telling employers #HandsOffMyBirthControl, it’s time for Millennials to tell the government #HandsOffMyHealthInsurance.
