In 1967 Pierre Trudeau, who became Canada’s Prime Minister the following year, introduced legislation that would ultimately decriminalize homosexuality, noting in a famous quote that “the state has no place in the bedrooms of the nation.” Almost 50 years later his son, Justin Trudeau, appears poised to do the same thing for marijuana.

Will California's New Medical MJ Regulations Force Closure of All Los Angeles Dispensaries - by Brett Stone
The way I read the regulations it appears that there is no way for any of the currently operating medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles to comply with the state law and obtain a state license by 2018. Major changes will need to be made for any of the existing dispensaries to comply with the state law and obtain a license to continue operating.

Dr. Jill Stein speaks out in Ferguson July 25, 2015 (video/mp4 32.7MB) - by Jill Stein/IndyRadio edit
How many presidential candidates have visited Ferguson? While there, Jill Stein spoke against systemic racism that leads to fatalities, through forced choices in housing, education, and how we deliver justice. It is amazing she has been painted almost completely invisible by the media - even and especially the "progressive" media.

NJ Gov. Christie Claims Cannabis Legalization is "Blood Money" - by Clown Award Goes to Christie!
At a recent speech given in a drug treatment facility NJ Gov. C. Christie claims that legalization is "blood money" when in fact the opposite is true. This comedian who plans to run for Pres. in 2016 believes then that there is no blood money made in the illegal status of drugs that spurn the cartels and resulting violence of gang warfare? Am nominating NJ Gov. Chris Christie for the 2016 Cannabis Clown Award for making the most logically fallacious statement thus far in 2016!
