Early voting in this election is just days away with some states voting on marijuana reform. Whether states are voting on marijuana reform, medical or recreational, any success in these states would be a win for ending marijuana prohibition and the failed drug war.
Which states are voting on marijuana legalization?
California has a long history of voting on marijuana reform. The latest measure, Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), legalizes:
the possession of 1 ounce of marijuana flower, or up to 8 grams of cannabis concentrates for those 21 years and older,
the cultivation of up to 6 plants, in addition to hemp production,
a taxed and regulated system for a recreational marijuana industry.
California’s recreational marijuana law is intricate. It outlines marketing restrictions to minors, allows local tax rates and limitations on commercial marijuana operators to be in the hands of local counties and municipalities, and several other stipulations.
The measure is backed by Let’s Get it Right CA, Governor Gavin Newsom, the ACLU, NAACP, Drug Policy Alliance, Students for a Sensible Drug Policy, NORML and Marijuana Policy Project.
Nevada votes on recreational marijuana legalization in November. The stated passed medical marijuana in 2000. For residents 21 years and older, the initiative would legalize: possession of 1 ounce of marijuana,
a taxed and regulated recreational cannabis industry with tax revenue supporting K-12 education,
and includes a clause that allows anyone who does not live within 25 miles of a marijuana store to grow up to 6 marijuana plants.

It seems the media has been on Donald J. Trump’s side from the beginning. They have let him get away with everything but murder. He’s been accused of a long list of things that the media hides from us on a daily basis and never confront him because they are too busy worried about Hillary’s health or her emails. It’s finally time that a hero to the left stands up and screams out for some common sense and morality in this election.
Keith Olbermann has made a video for GQ magazine online with a headline of 176 Reasons Donald Trump Shouldn’t Be President. In the debut episode of his new series, “The Closer with Keith Olbermann,” GQ’s Keith Olbermann tallies the most outrageous of Donald Trump’s offenses in what is now his 15-month assault on American democracy.
Watch the video and let us know in the comments which one of these 176 reasons the media should speak of the most instead of ignore.
If you thought the 2008 election was bad with a black man running for the White House then the thought of four more years of his legacy and a woman as President have really got the Trump supporters fired up. In Richardson, Texas a couple are mourning the loss of their dog who was allegedly poisoned to death after having ingested a deadly neurotoxin.
The death of Matt and Beth Steadman’s two-year-old shepherd mix, named Abby, has been part of a series of attacks in their community to the couple because of a political sign in their front yard supporting presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“Hillary Clinton, I’m with her,” Steadman stated, but three signs endorsing the candidate have already been stolen. Many remember this happening back when Obama / Biden were running a tight race with many signs stolen but not all of the violent threats we are seeing now.
A note was left for the Steadmans stating “Hillary for Prison 2016” then the following day, the family’s vehicle was vandalized when someone poured bleach into the gas tank. Then came the worst of all the harassment when their dog Abby started shaking on Sunday. The couple rushed her to the vet, but on Tuesday their devoted little canine pal died; their veterinarian stating the dog had been poisoned.
No one knows for sure if their support for Clinton caused the vandalism of their new car or Abby’s death. No investigation is underway by police even though a report is on file. The couple will continue to support the candidate of their choice – isn’t that what America is all about? They hope someone comes forward and tells them who killed their dog and why. It’s not like Abby could even vote.
Rest in peace Abby.
Ted Cruz was caught red handed cheating for votes lying about Ben Carson in Iowa but now we found out that Marco Rubio is cheating his way to the top. An Austin radio station KLBJ received dozens of complaints today that Texas voting machines had changed their votes mostly from Donald Trump to Senator Marco Rubio.
The hosts of KLBJ’s Todd And Don Show noted that three callers had already complained about their votes being switched from Trump to Rubio when a fourth caller dialed in to say her ballot had been switched from Trump to Linda Gray.
“That’s not good,” one of the hosts agreed. “You are the fourth person to call us in the past half hour to say they had that same problem. They voted for Trump but it popped up Rubio or somebody else. You’re the first to have somebody else, but the other three were Rubio.”
