Recreational Marijuana Could Be Legal In New Jersey By Next Summer « CBS New York

TRENTON, N.J. – Democrat Phil Murphy’s win in New Jersey Tuesday night could pave the way for the legalization of recreational marijuana. Democratic state Sen. Nicholas Scutari, the sponsor of a recreational cannabis bill, says Murphy is fully committed to legalizing marijuana. With support from the governor-elect and legislative leaders, proponents of recreational marijuana say sales could begin next summer. Proponents say legalizing pot would cut down on arrests and make the drug cheaper. 

Wolski said legalization would make marijuana more like an over-the-counter drug. Sales taxes revenue from legal cannabis could rake in an estimated $300 million a year, WCBS 880’s Marla Diamond reported. The governor-elect intends to use the money to help the ailing public employee pension system. Democratic Senate President Steve Sweeney hopes to pass the measure as soon as the new governor gets situated. Scutari said he will continue to meet with industry leaders as he revises the bill. 

Gov. Chris Christie was adamantly opposed to the legislation, labeling marijuana a gateway drug to opioids.

Man Arrested With Large Quantity of Marijuana & THC Wax

A traffic stop for a red light violation led to the discovery of almost 450 grams of marijuana, marijuana wax and the arrest of the driver. On May 29, 2018, at approximately 10 p.m. a CCPD Patrol officer observed a white sedan run through the red light at the intersection of Del Prado Boulevard and SE 26th Street. The officer stopped the vehicle a few blocks south and made contact with the driver, Austin Grimm. The officer could immediately smell an overwhelming odor of raw cannabis emanating from the inside of the vehicle, and Grimm was detained. 

A search of the vehicle led to the discovery of a white trash bag containing two gallon-size Ziplock bags full of marijuana, as well as a small amount of marijuana and a grinder in the center console. Also found in the trunk was a container with a large sheet of THC wax. The marijuana was weighed at 449.2 grams, and the wax was weighed at 33.3 grams. Based on these discoveries, Grimm was placed under arrest and transported to the Lee County Jail.

Maine House overturns governor’s veto of marijuana bill

The Maine House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday to override Gov. Paul LePage’s veto of a measure to allow the commercial sale of marijuana in the state. The House overrode the veto with a 109-39 vote, according to The Portland Press Herald. The bill now heads to the state Senate, where lawmakers must vote by a two-thirds margin to overturn LePage’s veto. The newspaper previously reported that senators believe they have the support to overturn a veto. 

The measure was crafted by a special legislative committee, and previously passed the House and Senate by wide margins. LePage vetoed the measure arguing that it would violate federal law. Nine states, including Maine, and the District of Columbia have moved to legalize recreational marijuana use, but the substance remains federally prohibited. Although possession of recreational marijuana has been legal in Maine since 2016, there has been no process to legally sell it in the state. The post Maine House overturns governor’s veto of marijuana bill appeared first on Cannabis Business Executive – Cannabis and Marijuana industry news.

Leftists Now Say Term ‘Marijuana’ Racist » Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!

Leftists have set their sights on the latest problematic word in their feverish attempt to rewrite language. The word marijuana is now racist and has been expunged from the Newspeak dictionary. The article goes on to state that despite legalization, high arrests continue to be made in certain areas due to obvious racism. Of course the simple explanation is that more police officers are patrolling black neighborhoods due to high violent crime rates, meaning marijuana users are more likely to be caught in those areas. While no one denies the obvious over-the-top narrative pushed by the government during the reefer-madness era, the notion that marijuana arrests are solely the result of racism is disproven by the facts. 

Twitter users were quick to criticize the story for what they felt was yet another non-issue. You damage your credibility and alienate your readers. Alexhalperin What ever you have been smoking to convince you that this was even remotely a good article, I want some. Quite possibly the stupidest thing I’ve read all day.

Listology

About a week and a half ago, the server which listology lived on suffered a catastrophic failure. Through a perfect storm of circumstances far too lengthy and tedious to explain, I found myself without an easy backup from which to restore, and my hosting provider found themselves unable to restore my site from the weekly server images that they store every week. They continue to work on that problem, however at this point I don’t have an enormous amount of confidence in their ability to succeed, and I have started to explore other options. I do have a copy of the raw database files that Listology ran on, and I am going to attempt to get these up and running. This could serve to be time consuming, and at the same time I am also hunting for a new hosting provider. 

In the meantime, know that I have all your data and lists, and that one way or another we will get them back online. I do not have a timeline, and my work and personal lives are extremely busy right now. And Listology will return as soon as it can.

The Best Comedy Duos on TV Right Now – Flavorwire

After three months of cruel hiatus, Greendale reopens its doors to the best study group in the history of television. There are a lot of things we’ve missed since Dan Harmon, et al, took the piss out of Glee in a typically wonderful Christmas special: Jeff’s arrogance, Dean Pelton’s randomness, Britta’s, well, britta-ing everything she touches. Perhaps what we’ve longed for most is the heartwarmingly dorky, ridiculously culturally literate friendship between Danny Pudi’s Abed and Donald Glover’s Troy. We’re so inspired by the pair that we’ve rounded up the ten greatest comedy duos on TV right now. Let us know who you’d add to the list in the comments. 

Community college best friends and roommates Troy and Abed rap, they host a fake morning TV show, they geek out about pop culture. They’re just like us! Except, you know, consistently funny.
