Marijuana legalization will be on the Oregon ballot in November.
Dude. Weed is, like, totally trending. First, the suits over at the New York Times
write an editorial calling for an end to the federal prohibition on marijuana
('cause it worked out so well for booze). Now, Rep. Scott Perry (a Republican from Pennsylvania), has introduced a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives that would decriminalize low-THC strains
, potentially opening a door for nationwide medical usage. (New York Times / CNN)
FREAK OF NATURE:
Blame climate change or the wrath of pissed off higher power, the weather is getting downright strange. A tornado outside of Boston
, a fatal lightning strike at Venice Beach
, and record low temps
in the midwest and south. (Reuters / Washington Post / The Weather Channel).
YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH:
Not enough Sarah Palin
in your life? You're in luck. The controversial politician/talking head now has her own TV channel
Not show. CHANNEL. Yours, for the low low price of $99.95 a year. And what do you get for forking over that Benjamin? The "unfiltered" truth. Skeptical? There's a free trial. (TIME)
