To Legalize Marijuana or Not

It’s just one simple question: Should we legalize marijuana? There is a high favorability toward passing legislation to do just that. After all, there are many medicinal uses already. And, there are many opportunities for medical advancements. Really, is it worse than alcohol or cigarettes? How many different chemicals are found in just one cigarette compared to all natural marijuana? How many people get behind the wheel of an automobile under the influence of alcohol resulting in the death of another? There are so many questions and concerns that must be hashed out. In my opinion: Pass it and Tax it!

A few weeks ago, it was found out that IS is operating roughly 8 miles from our southern border. Judicial Watch is now reporting that IS is working with Mexican drug cartels to enter into the US.

On This Day In History

  • 1861 – Robert E. Lee resigned from the US Army after 32 years. Upon leaving, he went to serve his home state of Virginia during the Civil War. On April 9, 1865 he surrendered to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House.
  • 1871 – The Ku Klux Act was passed by Congress as asked to by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to combat the growing racial threats in the Deep South by hate groups like the KKK.

Who Said That?

Last week, I brought to you how Gwyneth Paltrow announced she was going to take part in a food stamps challenge. Well, there’s been a change in plans. She couldn’t make it. She lasted only days before being spotted going into a posh LA restaurant.

This week, I bring to you LZ Granderson on ABC’s This Week, talking about how the 2016 GOP field is ‘intolerant.’
