Canada Takes Major Step Forward with Legal Marijuana

As yet another example of the ever-shifting times in which we live, a major breakthrough in the “war on drugs” has come to our northern neighbors in Canada.

After a protracted parliamentary battle, the use of recreational marijuana is now legal throughout the nation of Canada.  The move comes amid a newfound global acceptance of the plant’s usefulness and potency.

Marijuana sales officially began in Canada on Wednesday, making it the first G7 country — and the second country in the world after Uruguay — to legalize the drug for all adults.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau campaigned on a promise to legalize marijuana, and his Liberal government delivered in the form of Bill C-45, otherwise known as the Cannabis Act.

While Trudeau cast the bill in a public health lens, in order to make marijuana more difficult for teenagers to access and erode black market profits, the global financial community is eagerly looking at Canada to see how legalization plays out.

The bill legalizes marijuana but leaves it up to each province to set age limits and decide how to sell it. Some provinces, like Ontario — Canada’s most populous province and financial center — won’t have open storefronts on Wednesday.

Ontario marijuana connoisseurs will have to turn to online sales for the time being, at least until their province puts the finishing touches on their sales strategy.

Given Canada’s proximity to the United States, as well as their far shorter growing seasons, there is an incredible case to be made for American legalization on the backs of this Canadian move.

DELUSIONAL: Rachel Maddow Starts Crying On Air After Mueller Report Vindicates Trump

No joke. She actually CRIED on air!

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow is everything that’s wrong with America. She doesn’t understand what makes the United States great, and she’s ignorant when it comes to learning her history. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned in his final Russia collusion report to Attorney General Bill Barr, Maddow actually cried on live TV. That’s not hyperbole. She actually cried.

She’s now calling upon Congress to keep digging for links to Russia collusion, regardless of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s findings. From Daily Wire: Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn’t want Congress to give up on pursuing evidence of President Donald Trump colluding with Russian officials to impact the 2016 elections, even if Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report comes up empty. In a podcast with former Daily Beast chief Tina Brown recorded earlier this week, Clinton was clear in delivering her marching orders to the Democratic Congress: keep digging. “There is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government, for Congress in particular, to be doing more with it,” Clinton said. “And I’m pleased that under Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots.” Why would Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, seemingly come from out of nowhere to blindside the president? Lynne Patton, who works under Ben Carson at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, knows the answer. In short, it involved a lengthy prison sentence – but not for Cohen. Patton wrote in a Facebook post: What many of you may not be aware of is the fact that I can personally confirm that the ONLY…

BOMBSHELL: Ilhan Omar Holds Secret Fundraisers With Islamic Groups Tied to Terror (Details)

Kind of a big friggin’ deal, isn’t it?

Well, here’s something else that won’t endear Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) with conservatives. Apparently, Omar has been holding secret fundraisers with Islamic groups that are tied to terror. Makes you wonder, was Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro right when she said Omar wasn’t “America first?” Food for thought, at the very least. Check it out… From Free Beacon: Democratic freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) has been holding a series of secret fundraisers with groups that have been tied to the support of terrorism, appearances that have been closed to the press and hidden from public view. The content of these speeches, given to predominately Muslim audiences, remains unknown, prompting some of Omar’s critics to express concern about the type of rhetoric she is using before these paying audiences, particularly in light of the lawmaker’s repeated use of anti-Semitic tropes in public. Omar recently spoke in Florida at a private event hosted by Islamic Relief, a charity organization long said to have deep ties to groups that advocate terrorism against Israel. Over the weekend, she will appear at another private event in California that is hosted by CAIR-CA PAC, a political action committee affiliated with the Council on American Islamic Relations, or CAIR a group that was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a massive terror-funding incident. Pirro saw her show canceled for two consecutive Saturday nights after comments she made about freshman Democrat Omar. Many millions of Americans, including President Trump, were not pleased. In fact, it looks like Pirro might’ve been suspended. Check out the pictures below showing Fox News’s lineup. Notice there’s nothing about Pirro on Saturday, 3/23? About the suspension: —@brianstelter reports, per a source, that Fox News suspended @JudgeJeanine for two weeks following her comments on @IlhanMN. (Hence why she wasn’t on air…
