Marijuana Goes Mainstream with 4 More States Considering Legalization

You are NOT going to believe which state is about to legalize medicinal marijuana.

Looking around our nation this week, it would be foolish to believe that we couldn’t use some mellowing out in America today.

Over the course of the last 10 days, our nation has been rocked by a number of heinous and violent crimes that shake our foundation to the very core.  Between bombings, hate crimes, and random acts of pure evil, Americans are rightfully scared, paranoid, and on edge.

Furthermore, in economic concerns, we have allowed Canada to out-freedom us by legalizing recreational marijuana nationwide in a move that will almost certainly create a massive boom for our northern neighbor’s economy.

In the US, however, this progress has been piecemeal…but at least some progress is being made.

In an interview with Roll Call this month, Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) described Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s dismay upon hearing that voters in Utah seem set to approve medical marijuana when they go to the polls on November 6. “I said that even Utah is most likely going to legalize medical marijuana this year,” Gardner recalled. “McConnell looks and me, and he goes, ‘Utah?’ [He had] this terrified look. And as he says that, Orrin Hatch walks up, and Mitch looks at Orrin and says, ‘Orrin, is Utah really going to legalize marijuana?’ And Orrin Hatch folds his hands, looks down at his feet, and says, ‘First tea, then coffee, and now this.'”

That’s right…Utah.  One of the most devout and strict-on-recreational drug states in the nation is moving forward with at least partial legalization of the powerful plant, whose medicinal qualities would legitimately threaten the big pharmaceutical industry.

Other states eyeing such a move in 2018 are Michigan, North Dakota, and Missouri.

Already in the US well over half of the states allow for medical, recreational, or decriminalized possession of the plant.

And if Utah’s doing it, I’m not sure what President Trump is waiting on in order to federally end prohibition of this weed that could usher in a golden age of American prosperity.  Tick, tock, Mr. President.

Report: Rumors Swirl That Bill Barr Considering Resigning Due to Trump’s Tweets, AG Responds

For real?

Bill Barr knew that President Trump loved tweeting before he accepted the nomination to once again become attorney general of the United States. Recently though, Barr said Trump’s tweets have made it hard for him to do his job. Trump shrugged off the comments. He didn’t see them as a big deal. But now, apparently, Barr is considering leaving his position. Here’s what is known, via Fox News: Attorney General Bill Barr told people close to him that he’s considering stepping down over President Trump’s tweets, multiple reports said Tuesday, days after Barr admitted that Trump’s tweeting made it “‘impossible for me to do my job.” https://twitter.com/ZekeJMiller/status/1229960817358954497?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1229960817358954497&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fbreaking-report-ag-barr-is-considering-quitting-over-trumps-tweets%2F More from Washington Post: The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations. […] Barr had a previously scheduled lunch with the White House counsel Tuesday and was still the attorney general by day’s end — indicating that the president’s moves that day were not enough to push him to resign.

Even for Joe Biden, a man known for making outlandish statements with no basis in reality, this proposal is quite something. Imagine sending $20 billion to a foreign country to have them not lift a finger. This is how nutty the left has become.

They want to earn their paychecks to feel as though they are contributing. So, when far-left candidates propose eliminating jobs – for pretty much any reason – it doesn’t sit well, nor should it. Biden, apparently, doesn’t understand this. The fact that the economy is thriving means next to nothing to him and it’s pretty sad. To talk of eliminating hundreds of thousands of jobs because the AOC’s of the nation think they know what’s best is downright pathetic. From Daily Wire: Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden signaled support for eliminating hundreds of thousands of blue collar jobs on Thursday night in order to transition to a “greener economy.” https://twitter.com/FrancisBrennan/status/1207838340231380992?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1207838340231380992&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fbiden-eliminate-hundreds-of-thousands-of-blue-collar-jobs-for-greener-economy H/T: Twitchy
