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.

President Trump Says COVID-19 Vaccine Deliveries To Begin Next Week

Published

on

President Donald Trump stated on Thursday evening that COVID-19 vaccine deliveries would begin early next week. “The whole world is suffering and we are rounding the curve,” the president said. “And the vaccines are being delivered next week or the week after.” Via Fox News: The announcement came during a special Thanksgiving holiday message to U.S. troops overseas via teleconference. Trump noted that front-line workers, medical personnel and senior citizens would be the vaccine’s first recipients. He also argued that his opponent, President-elect Joe Biden, should not be given credit for the vaccines, which he referred to as a “medical miracle” before repeating claims of voting irregularities in the 2020 election. “Joe Biden failed with the swine flu, H1N1, totally failed with the swine flu,” Trump said. “Don’t let him take credit for the vaccines because the vaccines were me and I pushed people harder than they’ve ever been pushed before and we got that approved and through and nobody’s ever seen anything like it.” The comments made by the president come days ahead of a meeting due to take place on December 10, where regulators with the Food and Drug Administration will take a look at Pfizer’s request for an emergency use authorization for the coronavirus vaccine that it has developed along with BioNTech. The latest data to come out of test trials for this particular vaccine, which was revealed earlier in the month, has it being at least 90 percent effective. Moderna is also working on a vaccine and the company stated that their product is 94.5 percent effective in preventing coronavirus infections. Folks, whether you plan on taking the vaccine or not, the good news is that President Trump promised he would have one by the end of the year and he has delivered. Unfortunately, there’s no doubt leftist media…

Single Mom Defies Minnesota State Order, Plans To Open Bar On Friday

Located in a tiny town in the state of Minnesota, a single mother and owner of a small bar that helps provide her fellow residents with entertainment is planning to open up her business on Friday in total defiance of the tyrannical state order that closes all bars and restaurants indefinitely due to the spread of the coronavirus. The woman has already stated that she is willing to pay any fine and even possibly face jail time for her actions. Folks, this is what a bold patriot looks like. via Daily Wire: Larvita McFarquhar owns Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota, a town of 448 people. On November 19, she posted a video on Facebook which was captioned, “Live Music and Food next Friday Night! Come have fun with the Great Tommy Rex or sing your own tunes during Open Mic! November 27 2020, 9pm-11pm Lynd MN.” The video features her saying, “Hi! I’m here at Havens Garden asking everyone to join us November 27 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. for Open Mic Night. Come down and have a good time here at Havens Garden in Lynd, Minnesota.” As John Hinderaker of Powerline reports, that announcement prompted the state to threaten her. Alpha News reported that after she posted the video, a deputy with the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office asked McFarquhar if she was aware that Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (D) had issued a new order forcing all bars and restaurants to be closed and warned her of the consequences if she defied the order. McFarquhar told Alpha News, “I said, ‘Yes, I’m aware, but are you aware that the governor’s mandate is not a law? The governor does not pass laws and you are supposed to uphold the Constitution. You don’t work for the governor; you work for us.’”…
