National Marijuana Legalization Bill Hits Congress with HILARIOUS Moniker

Outside of the absurdity of outlawing A PLANT, this bill would allow for new American financial boom rivaled only by the Gold Rush of the 1840’s and ’50’s.

Let’s not beat around the bush, (no pun intended):  Marijuana will be legal in the United States sooner rather than later.

And, as I’ve been determined to explain for some time, you don’t need to enjoy the psychoactive effects of the plant to be excited for legalization.  Not only does the cannabis plant contain some extremely powerful medicinal compounds that have been helping cancer patients, epileptic children, and glaucoma sufferers for decades, there is an enormous economic impact that comes with legalizing wacky tobacc-y.

Just ask Colorado, who legalized the plant for recreational use and then had such a tax surplus that they allowed residents to vote on how to spend it.

Trending: Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Now, with Canada and Mexico going legal, the United States will be the only USMCA nation where drug cartels can still peddle their wares.  This is a terrifying reality that we must face.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill seem to understand all of this, and are introducing legislation that could finally bring the United States into the 21st century world of pot-profits.  Hilariously enough, the bill itself is being introduced under the name “H.R. 420”.

The Government is shutdown and employees are furloughed – but members of Congress are still working on introducing important laws. One of which is the federal legalization of marijuana – also known as House Resolution 420.

In a hat tip to the marijuana culture, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced the resolution on Wednesday, amid the Government shutdown. Of course, by now, you’re probably familiar with 420 – a special number in the marijuana scene.

The Oregon Rep. Blumenaur’s bill is actually titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act and would remove cannabis from the federal controlled substances act. Michigan voters passed a similar law in November that legalizes the possession of 2.5 ounces of marijuana outside the home – plus possession of 10 ounces inside a home. Residents can also grow up to 12 plants.

The number “420” has long been associated with recreational use of of the cannabis plant, although its origins are a bit murky.

Perfectly clear, however, is the necessity for such legislation to pass.  Not only would this be an incredible boon to our national economy, it would also push some of the more necessary changes to our private prison system and the life-altering damage it has been causing to non-violent plant-possessing offenders.

Investigation Into Origin Of FBI Russia Probe Expanding Based on ‘New Evidence’

Published

on

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s investigation into the FBI’s Russia probe has reportedly uncovered “new evidence” that is leading to an expansion of efforts to look into the matter. The evidence was apparently unearthed during a trip Durham took with Attorney General William Barr to Italy. Here are more details from TheBlaze: Sources told Fox News that Durham is now “very interested” in talking to former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, two of President Donald Trump’s most vocal critics who served in the Obama administration. Barr and Durham traveled to Italy on extremely short notice, according to the Daily Beast. Once at the U.S. Embassy in Rome, Barr requested “a conference room to meet high-level Italian security agents where he could be sure no one was listening in.” Inside that conference room, Barr and Durham reportedly listened a taped deposition from Joseph Mifsud, an Italian Ministry of Justice source told the Daily Beast. Mifsud is the professor who allegedly told Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos that he had “dirt” on Hillary Clinton. The reason this is so significant is because Papadopoulos spoke with Fox News where he suggested that Mifsud contacted him “as part of a setup orchestrated by intelligence agencies.” “So clearly, there was some sort of global or at least European radar on me while I was living in London and as soon as I was joining the Trump campaign — which not even the media knew at the time — I’m being introduced to Joseph Mifsud, in Rome, at a school that trains the CIA and the FBI. So, why I was introduced to Joseph Mifsud, and why this company introduced me to Joseph Mifsud, now that we know they’re connected to MI6 and the FBI, makes things even more suspicious…

New Survey Finds One-Third Of American Jews Hid Religion For Fear Of Anti-Semitism

Published

on

A new survey has discovered that one-third of American Jews have found ways to hide their religion — not wearing clothing or items that would identify them as Jewish — out of fear they would be victims of anti-Semitism. Check out the details from The Washington Examiner: In addition to finding that many fear the consequences of openly showing Jewish identity, the survey found almost 90% of respondents believe anti-Semitism is a problem in America, with over 80% saying it has increased in the past five years. The survey, released Wednesday and conducted by the American Jewish Committee, an advocacy group for Jews in the United States, found that worries about anti-Semitism’s rise in recent years was consistently high among all Jewish denominations, including the ultra-Orthodox, modern Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform. Twenty-five percent of Americans Jews said they sometimes “avoid certain places, events, or situations” out of safety concerns, and over 30% said they have refrained from “wearing, carrying, or displaying things that might help people identify them as Jews.” And while one-third said Jewish institutions with which they are affiliated have suffered anti-Semitic attacks or threats, few victims of anti-Semitic incidents report them to the police. As for ascribing blame, American Jews say the Republican Party is more responsible than the Democratic Party for the current state of anti-Semitism in the U.S., and over 70% disapproved of President Trump’s handling of anti-Semitism. Over 80% of respondents said the extreme political Right and, separately, extremism in the name of Islam threaten American Jews, while 64% said the same of the extreme political Left. Another interesting finding from the survey is that American Jews are also more inclined to see negative remarks or actions against Israel as being anti-Semitic. A whopping 84 percent believed the statement “Israel has no right to…
