DEA Approves Synthetic Marijuana For Company That Spent $500k To Keep Weed Illegal

Lobbying in the nation’s capitol is a billion dollar industry, but sometimes, companies dip their toes into state and local politics, as well. When giant corporations want to influence bills and national elections, they generally spread their money around, cozying up to a number of politicians and shaking hands with numerous government officials. However, at the local level, high-dollar financing is a bit more transparent.

The Senate Just Legalized The Sale Of Your Browsing History

Despite widespread disapproval from constituents, S.J.Res 34 has passed the United States Senate with a vote of 50-48, with two absent votes. Earlier, at 12:25 Eastern March 23, 2017, the US Senate voted on S.J.Res 34, and will use the Congressional Review Act to strip away broadband privacy protections that kept Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and telecoms from selling your internet history and app data usage to third parties.

EMS Teams Compete Against Each Other In National Shooting Contests

Two years ago, I warned everyone that Paramedics and EMS teams were training for urban warfare and people claimed, I had no clue what I was talking about. I wish they were right, but as you’ll see things are only getting worse. For two years now, paramedics nationwide have been competing in marksmanship contests!

CORPORATE FASCISM: The Destruction Of America’s Middle Class

A new kind of fascism has taken over America: the merger of corporations and government whereby corporate power dominates. With the emergence of ever-larger multinational corporations — due to consolidation facilitated by the Federal Reserve’s endless FIAT money — the corporatocracy has been in a position to literally purchase the U.S. Congress.

A Potentially HUGE Mistake For The Trump DOJ: Sessions Wants To Bring Back Reagan-Era Drug Policies

We thought that a detente had been reached with AG Sessions on the pot issue. We thought we had all agreed that there are probably more important things for the Department of Justice on which to focus than on legal weed. Lord knows there are. It seems to us that marijuana is clearly a state issue per the Constitution. It would appear to fall solidly under the 10th Amendment. (As should any number of issues.) As a presumed fan of federalism and smaller government Mr. Sessions, state regulation of cannabis seems the lawful and morally correct choice.

Cell Phone Searches At Border Crossings Surge 1,100% In February Compared To 2015

The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States protects American citizens from “unreasonable searches and seizures” and requires “probable cause” to obtain a warrant for such searches. But there are two places where the Fourth Amendment doesn’t apply, even for U.S. citizens, and that’s at border crossings and airports. Now, according to an investigation by NBC News, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials are seriously ramping up efforts to take advantage of that fact.

Alcohol Industry Frantically Lobbies Against Legal Cannabis As Beer Sales Predict $2 Billion Drop

Some new cannabis statistics are undoubtedly causing the alcohol industry in the US to shake in their boots. With over half of the country’s states embracing some form of legalized marijuana, with a few states even permitting recreational use, cannabis is poised to affect the alcohol industry at some point. And according to a new study, the beer industry stands to lose billions if marijuana is legalized nationwide.
