Rio de Janeiro to Get Pro-Legalization Mayor?
Last week, left-wing populist candidate Marcelo Freixo made it past the first round in the race for mayor of Rio de Janeiro and now goes on to face an ultra-conservative rival in a run-off at the end of the month.
In recent days, drug legalization has emerged as a key issue in the race. Freixo, of the Socialism and Freedom Party (POSL), is currently chair of the Human Rights Defense Commission of Rio de Janiero state’s Legislative Assembly. He is now running against evangelical senator Marcelo Crivella of the Brazilian Republican Party (PRB). But another right-wing contender bounced out in the first round, Flávio Bolsonaro of the Social Christian Party (PSC), has thrown his support to Crivella and is attempting to use the drug stigma against Freixo, exploiting his call for legalization as a means to de-escalate Rio’s violent gang wars.
Platinum Bubba Kush (Indica)
An indica-dominant hybrid with an exceptional parentage of Platinum Kush and the renowned California strain Bubba Kush, the buds of Platinum Bubba Kush are populated with a metropolis of trichromes, whose potency should not be taken lightly. Suitable for indoor as well as outdoor cultivation, Platinum Bubba Kush will flower for between 8 and 9 weeks, producing large, chunky buds that reek of dank, Kush and skunk. She tends to finish at an average indoor height of 4 feet, and is a great choice for beginning gardeners, due to her natural resistance to diseases and pests, as well as her lush and hardy growth tendencies.

The DEA Spent an Obscene Amount of Money to Eradicate ZERO Pot Plants in Utah
To underscore the absurd amount of money the DEA spends annually on eradicating pot plants, the Washington Postlooked at a series of federal documents that revealed what can only be described as an obscene waste of taxpayers’ money.
The documents, obtained by journalist Drew Atkins through the Freedom of Information Act, showed for example that Utah received $73,000 for marijuana eradication. For that hefty sum, DEA agents did not find a single pot plant.
In New Hampshire, where the DEA received $20,000, they pulled up a grand total of 27 plants in a single outdoor grow site. According to their own Cannabis Eradication Report—a blatant admission of misspending and a must-read during this election year—that comes to $740.74 for each uprooted plant.
