California Attorney General: I Once Smoked Marijuana
Look, we get it. It’s hard to talk about drugs. It’s hard even for top law enforcement officials, like California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who would prefer to talk about his underwear rather than whether or not he ever smoked weed.
But once he’s informed the world that he wears boxers—sure, he’ll let you know that once upon a time, many, many years ago, he “tried” marijuana.
Becerra, 59, spent nearly 24 years representing downtown Los Angeles in Congress. Since December, he’s served as attorney general after his predecessor Kamala Harris was sworn in as a U.S. Senator. He was in San Francisco on Wednesday night for a POLITICO event to talk about life under Trump (as was U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House Majority Leader and, by extension, California’s chief Trump regime collaborator).
Time Runs Out on Marijuana Reform Bills in Texas
A bill can be killed in a number of ways—obstruction, feet dragging, amendments, procedural snags or getting talked to death in a filibuster, to name a few.
In the case of Texas’ medical marijuana and decriminalization bills, even though they both had enough support to pass, they never even came up for a vote before time ran out last Thursday night at midnight.
A midnight deadline passed without the full House even taking up proposed House Bill 81 for consideration. The bill would have essentially decriminalized the possession of small amounts of marijuana, reducing penalties to below that of most traffic tickets.
Agent Orange (Hybrid)
The Agent Orange strain of marijuana is a three way cross between Space Queen, Jack's Cleaner and Orange Velvet Skunk that delivers its wonders within just 55 and 65 days when cultivated indoors. AO is a hybrid mix of Sativa and Indica the develops very heavy buds, coated with white crystals and blazing orange hairs. It smells like stinky cheese mixed with a bit of diesel fuel and various spices. The taste is likewise spicy, yet sweet and full. The buzz is trippy; mixing feelings of calming body stones with energetic mental lucidity.
Senator introduces bill to legalize marijuana in New Jersey
The political situations in countries where there are more than two viable political parties can be understandably difficult for American audiences to comprehend. Britain is a great example.
The Conservatives, the current party-in-charge, are indeed conservative, and they’re clear to the right of Labour, the leading opposition party. Easy enough.
But then there are the Liberal Democrats, a sort of center-left party—but absolutely more center than left—who have only the tiniest of presences in the House of Commons, with eight seats out of 650 (and yet more than 100 seats in the House of Lords). They’re not rabid nationalists who eat austerity for breakfast, nor are they socialists. They’re, well, sort of like establishment American Democrats. They’re boring—and lately, they don’t really win too much.
This now may change, thanks to cannabis.
