Last week Bill O’Reilly and HotAir Editor-at-Large Mary Katharine Ham fought over pot legalization, and Ham returned Monday night for round two. The big issue this time was O’Reilly’s insistence on focusing on how children are affected by legalizing pot, resulting in another shouting match…

Congress is taking steps to undo the District of Columbia’s widely supported referendum legalizing marijuana for recreational use. Buried within the “cromnibus” bill passed by the House last Thursday is a measure blocking the implementation of the new pot regulations, which was approved by nearly 70 percent of DC voters in November. RT’s Manila Chan has more details.

Marijuana is growing up. As Colorado and Washington’s recreational marijuana industries blossom and new markets in Oregon and Alaska begin to take shape, so-called ganjapreneurs are looking for ways to take cannabis mainstream. Before long, they hope, marijuana products will be as widely available as alcohol — and just as socially acceptable.

“Ideally, I would like to see the 21-to-35 year-old taking a four-pack of these to a barbecue,” Joe Hodas, chief marketing director for the marijuana product manufacturer Dixie, said earlier this year of the company’s new watermelon cream-flavored “elixir,” Dixie One. The drink contains five milligrams of THC — just enough to produce a subtle buzz. . . . Read Complete Report

THEI EXCLUSIVE Investigation: Sheldon Adelson: why is he so interested in Florida pot regulations?

THEI Exclusive Investigation:

Sheldon Adelson Investigation Part 1

Compiled by Dennis Crenshaw

I had never heard of Sheldon Adelson until the elections of 2014. Then I read an article from the Washington Post [Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson is behind 85 percent of Florida’s anti-pot campaign].

From the Washington Post Report

The single largest contributor on either side of the fight over Amendment 2, which grants patients with “debilitating diseases” access to medical marijuana, is billionaire casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, who, new campaign finance filings show, added $1 million to the $4 million he’s already spent in support of the campaign to defeat the measure.

My first thought was that it was a shame that a person with that much obviously going for him would be so uneducated on the subject of marijuana that he would spend so much money to deny treatment of so many people, especially children, of the only medicine that works. Marijuana.  I just excused it with the thought, He is ignorant when it comes to the subject.

And on Wikipedia I found this to be true.

“Adelson who lost a son, Mitchell, to a drug overdose.[36] Mitchell was said to have used cocaine and heroin from an early age.[37] Adelson believes that cannabis is a gateway drug.[38]

He still believes the old unproven statement by the propagandist “Marijuana is a Gateway Drug.” I’m sorry about his son but to blame his death on marijuana is ludicrous. But I can see why, believing false information, he would naturally use some of his fortune to contribute in efforts to stop the move towards legalization across America.

But with that said, surprisingly, I also found out that, while he contributed 85% of the anti-medical marijuana (5 mil) money in Florida he did not spend one dime in the other states with had marijuana measures on the ballot,  Including 3 states for complete legalization.

It seems to me that if the 10th richest man in the united States was donating money because he was a fanatic AGAINST pot laws he would have spent money in these States also. But no, he sunk millions into Florida and not a penny anywhere else in the country where pot legislation was on the ballot. You have to ask yourself, why??

I decided I needed to do a little research to understand why a gambler from Vegas would care so much about the pot laws of Florida yet care nothing about the prohibition laws being overthrown in other States. That seems to me to indicate that the millionaire casino owners main interest is not financing the protection of pot laws across the country. He must have another agenda.

After all 57% of the Florida Voters that voted were for this bill. It isn’t over.  It just means we need to educate 3% more voters to the needs of these extremely sick people before the another election and it’s done. Or the next.  It’s inevitable. Adelson must have realized that. He’s no dummy. People with his savvy don’t spend money without expecting something in return.

So. The question is, “Why did a Vegas casino owner spend 5 million dollars to influence Florida voters in regards to medical marijuana laws and ignore all of the other pot reform laws in the country?”

Maybe it is just his way of fighting the “Killer Weed” – and maybe it’s something else. . . THEI is going to find out and continue to pass the facts along to you in this THEI exclusive series.

Meet the ‘public’  Sheldon Adelson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Sheldon Gary Adelson (pronounced /ˈædəlsən/; born August 4, 1933) is an American business magnate, investor, and philanthropist. He is the chairman and chief executive Sands_Casino_Sign A Las Vegas photographer  Life time1996 - Original publication The early 50s Public Domainofficer of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, the parent company of Venetian Macao Limited which operates The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino and the Sands Expo and Convention Center. He also owns the Israeli daily newspaper Israel HaYom. Adelson, a lifelong donor and philanthropist to a variety of causes, founded with his wife’s initiative theAdelson Foundation.

 Continuing with information from Wikipedia;

“In 1988, Adelson and his partners purchased the Sands Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas”

“In 1991 . . .  He razed the Sands and spent $1.5 billion to construct The Venetian, a Venice-themed resort hotel and casino.”

“In August 2007, Adelson opened the $2.4-billion Venetian Macao Resort Hotel on Cotai and announced that he planned to create a massive, concentrated resort area he called the Cotai Strip, after its Las Vegas counterpart.”

“In the late 2000s, Adelson and the company decided to build a casino resort in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. It is one of five stand-alone casinos that were awarded a slots license by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in 2006.”

“Adelson spearheaded a major project to bring the Sands name to Macau, the Chinese gambling city . . . The one-million-square-foot Sands Macao became the People’s Republic of China‘s first Las Vegas-style casino when it opened in May 2004.”

“In May 2006, Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands was awarded a hotly contested license to construct a casino resort in Singapore’s Marina Bay. . . .”

It would seem to me that Adelson’s real motivating force is to control casino gambling world wide, not rid the world of “Killer Weed“. We shall see…

The surface area of the United States in which you can adequately and legally hold a proper Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz viewing party just got a lot bigger: Alaska, Oregon, and the District of Columbia voted Tuesday to legalize recreational marijuana. In Alaska and Oregon, residents passed referenda that will set up regulated cannabis retail similar to the systems that voters in Colorado and Washington state approved in 2012. And D.C. voters passed Initiative 71, whichlegalizes the growing and possession of small amounts of marijuana but does not permit its sale. Under all of those laws, users must be 21 or older to possess pot. . . . Read Complete Report
