MN Lawmakers: Legalize Pot For Recreational Use -Full News Conference

YouTube ~ Michael McIntee

Published on Feb 10, 2017

Minnesota has legalized some forms of medical marijuana. But now there’s a move to legalize it for recreational use as well. Several DFL lawmakers are proposing a law to do that. They’re also proposing a state constitutional amendment to make pot legal. Speakers include Bill authors Rep. Jason Metsa (DFL – Virginia) and Rep. Tina Liebling (DFL – Rochester) .

The bill is opposed by at least one key Republican— the GOP controls the legislature — and Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton opposes it.

If the legislature passes the constitutional amendment, it will go directly to the voters with or without Dayton’s signature.

Applebaum says realizes the bill isn’t likely to pass this session, but says it is a conversation starter about something that eventually has to change.

Published on Sep 30, 2014

A current proposal from a board in Colorado’s second largest school district reads, ”
Materials should promote citizenship, patriotism, essentials and benefits of the free enterprise system, respect for authority and respect for individual rights.” It goes on to say that “material condoning civil disorder, social strife or disregard for the law should be removed from the history classroom.” Students and teachers are now protesting while the board calls the whole thing a misunderstanding.

4th grader sells pot in northern Colorado

GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — School officials in northern Colorado are asking parents to take care with their newly legal recreational marijuana, after fourth graders were caught dealing the drug on an elementary school campus.

John Gates, director of safety for Weld County School District 6, said Wednesday that the students involved, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Greeley’s Monfort Elementary School, faced tough discipline but not suspension or expulsion. He would not elaborate on their punishment.

Colorado Rockies Baseball Team To Sell Marijuana Brownies At Their Concession Stands

From: empiresports.co

With the new laws in effect in Colorado, major sports organizations are looking for ways to cash in on the newest legal cash crop in the state.

Sources are reporting that Major League Baseball’s Colorado Rockies plan to sell food items which contain marijuana at concession stands during games next season.

The first item on the list?  Pot Brownies.

An inside source with the organization said that it appears that the strain of marijuana that will be used in the making of the marijuana brownies will be Durango Bango which is considered to be the very best weed in the Rocky Mountain State.

Editor’s Note: I am not a fan of professional sports, not since Larry Bird was playing anyway. Nor am I a fan of municipalities taxing citizens to build sports stadiums. However, if I recall my ancient history, Rome debated the sale or distribution of inebriating substances at the gladiatorial games in order to appease overtaxed Roman citizens. Rome still fell apart and it nothing at all to do with the citizens being too stoned to function, rather, the leaders were too greedy to be good managers of public resources.

If a beer is eight or ten bucks at the ballpark, how much will pot brownies cost?

Obama: Pot is not more dangerous than alcohol

Obama: Pot is not more dangerous than alcohol

Posted: Jan 19, 2014 3:36 PMUpdated: Jan 19, 2014 7:36 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama said he doesn’t think marijuana is more dangerous than alcohol, “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” the president said an interview with “The New Yorker” magazine. READ MORE

Smoking marijuana is “not something I encourage, and I’ve told my daughters I think it’s a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy,” Obama said.
