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

Washington yogis and gym-goers are paying extra to be healthy due to a new tax on fitness related businesses. Memberships at gyms, yoga studios, pools and other facilities now include a 5.75 percent tax, raising already high costs in one of the country’s most expensive cities.

Ah, for the  the good old days. . . EDITOR

With Congress gridlocked and non-essential federal groundskeepers furloughed, one man has stepped forward to ensure the manicured hedges and lawns of the nation’s capital remain pristine in advance of this weekend’s Million Vet March, a protest of veterans demanding their memorials remain open.

Chris Cox, 45, has never served in the U.S. military, but his respect and appreciation for our nation’s veterans has inspired him give back. “You don’t have to be a veteran to have a love of country,” Cox explained in an exclusive interview with TheBlaze Wednesday evening. To that end, he turned a trip to a D.C. art convention into an opportunity to give back. “Everyone serves in a different way. I’ll just cut a little bit of grass.”

Armed with a leaf-blower, a lawnmower and the South Carolina state flag, Cox is on a one-man mission this week to clean up the National Mall and have it ready to welcome the veterans.  It’s not about politics, “it’s just the right thing to do,” he says. . . . Read Complete Report

AP Published Story Day Before Navy Yard Shootings! (Debunked)

Published on Sep 17, 2013

Did the Associated Press accidentially publish intricate details of the Navy Yard shooting the day before it happened, therefore proving some kind of conspiracy? No, it was a time stamp error.

These kind of disinfo rabbit holes only serve to distract us from the real issues, such as SSRI drugs, video games and the gun control debate.

Washington DC is considered to be the symbol of American power and freedom. However as the saying goes – the District has a long history of taxation without representation. DC residents have no members representing them in either the House or the Senate and yet they pay their taxes like everyone else and in many cases much higher taxes. RT’s Liz Wahl looks at how this works and how the people feel about it
