It Will Be Awesome if They Don’t Screw it Up: 3D Printing
By Michael Weinburg
The next great technological disruption is brewing just out of sight. In small workshops, and faceless office parks, and garages, and basements, revolutionaries are tinkering with machines that can turn digital bits into physical atoms. The machines can download plans for a wrench from the Internet and print out a real, working wrench. Users design their own jewelry, gears, brackets, and toys with a computer program, and use their machines to create real jewelry, gears, brackets, and toys.
These machines, generically known as 3D printers, are not imported from the future or the stuff of science fiction. Home versions, imperfect but real, can be had for around $1,000. Every day they get better, and move closer to the mainstream. . . . Read Complete Report
It’s true: theories spread on both sides of the gun control debate — those who want to restrict gun ownership and those who feel ownership is threatened. Some believe that mass shootings are engineered to sway support for gun laws, while others believe manufacturers lobby to keep guns accessible despite the dangers their products may pose. Join Matt and Ben in this Stuff They Don’t Want You To Know video as they take a closer look at the contradicting theories, and stay tuned for more information in their Friday episode.

Prohibition of alcohol was finally overturned, not by the FEDS making it legal, but by legalizing alcohol state by state, thereby ignoring the 18th Amendment.
First the State of New York legalized it while it was still illegal under Federal law. Then other states started to legalize until it reached the point that the FEDs didn’t have enough officers to enforce the law. Then, and only then, did the FEDS join in by passing The 21st Amendment which repealed the 18th Amendment,the prohibition of alcohol. Amendment 21 repeals Amendment 18. This is the same plan being used for the legalization of marijuana. Looks like we’re on the right track. Smoke um if you got um!!!. . . EDITOR

Los Angeles (CNN) — Pro-pot groups cheered passage of referendums legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado and Washington state as the “light at the end of the tunnel” in their 50-year campaign to make the drug legal nationwide.
“Yesterday’s elections have forever changed the playing field regarding cannabis prohibition laws in America (and probably in large parts of the world too),” Allen St. Pierre, executive director of NORML — the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws — wrote in a celebratory blog Wednesday.
But Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper warned it’s too soon to “break out the Cheetos” since his state must still navigate federal laws before citizens can legally buy and sell cannabis. . . . Read Complete Report

The citizens of Colorado, Washington and Massachusetts delivered game changing victories last night for the nearly fifty year-old cannabis law reform Movement. Massachusetts becomes the eighteenth state to pass legal protections for qualified medical patients who’ve cannabis recommended to them by a physician. Colorado and Washington become the first places in the world, ever, where citizens have cast votes to reject cannabis prohibition, and replace the failed public policy with alternatives like tax-n-regulate models (similar to the control and taxation models widely accepted for alcohol and tobacco product use by adults). . . .
