Congress held discussions to sell the National Parks during the government shutdown through the Disposal of Excess Federal Lands Act, spearheaded by Jason Chaffetz (R-UT).
The sale would cover national parks in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, & Wyoming as a measure to “reduce the federal deficit.” We discuss the proposal on this Buzzsaw news clip with Tyrel Ventura and Tabetha Wallace.
The second annual Idaho H.O.P.E. Fest, Boise’s only hemp rally, is coming up on Sunday, September 30 at Ann Morrison Park. The gathering — to educate the public on the many uses of hemp — is designed to promote awareness on the reform of marijuana laws in a positive and polite atmosphere, according to organizers.
H.O.P.E. stands for Hemp Offers People Everything, and this year’s event has a number of goals:
• To collect signatures on Compassionate Idaho’s Citizens Initiative seeking to legalize medical marijuana for Idaho’s seriously ill patients
• To promote the re-legalization of industrial hemp
• To educate the public on the growing cannabis industry, a legitimate market providing jobs and economic growth to states that have legalized its medical use
• To push for public discussions on the reform of Idaho’s archaic and unjust cannabis laws. . . . Read Complete Report
