Chris Christie Promises To Prosecute You For Marijuana If He’s Elected President

Last month, New Jersey governor Chris Christie promised that if he was elected president, he would go after states that allowed the sale and use of recreational marijuana.

Texas Tea Party Lawmaker Wants To Legalize Pot Because Of God (UPDATE)

It’s not every day that you’re going to hear me praise Republicans for anything. Lately, there’s been an absolute flurry of bills filed at the state and federal levels by GOP lawmakers that would take us backwards, not forward.

Nancy Grace Makes an Absolute Fool Out of Herself During Ridiculous Anti-Marijuana Tirade (Video)

I have absolutely no idea why Nancy Grace has her own show. I’ve literally never met a single person who claims to follow her in any sort of serious way, and I can’t imagine who would view this woman as a credible source on much of anything. She’s just awful. And while I wouldn’t call myself […]

Republican Congressman Makes Unbelievably Absurd Statements About Marijuana Legalization

Every once in a while I come across a story where I’m not even sure how to describe the stupidity that I just came across.

Rapper 2 Chainz Humiliates Nancy Grace During Debate Over Marijuana Legalization (Video)

Normally I can’t stomach watching anything related to Nancy Grace. She’s just – awful.

That’s what happened when she brought on Tauheed Epps, otherwise known as rapper 2 Chainz, for a debate on whether or not marijuana […]

Annapolis Police Chief Pathetically Cites “37 Deaths” Hoax While Testifying Against Marijuana Legalization

Most days the news I read is utterly depressing.  Being a writer – especially in politics – you spend most of your time dealing with some of the uglier sides of society.  And while I love what I do, I will admit that reading as much news as I read sometimes leaves you with the […]

President Obama Opens Up About Marijuana Legalization, Says All the Right Things

Some might call it playing politics while others might call it an evolution on an idea, but President Obama’s recent comments about marijuana legalization were a clear step toward accepting legalization. And while I’m sure many marijuana advocates will say his comments weren’t enough, I personally thought everything he said was spot-on. President Obama said, […]

Nancy Grace Claims Marijuana Users Shoot Each Other, Stab Each Other and Kill Whole Families

Growing up people told me I should have been a lawyer, but I could never bring myself to choose that career path.  While not all lawyers are bad people (despite the stereotypes) often it seems to be a successful trial lawyer you really have to kind of sell your soul to do it.  Which is […]
