Medical Marijuana is Protected from the Department of Justice

The fight over legalizing marijuana has been long.  From the early days, marijuana used for medical treatment has been considered differently than that which is used recreationally.  As early as 1996, California approved marijuana for medical use, and, today there are 16 states total that have legalized the drug for medical use.  And now, nearly 20 years later, Colorado, Alaska, Oregon, and Washington have some sort of legalized marijuana for recreational use as well.

Greenpeace Attacks Barack Obama for Allowing Arctic Drilling

NPR Obamacare Success Story (Part One): It Isn’t One

Yesterday, NPR’s Morning Edition ran “a success story” about Obamacare: “Persistance Pays Off For Uninsured Alaskan.” It features Lara Imler, hair stylest and ex-accountant. At the very end you are quickly informed that “success” story doesn’t include a verified success: Imler is still waiting for enrollment confirmation from her new insurance company.
