  • South Dakota Makes History In Surprising Outcome To Vote Over Legal Weed

    South Dakota has voted to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana. According to Business Insider, it's the first time a state has voted to legalize both types of access to cannabis at the same time. Medical marijuana cards will be issued to patients with debilitating, chronic conditions--subject to a healthcare provider's recommendation. Recreational cannabis sales will be taxed at 15%. The proceeds will be used to cover the program's costs and to fund public schools and the state's general fund. Residents of the highly conservative state will be allowed to possess up to 1 ounce of cannabis for recreational use.

  • Gov. Cuomo Will Legalize Marijuana

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo intends to move forward with marijuana legalization. Cuomo will push for it during the state's 2021 legislative session. Business Insider reports the governor announced his intentions in his daily press briefing on Wednesday. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought New York a $15 billion deficit. Legalizing marijuana is one way the state government intends to bring in additional tax revenue. "Too many people have been imprisoned, incarcerated, and punished. It's exaggerated the injustice of the justice system."

  • South Dakota Governor Refuses To Believe Dead People Didn't Vote In Pennsylvania

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem backed up on Sunday President Donald Trump's insistence the presidential election was stolen from him. Business Insider reports Noem said on ABC's 'This Week' that "illegal activities" may have aided President-elect Joe Biden at the ballot box. When faced with host George Stephanopolous's pushback, Noem was adamant that widespread fraud existed, despite having zero concrete evidence. The governor also insisted 'dead people voted in Pennsylvania,' repeating an internet rumour that has been debunked by The New York Times. But Stephanopoulos was equally unmoved, saying that the claims of voter fraud were unfounded. It starts with providing evidence. You still have not provided it.

  • The One Thing Dems And GOP Voters Agreed On In 2020? Legal Weed

    It's still unknown whether President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden will win the 2020 race for the US presidency. But according to Gizmodo, one clear winner has emerged in another fight: the drug legalization movement. In both red and blue cities and states, people voted to legalize or decriminalize cannabis, psilocybin mushrooms, and, in Oregon, all illicit drugs entirely. New Jersey, Arizona, South Dakota, and Montana all passed ballot measures to legalize cannabis for recreational use. Voting to legalize cannabis and other drugs appeared to have nothing to do with whether a state voted for Trump or Biden--or its governor's party. and GOP governors of Arizona and South Dakota discouraged residents from voting to legalize cannabis. It didn't work.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
