HELL, YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE HIGH IN ORDER TO VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON …
Suddenly, Hillary Clinton is all for lessening the restrictions on pot as she spoke to a largely black audience in South Carolina yesterday. As I have previously stated, of course the LIBS are all for making reefer legal, its the only way anyone would vote for these people is being high.
Hillary Clinton proposed loosening restrictions on marijuana in South Carolina on Saturday, telling a largely African-American audience that she would like to reschedule the drug in order to spur research.
“What I do want is for us to support research into medical marijuana because a lot more states have passed medical marijuana than have legalized marijuana, so we have got two different experiences or even experiments going on right now,” Clinton said. “The problem with medical marijuana is there is a lot of anecdotal evidence about how well it works for certain conditions. But we haven’t done any research. Why? Because it is considered that is called a schedule one drug and you can’t even do research in it.”
She added, “I would like to move it from what is called Schedule 1 to Schedule 2 so that researchers at universities, national institutes of health can start researching what is the best way to use it, how much of a dose does somebody need, how does it interact with other medications.”
This is a new position for Clinton, who in the past has said she wanted to spur research but has never endorsed reclassifying the drug.
UP IN SMOKE … Legalize Marijuana for Both Medical & Recreational use in Ohio Fails Miserably 65% to 35%
UP IN SMOKE, IT TURNS OUT THAT OHIO IS NOT GOING TO POT AFTER ALL …
Imagine that, Ohio is not Colorado. The voters of Ohio decided to say JUST SAY NO to a the legalization of marijuana for both medical and recreational use by a resounding 65% to 35%. Although, many probably voted against this terrible measure not only because of pot legalization but also they way it was written giving a monopoly to certain individuals to grow it. C’mon man, the last thing some stoners are going to want is being forced to by some weed from some politically connected wealthy backers. Next thing you know these privileges state appointed drug kingpins would have the market on the Doritos and moon pies.
Looks like Cheech & Chong will have to toke elsewhere (warning – adult language)
Issue 3, the effort to legalize marijuana for both medical and recreational use in Ohio, failed to create a buzz with voters Tuesday.
The legislation was rejected soundly, failing by a margin of 65 to 35 percent with 77 percent of precincts counted late Tuesday night.
Ohio voters on Tuesday rejected a controversial marijuana legalization measure at the polls in that state. Recent surveys showed support in Ohio for marijuana legalization, but voters balked at the specifics of the ballot initiative, which would have created an oligopoly on marijuana production for a small handful of the initiative’s wealthy donors.
The initiative faced an uphill battle from the start. The first stumbling block was the nature of the ballot measure itself. It would have essentially written a marijuana oligopoly into the state’s constitution, with the measure’s wealthy backers as the only recipients of licenses to grow marijuana commercially. That didn’t sit right with many of the national advocacy groups that have backed successful legalization measures in other states.
BIZARRE MURDER IN NYC …
The grand daughter of Oscar award winning actor Morgan Freeman was murdered in New York City early Sunday morning. 33 year old E’Dena Hines was stabbed to death on the Manhattan sidewalks by her ranting and crazed boyfriend. Reports state Hines was stabbed 16 times.According to accounts, Hines’ 30 year old live-in boyfriend, Lamar Davenport, was in a drug-induced psychosis when he continuously stabbed her ranting, “Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” She was transported to Harlem Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The granddaughter of acclaimed actor Morgan Freeman was stabbed to death on a Manhattan sidewalk early Sunday during what law-enforcement sources and witnesses described as an “exorcism” at the hands of her ranting boyfriend.
“Get out, devils! I cast you out, devils! In the name of Jesus Christ, I cast you out!” the killer yelled as he plunged a hunting knife into 33-year-old E’Dena Hines’ chest, according to George Hudacko, who witnessed the 3 a.m. attack from his apartment window in Washington Heights.
Hines, an actress who had appeared on Broadway and on red carpets at Freeman’s side, was stabbed 16 times, officials said.
“The girl was making a lot of noise, screaming,” Hudacko said, adding. “I called 911 — I was begging them to come.”
Davenport — an actor and rapper wannabe whose nickname is “Lyric” — abuses cocaine, pot and booze, and has two young children, according to law-enforcement sources. Hines was not their mother
He has six prior arrests, including for marijuana and petty larceny, the sources added.
“The world will never know her artistry, and how much she had to offer”.
“Her friends and family were fortunate enough to have known what she meant as a person,” he said. “Her star will continue to shine bright in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.”
Where are all the race hustlers … Black lives matter, right?

AC/DC Drummer Phil Rudd Arrested in New Zealand for Attempting to Arrange a Murder, Threatening to Murder and Drug Possession (Update: Tauranga Crown Solicitor Withdraws Attempt to Procure Murder Charge)
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap …
60 year old Phil Rudd, the longtime drummer of AC/DC, has been arrested in New Zealand for allegedly trying to have two men killed and charged with attempting to “procure” a murder. Rudd was also charged with possession of methamphetamine and cannabis and threatening to kill. According to the charges by police, Rudd had tried to get two men killed, their names and that of the intended hitman were all suppressed by the judge. Rudd has yet to enter a plea and is due back in court again on November 27.
AC/DC – Guns For Hire
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd was arrested in New Zealand on Thursday morning local time and charged with attempting to procure a murder, as first reported by Stuff.co.nz. A member of the Tauranga Central division of New Zealand Police confirmed Rudd’s arrest to Rolling Stone, but did not provide any additional details. According to Stuff, Rudd allegedly tried to have two as-yet-unidentified men killed and was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of cannabis and threatening to kill.
The longtime drummer appeared in Tauranga District Court on Thursday afternoon local time and was released on bail. He is due back for his next hearing on November 27th and faces up to 10 years in prison on the murder-for-hire charge if convicted. New Zealand police have yet to reveal any details behind Rudd’s arrest or who were the intended victims. According to New Zealand news outlet The Sun, Rudd was “accused of procuring murder” between September 25th and 26th.
The drug charges pertain to a raid on the 60-year-old drummer’s house conducted by police on Thursday.
AC/DC are due to release a new album later this year.
A statement on the band’s website said: “We’ve only become aware of Phil’s arrest as the news was breaking. We have no further comment.
“Phil’s absence will not affect the release of our new album Rock or Bust and upcoming tour next year.”
A New Zealand crown solicitor withdrew the most serious charge against AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd on Thursday, dropping the attempting to procure murder charge in an alleged murder plot involving “working girls.”
A disheveled Rudd, 60, appeared “thunderstruck” in Tauranga District Court on Wednesday, hours after his waterfront mansion was raided by police and faced several charges, including threatening to kill as well as possession of methamphetamine and cannabis.
Paul Mabey, Rudd’s attorney, said in a statement that an overzealous New Zealand police investigation pushed their case without consulting Tauranga Crown Solicitor Greg Hollister-Jones, who agreed Thursday to strike the attempting to procure murder charge.
“The charge alleging an Attempt to Procure Murder should never have been laid,” Mabey said. “The Crown Solicitors opinion was not sought. The charge is now withdrawn — within 24 hours of Mr. Rudd’s first appearance in court.”
