Oklahoma legalizes medical marijuana

Published

on

Red-state Oklahoma has joined the list of states that voted to legalize medical marijuana.

Despite an exhaustive effort by the opposition claiming it would lead to teens in dorm rooms growing 12 plants to sell, the conservative state voted to allow those with illnesses to smoke their weed in peace.

With 74 percent reporting, 56 percent of Oklahomans voted to legalize to 44 percent who voted against, according to News9 election returns.

“Almost all of us know someone who is suffering from cancer, PTSD, seizures, or one of the dozens of medical conditions and illnesses that medical cannabis is proven to be effective in treating,” said Bud Scott, the Executive Director of New Health Solutions Oklahoma, Inc.. “This vote was a victory for them. I am proud and honored to have worked alongside thousands of Oklahomans who pushed for this change.”

“The will of the people is clear: they want Oklahomans to have access to this medical product,” Scott also said. “For that to happen, we need an orderly and fairly regulated marketplace with responsible rules and regulations consistent with the spirit of SQ 788. The medical cannabis industry is ready to work together with lawmakers, regulatory agencies, and the medical community at-large to develop those rules and regulations in a timely manner.”

The truth about Bernie Sanders’ medical records: They’re encouraging — but a key detail is missing

When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) landed in the hospital at the beginning of October 2019 after suffering a heart attack, it became guaranteed that his health would be an issue in the 2020 Democratic primary. The 78-year-old is known for his passionate rallies and reveling in the rigors of the campaign, but a candidate's health condition can change the course of an election, and a serious medical crisis like a heart attack puts into question his ability to do the job.

To help allay these concerns, Sanders assured voters that he would release "comprehensive" medical records. But he hasn't, and now it seems he doesn't plan on doing it. Instead, he released three letters in December from doctors describing his health positively and vouching for his ability to handle the campaign trail and potentially, the presidency.

How the question of who killed JFK emerged in an unexpected way on the 2020 campaign trail

Published

on

On Monday night in Fairfax, Virginia, Donald Jeffries, author and talk radio host, asked Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard about a book she was seen carrying, “JFK and the Unspeakable.” Published in 2008, the book is a Catholic philosopher’s meditation about the assassination of liberal president John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, one of the great historical crimes of American politics.

Gabbard replied she had not finished the book, but “from what I have read, it… speaks to what happened [on November 22] in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.”

Published

President Donald Trump goaded his audience into booing a teenager during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Trump said, "I got beaten up by Greta" -- in reference to Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who recently celebrated her 17th birthday.

The leader of the free world went on to complain about Thunberg being declared TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" award in 2019.

He said that many women wish it was still "Man of the Year" and suggested separate categories by gender, which would prevent him from competing against European teenage girls.
