As the investigation into the shooting deaths of eight members of a Pike County, Ohio, family extends into day No. 4, more questions are emerging about the family, who committed these crimes and what’s next for the three young children who were spared in these killings.

What Colorado's Legal Cannabis Legalization Has Enlightened Us About
When the Canadian Parliament considered decriminalizing marijuana possession in 2003, U.S. officials loudly objected . They complained that the proposed reform would betray the anti-drug cause, worried that it would encourage drug tourism and facilitate marijuana smuggling, and threatened to respond with a border crackdown that would impede trade and travel between the two countries.

Corporations Who Paid Big for Clinton Speeches Actively Seek to Sway US Government
WASHINGTON - It's not just Wall Street banks. Most companies and groups that paid Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to speak between 2013 and 2015 have lobbied federal agencies in recent years, and more than one-third are government contractors, an Associated Press review has found. Their interests are sprawling and would follow Clinton to the White House should she win election this fall.

The AP's review of federal records, regulatory filings and correspondence showed that almost all the 82 corporations, trade associations and other groups that paid for or sponsored Clinton's speeches have actively sought to sway the government - lobbying, bidding for contracts, commenting on federal policy and in some cases contacting State Department officials or Clinton herself during her tenure as secretary of state.

Presidents are not generally bound by many of the ethics and... [Read More]

Illinois Decriminalizes Marijuana
The Illinois Senate voted on Tuesday to decriminalize the possession of up to 10 grams of marijuana. The proposed bill would replace criminal penalties for possession of 10 grams or less with a fine and a citation.

Over 100 places in Illinois have decriminalized marijuana, which would be extended to the entire state if this bill passes in the House of Representatives. Twenty other states have decriminalized marijuana possession to some extent.

Senate Bill 2228 would change current criminal penalties, including possible jail time, with a citation and fine for possession of up to ten grams of marijuana in Illinois. As long as the sentence is carried out, the civil violation records would eventually be expunged.
