Although 2012 wasn’t the most victorious year for marijuana, there are already some promising signs for possible legislative victory in 2013.
The Federal government isn’t too fond of the idea…but several marijuana reform bills have already been introduced in the state legislatures. Whether they stand a decent chance or not, they will at least significantly advance the issue of reform.
With Colorado and Washington State moving fast towards full legalization, we can only expect other states and politicians to follow suit.
Without further ado, here are eight potential marijuana reforms in 2013 that might just happen!
Six days ago, state-run Chinese news agency Xinhua released a Human Rights Record of the United States for the year 2013. The record is supposed to have come from the State Council Information Office of the People’s Republic of China, the latter of which owns Xinhua. We haven’t investigated the report’s legitimacy or scrupulously sought [...]
President Barack Obama visited Powell Elementary School in Washington, DC on Tuesday, where he announced his 2015 budget proposal. The choice of venue was strategic, providing a platform for the president to implicitly and explicitly contextualize his government funding initiatives as catering specifically to America’s youth. “The budget is not just about numbers, it’s about [...]
Crimean lawmakers voted Thursday to hold a citizen referendum in ten days to decide whether to secede from Ukraine in favor of joining the Russian Federation, further complicating the West’s attempts to negotiate a withdrawal of Russian troops from the Black Sea peninsula. The largely self-governed and autonomous region is comprised primarily of ethnically Russian [...]
An Alabama Democratic lawmaker targeted the racial barriers dividing a major issue on Tuesday by claiming that his Republican colleagues would change their minds about abortion “if their daughter got pregnant by a black man.” According to the Huffington Post, the argument began when Rep.

Minnesota Republican Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann believes that the Jewish community “sold out” by voting for Barack Obama, whose policies will eventually turn into Israel into “rubble.” According to Right Wing Watch, Bachmann was speaking with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins about Obama’s recent success lobbying Congress to hold off on additional sanctions for Iran, [...]
Russian President Vladimir Putin has once again been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, an abominable hilarity considering he recently permitted troops to invade a struggling country that poses no threat to Russia’s safety. A record number of nominees will be voted upon for this year’s prize, Voice of Russia reports, including 278 politicians, public [...]
You might only think of the name Martha Stewart in the kitchen, or sometimes jail, but what about in the bedroom? That’s right, the baking queen gave a Reddit AMA where she offered up some pretty dope sex advice. However, that’s not all we took away from this amazing AMA. The 72-year-old also has a [...]
I’ve never been into the cardio side of exercise. Treadmills are just a quantifiable measure of my inability to run a nine-minute mile, and with all the huffing and puffing and feeling like I’m about to die, it’s just never been my thing. I was searching for a more pleasurable alternative to the gym-rat laboratories [...]
The world will never forget Charles Barkley. He has stayed relevant in the modern NBA by just doing him, being the most consistently funny commentator on television, who is always willing to speak his mind.

Remember that unforgettable scene in the third “Mighty Ducks” movie when the team finds out that their new prick of a coach is actually a loving father who regularly takes his disabled daughter on the ice to dance with him?

You know exactly what I’m talking about.
