When Coloradans voted in November of 2012 to fully legalize marijuana, they did so with the intent of using the tax money made from it to make our schools better for kids. K-12 education receives the money from an excise tax applied to all recreational marijuana sales.
According to KOAA, the local news outlet for Colorado Springs, tax collections have reached nearly $14 million in the first 5 months of 2015. The 2015 total of $13.7 million beats out last year, which came in at $13.3 million by m [...]
Dees IllustrationBy Catherine J. FrompovichAre readers aware that what most consumers revere, and totally believe without a doubt as ‘science based’, actually is the third verifiable cause of death, especially in the USA? After coming to a similar association or conclusion many years ago, I’ve given it a new disease classification: the “white coat syndrome,” which, I contend, refers to the inefficiencies and prostituted sciences of allopathic medicine, Big Pharma, their acolytes and t [...]
By Joshua KrauseMany of us often wonder how our system of government became so dysfunctional. Theories abound as to why, but one thing is certain: No matter what we do, it rarely seems like the government is listening to us. If anything, when they do pass or repeal a law that the vast majority of the voting public wants them to pass or repeal, it seems like they only do it when it happens to coincide with their interests (or the interests of their financiers).The truth of the matter is th [...]

FrompovichActivist PostSoon, we and the media will be inundated by the 2016 presidential candidates’ self-proclaimed bravados, plus spinmeisters hawking about why candidates should be considered as the next President of the United States of America. Well, Hillary Rodham Clinton, as an attorney who, therefore, cannot plead ignorance of the law, has broken one specific law of the United States that, probably, should have her fined and/or in jail—or both!

Justice John F. Molloy was an attorney in Arizona who went on to serve as a judge on the Arizona Superior Court bench. He is probably best known for his time serving as Chief Justice to Court of Appeals for the State of Arizona, where he authored the famous Miranda decision that was subsequently appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court and overturned, resulting in what is known today as the “Miranda Rights” which law enforcement now quotes to suspected [...]

In a win for farmers, deliciousness, and just plain common sense, Wyoming’s governor signed a bill this past week which will “stop overregulation of locally produced foods” by making it illegal for the state government to require “licensure, permitting, certification, inspection, packaging, or labeling” when farmers sell food directly to consumers.

The Parliament’s environment committee vote was to amend a previously agreed [...]
