Sheriff In California Says
Coloradans Will Regret
Legalizing Marijuana

CBS Local [Denver, CO], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 2/13/2013 6:28:30 PM

MENDOCINO, Calif. – The sheriff of Mendocino, Calif. is warning Colorado about the dangers of legalizing marijuana. Sheriff Tom Allman says voters in Colorado will regret the decision to legalize marijuana because crime will also increase. Allman says he should know, because for the last 30 years, Mendocino County has been regarded as the marijuana capitol of the U.S. Scenic Mendocino County is nestled in an area called the Emerald Triangle, three Northern California counties which are considered a safe haven for marijuana growers. But Allman says marijuana has ruined the area’s charm.

I think many there, already do regret it! Watch the uproar if Denver opts out of the legalization. The hippies will take to the streets...

CO residents will lose even more brain cells from Mary Jane. Hey, that fits right in with Barry´s new education program. Dumb them down with Mary Jane while at the same time dumbing them down in school. Pretty soon everybody is dumb - just where Barry wants them as low or no information voters.

Nearly eight years after her son was killed in the crossfire of a Santa Monica gang´s violence, Armita Lopez found justice Thursday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. But not before her son´s killer seized one last opportunity to torment her. "I was waiting for this day because it was not fair that they killed my son," a tearful Lopez said of Jose Contreras Zapien Jr. and his fellow gang members. Zapien mocked her with a dismissive chuckle and smirk. The judge snapped at Zapien, telling him to "stop smiling." Minutes later, he sentenced the 25-year-old to life in prison

Christie Ladles Political Sauce

Politics: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie took responsibility for a politically motivated shutdown of a major bridge artery Thursday, as political heat boiled. What´s infuriating is how this kind of politics is becoming the norm. It was the sort of thing that infuriates voters: With little warning last Sept. 9, two lanes of the George Washington Bridge were shut down for four days for a supposed "traffic study" — forcing commuters on the world´s busiest bridge road to wait in traffic for up to four hours. The 276,000 vehicles that cross into New York from New Jersey each day had one

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuelans kill one another by the tens of thousands every year, making this South American nation one of the world’s most violent. But the slaying of former Miss Venezuela Mónica Spear at the hands of roadside bandits Monday night has shaken this country like no other recent crime. Beauty queens are as revered here as top athletes and movie stars, and the government of President Nicolás Maduro is scrambling to contain the public outrage. Disgusted Venezuelans berated the government on social media and in street protests Wednesday, while Maduro summoned the country’s governors and big-city mayors to an

The Border: Twenty years ago, Mexico threw open its doors to free trade, creating a big middle class on its border with the U.S. But now it´s chasing that same middle class into this country, thanks to a foolish tax hike. It was on the anniversary of the North American Free Trade Agreement, one of the country´s smartest moves, that Mexico has made one of the dumbest — one that can´t help but do the opposite of what NAFTA did and drive trade north. As part of the government´s economic package for 2014, Mexico´s legislature approved a measure to raise

A peacock that escaped from a suburban Chicago zoo Tuesday and had its feet frozen to a tree while spending 90 minutes in below-zero temperatures has died from the cold, zoo officials said. Blue, a male peacock that lived at the Randall Oaks Barnyard Zoo for at least five years, flew out of his heated pen and on top of a nearby pine tree Tuesday after he was fed and cleaned, according to Randall Oak’s park and division manager Brian Mangiaracina. Staff attempted to rescue the bird but ultimately called the West Dundee Fire Department, which brought in a 100-foot ladder for

Mónica Spear, a 29-year-old former Miss Venezuela who used to live in Orlando, was gunned down along with her ex-husband while vacationing in the South American nation, authorities said on Tuesday. Spear, who graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2004 with a bachelor of arts degree in theater, was also a soap-opera actress.

Republicans Really Could

Another midterm election beckons, and over the next 10 months we’ll see headlines about a thousand supposedly critical developments—the “game changers” and the “tipping points.” But we all know there aren’t a thousand powerful drivers of the vote. I’d argue that three factors are paramount: the president, the economy and the election playing field. And, at least preliminarily, those three factors seem to be pointing toward Republican gains in both houses in the 2014 midterms. Why? 1. The president. His job approval numbers are perhaps the best indicator of the public’s overall political orientation at any given time, a kind of summary

In a long statement recalling the 181st anniversary of the ´usurpation of our Malvinas, South Georgia, South Sandwich Islands and the adjoining maritime spaces´ (almost three million square kilometers) the Argentine Foreign ministry contrasts Buenos Aires peaceful, dialogue attitude with the verbal aggressiveness from British officials when referring to the Malvinas issue. The release accuses the UK of ignoring UN resolutions, International Law and growing world public opinion favorable to Argentina and sovereignty negotiations, which is the best evidence that in the Malvinas issue, “the lion still roars but no longer frightens”.

LA PAZ – Bolivia will have a nuclear power industry in the near future, President Evo Morales said Wednesday during a military ceremony in the central region of Cochabamba. “I want to tell you, we are not far ... from having atomic energy because we have sufficient prime material and we have the right,” the head of state said. Bolivia has uranium deposits, though they have yet to be quantified or thoroughly evaluated. Morales said in late October that Bolivia was getting assistance from France and Argentina in developing nuclear energy for power and medical purposes.

The Chinese icebreaker that helped rescue 52 passengers from a Russian ship stranded in Antarctic ice found itself stuck in heavy ice, further complicating the 9-day “roller-coaster” rescue operation. “Snow Dragon” (Xue Long) had ferried the passengers from the stranded Russian ship to an Australian icebreaker late on Thursday. But it now has concerns about its own ability to move through heavy ice, the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) said. “It will attempt to maneuver through the ice when tidal conditions are most suitable during the early hours of 4 January 2014,” AMSA said. ”Xue Long notified AMSA at 1pm AEDT this

MEXICO CITY – Mexico received $19.8 billion in remittances from emigrants in the first 11 months of 2013, down 4.5 percent compared to the same period in 2012, the Bank of Mexico said Thursday.

Remittances totaled $1.693 billion in November 2013, up 0.05 percent from November 2012, when $1.692 billion in remittances flowed into the country. This was the fourth consecutive month that the figure was positive, with a 13-month negative trend ending in August 2013.

The pizza arrived, steaming and delectable, a smoked-mozzarella-and-sausage pie presented to Mayor Bill de Blasio like a gilded offering to a visiting caliph. The mayor, on a pilgrimage on Friday to Goodfellas, a venerable Staten Island pizzeria, smiled, nodded at his slice and then proceeded to do the unthinkable: eat it with a knife and fork. Cue the foodie firestorm. “Disaster,” declared a writer at New York magazine, citing the longstanding city protocol of devouring pizza, no matter how greasy, with the hands, and the hands only. One website called it Mr. de Blasio’s first mistake as mayor.

He was also musically gifted. But he couldn´t stop smoking weed. The school and his parents did all they could; he even took up sports so he wouldn´t go home after school and smoke. The more he smoked, the more he slacked off, the less frequently he attended class, did his work, and participated in class. They finally expelled him. He was last seen walking on 101

You can feel the charm when you watch her operate in person, that Sarah Palin. You don’t expect it, but it’s there – the awkward mix of pseudo-authenticity and charisma, the smooth way with a room full of reporters, the way she just carries on, regardless. Me, I was taken aback. She’s practically my new bestie, now. Squeezed my hand, called me “honey,” even stopped to squeeze my shoulder on her way out and thank me. We had a wee chat and a laugh.

Every night’s going to be Halloween night for Hillary. The skeletons in her closet are signing up now for the conga line. They’re impatient to put on their dancing shoes for the 2016 presidential campaign. Like it or not, it’s just around the corner. Even when her friends try to raise their voices in Hillary’s defense, what comes out is mostly static. The attempted whitewash by The New York Times of the hash she made of Benghazi only reminds everyone that she was asleep when the telephone rang at 3 o’clock in the morning. Robert M. Gates, the former defense secretary, tried

Hi, everybody. Yesterday, we learned that in 2013, our businesses created 2.2 million new jobs — including 87,000 last month. Our unemployment rate is the lowest it has been since October 2008. And across our broader economy, there are signs of progress. [Snip] We’ve cut our deficits by more than half. Thanks to the hard work and sacrifice of the American people, our economy is growing stronger. But we know we’ve got more work to do together. It depends on the success of the American people. It depends on your ability to make ends meet and provide for your families.

Most government scandals involve the manipulation of the system in obscure ways by people no one has ever heard of. That is why George Washington Bridgegate is nearly a perfect scandal — because it is comprehensible and (as they say in Hollywood) “relatable” to everyone who has ever been in a car. This is the reason this one is not going to go away so easily, even if one accepts the contention that Gov. Chris Christie had nothing whatsoever to do with it.(snip)Journalists know the Obamans. Intimately. They know them from college, they know them from work, they know them

Many of the documents were given to the panel by an attorney for David Wildstein, a former top official of the Port of New Jersey and New Jersey, and include the e-mails that emerged on Wednesday revealing a top aide to Gov. Chris Christie was directly tied to the traffic-clogging closure of local access lanes leading to the bridge in Fort Lee. Democrats have sought for months to link the lane closures to the

A violent ex-con has been charged with multiple counts in the road rage shooting death of a 21-year-old female Georgia college student. Sparkles Lindsay, 22, followed Kimberly Kilgore, 21, into her gated apartment complex last year and shot her to death while her best friend sat in the passenger seat and watched in horror, police say. Ms Lindsay faces a charge of malice murder, two counts of felony murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Hillary Clinton warns in a new book that the “clock is turning back” on women across America and offers a passionate argument for prioritizing the advancement of women and girls. Clinton, the former secretary of state and possible presidential contender, is one of a slew of high-profile contributors to a new report set to be released Sunday compiled by author and activist Maria Shriver and the liberal Center for American Progress. “[Fighting] to give women and girls a fighting chance isn’t just a nice thing to do,” Clinton writes in “The Shriver Report: A woman’s nation pushes back from the

Earlier this week, there was a spring in conservatives’ step. That was because Chris Christie was in deep doo-doo. His career seemed to be imploding, over Bridgegate. Conservatives hadn’t been so happy since the Obamacare rollout (which wasn’t that long ago). The end of Christie’s career would not be a good thing — for New Jersey, for the Republican party, for conservatism, or for the country. He is a valuable conservative, one of the most talented politicians in America. We are lucky to have him on our side — general side. Lately, I have been more and more impatient with 100-percenters —
