Berkeley dispensaries must give
free pot to poor members, city says

Los Angeles Times, by Lauren Raab

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 7/10/2014 9:32:07 PM

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley must give some of their pot free of charge to low-income patients under an ordinance approved by the City Council. At least 2% of the marijuana each dispensary doles out needs to be given free to dispensary members who have “very low” incomes and are Berkeley residents, the ordinance, approved Tuesday, says. The ordinance also stipulates that free pot must be the same quality, on average, as the pot that other members buy. According to NBC Bay Area, the City Council has defined very low income as $32,000 a year for one person

Free recreational drugs are a new human right. Or soon will be.

Added to ACA all medical insurance will have to include them.

#6, there is no such thing as "medical marijuana".

This was the BS that stupid lo-fo voters were fed like bottle babies to play on idiots´ compassion.

The argument that pot helps people "suffering" could be made for alcohol or any other narcotic.

I do find great amusement in all this. Eventually, the pot shops may find themselves few in number, or out of business, as the cheaper black market, untaxed stuff will be more tempting for idiot "consumers".

In the meantime, it´s great fun to watch liberal dope heads consume each other!

Oak Ridge, Tenn. — When Oak Ridge National Laboratory´s Biomass Steam Plant opened in 2012, it was supposed to save the lab money while also cutting pollution. But the plant had to be shut down after just a year and a half when a systems check found that some parts were already failing. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Johnson Controls handled the financing and construction of the $60 million plant. The company was to be paid from the cost savings, estimated to reach $260 million over two decades. An August 2013 audit by the Energy Department´s Office of Inspector General was critical

Nashville, Tenn. – Metro Nashville Public Schools is looking to hire more cafeteria staff. Their new free meal program has created a demand for more workers.

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda, have donated $1 million to a Washington state campaign seeking to expand background checks on gun sales, bringing the total amount the campaign has brought in up to nearly $6 million. The donation to the Initiative 594 campaign was given Friday, but it was not made public until Monday, when it posted on the state’s Public Disclosure Commission website. I-594 would require background checks for all gun sales and transfers in Washington state, including at gun shows and for private sales. Under the measure, exemptions would exist, including gifts within a fa

In another setback for California´s tough gun-control laws, a federal judge ruled Monday that the state can´t require gun buyers to wait 10 days to pick up their newly purchased weapon if they already own a gun or have a license to possess a handgun. U.S. District Judge Anthony Ishii of Fresno said the 10-day wait for current gun owners is a restriction on constitutional rights that isn´t justified by safety concerns. He noted that all firearms purchasers, including second- and third-time buyers, must pass a state background check of their criminal and mental-health records, but said it

Scientists at UC Berkeley released a video showing an earthquake early-warning system that sent an alert before the magnitude-6.0 Napa earthquake Sunday morning. Officials said the system provided an alert 10 seconds before the quake was felt. California is working to complete a statewide system, which could be unveiled in the next few years. Once fully developed, the system could give downtown Los Angeles 40 to 50 seconds of warning that the “Big One” was headed from the San Andreas fault, giving time for elevators to stop at the next floor and open up, firefighters to open up garage doors,

ICE refuses to identify convicted

Federal immigration authorities on Monday refused to identify the seven convicted murderers with Atlanta-area addresses that they released during the last fiscal year, citing privacy reasons. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement also could not immediately say why they were released or identify the charges for which they were convicted. But on Monday the agency referred to records detailing a variety of reasons why they may have been freed from custody during the fiscal year ending in September. In an Aug. 15 letter to Republican U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, ICE said it released 169 people with homicide-related convictions

A 4-year-old girl was shot by her 2-year-old brother with their mother’s boyfriend’s gun Saturday, according to the Shelby County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies responded to a wounding call in the 1500 block of Bridgewater on Saturday and found a 4-year-old with a gunshot wound. The girl’s 2-year-old brother found a gun under the living room couch and shot his sister in her right foot, deputies said. The children’s mother’s boyfriend allegedly told deputies he brought the gun into the house two weeks before the shooting and hid it without telling his girlfriend. Deputies

The UK´s special relationship with the US endured a minor social media inspired blip yesterday when the British Embassy was forced to apologise for apparently celebrating the 200th anniversary of the burning of the White House. On the @UKinUSA Twitter account, the British Embassy posted a picture and caption that was clearly meant as a light-hearted trolling of Americans. Many of them, however, appeared not to get the joke. Posted below a picture of a cake shaped like the White House, which had been decked out with sparklers, the British Embassy wrote the comment: "Commemorating the 200th anniversary of burning

Food stamp fraud rampant: GAO report

Americans receiving food stamps were caught selling and bartering their benefits online for art, housing and cash, according to a new federal report that investigates fraud in the nation’s largest nutrition support program. Complicating the situation is the fact states around the country are having trouble tracking and prosecuting the crimes because their enforcement budgets have been slashed despite the rapidly-rising number of food stamp recipients, according to the Government Accountability Office report. Under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, 47 million people have been awarded $76 billion in benefits. State agencies are responsible for addressing SNAP recipient fraud

Memphis, TN — In the summer heat, you probably are not wearing too many hats. But for a group of babies in the NICU at Methodist Le Bonheur Germantown Hospital, it is a necessity. A group of local Cigna employees decided to make hats for the babies. Clint Till´s baby girl is almost five pounds now, but she is still vulnerable. Covering all of the bases to keep her healthy is imperative. A tiny knit beanie cap goes a long way. (Snip) All 1,000 of the little hats were donated and woven by employees at Cigna, a global health insurance service company.

Christopher Talley and Latasha Brooks face several charges, including attempted first-degree murder. Police say a child was with them as they stole more than $1,200 worth of purses, but before getting away they left the security guard scared that he may have contracted AIDS.

Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan and it collapsed for no rational reason. I had been a newspaper reporter in New York but left the job to help editor Clay Felker start New York magazine. My marriage was breaking up and I was falling in love with Clay. The song that carried me through those years and all stages of my life is "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell. I first heard the song in 1968, when Judy Collins´s version was a huge radio hit.

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Veteran journalist Dan Rather told Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter that the scores of pundits calling for action in Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere were reminiscent of the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War, which Rather called a blunder of “historic proportions,” and that hawks needed to be prepared to send their own kids to battle before they so cavalierly recommend it for others.

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is

Having burned down and looted many businesses that serve their community, some residents of Ferguson (or maybe it is just the outsiders who came in to join the outrage) are realizing that it is going to be inconvenient to have nowhere nearby to buy food, liquor, tobacco, and other merchandise. Burned out stores also hire very few people, in case anyone actually wants a job.
