Marijuana

For the first time, the Senate Judiciary Committee has approved a bill that would allow up to 20 grams of marijuana with only civil penalties (no criminal conviction).

New Hampshire is the only state in New England that has no such allowances. If this passes the senate within the next week or so, it will likely pass the house as it is still quite strict in allowances compared to the other 49 states in which many are hopping on the bandwagon of freedom. Legalization with restriction is sure to follow after the 2018 election as some states have already such as Massachusetts and Maine.

The Undeclared War in Syria

Wonder who saw this coming?

On April the sixth, last Thursday, Trump shifted from bringing “America First” to the expected neoconservative stance. This, and more flip-flops to come, are to be expected from someone with no solid platform except for the already existing one in the legislature. The crisis is Syria is more damning than what can be explained by what mainstream media is posing. We are in a proxy war with Russia, that is true. Not only are we in a proxy war with Russia but we are now at war with Assad by our offensive on their air force base and by supporting the main rebel faction: the FSA (Free Syrian Army).

However, the FSA also supports Al- Nursa, another rebel faction with their own goals and territory. Furthermore, Al- Nursa supports ISIS/ ISIL/ Daesh. The US government is indirectly funding ISIS and frankly not many on the hill are making much of a fuss of the current situation.

If we originally stayed out of the middle east decades ago, this wouldn’t be our current world: terrorist attacks weekly, religious persecution, and a whole part of the world under constant regime and territory changes with no end in sight.
