Ex-Cops Who Fought Against Legal Weed Just Opened a Marijuana Business

ANTIMEDIA) Ontario, Canada — Two former top law enforcement officials in Canada who previously campaigned against cannabis legalization are now going into the business. CBC News reports that Former OPP commissioner, MP, and federal Conservative cabinet minister Julian Fantino and former RCMP deputy commissioner Raf Souccar launched a business Tuesday that aims to connect medical patients with quality cannabis. The launch comes eight months before Canada legalizes recreational weed. The news is particularly noteworthy because both men previously issued harsh rebukes of legalizing the plant. CBC noted: “Both men spent decades battling illegal drug use ...

CBS Badly Misplayed Their Hand By Making 'Star Trek: Discovery' A Paid Streaming Exclusive [Full Thread]

I was excited to watch Star Trek: Discovery last night, CBS’s return to a “true” Star Trek show in the age of JJ Abrams blockbusters. I set my DVR and gave it viewing priority over Fear the Walking Dead, because all the early buzz I’d heard was stellar. But while I really did like the show, the process of watching it was a total disaster. Though I’d set the recording earlier, football pushed all of CBS’s programming out of whack so that 20 minutes of some Oprah special aired during the Star Trek: Discovery recording. I watched anyway, as there was extra time in the recording, so I thought maybe cable had adjusted according and squeezed in the full show by ...

Professional teams across four major sports leagues that sometimes stayed in Trump hotels are apparently now finding different lodging while on the road, according to a report Thursday. An investigation by the Washington Post found that none of the 105 teams that responded from the total of 123 franchises from the National Basketball Association, the National Football League, the National Hockey League or Major League Baseball would confirm that it stays at a Trump-branded property while on the road. Of the teams that responded, 18 declined to comment and 71 indicated that they hadn’t stayed at Trump hotels in recent years. A total of 17 confirmed a visit to a Trump property within the ...

Another Reason for the Electric Car Push?

Whenever the government is rabidly enthusiastic about something you can be reasonably sure you shouldn’t be.Electric cars are being pushed for all kinds of reasons, none of them beneficial to us. If that weren’t the case, then it wouldn’t be necessary to push (mandate, subsidize) electric cars. They would be embraced as naturally – as freely – as a better smartphone or more-delicious (and cheaper) hamburger. Of course, it is necessary to push them. The why gets interesting.One of the reasons for the electric car push has to do with their very high cost. Which – if electric cars are to become mass-market cars – necessarily entails more and higher debt ...

Maybe reparations from the federal government are in order.When asked why I advocate for legalization of recreational drugs, I give a simple answer: Because the government doesn't know what's best for me or others. But there's another reason, and it's far more personal. Twenty-five years ago, as a college freshman, I was arrested by undercover cops for selling $80 worth of marijuana to fellow students. I was convicted of two felonies: distribution and possession of a narcotic. I spent a month in jail. Long after the ordeal, I feel resentment at the United States government and the old conservative guard who still mostly run it. It's important to understand that becoming ...

You may be aware that cops can simply steal – yes, that’s exactly the correct word – cash found on your person or in your vehicle, in the course of a traffic stop, say – solely on account of it being an “excessive” amount.“Excessive” being entirely up to them to define.It could be $10,000 – or $1,000. There is no specific amount of cash defined by statute that crosses a legal threshold. Thus, one cannot know ahead of time not to carry, say, $5,000 – but $500 is ok.It is enough that a government worker with a gun considers whatever cash you are found to have in your possession “excessive.”And these armed government workers can ...

Snapchat IPO Investors Have Now All Lost Money on Snap Stock

Snap stock has fallen below its IPO price of $17 for the first time, roughly four months after the maker of Snapchat went public in March. After briefly touching the $17 threshold in mid-June, Snap's stock price fell to an all-time low of $16.99 at market close on Monday. That means all the investors who bought into the disappearing-message app company's much-hyped stock market debut have officially lost money. Most people who bought Snap (snap, -1.49%) stock, which opened its first trading day at $24—soaring 41% out of the gate—have lost even more. An Uber driver who invested when shares hit $25 on Snap's IPO day has lost 32% of his money. And Snap has shed more ...

© Provided by CBS Interactive Inc. 0705-en-reynolds-minwage.jpg ST. LOUIS -- Cities all over the United States have been boosting their minimum wage. It's up to $15 an hour in Seattle, but it's going in the opposite direction in St. Louis, Missouri. Amer Hawatmeh's family-owned restaurant in downtown St. Louis is struggling. Along with rising sales taxes, and meat prices, a minimum wage hike to $10 an hour two months ago made it expensive to stay open. So he's cut back from five to two days a week for lunch. His hamburgers are smaller, his entrees pricier and his customers scarcer. Hawatmeh believes it's not the government, but a combination of worker determination ...

Over the past several decades, cars have become increasingly high tech allowing for computers to take larger roles in the routine functions of the car.  Computerized functions have been a boon to consumers, who advantage from greater reliability and efficiency, but also to criminal hackers who advantage from greater vulnerability.

U.S. first quarter economic growth revised up on jump in consumer spending
Post Date: 2017-06-29 17:15:06 by Justified
0 Comments
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. economy slowed less than feared in the first quarter due largely to a jump in consumer spending, providing a slightly more encouraging outlook for growth this year. Gross domestic product increased at a 1.4 percent annual rate instead of the 1.2 percent reported last month, the Commerce Department said in its final assessment for the period on Thursday. The reading was the worst since the second quarter of 2016 but above analysts' expectations, easing fears the economy had been hobbled at the start of this year. The government had pegged first-quarter growth at a paltry 0.7 percent in its first estimate in April. "The upward revision occurred even ...

It was the mystery of the missing roof. On Friday, St. Louis resident Laura McInnis discovered that nearly half the shingles on her perfectly good roof were missing. A haphazardly secured tarp covered the damage. A pile of tiles were strewn on her property, with some beer bottles mixed in. “I had no idea what happened,” she said. McInnis had just moved to Michigan with her husband, Chris McInnis. The couple were set to close the sale of their house in the 5600 block of Rosa Avenue in the Princeton Heights neighborhood. But on Friday, Laura McInnis was contacted by a watchful neighbor. “The tarp your roofers put on yesterday is starting to blow up and back,” her ...

For anyone worried about financial security in retirement, those ads touting gold and silver IRAs on conservative-leaning cable TV channels and from digital news outlets can sound pretty persuasive. Take the Rosland Capital commercial where actor William Devane gets caught in a downpour while golfing. “Some things you just can’t control,” says Devane, “like runaway inflation or unstable governments printing money as worthless as wet scorecards. But you can control whether or not you let the money in your retirement lose its value.” Then there’s the one from Lear Capital — like Rosland Capital’s, running on Fox News Channel — that asks the ...

Coal industry could be in store for a 'rare earth' reboot

The coal industry's future may have much more to do with building smartphones, wind turbines and missile defense radar than billowing smoke stacks and environmental finger pointing, say federal coal advisers and experts. The direction of the industry is aimed at harvesting what are known as "rare earth elements," for which the U.S. industry depends on China. The 19 elements are key ingredients in building complex electronics used in smartphones, jets, defense applications, advanced wind turbines and renewable energy, not to mention light-emitting diodes, or LEDs. The bottom line is that the U.S. needs to diversify its supply of the minerals, and the coal industry is the ...

This Is What Globalized Crony Capitalism Looks Like: Immelt Got Fabulously Wealthy While GE Shares Dropped

Jeff Immelt is perhaps the perfect paragon for the failures of the now passing age of globalization. Immelt is stepping down from his position as chairman and chief executive of General Electric, the massive company he has led since September of 2001. Jack Welch, his legendary predecessor, had overseen the company as its value rose from about $14 billion in when he took the reins in 1981 to nearly $500 billion when he retired 20 years later. Its stock price increased 400 percent. Annual revenue soared from $18 billion to an eye-popping $130 billion. When he took the top job, Immelt promised that “GE will always outperform any market that we’re in.” That certainly has not ...

Thanks for nothing, Federal Communications Commission.The basic idea of the cellphone was introduced to the public in 1945—not in Popular Mechanics or Science, but in the down-home Saturday Evening Post. Millions of citizens would soon be using "handie-talkies," declared J.K. Jett, the head of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Licenses would have to be issued, but that process "won't be difficult." The revolutionary technology, Jett promised in the story, would be formulated within months. But permission to deploy it would not. The government would not allocate spectrum to realize the engineers' vision of "cellular radio" until 1982, ...
