  5. Astonished that PB got this far. Anyone that did business with him observed his personality and ethics. ‘And the Republican Party stood behind him for what? All the LEOs? Why is he "Teflon Paul"?

    A good read

    Pointing out that guns are deadlier than marijuana is about as obvious as saying snow is cold. But the federal government actually sees cannabis as more dangerous than assault rifles and other firearms. And that pretty much sums up the hypocrisy of American drug laws. Cannabis is one of the most tightly controlled substances in the country whereas America is awash with firearms. Nobody knows exactly how many guns there are in the country, but the Congressional Research Service estimates that there are approximately 300 million firearms in a nation of 330 million people. That means there are enough guns for everyone to have one in their home, making them hands-down the deadliest household item since they are specifically made to kill (regardless of whether that be for hunting, for protection, or for mayhem). And all that's fine according to the US Constitution. In contrast, federal law says it's illegal for anyone to possess any amount of marijuana in the home, whether it be for medicinal or recreational use. Marijuana is federally prohibited even though nobody has ever died of a marijuana overdose. Meanwhile, 1,715 people died in mass shootings over the last 5 years alone. That's the total death toll for mass shootings in America, not the total number of gun-related deaths in the US. Yet killing machines are enshrined in the constitution while a potential medicine is lumped with heroin in the country's list of dangerous substances. Marijuana is considered so dangerous, you can actually lose your Second Amendment rights if you admit to using it. According to the Gun Control Act of 1968, people who use cannabis or any other federally banned substance cannot purchase, sell or possess a firearm. So in a country where virtually any attempt at gun control is blocked in Congress thanks to intense lobbying by the NRA, marijuana is somehow a deal-breaker. Not the "stand your ground laws" that have seen homicide rates spike in states like Florida. Not the semi-automatic weapons used in mass shootings like in Las Vegas. Not even the "bump stocks" that turn semi-automatic weapons into automatics capable of firing 100 rounds in 7 seconds. Marijuana is the deal-breaker. And that doesn't look like it will change any time soon, even as other gun-control laws are rolled back. Earlier this year, President Donald Trump was praised by gun advocates for nullifying an Obama administration policy designed to prevent people with severe mental illness from owning firearms. So people with major psychological disorders can legally own firearms, but medical marijuana patients can't. In fact, suspected terrorists on the federal no-fly list can legally own firearms, but medical marijuana patients can't. So, yeah, in the federal government's eyes, marijuana is more dangerous than guns. Which means the only way to get assault rifles out of the hands of dangerous people might be to trick them into holding a joint and snapping a picture for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

    64,000 died from drug overdose in USA in 2016

    Not my point at all.I received a ticket from BPD recently for leaving a Dunkin Donuts with an unbuckled seat belt. Cost me a $150 ticket and an increase in my auto insurance. The technology in my car would save me in a head on accident. I don't need the police wasting their efforts on this. It is a pure money grab. Where is the protection for community to really crack down oh heroin and fentanyl? Priorities in policing need to be thought out and logical.

    From the executive summary of 'USDOT NHTSA - Marijuana and Actual Driving Performance' - https://ntl.bts.gov/lib/25000/25800/25867/DOT-HS-808-078.pdf "Marijuana's effects on driving performance were compared to those of many other drugs. It was concluded that THC's effects after doses up to 300 µg/kg never exceed alcohol's at BACs of 0.08 g%; and, were in no way unusual compared to many medicinal drugs'. Yet THC's effects differ qualitatively from many other drugs, especially alcohol. Evidence from the present and previous studies strongly suggests that alcohol encourages risky driving whereas THC encourages greater caution, at least in experiments. Another way THC seems to differ qualitatively from many other drugs is that the former's users seem better able to compensate for its adverse effects while driving under the influence. "
  9. Instead of the police worrying about seatbelt violations and speeding tickets, maybe all the resources possible should attack the opioid and fentanyl issue. And it will only get worse if little is done. Mexico and China manufacture this poison and our border's porosity allows its entry. There were 0 overdose deaths from marijuana yet it still is outlawed, illegal and given incredible amounts of attention by law enforcement.
  10. Does it bother anyone else that the male says "like" every fourth word? I thought UVA students were smart.
  11. Here's another part of this story... Friday night, 5 black men were killed in shootings by other black men in Milwaukee. And the Milwaukee Police Department has to deal with this excrement daily and yet are at fault. Pull the police back from this chaos and see what transpires.

    Bernie is Coming to Binghamton

    Who could attend a political rally on a Monday at 10:00 AM if they were employed? Damn we are done if this generation takes over.
  13. Kim is now reaching out to her friends in town, asking for donations. She claims to need $2,000,000 to run her campaign. Imagine, getting the call from the millionaire in need of cash.
  14. Kim should know better, but she made the mistake and can easily deal with it. She will really fit in well with all the out of touch millionaires in Washington. Can someone name our area's last US congress "person" who was from the Triple Cities?
