Mixed Message?: Colorado Health Officials Want To Ban Almost All Recreational Marijuana Edibles

You can smoke it but not eat it?  I’m against legalization of pot in the first place.  But, isn’t it funny how easily government can contradict itself on the same subject?  

HuffingtonPost reports health officials in Colorado are calling for what is nearly a full ban on retail marijuana edibles in the state, just 10 months after the first recreational sales of marijuana began.
The Associated Press' Kristen Wyatt first reported Monday on the Colorado Department of Health and Environment's request for a ban on the majority of marijuana-infused food products in the state. 

The call for a ban from the state Health Department comes as multiple lawmakers, state marijuana industry representatives and state officials have made recommendations to be included in a Colorado House bill that seeks additional restrictions on the sale of edible marijuana products, all of which will be discussed in a working group Monday.

"Prohibit the production of retail edible marijuana products other than a simple lozenge/hard candy or tinctures that are plainly labeled using universal symbol(s) and that users can add to their products at home," Colorado Health Department officials wrote in their recommendation, obtained by The Huffington Post. "Hard candy/lozenges would be manufactured in single 10 mg doses/lozenges and tinctures would be produced and labeled with dosing instructions, such as two drops equals 10 mg."

Texas teacher Ashley Zehnder at Pasadena High School accused of having sex with member of cheer squad

Why would this teacher go to school administrators if she knew she sent a nude pic to the student?  That doesn’t make sense unless the student got the nude pic from her phone without her knowing about it. 

ABC 13 reports a Pasadena High School teacher is facing felony charges accused of having an improper relationship with a student.

Ashley Zehnder, 24, is a teacher and assistant coach to the cheer squad. Prosecutors say she had sex with a member of that cheer squad all summer long.

The investigation began after the teacher herself went to school administration to complain about a naked picture that was making its rounds among the student body. Once the assistant principal began asking questions, the 17-year-old student confessed he got the picture from the teacher herself and that they had been in a sexual relationship.

"It's terribly unfortunate whenever a teacher violates trust of a student like that," said Pasadena ISD spokesperson Renea Ivy. "I think it makes it much harder for the other teachers who truly care about their obligation as an educator."
The teacher has since resigned from the school She is out on a $10,000 bond.

Liberal Fascism and Anti-Christian Bigotry in America: Idaho Govt tells Christian ministers Perform same-sex weddings or face jail, fines

There is no shortage of Liberal churches in this country such as the Unitarian Church, the Episcopal Church and the Lutheran Church that are glad to perform same sex weddings.  This is about the Gay Industrial Complex using the force of government to trample upon the religious freedoms of conservative Christians who hold fast to what’s written in Scripture!  It’s not about discriminating against Gays, it’s the other way around discriminating against Christians.  

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho – Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys filed a federal lawsuit and a motion for a temporary restraining order Friday to stop officials in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, from forcing two ordained Christian ministers to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples.

By L. Brent Bozell III & Tim Graham

While the cultural commissars keep throwing praise and awards at raunchy shows on trendy Internet streaming channels, CBS has a series of highly-rated traditional police or military shows that get no attention or respect. "NCIS" keeps spinning off shows — this year in New Orleans — and "Blue Bloods" is a consistent Top 20 performer despite airing on Friday night. You won't see its star Tom Selleck at Emmy awards time.

Crowd walks out on President Obama at campaign stop

Wow, how the mighty have fallen!  And for this to happen like a blue state like Maryland is a added slap in the face. 
Reuters reports President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.

GOP Chair Reince Priebus wipes the floor with DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz face off on ‘Fox News Sunday’ 10-19-14

I used to get all worked up about confrontations like these.  But, in actuality it comes down to each person hitting their talking points.  I think Reince got the better of Debbie.  I wouldn’t be surprised if these two lile each other off-screen when nobody id looking.
Red AlertPolitics reports with just over a dozen days left until the midterm elections, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus and Democratic National Committee Chairwoman and Florida congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz met on 

Fox News Sunday” for their first joint appearance this year.

Host Chris Wallace kicked off the discussion by pointing to news outlets that now give Republicans a heavy edge in the elections. Specifically, the New York Times and the Washington Post put the likelihood that the GOP will take the Senate at 70 percent and 93 percent, respectively.

“I think we feel really good about our chances of taking the Senate,” Priebus said confidently.

He pointed to the fact that Obama is leading “the country in the wrong direction” and Americans are losing confidence in Democrats as proof enough that the public will elect a Republican majority to the Senate. Priebus said that Democrats have followed Obama “off the plank.”

“We’re doing what we need to do to win,” the RNC chairman added, “but it’s more important that we get our country turned around again.”
