The Yakama Nation tribe of Native Americans is ramping up its efforts to ensure a new law legalizing recreational marijuana in Washington state won’t apply on ancestral land.

Voters in 2012 elected to abolish the prohibition against pot in both Colorado and Washington states, but the latter is only this month issuing its first legal weed licenses to dispensaries that will grow and process marijuana. If the Yakama Nation has its say, however, then a large chunk of Washington will reject the new state law.

Texas: Time to revisit state's ‘antiquated’ rules prohibiting Tesla sales

Dallas News: In the hopes of landing that $5-billion Tesla factory, Arizona lawmakers are itching to kill off legislation that keeps car-makers from selling directly to the public. On FOX Business today, Gov. Rick Perry suggested the great state of Texas needs to do the same thing and at least try to vanish those “antiquated” rules, lest it see 6,500 new jobs go elsewhere.

“Tesla’s a big project,” Perry told Maria Bartiromo. “The cachet of being able to say we put that manufacturing facility in your state is hard to pass up.”

One Pizza, With Extra Federal Handouts

The pork in your favorite pizza isn't just pepperoni.
The debt ceiling debacle may have come to an end for now, but wasteful federal spending is still a center-of-the-table issue, perhaps not unlike an extra-large pizza covered in government pork.
Take pepperoni, for example. Imagine that you’re producing pigs, parts of whom are destined to be on top of pizzas nationwide.

Torture memo author John Yoo: Rand Paul’s Delusions Are Right at Home in Berkeley

By John Yoo | March 25, 2014 1:10 PM

Senator Rand Paul gave a much-noticed speech in Berkeley last week, attacking the intelligence agencies for being “drunk with power.”

Of course, this is Berkeley. There were no doubt many people in the audience who were drunk or intoxicated with mind-expanding substances. And among them was Senator Paul — not from the second-hand pot smoke which often floats through the town of Berkeley (where I teach and make my home), but from his celebrity politician status.
