US drops 'mother of all bombs' on Afghanistan 6 MIN, 32 SEC

In Afghanistan, the US military has dropped what it calls the "mother of all bombs"—or MOAB—the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used by this country in combat. It contains 11 tons of explosives. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer explained, "The United States takes the fight against ISIS very seriously and in order to defeat the group, we must deny them operational space." Jeff Schogol, senior reporter for the Marine Corps Times, says the move is an indication of how dire the situation has become in Afghanistan.

America's foreign policy: Now you see it…now you don't… 33 MIN, 7 SEC

The founder of Communist China, Mao Tse Tung, was famous for unpredictability -- keeping the world off balance with unexpected contradictions. In less than 100 days, President Trump has set a new standard for American leaders, flip-flopping on Syria, NATO, China — and Vladimir Putin's Russia. Inexperience requires reliance on his advisors, so White House office politics may be more important than ever. But what does the inconsistency mean for America's strengths and weaknesses in Europe, Asia and other parts of the world?

Eight American states and Washington, DC have legalized recreational marijuana, but even medical use is illegal under federal law — and the Trump Administration may be renewing the War on Drugs. But, just across the international border, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has announced "The Cannabis Act," which would legalize recreational use for his entire country. Hilary Bricken is an attorney represents the cannabis industry on America's West Coast.
