Medical Marijuana, from LA City Hall to Capitol Hill Last month, Los Angeles voters approved Measure D , which was supposed to reduce the number of medical marijuana dispensaries from more than 1000 down to 135 or so. Some have shut down, but 945 still have registered to pay city taxes. That's good for two or three million dollars in revenue, but it's bad for some neighborhoods. And on Capitol Hill, a $1.1 trillion spending package Congress will vote on tomorrow contains a multitude of provisions, including conflicting passages about medical marijuana.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
