From what I've read, Hillary Clinton supports a public option. The key word is option. Amendment 69 is not optional, it is compulsory.

Beer, the nectar of the gods. It certainly and happily contributes to my third trimester beer belly. Self-deprecation aside, this expansion is great news. It's obvious that they're doing something right.

This is something for which we can thank Congress and Jimmy Carter. "In 1979, Jimmy Carter signed legislation reopening the market to small brewers."

People used to smuggle Coors across state lines. It was better than Bud, but we still had Olympia, Rainier and Hamm's. Rainier had the best commercials.

I never enjoyed beer much until I drank my first Red Hook ESB from tap in a bar on 45th in Seattle west of I-5. That was before Red Hook was bought out by Anheuser-Busch, after whence their brews turned to swill.

Today we get the news: Shareholders Approve SABMiller Takeover by Anheuser-Busch InBev $100 billion beer deal.

The best beer is locally brewed. Fresh, healthy, convenient and better for the environment.

I might support something like Amendment 69 if it was voluntary, not compulsory. Give it a try and work out the kinks. Proof of concept, per se.

I thought that most cannabidiol to treat seizures was extracted from hemp oil. Hemp has very low levels of THC. Even if you disapprove of marijuana, I see no rational reason to continue the national ban on hemp.

Rhys, take solace in the fact that you have some semblance of a life. BTW the Rockies game tonight was great.
(Spoiler Alert) Bottom of the ninth, bases-loaded walk-off double to beat the Giants

I was just pointing out that illicit drug usage is not a victimless crime. Plenty of victims suffer getting that drug to our doorsteps. It's like buying blood diamonds.
On the other hand, the War on Drugs, we agree, has been an egregious failure. Until we legalize everything, have it produced by FDA approved pharmaceutical companies, we will have violence and death linked to drugs.
Otherwise you'll still have some blood on your hands.
