Majority of Young Republicans Want to Legalize Marijuana

Most Young Republicans Want to Legalize Pot

The fence between the left and right is getting shorter by the birth year— a Pew Research Center survey has found that 63% of young Republicans believe marijuana should be legalized.

The survey found that while the Millennial generation (1981-1996) was the only Republican age bracket that supports legalization in majority, Gen X (1965-1980) wasn’t too far behind with 47% in favor of legalizing marijuana. However, the percentage dropped to a scant 17% in favor for the Silent Generation (1928-1945).

Believe it or not, the “NOT WEED” sour cream container actually contained weed! 11.4 grams, to be exact.

Sarah Palin's Hometown Passes Insanely Strict Marijuana Regulations

Sarah Palin's Hometown Has Insanely Strict Marijuana Rules

Though Sarah Palin may have shed a tear or two when her home state became the third to enact marijuana legalization in the U.S. Tuesday, her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska, has instituted strict (tight-assed) regulations that may just bring a smile back to her face — that is, if her face is still capable of showing emotion.

Wasilla (population 8,000) is known for its ‘hands-off government’ approach to most things, including hunting, ATVs, and superstores like Walmart. However, Palin’s hometown now has the strictest regulations in the country when it comes to legal marijuana.

Chelsea Handler Got an MMJ Card for Her 40th Birthday

Chelsea Handler Got an MMJ Card for Her 40th Birthday

Writer, comedienne, and Instagram nudist Chelsea Handler turned 40 yesterday, and to celebrate she gave herself the gift that keeps on giving: a medical marijuana card.

Handler has made no secret of her pot use in her books, stand up, and social media presence — much like almost every successful comedian. In fact, it was on Twitter that she made this grand announcement. Making her outspoken love of marijuana officially 'legal' shows that maturity really does come with age. That, or maybe she just wanted to be prepared for lower-priced, less-taxed MMJ when California finally legalizes next year. (Thought creates!)
