Sajid Javid paves way for legalisation of cannabis for medicinal use

Sajid Javid has declared it is “time to review” the medicinal status of cannabis, but promised it is “not a first step” to legalising the drug for recreational use.

The home secretary said current laws were “not acceptable to me”, as he announced details of a panel being set up to advise ministers on the changes.

Former Tory leader and foreign secretary Lord William Hague have called for the Class-B drug to be legalised for recreational use, and blasted current laws as “inappropriate, ineffective and utterly out of date”.

Mr Javid ruled out Lord Hague’s proposal, but said he would consider

Hundred of Childen Wait in Border Patrol Facility in Texas

(AP) — Inside an old warehouse in South Texas, hundreds of immigrant children wait in a series of cages created by metal fencing. One cage had 20 children inside. Scattered about are bottles of water, bags of chips and large foil sheets intended to serve as blankets.

One teenager told an advocate who visited that she was helping care for a young child she didn’t know because the child’s aunt was somewhere else in the facility. She said she had to show others in her cell how to change the girl’s diaper.

The U.S. Border Patrol on Sunday allowed reporters to briefly

(Manzanita, Oregon) – On June 9, the north Oregon coast’s Seaside Aquarium responded to a call about a stranded creature on the sands of Nehalem Bay State Park and discovered something very rare: a female northern right dolphin. (2008 photo above courtesy Keith Chandler, Seaside Aquarium).

The cause of death is still to be determined, but one thing is for sure: these are extremely rare. See Oregon Coast Rarity: Stranded Dolphin Only Seen

(Seaside, Oregon) – The darnedest things can be revealed by the tiniest details. In the case of the north Oregon coast resort town of Seaside, that’s bound to be the case. It’s been a tourist hotspot since the 1880s.

Three funky finds in the town are a particularly delightful, if not quirky, trip back in time.

The first: Head down to the Prom where it meets Lewis and Clark Way

‘THE HICHBORN’ offers fine dining, local ingredients in Stockton Springs

STOCKTON SPRINGS — When Kirk P. Linder and Charlie Zorich decided to leave Portland, Oregon, it was New England’s siren song that called them. Traveling in their 1984 Volkswagen Westfalia — affectionately called “Larri” — the pair said they were discussing their shared feeling that it was time to leave Portland. They had been working on starting a project out there but had become discouraged and were ready to move on.
