Marjorie Taylor Greene: I saw marijuana ‘zombies’ in NYC

Marjorie Taylor Greene saw marijuana “zombies” wandering around New York City when she visited to protest the arrest of former President Donald Trump, she complained Sunday.

The Georgia Republican’s comment was in response to a New York Post article that bemoaned how decriminalized weed had led to “proliferating mayhem,” clouds of pungent smoke throughout the city and stoned service staff.

“A license to get high has turned service employees into zombies,” the opinion piece opined.

“I saw them when I went there to protest against the weaponization of government against President Trump by a George Soros funded DA,” the congresswoman tweeted.

Greene spent barely any time in the city, giving a short speech at a protest before fleeing in an SUV as she was heckled by crowds of opponents.

Marijuana use in New York was legalized in 2021.

Distraught Trump supporter: ‘I’ll never vote again’ if he loses in 2024

One supporter of the former president is so dedicated that she literally can’t imagine voting for anyone else. “If he doesn’t win in 2024, I’ll never vote again,” 49-year-old Trump supporter, Michelle Lilly, explained to the Florida Sun Sentinel.

It’s obvious that the educationally challenged woman cannot comprehend the fact that if the wanna-be dictator, Donald Trump, wins the election, she will never vote again, because a vote for Donal Trump is — for all intents and purposes — a vote to transform the United States into a dictatorship. — wfw

All these years later, the Marines who survived are still haunted by the blinding flash and the piercing screams.

“I knew who some of the guys were that got hit,” Chris Covington remembers, “because I recognized their screams.”

On the night of April 12, 2004, a deadly explosion rocked a schoolhouse in Fallujah, Iraq, where U.S. troops had set up a temporary base. Two Marines died and a dozen were wounded, some severely.

Florida bill would instantly ban books based on a single objection from one resident by Matthew Chapman

Florida has attracted nationwide controversy as new censorship measures put in place by Gov. Ron DeSantis have driven some schools to empty their bookshelves to keep up with a wave of right-wing activists demanding the review of any books mentioning racial or sexual orientation issues.

In fact, things have gotten so extreme that one school was even forced to pull a documentary about civil rights icon Ruby Bridges.

But things could just be getting started. As Greg Sargent noted in The Washington Post on Wednesday, a new bill advancing in the legislature with DeSantis’ support could formally require schools to ban any book, pending review, if even a single parent complains about it.

3 children and 3 adults are dead in a shooting at a Christian school in Nashville – by Joe Hernandez, North Country Public Radio

Three children and three adults were killed in a shooting at a private religious school in Nashville, according to a spokesperson for the Nashville Metro Police Department.

The shooter, who police said was a 28-year-old Nashville woman, was shot dead after being engaged by two officers, spokesperson Don Aaron said in a press briefing Monday. 

The shooting occurred at Covenant School, a private religious school in Nashville. The three children who died were students, and the three adults who died were staff members, Aaron said.

At least five of the victims were transported to emergency departments at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. A spokesperson for the hospital confirmed to NPR that three children and two adults sent to the hospital had died.

The Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt said earlier that the three pediatric patients transported to its hospital were suffering from gunshot wounds.

Aaron said he was not aware of any other gunshot victims from the shooting.

The shooter had two assault-style rifles and at least one pistol, he said, and the shooting took place in a “lobby-type area” in an upper part of the school.

A reunification center for parents and students had been set up nearby.

According to its website, the Covenant School is a private school associated with the Covenant Presbyterian Church serving students from preschool through sixth grade.

According to the national Gun Violence Archive, there have been 128 mass shootings in the U.S. this year.

Mayor John Cooper said Nashville was joining the “dreaded, long list” of cities and towns that have suffered school shootings.

“My heart goes out to the families of the victims,” Cooper said. “Our entire city stands with you.”

Crackdown proposed for illegal pot shops in NY

Michael Hill – Associated Press

ALBANY — New York authorities would be given expanded power to shut down illegal pot shops and levy fines of up to $200,000 under legislation proposed Wednesday by Gov. Kathy Hochul, who’s seeking to protect the state’s fledgling legal market for recreational marijuana.

New York is trying to get its potentially massive adult legal market into high gear, but has just three shops opened so far in New York City, two in upstate New York and more shops planned. 

Legal operations in the city are being undermined by a proliferation of unlicensed stores.

City officials have already gone after landlords who have allowed illicit shops to operate. The new bill before Legislature would give the state Office of Cannabis Management and state tax officials new powers to crack down on unlicensed activity.

The bill would give the cannabis office expanded authority to seize illicit products and establish procedures for the government to shut down unlicensed businesses. Violations could lead to fines of $200,000 for illicit cannabis plants or products and businesses could be fined $10,000 a day for selling cannabis without a license, according to the Hochul administration.

“The continued existence of illegal dispensaries is unacceptable, and we need additional enforcement tools to protect New Yorkers from dangerous products and support our equity initiatives,” Hochul said in prepared statement.

New York has moved slowly since legalizing recreational marijuana use in March 2021.
