Oregon is expunging marijuana violations from citizens’ records. Portland’s Metropolitan Public Defender’s office will run “expungement clinics” to forever seal records of past pot crimes.

Off The Grid Michael Olsen from Illinois asks: Obama wants to bring in ‘Syrian Refugees’. Some strongly doubt that they are just Syrian Refugees, and are instead being used for an invasion.
