The Orange County Register reports that three Santa Ana police officers want to quash a surveillance video that shows officers making derogatory comments about a disabled woman and possibly snacking on pot edibles during a recent raid of a medical marijuana dispensary.

Off The Grid   I’d like to say to all police officers: when you do busts on medical marijuana, you’re hurting people that aren’t there. Medical marijuana helps seizure patients. It helps glaucoma and cancer patients. So when you bust in thinking you’re doing such a great job, just remember: what you’re doing could very

Sen. Bernie Sanders wants to make election a day a holiday, suggesting that it could make it easier to vote. He’s also introduced legislation that would automatically register 18-year-olds to vote, and said last week that he intends to offer legislation that would allow public financing of campaigns.

Off The Grid These are all good ideas for the most part. Although, I have my doubts about making Election Day a holiday because by federal law your boss has to give you time to go vote. So you have the ability to vote if you take the initiative. Making Election Day a holiday seems

“I would prefer to be a Republican, but the party has one big problem that’ll crush it in every Presidential election.” – Mark Cuban

Jen Hobbs Shark Tank star and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sounds off on why he could be a Republican, but just can’t bring himself to do it.  Here’s his reasoning, in his own words, reported by The Dallas Morning News: Today’s game is trashing the Republican Party.

The Second Chance Pell Pilot Program, a new experimental program, has been created to encourage prisoners to work towards a college degree with federal money while still behind bars.

Off The Grid The Obama administration is testing a new program that will provide a limited number of prisoners with the opportunity to pursue a college degree through federally-financed grants.   Some Republicans are against the idea, especially since the Obama administration is not waiting around for congressional approval.   Related Story Jesse Ventura: Will You

One more step in the fight to end corruption.

Brigida Santos Al Jazeera reports that California Governor Jerry Brown signed a bill into law prohibiting grand juries from ruling in cases involving police use of lethal force. This is huge because grand juries—bodies that determine whether or not there is enough evidence to prosecute a defendant for a felony or crime—operate in secret. Grand

Chronic marijuana use by teenage boys does not appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms or asthma, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association.

Off The Grid   This is amazing. Don’t get me wrong: kids shouldn’t be smoking pot. But I bet if those same kids they tested were using alcohol, you would’ve seen different results. Yet, alcohol is legal and marijuana is not. I don’t think alcohol, marijuana, or tobacco should be legal to anyone under 18.

A federal cleanup crew accidentally released mine waste into the water in Colorado. An estimated 1 million gallons of waste water spilled out of an abandoned mine area in the southern part of the state last week, turning the Animas River orange and prompting the EPA to tell locals to avoid it.

Off The Grid It’s horrifying that more precautions weren’t taken to avoid some type of spill like this. I think that river is going to be ruined for decades. You can’t even tell that the river is a river anymore. It looks like pea soup running through the river. It will take years to try
