If more states continue to legalize medicinal/recreational use it will become increasingly difficult for federal authorities to enforce federal laws regarding marijuana. In addition to the difficulty of enforcement, the increasing cost will make federal laws hard to defend as part of the budget. It would absolutely make more sense to do major law reform, but it will likely change incrementally.

Fuckin Obama man. He could have stopped his DOJ from going after poker and legal medicinal marijuana operations but he sat beside and did nothing. Weed was great when he could use his experiences with it to sound "cool" in his campaign/auto-biography, but he continues to permit an asinine war on the industry. Fuck Obama.

One can only wonder what he'll do in his 2nd term. Maybe we'll get lucky and he'll legalize some things, but I doubt it.

Haven't watched the video, but read the article. It would have been nice for them to at least list the other charges involved, other the just possession of firearms. The amount of charges to warrant 80 yr minimum is VERY large. It sounds sexier if you attribute it all to weed when making an argument for law reform though.

As an unlikely viewpoint, I am, and always have been, for the motion to legalize it.

The unions agreed to major concessions during the Hostess' first bankruptcy. A receiving clerk that was making $48,000 a year before the concessions, had his pay cut to $34,000. How would you feel if someone cut your pay by $14,000?

Hostess had been in decline for years. They tried to offer products to meet the changing needs of the consumer, but their efforts failed. They couldn't adapt to the market place.

The median salary for a shipping and receiving clerk in the US is $32,471, so at $34,000, he's still well above average. At $48,000 a year, he was in the top 1% salary range for that particular occupation. With salary and wages expenses like that plus other compensation expenses, it's no wonder Hostess went out of business.

You can't blame it solely on the unions. Sure, they are a part of it, but the failing business model is ultimately what did it.

Happier than not having a job. This is what unions don't get - they price themselves out of jobs.

The dirty little secret is usually that they don't price themselves out of jobs but they price those less senior in the union system out of jobs.


The basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very first object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.

Did the union just think they were bluffing that they'd need to shut down? Or were they like "some people just want to see the world burn." Sounds like someone fucked up majorly.

I'm surprised Obama didn't buy Hostess and sell it back to the union. Guess the BCTGM isn't quite pulling the puppet's strings like the UAW.

This article is factually incorrect and rather embarrassingly so. The CEO who supposedly received a large raise was former CEO Driscoll, not current CEO Greg Rayburn. Within a matter of weeks after the change in Driscoll's compensation package, he was fired and replaced with Rayburn. This occurred in March of this year. Shortly after Rayburn took over as CEO, he cut his salary to $1 for the remainder of the year.

If I were Mr. Rayburn, I would be rather upset by this libelous article. I suggest the author issue a correction to this factually incorrect article and redact portions that impugn Mr. Rayburn's integrity.

It's really a shame to see such sloppy reporting.
