Ron Paul Challenges ‘Ironic’ Advancing Democracy Reason for Imposing New President on Venezuela

Ron Paul is not impressed by the convoluted reasoning presented by the United States government in support of its effort to impose a new president on the people of Venezuela. In his first answer in a Friday interview at RT focused on this ongoing “regime change” effort, the peace advocate and former presidential candidate predicted this effort would be difficult and would lead to violence and, possibly, a civil war. Paul then proceeds to criticize as “ironic” the US trying to justify its seeking to impose its choice of a president on Venezuelans as promoting democracy.

Taxing and Regulating the Hell out of Marijuana in California

A year into legal recreational marijuana sales in California, the volume of sales is far less than many people, and the state government, expected. The reason for low sales numbers is not that people stopped liking marijuana. The missing expected sales are still being made, but in the black market. Because “California is regulating and taxing the hell out of cannabis” in the legal market, it is hard “for legal suppliers to compete with the state's longstanding, extensive, and highly developed black market,” writes Jacob Sullum in a Friday Reason article.
