Nevada's First Marijuana Lounge is Now Open. The state's first marijuana tasting room opened this weekend in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Pauite Tribe is operating the NuWu Cannabis Marketplace on tribal land, which gives it a leg up on potential competitors. Under a state law signed in June, local governments are barred from licensing marijuana consumption lounges until 2021, but tribal lands are not subject to the law.

New York Sienna Poll Has Continuing Support for Legalization, Even as Vaping Fears Grow. A new Sienna poll has support for marijuana legalization in the Empire State at 56%, even as nearly as many respondents (52%) support banning all e-cigarettes and vaping devices from sale.

Medical Marijuana

Missouri Patients Won't Lose Welfare Over Medical Marijuana Use.

British Drug Advisory Panel Member Quits, Cites Political Interference. Professor Alex Stevens, a senior member of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs (ACMD), has resigned over the alleged "political vetting" of panel members by the government. The move comes after then crime minister Victoria Atkins blocked the appointment of Niamh Eastwood, the executive director of the drug policy nonprofit Release, after finding that she had previously criticized the Home Office and called for drug policy reform. Stevens said there was at least one other case of people being denied a place on the ACMD because of criticizing government drug policy. "I have resigned because of my concerns over the political vetting of potential members of the ACMD," Stevens said. "The political vetting fundamentally undermines the independence of the council," Stevens added. "It is supposed to be protected by the working protocol between the home secretary and the ACMD. This does not seem compatible if ministers exclude those who disagree with them."

British Government Replaces Minister Responsible for Drug Policy. Victoria Atkins, who had been responsible for drug policy for the Conservative Party, was quietly replaced in that position over the summer. She was replaced as minister of state for policing, crime, and fire services by Kit Malthouse, but it had been believed Atkins kept the drug portfolio. But on Monday, Malthouse's office confirmed he was now responsible for drug policy. He has recently been speaking for the government on drug policy issues and laying out a hard line against opening safe injection sites.

British Police Force to Begin Giving Free Heroin to Select Addicts. The police force in Cleveland, North Wales, will begin a program to provide free heroin to a small group of hardcore addicts. They will be provided with injectable pharmaceutical grade heroin at a National Health Service clinic three times a day. The idea is to reduce crimes committed by people seeking money to pay for their medications. Cleveland Police and Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger said the program would be available for heroin users "for whom all other treatment has failed and who are known to be the most active criminals in the town as they look to finance their addiction."

Jameela Jamil's Impassioned Interview About Diet Culture Is a Must-See For Anyone on Instagram   


After speaking out against harmful diet products for years, Jameela Jamil has successfully advocated for more regulation and is now closer to her goal of eradication. A bit of backstory: the star of The Good Place recently played a big role in getting Instagram to enforce restrictions that prevent minors from seeing sponsored content about cosmetic surgery procedures, detox teas, and the like. In an appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Jameela said she's just getting started.

"This is just the start of what I'm doing. Next I'm moving on to legislation because we need to get this stuff off the market and away from children," she said. Speaking to her own experience with eating disorders as a teenager, Jameela added, "I'm someone who took these products, and I will never get my full health back, and so I'm damned if this is going to happen again 20 years later."

"This is just the start of what I'm doing."

Though she has been considered a leader in body positivity since launching her I Weigh movement in 2018, Jameela feels more comfortable using the terms "body liberation" and "body neutrality." She said, "I believe in just not thinking about your body, and I have the luxury of being able to do that because I'm not being constantly persecuted for my size."

"I just manage to get more things done in my day when I'm not thinking about my figure," she added. "I can't stand in front of a mirror and say, 'I love my thighs. I love my cellulite.' I can just not think about them, and think about my bank account and orgasms." Watch her impassioned interview above.

1 dead, 1 injured in three-vehicle Richmond crash   


One person died and another was flown to the hospital following a three-vehicle crash outside Richmond Monday morning at Route 173 and Keystone Road.

Fire Chief Henry Gruba of the Richmond Township Fire Protection District said a work van, Jeep and a heavy duty crane were all involved in the crash.

He said the fire department was called to the scene shortly before 8 a.m. He was not able to provide information about how the crash happened.

"When we arrived on scene, we did triage," Gruba said.

The department determined there were four patients: two in the work van, one who was the driver of the Jeep and one who was the driver of the crane truck.

The work van driver had died, Gruba said. The work van passenger was flown by a Flight for Life helicopter to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville in critical condition.

Gruba said the driver of the Jeep and the driver of the crane both signed refusal forms and were not taken to the hospital.

The Richmond Fire Department responded with two engines and two command vehicles. The Spring Grove, Wonder Lake and Hebron fire departments also assisted, Gruba said, as well as the McHenry County Sheriff's Office.

Gruba said the Richmond Fire Protection District was cleaning up and securing the scene until 2 p.m. on Monday.

Route 173 and Keystone Roads, as well as feeder roads around it, were closed to allow the sheriff's office to investigate, Gruba said.

The fire department requested two helicopters to the scene, he said, but canceled the second one after they determined that the driver of the work van had died.

The McHenry County Sheriff's Office has not responded to calls or emails regarding the crash.
