Florida Medical Marijuana Bill Stalled While Bongs Ban Advances (VIDEO)
The Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Eighteen states and D.C. have passed medical marijuana legislation but in Florida, the "Cathy Jordan Medical Cannabis Act" can't even get a hearing in the state Senate or House. The bill has stalled in Tallahassee despite the fact that seven out of 10 Floridians support legalizing medical marijuana. Meanwhile a bill banning bongs was unanimously approved by a Senate committee. "Shame on us as a Legislature for not taking the opportunity to hear this bill this year," House bill sponsor Rep.

Music Review: Cathy Jordan - All the Way Home Seattle Post-Intelligencer Copyright 2012 Seattle Post-Intelligencer. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Updated 05:40 p.m., Thursday, June 14, 2012 All the Way Home is an appropriate title for this recording, as Jordan celebrates songs she learned from her family and friends growing up, as well as four original songs which celebrate Irish tradition. "The Bold Fenian Man" is a song her mother used to sing in the kitchen, and "Eileen McMahon" is a haunting song her father loved to sing. No matter where you are, these songs will transport you to somewhere green that exists in your own memory, and if you have Celtic blood as I do, you may feel a tug on your heart strings even if you've never been to Ireland.
