http://illinoisreview.typepad.com/illinoisreview/2016/09/chicago-gop-wins-federal-case-to-keep-democrats-from-serving-in-gop-slots.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Chicago Republicans are happy about a decision in federal court that allows them to control the party affiliations of people serving in their party – something one would assume was the case, which wasn’t, until this week’s decision made it clear. Now a person can’t vote in Democrat primaries and serve as a Republican committeeman. Chicago GOP Chairman Chris Cleveland wrote the following to GOP Party Leadership today:)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— Marijuana Makes for Slackers? Now There’s Evidence – SUSAN PINKER
http://www.wsj.com/articles/marijuana-makes-for-slackers-now-theres-evidence-1473953464
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In cities like Seattle and Vancouver, the marijuana icon has become almost as common on storefronts as the Starbucks mermaid. But there’s one big difference between the products on offer: A venti latte tastes the same everywhere and provides an identical caffeine rush, while marijuana stores offer the drug’s active ingredients in varying combinations, potencies and formats. There is no consistency in testing, standards or labeling. This matters because marijuana’s two psychoactive ingredients, tetrohydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD), have contrasting effects on the brain. “THC makes you feel high,” said Catharine Winstanley, a psychology professor at the University of British Columbia who does research on marijuana, while CBD “is responsible for its analgesic, antiseizure and purported anticancer effects.” In street marijuana, the THC-to-CBD ratio now tends to be 10 to 1, and it is increasing, a trend occurring even at some marijuana clinics, Dr. Winstanley said. And few people know what effect that has on their brains. A new study by Dr. Winstanley’s group in the Journal of Psychiatry and Neuroscience examines how these two chemicals shape our willingness to face a challenge. Does marijuana make us lazy?)
