| PRINT | EMAIL | PERMALINK Test This Mess THC testing follows the dodo By Joshua Lee Rob M. Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed a number of pro-cannabis bills into law earlier this month. One of the most notable was SB 406, “Medical Marijuana Changes,” which should improve many of the issues patients and producers have been complaining about for years (and might raise a few new ones, as was reported in our most recent issue of the Leaflet newsletter—subscribe now, ya' so-and-sos). It's the first major statutory change that's been made to the Lynn and Erin Compassionate Use Act since its inception in 2007. The law incorporates changes that were called for from a number of other bills that were considered this year. Under SB 406, the renewal period for registration in the medical program has been extended from one year to three. Students enrolled in the program and attending public schools are now allowed to be administered medical cannabis at school. THC … [Read more...] about Baked Goods: Test This Mess

About an hour agoEditor’s note: This NFL Draft will be the 20th under the eye of Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert. In conjunction with the Trib’s daily positional previews leading up to the April 25 start of the draft, we’ll look back at Colbert’s three best — and three worst — picks at each position. The Steelers often get credit for their drafting of wide receivers in recent years, and rightfully so. But has their drafting of offensive tackles over the past two decades have been even better? In one respect, perhaps. Even the three worst Colbert picks have combined to play 21 NFL seasons. Difficult to label any player who makes it through five pro seasons as a true “bust.” No, the Steelers since 2000 don’t have a Hall of Fame tackle on their resume at wide receiver like they do in sixth-round pick Antonio Brown. But they mostly have avoided major whiffs, and they more often than not have come away with a reliable … [Read more...] about 3 best, 3 worst Steelers offensive tackle draft picks in the Kevin Colbert era

Josh Gordon is a Patriot. The NFL transaction wire made the news official Tuesday evening: New England will receive Gordon from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in next year’s draft. Acquiring Gordon was a contentious decision, considered to be low-risk, high-reward by some and needlessly desperate by others. On one hand, the 27-year-old tantalized the league in 2014, leading the NFL in receiving yards and earning first-team All-Pro honors. On the other, he hasn’t been active for a full season since his rookie year, battling substance abuse and multiple suspensions. Here’s what people are saying after the trade: Willie McGinest: ‘It’s going to be up to him’ Former Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest said on NFL Network’s “Total Access” Monday that he expects the Patriots to surround Gordon with the necessary resources to facilitate success. McGinest, who spent 12 seasons in New England, … [Read more...] about Ex-Patriots and NFL experts weigh in on the decision to trade for Josh Gordon

A series of discoveries refreshes our yearning for the red planet. ByDennis Overbye July 30, 2018 There it was: Glowering red on the dashboard of the sky like an astrological warning light next to the full Blood Moon Friday. Mars. It was calling brightly out across 35.8 million miles of space, a gulf humans have yearned to cross for as long as they have known that the lights in the sky are places. This week, the closest it has been to Earth in 15 years. That yearning has now been refreshed — if in fact it ever went away — by the discovery of a 12-mile-wide lake under the southern ice cap on Mars by the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter. An oasis for interplanetary dreamers. Microbes are known to inhabit similar … [Read more...] about Mars Is Frigid, Rusty and Haunted. We Can’t Stop Looking at It.
