420 with CNW – Massachusetts Consumers Buy Legal Marijuana Worth $393 Million in First Year

It has been a year since Massachusetts started selling recreational marijuana, and although the state was not in a hurry to speed up the matter, the public was interested as they rushed to the retail stores immediately after the sale began.

It took long to legalize adult-use marijuana in the state, but in November of 2016, the citizens legalized recreational cannabis through the ballot. In 2017, Massachusetts governor, Charlie Baker, signed legislation that changed the rules governing weed, pushing the sales of recreational marijuana back by six months. After overcoming several other hiccups, the Cannabis Control Commission (CCC) passed the most significant regulations in March of 2018. The state only had four retail outlets licensed to sell marijuana by…

Mexico farm town prepares funerals after 9 Americans slain

Dec 11, 2019

LA MORA, Mexico — Under a strong security presence, this remote farming community prepared to hold the first funerals Thursday for some of the nine American women and children killed by drug cartel gunmen. Dozens of high-riding pickups and SUVS, many with U.S. license plates from as far away as North Dakota, bumped across dirt and rock roads over desert, arid grasslands and pine-covered mountains Wednesday as night fell on this community of about 300 people. Many of the residents are dual U.S. and Mexican citizens who consider themselves Mormon but are not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ...

Wisconsin Senate to vote on firing agriculture secretary

Dec 11, 2019

MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin's Republican-controlled Senate prepared Tuesday to fire the state agriculture secretary appointed by Democratic Gov. Tony Evers, the latest in a series of skirmishes between the governor and the GOP that comes as Wisconsin is losing dairy farmers at a record pace. Republicans and Evers have been fighting since before Evers even took office. Republicans convened a lame-duck session to pass laws weakening Evers' power in December. This summer, Evers used his expansive veto to reshape the GOP-passed state budget, resulting in attempts in court and through a constitutional amendment to weaken his veto authority. And on...

Try something new with uncommonly delicious (and ugly) fruit

Dec 11, 2019

As I savor one of my just-picked American persimmons (Diospyros virginiana), I'm reminded how this fruit — and a few other delectable fruits — would never sell. Why not? Because they're ugly! Although the persimmons hung from the branches as handsome, plump, orange orbs up to a few weeks ago, by now they have shriveled and their skins are darkening to brown and black. The texture and flavor have likewise changed. They once were like dried apricots that have been plumped up in water and then dipped in honey with a dash of spice. Now, they've become mushier, with some...

Nigerian firefighters battle huge blazes at market in Lagos

Dec 11, 2019

LAGOS, Nigeria — Nigerian firefighters were battling two fires that broke out almost simultaneously Tuesday at a busy market in central Lagos, the country's largest city and commercial center. Balogun Market, where the fires erupted, is one of Nigeria's largest textile markets. "We have split our team in two to fight both fires," Ganiyu Olayiwola, head of the Federal Fire Service in Lagos, told The Associated Press. The two fires don't appear to be related, he said, adding that it wasn't immediately clear if there were any casualties. Thick black smoke and flames were shooting up from five-story buildings surrounding...

Millennial Money: Secrets of a Black Friday Shopper

Dec 11, 2019

My husband and I have a Thanksgiving routine. Before the family arrives or the turkey is carved, we gather in the living room. As Christmas music plays in the background, he turns on his laptop, and I mine. That's when the deal hunt begins. Some people cringe at the thought of shopping on Thanksgiving or Black Friday, but I revel in it. Maybe it's because I love a good bargain, or because I write about how to save money. Whatever the reason, I know a lot about Black Friday. And I'd like to share some secrets with you. SHOPPING EARLY...
