Legal Marijuana Test in Oregon Versus Alaska’s Criminal Industry by Taylor Marsh 
IT SEEMS Alaska hasn’t learned the lessons of the failed U.S. drug war, while Colorado and Washington, which just had its first legal sale, are among those states that have learned that having criminals run the marijuana industry is just plain dumb. Hopefully Oregonians will remedy the mistake they made a couple of years ago when they voted down legalization.
Meanwhile, Maryland is still struggling with moving to decriminalization.

Hillary Rodham Defended Client in Case Where Evidence was Destroyed, by Taylor Marsh

IT IS a very good thing for our democratic republic that Matthew Continetti is a writer and not any part of our legal system. It seems as much as conservatives regurgitate the importance of the Constitution and talk about rule of law, many don’t seem to understand these principles. The right-wing is running with the tragic story that theWashington Free Beacon is using to hyperventilate the tragedy of a 12-year-old rape victim, calling Hillary Rodham “scummy” and “semi-sociopathic” for her handling of a case that was tainted through bad handling of potential evidence.

The story got some national attention through right-wing anti-Hillary blogs and Fox News Channel, which is conveniently leaving out salient facts.

No one criticizing Hillary Rodham ever considers that it is cases like this one, defending an indigent man for a horrific crime against a child, that could have informed her later advocacy and made her the champion of women and girls, which has extended across the globe from China to Afghanistan. As if any female attorney wouldn’t be horrified by this crime, her spine steeled by the experience of having the duty to defend the perpetrator.

Josh Rogin’s heart wrenching interview with the 12-year-old victim was posted on The Daily Beast.

The story was previously covered in 2008.
