Shaheen: Money to Fight Opioid Epidemic Coming to N.H. 

Money that Congress approved last year to help states combat the opioid epidemic is headed to New Hampshire. 

Shaheen has been urging President Donald Trump’s administration to revise the formula used to allocate the funding so it prioritizes states like New Hampshire that are hardest hit by the crisis. She says she’s pleased officials have indicated that they will review the formula ahead of distribution next year.

Multiple people arrested at Flint water town hall meeting

Officers stopped men wearing hats from entering the church sanctuary unless they removed them, and men who would not remove their hats were asked to leave. The issue led to arguments between members of the public and police. 

They also escorted people out who used profanity inside the church.

“There’s a couple people that’s arrested,” Johnson said. “There’s a couple people cussing in the church, disorderly conduct.”

Colorado’s Governor John Hickenlooper warily learns to live with pot

“We were worried about everything,” Hickenlooper tells Yahoo News. “We were worried about kid usage going up, people coming into work high, the branding of the state. We haven’t seen anything negative in regard to any of those things.”

…”Reefer Madness and all the hysteria that surrounded marijuana in the 1950s and earlier made us so cynical about the whole thing — and that lesson tempers how we market the risks to teenagers so that they’ll hear it.”

The attorney general just ordered the Justice Department to review its policy on pot. What are you going to do if Sessions tries to crack down on marijuana in your state?

Well, you know, Amendment 64 passed 55 percent to 45 percent here. Polls show it’s over 60 percent approval now. I took a solemn oath to uphold the Constitution of the state of Colorado. Our voters put marijuana into our Constitution. I don’t really have too much choice, the way I look at it.
