Baltimore State?s Attorney will no longer prosecute marijuana possession cases

quote [ Six years after Maryland legalized medical marijuana, Baltimore State?s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has announced her office will no longer be prosecuting any cases brought for marijuana possession.

Though possession and use for marijuana without state medical clearance is still illegal in Baltimore, Mosby said she will no longer be pursuing convictions against those arrested for it, regardless of quantity of marijuana involved or a person's prior criminal record.

Prosecuting such cases has "no public safety value, disproportionately impacts communities of color and erodes public trust and is a costly and counterproductive use of limited resources" ]

Good on her - she seems to know full decrim is on the way

Giuliani tries to clean up Russia collusion comments

quote [ Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump's personal attorney, attempted on Thursday to clean up comments he made the night before stating that Trump did not collude with Russian officials but suggesting that other campaign officials may have.

"I represent only President Trump not the Trump campaign. There was no collusion by President Trump in any way, shape or form," Giuliani said in a statement, adding, "Likewise, I have no knowledge of any collusion by any of the thousands of people who worked on the campaign.The only knowledge I have in this regard is the collusion of the Clinton campaign with Russia which has so far been ignored." ]

He forgot the conspiracy, bribery, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and campaign finance fraud. Full in extended
