CoolEdge - REBEL MEDIA: Grand Jury is NOT about Guilt or Innocence: Ferguson True Bill or No Bill? - Quincy, IL
hmmm ... well, it IS about innocence since there are lower standards for indictment (preponderance) than for conviction (beyond reasonable doubt). Of course if there is a trial both sides will have time to bring more facts, but the prosecutor is going to pretty much "bring it" to get at least to the level of an indictment, as I understand it. If he ain't got it for indictment, how's he…

Hate to say I told ya so, but…….. This farce was never about new school buildings or “For the Kids”. In fact it was sold to the public in the guise of an Economic Stimulus "Win-Win" Plan. It was always about getting $$$$ from the taxpayers before they realized how much their property taxes would decrease. Billy Madoff Daniels tipped off the plan way back in the fall of 2013 in his comments to the…

Ill. House panel OKs cannabis for epileptic kids

Legislation would likely prevent use by smoking

From Associated Press:

A measure that would allow children with epilepsy to use medical marijuana is advancing in the Illinois Legislature.

A House committee approved the proposal Wednesday on a 15-0 vote. The legislation would add epilepsy to the list of treatable diseases in the state's medical cannabis pilot program. It would also allow children with epilepsy to use medical cannabis.

Parents of children with epilepsy contend the oil from cannabis plants reduces the frequency of seizures and doesn't get users high. Opponents say they're against any further legalization of marijuana.

State Rep. Lou Lang is sponsoring the legislation. The Skokie Democrat says he plans to alter the legislation so that it prohibits children from smoking medical cannabis.

The Senate approved the measure last month.
