    Oregon has a huge surplus of legal cannabis — more than its 4 million residents would ever be able to smoke.

    Lawmakers hope to tackle the issue with a bill curbing excess production and another seeking to establish markets to funnel excess weed into. https://t.co/ansyw2RPJC https://twitter.com/latimes/status/1143179554162450432?s=17

    Rejecting a request from Trump, a federal judge in Washington has cleared the way for nearly 200 Democrats in Congress to continue their lawsuit against him alleging that his private business violates the emoluments provision of the Constitution. https://t.co/Fyt6XIfvg8 https://twitter.com/kylegriffin1/status/1143568353195376640?s=17

    About the Erase College Debt Plan…another way of looking at it:

    Miranda
    *raises hand*…because this whole erase college debt plan is a lowkey reparations plan for middle to upper class white people.

    ………………………………..
    Miranda
    Black folks BEEN borrowing to go to college for decades because we always had less resources to go to college debt free. I can’t even think of anyone unless it was a full scholarship plus stipend, who went to college with their parents paying for it completely out of pocket. But the cost of tuition at big time state schools which have less than 5% of minority students, like your Ohio State and Univ of Alabama and Oklahoma and USC – those schools tuition rates have risen astronomically and white students have had to borrow more and more to attend. Its not the Ivy League students that are doing the squawking about loans..its these white folks at the football and basketball juggernauts who now want their “free ride”. They don’t wanna talk K-12 public schools, they don’t wanna hear about community colleges and free junior college tuition because that’s beneath them. They don’t wanna hear about free technical training..NOPE..this is about their wanting to dump their debt so they can continue gentrifying up another neighborhood to push out black folks.

    @ElieNYC Tell your mom she is not alone. It was a very disturbing segment to watch. We, everyday people, are concerned about children who have been separated from their families. But, this congressman just wants to chalk it up to “Everyone hates Trump.” Unacceptable. 💔 https://twitter.com/jerryberrios/status/1143358693590781953?s=17

    @ElieNYC @chrislhayes @realDonaldTrump That segment was painful to watch. Simply painful. The representative saying that he didn’t believe reports because he has seen different camps at an entirely different time? I mean, how do you even have a discussion with that? It was ludicrous. https://twitter.com/lynnhmedcalf/status/1143359230948155392?s=17

    The sweetest thing this morning is daughter, Jason and Carson calling me and singing “Happy birthday” and Carson saying “happy birthday oh yeah”! Just too much cuteness!

    Tbh Idk why Twitter spent so much time debating canceling student debt, a policy we all know isn’t going to happen. We might as well debate the merits of every American getting a free 250k house and two cars.

    I have become obsessed with the $775 PER DAY that these criminals are charging. THAT should be in every conversation about this. It should be brought up anytime you speak about the Concentration Camps.
    ” They’re charging $775 PER DAY, and the government is arguing that they can’t provide SOAP, TOOTHPASTE, CLEAN DIAPERS FOR BABIES AND A BED FOR THEM TO SLEEP?”

    NEVER don’t speak about this and NOT bring up the $775 PER DAY.
