Oregon travelers can fly with recreational marijuana

Oregon Passengers at Oregon's Portland International Airport can legally board airplanes with up to an ounce of marijuana for in-state flights, keeping with the state's new law that legalizes recreational marijuana.

Airport officials said the Transportation Security Administration is not focused on finding marijuana, but rather keeping up with security and safety issues. If a TSA agent finds a passenger with marijuana, the local police will be notified to ensure it is within the legal weight limit (up to an ounce), the passenger is of legal age to carry the drug (21) and the boarding pass indicates an in-state flight. If everything checks out, the passenger is free to travel.


Florida justices: Defendant has ‘stand your ground’ burden

Florida Supreme CourtThe Florida Supreme Court is keeping the burden of proof with the defendant seeking immunity under the “stand your ground” self-defense law.

Rebel flag to fall in South Carolina, ending 'ugly tradition of prejudice'

The flag will be pulled down from the flagpole on the Capitol's front lawn during a ceremony at 10 a.m. Friday, said Chaney Adams, a spokesman for Republican Gov. Nikki Haley. Then the banner will be taken to the Confederate Relic Room a few blocks away for display.


Washington's 'Redskins' name dealt serious blow by federal judge's ruling

Washington RedskinsWashington lost their biggest battle yet over their controversial “Redskins” name, after a federal judge upheld a ruling that ordered the removal of the football team’s trademark registrations because they were offensive to Native Americans.

US district judge Gerald Lee on Wednesday agreed with the US Patent and Trademark Office’s decision from last year that the trademarks “may disparage” Native Americans. Washington had tried to overturn the appeal board’s original ruling by claiming their first amendment rights were being infringed, but Wednesday’s decision represents a significant setback for the NFL franchise.
