For every tour stop, the organization will also release information about what’s happening in cannabis policy in the given area via their social media channels. You can follow along on Facebook, Twitter (@Cannabis_Voter), or Instagram (@Cannabis_Voter)The Cannabis Voter Project was launched by HeadCount in 2018 as a way of informing Americans about how their vote can impact cannabis policy. HeadCount aims to use the Cannabis Voter Project as a way to engage Americans that otherwise may not have registered to vote in the political process.According to The Cannabis Voter Project, recent research has revealed that, for the first time, the majority of the House of Representatives (224 out of 435 members) believes that states should be able to set their own policies with regard to the legality of recreational marijuana. They also note that the House majority that supports medical marijuana has increased from 244 to 267—a direct result of the 2018 midterm elections, which saw the highest voter turnout in a century.last_img read more

Scott Nix said on social media, “If you, said criminal fights me and takes my taser and then try to use my taser on me … I will blow your (expletive) brains out. I will not apologize. (expletive) you and your family and all these (expletive) politicians and media.”Miramar Police said in a statement, “Our department does not condone behavior that is inconsistent, incompatible, or in conflict with the values established by this agency. We expect all of our employees to operate with the highest level of ethics and integrity.”In addition, a statement from BSO said, “The Broward Sheriff’s Office in no way condones opinions or statements that discredit an individual or reflect poorly on our agency. As a public service agency we must always hold ourselves to the highest standard of professionalism and accountability.”The statement continues, “The sergeant has been temporarily reassigned to administrative duty during an investigation into potential social media/social network policy violations.”Karlin has turned in his BSO identification and his weapon to the department. Nix has been relieved of duty, pending the outcome of an administrative investigation. Two South Florida law enforcement officers are facing investigations by their respective departments, after they allegedly made racist comments on their social media accounts.Comments posted on the page of Sgt. David Karlin, a Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy who has been with the agency for 24 years, have placed him on restricted duty.His social media posts claim, “What is privilege? Privilege is wearing $200 sneakers when you’ve never had a job … Privilege is wearing $300 Beats headphones while living on public assistance … Privilege is the ability to go march against and protest against anything that triggers you without worrying about calling out of work.”Another on of his posts says, “I’m sorry but if you are still struggling with slavery I’m still struggling with when the vikings invaded England in the eighth century and enslaved my relatives.”According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, Karlin is a jail supervisor.A third post by Darlin  includes a picture of a seagull on the beach, resting on a pair of basketball shoes. The text of the post reads, “Apparently this seagull got his stimulus check.”The Broward Chiefs of Police Association (BCCPA) held a news conference today, showing their solidarity against the in-custody death of George Floyd.
