One Year After Uruguay Legalized Marijuana, Here’s What It’s Become


One year ago, Uruguay became the first country in the world to completely legalize marijuana in a move that has since been dubbed the "great experiment." But for the last few months, it looked like Uruguay’s experiment was coming to an end as public sentiment continued to go against legal marijuana and a rising presidential candidate vowed to repeal much of the law if elected.

At the end of last month, however, voters in Uruguay granted the leftist Broad Front coalition another presidential term by electing 74-year-old oncologist Tabare Vazquez over center-right National Party candidate Luis Lacalle Pou, 53% to 40%. In doing so, Uruguay solidified its left-leaning status and kept alive the country’s legal marijuana and the government’s growing dispensary system.

So while the "great experiment" almost came to an end before it ever really got its feet off the ground, it has lived to fight another day. Read More

Derrick Rose Opens Up About ‘I Can’t Breathe’ Shirt

CHICAGO — For once, the story around Derrick Rose has nothing to do with basketball or his health. It’s about something bigger.

Before the Chicago Bulls‘ Saturday night game against the Golden State Warriors, Rose came out of the tunnel for warm-ups wearing a shirt that read “I Can’t Breathe.” It was a reference to last week’s non-indictment of a New York City police officer in the choking death of Eric Garner.

The shirt was an unusually bold political statement from the normally soft-spoken Rose, speaking volumes without saying any words at all. He declined to address reporters after Saturday’s game, but spoke at length at the team’s practice facility on Monday about his decision to wear the shirt and why the Garner story resonated with him.

“I had the shirt made, my best friend Randall brought it to the game, and I decided to wear it,” Rose said. “It wasn’t any one [person’s] idea, I just thought I wanted to support something that happened. That’s what made me wear the shirt.”
