What about joint diseases such as gout?


No gout and no other chronic or serious diseases yet. Knock on wood.

Canada's Liberal party considers decriminalization of all illicit drugs.

Decriminalization <> Legalization of course. And by the article the Tony Montanas of Canada would still be criminals, just the guy looking to get high at home is not. In that regard, I do not see how it lowers violence and crime all that much. OTOH, I do lately tale the position of the meeting in "The Godfather" that not much you can do so just control the sale. Make staying clean a condition of welfare and let companies discriminate against users if they wish.

Would many Americans leave for Canada to take advantage?

There is already much open drug use in Canada that the police turn a blind eye to. The government even build "safe injection sites" where users can bring in their own drugs in a safe a sterile environment with a nurse on site.

For the first time in 33 years the Boston Marathon women's division was won by an American. (Desiree Linden). For the first time in 28 years neither the men's nor the women's division were won by African runners. No doubt the Kinyans and Ethiopians did not like the cold wet weather.

Confusion today. Comey said in the
interview that yes, Trump is 'very
intelligent', and he is 'absolutely
mentally fit to be president'.

This can't be right. CNN says your
average garden rock is smarter
than Trump, and he belongs in
a straight jacket in a mental ward.

Fake news from Comey.

Comey said Trump didn't have anything like dementia, but that he was unfit for the Presidency. Morally unfit.

Just announced Trump's lawyer has two other clients besides Trump. One is Sean Hannity.
