State authorities announced on Monday that there have been 3,458 cases cases of whooping cough (also known as pertussis) since the beginning of this year, with more than 800 new cases in the past two weeks alone. Usually, there are 80 to 100 cases per month.

It would be huge for marijuana legalization on all levels. Schedule 2 status will mean that weed for research will become more abundant, allowing scientists to finally crack the mysterious therapeutic value of cannabis, giving us evidence of its efficacy through controlled clinical trials rather than anecdotal data from self-prescribers. Another benefit is that state lawmakers will have one less reason to stand against medical marijuana in their states — a change in the federal government’s stance is a signal to the rest of the country.
