  • Montana federal prosecutor warns of dangers of pot legalization ahead of vote news

    Montana's top federal prosecutor is urging voters to tread carefully before voting to legalize recreational marijuana, taking the unusual step of jumping into a political debate about a ballot initiative in the weeks before the election. In an op-ed published in several newspapers in recent days and posted on the Justice Department's website on Monday, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme told voters they should "review in detail" a pair of ballot initiatives that would legalize cannabis for adults ages 21 and older, warning that marijuana is addictive, could lead to more traffic accidents and could even "increase the risk of severe complications from COVID-19." Smoking, whether marijuana or tobacco, could increase risk of severe COVID-19 due to potential for lung inflammation.

  • Maxwell loses bid to keep sworn testimony under wraps news

    Ghislaine Maxwell has lost her legal battle to keep sworn depositions giving intimate details about her personal life under wraps. A federal appeals court upheld a decision from a lower court that the testimony given by the 58-year-old socialite and associate of disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein should be made public. Maxwell is currently being held at a Brooklyn prison awaiting trial on charges that she helped Epstein recruit underage girls as young as 14 to engage in sexual acts in the mid-1990s. She has pleaded not guilty. The documents relate to a deposition she gave in 2016 as part of a civil defamation case brought by one of Epstein's victims, Virginia Roberts Giuffre. Ms Giuffre alleges Epstein forced her to have sex with Prince Andrew and others when she was only 17. The Duke of York has denied the allegations.
