Cannabis may be among the country's fastest growing industries, but its status as a Schedule I controlled substance under federal law poses an inconvenient discrepancy with more liberal state policies. It's well known that pot businesses have used digital currency, like bitcoin, to work around the issue of banking and use of credit cards, given that most financial institutions, complying with federal law, will not service green industry folk. But now, in Washington state, even that's under fire.

Lords could 'delay start of Brexit UNTIL 2020' as fall out from Supreme Court continues

A spokesman for Clifford Chance said: “The Government may be able to secure the passage of its legislation through the House of Commons but not the House of Lords.

"Unlike defeat in the House of Commons, defeat for the Government in the House of Lords would not end Brexit, but it could delay Brexit for at least a year (amendments to the bill passed by the House of Lords but rejected by the Commons could have the same delaying effect)..

“The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 allow the House of Commons to override the House of Lords, but only after a gap of a year. That could potentially push Brexit back to mid-2020.”

Bad news Nicola! Sturgeon's EU dream in peril as MEPs brand Catalonia referendum 'ILLEGAL'

NICOLA Sturgeon's dream of keeping Scotland in the European Union were dealt a hammer blow today as Brussels politicians reacted with open fury to Catalonia's independence plans.

Fuming MEPs could not hide their contempt for efforts by the tiny Spanish region to split from the rest of the country and made it plain they would not welcome it into the bloc.

They fired volley after political volley at its plans for an independence referendum, which were touted by three Catalan MEPs at a highly controversial conference in Brussels this week.

The level of anger directed at secessionist politicians in Spain does not bode well for Ms Sturgeon, who wants to haul Scotland out of the UK in order to keep it in the single market.
