In light of 4/20 lets take a moment to acknowledge

That if we elect Hillary, we are supporting keeping the school to prison pipeline up and running by continuing to allow marijuana to stay illegal. This will in turn continue to oppress many innocent people of all demographics, but disproportionately youth of color.

This has been a friendly message from an educated voter.

COOPER: Secretary Clinton, will you expand Medicare?

CLINTON: I will...(pauses to think of a word to avoid saying "expand&quot ENHANCE Medicare.
