Please help = Did any one hear a segment on NPR today about the peyote/religion decision?

I just heard a small piece and it seems they were trying to connect this to the Hobby Lobby Decision.

I think this is the case they were referencing = The Supreme's Smith Indian Peyote Decision

Congress Pushes To Expand Marijuana Research

By Katie Rucke, www.mintpressnews.com
June 21st, 2014

Congress asks the head of Health and Human Services to do away with an additional review process required only for those hoping to study marijuana’s medicinal effects.

Thirty members of Congress signed a letter to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell on Tuesday, asking that she make the process of obtaining federally-grown marijuana for medicinal research less burdensome for U.S. scientists.

“Twenty-two states and the District of Columbia have passed laws allowing for the use of medical marijuana,” the letter said. “Over one million Americans currently use medical marijuana at the recommendation of their physician. There is overwhelming anecdotal evidence from patients, their family members, and their doctors of the therapeutic benefits of marijuana for those suffering from cancer, epilepsy, seizures, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, glaucoma, anxiety, chronic pain, and more.

“We believe the widespread use of medical marijuana should necessitate research into what specific relief it offers and how it can best be delivered for different people and different conditions. Yet, the scientific research clearly documenting these benefits has often been hampered by federal barriers.”

Since May 21, 1999, scientists interested in conducting research on marijuana’s medicinal values must undergo two review processes if their study is not funded by the National Institutes of Health. In addition to the review process that applies to other Schedule I substances such as LSD, psilocybin and MDMA, researchers must also complete an additional review process before they can be given access to marijuana grown in the United States by the federal government for research purposes.

HoF = June 17, 1873

Susan B. Anthony’s court trial began today in 1873 – she had been arrested for voting in the previous November’s election. Although the trial would lead to a conviction, Anthony refused to pay the fine she was sentenced to; authorities decided not to pursue further legal action.

Rumor Has It

Anticipation ... It's keepin' me waiting ...

James Taylor and Carly Simon To Reunite!
Inside word from “Late Night With David Letterman” is that for one of the final shows for “Big Dave,” Carly Simon and James Taylor will stage a very unexpected yet highly anticipated reunion (first in well over 30 years) to sing their big hit duet “Mockingbird,” which was itself a cover version of the 1963 hit by Inez and Charlie Foxx. “Mockingbird” is celebrating its 40th Anniversary this year, when Carly Simon released it as a single from her “Hotcakes” album, where she was seen in all white with pregnant tummy (son Ben Taylor) on the LP cover.

Sonny and Cher appeared on the Letterman show in a famous “reunion” and they sang “I Got You Babe” for adoring fans. Now, it’s Simon and Taylor’s turn to ‘do a solid’ for their friend Dave. The reunion was actually orchestrated by super sax man David Sanborn (himself a former regular in Letternman’s band) who played on the original record “Mockingbird” as well. #SetYourTivo

You are better off, MissMillie. Dude was cruising from the get go.

on edit:
you can not use sincere words while simultaneously doing an insincere act. It negates itself and makes a liar out of the person doing it.
