Most cops say marijuana laws should be relaxed. A Pew Research Center survey of nearly 8,000 police officers finds that more than two-thirds of them say that marijuana use should be legal for either personal or medical use.

Most cops say marijuana laws should be relaxed

The nationally representative survey of law enforcement, one of the largest of its kind, found that 32 percent of police officers said marijuana should be legal for medical and recreational use, while 37 percent said it should be legal for medical use only. Another 30 percent said that marijuana should not be legal at all. Police are more conservative than the general public on the issue. Among all Americans, Pew found that 49 percent supported recreational marijuana, 35 percent supported medical marijuana only, and 15 percent said the drug should not be legal. Pew also found a generational divide among cops on the marijuana issue, although not as large as the one that exists among the general public.

Law enforcement groups have often been among the staunchest opponents of marijuana legalization measures. Woman, denied abortion while in jail, sues Tennessee sheriff.

Japan pulls envoy to South Korea over comfort women dispute

Japan announced earlier on Friday it was temporarily recalling Ambassador to South Korea Yasumasa Nagamine in protest over the erection last week of the statue outside the Japanese consulate in the country’s southern port city of Busan. The ministry spokesman said in the statement that even if there are difficult issues, the two governments must continue to foster bilateral relations based on trust.

A similar statue was erected outside the Japanese Embassy in Seoul in 2011. Irish leader doesn’t regret calling Trump “racist and dangerous” In the run-up to Election 2016, Taoiseach Enda Kenny called Donald Trump “a racist and a bigot” on the floor of the Irish parliament.

Products that contain a cannabis-based ingredient called cannabidiol, or CBD, are to be classed as medicines by the UK medicines regulator from this year.

Cannabis ingredient to be classed as medicine in UK

The Medicines & Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) said it had looked at CBD because a number of manufacturing companies had been making "overt medicinal claims" about products. Gerald Heddel, director of inspection and enforcement at the agency, told Sky News: "The change really came about with us offering an opinion that CBD is in fact a medicine, and that opinion was based on the fact that we noted that people were making some quite stark claims about serious diseases that could be treated with CBD. " He said that a review of the evidence showed that "it was clear that people are using this product with the understandable belief that it will actually help".

Cannabis has two key ingredients - THC and CBD. The THC gets you stoned, and it can also make you anxious and psychotic. China upset at name change of de facto Japan embassy in Taiwan.

There is increasing interest in computer security these days and more and more people are using some form of PKI, whether it is signing Git tags, signing packages for a GNU/Linux distribution or just signing your emails. There are also more home networks and small offices who require their own in-house Certificate Authority (CA) to issue TLS certificates for VPN users (e.g.

StrongSWAN) or IP telephony. Back in April, I started discussing the PGP Clean Room idea (debian-devel discussion and gnupg-users discussion), created a wiki page and started development of a script to build the clean room ISO using live-build on Debian. Keeping the master keys completely offline and putting subkeys onto smart cards and other devices dramatically lowers the risk of mistakes and security breaches. Facebook, WhatsApp cookies: Why the fight over your data privacy is far from over. A ruling to protect German WhatsApp users' data from Facebook suggests that the EU bloc will not back down on protecting consumers' data privacy, despite an earlier win by Facebook in a Belgian appeal case.

This summer, the Brussels Court of Appeals decided to reverse an earlier ruling restricting Facebook from tracking non-Facebook users in Belgium through the use of cookies. The new ruling means Facebook is again allowed to place cookies on the computers of non-Facebook users. It might seem that Facebook's win shows that European courts have little power in policing the digital privacy rights of their citizens in the face of large tech companies. But the Belgian and European privacy regulators continue to defend their strict consumer data-privacy rules against large tech companies.
