MoJo Mix: 7 July 2009

I can't vouch for his cats, but Kevin Drum is one incredibly nice teetotaler in person. All the more reason his non-dirty-hippie's guide to marijuana legalization is well worth a read.

And when you're done weeding that (sorry), here are three more stories MoJo readers are liking today:

1) This reporter fled the Mexican Army. Spread the word and you could save his life.

2) Drug War Quiz: Do you know which anti-pot ad campaign findings the White House buried in 2004? Dust off your short-term memory and test your drug war knowledge.

3) The latest Palin ethics complaint? She allegedly collected per diem payments for living in her Wasilla home. Palin ethics bingo, anyone?
