Eco-News Roundup: Tuesday, July 7


Your Tuesday dose of environment, health, and science stories from around our blogs:

Straight wonks on dope: Kevin Drum has never smoked weed. He’s only seen a joint once. Here’s why he wants pot decriminalized. Plus: Government lies about pot revealed.

Palin’s last hurrah: Possibly a requirement that Alaska girls under 18 to get parental consent for abortions, despite scientific evidence that such policies result in more late-term abortions.

Does not compute: Conservatives’ bizarro healthcare arguments are sounding less and less convincing.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
