The War in Afghanistan has dragged on for almost nine years. According to the Washington Post, there have been 1,189 American military deaths, which is more than two per week.

Poll says more support legalizing marijuana than oppose

A Rasmussen Reports poll released today says that 43% of Americans support legalizing marijuana, while 42% are opposed.

The LP has supported legalizing marijuana for decades.
