Nuclear Alert: Radioactive Leak at New Mexico Nuclear Dump/Dept of Energy Investigating | LA Times/CNN

Nuclear Alert: Radioactive Leak at Carlsbad New Mexico  WIPP Facility - WIPP, the nation’s first and only deep geological nuclear waste repository, takes plutonium-contaminated waste...

FILE - The first load of nuclear waste arrives in this March 26, 1999

 14.2.2014: Radiation alarm at New Mexico nuclear disposal plant [...] a first-of-its-kind response at a nuclear disposal facility outside of Carlsbad, New Mexico, an Energy Department spokesman told CNN. 

17.2.2014: An air monitor at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant detected the spike in an isolated area half a mile below the ground. The incident prompted an immediate shutoff of filtered air from the facility into the environment [...] “This is the first time we had to close off air filtered by the facility to the outside,”  (CNN)

18.2.2014: Officials at the site discounted any effect on human health, saying no radiation had escaped to the surface and no workers were exposed. So far, it is unknown what caused the release of radioactivity inside the repository, built in ancient salt beds 2,150 feet below the surface. (LA Times)

Breaking: FED OK Marijuana Money for Banks | Post

Feds OK marijuana banking; establish guidelines

Published: No Comments
Banks were given a green light Friday to offer services to the legal marijuana industry, but must continue to report any suspicious activity specific to that industry to federal authorities.
The historic step brings marijuana businesses closer to legitimacy in states where pot is already legal, but it falls short of the legislative action many banks want to see before doing business with marijuana operators. That will be up to Congress to consider.
In a joint statement, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a bureau of the U.S. Department of the Treasury, said the move gives “greater financial transparency” to an industry that remains illegal in nearly every state.
It also makes clear that banks would be helping law enforcement with “information that is particularly valuable” in filing regular reports that offer insights about how marijuana businesses work.
“Law enforcement will now have greater insight into marijuana business activity generally,” FinCEN said in a news release, “and will be able to focus on activity that presents high-priority concerns.”

Previous coverage about marijuana banking.

Banks currently must file a suspicious activity report any time it suspects a transaction has a drug connection. Under the new guidance, banks would have three tiers of SARs specific to marijuana businesses dependent on levels of concern.
“This reduces the burden on banks,” a senior FinCEN official said in a briefing before the guidance was officially announced. “Marijuana under federal law requires a SAR. Now, the necessity is limited, reducing the banks’ burden a bit and more importantly clarifies where law enforcement focuses its attention.”
The marijuana-specific reports are either “marijuana limited,” “marijuana priority,” and “marijuana termination,” which identifies the business as operating normally or having some measure of truly suspicious activity.
Colorado-based U.S. Attorney John Walsh said the guidance clarifies how law enforcement and banking will approach what’s been a sticky issue.
The “guidance seeks to mitigate the public safety concerns created by high-volume cash-based businesses without access to banking and the financial system, while at the same time ensuring that criminal organizations, gangs and drug cartels do not have access to the financial system to launder criminal proceeds,” Walsh said in a statement.

Colorado marijuana sales
Colorado and Washington are the only states to allow legal recreational marijuana sales while 20 about others allow medical marijuana.

“Now that some states have elected to legalize and regulate the marijuana trade, FinCEN seeks to move from the shadows the historically covert financial operations of marijuana businesses,” FinCEN director Jennifer Shasky Calvery said in a statement.

Tesla finishes World Record Cross Country Rally on Supercharger Network | #DriveFree/Tesla Motors Blog

Congratulations to the Tesla Motors Team for the Guinness World Record Coast to Coast Electric Vehicle Rally!!!

The total trip logged 3464.5 Miles and consumed 1197.8 kWh on the #Tesla #Supercharger Network without using any gasoline or paying for the juice at the Supercharger stations.

Tesla Motors is a True American Electric Vehicle:

“Throughout the journey, Tesla’s rally team was privileged to meet fans from around the country at Superchargers in Worthington, MN, Macedonia, OH, and Newark, DE, among others,” wrote Tesla’s Hamish McKenzie. “These fans brought firm handshakes, warm smiles, hot coffee, and a fierce pride in their vehicles.” He also noted that the Tesla employees that participated in the drive were all “directly involved with the construction, operation, and deployment” of the Supercharger network, which is still expanding. Superchargers, which are free to use for Model S owners, are situated in more than 85 locations worldwide, with many more due to come online in the next couple of years. Aside from not costing users a cent, Superchargers are also faster than regular charging: they replenish half a charge in as little as 20 minutes. Father-daughter combination John and Jill Glenney were quick to claim the mantle of "first electric car drive across America using only Superchargers," completing the cross country drive last week as Tesla energized the final stations along the route." - Tesla Blog

Flag on the Play: Why Stoner Bowl is no Laughing Matter - NJ to exploreMarijuana Legalization | Drug Policy Alliance

The recent Legalization of Marijuana for recreational use in Colorado and Washington have far reaching effects in areas of Business, Economics, and Criminal Justice in the rest of the Country.
With the criminal aspect removed these States have hit upon a winning combination.
As the "Big Game" to be played in New Jersey, that State is planning a journey into the recreational Legalization of Marijuana (Medical is already Legal).
WE are the ones who can make this happen in our States.
Let's Act on it.
And don't forget, there is a football game to be played.
Enjoy the #StonerBowl!!!

It is time to recognize that ending marijuana prohibition can and should be a tool to help address institutional racism. The jubilance of the #StonerBowl at the Meadowlands taunts the more than 600,000 families in New York whose lives have been shattered by racist, unlawful, and expensive marijuana arrests. Photo: AP

With both Denver and Seattle playing this week’s Super Bowl, the news is full of marijuana puns, and jokes about the #StonerBowl.  Yet as someone invested in the drug policy reform movement and acutely aware of how much marijuana prohibition has harmed communities of color, I struggle to find the humor. irony of the Super Pot Bowl being held in the stadium of the two New York City football teams should not be lost on anyone. New York, after all, is the marijuana arrest capital of the world, with tens of thousands of marijuana possession arrests every year. Young Black and Latino men make up over 85 percent of the arrests in New York City; and in areas like Buffalo and Syracuse, it’s over 90 percent.

As my second-favorite Manning brother throws touchdowns, somewhere in Bedford Stuyvesant, a young Black man will face his first arrest – handcuffed, taken to the station, photographed, fingerprinted, and given a permanent arrest record – all for a simple marijuana possession.
