If you've felt like nothing has surprised you after a week of Donald Trump's presidency, here's a curve ball out of alt-right field.

Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

"It becomes a cycle, where unless we do something to break that cycle, these kids aren't going to have the same opportunities as their white counterparts."

Fact Checks!

We're two weeks out from the Nov. 8 election and the Arizonans for Responsible Drug Policy have been kicking their "No on 205" campaign into high gear with a slew of ads filled with misleading information and flat out lies to dissuade voters from passing a law that would be part of any real responsible drug policy.
