A 12-Year-Old Is Suing Attorney General Sessions to Legalize a Medicine That Keeps Her Seizure-Free

Attorney General Jeff Sessions might be a little shocked at the latest lawsuit filed against the government. Alexis Bortell’s lawsuit to legalize medical marijuana was inspired by her move to Colorado a few years ago, reports Denver’s FOX 31. The 12-year-old was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was a little girl. As her seizures became worse, her pediatrician told her about an out-of-state treatment that might aid her and make serious brain surgery unnecessary: medical marijuana.

Much ink has been spilled in the aftermath of Charlottesville about the supposed direct connection between libertarians and the alt-right. “Many prominent leaders of the alt-right have, at some point, identified as libertarian,” Matt Lewis notes in his seminal piece on the subject for the The Daily Beast, pointing to figures like Christopher Cantwell, Stefan Molyneux and Augustus Invictus. “It seems observably true that libertarianism is disproportionately a gateway drug to the alt-right,” he concludes. Lewis’ article incited a firestorm of responses for and against his thesis, from The...

Rand Paul Wants Harvey Relief to Come From Spending Cuts

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is proposing that the United States use spending cuts to fund approximately $8 billion in aid for areas hit by Hurricane Harvey.
