The Daily Word in earthquakes in Italy, Dakota Access Pipeline, and Humboldt County weed growers

The Daily Word

Former DEA official Joseph Rannazzisi has accused Congress of prioritizing the pharmaceutical industry's profits over public health in its fight against prescription opioid epidemic. Rannazzisi said that drug companies have a "stranglehold" on Congress, influencing legislation to be more lax in allowing doctors to prescribe disproportionately large doses of prescription painkillers.

Native American water protectors of the Standing Rock Camp in North Dakota are despairing as the Dakota Access Pipeline nears completion. Time is running out, but some are doubling down on their commitment to stopping the pipeline before it reaches the Missouri River. “They can’t go through the river. We are not going to let them,” said Leota Eastman Iron Cloud, a Native American activist from South Dakota.

Central Italy was rocked by a devastating 6.6-magnitude earthquake on Sunday, leaving 300 dead and 15,000 without homes. Aftershocks continued into Monday, including one at 4.2-magnitude. This is the worst earthquake in Italy since 1980.

Lebanon was 29 months without a head of state until today, when Michel Aoun was sworn into office. Political infighting has kept position open since Michel Suleiman stepped down at the end of his term in May 2014.

With the legalization of medical marijuana in California came opportunities for long-time illegal growers in Humboldt County (where most of the weed in the US is grown) to legitimize their businesses. This may seem like a great option for growers, but in reality it's more complicated than that.

The Daily Word in Mindful Cops, Time Space Distortions and Inky's Escape

The Daily Word

Inky the octopus managed to pull off a daring escape from a New Zealand aquarium by squeezing through a gap at the top of his tank and slithering eight feet across the floor to a drain pipe that led to the ocean. Gangsta!

New Mexican's Steve Terrell tells us how the state's Republicans are embracing the idea of legal pot. I have to go knock wood real quick and throw a salt shaker over my shoulder with my fingers and toes crossed. Excuse me.

NASA has publicly stated that so-called “Planet 9” is not affecting the orbit of the Cassini space probe. Nevertheless, everyone in the tin-foil hat community already knows it's the long-awaited return of Niburu, the rogue planet. And aliens.


Holly Holm threw out the first pitch at yesterday's Isotopes game as part of a fund-raising event for the Boys and Girls club. No one is blaming the loss of the team's winning streak on her outside pitch. No one.

Check out these Canadian cops meditating. That's right. Peel Regional Police are trying out some new training methods. Somebody needs to pass this on to APD.

A dark matter dwarf galaxy was discovered hiding inside a space time distortion. If you understood that sentence, you might be a character from a bad sci-fi novel.

Still reeling from two violent earthquakes, some Japanese residents were surprised to find their streets filling up with a mysterious foam.

Check out these two assholes claiming to be APD and kicking in a person's door before robbing them. Both men were armed and brazen as hell. There's some pretty good shots of the creeps, so take a look and see if you know them.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #266: There has been an earthquake during the night.

I wake up, get out of bed and leave the bedroom. As I close the door, I notice that it's crooked. I look at the east wall and it's full of cracks. I wake G. She pushes a hole right through the wall with her hand. There has been an earthquake during the night. She proceeds to push the whole wall down. Bricks begin to fall everywhere and I tell her to look out. Outside, I joke with the other displaced neighbors: "We're all producers, but this is just shit." My observation falls flat.
