Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 04:32

Buds are removed from a container at the "Oregon's Finest" medical marijuana dispensary in PortlandBy Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) - Supporters of a recreational marijuana ballot initiative in Oregon have raised $1 million in their effort to legalize, regulate and tax use of the drug by adults, campaign finance documents showed on Monday. The state said last month the initiative qualified for the November ballot, meaning Oregon could become only the third U.S. state after Colorado and Washington to allow recreational pot use. According to the campaign finance records released by the state, the largest donations by individuals came from out-of-state, with Philip Harvey, a Washington, D.C.-based libertarian activist, giving $150,000 to the legalization effort, and New York fragrance heir Henry van Ameringen giving $100,000. The group behind the legalization drive hopes to raise much more money before voters consider the issue, said Peter Zuckerman, spokesman for New Approach Oregon.

NYC jail routinely violates rights of teen inmates: DOJ

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/05/2014 - 04:20

Barbed wire fences surround a building on Rikers Island Correctional Facility in New YorkBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - The New York City Department of Correction has routinely violated the constitutional rights of male teenagers at the Rikers Island jail complex through a "culture of violence" that relies on beatings, the federal government said in a report released on Monday. The U.S. Justice Department said the multiyear probe had found a pattern of "conduct and practice" pervading the sprawling Rikers detention facility that violates the rights of young inmates. For adolescents, Rikers is a "broken institution," said Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for New York's Southern District. There was no immediate comment from the city's Department of Correction or from Mayor Bill de Blasio, to whom the report was addressed.
