[California County News]

Officials with the California Bureau of Cannabis Control have made a final decision on one of the most controversial issues involving commercial pot, much to the chagrin of the state’s cities and counties.

[Steve Frank]
The November 6 election results in California were a disaster no matter what way you look at it. For Republicans it reaffirmed that we are on the wrong track, that our messaging is severely amiss. For Californians generally, their choice has been whittled down to a single party, a party that does not resemble anything the Founding Fathers would recognize.
