Weed-Whacker Report

There have been a few significant developments with marijuana laws recently. 
  • The Department of Justice outlined new policies to allow the sale and cultivation of marijuana on Native American lands.
  • Cromnibus moved to block outright marijuana legalization in Washington D.C.
  • Cromnibus provided broad protections to states that legalize medical and recreational marijuana. 
  • Nebraska and Oklahoma sue Colorado over marijuana legalization.
Hey Nebraska and Oklahoma Republicans, whatever happened to state's rights?

Meanwhile my soon to be legally married husband and I wish you all a very happy and joyful solstice! We'll be hanging with our buddy Bruce*!

*The 1970s T.V. show The Incredible Hulk changed the name of the main character "Bruce Banner" to "David Banner" because Bruce was considered a stereotypically gay name. Betty will be crushed!


  1. Now I understand! Batman was actually gay!!! "Meanwhile, back at Wayne Manor."

  2. A confirmed bachelor in the 60s running around the city in colorful tights? He might as well be Tony Randall!

  3. True fact, my husband and I wore our Superman and Green Lantern t-shirts for our original commitment ceremony back in 2000.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
