close Video Right-leaning states may legalize marijuana this November A number of right-leaning states are making an effort to legalize recreational marijuana by putting it on the ballot box Since Colorado and Washington became the first states to fully legalize marijuana for recreational purposes in 2012, a green wave has swept across the country as more states OK marijuana use on at least some level.

The Northern Ireland Secretary said in March she was “minded” to reduce MLA salaries by almost a third, to reflect the fact the devolved institutions have not sat for around 18 months. But with a definitive move still to materialise three months down the line, Mrs Bradley has faced accusations of dithering. Many assembly members acknowledge they should be paid less than their £49,500 salary because they are not fulfilling their roles as legislators. In March, the Northern Ireland Secretary said she could cut the pay packet to £35,888 – a 27.5% reduction recommended by an independent review carried out by former assembly … [Read more...] about Ministers must take care of legal technicalities before cutting MLA pay, says Bradley
