Sweet 16 And The Electoral College. Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley has filed an amendment that would lower the national minimum voting age from 18 to 16, adding millions to the eligible voter rolls.

Neither seems to be happening in Massachusetts where the first recreational pot shop in the Boston area is set to open this weekend in Brookline where the traffic cones are already out and people are mapping routes to avoid route 9. What is raking in the money though are cannabis jelly beans...Was legalizing pot a mistake?
