The state of Maryland has legalized recreational marijuana.

On Tuesday, legislators in the Free State amended the State Constitution by approving the use of marijuana for those who are 21 and over.

Reportedly, many were happy with this decision because they claimed that the sale of cannabis allows for more tax revenue.

Those who opposed it fear that with the introduction of legal marijuana, the drug could eventually land in the hands of children.

19 states in the U.S. allow recreational marijuana use. 37 states permit medical use only.

The new law is to take effect next year July.

The Georgia Senate race between Republican Herschel Walker and Democrat Raphaël Warnock is heading to a runoff.

“We’re in a fight, are we not?” said Walker. “We’re in a fight, but a god is a good god, is he not? And he put us here for a reason. And we’re here to win this election, are we not?”

When speaking to a crowd in Atlanta, Walker acknowledged the tight race but expressed confidence in his chances. 

“I don’t come to lose,” Walker said. “And I told you he’s going to be tough to beat. He’s going to be tough to beat. But let me tell you why he got around Georgia here. So, I want to tell you, if you can hang in, hanging out a little bit longer, just hang in there a little bit longer. Because something good, it takes a while to get better and is going to get better. So, I wanted to thank you guys for hanging in there. If you some of you have to go home, you can wake up tomorrow morning and see that the new senator for the great state of Georgia is Herschel Walker.”

As of Wednesday morning, Warnock is leading Walker 49.4% to 48.5% by a margin of 35,000 votes or less.

Since Georgia law requires a candidate to garner 50% of the vote in order to win an election, the pair will face off again on December 6th.

UPDATED 10:37 AM PT – Wednesday, November 9, 2022

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says Americans have demanded a new direction for the country as control of the lower chamber is still being determined amid several close races nationwide.

“Republicans will work with anyone who is willing to join us to deliver this new direction that Americans have demanded,” McCarthy said. “But there’s no time to waste. Our work begins now. Let’s get America back on track.”

During remarks Tuesday night in Washington D.C., the GOP leader expressed optimism that the party will emerge with the majority, saying it’s clear they are going to take the House back.

No party has yet been projected to take the majority. Close races in many states including California, Arizona and Nevada have yet to be called.

However, McCarthy is confident Americans are ready for change on Capitol Hill.

“The American people are ready for a majority that will offer a new direction, that will put Americans back on track,” he said. “Republicans are ready to deliver it. It’s a new direction towards an economy that is strong, where you can fill up your tank, feed your family, where your paychecks grow and not shrink. A new direction towards a nation that is safe, where communities are protected, law enforcement is respected and criminals are prosecuted. A new direction toward a future that’s built on freedom, where children come first and are taught to dream big. And a new direction towards a government that is accountable, where government works for you instead of against you.”

McCarthy’s comments come as a number of races could take days to be resolved.

Ron Johnson comes out on top in Wisconsin’s Senate race.

On the campaign trail, Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said he is committed to ending the dysfunction of the Washington establishment.

The Trump-endorsed Republican said he set his sights on a third term in the upper chamber after watching the federal government take a tyrannical approach to governing during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Johnson affirmed that he’s motivated to undo the damage done by Democrats and reunite the country.

The Senators focus moved toward growing the economy as well as economic opportunity and creating good jobs. The Senator believes that the people of Wisconsin deserve to keep more money rather than sending it to Washington bureaucrats.

One of the largest differences between Johnson and his opponent Lt. Governor Mandela Barnes (D-Wis.) is Johnson’s commitment to fight against the Democrat agenda in Washington.

“He’s (Barnes) trying to pretend he’s a moderate or he’s a radical leftist that thinks the founding of America was awful, he thinks our national parks are racist” Johnson said during a September interview with Fox News. “It’s unbelievable the kind of grievance and resentment he holds for America yet he wants to be a U.S. Senator.”

Barnes is a Milwaukee native who decided to run for office in 2013 after becoming frustrated with the lack of action against issues that affected working people and the middle class. He served as a State Representative for the 11th district from 2013 to 2017 and went on to become Wisconsin’s first Black Lt. Governor in 2018.

Former President Barack Obama joined the campaign trail to stump for Barns at a rally in October. Barnes said Obama’s 2004 speech at the Democrat National Convention was one of the reasons that inspired him to get into politics.
