This new bill would legalize weed in Canada

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is trying to change the maple leaf at the center of his nation's flag into a pot leaf.  That's not true. Although you could see how it might happen?

Anyway, for real, Trudeau's march to legal recreational weed has officially begun.  SEE ALSO: Colorado town caters to the lazy with its first drive-thru pot shop The prime minister revealed legislation on Thursday that would make it legal to recreationally smoke marijuana across Canada. There are roughly one bajillion details to figure out before Canadians will be able to purchase weed and smoke up just like people buy alcohol and drink, but this is where it starts. If successful, Canada and Uruguay would be the only countries to completely legalize recreational pot as a consumer product across their nations.

Uber just added a feature to protect you from creepy drivers

2017 hasn't exactly been kind to Uber, and while the company and its CEO can't seem to get out of each others' way, day-to-day operations continue to march on. Today, the Uber apps gets an all-new feature that, unlike almost every tidbit of Uber news so far this year, might actually make its users pretty happy. Starting today, riders who summon an Uber to their location can specify their pick-up and drop-off points without using physical street addresses, in an effort to boost user privacy and cut back on the creepiness of letting a driver know where you live.

With the new location options, if you don't feel like having an Uber driver meet you at a specific address you can choose any cross-street, including pre-determined pick-up spots at most major intersections. It's essentially an easier, faster way to obfuscate your comings and goings from the random drivers who show up […]

Sessions announces revamp of immigration law system. Will it help?

While President Trump’s promises to crackdown on illegal immigration have put his administration at odds with immigrants and their advocates, a new Justice Department policy could bring additional resources to an overtaxed legal system burdened with a backlog of cases. At a Tuesday visit to the US-Mexico border, Attorney General Jeff Sessions called for a revamping of the immigration law system, including an $80-million plan that would add 75 additional teams of judges to immigration court system. Today, the average detainee might wait 677 days for a hearing, leading officials to go around the court system in some cases, opting to expedite the deportation and send immigrants back to their countries of origin without a day in court.

Killer whales toss boats like toys while hunting a sea lion

A couple of boaters found themselves directly in the middle of a pod of orca whales hunting a sea lion off of the coast of Bowyer Island in British Columbia, Canada.  According to Viral Hog, the man filming the incident spotted a few whale watching boats and went to go check out the action. After observing the orcas from a distance for 30 minutes, things took a turn when a sea lion sought refuge under one of the boats. The orcas bashed the boats like toys in a bathtub while trying to hunt the sea lion. The boaters were fearful that they would harm the animals with the propellers on their boats if they tried to get away, so the boats stayed put until a guide on the whale watching boat suggested that they move closer to the island so the sea lion could get to safety.  Thankfully for the […]
