Mr Sarkozy is being questioned as part of an investigation into “irregularities” in election campaign financing, a French court source told Reuters.
Even though marijuana is legal in many states, that doesn’t necessarily mean people are allowed to use it. Many workplaces still refuse to allow their employees to use the drug and test to make sure they don’t. But in Maine, that could be a thing of the past.
The state of Maine has become the first state to prevent employers from discriminating their workers based on marijuana use. Starting today, employers cannot punish their workers nor refuse to hire someone based on marijuana use done outside of the workplace.
Use of the drug or coming to work under the influence of marijuana can still be punished, but Maine’s Labor Department says a positive rest result for cannabis is not sufficient to prove someone showed up to work while high.
The state’s Labor Department also removed marijuana from the list of drugs employers can test job applicants for.
It’s somewhat ironic that Maine would become the first state to enact these types of protections, considering they’re not technically a state where marijuana is legal. While voters approved a ballot initiative in November 2016 to legalize cannabis recreationally, the state’s government has been unable to pass a bill that would implement the law. But these laws will still protect people who use the drug medicinally.
The issue of marijuana use and the workplace is one that hasn’t been fully worked out in legalized states. While it seems many employers are relaxing rules on the drug, there are still very few protections for workers who use it. And this is particularly harmful for people who use the drug to treat serious medical issues.
Perhaps Maine’s new policy will become a starting point for state’s everywhere.
Is OJ Simpson Stalking Women at Grape Street Wine Bar in Downtown Summerlin?
OJ Simpson, who was found liable for the deaths of two people, and then convicted of Robbery and Kidnapping, has found himself a regular place to stalk women. Grape Street Wine bar in Downtown Summerlin hasn’t just allowed him to go in the place, but according to insiders, has invited him to be there even though he is a convicted felon and a danger to women. Numerous photos of him trying to pick up women and socialize have been posted by concerned patrons.
We called Grape Street Wine Bar several times and spoke to employees and one guy who said he was the manager, but refused to give me his name.
One employee who didn’t want to be named told me point blank that she was “scared to work there” and that they employees have made it clear that they do not feel comfortable, but the management is “friendly” with OJ Simpson and doesn’t seem to care that he is drinking and getting drunk.
The manager at first refused to give comment, but after prodding him and telling him that his employees were concerned and that women were scared to even go to Downtown Summerlin knowing that a convicted felon might be trying to harm them, he opened up — but wasn’t nice.
He made it clear that OJ Simpson is allowed, and when I mentioned that women were scared and that I might come down to interview him and patrons, he said that he would kick anyone out that “has an issue with Simpson.” When I mentioned that I was writing an article, and then introduced myself after his tirade against women and those who don’t like OJ, he hung up.
Reminder that OJ Simpson is also severely deranged, even according to the Kardashians when he threatened to kill himself at their house.
OJ said, “I’m going to kill myself in this room,” according to Robert Kardashian who responded, ‘You can’t.This is my daughter’s bedroom.”
“My little girl Kim sleeps here,” he pleaded. “I can’t have my little girl in this bedroom, and every time I come in here, I’m going to see your body lying in this. You can’t do that.”
Ex-French president Nicolas Sarkozy arrested over campaign financing
Former French president Nicolas Sarkozy is being held by police in connection to alleged campaign funding from late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi.
The amount would be more than double the legal spending limit in French elections at that time, which was €21m.
Alleged payments would also violate French laws on foreign financing and declaring the source of campaign funds.
Mr Sarkozy and his campaign manager have repeatedly denied accepting money from Libya.
According to Le Monde, this is the first time Mr Sarkozy has been questioned in relation to this investigation, which was opened in April 2013.
He can be held for up to 48 hours and presented to a magistrates’ court for indictment if police seek charges.
Mr Sarkozy has already been ordered to stand trial in a separate case, concerning the financing of his 2012 re-election campaign, when he lost to Francois Hollande.
In March 2011, Saif al Islam Gaddafi, the late dictator’s son, told Euronews: “Sarkozy has to give back the money he accepted from Libya to finance his electoral campaign. We financed his campaign and we have the proof…
“The first thing we’re demanding is that this clown gives back the money to the Libyan people.”
New Criminal Copyright Troll Destination360 Attempts Blackmail
You’ve heard of Righthaven? After personally making sure that they were sued and prosecuted, it seems that someone else is playing a game. Unfortunately for them, they tried to blackmail me, and when I refused to pay their “fees” they started to slander me. They probably should have run a simple google.
Now there is another company doing this: In the first time in 20 years of publishing, this guy has to be one of the worst scumbags ever. Despite hundreds of pages on Google about him being nothing more than a copyright troll who seems to be registering images he doesn’t even own.
Here’s the problem: They don’t actually own the images, but have been “registering” them illegally with the copyright office in bulk, claiming ownership.
This is a federal felony, and I think they know it. It’s why they are not sending DCMA take down requests, as required by law to even sue. They themselves “admit” in message boards that the images are being distributed by other people but claim it’s their ownership of the images, without any actual proof they took it.
Making this worse, they are using a fake IP phone number and fake address (post office box) in Nevada, hiding their true identity from the Police and FBI, who according to my source, have been trying to contact him for “years” about the fake legal letters that they have been sending. Unfortunately, no one actually picks up the phone or responds to letters– leading me to believe that this may an blackmail offshore operation to scam people.
