New York & Illinois Governors Outline Their Plans to Legalize Weed1m42s

New York & Illinois Governors Outline Their Plans to Legalize Weed

  New York governor Andrew Cuomo outlined his plans to legalize weed the day after the governor of Illinois announced his plan. In his State of the State address delivered on January 15, he announced his plan to legalize cannabis in New York. “We have to do it in a way that creates an economic opportunity for poor communities and people who paid the price, and not for rich corporations who are going to come in to make a buck,” he stated. Under the plan, the cannabis industry will be regulated by an Office of Cannabis Management. It will legalize cannabis for adults age 21 or older. Cuomo is proposing a 20% state tax and two percent county tax on transfers from wholesalers to retailers, as well as a one-dollar-per-gram tax on dry flower and a twenty five cent per gram tax on trim for state-approved cultivators. Municipalities would have the ability to opt out of legal weed sales, but the administration estimates that legalizing weed for adult use will eventually generate approximately $300 million in annual tax revenue. On January 14, newly sworn-in Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker also announced plans to legalize cannabis in his state. A recent study found that legalization in Illinois would create 24,000 jobs.

Russian Startup StartRocket Wants To Put Billboard Ads In Space1m25s

Russian Startup StartRocket Wants To Put Billboard Ads In Space

This company wants to put billboards in space. The Russian startup StartRocket is making an effort to put billboard ads into low-Earth orbit, using a grid of tissue box-sized satellites called CubeSats. The CubeSats are able to unfurl Mylar sails to catch and reflect sunlight, creating a pixelated matrix to spell out words. “It’s human nature to advertise everything.” StarRocket CEO Vladilen Sitnikov stated to astronomy.com. “Brands [are] a beautiful part of humankind.” The display would be viewable in evening and morning twilight, when the cubes catch sunlight while the observer is in darkness. However, astronomers and dark-sky advocates think launching more satellites into space isn’t a great idea. “Launching art projects like this with no commercial, scientific, or national security value seems unwise,” The University of Michigan’s Patrick Seitzer explained. “There are over 20,000 objects with orbits in the official public catalog maintained by the U.S. Air Force. Less than 10 percent are active satellites — the rest are dead satellites, old rocket bodies, and parts of spacecraft.” Some astronomers also believe that the brightness of the ads could make it difficult to do astronomical research from the ground. But Sitnikov disputes this claim, saying the displays luminosity will only last six minutes.

Canada Plans to Welcome 1 Million More Immigrants by 2021

Canada will welcome one million more immigrants by 2021 to account for its aging population. Approximately one in five Canadians is an immigrant, and in 2017, 286,000 people became permanent residents. 44,000 of those who gained permanent resident status in 2017 were resettled refugees. Canada is now aiming to welcome roughly 350,000 immigrants each year. Over the past few years, the country has welcomed more than 50,000 Syrian refugees. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is even known for welcoming refugees personally at the airport. In January, the country welcomed asylum seeker Rahaf Al-Qunun who fled her family in Saudi Arabia. They previously welcomed high-profile Syrian refugee Hassan Al Kontar who lived in an airport for seven months before being granted asylum. “Canada again showing leadership: will welcome more than 1 million new immigrants, including refugees…because it is good for Canada and good for the world,” explained Norwegian Refugee Council secretary general Jan Egeland.
