Though out PA Rep. Brian Sims is no longer running for Congress, his place in our hearts is secured with some fierce advocacy for medical marijuana.

Speaking on the floor in support of the legalization of medical marijuana for prescription in PA, he laid the smackdown on his opposition and made us a bit sad that we won’t see him seeking a more national stage anytime soon.

Seriously.

He takes down the haters:

“I’m disturbed by a lot of what I’m hearing from the opposition. Made up statistics about the deaths that medical marijuana has not caused and co-opting tragedies and accidents that had nothing to do with medicinal marijuana to somehow justify not giving the medicine to kids.”

And puts patient suffering in context for those who simply don’t get it:

“We’re not able to cure or treat every illness, but we’re able to create an opportunity for roughly 225,000 Pennsylvanians to improve the quality of their life. As legislators we cannot deny patients the possibility to alleviate some of this suffering. A suffering that few of us could understand.”

Watch his full speech below, and start fundraising for your SimsforPresident2032 SuperPAC immediately.

  This job has changed my life in so many ways. I’ve never played a character that hit so close to the bone. It felt like an extension of myself taking place in the present. Trying to figure out what it means to be gay. Patrick and I are from the same generation of gay [...]

by Tim Winfred September 28, 2016

Yeah, we know most people aren’t the biggest fan of RuPaul‘s Drag Race season 2 winner Tyra Sanchez – she was controversial during her time on the show, and her post-show career hasn’t been a smooth ride either. Nevertheless, her new track Vogue is seriously hot, and worth a listen. The song’s beat is reminiscent of [...]
