Daily Roundup (today’s): UFCW endorses Prop 19; Medical Marijuana Inc. Rents Pontiac Silverdome

1. The 200,000 strong United Food and Commercial Workers, Western States Council (UFCW WSC) came out in support of Prop 19, further blurring party lines on the issue after U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein voiced her opposition. Feinstein suggests if Prop 19 passes employers will have to permit workers peddling pot candy bars at the office, and Prop 19 will prevent bus and trucking companies from requiring their drivers to be drug-free. Proponents say she’s lying. Peter Hecht with the SacBee has Feinstein’s full argument. … 2. The tarnished, defunct Pontiac Silverdome (capacity 80,000) in Michigan has been rented out to Medical Marijuana Inc for “the largest cannabis/wellness event ever held in the Midwest.” The Silverdome, built for $55.7 million in taxpayer money 35 years ago, sold for $583,000 last November. Go, Lions! More news after the jump.
