    Good, we need more senators like Mark Madsen to get this bill approved.

    After LDS church opposes medical marijuana bill, lawmaker will not back off

    Salt Lake City (KUTV) Utah Senator Mark Madsen said fighting old perceptions about pot have made his efforts to legalize medical marijuana an uphill battle. Then came another hurdle Friday when the Mormon Church said it opposed his bill.

    Still, Madsen, who is Mormon, said he won't back down because polls show most Utah residents support the proposed law. Plus, people with serious medical conditions could really use the pain relief.

    Dear BYU

    ESPN is not your ally and is not going to help you get into the Big 12. They have absolutely no financial incentive to do so. If BYU joins any conference, the contract with ESPN is over and BYU's rights belong to their conference. If anything, ESPN wants BYU to stay independent because it forces them to renew their ESPN contract giving the network a late night, midweek game to show. Once Boise State joined the Mountain West, no longer willing to prostitute themselves to ESPN for odd time-slot games, ESPN needed a partner for their late night booty call. Oddly enough, BYU jumped at this opportunity, spinning it to mean that BYU was a great draw when in reality, they were just a willing body there for a cash payment. Am I taking the hooker metaphor too far??

    That benefits BYU, but almost no one else on that list.

    Most of the better schools already are in better conferences than that would create. Also, you don't understand, NO ONE LIKES YOU!!!

    You guys never seem to get that, but that is the bottom line.

    Yes. Always good to see. Hope he lands at a good place.

    Over the last three games this season I focused on watching the WRs and I can honestly say that, with the exception of Covey, they all ran incredible lazy routes. I blame that on poor coaching, period. Kyle made the right moves in WR coaching this year. I think it will pay off because the talent is on campus to pull it off.

    Yep, there was no one on the team that was more frustrating that McClellon.

    He had all the tools, but could never pick up the system. He also struggled to make catches. He had the perfect opportunity when Covey went down and still couldn't take advantage of it. Maybe Holliday could have fixed that, or maybe he decided it was unfixable and suggested Delshawn look elsewhere.

    You can think what you want. The fact remains: It's boring. *sad trombone*

    Also, "sports sedan"? You can call a trailer park "upscale", but it's still a trailer park.

    He's being TIC. Only the most delusional of LDS faithful will argue that the LDS Church doesn't conspire with its gerrymandered politicians to influence the laws and government in Utah.

    The near-theocracy that governs this state conspires regularly on a variety of issues that they don't trust the general population to handle itself. Fighting against medical marijuana is just their latest nanny state, big government, theology-based decision.

    Unfortunately, the Supreme Court is unlikely to ever force their hand towards freedom and individual liberty like it recently did with gay marriage. Even after marijuana is federally decriminalized in the next few years, it will still be left up to individual states to decriminalize. I expect the regressive dinosaurs on North Temple to tell their minions in the legislature to fight it every step of the way.

    Helluva can of worms. What's next? Charge them with recruiting violations and its interpreted as religious oppression? Refusal schedule them home 'n home, and that's religious discrimination?

    If that kid was so worried about religious considerations, how'd he end up at Miami initially?

    If schools were smart, they'd blacklist them just for being a pain in the ass.
