by MFI News

Like many of you, I was eager to see if President Trump would make good on his pledge to nominate a conservative Supreme Court Justice to replace the late Antonin Scalia.  I was therefore very happy to hear the president announce last night that he is nominating Judge Neil Gorsuch.  Several weeks ago, I had […]

My wife showed me this article last night.  Apparently, two middle school kids in Framingham had to be hospitalized after ingesting marijuana-laced “edibles” on the school bus.  This is exactly one of the scenarios we’ve been warning about with the new legalization of recreational marijuana.  The pot industry deliberately infuses candy in order to attract children, and it does […]
