    Marijuana is legal in some states, but, unless I’m mistaken, there’s a federal law that outlaws it. If someone were ever sued for marijuana use, wouldn’t the judge have to go by the federal law, since it has precedence over state law?

    Only a couple of nights ago on one of the late night talk shows, one of the guests was one Jenny Slate, who’d just expanded, into a full-length film, a short film she’d made called Marcel the Shell with Shoes On. I believe it opens in theaters tonight. Truth may be stranger than fiction.
