thefilmarchive.org October 6, 1996 The United States presidential election of 1996 was a contest between the Democratic national ticket of President Bill Clinton of Arkansas and Vice President Al Gore of Tennessee and the Republican national ticket of former Senator Bob Dole of Kansas for President and former Housing Secretary Jack Kemp of New York for Vice President. Businessman Ross Perot ran as candidate for the Reform Party with economist Pat Choate as his running mate; he received less media attention and was excluded from the presidential debates and, while still obtaining substantial results for a third-party candidate, by US standards, did not renew his success of the 1992 election. Clinton benefited from an economy which recovered from the early 1990s recession and a relatively stable world stage. On November 5, 1996, President Clinton went on to win re-election with a substantial margin in the popular vote and electoral college. In 1995, the Republican Party was riding high on the gains made in the 1994 congressional elections. In those elections, the Republicans, led by Newt Gingrich, captured the majority of seats in the United States House of Representatives for the first time in 40 years and the majority of seats in the US Senate for the first time in eight years. With the advantage of incumbency, Bill Clinton’s path to renomination by the Democratic Party was uneventful. At the 1996 Democratic National Convention, Clinton and incumbent Vice President Al …

Video Rating: 4 / 5
By ROBIN BLOWHARD DRBB | www.youtube.com/DrBigBudz Some call it medicine, while others say it’s an illegal drug. No matter what you call it marijuana is at the center of a hot debate. FOX 2 is weeding through this controversial issue. What exactly is Michigan’s medical marijuana law? Michigan is one of only 14 states where medical marijuana is legal. The law passed two years ago, but there’s still plenty of confusion. It’s been the focus of police raids and drug busts for decades. Marijuana illegal to grow, sell and use, but Michigan voters changed all that. They made pot legal for medical use. So, if it’s legal, why are clinics being raided and people being arrested? “They are charging me with manufacturing and delivering marijuana,” said Candace Teichman, who was arrested in a raid. “I operated under the state law. I was checking every cardholder that came through that door.” “One of the places there were loose alligators running around protecting the product. This is Michigan. This isn’t a Cheech and Chong movie,” said Oakland County Sheriff Mich ael Bouchard. The Oakland County Sheriff’s Department and other law enforcement agencies have gone after dispensaries because they’re not even mentioned in the law. They say those facilities can’t legally exist, but lawyers for the clinics disagree. Both sides are left to battle it out in court. “This isn’t fair to us. We the people voted for this,” one woman told FOX 2. “It shouldn’t have to be done in a back room somewhere …

Medical marijuana: A glowing grow room of its own
Joanne Clarke, a legal secretary in her late 50s, leads the way down a pale green hallway in her modest Costa Mesa home, past a small guest room on the right and a blue tiled bathroom on the left. At the end of the hall, she opens a door, pushes aside a thick black curtain and ducks inside. “Isn’t this wild?” she says, gesturing to the high-tech marijuana grow room she and her husband recently …
