A Philadelphia jury has ruled in favor of the Boy Scouts, meaning they will not be evicted from their home or forced to pay rent, at least for now.
Outside the courthouse, a lawyer for the Boy Scouts, Jason Gosselin, told Fox News the Scouts won on the most important issue, that of First Amendment rights. The jury found the city posed an unconstitutional condition on the organization by asking it to pay $200,000 annual rent on property it was leasing for a dollar a year, in a building the Scouts built and paid for themselves, all because the city felt the Scouts were in violation of Philadelphia’s anti-discrimination laws.

“What do you need to do to be able to be legalized? — see a doctor — that’s it? — yeah”
For all intents and purposes, marijuana is already legal here in California. Take the famous Venice Beach Boardwalk where we sit now, customers wander past sandwich-board signs with cannabis leaves painted prominently and college-aged kids encourage any and all to come on it and “see the cannabis doctor.”
According to one kid holding a sign on the street who offered me to enter, “It’s basically already legal. It’s very easy to go through the process and we are out here, picking people off the street to go into the doctor’s office. It’s not like they really have to look very hard to find to get it.”
