Legalizing recreational cannabis at the state level does not increase substance use disorders or use of other illicit drugs among adults and, in fact, may reduce alcohol-related problems, according to new CU Boulder research.

Public money for public schools. If one had to point to a single issue as to what made America great, it just might be our public school education system. It guarantees every child the opportunity to advance at one’s own level with no restriction on what one might achieve, providing they have the ability to maintain reasonable standards of productivity. Even though America’s most challenging period, Jim Crow, when black children were segregated and shunted aside to ‘Separate, but equal’ schools, (Which were separate, but not at all equal) a basic level of learning was realized. *Public* funding (tax dollars) provided the wherewithal to fund *public* *schools,* and although challenged by problems that beset any large institution it did achieve, according to the Census Bureau, a literacy rate of 86%, at near the top of all the nations of the world. But now a dual education proposal is challenging the public system all across America; the threat? Vouchers! The scheme is as simple as this. The proponents intend to siphon off tax dollars meant for public education and divert it to private academies and prep schools that cater to the well-to-do, and the wealthy. They hire public relations firms to concoct ridiculous stories about a grassroots movement supporting the plot, when in fact right-wing plutocrats fund the program in order to further the separations between the rich and the poor. Each day we read about heroic, *underpaid,* teachers and administrators reaching into their own pockets just to provide the basics, pencils, and paper, for their already underfunded schools. But now, with pristine arrogance, and even before those items can be procured, they want the public dollars to go to travel lacrosse teams and racing shells for their already privileged children. And to make matters worse, there is no accountability for those funds. Whereas public schools have to meet certain standards of learning, give tests, adhere to standards, and face sanctions if goals aren’t reached, no such rules apply to most voucher projects. *Public* tax dollars for *public* schools and not for the enrichment of *private* institutions!

TO PROTECT YOUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE YOU MUST VOTE. Iowans, there is only one way to preserve the right to abortion: your vote! The litmus test for everyone seeking public office should be, ‘Do you, or do you not support a woman’s right to choose?’ From dog catcher to governor, from school board member to president of the PTA, from any elective office where fascists can work to deny human rights, you must deny them the power and keep them out of the public sector and out of the public eye. Right-Wing radicals and religious zealots of every stripe will try every tactic to deny you your rights. From rewriting state constitutions to ballot initiatives to phrasing legislation where one must vote ‘No’ to actually cast a ‘Yes’ vote, there is no level to which they will not stoop, up to, and including denying you the right to vote, at all! You don’t have to organize, you don’t have to contribute, you don’t have to stand on a soapbox – all you have to do is vote.

Parks and Recreation voucher?My family has chosen to join the Urbandale Golf & Country Club after realizing that the municipal, county and state park systems simply were not fulfilling our recreational needs. We will no longer be using the public parks, and accordingly are entitled to a publicly funded voucher to assist with the payment of our private country club dues similar to what private school attendees in Iowa will soon receive. Does anyone know how this works? Is it simply a refundable credit on our state income tax or is there some special form that we have to file?

School Vouchers | Currently in Ohio“This voucher program effectively cripples the public school districts’ resources,” plaintiffs wrote in their complaint, “creates an ‘uncommon’, or private, system of schools unconstitutionally funded by taxpayers, siphons hundreds of millions of dollars of taxpayer funds into private (and mostly religious) institutions, and discriminates against minority students by increasing segregation in Ohio’s public schools.” COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — More than 200 public school districts challenging Ohio’s school voucher program can continue to trial, a Franklin County judge ruled earlier this month. https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/columbus/ohios-crippling-private-school-vouchers-will-see-trial-for-lawsuit-judge-rules/ >>>>> This will set a precedent for what's going to happen here.

I emailed Grassley because of his NO vote on marriage equality. This is his response.I appreciate hearing of your support for the Respect for Marriage Act. This bill would repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, which was passed in 1996 and established a federal definition of “marriage” as a legal union between one man and one woman. In United States v. Windsor, the Supreme Court held in 2013 that this section of the Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional. Then, in 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that it is unconstitutional under the Fourteenth Amendment for a state not to perform same-sex marriages or not to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states. The Respect for Marriage Act would prohibit a state from not recognizing a marriage between two individuals validly entered into in another state on the basis of the sex, race, ethnicity, or national origin of those individuals. It would also require that the federal government recognize every marriage between two people that was validly entered into under the laws of any state. The legislation would also allow either the Justice Department or those affected by alleged violations to sue in federal court. The Respect for Marriage Act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on July 19, 2022. On November 16, 2022, the Senate voted 62-37 to advance the bill. I voted against advancing the measure. Final votes are expected to take place the week after Thanksgiving. But I want all Iowans to know that interracial and same-sex marriages are not under threat, and I don’t support reversing the federal recognition of these marriages. To be clear, there is no effort in Congress or the courts to overturn Loving v. Virginia, which recognizes interracial marriages, or Obergefell v. Hodges, which recognizes same-sex marriages. Justice Stephen Breyer, who retired from the Supreme Court earlier this year, recently explained that he did not think the Court would overturn those cases. Nor do I believe that the Supreme Court would reverse these cases even if they were challenged, and I don’t believe it is prudent for politicians to imply otherwise in order to fabricate unnecessary discontent in our nation. My vote against this bill is not about opposing the recognition of same-sex or interracial marriages; it’s about defending the religious liberty enshrined in our founding documents. The bill does not address religious liberty concerns raised by social service providers, including foster care organizations, serving their communities consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs. Many groups expressed concern that the bill, including the private right of action, would increase efforts to harass or undermine those organizations. Nor does the bill address concerns with lawsuits against wedding vendors who wish to provide services to or participate in only weddings that are consistent with their sincerely held religious beliefs regarding marriage. Moreover, many organizations raised concerns that the bill does not adequately protect the tax-exempt status of religious organizations. The bill’s sponsors rejected proposals to add language that would have provided protections for religious liberty by allowing people to sue the federal government for discriminating against them, including for taking away an organization’s tax-exempt status, because of their sincerely held religious beliefs. This legislation is simply unnecessary. No one seriously thinks Obergefell is going to be overturned, so we don’t need legislation. You can read my full statement on this bill here: https://www.grassley.senate.gov/news/news-releases/while-same-sex-and-interracial-marriages-are-not-at-risk-religious-institutions-would-be-under-senate-bill. Thank you again for contacting me. Please do not hesitate to reach out if I can be of any help in the future. Keep in touch.

Hy-Vee and Republican politicsI recall Hy-Vee's CEO referring to the company literally as "a Republican company." I can definitely find plenty of news about Republican campaign contributions via a PAC and related news, but I can't find where I saw this specific quote ("a Republican company"). Does anyone else remember this? Could you point me to a source? (Or am I mistaken?) **Edit:** I'm hoping to keep this discussion to just facts about what Hy-Vee as said or done, not a discussion about whether that's good or bad.

Iowa Governor Reynolds fiscal policy has her ranked the top governor in the USA.>Kim Reynolds started her career in public service as a county treasurer. She also served as a state senator and Iowa lieutenant governor. She became governor after Terry Branstad stepped down in 2017, and then she won election in 2018. Reynolds says that her politics are based on the ideas of limited government, personal responsibility, and individual initiative.[98](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022#_ednref98) As governor, she has translated those beliefs into lean budgeting and major tax reforms, earning her the highest score on this report. > >Reynolds signed tax reforms into law in 2018. The reforms cut the top individual income tax rate from 8.98 percent to 8.53 percent, with a further cut to 6.5 percent and tax bracket consolidation if revenue targets are met. The reforms also cut the top corporate tax rate from 12 percent to 9.8 percent. In 2020, Reynolds proposed further reforms that would have raised the retail sales tax and cut the income tax, but the pandemic led to the shelving of that plan. > >In 2021, Reynolds resumed her tax-reform drive. She signed SF 619 to speed up the phase-in of prior income tax cuts and also signed legislation to eliminate Iowa’s inheritance tax by 2025.[99](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022#_ednref99) In 2022, she approved HF 2317 to consolidate individual income tax rates into a single-rate structure and phase down the rate to just 3.9 percent by 2026.[100](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022#_ednref100) A 3.9 percent flat tax will be an impressive change from the nine-bracket system and top rate of 8.98 percent that Reynolds faced when she entered office. > >The 2022 legislation also phases down the corporate tax rate from 9.8 percent to 5.5 percent if revenue targets are met. In her proposed budget this year, Reynolds noted, “Corporate tax levels directly affect economic activity in states, and those with more competitive structures and rates are in much better positions to grow existing businesses and attract new ones.”[101](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022#_ednref101) > >In her 2022 state of the state address, Reynolds said, “All of these tax cuts have one thing in common—they reward work. . . . That’s never been more important, as the country is facing an unprecedented worker shortage.” She also discussed tax cuts on retirement income that she approved: “For the vast majority of retired Iowans—those who rely on their 401K, IRA, or pension—that’s not just an income-tax cut; it’s a full income-tax repeal.”[102](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022#_ednref102) > >Reynolds has been not only a tax reformer but also a lean budgeter. Iowa general fund spending has grown at just a 2.3 percent annual average rate since she entered office in 2017. [https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022](https://www.cato.org/white-paper/fiscal-policy-report-card-americas-governors-2022) ​ You can downvote this all you want but the facts are the facts.

Welcome to hell.This has all taken place in the last 3 months. 1. I tried calling Iowa Green Americorps for their free home energy assessment and weatherization program twice over 2 weeks, no one ever returned the call. 2. I tried calling the Iowa Utilities Board over some shit Alliant was pulling, not only are they a totally feckless organization, anytime you try to call, after about 5 minutes it says "due to high call volume, we cannot take your call at this time". 3. I used to be able to see my primary doctor in a week, now it's 30-45 days out for an appointment. ER is unable to help for anything non-serious, they say to go to urgent care, who don't really have much to help you with either, they will just say "follow up with PCP". Seems like Iowa's healthcare regimen is "if your not dying, wait a couple months to see if it goes away, then we will send you to a specialist who is probably a month out as well". Two doctors have left my clinic "unexpectedly". 4. The dentist I was seeing at the UofI "left unexpectedly" and now it's going to be a few months before I can be seen by another one. Guess my filings weren't that important.. 5. Mental health doctor suspected I had autism and wanted to test me for it, there's currently a YEAR LONG WAITING LIST..not making this up..a fucking YEAR LONG waiting list. This state is losing good teachers, doctors and other professionals left and right. I own a home so it would be too hard to just "up and leave", but I'm really worried about the state of our state.

Iowa is now a red state.I know a lot of people don’t recognize it, but after this election, it’s all but assured. Sure, we went for Obama in ‘08 and ‘12 but those times are long gone. I am very concerned about this for multiple reasons, but the main one being that I am an aspiring teacher. Republicans, especially Reynolds, like taking away the rights of public workers (apart from law enforcement, notably) and it makes me sad to be an Iowan. I don’t want to give up my dream of teaching but our politicians make it harder to want to be a teacher. I want to hold on but it’s as if Reynolds is stepping on the one hand keeping me on the cliff.

If you want to know how broken our voting system is...Total IA Dem votes for House (approx.) 524,000 Total IA Rep votes for House (approx.) 674,000 Total IA votes for House (approx.) 1,198,000 ​ Dem Vote Percentage 43.7% **Dem Seat Wins 0 out of 4.** Rep Vote Percentage 56.3% **Rep Seat Wins 4 out of 4.** ​ Ames is in IA-4, when it should be IA-3 with Des Moines. But it's "cracked and packed" so that Ames is shoved with super conservative NW IA. The state is divided in a way to make it hard for the Dems when there are many Dem voters in the state. It's all about the way the districts are drawn. That determines the outcome of an election more than any other factor.

Iowexas, Itex, Texawa, Fiowa? It's official, need to rename the state.Maga runs through the veins of a greater percentage of Iowa’s voters. Conned by the Don. Even the only person with any morals at the capital, Rob Sands, gone. Now Reynolds can do more crooked shi*. Iowa is not a progressive state with education and morals as priorities. Money is more important than ethics. We certainly don't represent the native Americans we were named after. Will we have continued concern for voter restrictions, school restrictions, book banning, discrimination against women, discrimination against sexual orientation, water and air pollution, continued firearm promotion? Are we more like the early 1900s or the later part? Other than continued crop production increases, Iowa can't claim much progress. Thank god most of the nation isn't blinded by maga. Although maga hasn't started screaming fake election, have they? Owatex, Where the governor wants a hidden gun in every Republican's pocket, women barefoot and pregnant (they can wear breadsacks on their feet), homos sent away, and waterways protected more like China than Europe.

Abortions banned and guns for everyone - what does Iowa GOP run on?So we're basically at the point of abortions are banned, and guns for everyone. These have been two of the main vectors for ginning up GOP voters, keeping them angry and energized. It's a great tactic, and obviously successful. So now that they've succeeded to the point that both of these subjects have constitutional and Iowa Supreme court protections, how can the GOP continue to campaign on these two subjects? Neither were in danger before and now they are strongly protected - the GOP can't claim that these are still "under attack by the extreme left". How about "soft on crime" - they'll keep up with that.The "open border". But dang, I think they have gotten exactly what they wanted, to their detriment in the "energizing the base" category.

Notice ServedRepublicans, today I voted a complete Democratic ticket. I have been a Republican for over 50 years. Ever since I could first vote. But you lost me. Not one of you, at any level, stood up to the stupidity and insanity that has become the national and state level of the Republican party. From Trump down to Kim Reynolds, you have pushed the boundaries of human rights. And therefore, those other minor roles in government, local ones, have followed like lemmings. If you are a judge, an auditor or whatever, and you had the Republican tag, I voted AGAINST you. Because you stood silent. And yes, if you are a Libertarian, I voted against you because you don't know reality. Edit: To clarify, this is the first time I voted locally R. I haven't voted R nationally for several elections. It is interesting to see the reactions here. Some congratulate me for "coming around" while some chastise me for being stupid to begin with. I can see how the latter people would interact in their daily life. Telling their kids, their fellow workers and strangers that they are dumb for making past decisions. Acting superior. Tearing down and not building up. But a lot redditors are like that. But a lot of redditors are good too. Let's just hope we get out of this sh\*t mess we are heading into.

We used to care about people here, and care about education but now it’s all about owning the liberals. When in reality you’re just owning yourself and hurting democracy. /rant

2 Freshmen at Iowa State Uni created a Clothing brandI've recently stumbled upon many people talking about Tempus the clothing brand. I was curious myself what everyone was on about and figured out that 2 freshmen created a clothing brand with a lot of attraction and to be dead honest I really dig a lot of the clothing. I just purchased a hoodie and shirt to support them, but if you guys don't mind go check it out yourself and they are running a promo for 5 percent off if you use the promo code "5off" .
