Every two years, voters elect members for the two chambers of Congress: the Senate and House of Representatives. Each state has equal representation in the Senate with two senators each serving six-year terms. As for the House, the number of representatives vary state-by-state based on population, with each serving two-year terms. For example, New York has 27 representatives while Hawaii has two.
All members of the House and an estimated one-third of the Senate are up for re-election during midterm elections. The Republican party continues to have control over Congress after Tuesday's election, with a majority in both the Senate (51 Republican - 47 Democrat) and the House (238 Republican - 191 Democrat). In 2018, at the halfway point of the president's term, citizens will have the option to show their approval or disapproval by casting votes for members of Congress.
Generally speaking, midterm elections have a lower turnout than presidential elections. The 2014 election marked a 72-year low when only 36.4% of eligible voters showed up to cast ballots.Even though the turnout is typically smaller, these elections have political value โ€” Congress decides which laws get passed and which do not, thereby influencing our day-to-day lives.The 2018 midterm elections take place on Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018. American citizens 18 years of age and older at the time will be eligible to vote. Mark you calendars.

Although I don't smoke cannabis often anymore, i have a long standing relationship to it as medicine in the form of salves, tinctures and edibles. During harvest there is so much extra herb in @SonomaCounty so I'll be making a variety of medicines: cannabis cramp cordial in brandy, an arthritis salve in coconut and a simple cannabis tincture for pain relief and anxiety. #cannabisasmedicine #cannabislove #decriminalizeit #diylifestyle #craftyasfuck

The Hubble telescope has photographed an enormous, balloon-like bubble being blown into space by a super-hot, massive star. Astronomers trained the iconic telescope on this colorful feature, called the Bubble Nebula, or NGC 7635. The bubble is 7 light-years across โ€” about one-and-a-half times the distance from our sun to its nearest stellar neighbor, Alpha Centauri. The Bubble Nebula lies 7,100 light-years from Earth in the constellation Cassiopeia. #decriminalizeit #decriminalizepsychedelics

"With four months left until full legalization, the apparatus to regulate commercial cannabis sales in California is being built on the fly.

Up to 82 people must be hired. Software must be written to accept applications of thousands of entrepreneurs hoping to legally sell marijuana. Regulations governing sales arenโ€™t fully cooked." California rushes to prepare for legal marijuana sales | The Sacramento Bee http://ow.ly/Qs8a30ew3ab

Got a separate bowl for my bong so I can use #sativa and #indica strains in separate bowls! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’š
This is my sativa bowl and I'm smoking some #BlueDream which is a sativa-dominant #hybrid. (I don't like hybrids, typically, but if they're really #dominant one way or the other, it's usually fine.) .

"You should remember that each variety will affect each consumer differently and that due to expansive cross-breeding practices, the levels ofย THCย and CBD in any plant will differ not only by strain but also by the grower. Scientists warn us against such a simple division "sativa vs. indica" when the truth is so much more complex." What Is Cannabis Sativa? - civilized.life http://ow.ly/p0GG30euqMZ

After years of being shut down on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube for curating classy cannabis content there are social apps where cannabis is not only welcome but encouraged. It started with MassRoots and since then other cannabis social apps have thrown their hat in the ring (Duby, Social High..). Now, we have a new video based cannabis app available from a Los Angeles seasoned tech entrepreneur and Saudi tech prodigy. Toke.TV is the latest social app offering for the cannabis connoisseur, brand, entrepreneur, and more.
