Why do states keep running out of weed?

Nevada officials may have underestimated the high level of anticipation for the state’s new recreational marijuana law, because in its second weekend after launching the adult-only program, Nevada nearly ran out of pot. The shortage isn’t all that surprising, though, because other states have also suffered from low weed supplies shortly after rolling out recreational laws.

Around 40 percent of Americans were harassed online

Roughly four-in-ten Americans have personally experienced online harassment, most commonly on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, according to a Pew Research Center survey released on Tuesday.
The survey shows 41 percent of 4,248 respondents have been subjected to online harassing behavior such as offensive name-calling and embarrassment, up from 35 percent in 2014 when the think tank last conducted a similar survey.
Nearly one-in-five said they experienced more severe forms of harassment such as physical threats, stalking and sexual harassment.
While men are more likely than women to experience online harassment overall – 44 percent versus 37 percent – women, particularly young women, are more likely to be the targets of sexualized forms of online abuse. Two-in-ten women ages 18 to 29 said they have been sexually harassed online, and just over half said they have been sent explicit images they did not ask for, according to the survey.

Mexican immigrant sues Chicago police

A Mexican immigrant sued Chicago police in federal court on Tuesday, saying he was mistakenly listed in a gang database that cost him federal protections and will lead to his deportation later this month.
Luis Vicente Pedrote-Salinas, 25, of Chicago, argued in a lawsuit filed in U.S. district court in Chicago that his false inclusion on the gang list led immigration agents to raid his home in 2011 and detain him. He was brought to the United States when he was five years old.
U.S authorities denied his application for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, even though he met all the requirements, the lawsuit said. President Barack Obama created DACA to give people brought to the county as children temporary protection from deportation.
Pedrote must leave the country July 20.
