* Eastern United States: UPDATE - The East coast is getting pummeled by a ‘Bomb cyclone’. Think of it as the love child of a hurricane and blizzard. While places like Beaufort and Hilton Head SC got up to 3” of snow, the real monster is hitting the north east coastal areas like Boston and New York. A blizzard and Nor’easter is expected to hit the New England States from this system. That being coupled with the arctic weather pattern being blown across much of the Midwest and into the East Coast is making for some nasty weather. * Washington, DC: AG Sessions reverses Obama era policy on marijuana that essentially allowed for the industry in States as long as it was regulated and controlled.

Story here: Thought of the day: “It has been observed that a pure democracy, if it were practicable, would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies, in which the people themselves deliberated, never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity.” (Alexander Hamilton, speech urging ratification of the Constitution in New York June 21, 1788.)
