With more than 100 raids on pot dispensaries during his first three years, Obama is now on pace to exceed Bush’s record for medical-marijuana busts. “There’s no question that Obama’s the worst president on medical marijuana,” says Rob Kampia, executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project. “He’s gone from first to worst.”

Thieves Loot Greece’s Ancient Olympia Museum[Daily Mail]

Two masked armed robbers tied up a female museum guard and stole several dozen artifacts from Greece’s Ancient Olympia Museum, which houses one of the most important collections of ancient Greek antiquities.

Police said two robbers wearing hoods broke into the museum at around 7.30am (5.30am GMT) today before overpowering the security guard  and using hammers to smash display cases, taking away between 60 and 70 items.

‘According to the results of the investigation so far, unknown persons immobilised the guard of the museum and removed bronze and clay objects from the displays, as well as a gold ring,’ a police statement said.
