Roughly a third of the team skipped the event in protest. The...

The attorneys general of 38 states and territories sent a letter to congressional leaders on Wednesday, urging them: Please, let us bank the money generated by the country's booming cannabis business. Most states and several U.S. territories have legalized medical marijuana , and 10 states and the District of Columbia have legalized adult recreational use .

Dysfunction, Set In Boston

Boston Lyric Opera ’s latest production is an opera version of Margaret Atwood’s novel A Handmaid’s Tale , a story of a dysfunctional future society, staged in the most authentic setting possible, a basketball court.
