WATCH: GOP Rep. Pulls Out ‘Faux’ Joint During Hearing on Marijuana Laws

Members of Congress have been known to bring some strange props to hearings over the years, but this may be the first time a joint was brandished in a committee room, even if it was (supposedly) a fake one. During a House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee hearing on marijuana decriminalization, Rep. John Mica (R-FL) picked up a joint and started waving it around to show the room what a gram of pot really looks like.

“I have this joint here,” he said. “This is — okay, don’t get too excited, some of you. This is not a real one. It’s a mock one.” He explained that his staff informed him that the joint represented one gram, so under proposed regulations, people could be in possession of 28 joints in the District of Columbia.

'Relentless' Boycott Planned Against Any Team That Drafts Michael Sam

The NFL Draft will take place this weekend, beginning tonight, and there has been a lot of speculation about which team, if any, will draft gay defensive end Michael Sam.

If Sam does get drafted, the team that picks him will get to look forward to dealing with Washington, DC lobbyist Jack Burkman who, as part of his campaign to pass legislation that would ban openly gay players from playing in the NFL, is vowing to unleash a "relentness" boycott against the team that drafts him.

Burkman says that he has a "coalition of Evangelical Christian leaders from across the nation" ready to go as soon as Sam is drafted who will teach the NFL that "when you trample the Christian community and Christian values, there will be a terrible financial price to pay":

Jack Burkman, head of the Washington, D.C. lobbying firm J.M. Burkman & Assoc. who is seeking to ban gays from the NFL, says he intends to build a national coalition to boycott any football franchise that picks openly gay football player Michael Sam in the NFL Draft, which starts Thursday at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

It always puzzles me whenever I see any ostensibly straight person fixate way more on gay sex than any gay person that I have ever known.
