There’s hope for journalism: The Hill points out the facts (but only at the very end of the story)

I’m glad Jordan Fabian included it his report in The Hill, but it seems timid to put it at the very end. Put it at the beginning, to give some human context. But half a loaf is better than no bread.

. . . Spicer telegraphed the administration won’t take a get-tough approach against medical marijuana [but it plans to on recreational marijuana – LG], saying Trump believes in its ability to alleviate the pain of people suffering from debilitating diseases.

But he said he takes a different view of recreational marijuana, linking it to the abuse of opioid drugs in states across the U.S.

There is little evidence showing a link between abuse of the two drugs. Some researchers believe medical marijuana could help reduce demandfor opioid-based painkillers.
