    Rental Car or Marijuana Dumping Ground?

    (DENVER) — Denver International Airport rental cars appear to be increasingly used as a marijuana dumping ground for travelers. People who want to avoid illegally bringing pot into the airport simply leave it in the car or offer it to the car rental agencies, one Avis Rent A Car airport agent said Thursday. “We see quite a few cases,” the 18-year Avis employee in Denver, declining to give her name, told ABC News. “We basically don’t touch it. Usually, the manager will take it and flush it down the toilet. “We are a drug-free environment. We don’t take it or… Read more

    Movie Review: “The Purge” (Rated R)

    (NEW YORK) — The Purge was one of the 2013’s big box office success stories.  It cost $3 million to make and went on to gross around $90 million.  The plot was just a bit heavy-handed: In the not so distant future, a new U.S. government regime has solved most of America’s social ills by establishing The Purge.  One designated night a year, every act of violence you can think of is legal, including murder.  As a result, crime is down, employment is up, and the population is under control.  The Purge allows citizens to cleanse their souls through violence. … Read more
