In a highly anticipated, two-hour TV interview -- hailed by transgender rights' campaigners and his own Kardashian-linked family -- the 65-year-old said he had wrestled with his sexual identity since he was a kid. "I've always been confused about my gender identity since I was this big," he told ABC's celebrity interviewer Diane Sawyer. Supposed telltale signs, based on paparazzi photos from the streets of Los Angeles, include shaved limbs, long hair worn in a ponytail and what appears to be a sports bra under a T-shirt. He stressed the difference between gender identity and sexuality.
(Reuters) - Washington Governor Jay Inslee on Friday signed a bill that will overhaul the state's medical marijuana market, reconciling the long unregulated system with the voter-approved recreational pot industry. While marijuana remains illegal under federal law, voters in Washington state and Colorado approved recreational cannabis use in landmark votes in 2012 that ushered in licensed and taxed retail stores offering a range of products to adults. "Today, after tremendous hard work and compromise by legislators on both sides of the aisle, I signed a bill that will create a medical marijuana system that works for Washington." The bill will remove collective gardens that supply medical dispensaries starting next year, in favor of four-person "cooperatives." Some existing collectives will be allowed to continue operating however, if granted a license on the basis of factors such as the applicant's tax history. It will also establish a voluntary database of medical patients and let authorized patients possess three times the amount of marijuana allowed by the recreational-use law.
