The Secret, Somewhat Racist History of How Hawaii Became a State

For most people, Hawaii being part of the United States is just completely logical. But for many years, the island operated as a sovereign nation with its own rulers and government. So how did that change?

The folks at Adam Ruins Everything, a television show on TruTV where host Adam Conover exposes the truth behind many aspects of our society, decided to tackle the history of Hawaii. And while it may surprise people to learn that grass skirts and tiki bars have nothing to do with Hawaiian culture, the history behind it's statehood will be even more shocking. 

But now we give them three votes in the electoral college, so it's all good, right?


Right now, cannabis can only be legally purchased through dispensaries or online retailers, but that could change if a group representing corner stores across America gets its way. The lobbying arm of the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) is preparing to fight for the ability of their members to sell weed once it becomes federally legal in America. NACS doesn't have support for federal cannabis policy reform on their official agenda, but that doesn't mean they don't want a piece of the pie if the industry is legalized nationwide.
