MORNING HEADLINES: No more government! No more pot!

Posted on Thu, Apr 7, 2011 at 7:41 AM

Federal government shutdown, Spokane edition — What would happen to Spokanites if the federal government shuts down tomorrow night? Apparently, not much. (KREM)

House budget passes committee — Which means the Democrats plan — $4.4 billion in cuts, $35 million for a medical school in Spokane, etc. — is getting that much closer to reality. (SR)

Enough boring budget blather, let's talk snow! — It snowed (or rather "graupeled") last night in some parts of town, such as way north of Spokane and Coeur d'Alene. (SR) 

State says yes, feds say no — To medical marijuana dispensaries. The landlords of the 40 dispensaries in Spokane received a note from U.S. attorney Michael Ormsby yesterday, telling them to close the shops' doors or face hefty criminal charges. (KXLY) 

Another quake hits Japan — With a 7.1 magnitude. A tsunami alert has been issued, but the effects of the quake are still unknown. (Atlantic Wire)
