Summary:
As the income gap widens between college and high school graduates, we're ranking the ten dumbest states in America, determined by the percentage of the population with Bachelor's degrees. Number ten of the group is Tennessee, where 23% of the population has Bachelor's degrees. While Fortune 500 companies like FedEx and Autozone are in Memphis, most of the state's jobs don't require advanced educational degrees. Tennessee has over 82,000 farms, 60% of which are used to raise cattle. The state has a median household income of about $42,000, making it 44th in the country, and has an average SAT score of 1709.

Senator Rand Paul Offers Medical Marijuana Amendment

TheStreet (June 19, 2014) — Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Cory Booker (D-NJ) offered an amendment that would keep the Department of Justice and the Drug Enforcement Agency from spending federal money to undermine states who have legalized marijuana. The House passed a similar amendment in May, but without the Senate the passage meant nothing. The DEA continues to harass groups involved with marijuana in states that have some legalization. Boston doctors were complaining of intimidating tactics by the DEA who threatened their licenses if they continued to support medicinal marijuana. A NY legislative vote has yet to happen today.
