News@noon: Brexit and the aftermath, pot lawsuit

The Detroit News

Today is Friday, July 24, 2016, and for many in Britain, they are considering it a day of Independence.

Britain has voted to leave the European Union after a bitterly divisive referendum campaign, toppling prime minister David Cameron, sending global markets plunging and shattering the stability of a project in continental unity designed half a century ago to prevent World War III.

So what happens next? We will have to see.

Here's what else is making news today:

Clinton gets a HUGE endorsement 

Take... guns out to the ballgame?

Did the state lie about pot?

  • Several medical marijuana caregivers and patients have filed a class-action lawsuit alleging the Michigan State Police crime lab intentionally misrepresented test results that expose thousands of people to possible felony charges.

Guns N' Roses original members, from left, lead guitarist Slash, singer Axl Rose and bassist Duff McKagan perform "Mr. Brownstone," the second song of the night as the legendary rock band kicks off its 2016 "Not In This Lifetime" tour at Ford Field in Detroit on Thursday, June 23, 2016.

Guns N' Roses on fire

  • Not only did the reunited Guns N’ Roses tear through a 24-song, two-and-a-half hour barn burner of a set to kick off its “Not in This Lifetime” tour in front of a hot crowd of 41,000 rock and roll fans at Ford Field on Thursday, but the group opened the concert by showing up on stage two minutes prior to its advertised start time. Guns N’ Roses, early? Not in this lifetime, indeed.

A little screen time

  • If you plan to catch a movie this weekend, here are your options: "Free State of Jones" is a well-intentioned but heavy-handed history lesson. Call it a civil bore about the Civil War, says film critic Adam Graham. "The Shallows" is this weekend's sleeper hit as an effective minimalist thriller. "The Phenom" is a quiet mood piece that offers a lot of insight. "The Idol" could have been standard "Rocky" inspirational fare, but this film is much more. "The Neon Demon" is as visually resplendent as it is narratively vacant. Don't be surprised if you want to walk out.
