Oklahoma Pressure Mounts for Special Session on Medical Marijuana. Amid growing outrage over the Board of Health's imposition of restrictive and controversial changes to State Question 788, approved last month by voters, legislators and others are demanding Gov. Mary Fallin (R) call a special session of the legislature to ensure the will of the voters is upheld. Among other changes, the Board banned the sale of smokable marijuana and required pharmacists to be present at dispensaries. "This is not what the voters voted for," said state Rep. Jason Lowe (D-Oklahoma City). "We must adhere to the will of the people. The governor's signing of the emergency rules adopted by the Oklahoma State Health Department is an affront to democracy, an insult to the law-abiding citizens that showed up to vote for this initiative."

Drug Testing

Massachusetts High Court Holds Judges Can Require Drug Users to Remain Drug-Free. The state's Supreme Judicial Court ruled Monday that a judge can require a drug user to stay drug-free as a condition of probation. The case involved Julie Eldred, who was on probation for a larceny charge when she was jailed for failing a drug test. Her attorney argued that her relapse was a symptom of her disease of addiction and that it was unconstitutional to punish someone for a medical condition. But the court disagreed: "In appropriate circumstances, a judge may order a defendant who is addicted to drugs to remain drug-free as a condition of probation, and that a defendant may be found to be in violation of his or her probation by subsequently testing positive for an illegal drug."

International

Toronto Public Health Board Calls for Drug Decriminalization. The health board in Canada's largest city has called on the federal government to decriminalize all drugs. The board voted unanimously Monday to endorse the recommendation from the city's top health officer, Dr. Eileen de Villa. "The potential harms associated with any of these drugs is worsened when people are pushed into a position where they have to produce, obtain and consume those drugs illegally, so that's what we're trying to address," de Villa said, with a call for a "public health approach" focused on treatment and harm minimization rather police, courts and jail. Officials in Vancouver have also called for drug decriminalization, but the federal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau hasn't shown any appetite for it.

I hadn't really indulged in bagels since my family moved from New york to Virginia. Do you for lack of desire, it's i just never found any that were as good as what I was use to taking. I believe it was 2001 when I moved to Atlanta, Georgia that came upon an establishment called Einstein Bros Bagel that I really enjoyed what I call an "ole fashion bagel". Believed to myself, yes, that's the real deal! You must not be five foot ten, rake thin or supermodel gorgeous to be noticeable and get noticed by a man, but you do have to place personality forth. Don't shy away and hide in the setting. Smile and let the eyes engage those around you, including that great man unwanted weight so much. So after being in shock for a couple of days I started looking for work personal home jobs. Most suitable. I have to say while can be a a regarding work within the home jobs on the web, the associated with them are scams. I started to discover how lucky I was really. I began to appreciate my job. Nevertheless was too late, for that job anyway. I made up my head never take a look at my next job without any consideration. And to have my full attention. Keep abreast of news and current affairs, as well as new books and flicks. Then activity . meet the man you want, he'll see straight away that you're smart and interesting. COULD this be chance? Just as the leaders of the G20 countries start coming to Heathrow for tomorrow's meeting in Canning Town, Associated with Golf has unveiled its joker123 best slot - Take a Swing at Brown. The timely wheeze is to setup targets of Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling at its four driving ranges across the particular and invite punters take a look at aim. Keep your site and articles or content short - no a couple of page. Have a different opinions on this as well, but I'd say, unless you are writing a white paper, or a story for a place journal, keep it between 500 - 700 words. So think carefully about what you need to say. Sometimes simply telling people your business is going green - in coloured type on a natural bag - wonders for the skin way to create a great impression which actually will last. http://www.privatemagazine.org/ar/node/64/track
