US Man Says Marijuana Is Sacred Part Of His Religion, Drug Charge Violates His Rights

2010, Mar 14th

Avon, Colorado – A U.S. man who claims marijuana is the main sacrament of his religion says a drug charge against him means he’s being prosecuted for his beliefs.

Trevor Douglas of the state of Colorado says he belongs to the Hawaii-based THC Ministry but was cited for marijuana possession after a state police officer pulled him over for having an expired license plate. The 25-year-old allegedly had less than an ounce of marijuana and a pipe.

Douglas told the Vail Daily newspaper that his religion is similar to Christianity and that the use of pot is sacred to him just like wine and bread are sacred to Christians.

According to its Web site, THC Ministry has offices in Los Angeles, Montana and Colorado.

US Detectives Leave ‘Ransom Note’ For Seized Pot; Suspected Grower Arrested After Calling

2010, Mar 14th

Marathon, Fla. – Investigators in the Florida Keys say they lured a suspected marijuana grower into turning himself in by leaving a ransom note in place of six seized pot plants.

The sheriff’s office in Monroe County says detectives discovered the plants in a wooded lot and confiscated them.

They left a phone number on a note that read: “Thanks for the grow! You want them back? Call for the price.”

Steven Alan Locasio called the number about 10 minutes later. Locasio offered $200 for the plants, and detectives agreed to meet him for an exchange.

Locasio was arrested and booked into jail on drug charges. He was expected to appear in court Tuesday. It’s unclear if he already has an attorney.

A telephone message left for Locasio was not immediately returned.

Free Boob Jobs Offered To Nurses At Prague Clinic

2009, May 31st
AN understaffed Prague clinic has signed up nurses by offering boob jobs, liposuction and tummy tucks as a bonus.

Nurses, doctors and secretaries who sign up with the small private clinic for three years can choose their free plastic surgery.

“It has been a success,” Jiri Schweitzer, a manager at the Iscare clinic, said, adding the establishment was now fully staffed and had to reject dozens of beauty-hunting job applicants.

Petra Kalivodova, a 31-year-old nurse who has been working at the clinic for four years, has had a breast implants – the most popular choice among nurses – so she underwent liposuction for her signing on perk.

“I have mentioned this to colleagues and friends, and the interest in working here is huge,” she said.

The clinic charges up to 75,000 koruna ($5060) for a breast implant, almost three times the average nurse’s monthly wage, and up to €1880 ($3380) for liposuction.

Many Czech nurses have been tempted out of the country by higher wages offered in western European nations and the Czech health system now needs about 6000 nurses in addition to the 90,000 it already employs, according to official data.

Fake ‘No Parking’ Signs Fool Tarpon Springs Police, Who Write 233 Tickets Near Tarpon Turtle Restaurant

2009, May 31st

No ParkingTarpon Springs ­ Police blame a local developer for installing “no parking” signs around a popular city restaurant that resulted in 233 tickets being written in a two-year span.

At the same time, acting Tarpon Springs police Chief Robert Kochen acknowledged his department’s failure to properly handle the matter in 2007.

“We messed up,” Kochen said. “We did not look at this thing like we should have.”

In a 23-page report released this week, Kochen said developer Mike Bronson admitted recently to installing the signs along the city’s right of way after initially denying it.

“Mike Bronson advised that back around April of 2006 he installed all of the 22 signs due to the parking problems caused by customers of the Tarpon Turtle,” Kochen wrote in the report.

Bronson could not be reached for comment.

The blowup dolls had female body parts and witnesses say 51-year-old George Bartusek was touching them very inappropriately.

“As I walk by I saw this guy with two blowup dolls – kissing them and bouncing them and trying to get people’s attention,” said a witness who wanted to remain anonymous.

A customer that saw what was happening inside the car ran inside the store to get a manager while another customer called Cape Coral police.

Teen Gets Jail Time for Putting Grandma in Gangster Rap Video

2009, Feb 17th

West Palm Beach, FL — A Florida teenager was sentenced to 18 months in juvenile detention after pleading guilty to elder abuse charges for coaxing his senile grandmother into a “gangster rap” video.

Alfinez was arrested in April after authorities seized the tape in a routine traffic stop, which also included footage of him and others shooting a pistol around town.

Alfinez also pleaded guilty to charges of firing out of a moving vehicle and into a building.

Five Ballpark Promotions That Went Wrong

2007, Jul 28th

Cleveland Municipal Stadium, 1974

The Promotion: 10-Cent Beer Night. To bring fans to see the miserable Cleveland Indians, management decided to sell 10-ounce cups of beer for only 10 cents at a game against the Texas Rangers.

What went wrong: Management forgot one small detail: drunk people get restless. More than 25,000 fans showed up for the event, most of them already tipsy at the gate. Among the more tame incidents was a woman who flashed the crowd from the on-deck circle, a father-son team mooning the players (good bonding experience, I guess) and fans jumping on the field to meet shake hands with the outfielders. Then, in the bottom of the ninth, the Indians tied the game, but never got a chance to win. Fans started throwing batteries, golf balls, cups and rocks onto the field and one even took the glove of the Rangers right fielder. As the player rushed into the stands to get his glove back, fans starting swarming the field to stop him and threw chairs to block his way.

The Outcome: The Indians were forced to forfeit the game and nine fans were arrested. The AL president forced the franchise to abandon the promotion idea after understating “There was no question that beer played a great part in the affair.”

Cash drop night, All-you-can-eat seat night, and more bad ideas after the break.

420 Temple Leader Seeks Religious Protection

2007, Jul 28th

LOS ANGELES – Jury selection is scheduled to begin tomorrow in the Los Angeles trial of a minister of a Hollywood church that uses marijuana during services.

The Reverend Craig X Rubin, leader of the 420 Temple, argued in a court hearing that marijuana is a religious sacrament and its usage in his church is protected under federal law.

But the judge ruled that Rubin could not use the federal law as a defense because he faces only state charges.

Rubin, who is representing himself, told the judge he would file a writ challenging the ruling and would consider a plea deal if it stands.

Rubin was arrested last fall and freed after posting $20,000 bail.

He faces up to seven years in prison if convicted of possessing marijuana for sale.
