    HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Three Houston police officers are under investigation after claims they got high while on duty. And the claim, made by a man accused of drug possession, are backed up with something undeniable -- the words of the officers themselves. It sort of jumps off the page. "'So high' spaced out: h i g h" defense attorney Daniel Cahill said. The words of a Houston police officer about an hour after arresting Nicholas Hill for marijuana possession. "It was actually about 10 or 11 at night," Hill said. Hill was at his Atascocita apartment with friends late one...

    Cheech and Chong are back, and they're pitching "magic brownies" - for General Mills. The stars of 1980s stoner comedies are featured in a funny promotion for Fiber One brownies, a new high-fiber snack targeted at aging baby boomers. The online-only commercial resembles a movie trailer, and the twist comes at the end: the "magic" ingredient turns out to be fiber, not marijuana. "Fiber - because now that you're getting older, you need a new kind of magic from your brownies," the announcer says. Chong's response: "This is the weirdest movie ever, man." The ad campaign began when the General...

    AUSTIN, Texas – A Texas teenager was charged with assault after six students were hospitalized when they ate marijuana-laden brownies he served them at a school band practice, myFOXaustin.com reported Wednesday. Kevin Coffey, a 17-year-old student at Austin's Lake Travis High School, told authorities he didn't know the brownies contained drugs when he handed them out -- but police said text messages he had sent to friends proved otherwise. Police said many of the students were unaware of the brownies being laced with pot and six were transported to the hospital by their parents. ...

    Public health advocates and some mayors are sounding the alarm over Lazy Cakes, a brownie adorned with a lackadaisical cartoon character and laced with a powerful sleep aid that has sold millions nationwide. “Children are attracted to brownies,” said Dr. Caroline Apovian, director of the Nutrition and Weight Management Center at Boston Medical Center. “I don’t think it’s appropriate to put herbal things that are actually drugs in brownies or food items that are attractive to children. I think that’s heinous.” One Lazy Cake, which is wrapped in plastic with a photo of a smiling cartoon brownie, contains 8 mg...

    On Monday, July 12th Michelle Obama addressed the NAACP and she spoke at length about her "Let's Move" program, which targets childhood obesity. "To address this challenge, we need to be honest about how we got here. The way we live today is very different from the way we grew up. Fewer children are walking or biking to school, more families are eating on the run, and children are watching more TV than playing outside." Here's my answer to Michelle:

    This story ran a while back on freerepublic (May 2007), but no one posted the YouTube video that shows news anchors losing composure after hearing the 911 audio of a cop who apparently confiscated pot during an arrest, took it home, baked it, consumed it with his girlfriend, and then freaked out. Consider it a Friday humor break. Have a good weekend all!

Yep, the Girl Scouts are the latest DHS/Obama recruits..As Yahoo Daily News reports in an article entitled "US Girl Scouts prepare for war, pestilence," The move is part of a month-long government effort to make Americans better able to cope with natural and man-made disasters.

    Former Sen. John Edwards said at a Hurricane Katrina conference he would propose what he called "Brownie's Law" requiring that qualified people, not political hacks, lead key federal agencies. Edwards, who is seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, drew laughter when he spoke on Monday of the proposal at the "Hope and Recovery Summit" ahead of the two-year anniversary of the storm on Wednesday. "It's an absolute travesty to have people who are essentially political hacks in a very responsible position," he told the audience at the University of New Orleans. "Brownie" refers to Michael Brown, who was head of the...

    DEARBORN, Mich. -- A police officer who admitted taking marijuana from criminal suspects and baked it into brownies with his wife will avoid criminal charges. The police department's decision not to pursue a case against former policeman Edward Sanchez left a bad taste in the mouth of at least one city official, who vowed to investigate. "If you're a cop and you're arresting people and you're confiscating the marijuana and keeping it yourself, that's bad. That's real bad," said City Councilman Doug Thomas. Sanchez, who resigned last year from the department in this Detroit suburb, declined comment Wednesday. Police Commander...

  • Anyone have any experience with the Brownies?

    My 7-year-old daughter recently asked if she could join the Brownies like some of her friends. I am inclined not to let her join, because my understanding is that the Brownies (and the Girl Scouts) are not what they were when I was growing up in the 1950s. Still, I hate to deprive my daughter of a valuable experience with her friends. The fact is, I really don't know much about the Brownies, since I was a Cub Scout (and Boy Scout) back in the days when we were allowed to proudly wear our uniforms in school, replete with the...

    We all know that when contracting the government should spell out the terms of the contract. But, what we might not know is that there are people within our government who write, review, test, and approve documents beyond reasonable, such as for baking brownies or oatmeal cookies. When the politicians say they can't seem to find much in the annual federal budgets to cut, ask them to cut out the brownies and cookies. The following document is a military recipe specification and is 26 pages long. It includes references to many, many other government agency standards, including those of the...

    SINGAPORE (NNS) -- Girl Scouts and Brownies from two troops in Singapore dropped in on the crew of USS Safeguard (ARS 50) during a port visit to Singapore to pass out boxes of Girl Scout cookies May 9. The cookie delivery was part of Operation Thin Mint, a program developed by Girl Scouts in the San Diego area, where they teamed up with their customers to send cookies and handwritten notes of support to service men and women serving overseas. “We’re extremely grateful to the Girl Scouts for bringing a piece of home out here to us while we’re deployed,”...

    Victory for Free Speech at William & Mary WILLIAMSBURG, VA— After pressure from and public exposure by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), the College of William & Mary (W&M) has reversed course and allowed an "affirmative action bake sale" to proceed without interference. A student group, the Sons of Liberty, saw its satirical protest unlawfully halted by W&M in November; it was one of many such protests nationwide that were shut down on campuses this past fall. While W&M allowed the group's bake sale to proceed without incident this time, W&M President Timothy J. Sullivan issued a...

    DELEON SPRINGS -- The legless body of a pedestrian killed in a gruesome crash was thrown through the windshield into a moving car's front passenger seat, where it stayed while the teenage driver drove home to call police. Joseph Markert, 57, was trying to cross U.S. 17 near Mills Road in DeLeon Springs about midnight Friday when he was hit by a small car driven by Daniel Dradeen, 19, according to Florida Highway Patrol and EVAC reports.

    Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Cal Skinner voluntarily walked into the "Past Marijuana Use Confessional" on Tuesday, but said not only did he not inhale--he didn't even know he was using pot until it was over. In one of the most bizarre marijuana revelations yet, the former Republican state representative admitted to reporters that he unwittingly tried marijuana about 20 years ago when someone cooked up a batch of pot brownies for him as a birthday present and didn't tell him about the secret ingredient. So did he inhale? "I guess I swallowed," Skinner conceded. "I mean, I like brownies a lot....

    Cannabis poses a greater threat to health than tobacco, lung experts have warned. The warning comes on the day that Home Secretary David Blunkett is due to make a Commons statement about the future of government drug policy. Many young people are simply not aware that smoking cannabis may put them at increased risk of respiratory cancers and infections . Dame Helena Shovelton: The Home Affairs Select Committee has recommended that cannabis is downgraded from a class B drug to class C. This would mean that possession would lead to a caution, rather than arrest. The British Lung Foundation is...
