Sounds like sci-fi, but it’s happened, and now a handful of states are making sure their citizens will never be forced to have a microchip implanted under their skin.

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) -- Iran's president Saturday ordered the resumption of uranium enrichment and an end to snap inspections of its facilities after the U.N. nuclear watchdog voted to report Tehran to the Security Council. Iran had warned that it would resume enrichment if the International Atomic Energy Agency board voted to refer it to the Security Council, which it did on Saturday. Tehran also said a proposal by Moscow to enrich uranium in Russia was dead. "As of Sunday, the voluntary implementation of the additional protocol and other cooperation beyond the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty has to be suspended under...

    TUCKER, Ga. (AP) -- A strange chain of events that began with a traffic accident and a gas leak ended this week with the discovery of nearly $900,000 worth of marijuana growing in a suburban apartment. It began when a drunken driver crashed into an apartment building Sunday morning, said Officer Darren Moloney, spokesman for the Gwinnett County Police Department. The collision ruptured a gas line, prompting firefighters to respond to check for leaks. While checking inside one of the units, they found an indoor pot growing operation, Moloney said.

    An anti-terrorism law creating a national standard for all driver's licenses by 2008 isn't just upsetting civil libertarians and immigration rights activists. State motor vehicle officials nationwide who will have to carry out the Real ID Act say its authors grossly underestimated its logistical, technological and financial demands. In a comprehensive survey obtained by The Associated Press and in follow-up interviews, officials cast doubt on the states' ability to comply with the law on time and fretted that it will be a budget buster. "It is just flat out impossible and unrealistic to meet the prescriptive provisions of this law...

    FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- After a year of legal warfare, voters finally have an answer to who won a disputed state Senate seat: no one. The Kentucky Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the candidate who got the most votes can't serve because she didn't live in the district long enough, and the runner-up can't serve because she didn't win. The result is that the 37th District Senate seat, representing part of the Louisville area, is vacant, as it effectively has been since the start of the 2005 General Assembly. The court didn't recommend a solution, and Gov. Ernie Fletcher wouldn't...

    BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -- The relationship between the University of California and Los Alamos National Laboratory began as a wartime affair conducted against the tense backdrop of the race to finish an atomic bomb. The union has endured for 63 years, some of them rocky. Wednesday marked a new chapter as the government - apparently forgiving a series of alleged financial and security gaffes - asked the university to continue managing the lab that built the atom bomb. A UC bid, made in partnership with engineering giant Bechtel Corp., prevailed over a rival team made up of the University of...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Police officials Thursday disputed a newspaper report accusing them of using undercover officers to infiltrate and monitor anti-war groups and other activist organizations. The report in Thursday's New York Times said videotapes obtained by the newspaper showed police conducting surveillance on people attending an Iraq war protest, a monthly bicycle ride staged by cycling activists and a vigil for a cyclist who had died in an accident. The Police Department's top spokesman, Paul Browne, criticized the report as misleading. He said plainclothes police - not undercover officers - regularly attend protests to maintain order and stop...
