    *The largest ever study of the effects of the main psychoactive component of cannabis suggests that it can cause paranoia in vulnerable individuals* To discover whether cannabis really does cause paranoia in vulnerable individuals, we carried out the largest ever study of the effects of THC (∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol, the drug’s principal psychoactive ingredient). We recruited 121 volunteers, all of whom had taken cannabis at least once before, and all of whom reported having experienced paranoid thoughts in the previous month (which is typical of half the population). None had been diagnosed with a mental illness. The volunteers were randomly chosen to...

Then the sirens go off, the population huddles behind closed doors and “commencement” of the purge begins with ticking clock, an excellent suspense element.

    Several years ago, we had a burglary and guns were stolen from our house. About a year ago, one of them turned up on a thug, who was reaching for it in his waistband and subsequently was tasered by the police before he was able to use it one them. In the end, the gun helped to put him away, but even with priors (including a shooting about 10 years back) he only received a sentence of 3 ½ to 7 years from our pathetic “justice” system. Fast forward to the present. I was informed that I could get my...

Patrick cited America's history of giving refuge to various groups fleeing famine and persecution, as well as his personal faith in deciding to propose facilities in his state to house illegal immigrants.

    The suspects in Wednesday's deadly bank heist, police chase and gunfight in Stockton, California, were known gang affiliates with deep criminal pasts and no qualms with taking human life amid their "reckless and chaotic" crimes, police said Thursday. Stockton police detailed the bloody hour-long melee that followed the armed bank robbery — an attack that left dead two suspected robbers and a mother of two whom they took hostage and used as a human shield. The violence left police cars riddled with bullet holes and an entire community reeling. “In my over two decades of law enforcement, I've never seen...

    Despite the media play Chicago gets, it isn't the official "Murder Capital of the U.S.A." That unhappy distinction - based on the murder rate per 100,000 people, not on the number of actual dead people on the streets - belongs to poor, under-populated Flint, Mich. Chicago gets the bad rap - and the attention of the anti-gun nuts -- because it led the nation with 415 homicides last year. That's more murders than any other city, but not even in the top 10 when you factor in population. Thanks to its recent "Independence Day Massacre," which left 18 dead...

But given a recent ruling by the Louisiana Supreme Court, Father Bayhi is in the position of choosing between prison and excommunication. Per the Supreme Court’s ruling, Bayhi must appear before the 19th Judicial District Court in Baton Rouge, which will determine whether what he heard – a civil action by the girl’s parents contends that it involved...
