    NORTHVILLE, Mich. - The Michigan Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that sitting in a car in your own driveway while drunk constitutes drunken driving. A Northville man questioned whether he could be ticketed for a DUI in his own driveway after he was found behind the wheel and going in and out of his garage, but not off his property. The driveway DUI case had been ping ponging between courts and finally ended up in front of the Michigan Supreme Court for a final decision. At issue was a Northville man busted for being drunk and driving in and out of...

    The cannabis industry could have a notable economic impact, if the U.S. federal government stays out of the way. Investors are always on the lookout for fast-growing industries, which means there's no surprise why marijuana stocks have been such strong performers over the past year. Far more pot stocks than not with a market cap of at least $200 million have doubled or tripled in value over the past year. Optimistic growth figures for the industry are seemingly everywhere. Aside from the fact that a record number of Americans surveyed by Gallup and CBS News want to see cannabis legalized...

The dog was taken to the vet and treated overnight after police found him in a car with Thomas Bloedel, 44, Thursday afternoon. The man was heavily...

    Pirates infielder Jung-Ho Kang has been denied a visa to enter the United States. The report just broke this morning and has yet to hit the English language press. Kang, who was just convicted of a third DUI in Korea, may have a DUI conviction in a third country, though that part is unconfirmed. It’s also unclear whether that, or the mere fact of his conviction in Korea, has held up his visa. Either way, Kang has yet to see a day of camp and will almost certainly not be ready to start the season for the Pirates, even if...
