    With the legal cannabis industry generating $6.9 billion in sales in 2016, up 34% from 2015, it’s a no-brainer to say that much is at stake as the business inevitably grows.

Just recently, numerous investment firms have cropped up, announcing themselves as major entities in the billion-dollar industry. The opportunities are wide-ranging: Everything from exotic strains of marijuana to concentrated edibles to topical creams fortified with CBD extracts, as...

    Kansas City Star ^ | August 14, 2015 | By TONY RIZZO and GLENN E. RICE
    It’s a new drug. And it’s a killer. Known on the street as “flakka,” the synthetic concoction is hitting hard in Florida, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and other parts of the country. It’s causing a rash of emergency room visits and overdose deaths. In one highly publicized Florida case, a man reportedly high on flakka gnawed on and disfigured another man’s face before he was shot to death by police. Another user tried to break down the door of a police station in Fort Lauderdale, and a few weeks later, a man impaled himself while trying to climb a fence around...

    This video shows the dramatic moment an attempted murder suspect was tasered and bundled into a police van by 20 officers following a tense stand-off in east London during which he allegedly shouted: 'I am your king.' Before tasering him and knocking him to the ground, police are shown spraying the man with CS gas - which has no effect. After firing the taser, they rush to surround the man, who has dropped his weapon, and appear to secure him to a stretcher while he shouts. Neighbours in the Hackney street, alerted by the noise, rush out of their homes...

    "Zombie" attacks continue: Naked man arrested after biting Fla. man Despite assurances from the CDC that zombies do not, in fact, exist, strange things keep happening in Florida. The Center for Disease Control says we have no reason to fear a zombie virus. But that hasn't stopped a series of strange events, including one in which Rudy Eugene brutally attacked a homeless man, biting off chunks of his face. Perhaps 22-year-old Jeremiah Haughee found Eugene to be an inspirational figure. That's our best guess for why he was climbed naked onto the roof of a St. Augustine, Fla., home, bit...
