    DELRAY BEACH, Fla.-- Officials say a teenager texted his mother from the back of an ambulance after he was injured in a crash, asking her to grab a drug-filled suitcase from the trunk of the car.

  7. Memory of Drug Addiction Remains Evident, Even After Death

    A protein known as FosB in the reward centre of the brain alters in chronically ill people suffering from an addictive disorder (e.g. heroin addiction). It is genetically modified, split off and shortened. This modification under the stimulus of the drug results in the protein stability and therefore remains longer in this part of the brain than in its original form – even as much as several weeks after withdrawal of the drug. This means that a craving for the drug persists. This...
  8. Were Magic Mushrooms the Inspiration for Santa and His Sleigh Mates?

    There’s been a much disputed theory floating around over the years, involving Santa’s flying reindeer and magic mushrooms. We all know the annually told tale called “The Night Before Christmas,” written by Clement Clarke Moore in 1823. It’s legendary and was responsible for the motif of St. Nicholas in a air borne sleigh: “I knew in a moment it must be St Nick. “More rapid than eagles his coursers they came, “And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name!” So, where...

  11. Miami Boat Captain Fishes Himself Up a Kilo of Cocaine

    "Nothing to see here!" famed charter captain Mark "the Shark" Quartiano hollered this morning as his crew scooped what appears to be a bale of cocaine out of the waters off Miami. The love-him-or-hate-him shark fisherman, profiled earlier this year by New Times, was taking clients fishing around 8 a.m. when he noticed something bobbing in the water and turned back. His first mate used a net to bring the green barnacle-studded package aboard the Striker-1. It was about a foot-and-half by a...
  12. At the North Pole, Santa Claus Himself is Advocating for Marijuana Legalization

    Legalising marijuana is a political hot potato in the United States - but it appears one advocate for the Class C drug is Santa. Marijuana was recently legalised in Alaska, but communities across the country were allowed to vote on allowing marijuana businesses to operate locally. Voters in the North Pole (surprisingly, people do actually live there - it's a suburb of Fairbanks) decided their town would be closed for this business. But one resident is bitterly disappointed by the...

When they asked him if there was anything in the building they should be made aware of, he said: “Yes, obviously, upstairs in the flat – the coke.” Officers escorted Kelly upstairs to...
  14. Cocaine-Positive Kisses Accidentally Delivered to a World Champion Pole Vaulter?

    World champion pole vaulter Shawn Barber was right to compete at the Olympic Games despite testing positive for cocaine ingested during a sexual encounter, says Athletics Canada.

An independent arbitrator ruled no fault or negligence by Barber, who finished a lowly 10th in Rio. Athletics Canada called the decision "fair and reasonable." Barber posted an online advert...
  15. Intoxicated teen escapes drink-drive conviction after reversing car just 1m

    It must be one of the shortest journeys ever by a drunk driver – a one-metre reversing manoeuvre. But it was enough to attract the attention of police, who laid a charge against 17-year-old Cameron McNeil. He walked free from Hastings District Court on Wednesday after a judge decided that, even though he had been caught "driving" with a breath-alcohol level almost three times the legal adult limit, the impact of a conviction would outweigh the seriousness of the crime. That was because...
