Do an article on any one of these three topics: gun control, police unions, or the legalization of marijuana. Generally speaking, I do my best to stay away from those third-rail issues, but sometimes my responsibility to report the trends affecting LEOs forces me to suck it up and get zapped. Let me be clear in one thing right up front. I will not pretend to present an “answer” to this question — rather, I hope this to be an open forum in which everyone on PoliceOne can add their voice to the discussion.
2012. Cannabis News - Cannabis Cancer Drug Trials Underway in UK. Sativex was initially brought to market as a treatment for the spasticity associated with Multiple Sclerosis. But as more evidence becomes available its becoming apparent Rick Simpson was onto something with his cancer treatment.

Could Medical Marijuana Reduce Patients’ Need for Opioid Painkillers? A small, new study backs a long-standing claim of advocates of medical marijuana: pain patients can safely use cannabis while taking opioid painkillers, and may actually need fewer pills because of it.
The research included 21 chronic pain patients, who were taking either long-acting morphine or Oxycontin twice a day. Adding marijuana to these opioid drugs reduced patients’ pain by an average of 27% and did not significantly affect blood levels of the prescription drugs. If marijuana had raised those blood levels, it could have increased overdose risk.

By Rob Waugh Updated: 08:32 GMT, 14 December 2011 During nuclear weapons testing in the early Fifties, one of the challenges facing the U.S. government was to design a camera capable of capturing a nuclear device mid-explosion.
The result, unearthed this week by blog Damn Interesting, was the 'Rapatronic' camera - an ultra-high-speed camera that sat seven miles from the blast site and captured images at high speed - including this image of an 100-ft ball of fire, one ten-millionth of a second after detonation. The first millisecond of a nuclear explosion: At this point, the blast is just 20 metres wide. It was captured during a nuclear test in the Fifties 'At that instant, a typical fireball had already reached about 100 feet in diameter, with temperatures three times hotter than the surface of the sun' Mom’s hug revives baby that was pronounced dead - Parenting & Family. Obama: Give us our drone back. Obama: Give us our drone back US President Barack Obama Following days of silence on the American spy drone captured and unveiled by Iranian armed forces, US President Barack Obama says Washington has asked Tehran to return the US reconnaissance drone.
“We've asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond,” Obama said in a news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday.

Posted by Mochizuki on December 12th, 2011 · 50 Comments The wall of the south side is falling apart at reactor 4.
Reactor 4 is in the most serious situation. It is assumed that if another aftershock hits it to drop the spent fuel pool hung in the building, the entire area in eastern Japan would be too contaminated to be inhabitable. On 12/2/2011 (JST), something like “fire” was observed beside reactor 4. Since then, a strong light has been set toward Fukuichi camera as if it was hiding something by white out.

Approaching the first anniversary of his election as Labour leader, a confident Ed Miliband tells Robert Philpot and Richard Angell from Progress in the United Kingdom, how he is occupying Britain’s new centre-ground and why he is following his own instincts.
Ed Miliband does not like comparisons. He will not, for instance, be drawn on a briefing given to the Spectator earlier this summer in which readers were told that the Labour leader had ‘an unlikely new role model’ – Margaret Thatcher. Paris Pick-Pockets: Be Warned « Thoughtlines with Bob Carr. Here follows an e-mail from a 70-year-old American friend about pick-pockets and effective police work on the Paris Metro: Although my wife, Pat, and I have visited Paris dozens of times, we decided to re-create our initial experience of just over half a century ago in fall 1958 after disembarking the Queen Mary at Le Havre and taking the boat train to Paris.

Rise of the 99 Percent Part 1. No Constitutional Preamble; No More Power to Judges « Thoughtlines with Bob Carr. Australians will support a referendum to remove from our constitution any discriminatory provisions bearing on indigenous Australians. I support inserting a provision that explicitly empowers the Federal Government to legislate for Aboriginal advancement.
I welcome the report in today’s Australian that the panel which has been working up the recommendations for the government will not recommend the insertion of a new preamble in the constitution. This is important because of the activist nature of the High Court. As the brilliant analyst James Allan points out in The Australian today, judges in France and India have taken constitutional preambles to stretch the constitution and assert their own judicial omnipotence.
