Warning issued after teenagers hospitalized due to eating flower seeds in order to get high

The Seekonk Police Department in Massachusetts is warning parents that some teenagers have been eating plant seeds in order to get high from their hallucinogenic properties. Police Chief Craig Mace said his department first heard of the problem when some teens who had eaten the seeds in neighboring Somerset got sick and were hospitalized.
Now, the seeds have been found in the Seekonk School District. “We as human beings have a tendency to come up with different ways to become impaired, or however you want to describe it,” said Mace. He’s referring to Sleepy Grass, Hawaiian Baby Woodrose, and Blue Morning Glory seeds. The seeds have a hallucinogenic effect because they contain LSA, which is similar to LSD.

“Here we have a natural product that’s intended for ornamental purposes, and somehow, someone figured out that it could cause a hallucinogenic effect,” said Mace. “Parents should know if their children are into planting flowers or not, so if they see these things in the household, the radar should be on, the red flag should go up.”

A memo from Seekonk Schools Superintendent Arlene Bosco about the seeds was posted on the Seekonk Police Department Facebook page. She said the Somerset teens were not seriously hurt. Bosco said the seeds could cause “auditory and visual hallucinations, spatial and temporal distortion, introspection, and side effects such as nausea and vomiting.” The post said that the Somerset Home Depot had agreed to remove the seeds from their shelves for the time being, but that many other stores may sell the seeds.

Police advise tourists not to buy marijuana plants in restaurant parking lots after truck find

A man visiting Elbert County, Colorado, from Texas was pulled over with 21 marijuana plants in the back of his truck. He told the Elbert County Sheriff’s deputy that he purchased them in a restaurant parking lot.
The man, a Mr Garcia, was stopped while driving on Highway 86 in Elbert County on Friday afternoon. Mr Garcia told the deputy he was visiting from Dallas. When the deputy asked about his cargo, Mr Garcia told him that he had paid cash for the 21 plants.
After the encounter, Elbert County posted a tourism tip that includes this advice: “We encourage you to visit our beautiful state and take advantage of all that Mother Nature has to offer. We have 300 days of sunshine a year and know that you will thoroughly enjoy your visit.
“However, if you choose to purchase 21 marijuana plants in a restaurant parking lot the criminal penalties resulting in felony charges will make the visit a negative one to say the least. Although the deputies will provide three meals a day, your room has no view and there are no amenities.”

Naked man allegedly shooting gun across road from his front yard arrested

Charges have been filed against a man from Harwood, Missouri, who deputies said was standing nude in his front yard and firing a gun across a road.
The Vernon County Sheriff’s Office said Gary W. Griblin, 61, nearly hit a passing vehicle with the gunfire shortly before his arrest on Friday.
“We believe Griblin was intoxicated and told deputies he was shooting into the air,” Vernon County Sheriff Jason Mosher said.
The deputy who made the arrest had to call for assistance because Griblin refused to get into the patrol vehicle. Griblin is charged with assault, unlawful use of a weapon, resisting arrest, armed criminal action and sexual misconduct.

Woman arrested after showing breast to inmate during video visit

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office in South Carolina arrested a Walhalla woman on Wednesday after she exposed one of her breasts during a video visitation with an inmate at the Oconee County Detention Center.
Deputies said Aimee Marie James, 29, was charged with indecent exposure and booked into the Oconee County Detention Center.
On April 29, an investigator from the Criminal Investigation Division received a video from a supervisor at the Detention Center. It reportedly showed James exposing one of her breasts during a video visitation on April 27, at an inmate's request, into the video camera.
An investigation led deputies to James. A warrant was issued for her arrest on May 3. James was later released from the detention center on $5,000 personal recognizance bond. In South Carolina, the penalty for indecent exposure, which is a misdemeanor, is not more than three years in prison and/or a fine with the amount determined at the discretion of the court.

Lawyer who says he won’t represent drunk drivers arrested on suspicion of DUI

An attorney who states in a commercial that he will not represent drunken drivers was arrested on suspicion of DUI in Florida on Saturday. David Maloney, 49, was booked into the Escambia County Jail at around 3:30am on a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence.
He was released on $500 bond about 6 hours later. Maloney was taken into custody after a deputy observed a Lamborghini speeding in Pensacola Beach and pulled the car over, said Escambia County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Deputy Jacob Holloway. “During the traffic stop the deputy developed enough probable cause that David J. Maloney was driving under the influence.
He was placed under arrest and booked in the Escambia County Jail,” Holloway said. Maloney touts his services in commercials. In one ad, titled “DrunkDriving,” the attorney based in Mobile, Alabama, stated that he would not represent drunken drivers. “Believe it or not, I still sometimes get calls from people who think that they can convince me or pay me enough to represent them in a drunk driving context,” Maloney said in a video from 2012.

“I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if you drink and you drive and you hurt someone, don’t call me. I’m not going to represent you, I’m not going to help you. If anything, I’m going to be the lawyer going after you.” Maloney handles a variety of legal cases, including general personal injury claims, motor vehicle accidents and DUI victims. He is scheduled to appear in court on June 1.
