Americans reflect on legal pot ahead of 420 holiday

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 06:23:18 UT

America's marijuana supporters have a lot to celebrate on this 420 holiday : Thirty states have legalized some form of medical marijuana, according to a national advocacy group. Nine of those states and Washington, D.C., also have broad legalization where adults 21 and older can use pot for any reason. Michigan could become the 10th state with its ballot initiative this year. Yet cannabis remains illegal under federal law, and it still has many opponents. Here's a look at what some advocates and critics have to say about the state of marijuana in the U.S. today: KELLY PEREZ, DENVER CEO and founder of kindColorado, which provides community engagement opportunities for the cannabis industry to be assets in communities.



2 black men arrested at Starbucks get an apology from police

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 05:19:21 UT

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Rashon Nelson initially brushed it off when the Starbucks manager told him he couldn't use the restroom because he wasn't a paying customer. He thought nothing of it when he and his childhood friend and business partner, Donte Robinson, were approached at their table and were asked if they needed help. The 23-year-old entrepreneurs declined, explaining they were just waiting for a business meeting. A few minutes later, they hardly noticed when the police came into the coffee shop — until officers started walking in their direction.

Mariners turn unlikely triple play against Astros

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:14:53 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — The Mariners turned a triple play against the Houston Astros more likely to be seen in a Little League game than the major leagues. Seattle recorded the three outs on one play in the fourth inning in Thursday's 9-2 loss to the Astros. "That was an ugly play and not something we want to see happen," Houston manager A.J. Hinch said. With runners at first and second and no outs, Evan Gattis hit a check-swing ground ball to third base. Kyle Seager stepped on third and threw to second base to force Carlos Correa. Gattis finished running to first but turned to jog back to the dugout. Seager noticed what was happening, and Robinson Cano threw to Daniel Vogelbach, who applied the tag.



Police: Man shot motorist in road rage incident on I-5

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 00:05:30 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — Authorities say a man was shot during a road-rage incident on Interstate 5 in Seattle. The Washington State Patrol says the shooting happened Wednesday morning just before South Michigan Street. The victim told officers that he was driving his car north about 6 a.m. when a motorist pulled in front of him and slammed on the brakes. Authorities say the confrontation continued until Michigan Street, where the other driver then pulled along the left side of the victim's car, rolled down the window and fired two shots, one of which struck the victim in the leg. The suspect's car then exited to Michigan Street. The victim continued driving on the interstate to Harborview Medical Center.



Charlie Morton dominant as Astros silence Mariners 9-2

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 23:52:23 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — In a four-game series that displayed the depth and talent of the Houston Astros starting rotation, it was their No. 5 starter that turned in arguably the best performance. Charlie Morton pitched seven innings of three-hit ball, Jose Altuve hit a three-run double and the Astros beat the Seattle Mariners 9-2 on Thursday. After losing the series opener, the Astros won their third straight behind another impressive pitching performance. Morton allowed singles to Robinson Cano, Mitch Haniger and Nelson Cruz, and otherwise baffled Seattle's lineup. In the four-game series, Houston's starters dominated with none of the four allowing more than two earned runs. Seattle was just 15 for 100 against Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers Jr.

Department of Defense employee pleads guilty to sexual abuse

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 22:41:55 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — Federal officials say a Department of Defense civilian employee from Port Orchard has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a co-worker while on a temporary assignment to a U.S. Naval base in Japan. The U.S. Justice Department says 36-year-old Michael Cerera pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of abusive sexual contact before U.S. Magistrate Judge J. Richard Creatura of the Western District of Washington. Officials say Cerera admitted that in January, 2016, while a civilian employee of the Department of Defense in Yokosuka, Japan, he engaged in sexual contact with a female co-worker when she was asleep. Cerera told authorities he was present in the victim's hotel room and climbed into her bed while she was sleeping.



The Latest: Trump administration vows to fight injunction

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 22:25:17 UT

CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on battle between sanctuary cities and the Trump administration over public safety funds. (all times local): 5:10 p.m. President Donald Trump's administration has criticized a nationwide injunction preventing it from withholding public safety grants from cities that refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement policies. A three-judge appeals court panel in Chicago agreed Thursday with a lower judge's temporary injunction barring the Trump administration action. The Justice Department says in a statement that the use of such nationwide injunctions is a "dangerous precedent," and may be unconstitutional. It vowed to continue fighting for tough immigration policies.



Justices: Teachers not required to report own child's abuse

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 22:19:58 UT

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Teachers in Washington are supposed to tell authorities when they believe a student has suffered abuse or neglect, but the state's Supreme Court ruled Thursday the requirement doesn't necessarily apply when a teacher's own child is the victim. In an 8-1 ruling, the court dismissed a Pierce County case against a teacher who failed to immediately report that her daughters told her their stepfather had molested them. State law requires certain professionals, including teachers, nurses and police, to make reports when they have reasonable cause to believe a child has been abused.

Worker killed when Missouri public TV tower collapses

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 20:43:04 UT

FORDLAND, Mo. (AP) — Officials say a maintenance worker died when a Missouri television station tower collapsed and he became trapped under a tangle of metal and wires. Rob Talburt, assistant fire chief for the Logan-Rogersville Fire Protection District, says the 1,980-foot (600-meter) tower near Fordland collapsed Thursday.
