Medical Marijuana Zoning Hearing Monday In Dexter
Dexter residents can tell officials what they think about medical marijuana business regulations at a public forum Monday. The Dexter Village Planning Commission holds hearings starting at 7:30 p.m. at the Dexter Senior Centre on proposed changes to the zoning ordinance. The new rules would regulate medical marijuana dispensaries in the Washtenaw County community.
AnnArbor.com says afterward, the commission is expected to decide whether to recommend approval of the proposal to the village council. Under the proposed zoning rules, marijuana dispensaries would need an annual permit that would be reviewed by the sheriff's department. They couldn't be closer than 500 feet to a library, a school or other marijuana dispensary. The proposal also would ban smoking marijuana on site.

Teenager in Critical Condition After Snorting Dog Medication, Smoking Marijuana
An 18-year-old Florida man remains in critical condition Friday after he and six other young people reportedly snorted dog medication, inhaled butane, smoked marijuana, ate mushrooms and took over-the-counter cold medicine.
Lee County Sheriff's Office spokesperson John Sheehan said officers responded early Thursday morning to a medical assistance call at 1:40 a.m. at an apartment in the Forestwood complex in Ft. Myers, Fla. after a neighbor called 911.
"When we arrived it was obvious they were under the influence," Sheehan said. "It was bunch of teenagers that were hanging out and using poor judgment."
According to police reports, Melinda Santos-Rios, 30, had arrived home from work when she heard someone in the apartment next door say, "He's not moving."
Rios told police she ran next door and everyone inside "seemed to be really out of it," so she called 911.
All seven were rushed to local area hospitals early Thursday morning. The 18-year-old man was the only one whooverdosed on the strange drug concoction, according to Lee County police.
The six other victims, including 16-year-old Mariah Miles, who hosted the get-together, were treated and released from the hospital Thursday. Aside from Miles, the others were between the ages of 18 and 20.
The police report said the kids "were transported because they had mulitple drugs in their system ranging from Benadryl, to shrooms, to acid, to clonapin [sic] and marijuana."
Spokesman Sheehan said no drugs were found inside the home.
"All I know is there were multiple illegal drugs found in the system of each person and there were some that were not illegal," he said.
Mariah Miles told ABC affiliate WZVN in Ft. Myers that she and her friends were just hanging out while her mother was at work.
"I didn't think anything about it," she said. "I did weed and Klonopin."
According to police, the neighbor had already called 911 by the time Mariah's mother, Melissa Miles, who rents the apartment, came home and found a terrifying scene.

Cannabis Factory With Plants Worth £80,000 Found In Irlams o' th' Height
Police raided a cannabis factory where drugs worth £80,000 were being cultivated. The 70 marijuana plants were found with a lighting and hydroponics system at a warehouse in Irlams o' th' Height, Salford. Officers carried out the warrant on Claremont Road at around 8am, after members of the public tipped off the police. Cops were joined by fire fighters who helped prise open doors of the factory to discover a secure room containing the drugs.
Police confiscated the haul and believe the value of the plants is somewhere between £60,000 and £80,000. A 40-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of production of a Class B drug with intent to supply and is now being quizzed by police. PC Danielle Southwell said: "We have listened to the concerns of our residents who feel that this area is being blighted by drug dealing and today's warrant is a direct result of information from members of the public. "Thanks to their help, we have seized more than 70 mature cannabis plants and in doing so stopped a large amount of drugs from flooding our streets.
"Sadly, drug addiction leads to other crimes such as burglary and robbery as a means to fund their addiction and people who cultivate cannabis serve only to propagate this cycle of misery. "Help us to rid the streets of drugs and the people who peddle them by contacting us. This recovery shows what we can achieve when the public work with us so, please, if you do know anything come forward."
