Ohio Sheriff Wants County to Expand Jail to House Drug Addicts
An Ohio sheriff is hellbent on stuffing as many drug addicts into his jail as possible—a completely different plan than what state officials have been working toward for months.
Earlier this week, Wood County Sheriff Mark Wasylyshyn told the Associated Press that he was in desperate need of additional jail space in order to compensate for the overcrowding issue caused by an influx of drug addicts. The sheriff said the jail has been forced to create makeshift medical facilities out of its booking department and other areas of the facility, including cells, to make room for the overabundance of prisoners going through opioid withdrawal.

Hoosiers Want Medical Marijuana!
Indiana’s Republican-dominated legislature has all but refused to give any marijuana-related bill so much as a hearing. But now a new poll finds that this anti-pot attitude goes against the grain of the voters. An impressive majority of Hoosiers supports the legalization of medical marijuana.
That’s according to the latest WTHR/Howey Politics Indiana Poll, published last Friday, which shows 73 percent of Indiana residents believe marijuana should be legalized throughout the state for medicinal purposes. Only 25 percent of the respondents opposed this kind of reform to the state’s drug laws. Two percent were undecided.
Indiana lawmakers have been trying for years to get the state legislature to hear various proposals aimed at legalizing marijuana. But none of those measures, not even one pushing for the decriminalization of minor possession, have so much as received a hearing.

Pets on Pot: The Newest Customer Base for Medical Marijuana
When Lisa Mastramico needed relief for her ailing tabby, Little Kitty, she turned to an unlikely source: marijuana.
At 12 years old, the cat had arthritis. For a long while she spent her days hiding in a closet, where Ms. Mastramico had built her a bed of plush blankets. After trying various supplements that proved ineffectual, she went to a meeting forWomen Grow, an industry group for cannabis entrepreneurs.
She was not sold on the idea right away. “My concern was that it’s not my place to get my cat high,” said Ms. Mastramico, the director of a public access television network in Long Beach, Calif.
