Volunteer falls 50 feet from helicopter during marijuana clean-up

Category: News | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
hellicopter-accidentA 57-year-old volunteer fell about 50 feet from a helicopter during a marijuana-eradication effort in Tulare County this week and died, authorities said. 
 
Shane Krogen, a volunteer from Fresno with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, was in a remote part of the Sequoia National Forest in the mountainous area above Springville when the incident occurred Thursday morning about 10:10 a.m., authorities said.
 
Lt. Patrick Foy of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife said the incident occured during part of Operation Pristine, which seeks to eradicate illegal marijuana grows in California, according to a news release from the agency.
 
Foy said that the area had been eradicated of marijuana three weeks ago and that Thursday's mission was primarily one of reclamation. 
 
One group of about 15 people and a dog spent hours hiking up to the area and "were prepared as if the site was occupied by marijuana growers," Foy said. After they cleared the site, they called in a support team from the helicopter. 
 
"They brought in Shane and his crew" to help, Foy said. Krogen was supervising about five people from the High Sierra Volunteer Trail Crew and supporting the operation.
 
Because the helicopter could not land, it hovered about 50 feet above the site and people were hoisted down in harnesses, authorities said.
 
Krogen "was one of the last, if not the last person out," Foy said. How he fell remains unclear and under investigation.

Florida mom fights for medical marijuana for ailing 2 year old girl

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Sat, September, 14th 2013 by THCFinder
florida-mom-fights-for-mmj-for-daughterTAMPA - Dahlia is fighting brain cancer after surgery to remove part of an aggressive tumor at St. Joseph's Hospital. Now, her mother says she just wants to get her to her third birthday, with the help of a type of marijuana that's been shown to reduce cancerous tumors.
 
"Dalia's 2. She's almost 3 at the end of the month,” said mom Moriah Barnhart.
 
This Tampa mom knows there are no guarantees in life, not even third birthdays.
 
"They sedated Dahlia and took her in for an MRI,” she said in a YouTube video.
 
"I'm under the impression this was about as aggressive as it could be. It spread to her brain stem in the three weeks since her surgery to remove the portion of the tumor they could remove,” she told me via Skype.
 
Doctors diagnosed the cancerous tumor on May 5. Then Barnhart says she chose to take Dahlia to St. Jude's in Memphis, Tenn., where she's now being treated with chemotherapy and drugs.
 
But the treatment Barnhart is fighting for may take other parents off guard.
 
"To tell me that you would have given that to a 2 year old right before her diagnosis probably would have horrified me at this point I completely understand that it's safer and it's necessary."
 
Barnhart says medical marijuana, in liquid form, has been shown to reduce cancerous tumors.
 
"Generally, it’s an extract from the drug as morphine is. You extract it from the plant and you take it in liquid form," she said.
 
The Tampa mom is petitioning the Obama administration and telling her story on YouTube.
