King Of Pot Still On The Run
Two years ago police raided John Robert Boone’s (also known as the Kind Of Pot) farm as they suspected that he was once again growing marijuana plants. Upon arrival the police where right as they managed to seize over 2,400 marijuana plants. When they went for the arrest of John Boone it turned out that he had literally vanished like a puff of smoke. John Boone made his escape as he was facing a life sentence as this would of been his third time being caught growing marijuana. Police have found that tracking down the wanted criminal who resembles a tattooed Santa Clause has proven as hard as “trying to catch a ghost”.
Boone, who's trying to avoid the life sentence sympathizers in an area where many farmers down on their luck have planted marijuana, "That's all he's ever done, raising pot," said long time friend Larry Hawkins, who owns a bar and restaurant called Hawk's Place. "He never hurt anybody." As Hawkins puts it, there are two kinds of growers: "You've got the caught and the uncaught." And, at least for now, the 67-year-old Boone is a bit of both. He spent more than a decade in federal prison after being convicted in the late 1980s of taking part in what federal prosecutors called the "largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history," a string of 29 farms in Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Wisconsin.

Teen Girls Hospitalized After Marijuana Brownie Binge
Two scofflaw teens were busted for selling cupcakes and other baked goods in a public park without a license earlier this month. The latest incident kicked the criminality up a notch; a 16 year old was arrested last week for selling marijuana brownies to two 13 year old girls who ended up in the hospital. Police say a suburban New York teenager has been arrested for trying out his own interpretation of the term high school. Officials at Horace Greeley High School in Chappaqua called police at 1:30 p.m. on November 16th to report that the two girls were feeling dizzy and nauseated. "It was determined that two girls ate a brownie that had been laced with marijuana," Detective Sgt. James Wilson said. "They ate it at the school, knowing there was marijuana in it, and felt sick shortly afterward."
The girls were rushed by ambulance to a Westchester Hospital, and were treated and released. The unidentified baker was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of criminal sale of marijuana. It's unclear whether the brownies were made improperly or if this was just a case of two inexperienced teens who didn't know enough to balance out their mellow with a little Four Loko.

DEA Bans Fake Pot
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said it is temporarily banning the chemicals used to make synthetic marijuana. The ban goes into effect sometime in the next 30 days and will last for at least one year while the federal government weighs the possibility of permanently controlling the substances, ABC News reported Wednesday.
The synthetic marijuana, also known as K2 or Spice, is a mixture of readily available herbs sprayed with chemicals. It allegedly mimics the effects of marijuana, a naturally growing, unprocessed weed. "Makers of these harmful products mislead their customers into thinking that 'fake pot' is a harmless alternative to illegal drugs, but that is not the case," acting DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart wrote in a statement.
"Today's action will call further attention to the risks of ingesting unknown compounds and will hopefully take away any incentive to try these products." The DEA reported preliminary tests found synthetic marijuana, which has been banned by at least a dozen states, has dangerous long-term and short term side effects, ABC News said.
