Norton High School teacher charged with giving marijuana to students
NORTON, Ohio -- A Norton High School math teacher and tennis and basketball coach was accused Wednesday in Medina County Common Pleas Court of throwing pot parties for students at his home.
Terry Sense, 37, of Wadsworth Township, was charged with 28 counts of corrupting another with drugs.
The charges followed a four-month investigation by Norton police and the Medina County Sheriff's Office. Norton Police Chief Thad Hete said Sense lived alone. Investigators said the incidents occurred between June 2007 and December 2009, but declined to say how many times it happened.
Police said all students were juveniles at the time of the incidents. Some are still at the school and others have graduated.
School officials put Sense on paid administrative leave on Oct. 5 when the allegations surfaced. He has taught at the school since 1996.
He was held in Medina County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
Doctors Son Jumps To His Death After Smoking A Joint
A doctor's son threw himself to his death from a sixth floor window after taking just one puff of a powerful 'skunk' cannabis joint, an inquest heard today. Ahmed Shammam, 23, began behaving erratically and frothing at the mouth after taking a 'deep puff' of the joint in the early hours of July 30 this year. Friends frantically tried to stop him as he ran in to the bathroom and out the window, falling 75 feet to his death. The electrical engineering student, who suffered hypersensitivity and claustrophobia, called out for his mother before plummeting to his death.
He died instantly of a ruptured aorta, but received multiple injuries on impact, Westminster Coroner's Court heard. Deputy coroner Dr Shirley Radcliffe said: 'This is the first time where I have come across something where it's a reaction to a very small amount.' Consultant pathologist Professor Sebastian Lucas said that toxicology reports at first showed no signs of the drug. It was only when it was sent back for a second check traces were found in Mr Shammam's blood. No traces were found in his urine, as it had not yet been processed by his body. Only 2.5 mg of cannabis were found - any lower and it would have shown no trace, said Professor Lucas.
He added: 'Cannabis can sometimes make people do very strange things very quickly.' Mr Shammam, a Libyan national who had been in London for just four days, had spent the evening dining with his three pals close to the flat in Evelyn Court, Stourcliffe Street. No alcohol or other drugs had been consumed, and Mr Shammam was a strict Muslim. Recording a verdict of accidental death Dr Radcliffe said: 'On returning back to the flat it appears the cigarette was smoked by Mr Shammam that was described as being composed of strong skunk. 'His friends reported that Mr Shammam took a long deep puff and then his behaviour became odd and erratic. ‘He frothed at the mouth, he rushed in to the bathroom and went out of the window to the area below the flat.

Feds Imagine Marijuana Growers Will Launch Terror Attack?
Northern California pot growers bomb a car and a bus, then take over Shasta Dam in a bid to free an imprisoned comrade. It sounds like the plot to a very cheesy Grade-B thriller, but it was actually the premise for a day-long terrorist attack drill conducted by 20 state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies Wednesday.
According to an account published in the local paper theRedding Record Searchlight, the Shasta Dam scenario had the "Red Cell" pot grower/terrorists blowing up the car and bus to create a distraction and then taking over the dam. Holding three people hostage, the terrorist pot growers then threaten to flood the Sacramento River by opening the flood gates unless their imprisoned comrade is freed.
The drill was part of the US Bureau of Reclamation's Critical Infrastructure Crisis Response Exercise Program, which started in 2003. It identified six dams, including Shasta, the nation's second largest, as possible terrorist targets. Similar exercises took place at Utah's Flaming Gorge Dam in 2003, Washington's Grand Coulee Dam in 2005, and Hoover Dam on the Arizona-Nevada border in 2008. But none of those exercises identified pot growers as the putative terrorists.
According to bureau spokesperson Sheri Harral, the drill took 18 months of planning and cost the bureau $500,000. The other emergency and law enforcement agencies that participated paid their own expenses.
