New form of Pot could cause explosions in Lincoln County

No more texting and driving in St. Charles

Tuesday night the city council voted in favor of the ban 9 to 1. So if you are caught texting and driving at any age within St. Charles city limits, police can now issue you a ticket. No texting and driving in St. Charles, that’s the ordinance that was proposed Tuesday night. If you do, you’ll get a ticket no matter how old you are. The sponsor of the bill says, cities like Kirkwood and Manchester, have already implemented the ban; and Lake St. Louis is also trying to ban texting while driving. The need is there, according to texting and driving safety.com, which states that 82-percent of Americans ages 16 and 17 own a cell phone, with 34-percent say they text while driving. 39 states including the District of Columbia prohibit texting while. Now you saw the video of the packed house, with the majority of the folks here to tonight were here to talk about the New Town issue. That’s why there is still no vote on the texting ban. Residents in New Town oppose an ordinance to re-district the community for construction of traditional home by T.R. Hughes. Last night was the first reading, with a second reading on September 23rd.

 

New form of Pot could cause explosions in Lincoln County

Dangerous explosions have been the result of people trying to make butane hash oil or marijuana wax, a more potent form of marijuana that is showing up in Lincoln County. The name on the street for this potent form of marijuana can vary but include shatter, ear wax, amber or honey oil. A small pinhead of the wax is the equivalent of 15 marijuana joints, said Lieutenant Andy Binder. He said online video sites are filled with tutorials. A typical marijuana joint may have 25 percent THC. The wax has 60 to 90 percent THC. “It’s an instant high. Kids usually say it’s the highest they’ve ever been. If you don’t like to get really high, this is not something you would do or want to do,” said Chris Lewis of Bridgeway Behavioral Health. Lewis said many of those treated at Bridgeway Behavioral Health are familiar with wax. "Because of its potency, there's no way to regulate it, so there's no way to introduce it to the body and know what the effects will be. It's instantaneous, that's a huge risk." Experts said teens do not realize how dangerous it is.

Speed trap town in trouble for outrageous ticket quotas

On one small stretch of highway in the tiny town of Waldo, Florida, the speed limit requires drivers to speed up and slow down six times: 65 mph becomes 55 mph; 55 becomes 45; then goes back to 55; then back down to 45 before rising to 55 again and eventually dropping to 35 mph. Such tomfoolery has earned Waldo the distinction of being one of the nation’s two worst speed traps, according to AAA, and now the town is under investigation for implementing ticket quotas, which are illegal in Florida. At a recent city council meeting, a group of officers said they were ordered to write 12 tickets during each 12-hour shift. In 2013, Waldo’s seven police officers filed 11,603 traffic citations—almost half as many as much-larger Gainesville.
