"For some, there is no logical reason marijuana should be outlawed in most of the United States. Vic Chesnutt, a musician based in Athens, Georgia, is one of those people, and some might argue that he has good reason to feel the way he does. When Chesnutt was 18, he was involved in a severe car accident in which he suffered a broken neck that partly severed his spinal cord. Now paralyzed, he says that marijuana is the only drug in the world that gives him sensations in his lower extremities while allaying muscle spasms."--CNN

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
