Kids Of Marijuana Activists Put In Foster Care

Posted: Updated:

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Three medical marijuana advocates from southwest Idaho say their children were placed into state foster care after law enforcement searched their home and found marijuana.
    
KTVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/14J4AHT ) when Lindsey and Josh Rinehart came home from a trip last week, their babysitter was home but their two sons were gone.
    
The Rineharts and Sarah Caldwell - who also had two sons placed into foster care - are members of Compassionate Idaho, a group focused on legalizing marijuana for medical uses.
    
No charges have been filed, but authorities say all three are being investigated for drug trafficking and possession.
    
Lindsey Rinehart denied the claims, adding said she has multiple sclerosis and uses cannabis to treat her illness.
    
But she says she intends to quit in hopes of getting her sons back.

That's straight from scientists at the University of Oxford, who published their findings in the peer-reviewed journal Nature Astronomy on Monday.

    Adalya Breaux was in jail on residential burglary and theft charges.She was in belly chains, ankle restraints, and handcuffs but that didn't stop her. During her short walk from the Courthouse to the Jail, she ran from the armed deputies (well waddled from all of the restraints) and attempted to hide under a deck. She was quickly apprehended and booked back into jail with an additional felony charge of 2nd-degree escape.
