People wait in the heat to enter Cannabis City during the first day of legal retail marijuana sales in Seattle, WashingtonBy Eric M. Johnson and Bryan Cohen SEATTLE (Reuters) - Eager customers lined up before dawn on Tuesday as Washington became the second U.S. state to allow the sale of marijuana for recreational use, although shortages and high prices were likely to accompany any euphoria. Store employees clapped and cheered at Top Shelf Cannabis in the northern city of Bellingham as its first buds were sold to a 29-year-old from Kansas, Cale Holdsworth. "I'm happy to be a part of history," said Holdsworth, who was on vacation visiting family and took his place at the front of the line at about 4 a.m. A handful of shops opened a day after 25 outlets were issued licenses under a heavily regulated and taxed system approved by voters in November 2012. The nation, and the federal government, are watching Washington's rollout as a broader trend of liberalization and pro-pot activism takes hold in the United States.

More than 550 Memphis police call in sick in 'blue flu' protest

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 09:19
More than 550 police officers from Memphis, Tennessee, called in sick on Tuesday, a quarter of the department, in an escalating protest over cuts in health benefits that could eventually cost some officers their jobs, the city's mayor said. The so-called "blue flu" wave started June 30 and has grown daily in an apparent protest to a new Memphis budget that raises the health premiums active city workers pay and cuts retiree health benefits, officials said. Memphis has canceled vacations and other scheduled time off for officers to take up the slack and the Shelby County sheriff has helped fill in gaps, officials said. "It's a tough predicament," said Memphis City Councilman Lee Harris, chairman of the council's budget committee.

U.S. government watchdog criticizes probe into student detained for days

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/09/2014 - 09:18
By Marty Graham SAN DIEGO (Reuters) - A federal government watchdog criticized the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on Tuesday for assigning agents suspected of misconduct to investigate the near death of a college student left in a holding cell for five days without food or water. The student, Daniel Chong, says he survived by drinking his urine and spent three days in intensive care after the incident. His lawyers said he reached a $4.1 million settlement with the DEA last year. The Office of the Inspector General said on Tuesday it was a conflict of interest for the DEA's San Diego Field Division to appoint to the investigation the same supervisor and case agents who were responsible for Chong's detention.
