On a Wednesday evening in September 2014, Max Lorincz called 911 after his wife, Erica Chittenden, fell unconscious on the kitchen floor of their house in Crockery Township, Michigan, apparently after overdosing on prescription drugs.

Ottawa County Sheriff's Deputy Patrick Gedeon, who responded along with an EMT from the Crockery Township Fire Department and an ambulance from North Ottawa Community Hospital, noticed a clear plastic container on the kitchen counter containing a tarry residue that looked like butane hash oil (BHO). Lorincz explained that he had a state-issued medical marijuana card and had obtained the BHO from a dispensary in Muskegon. Gedeon removed the plastic container from the house, setting in motion a series of events that ended with Lorincz facing a felony charge and the loss of his 6-year-old son. The puzzling case revealed a change in policy at the Michigan State Police (MSP) Forensic Science Division that Lorincz's lawyers say may have tainted hundreds of convictions by falsely identifying cannabis extracts as synthetic THC.

Less than five days after it was introduced, the Senate passed the 144-page, two-year budget deal that suspends the debt limit until March 2017 and raises spending caps.

The Senate passed the budget deal, 64-35, just after 3 a.m. on Friday. Thirty-five Republican senators opposed the deal, though it was not enough to stop the bill from heading to President Obama's desk.

EU lawmakers on Wednesday rejected by a huge majority a hard-won compromise which would have allowed EU member states to decide for themselves whether or not to import Genetically Modified Organisms for use in food and animal feed.

Parliament voted 557 to 75 against a law which took the European Commission years to negotiate amid deep suspicions about the possible health and safety implications of GMO products. The outcome, however, turned on a matter of principle -- allowing member states to ban GMO products would mean erecting barriers within the EU's most cherished achievement, its single market of more than 500 million people.

Large chemical companies and their major trade association and lobbying arm, the American Chemistry Council, say they can maintain high safety standards through self-regulation and voluntary actions. Our report finds this isn't the case.

Chemical manufacturing uses dangerous substances that can be hazardous to the health and well-being of chemical plant workers and to the residents who live nearby. The American Chemistry Council (ACC) and leaders in the chemical industry have fought stronger government oversight of chemical manufacturing for decades, arguing that the rules currently regulating toxic chemicals are adequate.

I've been seeing a lot of news articles recently about parents being arrested and their children removed from their custody because they let them play unsupervised outdoors. The first thing I felt upon reading these stories was intense indignation.

Why is this happening? Why has there been this tremendous change from my own childhood, in which it was normal for us to wander far and wide, unsupervised, as young as 6 or 7? There are a few reasons. First, the decline of community. During my childhood, all the neighbors knew each other and would keep an eye on each other's kids. The boundary between home and not-home was more fluid, more gradual. The neighbor's yard or the cornfield at the end of the street was still home territory.

Two weeks after the Butte Fire in Amador and Calaveras counties was contained, fire managers are assessing the blaze and the effort to fight it.

The Butte Fire burned more than 70,000 acres in Amador and Calaveras counties last month. It killed three people and destroyed nearly 500 homes. "The main message that I'm hearing is that history didn't help them at all to fight this fire," says McClurg. "It acted erratically, violently, completely unpredictably. And they feel like the fires they're seeing today... the Valley Fire, the King Fire last year. They're fighting the fires behind instead of out front because they can't predict what they're going to do."

The U.S Forest Service is assessing the damage and considering next steps to restore the landscape in the Butte Fire area. Nearly 71,000 acres burned in Amador and Calaveras counties in September.

Much of the burn area is completely devoid of life. The trees are blackened sticks. Large areas suffered "high severity" burns, which means no vegetation survived the extremely hot flames. "We don't have any trees there anymore," says Barnie Gyant, a deputy regional forester for the U.S. Forest Service. "No seed source for natural generation so when we look at this drought and what this costs on these fires are in the region, it's a system gone bad."

The U.S. government secretly allowed radiation from a damaged reactor to be released into air over the San Fernando and Simi valleys in the wake of a major nuclear meltdown in Southern California.

More than 50 years ago - fallout that nearby residents contend continues to cause serious health consequences and, in some cases, death. Founded in 1947 to test experimental nuclear reactors and rocket systems, the research facility was built in the hills above the two valleys. In 1959, Area Four was the site of one of the worst nuclear accidents in U.S. history. But the federal government still hasn't told the public that radiation was released into the atmosphere as a result of the partial nuclear meltdown.

If life wasn't hard enough these days, beware the scam artist. Have you had the call yet?  The one where Microsoft is calling you, telling YOU that...

But really? Does PG&E call you at home, not unless they have scheduled and outage and even then, it's an automated recording, not a real person. They just don't call and ask for money. Period. We've had several clients and friends who have endured the humiliation, the financial lost and the frustration of being ripped of for hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Legislation blocking states and municipalities from requiring genetically modified food be labeled as such is languishing in the U.S. Senate.The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, H.R. 1599, passed the House by a vote of 275-150 on July 23.

"We're going to have a biotech hearing right off the bat," Roberts said Thursday. "We don't call it GMO, we call it biotech for a purpose. We are trying to prove to the American people that their food is safe and we have everybody from the FDA to the USDA to EPA testifying." Opponents of genetically modified food, such as organic farmers, argue its health effects have not been properly studied and that most Americans are in favor of GMO labeling. They refer to Pompeo's bill as the Denying Americans the Right to Know Act, or DARK Act.
