A new report released by the Drug Policy Alliance and the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, says the DEA has spent the last four decades thwarting marijuana research which carries the potential of reclassification for the drug.

"The DEA has argued for decades that there is insufficient evidence to support rescheduling marijuana," reads the executive summary of the report. "At the same time, it has... acted in a manner intended to systematically impede scientific research." Currently, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, meaning the federal government does not recognize any acceptable uses for the drug, including medicinal uses. The status of Schedule I also means the drugs in this category cannot receive federal funding for research, medicinal or otherwise. Marijuana is joined on the Schedule I tier by peyote, LSD, and heroine.

(Video Report) The DOJ accused the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office of racial profiling in traffic stops and immigration operations.

Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said at a packed news conference that the findings were not based on isolated incidents and not gleaned solely from statistics but about real people caught up in the sheriff's web of unconstitutional activity. The problem, Perez said, is rooted in a culture in the Sheriff's Office that breeds a culture of disregard for the constitution.

Maryland officials plan to announce this week whether the state will sever ties with the state's second-largest foster care provider, a decision that also could determine whether the company keeps its contract in the District of Columbia.

Officials with the Maryland Department of Human Resources, the agency charged with protecting the state's 7,400 foster children, is expected to announce a decision on renewing the license for Contemporary Family Services. The Hyattsville company's contract in D.C. depends on it retaining its Maryland license, according to officials with the District of Columbia's Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services.

CPS Corruption and Human Trafficking Exposed in San Luis Obispo Republicans Sam Blakeslee and Able Maldonado have teamed together for a child charity in the greater San Luis Obispo area named "The Family Care Connection".

While promoting this charity both politicians refuse to review corruption in the local CPS office. Legislation gives states incentives under Title IV-E to increase the number of children adopted out from foster care. Title IV funding provided to local CPS offices is being used for capturing and adopting out children. However, not all of these children are abused or neglected. Many children who are taken by CPS are not at risk or in any danger thus our Government is creating a form of "child trafficking". Children are becoming a very "profitable commodity". Under section 1962(b) of the RICO Act it unlawful for a person to acquire or maintain an interest in an enterprise through a pattern of racketeering activity. Since a RICO claim cannot be made in the absence of criminal activity many parents are being unjustly prosecuted in kangaroo courts so that children can remain in the "system".

The ongoing debt-ceiling debate (unlike most past increases of the debt ceiling) has involved negotiations about various avenues to deficit reduction.

That's not only because Republicans have the leverage to demand something in return for raising the limit, but also in large part because the debate comes amidst grave worries about our mounting debt, and warnings from creditors and rating agencies about where it's headed. The warnings are based on the unprecedented projected trajectory of the debt. Here is how the CBO sees it going, compared to the scope of our national debt in the past...

Today on Your World, Neil Cavuto reported that dozens of routine health care procedures may be on the chopping block. Several doctor groups issued recommendations to limit testing on everything from breast cancer screenings to E.K.G. tests.

This call is seen as an acknowledgement by physicians that many profitable tests and procedures are performed unnecessarily and even harmed patients. Furthermore, new mammography guidelines that advised women to be screened less often for breast cancer, have caused fear among some women about increasing government control over personal care decisions and the rationing of treatment.

Report notes FBI staffers who first spotted Hasan discussed the political sensitivity of interviewing Muslims who visit extremist websites.

Lawmakers expressed concern that a recently released review of the FBI's actions in the Fort Hood shootings showed an agency that let "political sensitivities" temper the aggressiveness of their investigation into Army Major Nidal Hasan. "An active duty member of the military communicating with a known radicalizer and recruiter should have been taken more seriously than it was," said Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.), chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies at a hearing to review the findings yesterday.

Attorneys specializing in Illinois public records law said Thursday it is the first such ruling of its kind in the state and therefore binding on trial courts statewide. It could also have repercussions for long-running complaints about Chicago police brutality.

From The Western Center for Journalism in a piece entitled, "Spanish Company Will 'Count' American Votes Overseas In November,' they state the following in this excerpt...

For SOE, the Tampa based corporation purchased by SCYTL in January, supplies the election software which records, counts, and reports the votes of Americans in 26 states-900 total jurisdictions-across the nation. ..."
