The Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Protection and the United States has signed a five- million dollar Child Protection Compact at the Flagstaff House in Accra.

Nana Oye Lithur said Ghana was selected because of the country's "strong government commitment, existing inter-ministerial framework and active civil society fighting child trafficking". She said Ghana has proved that it has the potential to reduce child trafficking through improved coordination and enhanced investigations and prosecutions.

The very name 'Child Protective Services' denotes that they are supposed to protect the child. According to Nehemiah Flynt, author of Legal Discrimination, it is all a huge lie we have been told.

He contends that he discovered in time that it was all a lie. A few children actually did come from homes where abuse or neglect of some sort happened. Most of the children were not from that type of situation, though. According to Flynt, most of the children that came through his door were taken from their homes for reasons that seemed too innocuous to even involve CPS. Some of these reasons include: parents arguing in public, a child punching a wall, or parents too scared to make their children attend school.

This story is yet another piece of evidence piling onto the mountain of support for cannabis oil and full marijuana legalization.

In Live Free or Die, a 2010 memoir recounting how cannabis oil saved her life, Shona Banda emphasizes the importance of "self-taught knowledge," acquired by constantly asking questions and "looking at all of the angles of any information given."

Her son may have learned that lesson too well. Had he been less inquisitive, less prone to question authority, he might still be living with his mother, and she might not be facing criminal charges that could send her to prison for decades. Banda, a 38-year-old massage therapist who appeared in criminal court for the first time last week, is free on a $50,000 bond while her case is pending.

The latest report by an independent federal court monitor says Mississippi doesn't have the capacity to meet many of the court order's basic requirements to improve the state's foster care system.

"The evidence shows that in most instances defendants did not meet Period 4 performance requirements," said Grace Lopes, the Washington, D.C.-based monitor appointed by a Mississippi federal judge. "Based on the history of defendants' performance since 2008 when the remedial stage of this lawsuit began, it appears that defendants do not have the capacity to meet many of the MSA's most basic requirements. Defendants' ongoing failure to meet these requirements has a substantial and continuing impact on the safety and well being of the thousands of children in defendants' custody every year and their timely placement in permanent and nurturing homes."

The new director of the Michigan Department Health and Human Services has his work cut out for him as he oversees the state's largest and newest department, with 14,000 employees and a $24 billion budget.

Much to the surprise of the general public, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of expanded the ability of law enforcement to search without warrants.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority of the court which  ruled 6 to 3 that "when occupants of a residents disagree on whether they will admit police without a warrant, the objecting occupant must be physically present," the Washington Post  reported. "That doesn't change if police have removed the objector," the court added. "An occupant who is absent due to a lawful detention or arrest stands in the same shoes as an occupant who is absent for any other reason," Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. wrote.
