We have some real problems and they are only going to get worse. We have a right to know what we are eating. People are getting allergies, this isn't normal folks. If we don't pay attention to what's happening, in our food supply, to our farmers, the plants, and ultimately our grocery store we are going to wake up one day and realize we trusted the health of our children and the health of our families to the government. And the government let us down.

Arkansas law enforcement may now test a person's saliva to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Arkansas law enforcement may now test a person's saliva to determine if they are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The law was passed in March and went into effect July 17. Lieutenant Allan Marx with the Sebastian County Sheriff's Department was a driving force behind the changing law. He said before the Arkansas DWI law changed, officers could test a person's blood, urine and breath. Marx said while working a case last year, he learned about saliva testing and recognized a need for it in Arkansas. "If there's ever a new way, a new tool that we can use to help not only law enforcement but help the public and the safety of the people out there, it needs to be used," said Marx. "I believe this product is going to save lives."

A World War two veteran who said he was roughed up by a Metro Police officer filed a lawsuit claiming he was handcuffed and slammed to the ground because of a 311 call.

George Pappas and his wife of 64 years, Sippin, moved to Las Vegas last year. The couple was looking for peace and quiet, but he said all that changed when Metro came knocking on their door. Pappas said the officer explained they had been dispatched to his house because of a 311 call. George said neither of them called and then the officer asked to speak to George's wife. "I opened the door, he stood by the wall and I was at the door, and we talked for a little bit and then he said that he had to check to see if everybody wasOK in the house," Pappas said. "I said, 'My wife is very ill, I can't let you see her,' so he marched me out and said, 'You are going down,' by grabbing my hand, putting the handcuffs on the left hand, and throwing me on the ground."

LAS VEGAS - Addiction to painkillers is spreading and leading to other problems - from doctor shopping to pharmacy robberies to overdose deaths.

During the last 10 years in Nevada, per capita sales of Oxycodone surged 366%. Hydrocodone sales rose 233%. Dr. Ghertner says too many doctors are over-prescribing these drugs. The physician often doesn't consider an exit strategy to get the patient off these powerful pills. Nevada has safeguards in place, including a prescription drug monitoring program to keep track of which prescriptions patients are filling at the pharmacy.

LAS VEGAS -- The use of powerful mood-altering drugs for mental health treatment is on the rise among kids in the care of Nevada's child welfare system. It's a trend the I-Team first examined back in 2009.

Despite assurances from both state and local officials progress has been painfully and perhaps dangerously slow. The data the I-Team received from both the state and the county is such a mess it's hard to say exactly how much the use of psychotropic medications among kids in care has increased. What is clear is that nearly 30 percent of kids in the system are taking at least one of these medications and the state confirms an increase last year. At the same time both agencies were supposed to be fixing the problem.

A woman from Carbondale claims she suffered emotional and mental distress during an active shooter training exercise she claims she didn't know she was a part of.

Michelle Meeker is suing the Carbondale police chief and an officer. Her employer, the Heritage Park Care Center, where the exercise occurred October 13, 2013, is also listed in the complaint. In a complaint received by 9NEWS Tuesday, Meeker claims she was taken hostage by a man with a gun while at work at the assisted living center in Carbondale. Meeker says the gunman held her against her will while she begged for her life. According to the complaint, what she did not know at the time was that the man with the gun was a Carbondale police officer, and it was all a part of an active shooter drill that was taking place. Meeker claims that she was not informed of the training and suffered severe mental and emotional distress since the incident.

DENVER - After more than 40 years of surveys, support for the legalization of marijuana has reached the magic number: 50 percent.

In Colorado, voters will decide next year on whether to allow the use of small amounts of marijuana. Five years ago, the state voted 59 to 41 to turn down a similar measure. Next year, the measure will come back.

Selected vaccine authorities from CDC, FDA, and manufacturers discuss, in a closed meeting, the possibility of neurodevelopment disorders resulting from vaccine components.

The CDC published a study in late 2003, repudiating any possible link between thimerosal and developmental problems such as autism, but the CDC did have data supporting such a link which it secretively kept from the public. Documents released through the Freedom of Information Act detail the transcript of a meeting held in June of 2000 between members of the CDC, the FDA, and representatives from the vaccine industry. This top secret meeting was held to discuss a study done by Dr. Thomas Verstraeten and his co-workers using Vaccine Safety Datalink data as a project collaboration between the CDC's National Immunization Program (NIP) and four HMOs. The study examined the records of 110,000 children...
