Rivers of Coke - Pills of Pot - International

One of the most interesting stories of the week was the Italian governments analysis of cocaine use through analyzing the sewage in a local river to measure local consumption.

It's also been reported that the Canadian government has accepted Bayer's application to deal pot to Canadian pharmacies in pill form. Numerous reports reveal "terminally ill" patients seeking prescriptions from Canadia pharmacies. One mother reported that her 11 year old son has prescriptions to narcotics but has found marijuana to be the best relief.

Though many states have passed Medical Marijuana bills, the Federal government has maintained a firm position and no-tolerance policy with or without a doctor's prescription.
