Missouri House takes aim at synthetic drugs

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 17:30 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri House members have given first-round approval to legislation taking aim at synthetic drugs.
 
The bill would add several specific substances to what is considered synthetic marijuana.
 
It was endorsed by a voice vote Tuesday and needs a second vote before moving to the Senate.
 
In recent years, Missouri has tried to keep pace with evolving synthetic drugs and twice has approved legislation targeting them. Sponsoring House member Shawn Rhoads says the current bill is needed to stay ahead in the effort.
 
Lawmakers in 2010 barred spice cannabinoids sold as incense known as K2. A year later, the definition of marijuana in state drug laws was expanded to cover synthetics. The 2011 measure also barred substances marketed as incense or "bath salts" that mimic the effects of cocaine and marijuana.

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 17:26 Published in Local News

As the city of St. Louis celebrates turning 250 years old, event organizers are hoping for a world record.

 

STL250 is organizing a Burnin' Love Festival for Friday. The group wants to invite 250 couples to get either engaged of re-engaged on Art Hill on Valentine's Day. Couples can register to take part at the stl250 website. If chosen, they could win prizes ranging from a steak dinner to a diamond engagement ring.

 

The festival takes place at Art Hill in Forest Park, starting at 4:30 p.m. The "lovin' moment ceremony" will occur at 7:30 p.m.

A California man who served as a youth minister in Florissant, is facing sex abuse charges.
 
Brandon Milburn is accused of sodomizing two 11-year-old boys in his church--the First Christian Church on Patterson Road. Investigators believe the crimes took place sometime between 2007 and 2009. Police are now asking any other potential victims to come forward.
 
California officers are trying to determine if there are any victims in that state.
