Medical marijuana spreads across South America

By most measures the anti-narcotics raid was a raging success. After forcing their way into the apartment, police here in Peru's capital seized five kilograms (11 pounds) of cannabis and equipment, including grow lights and fertilizer.

Grenade-shaped grinder causes airport evacuation in Argentina

Who thought it would be a good idea to bring anything weapon-shaped to the airport?

An Argentine airport was evacuated Tuesday after a suspected explosive device was discovered at the facility. But when the bomb squad arrived to investigate the object, they determined that it was actually a cannabis grinder designed to resemble a hand grenade.
