My Dog Ate My Weed... Now What?

If this hasn’t happened to you, it’s probably because you don’t own a dog.

When You're Robbed by the Cops, Where Do You Turn for Help?

When You're Robbed by the Cops, Where Do You Turn for Help?

In February of 2014, college student Charles Clarke was boarding a flight to return to Orlando, Florida after visiting his relatives in the Cincinnati, Ohio area.
