Homeowners’ Associations Are Dealing with Marijuana Conflicts
July 31st, 2014/
Many homeowners’ associations are dealing with conflicts among neighbors about marijuana use, in states where the drug is legal for medical or recreational use, theAssociated Press reports. The associations are also grappling with disputes about growing marijuana and hemp.
Associations cannot ban members from using marijuana in their homes if the drug is legal. But they can regulate its use as a nuisance or as a threat to children if neighbors can see or smell marijuana, the article notes.
“The fact that people may be legally entitled to smoke doesn’t mean they can do it wherever they want, any more than they could walk into a restaurant and light up a cigarette,” said Richard Thompson, who owns a management consulting company in Portland, Oregon for condominium and homeowners’ associations.
In his own condo development, neighbors complain about marijuana smoke in the warmer weather, when people are out on their patios and have the windows down, he told the AP.
“What we’re really seeing more now is regulating the associations’ common areas,” such as playgrounds and homeowners’ porches, said Erin McManis, a Phoenix laywer whose firm represents many homeowners’ associations.
New Electronic Device and Mobile App Designed to Detect ‘Date Rape’ Drugs in Drinks
July 31st, 2014/
A company in Toronto is developing a new electronic device and mobile app to detect ‘date rape’ drugs in drinks, according to CNN Money.
The product, called Personal Drink ID (pd.id), sends an alert to a person’s phone if it detects their drink has been drugged. The device, which measures 3.5 inches long, looks like a small USB key, the article notes. It can be dipped in and out of a drink, and is small enough to fit in a pocket or purse.
The company’s founder, J. David Wilson, said he expects to release pd.id in April, at a cost of $75.
Earlier this year, researchers in Singapore announced they have developed a new test that can detect the date-rape drug GHB in drinks. GHB is predominantly a central nervous system depressant. It can be produced in clear liquid, white powder, tablet, and capsule forms. Because GHB is odorless and tasteless, it can be slipped into someone’s drink without detection. The drug incapacitates people who ingest it, making them vulnerable to sexual assault.
The researchers mixed a fluorescent compound with a sample of drink containing GHB and found the mixture changed color in less than 30 seconds. They said the color change was seen in clear and light-colored drinks, including water and vodka. Better lighting was needed to see the change in darker drinks, such as cola and whiskey. They are working with product designers to come up with a portable detection kit within a year.
