A California lawmaker has introduced legislation to regulate the state's free-wheeling medical marijuana industry — the farmers that grow the drug, the hundreds of storefront shops that sell it and the doctors who write recommendations allowing its use.
Law enforcement officials say they have exhausted all efforts to recover a handgun thought to be used in the shooting of a 25-year-old man in an Appleton nightclub.
According to court records, a friend told police Lee ran to a nearby bar and flushed the gun down the toilet.
 the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call.
"At this early stage, we're focusing on the facts that we don't know," said Todd Curtis, a former safety engineer with Boeing who worked on its 777 wide-body jets and is now director of the Airsafe.com Foundation.
Military radar indicates that the missing Boeing 777 jet may have turned back before vanishing, Malaysia's air force chief said Sunday as authorities were investigating up to four passengers with suspicious identifications.
If the information about the U-turn is accurate, that lessens the probability that the plane suffered a catastrophic explosion but raises further questions about why the pilots didn't signal for help.
If there was a minor mechanical failure — or even something more serious like the shutdown of both of the plane's engines — the pilots likely would have had time to radio for help.
Either you had a catastrophic event that tore the airplane apart, or you had a criminal act," said Scott Hamilton, managing director of aviation consultancy Leeham Co.
A group of Atlanta entrepreneurs, economic development officials and others — dubbed Southern Fried — are heading to annual technology and entertainment festival South by Southwest Interactive to market the region as startup and mobile media hub.
According to its annual report, the Chamber helped match more than 100 startups with investors and customers, and created about 7,800 jobs in 2013.
"There are a lot of tools that we bring to the table to help companies expand in Atlanta," Simon said, noting that a network of colleges and universities, workforce training programs and state and local startup assistance agencies combine to make the city look attractive to entrepreneurs and investors.
Scott Henderson, managing director of CauseShift — an Atlanta production company that planned the Southern Fried showcase — said the diversity of the group's list of nearly 90 planned attendees is a testament to the metro Atlanta region and Georgia overall.
