Tears streamed down Claudia Jendron's face this year as her doctor patted her hand and told her, after eight years of failed pain treatments for her spinal fusion-gone-wrong, "This is going to work, Claudia." She was talking about medical marijuana. Then, early this year, the 66-year-old upstate New Yorker got a prescription for medical marijuana to help what she called “excruciating pain." To Jendron’s surprise, her doctor was right about the weed. New York is one of 29 states (plus the District of Columbia) that have legalized medical marijuana--a trend that 94 percent of Americans support, according to an August Quinnipiac poll.
A driver saw a shoe on a dark Charlotte, North Carolina, road late Wednesday. What he did next made all the difference in helping police find a hit-and-run suspect. The driver on Shopton Road West in southwest Charlotte had earlier been heading to a store when he saw a man walking on the side of the road, according to police. The driver, whom police have not identified, spotted the shoe when he was returning from the store. On nearby Pilcher Drive, he also saw a parked 2006 Kia Sorento with lots of damage, police said. He realized the man he’d seen earlier might have been hit by the car, so he immediately returned to the scene and found the victim lying in grass off the right side of the road.
On a fundraising page she has since set up for the man, Kate McClure, 27, wrote that she pulled off an exit ramp on I-95 near Philadelphia late one night when she realized her car was running out of gas. A homeless man, Johnny Bobbitt, 34, spotted her vehicle and approached to offer her assistance, she said. Bobbitt, who McClure said she later learned is a Marine Corps veteran and a former firefighter, had used his last $20 to buy her gas.
