Teen Arrested During TV Interview

It's embarrassing enough when something bad happens to you if there are people around to witness it, but take that to another level: Imagine getting arrested in front of a news crew while you're being interviewed. That's exactly what happened to 18-year-old Reilly Neuklis, who was arrested shortly after the car he was driving collided with a school bus on Tuesday afternoon.

Local ABC affiliate WBND reporter Jessie McDonough was interviewing Neuklis about the crash when an officer arrested him for being possibly under the influence of marijuana. Apparently, a tipster alerted police at the scene that Neuklis may have thrown out drug paraphernalia in a nearby trash can after he hit the bus.

After the officer located the drug paraphernalia, he displayed it for the camera and explained to Neuklis, "In Indiana, it is illegal to have metabolites in your system while you are driving." The interview was cut short, and the officer took Neuklis to the hospital to be tested for drugs. One other student who had been in the car with Neuklis was injured and taken to the hospital, but no one else reported injuries.

Unfortunately for Neuklis, his embarrassment will now live on not just as a bad memory, but also in YouTube infamy.

...and yet somehow this guy was on the road in a state where it is illegal and caused the accident.

Legalization is not causation.

After all my grandmothers father was killed back during Prohibition...by a drunk driver.

Did the fact that it was illegal save his life? Evidently not.

This doesn't say if the drugs test came back positive or not.

If it comes back negative, that officer is going to look like a complete dick really.

I'm laughing at all the people calling the cop an idiot for saying metabolites and saying he obviously meant cannabinoids. They don't seem to realize what metabolites are...

I mean yes I realize that all sorts of things result in metabolites, but I think he was trying to keep it low-key because the camera was still on.

He really should have waited a moment though, because this will likely be viewed as prejudicial since it airs long before any judgment and now has a nationwide audience.

Good points Shane. But physical evidence will out weight that aspect.

I don't see the reason for anti-pot legalization coming beck an call for this. If your drinking while driving and you get in a accident your arrested. The same would apply to pot, they just need a way to test "highness". Lol.

Sorry, but I have to disagree. When an officer fails to use correct terminology, especially on camera, then he deserves any ridicule he gets.

In Washington they do have a method, which is a blood test. The problem is the limit they have set doesn't match the actual impairment values...so something needs to be done about that.

That's true, but he was just doing his job. Better safe than sorry, a rule this kid possibly wasn't smart enough to abide by if he was high.

The thing is that he referred to metabolites, which is the correct term when referring to what they test for to detect the level of intoxication. He didn't use the wrong word at all.

He used a more discrete term that can refer to multiple things rather than stating openly which drug was in use...

Metabolites is a broad and very generic term though. He specifically stated "it is illegal to have metabolites in your system while you are driving", which isn't correct. Everyone has metabolites in their systems at all times. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metabolite

I know what metabolites are...

My point was I think he was using that term to avoid specifically naming a substance on the news since it would need to be tested and positively identified first.

I also pointed out I feel he made a bad move performing that particular arrest on TV knowing it would air before court due to whole prejudicial thing.

yes there is a reason to block legalization. Legalization will increase the number of overall users, there by increasing the number of impared drivers. It's not rocket science.

But whatever.

For that reason then you might as well block any sort of fatty foods since fat can cause a heart attack...thus anyone who eats anything with fat may kill someone if they have a heart attack behind the wheel.

Just because some people are stupid doesn't mean we need to make things illegal. Otherwise we need to make alcohol illegal, smoking illegal, and various other things as well.

I can't tell you the number of times I've seen an accident caused by someone not watching the road while lighting a cigarette. Heck I actually had someone hit me on my bike one time while doing that. Luckily they didn't hit me hard enough to hurt me, other than a torn pair of jeans and a badly skinned knee.

I made sure their hood felt my fist though...

The point being still police intoxicated drivers yes...but don't make something illegal just because it can lead to something bad...otherwise life has to be ended since it is the ultimate cause of bad things. :p

Fat in food is not the same as intoxicating one's self with pot. You smoke it right? That's why you argue for legalization.

Weed will make you stupid bro. Toke it every day, after a bit you are stupider than before.

Actually I waited until I was 30 and only occasionally for my Degenerative Disc Disease.

BTW the only connection between weed and stupidity is with underage use. Once the brain is fully formed there is no connection. More damage happens with alcohol.

I'm not any more or less stupid than before. I'm still highly intelligent and able to process information just fine.

Usually any weird posts you see from me are from my phone while I'm on the go. I don't proofread those as carefully.

You're right though...weed is not the same as fat. You are more likely to die from bad dietary habits.

Good I hate stoners driving, if it's not okay for me to have a glass of whiskey while I'm driving, then what makes them think is it okay to smoke a joint while driving?

The only time I liked it was when a pot head who was smoking a joint while driving rear ended a tractor trailer, while it was stopped at a red light and I was in the other lane beside the trailer laughing so hard, the best part was the TT driver didn't even notice his trailer was hit and proceeded to leave once the light turned green, the guy's car a Honda was totaled and no damage was done to the trailer. I also left while the guy was smashing his dash, being ****ed off.

No one is arguing that driving while intoxicated is a good thing. In fact it is completely irresponsible.

I was pointing out that the cop probably blew the trial with his on-camera arrest that has now gone nationwide.

Weed impairs one's abilities while under the influence. That's the danger.

Sorry for your troubles. Glad to hear things are working out for you.

So we don't get to watch the actual video, just hear some annoying reporter yapping about it. *sigh* Maybe Liveleak will have it later.

Indeed it can. I actually have never had my license, by choice.

I had some serious seizures during childhood, and there is a good chance of recurrence at some point.

I don't want to be behind the wheel if that happens. So I decided in my teen years to voluntarily 'ground' myself.

I know that's not entirely relevant, but the point is I care enough that I make that huge sacrifice in convenience for the safety of others.

Exactly how do you figure? He was arrested on the SUSPICION of driving under the influence and taken to the hospital for testing. Regardless of the test outcome, the officer made the appropriate call based on the data provided at the time of the incident.

      Apps can no longer offer marijuana delivery services on the Google Play Store
      by Muhammad Jarir Kanji

      You will no longer be able to schedule your next delivery of marijuana using your Android smartphone. Google has added marijuana to its list of restricted content on the Play Store, meaning apps that offer delivery services for the psychoactive drug will soon be banned from its platform.

      The ban applies to all jurisdictions, regardless of the legality of marijuana in a particular state. The company's updated policies state the following on the matter:

      The two most prominent apps in the space are Weedmaps and Eaze, and both risk facing a ban if their apps are not updated within 30 days to remove any aspects enabling the sale of marijuana. Google has also released a statement regarding compliance with its policies, and how apps like Weedmaps can remain on the Play Store in light of the changes:

      This could mean that the apps would still be able to promote marijuana and possible even allow you to book deliveries, as long as the developers ensure that the actual sale process is redirected to the browser, for example. What the specifics of the solution are will probably become clearer in the next few weeks as the developers of affected apps update their wares.

      The move coincides with updates to the company's Play Store policies to make it safer for children.

      A US Food and Drug Administration advisory committee on Thursday unanimously recommended approval of an epilepsy drug that would be the first plant-derived cannabidiol medicine for prescription use in the United States.
       
      The FDA will vote in June whether to approve the drug, Epidiolex, an oral solution, for the treatment of severe forms of epilepsy in a small group of patients. The FDA has approved synthetic versions of some cannabinoid chemicals found in the marijuana plant for other purposes, including cancer pain relief.
       
      Cannabidiol, also called CBD, is one of more than 80 active cannabinoid chemicals, yet unlike tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, it does not produce a high.
       
      The committee's recommendation was delivered after reviewing data from the drug's maker, GW Pharmaceuticals PLC, a UK-based biopharmaceutical company.
       
      "We're obviously very pleased by the unanimous recommendation in support of the approval of Epidiolex," GW CEO Justin Gover said. "It's a very important milestone in the approval process."

      Vermont became the ninth U.S. state and third in the Northeast to legalize recreational marijuana use on Monday when Republican Governor Phil Scott signed a bill passed by the legislature earlier this month.
       
      The law legalizes possession of up to 1 ounce of the drug, two mature plants and up to four immature plants by people 21 and older beginning on July 1. It does not legalize trade in the drug.
       
      “Today, with mixed emotions, I have signed H. 511,” Scott said in a statement, referring to the measure by its legislative number.
       
      He noted that he had vetoed an earlier version of the bill that would have opened up sales of the drug, saying that a state commission would have time for further study before allowing a retail trade in recreational pot.
       
      Neighboring Massachusetts, nearby Maine and six other states have legalized marijuana use as a result of voter initiatives.

      HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut state worker fired after he was caught smoking marijuana on the job was punished too harshly and should get his job back, the state Supreme Court ruled Friday.
       
      Gregory Linhoff was fired from his maintenance job at the University of Connecticut Health Center in Farmington in 2012 after a police officer caught him smoking pot in a state-owned vehicle. He had no previous disciplinary problems since being hired in 1998 and had received favorable job evaluations, according to his union. He was arrested, but the charges were later dismissed.
       

       
      State officials said firing the New Hartford resident was the only appropriate penalty for his conduct and not doing so would send a bad message to other employees. An arbitrator disagreed and overturned the firing, saying Linhoff instead should be suspended without pay for six months and be subject to random drug testing for a year after he returned to work.
       
      The state appealed and a Superior Court judge overturned the arbitrator's decision on the grounds that it violated Connecticut's public policy against marijuana use. Linhoff's union, the Connecticut Employees Union Independent SEIU, appealed the judge's ruling to the Supreme Court.
       
      All seven justices agreed that the lower court judge was wrong to overturn the arbitrator's ruling, saying that while state policy on drug use in the work place allows for firing workers it does not require it. Justices also said that judicial second-guessing of arbitration awards is uncommon and should be reserved only for extraordinary circumstances.

      Microsoft partners with marijuana trade start-up
      by Matt Blowes



      Microsoft is breaking a long-held corporate taboo by teaming up with Californian-based start-up KIND Financial to help the legal marijuana trade stay legit. KIND Government Solutions will take advantage of Microsoft's Azure Government cloud platform to enable authorities to monitor the marijuana trade from "seed to sale".

      While Microsoft's venture will not directly involve the sale of marijuana, it is the company's first foray in the industry. KIND is promoting the software as a useful regulatory tool which helps to, "close the loop between marijuana-related businesses, regulatory agencies, and financial institutions."

      The announcement does set Microsoft apart from many large US corporations, who have so far avoided investing in legal marijuana. With the drug being legalized in Microsoft's home state of Washington in 2014, and other states including California voting on legalization this year, the barriers to investment are starting to fall.

      Microsoft's Kimberly Nelson said the timing was right for the Redmond-based company to get involved.

      It may be a relatively small investment for Microsoft, particularly after announcing it was purchasing LinkedIn earlier this week. But it is a significant step for a newly legalized industry struggling to shake a negative reputation.
