FL Mass Murderer Held Competent:  CBS Miami reports that the Eleventh Circuit has denied the claim that mass murderer John Ferguson is not mentally competent to be executed.  Ferguson was convicted of the execution style murders of eight people in 1977.  Last year Florida Governor Rick Scott signed his death warrant.  

Med Marijuana Users Can Drive in Michigan:  The Michigan Supreme Court unanimously held that medical marijuana users have some protection against a conviction of driving while intoxicated in a ruling Tuesday reported by the Associated Press.  While it is illegal for drivers to consume marijuana in the state, the medical marijuana law "shields" registered patients for the internal possession of the drug according to the court.  The prosecution must show the driver was actually under the influence.  Unlike alcohol, there is no defined blood concentration limit, but the court invited the legislature to establish one.  The decision overturned an appeals court ruling which held that the defendant, medical marijuana user Rodney Koon could be prosecuted for driving under the influence.
