circa 04/16/94   [untitled - College Students in Survey Favor Legalization]

LEGALIZE IT?: The results of a new survey showing that American college
students overwhelmingly favor the legalization of marijuana comes as a surprise
to anti-drug and pro-legalization advocates alike. Allen St. Pierre, spokesman
for the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, said the U.
Magazine survey of 1,700 students at 230 schools shows the media has failed to
recognize the growing support among students, environmentalists and doctors for
legalization. But anti-drug advocates questioned the accuracy of the survey. Sue
Rusche, executive director of National Families In Action, said drug-use trends

UPce 02/16/94     Bloomington sees record pot bust, makes marijuana a ticketable offense

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. (UPI) -- Bloomington city officials recently lessened the
criminal penalties for possession of marijuana, but that will not do two Texas
men any good.
   A new city ordinance approved Monday says people caught by police with less
than 2.5 grams of marijuana will only receive a ticket and $250 fine.
   The two men, Billy Wayne Sessions and Lonnie Session, both of Childress,
Texas, were caught Tuesday just north of Bloomington driving a truck containing
2,740 pounds of pot valued at $5.48 million, buried underneath 33,000 pounds of
cabbage.
    Illinois State Police, who made the arrest, say the more than a ton of

By Stan Darden
     ATLANTA, Oct 26 (Reuter) - Authorities seem puzzled about how to deal with
an alleged drug trafficker known as "Robin Hood" who curries favour with
inner-city residents by sharing his prosperity with the poor and aged.
     James "Haircut" Watkins, 47, lives in the predominantely black Cascade
Heights section of Atlanta, which is known as the "Black Mecca" because of its
affluence, but runs a grocery store and laundromat in a poor downtown area.
     Aside from a federal conspiracy indictment last January that connected him
with the sale of cocaine and marijuana, Watkins is best known for his habit of

WEATHERFORD, Texas (UPI) -- A Parker County jury needed only 45 minutes to
sentence a Houston couple to life in prison for possession of marijuana, much of
it gift-wrapped.
   Prosecutors charged that William Darrell Baldwin, 44, and Denise Hanrahan
Swartz, 38, both of Houston, rented a plane at the McAllen, Texas, airport on
May 23, loaded it with marijuana, and flew to an airfield in southern Parker
County.
   Parker County District Attorney Amy Adams said an informant tipped state and
