Two men pleaded guilty Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Bluefield for their roles in a drug trafficking conspiracy, announced United States Attorney Mike Stuart.

Shawn Akiem Anderson, 44, of Mount Hope, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute less than 50 kilograms of marijuana.

Karl Funderburk, 31, of Teays Valley, pleaded guilty to using and carrying a firearm during a drug trafficking crime.

Anderson and Funderburk are two of 23 defendants indicted in June 2017 after a comprehensive investigation of drug trafficking in southern West Virginia, Stuart said.

Anderson admitted that between May 2017 and June 28, he conspired with others to distribute cocaine, heroin and marijuana.

On February 2nd, 2018 members of the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office arrested Perry Jackson for possession of 1.47 pounds of suspected marijuana and over $5,000 in cash.

Jackson was out on attempted murder charges, after being granted a surety bond of nearly $52,000 and was released on February 6.

On February 22nd, Berkeley County Sheriff’s office and Charleston County Sheriff’s office was searching for Jackson and found him at the Bridgetown Road Apartments in the ST. James area of Berkeley County.

There the deputies found in Jackson’s possession, a firearm, what they presumed 1.5 pounds of marijuana and just more than $2,000 in cash.

“I am hopeful that Perry Raekwon Deshawn Jackson will be held accountable for his actions. The fact that not even a month ago he was arrested on very similar charges while out on bond for attempted murder says that he does not desire to be a productive member of society. Rather, he is a danger to society,” Sheriff Duane Lewis stated.

The Charleston County Sheriff’s Office had warrants for Jackson so they took custody of him.

The West Virginia Medical Cannabis Advisory Board (MCAB) has recommended that state legislators expand the state’s medical cannabis laws to allow certain patients to purchase and smoke marijuana flower. The current law, which was passed last year but will not go into full effect until 2019, prohibits patients from purchasing or smoking cannabis flower or growing their own plants. Instead, patients are allowed to purchase medical cannabis in a form that can be vaped, or in the form of pills, oils, liquids, or topical gels.

The board’s recommendation would not technically legalize the smoking of medical cannabis, but instead would only allow patients who have received individual approval from the state Department of Health and Human Resources (DHHR) to acquire cannabis flower. It would then be up to the patients themselves to choose whether or not to light up their new stash.

“People can combust [cannabis] themselves if they want, but that’s not what we’re advocating or recommending,” Dr. Rahul Gupta, commissioner for DHHR’s bureau for public health, said to the Charleston Gazette-Mail.

The MCAB also voted to recommend that state legislators remove or

The mother of the South Carolina woman who gouged out her eyes outside of an Upstate church described to People magazine the ordeal she has been through since her 20-year-old was discovered outside of a church holding an eyeball in her hand.

Katy Tompkins spoke with People for a human interest story after her daughter, Kaylee Muthart, suffered self-inflicted injuries that occurred under the influence of drugs.

Tompkins provided updates on Muthart’s condition and recovery, something that is going to take a long time. “Each day at a time, she just gets a little better and better.”

She also expressed her feelings and struggles as she tries to cope with this difficult situation. “That was a struggle … it was horrifying. Complete terror.”

Tompkins also revealed that she was so worried about Muthart’s downward spiral into drug addiction before the incident, that she was planning to have her daughter committed.

But Muthart told her mother she would enter rehab the following week, according to Tompkins.

“The day before it happened, which was my birthday, I was getting ready to have

Dieuson Octave, better known as rapper Kodak Black, was hit with two new felony charges Thursday, even as prosecutors announced they were dropping three others.

Black, 20, was arrested in January after he posted a live video on Instagram showing him at an alleged pot party, with guests smoking marijuana within inches of Black’s infant son, according to a Pembroke Pines police report.

Another guest was allegedly playing with a pistol near the baby.

Black was on probation and house arrest since August 2016. Last year he was accused of violating probation but was released four months later under strict probation conditions.

He has been ordered not to have any drugs or guns in his possession.

The Instagram video led prosecutors to believe he not only had committed new crimes, but violated his probation in the process. The probation violations expose him to an eight-year

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia’s medical marijuana board will recommend that state lawmakers allow patients who meet certain requirements to buy smokable forms of the drug.

The board met Tuesday afternoon and also plans to recommend that legislators increase or remove a cap on the number of growers, processors and dispensaries in the state, and allow a company to serve more than one of those roles — meaning a grower could also be a processor — the Charleston-Gazette-Mail reported.

The board did not approve adding any conditions to the list of conditions patients must be diagnosed with before doctors can recommend medical marijuana.

Under current West Virginia law, doctors can prescribe cannabis for patients who are terminally ill or who have seizures, cancer, chronic pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, AIDS and other specified conditions

In addition to limiting marijuana use to people with listed conditions, state law allows patients to start receiving medical marijuana ID cards in July 2019 but prohibits them from growing and smoking their own marijuana.

It also sets fees for companies to get involved and
