It probably took 3 judges to get them to grant the warrants they were looking for. And the AttorneyRead More Registration and Disciplinary Commission (ARDC) is the "bar" you are looking for. You will find specific rules there and though anyone can lodge complaints, and all complaints are heard, the accused members of the bar have a right to defend themselves and their actions. The attorney for the arrested kid can file for sanctions, too, and move to suppress the information obtained by the warrant if it is judged to have been granted erroneously.

Carl Babcock: And what's wrong with getting high, Carl?...Do you fear losing a world where everyoneRead More lives under your boot so you can delude yourself with a feeling of superiority? If you want to accuse someone for lying for their own selfish needs, maybe you should look in the mirror first instead of psychologically projecting your personality traits onto others!

Esoteric, Why are you so hostile? 1-Getting high makes a person a hazardous driver, for instance.Read More Better to get high on giving oneself to making the world a better place. 2-not feeling superior, just sharing info! 3-not accusing anyone of being a liar, just sharing info to someone who has been misinformed. 4- Sorry I touched a nerve. Please don't take it personally. Peace.

Spreading misinformation doesn't help anyone.
Proposed legislation could make it legal for Iowans to buy and set off some fireworks, including Roman candles.

Right now you can get a permit to shoot until last year you only needed house insurance and $50.Read More Last year they require Trining in fireworks or a trained professional to be the one to shoot them. I think they should be sold here but should have the old regulations, and maybe a rule on how much open space you need to be able to shoot them.

Let' show Iowa we can be adults, and show our children we do care about safety. Let us make the choice.

The reporting is inaccurate. The ban was imposed because too many fireworks - explosive, notRead More sparklers - were causing severe injuries and major fires. Fireworks ARE explosives. I do not want us to be another Missouri. I want our citizens - especially our children - to be safe. Keep the law as it is.
