Paul Brenner, the drummer for the nationally known rock band Joywave, based in Rochester NY, was shocked Monday to come face to face with about eight little scorpions and one big one (all alive) inside a package that had been delivered to him from Hawaii. “At first, I thought it was like a tick or something. I mean, they were really small,” said Brenner. "‘No, that’s a scorpion,'” Brenner said. The drummer said he’d ordered a T-shirt and some shoes from an internet seller in Hawaii. When he found the creatures, he called 311, and Rochester police responded with their cameras in tow. The police determined that the packaged scorpions did not appear intentional, but had made their way in prior to shipping. (WLNS.com 6)

The regulations will be subject to a 60-day period for public comment. A person would be able to grow up to six plants at a time. There would also be a 12-plant limit for each household. Only certified patients or their caregivers would be allowed to grow the plant. (PIX11)
