Medical marijuana facility on the way to Platte City

by Debbie Coleman-Topi
Landmark reporter

A Missouri agency has approved three medical marijuana facilities in this area: a transportation business in Riverside, a laboratory/testing facility in Platte City and a cultivation business in Smithville.

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services is the state agency that oversees the process to approve and license all forms of medical marijuana businesses. Those include infused products, manufacturing, cultivation, seed-to-sale, testing laboratories, dispensaries and transportation, said Lisa Cox, the agency's communications director.

Hundreds of firms applied to play a role in the legal production and sale of medical marijuana, but, tight regulatory guidelines have vastly limited those able to participate.

Houston Lake man guilty of stealing

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

A man who lists a Houston Lake address has been placed on five years probation after pleading guilty to charges of burglary, stealing and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Larry Dale Lopes, age 40, entered the guilty plea on July 19. Judge James Van Amburg accepted the guilty pleas, sentenced the defendant to seven years in prison but suspended execution of that sentence and instead placed Lopes on probation for a five year period to be supervised by the Missouri Board of Probation and Parole.

Lopes is also ordered to pay restitution of $2,000 to the victim in his burglary and stealing offenses. He is to pay $150 per month.

Spectator injured during mud event at fair

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

One spectator in the pit area was injured when struck by a participating vehicle in the Mud Marathon event Saturday night at the Platte County Fair, according to the Platte County Sheriff’s Department.

Major Erik Holland with the sheriff’s department said: "Apparently a vehicle at the end of its mud run ends up trying to avoid other vehicles and ended up hitting a person. She was able to walk to the ambulance to get checked out," Holland remarked of the incident, which occurred in the pit area, he said.

The father of the injured spectator, who is a 23-year-old female, told The Landmark his daughter suffered a broken scapula (shoulder blade), cuts to her head and bruises. She was taken by ambulance to a hospital for treatment. He confirmed his daughter was a spectator in the pit area.

Son accused of shooting father in Weston

by Ivan Foley
Landmark editor

A son is charged with shooting his father during a family dispute at Weston.

The father suffered a non life-threatening injury, authorities said, and the shooter himself was treated for an injury to his finger from the incident, which occurred at a residence in the 700 block of Cherry St. in Weston about 7:30 a.m. on Monday.

Michael A. Hull, age 30, is charged with a felony of assault in the second degree by means of a deadly weapon. He is in custody in the Platte County Jail with bond set at $35,000 cash only.

According to court documents, the father, identified by authorities as Tracey Hull, contacted the sheriff’s office to notify police he had been shot. The elder Hull told Weston Police Chief Terry Blanton that his son had just shot him.
