Employee Charged After $80,000 & Prescription Forms Reported Stolen From Scottsburg Doctor

After a 10-month investigation, Indiana State Police last week charged a Scottsburg physician’s office employee with theft, forgery, fraud, and corrupt business influence.
Courtney Brewer, 28, of 694 East Marshfield Road, Scottsburg, turned herself in to the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg on Thursday, July 19, after a probable cause affidavit was presented earlier that morning by the Scott County Prosecutor Chris Owens in Scott County Circuit Court.
According to ISP Sgt Jerry Goodin, the arrest was the result of a nearly ten month long investigation that was initiated when a Scottsburg doctor noticed possible prescription fraud within his practice. After uncovering the possible prescription fraud he then noticed what appeared to be fraudulent transactions in his bank statements and other funds, Goodin reported.
ISP Sgt. Tracy Spencer from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg was assigned to investigate and discovered Brewer, an employee at the doctor’s office, allegedly stole money and prescription forms which she wrote for controlled substances.
“The stolen money totaled about $80,000 and there were over ten controlled substance prescriptions stolen and fraudulently written to her,” Goodin reported.
Brewer was booked into Scott County Jail just before 1 p.m on July 19 facing charges of charges: Corrupt Business Influence, Fraud on a Financial Institution, two counts of Forgery, 11 counts of theft, 12 counts of prescription forgery.
Goodin said the investigation is continuing.

Hemp Should Be A Hoosier Crop

by Curt Kovener

As reported on the front page a bill being studied this summer by the Indiana legislature could allow southern Hoosier farmers to grow a new crop: industrial hemp. The bill, authored by Rep. Jim Lucas of Seymour, passed the house earlier this year and was gaining support in the Senate when Gov. Eric Holcomb gave a thumbs-down further consideration
Like the baby with the bath water, hemp, and its much more popular cousin marijuana, were made illegal in the 1930’s. More on that in a bit.
What is industrial hemp? A variety of the cannabis sativa plant that contains less than 0.3% tetrarahydro-cannabinol (THC) concentration. THC is the chemical that provides the drug effect of marijuana where its concentration levels generally range between 5% and 20%, although higher concentrations occasionally occur.
To say another way, hemp is near beer to marijuana’s moonshine.
Perhaps it might be easier to view the differences between hemp and marijuana like we view sweet corn and field corn. Both of the corns are in the same biological family but eating the former is more tasty than the latter even though young immature field corn can be substituted on the dinner plate. It just lacks the sugar content and is a bit more al dente.
Industrial hemp is a fiber-producing agricultural crop that is grown in more than 30 countries throughout the world, including our neighbors to the north, Canada.
Industrial hemp is visually distinguishable from marijuana because of the purposes for which it is grown. Industrial hemp, grown for its long, strong and light fibers, is a single stalk often reaching a height of six feet or more. Marijuana plants are shorter and bushier with numerous branches with unfertilized flower clusters where THC is accumulated.
Marijuana is not self-pollinating. There are male and female marijuana plants. Pot growers will pull up and discard the male plants. The remaining females are longing for love and male companionship and as a result, their unrequited flower buds attain a higher level of THC.
Hemp and marijuana will cross pollinate but when they do, the marijuana’s THC is dramatically reduced. And that is not what the grower or the consumer are seeking.
The fact that the plants can cross pollinate could make the illegal marijuana growers some of the more vocal opponents of legalizing hemp because it would decrease the buzz of their buds. Remember that the next time someone opposes its legalization. It doesn’t necessarily mean they are looking out for the community’s morality or your children’s interests.
And from a marijuana control perspective, what better way than to let nature take its pollinating course?
Up until 1937 hemp was used for rope, sail and tent canvas, writing paper, clothing and other fiber. Hemp seeds can be crushed into an oil which is used for cosmetics and medicinal applications.
For a historic perspective, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson grew hemp. Jefferson used hemp paper for the first several drafts of the Declaration of Independence.
Given the many uses of hemp and the fact that it does not contain a significant quantity of the psychoactive THC, one wonders why its production was and continues to be prohibited in the United States. It is apparently the result of a combination of factors which converged in the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937. At that time, the outlawing of substances to protect the morality of the America public was being pushed by crusading elected officials and religious leaders.
(Remember, prohibition didn’t work so well in America…except for organized crime & bootleggers.)
But there may have also been more personally profitable motives for outlawing heemp.
Newspaper magnate William Randolph Heart supported making hemp illegal for his own financial purposes. At that time, the Hearst empire included large tracts of forest that provided wood pulp for the newsprint used by his and other newspapers. Hemp has the advantage of growing faster and producing more paper per acre than trees. Fearing hemp-based paper could give his competitors an advantage and make his forestland less valuable, Hearst editorialized for making marijuana and hemp illegal.
With the current tariffs on wood-based newsprint, a Hoosier hemp newsprint manufacturing plant could be a homegrown answer leading to jobs and a market for Indiana farmers growing hemp.
The eventual decriminalization of industrial hemp at the federal level appears to be inevitable. Kentucky has already put into the bluegrass state’s laws the right to raise hemp.
The Bluegrass Commonwealth, a state considered backwards by some Hoosiers, is more than six years ahead of Indiana in the legalizing and growing hemp. Kentucky farmers are growing hemp for seed, oil and fiber and are developing markets for their product. That should rather make Hoosiers reconsider which state is really backwards.
The question facing the summer study committee and the Indiana legislature is whether Indiana should be positioning its farmers to take advantage of a new opportunity when it becomes available, or should we continue to ban the production of a beneficial and potentially profitable crop because of out-of-date misconceptions and prejudices.
