((SUMMERTIME IS TYPICALLY A TIME FOR CUTS AND SCRAPES SO ITS IMPORTANT TO BE UP TO DATE IN HOW TO CARE FOR THEM. BUT THERE ARE 4 COMMON MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE IN CARING FOR WOUNDS-
NUMBER ONE: IS NOT USING PRESSURE TO STOP THE BLEEDING.
THE BEST WAY TO STOP BLEEDING IS TO HOLD DIRECT PRESSURE ON A WOUND. YOU DONT WANT TO DAB AT ITS AND BE LOOKING AT IT EVERY 30 SECONDS TO SEE IF ITS STOPPED BLEEDING.
MISTAKE NUMBER TWO.- YOU DON'T CLEAN THE WOUND PROPERLY.
NOW YOU MIGHT THINK PEROXIDE OR IODINE IS THE BEST THING TO USE TO CLEAN A CUT. BUT AT FULL STRENGTH THEY CAN DAMAGE NORMAL TISSUE. THE BEST THING TO USE TO CLEAN A WOUND IS SIMPLE TAP WATER.
MISTAKE NUMBER THREE IS TRYING TO AVOID STITCHES.
SOME REASONS YOU MAY NEED THEM INCLUDE A WOUND THAT WONT STOP BLEEDING.. A WOUND THAT LARGE OR GAPING-- IF YOU'VE GOT COSMETIC CONCERNS- OR IF THE BODY PART THATS CUT DOESN'T WORK LIKE IT SHOULD.
AND HERE'S A QUICK REMINDER- DEPENDING ON THE BODY PART - WE USUALLY HAVE 6-12 HOURS TO STITCH A CUT.
AND MISTAKE NUMBER 4- FORGETTING THAT TETANUS SHOT
IF YOU HAVEN'T HAD A TETANUS SHOT IN TEN YEARS THEN YOU NEED ONE- IF ITS A DIRTY WOUND THEN ITS FIVE."

Police in Lambeth say arresting marijuana smokers isn't worth the effort... because offenders usually get off with a small fine...(CBS) and there's little evidence to connect the drug with serious crime.

(smokers)(CBS)

...so for the next six-months, in a pilot project, police officers here will simply warn marijuana-smokers and confiscate their drugs..
Police Commander Brian Paddick/Metropolitan Police (CBS) BITE: 3645 you could spend, two officers spending 5 or 6 hours doing the paperwork, doing the interviews, multiply that by the over 600 arrrests we had last year you're talking about a hell of a lot of money.

(CBS street scenes)

It's been a popular move among residents who want the police to concentrate their scarce resources on stopping hard drugs and violent crime.

(SKY file)

For others - like the hundreds of marijuana supporters who march through Lambeth every summer - it's a step toward complete decriminalization.
SUPER: Chris Sanders, Cannabis Coalition UK (CBS) 0415 the message there is if you want people to not abuse drugs, legalize it, legalize cannabis so we can use it maturely 0425
BRIDGE THE LAMBETH POLICE PILOT PROJECT HAS BEEN SURPRISINGLY UNCONTROVERSIAL. MANY PEOPLE...FROM THE POLICE COMMISSIONER TO CONSERVATIVE POLITICIANS ... THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO EASE UP ON MARIJUANA SO THE POLICE CAN CRACK DOWN ON MORE SERIOUS PROBLEMS.... BUT, THEY INSIST, FULL LEGALIZATION WOULD BE A MISTAKE.

(APTN) SUPER: Kenneth Clarke, Conservative Politician (BBC)

I think it's a big leap from the present situation where the police very sensibly don't usually prosecute people for possession of a small quantity to go on and say the drug should be readily available around the corner from where you live.

(BBC) But other conservative voices argue that marijuana is now likely

to be legal here in less than 20 years.
SUPER: Peter Lilley/Conservative (BBC) BITE: (APTN) Public opinion is way ahead of where politicians have been and it's time that we broke the taboo on discussing the subject.

For Britons, the discussion now is whether the Lambeth experiment is just a common sense solution to a limited policing budget...or the first step down a very slippery slope.

Heavy rains flooded parts of Virginia and West Virginia. Yesterday, crews rescued residents trapped inside mobile homes washed away in rain-swollen creeks in Wyoming County.
At least one person died after being swept away. Meanwhile, dozens of people were rescued in Tazewell County after being stranded in their homes. The Red Cross opened three shelters in Tazewell County to assist families that were forced from their homes.
