DENVER - Opponents of Colorado's marijuana legalization are expected to file a federal lawsuit on Thursday that will seek to shut down the state's new industry and which they say will accuse participants of violating racketeering laws.

Voters in Colorado chose to legalize the use of recreational marijuana by adults in a landmark 2012 ballot, even as the drug remains federally outlawed. Washington state has also legalized recreational pot, while Alaska and Oregon are following suit.

But the Safe Streets Alliance, a Washington, D.C.-based group which describes itself as a national non-profit aimed at reducing youth drug use and violent crime, said its lawsuit will allege that state and l

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti - At least 20 people on a packed Carnival float were killed when one of them touched a high-voltage power line, leading to electrocution and a fire, officials in Haiti said.

The accident occurred as thousands filled the streets of downtown Port-au-Prince for the raucous annual celebration. Witnesses said someone on the float used a pole or stick to move a power line so the float could pass under it.

The three-day street parade coincides with other Mardi Gras carnivals around the world and attracts large night-time crowds eager to witness competing music bands atop highly decorated floats.

At least 20 people were killed and 46 were injured, Nadia Lochard, a coor

CORBIN, Kentucky - 16-year-old Jason C. Hendrix was shot and killed Saturday. He regularly attended church, arriving early Sunday mornings to help set up in the movie theater also used for the church.

Hendrix had a 9mm semiautomatic handgun, two .38-caliber pistols, a double-barreled shotgun and backpack full of ammo. He seemed ready to kill someone or something.

It began as a standard traffic stop on Valentine's Day.

Driving alone, Hendrix failed to stop when a state trooper attempted to pull him over on Interstate 95. Police chased Hendrix and cornered him after he hit another vehicle at an intersection in Woodlawn.

"As officers approached the Honda Pilot, gunfire came from the

CHAPEL HILL, North Carolina - Three young Muslims near the University of North Carolina were shot and killed. The slayings suggests they were motivated by an ongoing parking dispute, police said.

A federal prosecutor added at a news conference Wednesday that the killings appear to be an "isolated incident."

"Events of yesterday are not part of a targeted campaign against Muslims in North Carolina," said Ripley Rand, the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of North Carolina. His office had no immediate plans to be part of the investigation.

But the father of two of the young women shot dead branded the killings a "hate crime." The Council on American-Islamic Relations called on pol

Former Apple CEO John Sculley, who basically fired Steve Jobs from Apple, the company he founded now says he wishes he would have hired him back.

"I wish in hindsight I had reached back to Steve and told him, 'I want to help you come back to Apple,'" Sculley told CNNMoney. "I wish Apple had hired him back sooner rather than later."

Sculley himself was forced out of Apple (AAPL, Tech30) in 1993 over a dispute about licensing Macintosh's software to other PC makers. The board was in favor of letting other computer makers use Apple's software, but Sculley was opposed.

After Sculley's ouster, Apple did end up licensing its software, which turned out to be a major mistake. By the time A
