Canadian Boarder Patrol officials noticed a small amount of marijuana therefore detaining Putterman for attempting to smuggle drugs into Canada.

During the process, officials then discovered text messages from Lana Putterman (sister to Putterman) discussing how to fix damage to his 2006 dark blue Hyundai Sonata.

Straight Guys Reveal They’re Having A lot Of Gay Sex

by Joe Morgan

Straight guys are having a surprising amount of gay sex, according to the latest national survey.

Researchers have interviewed more than 9,000 men and women aged between 18 and 44 between 2011 and 2013. Americans were asked to talk about their sexual experiences, who they are attracted to and how they label their sexual orientation.

And guys who identify as straight are having quite a bit of gay sex.

The CDC learned 1.9% of men said they were gay and 2% were bisexual – up from 1.2% from the last survey.

However, 6.2% of men said they had engaged in either oral or anal sex with another guy.

So this means, at least 2.3% of men engaging in gay sex who say they are straight.

‘You do expect some differences,’ said Casey E. Copen, the lead author of the study. ‘For some people … they may or may not have had the experiences they’re contemplating, [especially] if they’re younger.’

Alabama top justice tells judges not to issue gay marriage licenses

Alabama’s top justice said Wednesday that state probate judges should not issue same-sex marriage licenses, despite the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling legalizing gay marriage last year.

Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore cited conflicting rulings and said until they are resolved, a prior directive from March telling judges to comply with the state’s gay marriage ban would remain in effect.

He wrote: “Until further decision by the Alabama Supreme Court, the existing orders of the Alabama Supreme Court that Alabama probate judges have a ministerial duty not to issue any marriage license contrary to the Alabama Sanctity of Marriage Amendment or the Alabama Marriage Protection Act remain in full force and effect.”

Moore issued a similar order last year. It’s unclear what impact the decision will have in the state, where some officials are issuing the licenses and others are not.

Susan Watson, director of the ACLU of Alabama, called Moore’s order “silly” and said it wouldn’t change the fact that most Alabama judges are issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

Moore said in Wednesday’s decision that even though the U.S. Supreme Court invalidated anti-gay marriage laws – he cited laws in Michigan, Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee  — “confusion and uncertainty exist among the probate judges of this State as to the effect” on existing orders in Alabama.

He continued, “Many probate judges are issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples in accordance with Obergefell (the Supreme Court case); others are issuing marriage licenses only to couples of the opposite gender or have ceased issuing all marriage licenses.”

Moore said the broader issue remains before the Alabama Supreme Court, “which continues to deliberate on the matter.”
