NORTH DAKOTA—A sea of green began wafting over the United States in 1996 when California legalized medical marijuana. More than 15 states are following suit, that blazed the trail for Colorado to legalize recreational Marijuana in 2012.

WEST FARGO — A West Fargo man says his invention could more than double vehicle gas mileage. A newly built model shows how Ernie Brookins is turning 50 feet of driving with gas into 400 feet of driving without gas. He's already tested the prototype, which he built into his 1980s pickup. According to Brookins, the invention involves the vehicle accelerator building pressure in a tank while the vehicle is driven with the engine turned on. That tank then powers the engine without using any fuel, and the engine turns back on when it needs to recharge.
