Instead, the cases were referred to city prosecutors for the possible filing of misdemeanor trespassing charges, said Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the district attorney.

Afroman's smash hit "Because I Got High" offers a strong anti-drug message. Try making that statement with a--pardon the expression--straight face. The song may detail the perils of pot use, but it's delivered with a wink as big as the giant spliff Afroman wields in the song's video. But there is a sober tone, literally and figuratively, in Afroman's voice as he talks about his ditty.

Missouri Rehabilitation Center Director Don Lamkins said the protesters were initially allowed in public areas but arrests were made later in the morning because some of the protesters blocked the stairwell to the second floor, which also serves as a fire exit, attempting to get to her room.
