Meta Faces Federal Probe Over Alleged Illegal Drug Sales On Platforms

Federal authorities are investigating Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, over allegations that its platforms facilitate the sale of illegal drugs. According to documents and unnamed sources, federal prosecutors in Virginia have issued subpoenas related to a criminal grand jury probe, requesting records concerning violative drug content and illicit drug sales on Meta's platforms. Despite Meta's efforts to remove such content and cooperate with law enforcement, the company faces scrutiny from lawmakers over the potential harm to young people, particularly children, from content on its platforms.

North Korea fired ballistic missiles into the sea on Monday, marking their first launch in two months. The event occurred as U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken visited Seoul for a conference hosted by President Yoon Suk Yeol. South Korea's military reported multiple short-range missiles were fired from a region south of Pyongyang, landing east of the Korean Peninsula. Japan condemned the launches, with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida calling them a violation of U.N. resolutions and a threat to peace and security in the region.

In South Carolina, John Barnett, a 62-year-old man set to testify against the Boeing Company, was found dead with what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head. However, a family friend claims that before his death, Barnett warned her that if he were found dead, it would not be the result of suicide. Barnett's lawyers and family have expressed disbelief that he would take his own life, and his family has requested that police investigations reflect their concerns about foul play.

These events highlight the ongoing challenges faced by law enforcement and society as a whole, from the fight against drug trafficking and the threat of international conflict to the need for thorough investigations into suspicious deaths. As these stories continue to unfold, it is crucial that authorities remain vigilant and committed to seeking the truth and ensuring justice is served.
