A charge of violating a state law on possession of medical marijuana was dropped Thursday against an advocate who helped get the law passed. The Burbank City Attorney's office dismissed a citation against Valerie Corral for allegedly not having proper identification that allowed her to carry marijuana under the state's Compassionate Use Act. Corral, of Santa Cruz, was cited July 27 when she was found with 5 grams of marijuana at Bob Hope Airport. A conviction on the citation carried a penalty of a $100 fine, the state's lowest misdemeanor, Alvarez said.

A lawsuit challenging the city's hiring of an out-of-state lawyer to deal with litigation involving Bob Hope Airport was dismissed Wednesday after city officials refused to produce a contract between the city and the attorney, citing attorney-client privilege. Burbank resident Mike Nolan, who challenged the city's use of Denver-based attorney Peter Kirsch on airport matters, was placed in an unwinnable position by having to present the contract on what was supposed to be the first day of trial Wednesday in the case before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William F. Fahey, said Nolan's attorney, Michael Bergfeld.

A 20-gallon drum of butane cigarette lighters exploded at the Bob Hope Airport Wednesday injuring a federal security employee. The minor explosion closed a hallway of the terminal for about 10 minutes, and did not result in any air traffic delays, airport officials said. The container burst at 10:15 a.m. in an administrative office in the hallway connecting the two airport terminals, Bob Hope Airport spokesman Victor Gill said. An Transportation Security Administration employee was moving a 20-gallon plastic drum filled with cigarette lighters collected from passengers when the container dropped, causing a small explosion inside the drum, popping the lid off the container, Gill said.
