Mother fighting to remove synthetic drug from LA stores

Good Thursday morning to you!  Britney Glaser here with a look at some of the stories we will be covering for you this morning on Sunrise beginning at 5:00 a.m.:

*A Louisiana mother is pushing stores to take a possible new synthetic drug off their shelves.  It is called "Blue Brees" and she claims that after her teen son smoked it, his speech became slurred and he could barely stand.

*An update this morning on the fight from Hobby Lobby and a sister company to be exempt from the federal health care law that would require them to provide insurance coverage to employees for the morning after pill.  Find out what U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor decided.

*Did you receive a Christmas present that you found funny or offending?  If so, a tweet of it could land you a free pizza!  We will tell you how to enter the contest.

*You may have noticed flaring at Sasol's Westlake plant.  The company says you may see more over the next few days.  Find out why this morning.

*An active member of the military who is wanted for murder in Texas is being held today in Vernon Parish.  Hear what led to the arrest of 21-year-old Andrew Norwine.

*Live interview in the studio with Sgt. James Anderson of Troop D State Police.  He will talk about DWI crackdowns as we approach New Year's festivities.
