Daily Roundup: CBS News Chief Busted Growing in D.C.

Which seems crazy, because D.C. is such an anti-pot town, loaded as it is with spooks, bureaucrats and lobbyists who don’t want to lose their coveted federal clearances. Police say they acted over the weekend on a “tip”. Meanwhile, D.C. gets ready to open its first medical marijuana dispensaries following years of obstruction by the federal government.
