D.C.’s marijuana decriminalization law goes into effect tomorrow, making the fine for carrying pot less than the fine for littering. The police union, however, worries that the law is vague and will be confusing to cops on the street.
Fierce thunder and pounding rain began hitting the D.C. Area right around dinnertime Thursday, catching some pedestrians off guard and sending them scurrying to get to shelter. In the churning wind on Military Road NW near Rock Creek Park a tree came crashing down onto a minivan, crushing the windshield and part of the roof. The driver’s side window collapsed.
