Veteran CBS Radio News correspondent Howard L. Arenstein, 60, and his wife, Israeli newspaper journalist Orly (Azoulay) Katz, 57, made a brief appearance in D.C. Superior Court Friday in connection with their Oct. 1 arrest for possession with intent to distribute marijuana.

The couple appeared before D.C. Magistrate Judge Karen Howze with their attorney Jonathan Zucker. Howze scheduled the couple's preliminary hearing for Nov. 16 before Magistrate Judge Kimberley S, Knowles.

According to court charging documents, police received an anonymous tip that the couple, who reside in Georgetown in the 3500 block of T St. NW, were growing marijuana plants in their backyard.

Police discovered 11 eight-feet tall plants in the couple's yard and six, 2-ounce bags of marijuana were found inside the house.

Just legalise it already.

The harm from persecuting users is far greater then from actually smoking it.

Marijuana isn't the problem, the criminalization of it is.

You mean non-stereotypical "criminals" smoke it, too?! No way!

It would have been interesting to know whether they were alleged to have been using it medicinally, recreationally or for some other purpose.
