Vince Gray gets lunch invite from Obama

By Washington Post editors

Mayor-elect Vincent C. Gray said he is scheduled to have lunch with President Barack Obama on Dec. 1 -- an invitation that will bring the city's new leader closer to the city's most high-profile resident.

Gray disclosed the invitation, which he said he received from a White House staffer Tuesday, during a news conference to announce his transition team.

Gray began his speech by immediately addressing the city's divides. He said the election revealed that they still exist, but "it also became clear that there is much that unites us as a city."

The House of Representatives of the Northern Mariana Islands has approved a bill that would legalize, regulate and tax the use of marijuana in the U.S. commonwealth.

The Saipan Tribune reports the measure passed Wednesday on a 10-7 vote, with one abstention and two representatives absent.

Calif. Marijuana Legalization Measure Loses

The bill by Independent Rep. Stanley Torres would allow people at least 21 years old to "possess, cultivate or transport marijuana for personal use."

It would also permit the regulation and taxation of the commercial production and sale of marijuana to people at least 21 years old. However, the bill would prohibit possession of marijuana on school grounds and its use in the presence of minors

Maybe he'll talk about how he'll transfer his two daughters from private school to the DC public school system. Maybe not. I guess it's time for yet another photo op at Ben's Chili Bowl.
