CBS reporter arrested on drug charges
Washington Post ^ | October 2, 2010 | Clarence Williams

Posted on 10/03/2010 5:54:33 AM PDT by george76

A veteran CBS Radio News correspondent was arrested early Saturday on drug charges after police searched his Northwest Washington home, and found marijuana plants growing in his yard, authorities said.

Police arrested Howard Arenstein and his wife at their home in the 3500 block of T Street and charged them with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. Arenstein is married to Orly Azoulay, Washington correspondent for Yedioth Ahronoth, the largest and most widely read newspaper in Israel.

Police executed a search warrant at the home Saturday after a tip from an area resident, and found 11 fully mature marijuana plants and six two-ounce bags of marijuana inside the home. ..

“with intent to distribute”

That raises the stakes bigtime.

A whole lotta so what? Now every media hack is going to add a few cups of paranoia to their daily diatribe. I'd rather have stoners running the state media than uptight,bitter trolls and nags who are way past mid-life and relax by lighting up a bowl instead of getting laid, which they can only do by prescription anyway.

What's the difference?

The DCPD must have seen this as an irresistible opportunity for an arrest and conviction of a highly visible target of opportunity.

Since he's a lib, there was zero chance of any LEO being shot in the raid, too.

What was he thinking? (Of course, he wasn't). Did he say: "DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?" when he was arrested?

What's the difference?

Drugs are illegal, just like illegal immigrants.

What's the difference?

Selective use of law enforcement means there is no law.

Don't like the law, change it.

No. He said, “Dave’s not here.”

Sure. But “intent to sell” is ridiculous for a dozen plants in the back yard.

He's probably one of those flakes that continually replays the opening credits of Star Trek trying to figure out which star the Enterprise is going to appear from.

Of the same ilk. Except that Dan probably can't blame his stupidity on pot smoking.

Ah the modern liberal farmer. I’m surprised there are no residency restrictions on gardening on your city property. Or maybe that’s what led to being exposed?

Wonder who the rat was. My guess is it may have been a Democrat politician who was involved with marijuana and who turned against Arenstein and/or his wife and stabbed him/them in the back.

The DC police don't seem to do much when Democrat bigwigs might be adversely impacted. Their failure to solve the Chandra Levy murder case for more than nine years and counting proves that.

BTW, Yedioth Ahronoth, the Israeli newspaper which employs Mrs. Arenstein, is a low-class tabloid.

Am wondering if this is not more to this than meets the eye. Will suspend judgment until we can see more of the fine print. . .As for the 'neighbor' reporting them. . .don't know; a plausible explanation but also an easy canned explanation. . .

Trust little of Washington Gov/politcs and this close to Elections and with an Israeli Journalist wife working for Israel's largest newspaper -involved here - trust nothing. . .

As you know, they not only grew it and smoked it, the fibers made great canvas ... until Dupont invented a substitute fiber and needed government help in promoting its use over the fibers from hemp. During WWI the boot covers, tents, ship canvases, and even clothing for troops was woven from hemp fibers.
