WASHINGTON (AP) D.C. police say a fourth person has died after a drive-by shooting in southeast Washington. A police spokeswoman says the person was among nine hit yesterday when a gunman sprayed bullets into a crowd of people.

WASHINGTON (AP) Washington would allow people to have up to 2 ounces of marijuana a month, enough for about a joint a day, for medical use under a bill that has moved forward. The bill approved by two city government committees yesterday would not allow patients to grow their own marijuana, but a committee would study whether to allow so-called "home cultivation" by patients and caregivers and make a recommendation by 2012.
