Howard Arenstein, a correspondent for CBS Radio News, and his wife, Orly Azoulay, a correspondent for an Israeli newspaper, were busted for growing 11 marijuana plants (average height: 8 feet) in their Georgetown home, investigators said. Each plant could produce about a pound of pot, Radar notes. Click here for more on Arenstein (via CBS) and here for the latest on California's legalization debate.
