Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

It's probably not a good idea to bring cannabis to work, especially if you work in a congressional building patrolled by Capitol police.

An aide to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer was arrested yesterday on charges of marijuana possession as he entered a Senate office building in Washington, D.C.

POLITICO reports:

Marcus Stanley, who served as a senior economic adviser and at one time worked on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee -- chaired by Boxer -- was stopped by a police officer Tuesday morning when he allegedly tried to "remove and conceal" a leafy green substance from his pocket during a security screening at the Constitution Avenue door of the Hart building around noon, according to a Capitol Police report.

Police confiscated the substance, which later tested positive for marijuana, and Stanley quickly resigned.
