Terror Investigation: Feds Investigating Najibullah Zazi's Contacts In Queens

AP | TOM HAYS and DEVLIN BARRETT | Posted 05.25.2011 | Denver

Three suspects charged in a wide-ranging terror probe are going to court in New York City and Denver.

Colorado air shuttle driver Najibullah Zazi (nah-jee-BOO'-lah ZAH'-zee) and his father have detention hearings later Thursday in Denver. A New York City imam, Ahmad Afzali (AKH'-mahd ahf-ZAH'-lee), has a hearing in New York City.

The three were charged last week with lying to FBI investigators trying to uncover a possible plot to detonate homemade bombs. Officials remain unsure of the scope or target of a possible terror attack.

They're casting a wide net to try and determine who might be connected to Zazi, who authorities have linked to al-Qaida. Hundreds of investigators are back at a Queens neighborhood that was the site of antiterror raids over a week ago.

Health board nixes change to Colo. pot use

AP | COLLEEN SLEVIN | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

Colorado health officials are considering whether to make medical marijuana rules more restrictive.

The state health board has opened a hearing Monday on a proposal to limit marijuana providers to five patients each. The move is aimed at dispensaries that have sprouted to serve a growing number of patients across Colorado.

Hundreds of people have packed a hearing room on the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver.

Colorado voters allowed the use of medical marijuana in 2000 by passing Amendment 20.

The board voted to limit caregivers to five patients in 2004, but a Denver judge threw that out three years later because the limit was enacted without a hearing.
