Headline highights of Senate hearing on federal pot policies

I am going to let headline writers and links to a bunch of press stories serve as a means to summarize yesterday's hearing before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary on “Conflicts between State and Federal Marijuana Laws”:
  • From ABC News here, "Feds in Talks With Banks Over Dealing With Marijuana Business"

  • From AFP here, "US will continue to jail pot dealers 'in all states'"

  • From the Detroit Free Press here, "U.S. needs smarter approach to marijuana policy, Sen. Patrick Leahy says"

  • From the Kansas City Star here, "Congress asked to provide fix for cash-only pot stores"

  • From the Los Angeles Times here, "Senators examine federal marijuana laws as states' rules evolve"

  • From the New York Times here, Answers Sought for When Marijuana Laws Collide"

  • From the Seattle Times here, " King County sheriff promises crackdown on public, underage pot smoking"
