The Needle: Carry on, but Don’t Light Up

Open Pot: Starting at midnight, marijuana will be decriminalized in the District, which means if you get caught carrying marijuana in public, you will be fined just $25. Lighting up, though, is still a crime. Oh, and if you do get slapped with a fine, the kind folks here at WCP are willing to cover it for you. +4

Flagrant Foul: For whatever reason, Buzzfeed decided to compile a list of D.C.'s seven ugliest government buildings, as if D.C. is the only place with ugly, concrete government buildings. -2
