The news is out this afternoon, CBS Radio News Bureau Chief Howard Arenstein and his wife Orly Katz are free after charges have been dropped in the case due to a witness that was a no-show at their hearings today.  It’s likely they’ll be re-filed, but for now, Arenstein and Katz are free.

Arenstein and Katz are likely to try the “for personal medical use” excuse, according to the City Paper, which has a source with knowledge of their defense. As many have said, the new laws in the city concerning medical marijuana do not permit citizens to grow their own medical marijuana, which means they’re probably not going to see a lot of support in that regard.
