Inbox: Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina will have her appeal of a $5,000 fine for allegedly evading House metal detectors upheld, the House Ethics Committee announces.
Foxx was heading to a vote & according to an incident report by U.S. Capitol Police in May, she evaded a magnometer, brushed off a request for her to stop and then allegedly told reporter Olivia Beavers "Why don't you deal with things that are important?"…
The comment to Beavers, as first reported, was prompted because Beavers saw Foxx skip past the magnometer and said, "I don’t want to get you guys in trouble, but I’m going to be reporting on that."

Starting today in Virginia: Adults 21 and older can legally possess weed in the commonwealth. You can't have more than 1 oz of cannabis though + no intent to distribute. The commonwealth legalized it back in April. Ppl with over 1lb of weed? You face up to 10 years in prison.
Though legal possession of small amounts of marijuana is effective today in Virginia, you still cannot legally consume it public. And you can only own up to 4 plants at home for personal use.
