Marijuana bust: Ohio students headed to Aspen arrested for possession

Pot is now technically legal in Colorado for recreational use -- but smoking underage on a bus bound for this state most certainly is not. That was a tough lesson for a group of Ohio students who were caught with marijuana and other drugs on their way here for an Aspen ski trip. But they didn't make it very far. Four students were arrested in Indiana and charged with felonies -- and dozens more were cited for illegal consumption.
