HOUSTON, Tex. Houston police are sweeping the city today with arrest warrants for participants in what a prosecutor calls an "organized crime-style" marijuana cultivation ring that distributes pot all over the country.

Two people were in custody this morning and more are expected to be arrested by day's end, Paul Doyle, of the Harris County District Attorney special crimes division, said shortly before noon today. Doyle declined to say how many people are targeted.
