DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A 2-year-old dog from Des Moines named Tank won the Beautiful Bulldog contest at Drake University.

Pageant organizers narrowed a pool of over 100 hopeful pups by a lottery held last month.

DENVER (AP) — Denver police say there have been no major problems as marijuana celebrations continued for a second day.

On Saturday, police issued about 60 citations. Police say most were for public consumption. No information was available on any arrests on Sunday.

While recreational use of marijuana is legal in Colorado, people can't use it in public. But the law is widely flouted, especially around the 4/20 celebrations.

Marijuana tourists in town are already celebrating Monday's unofficial stoner holiday of 4/20.
