World's Biggest Joint Abandoned
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep.
A group in Amsterdam has abandoned its plan to roll and smoke the world's biggest joint. They were afraid their project would be illegal, even in Amsterdam. Dutch authorities allow the personal use of marijuana, but you can only have five grams.

But they now say the small print in the law means their giant joint is not legally possible.
