Police accuse aide to Sen. Barbara Boxer of carrying marijuana into Senate office building

An aide to Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer has been arrested on charges that he brought marijuana into a Senate office building.

The office of the California Democrat said Wednesday that 43-year-old Marcus Stanley has resigned as an economics adviser to Boxer.

A summary report provided by the U.S. Capitol Police alleges that an officer saw a man enter a Senate building on Tuesday and remove from his pocket a green leafy substance that later tested positive for the chemical compound in marijuana.

Capitol Police Sgt. Kimberly Schneider confirmed that police arrested Stanley.

A spokesman for Boxer says the senator accepted Stanley's resignation because his actions, in the spokesman's words, "were wrong and unacceptable."
