In this Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018 photo attorney Brian Blatz sits on the roof deck at his office in Los Angeles. When California broadly legalized marijuana on Jan. 1, Blatz with a background in banking and health care had been working for a year to set up a trucking firm . On its website, Long Beach, California-based Verdant Distribution made clear its ambition: to be the nation's pre-eminent business for transporting cannabis. But the choppy rollout of California's legal market saddled the company with costly delays, and it was undone in the end by an abrupt state rule change that allowed just about any marijuana business to become its own distributor, undercutting the need for stand-alone companies like Verdant to do the job.

The Army is looking for a few good robots. These robots won’t fight, at least not yet. But they will be designed to help the men and women who do. The companies making them are waging a different kind of battle. At stake is a contract worth almost half a billion dollars for 3,000 backpack-sized robots that can defuse bombs and scout enemy positions. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
