SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Thousands of marijuana smokers celebrated the annual 4/20 pot-smoking event yesterday at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Residents and workers on Treasure Island are questioning whether their health is being affected by the mold in aging buildings on the former Navy base in San Francisco Bay.

San Francisco officials say they do not believe the problem is widespread.
