An FBI agent accused of using public funds to pay for prostitutes for himself and the people he was investigating in the Philippines denied wrongdoing Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reports. 

Agent Charles Ro was working undercover investigating weapons smuggling when he befriended three Filipino nationals by taking them to karaoke bars where women were topless, the LA Times reported.

Three suspects later arrested in the investigation claim Ro induced them to cooperate in smuggling weapons.

Defense attorneys, who were hoping to get the case thrown out, said Ro committed “outrageous government conduct.”

Ro said he was unaware of the Filipinos using money for prostitutes and said he doubts it happened, the LA Times reported.

DEA: Marijuana Legalization Will Lead to Increased Drug Use and Availability of Pot

The DEA maintains the legalization of marijuana in some states and cities would increase drug use and make marijuana more available, according to a federal report released Wednesday, Huffington Post reports.

“Recently, efforts to legalize marijuana have increased. Keeping marijuana illegal reduces its availability and lessens willingness to use it,” the DEA said in a financial recortds for fiscal year 2012. “Legalizing marijuana would increase accessibility and encourage promotion and acceptance of drug use.”

Recently passed laws legalizing recreational marijuana in Colorado, Washington and some cities are a challenge to the DEA, which yields to federal laws that ban the use of marijuana in all cases.

President Obama said decriminalized pot won’t be a priority for his administration, the Huffington Post reported.

But prosecutors Wednesday sought to depict him as an extremist bent on killing.

One email assessment by FBI Special Agent Isaac DeLong said Mohamud “wants to have it both ways” – as an extremist and binge-drinking college student, the AP wrote.
