Clarifications for the week of June 17, 2015 

United Nations Foundation and Assembly Bill 266.

Our June 17 art story "Oakland's New International Icon" did not properly distinguish between the United Nations and the United Nations Foundation. In addition, our June 17 Legalization Nation column, "A Tectonic Shift for Pot," should have clarified that Hezekiah Allen, director of the Emerald Growers Association, did not have independent knowledge of the governor's office's involvement in the negotiations of Assembly Bill 266, but rather that he had been told of the governor's office's involvement.
