Corrections for the Week of May 7 

The year the Ogden memo was released, bans on marijuana growing, and ShotSpotter in Detroit.

Our April 30 feature "Back in the Closet"contained several errors. It misstated the year in which the so-called Ogden memo was released. It was 2009, not 2008. Also, it was the City of Colusa that banned all marijuana cultivation in April, not Colusa County. And Sacramento County banned outdoor medical pot growing, but not indoor.

Our April 30 news story "ShotSpotter Lobbied Oakland Officials in Apparent Violation of Law" erroneously stated that the City of Detroit decided to sever its contract with ShotSpotter in 2012. In fact, the city decided that year not to sign a contract with the company.
