Monopoly Pot Calls Competitor Kettles Black

“The Justice Department confirmed Monday that it is conducting an investigation into possible anticompetitive behavior in the parcel-delivery market,” the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday. “United Parcel Service Inc. and FedEx Corp. both said in January that they were being investigated by the Justice Department.”

That takes stones.
