    Rachel Sorrow, at left, a transgender woman, attends a therapy session with Dr. Dan Karasic, a psychiatrist with the Center of Excellence for Transgender Health, at San Francisco General Hospital in San Francisco, Friday, July 20, 2012. The nation’s psychiatric establishment is wrestling with questions on proper treatment of transgender people as it works to overhaul its diagnostic manual for the first time in almost two decades. Advocates have spent years lobbying the American Psychiatric Association to rewrite or even remove the categories typically used to diagnose transgender people, arguing that terms like Gender Identity Disorder and Transvestic Fetishism promote discrimination by broad-brushing a diverse population with the stigma of mental illness.

A policy barring foreign tourists from buying marijuana in the Netherlands goes into effect in parts of the country Tuesday, with a protest planned in the southern city of Maastricht.

The government has said that as of May 1, only holders of a "weed pass" will be allowed to purchase the drug, and nonresidents aren't eligible. (AP Photo/Peter Dejong)
