WASHINGTON — Pittsburgh U.S. Attorney Mary Pat Buchanan, who  bumped up against her share of controversy during her eight-year reign, and gained notoriety for prosecuting comedian Tommy Chong’s drug paraphernalia shop, is stepping down Nov. 16, the Associated Press reported.

The news agency said Buchanan, a Bush appointee who was going to be replaced anyways by the Obama administration, was looking forward to the next chapter in life, whatever that may be.

Last year, Buchanan  had expressed a desire to stay on as U.S. Attorney, but that never seemed like a possibility. The Justice Department recently launched an investigation into complaints of  improper behavior after she stated publicly that a local medical examiner was guilty of various charges even after her office dropped the charges.
