>> announcer: this is the "cbs overnight news." cardinal daniel dinardo of houston has been one of the most outspoken critics of the way the catholic church has handled the priest sex abuse scandal. last week he gathered 300 bishops in baltimore to address the ongoing crisis. but a cbs news investigation found cardinal dinardo has some issues of his own. nikki battiste has been trying to get him to talk to us for three months and finally tracked him down in baltimore. >> reporter: this summer a priest cardinal dinardo had promoted was arrested for allegedly molesting two children in the late 1990s. cardinal dinardo vowed by
january to release a list of all the priests in houston who have been in the church's judgment credibly accused of sexually abusing a child. but we spoke with victims who say dinardo still has their abusers in active ministry. >> i shrank. i was like i'm not here. i left my bobody. >> reporter: john labonte, who is speaking out for the first time says cardinal dinnardo has allowed this priest john keller to continue at one of the largest diocese in houston. labonte says keller molested him when he was 16 years old. >> at your lowest point what were you feeling? >> i didn't want to be around. i was just consumed by pain. >> reporter: labonte broad his allegations to the archdiocese. in 2002 he says he told them that father keller plied him with alcohol and fondled him in his bed on an overnight trip. >> well, you know, right here where it says, you know, "acted very inappropriate." >> reporter: a letter from the archdiocese says that father keller acknowledged holding
labonte in a manner inappropriate for a priest but "denies any sexual intent." ultimately, the church "could not conclude that what happened constituted sexual abuse." the church promised to put father keller into therapy, and cardinal dinardo has kept him in active ministry. >> peace be with you. >> reporter: at prince of peace church where our cbs news cameras captured cardinal dinnardo visiting recently. >> just last week we saw cardinal dinardo in father john keller's church. what does that tell you? >> if he knows, then he's a liar and it makes me angry. >> reporter: we pored over court records and turned up graphic allegations against a second active previous in houston. in a sworn affidavit a victim accused father terence brinkman of wearing his priest collar as he "sodomized me" as a 12-year-old in the 1970s. attorneys for cardinal din-somardo's archdiocese argued that the statute of limitations
had passed and the case was thrown out of court. today father brinkman is a priest at st. john the evangelist. in a statement father brinkman denied any involvement saying "i cannot tell you that these events did not take place. but i was not the person who did them to him." and the archdiocese says the victim "provided a physical description that does not match father brinkman." >> all i wanted for them to say was yes, he did it. and i believe you. >> reporter: elodia flores along with her siblings monica and raymond were all molested by another priest in houston, father lawrence peguero, who died in 2000. after they sued the archdiocese, they met personally with cardinal dinardo. >> we were invited to meet with him, but our attorney felt this would be maybe closure, an opportunity to receive an apology. >> how would you describe his demeanor, raymond? >> he didn't care. >> reporter: cardinal dinardo in a statement told us that he
apologized during the meeting. >> did any of you get an apology from cardinal dinardo? >> no. >> no. >> no. >> nikki battiste from cbs news. how are you? >> i'm doing fine. but i'm going to a meeting. >> reporter: we spent three months asking for a formal interview with cardinal dinardo. he never made himself available, so we caught up with him in the hallway during the conference of the u.s. bishops in baltimore last week. >> are you aware that you have two priests with credible sexual abuse allegations currently in active ministry in your diocese? >> it depends what names you're talking about. >> father john keller and reverend terence -- >> that's not a credible one. and kerterry was never -- was nr credible. >> are those two names going to be on your list of credibly accused priests that you'll release in january? >> we're working on the list. >> does the name john labonte sound familiar? >> yes. i would prefer to do this at another time. >> we've been requesting. we'd love to sit down. >> at another time, yeah.
>> is there anything you'd say to the survivors and victims? >> what would you say to father keller today? >> come clean. you step up. >> what would you say to cardinal dinardo? >> don't leave any stones unturned. put effort into it. fix the problem. >> cbs news has spoken with more than 20 people with knowledge of allegations made against priests in the archdiocese of galveston-houston. not one has been contacted by church authorities or investigators. in a statement to cbs news cardinal dinardo said that the church has made important strides in addressing this evil. but he went on saying "we can and will do better." on a lighter note, marijuana envy is growing in new england after massachusetts became the first state east of the mississippi to allow the legal sale of pot. lawmakers in vermont and maine are working on their own regulations to allow people to buy cannabis from licensed
vendors. it's already legal to use marijuana in both states. meanwhile, the two legal pot shops in massachusetts are doing big business. tony dokoupil's at the one in leicester. >> welcome to cultivate, where more than 1,000 people came through here yesterday for day one marijuana purchases. the most popular item, a strain called chocolate o.g. now, if you're thinking that looks a lot stronger than the stuff i remember, you're probably right. and sales are booming. >> three, two, one! [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: the first two licensed pot shops in massachusetts opened on tuesday with high excitement. >> legal! >> reporter: and long lines. thousands waited as much as five hours. >> i'm 64 years old, and i used to have to run from the cops when i bought pot in the past. so i figured i wanted to do it legally. for the first time. >> ten strains available. >> reporter: inside cultivate customers were presented with a
daily menu selection with varieties including tropicana cookies and purple punch. but it's not cheap. one ounce of raw bud at cultivate costs $420. >> got a couple good things. way too many edibles. >> i am going home and i am going to be enjoying them with my grandmother. >> it's like your coffee in the morning. >> it's like your coffee in the morning and not like your wine at night? >> you know, it can be both. >> reporter: sam barber is cultivate's president and co-owner. >> there's a lot of wrong information going on out there about this product. and again, it is about doing it, like anything, in a safe, balanced way that's healthy. >> people think this has actually gone through some kind of safety and efficacy that we even know what it is. it hasn't. >> reporter: kevin zabet is a former white house drug policy adviser and president of smart approaches to marijuana. >> you're relying on a state that is being heavily influenced by the marijuana industry themselves to basically tell you that your product is safe. colorado has seen hundreds of thousands of individual products
recalled because of additives and other kinds of back-tieria and molds that are in these marijuana products. so it's really buyer beware. >> next. >> reporter: but that's not scaring away consumers. the number of americans reporting daily or almost daily marijuana use jumped from a little over 3 million in 2002 to just over 8 million in 2017. >> this isn't about the individual user. this is about a green light to an industry that is taking all of their plays from big tobacco, that lied to the american people for almost a century. why would we get fooled again? >> and speaking of sales, here in massachusetts by one estimate smailz could reach a billion and a half dollars. of course no telling if and when federal legalization could come through. but americans already consume about three times as much lilly. she pretty much lives in her favorite princess dress. but once a week i let her play sheriff so i can wash it. i use tide to get out those week old stains and downy to get it fresh and soft. you are free to go.

so do you think you have a good taste for food? well, lee cowan paid a visit to perhaps the most famous food designer in all the land. >> all right, bird. >> nice bird. >> reporter: although the bird might disagree, few thanksgiving turkeys have been so lucky. in the hands of sarah massoni, any food from fig to fowl is destined for gastronomic greatness. >> just shove it up in there as much as you can and as far back as you can. >> reporter: she's an alchemist of taste. just look at her butter.
mixed with rosemary, sage and garlic. and that's only after her turkey has taken a 36-hour dip in her citrusy brine. finally, to add one more savory note, she weaves a blanket of bacon on top. >> all of the bacon fat is going to go down through the turkey and give it a whole different layer of flavor. >> reporter: massoni wasn't just getting a head start on thanksgiving. >> now we wait. >> reporter: she was demonstrating her job, as a food designer. here at oregon state university's graeming food innovation center. >> we have spice rubs. lots of beautiful hot sauces. >> reporter: hundreds have paid big dollars to get sarah's culinary counsel. >> there's actually a floral note to this product. >> reporter: making sure their new food products are both safe and sumptuous. >> p.h. 6.14. >> reporter: a food science
background gives her the technical knowledge to do what she does. but she has a physical attribute too. >> i knew that there was something different about my tongue, but i mean most people don't spend a lot of time looking at their tongue. >> reporter: her tastebuds, she says, are actually bigger and better than most, giving her what some call a million-dollar palate. >> i like to joke and say i have a billion-dollar palate. >> a billion-dollar palate. >> yes. because i've helped so many people become million-dollar companies. >> so what's your first ingredient that you're working with? >> reporter: jay perry is a chef who was hoping to get some advice on his new line of salad dressings. and he got a mouthful from massoni. >> there's something in this that's not right. >> bitter. no, you've got too much mustard. >> she's done this for so long she can detect every little nuance of flavor. >> reporter: at portland's salt & straw ice cream you can get all manner of flavors, including one that tastes like sweet
potato casserole. >> we have also have like cranberry sauce. >> reporter: head ice cream maker tyler math worked with massoni for months and he says few people can turn such complicated flavors into a reality. >> we spent the first six months of our company right there beside her. if we had technical issues like the caramel melting into the cream, we could game plan on like here's different techniques. and i think that's an amazing talent. >> reporter: it's that kind of praise from her clients that sometimes brings massoni to tears. why is it so emotional? >> well, i don't want to be on tv crying. because when i put my heart into a food product -- oh, my. and it's successful. it brings great joy. >> reporter: her emotional connection with food is as sweet as her ingredients. >> moment of truth. >> there is our turkey. >> reporter: with her turkey fresh out of the smoker, there
in all its browned bacony goodness, there was nothing left for sarah massoni to do but her job. >> you ready? >> cheers. >> when you humble yourself under the mighty hand of god, in due time he will exalt you. hi, i'm joel osteen. i'm excited about being with you every week. i hope you'll tune in. you'll be inspired, you'll be encouraged. i'm looking forward to seeing you right here. you are fully loaded and completely equipped for
we wrap up this thanksgiving broadcast with a note from our own john dickerson of "cbs this morning." he's giving thanks to the dozens of people who wake up in the middle of the night to put his show on the air. here's john. >> there are many ways to prepare for thanksgiving. brine the turkey. chop the wood for the fire. do the research for the political fights you'll have around the table. i prepare for thanksgiving by making a list of the things i'm grateful for. it's based on an essay from years ago by roger rosenblatt. it contains items big and small. the new yorkers who texted us
when they found our lost dog. stumptown coffee roasters. at the top of my inventory this year are the people you never get to see at "cbs this morning" but whose work you see every time you watch the show. if there's a piece you liked or a question that helped you learn something or simply if the show has become a part of your morning, it's these colleagues you have to thank. they interrupt their plans to chase stories and bring you the people at the heart of them. they create entire villages in random spots to bring you live reports. they capture just the right shot and make sure the sound and lighting sings. they solve puzzles under hairy deadlines. they stay up all night as stories break while you sleep. they track information so we get it just right. and their graphics help make the complex understandabl. >> let's rock and let's recognize. >> they churn page after page of scripts tweaking words until sometimes just seconds before we say them.
they make our hair and makeup and clothes look just so in order for us to be at our best for the crew that manages the cameras, cables and chaos during the live broadcast. ♪ taking care of business >> those of us in front of the camera work hard to do work that is worthy of that collective dedication. so while you gather around your table, all those you're grateful for, we are grateful for all those gathered around our table each week. and one final note of gratitude, to all of you out there watching. thank you. and happy thanksgiving. >> and i would like to thank the six people in the control room who put this show on the air and the one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine people here and one outside, dave, who does audio. i'm not kidding. that is the "overnight news" for this thanksgiving thursday. for some of you the news continues. for others check back with us a little later for the morning news and of course "cbs this morning." from the broadcast center in new york city i'm vladimir duthiers. did i get the count right?
i got you, dave. i got a shout out. it's thursday, november 22, 2018. this is the "cbs morning news." it's an unseasonably cold thanksgiving day for tens of millions of americans in the east. but how will the weather affect new york's famous thanksgiving day parade? spectators are bundling up. >> we're prepared. we have our ski boots, hats, gloves and everything. firefighters are making progress against california's wildfires but rain is expected to bring new trouble.
