Family Of Teen Israel 'Reefa' Hernandez Will Sue Miami Beach Police



Governor Rick Scott kicks off the legislative session with a State of the State address touting tax cuts and job creation. The state legislature starts by advancing a bill legalizing a form of medical marijuana and passing tougher sex predator laws.   

A medical report on the death of Israel Hernandez, the teen who was tasered by Miami Beach police, finds that he died of a "sudden cardiac death." Shortly before the report's release, the police chief resigns.

We also hear the latest developments on the protests in Venezuela.

Host Tom Hudson speaks with Mary Ellen Klas and David Ovalle of the Miami Herald; Brian Bandell of the South Florida Business Journal; Girish Ghupta, a freelance reporter based in Caracas, Venezuela; and Tim Padgett and Sammy Mack of WLRN-Miami Herald News.
