The South Florida Roundup

The Florida Roundup: Medical Marijuana's Sticky Web


The Governor signed the Charlotte's Web medical marijuana bill. Some Florida doctors will be able to start writing prescriptions on January 1. But how will the system work?

Does certain work experience disqualify you for public office? Some would say David Mech, a former adult film actor, should not be in the running for the school board. He joins us along with candidate John Hartmann. Both are vying for the position currently held by Karen Brill.

Guest host Christine DiMattei also speaks with Jim Defede of CBS4, Kelli Kennedy of the Associated Press, Sergio Bustos of the Miami Herald, Tim Padgett of WLRN-Miami Herald News.
