Illinois residents involved in the state's Medical Cannabis Pilot Program might see action sooner rather than later after Gov. Bruce Rauner approved an issuing of licenses Monday. We talk with WBEZ reporter Susie An who has been talking to people in the business of making money from medical marijuana. And Illinois Public Radio Springfield Bureau Chief Amanda Vinicky outlines policy details. Also, we discuss the financial affects of a potential elected CPS school board.
The city trudges through it's fifth-worst blizzard to date. We hear from WBEZ Bureau Reporters with updates on road conditions, travel times and how Chicagoans are faring with the year's first big snowfall. Also, sounds from jazz musician Katie Ernst.
Today for our EcoMyths segment, Jerome McDonnell and Kate Sackman explore whether there is anything redeeming about snow. Our guest is Tim Loftus, Water Resource Planner for Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning.
