Intersection: Friday News Round Table

Play Audio

Florida has begun processing medical marijuana ID laws.

Medical marijuana is one step closer to the ballot in 2016- the amendment failed last year after it fell just shy of the 60 per cent of voters needed to put it in the constitution- but supporters now have enough signatures to trigger a supreme court review. Can it make it all the way back to the ballot?

Then- there’s a proposal to change the way drivers’ licenses are issued- move them from the county tax collector’s offices to a centralized system that would mail the license out.

And- bears have been getting a lot of attention in Florida- but what about the Florida panther? The state wants more federal involvement in managing the iconic animal- but what does this mean for the animal’s survival?

The Friday news round up on Intersection with Darryl Owens, Rhetta Peoples and Jason Garcia.
