Orange County and medical marijuana

What did I do with my day on Tuesday? I attended a full meeting of the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Chairman Chris Norby -- a good guy, and I don't say that about very many elected officials -- put the issue of having the health department issue photo ID cards to medical marijuana patients on the agenda. Some 25-30 people came to testify in favor, so it took a long time. Here's the Register editorial that describes the outcome.

I was also interviewed by KCET, the Los Angeles public television station, for its 7:00 p.m. show, "Life and Times," sort of a local "news hour." That segment on medical marijuana is scheduled to be aired April 26.
