FROM THIS EPISODE

Tomorrow, the Los Angeles City Council is scheduled to take another stab at a question other cities resolved long ago -- or did they? Is it legal or not to sell medical marijuana at California’s nonprofit dispensaries? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, existing technology could make air travel faster, more fuel efficient and cheaper, but the air traffic control system won’t be updated until 2025.  We hear why and what passengers can expect in the meantime.

Main Topic Plotting a Flight Plan for the 21st Century 27 MIN, 36 SEC

Last week, The New York Times reported that "planeloads of passengers heard pilots blame the air traffic control system as they sat on the tarmac." The problem itself was confined to the Northeast, but it caused problems all over the country.

Main Topic LA City Council Takes Up Medical Marijuana Ordinance 26 MIN, 16 SEC

Since California voters approved Medical Marijuana 13 years ago, the legislature has passed a law intended to lay out a process for distribution. Many cities have limited the number of dispensaries and regulated sales. Not so the City of Los Angeles. Tomorrow the City Council will make another stab at the problem with both the City Attorney and the District Attorney threatening action if the Council gets it wrong.
