FROM THIS EPISODE

The forests of derricks are gone from Southern California, and production is on the decline. But new extraction techniques may open the massive Monterey Shale Formation, creating another oil boom. Will the jobs and the money be worth the consequences of fracking and acid-ization?

Also tonight, Mike Feuer’s been Los Angeles City Attorney for more than 100 days. We’ll ask him about enforcing new limits on medical marijuana dispensaries and preventing gang injunctions from violating civil rights.

Reporter's Notebook LA City Attorney to Begin Shuttering Pot Dispensaries 13 MIN, 51 SEC

City Attorney Mike Feuer has announced a crackdown on 38 pot shops in the City of Los Angeles, and they could be the first of many. Hundreds reportedly operate now, and in May voters enacted a ban, except for those that applied for licenses before 2007. Feuer has issued a list of 134 he says qualify for the exemption.
