A New Drug Epidemic, Young Voter Trends, and Peter Mondavi

We begin today with a look at a new report by county auditors that says L.A. taxpayers are still footing the bill to incarcerate a huge number of juvenile offenders, even though arrest numbers are going down.

Meanwhile, the current heroin epidemic has led to a kinder, gentler strategy than the “War on Drugs” of the ‘80s and ‘90s.

Next, an increasing number of voters are declining to state their party. Why, and how is it playing out in the presidential race?

Over the weekend, California winemaking legend Peter Mondavi died. We look at his life and work.

And finally, in our regular food segment, a look at the trend of pop-up restaurants.
