The campaign to bring medical marijuana to Florida will face what may be a massive roadblock on Thursday. Florida’s Supreme Court will hear arguments on the case brought by Attorney General Pam Bondi. She says the proposed language for the ballot gives too many people access to the drug.
While the case is about what the voters would see on the ballot University of Miami law professor Donald Jones says the court will have to consider the entire argument for medical marijuana.
Lovers in happy times often take intimate photos and videos of each other. But after an angry break-up, those images can become weapons.
It happened to Holly Jacobs, a Ph.D.-level researcher who lives in Florida. A month after her break-up, someone -- and she suspects her ex-boyfriend -- posted nude pictures and sex videos of her all over the Internet, sometimes on specialty "revenge porn" web sites.

Long before any Hispanic boy bands tormented or tantalized the radio air waves, the soup/stew Menudo was a siren song sung to me for the first time back in my younger days in a little grocería named ‘La Bodega’ in Diamond Lake, Illinois.
Maybe it was the alleged attributes of Menudo being able to cure a hangover that first led me to its pleasures. It must've been something strong to convince me Menudo is not made with things I normally consumed in my boyhood.

We won't claim to be experts at this, but most of us at WLRN-Miami Herald News have been in the thick of an Art Basel fair or two. Through years of reporting on Miami's biggest annual art event, we've gathered a few favorite Basel traditions.
If you want to know how we survive Miami Art Week, and do it like us, read on.
WLRN-Miami Herald News brings Art Basel to you through our digital coverage -- and our community of listeners.
Art Basel goes beyond the Miami Beach Convention Center. In the next few days, we want to know what you think about the art, people, and events you're seeing throughout South Florida during Basel. Here are two things we're looking for:
Our holiday spirit showed last week, when we ran stories of name-your-price puppies at the shelter, the allure of Miami's old Jewish delis and speculations about the future of our local book industry. But here's what you liked best:

But some Wynwood natives have been pushed out. The neighborhood's gentrification is explored in the documentary "Right to Wynwood."
Miami-Dade County Public Libraries have a big financial hole to fill. In order to stave off closing branches and laying off dozens of employees, the Miami-Dade County Commission this year raided the library's reserve fund. That will leave an estimated $20 million deficit in the next fiscal year. In order to generate ideas for the library of the future, library director Raymond Santiago has gathered together a task force with "everything on the table." That means the possibility of higher taxes to support public libraries.
