Tuesday on Lake Effect: Medical Marijuana Laws, Community Events, Beats Me, New Works At First Stage

Tuesday on Lake Effect

Local researchers discuss the pros and cons of medical marijuana in Wisconsin. Then, a look at some of the community events this month in Milwaukee’s central city and we discuss the scourge of the KK Can Opener. Our Beats Me series explores the historical and modern impact of Wisconsin's Native American community. And the folks from First Stage Theatre explain its dedication to producing new works.
