Pot or Not?, Louisiana Filmmakers and PBS Online Film Festival, North Toledo Bend State Park

Pot or Not? (05:05) What is Louisiana’s stance on legalized marijuana? While proposals to allow for medical marijuana in Louisiana failed this legislative session, even Governor Bobby Jindal expressed an openness to the idea. Would a reduction in criminal penalties encourage more use or does the state need additional laws in place to combat what some call a “gateway drug.” SHARE

Louisiana Filmmakers and PBS Online Film Festival (12:12) Love stories never get old and although many movies have been made around that central theme, there are still many more stories to be told. One of the latest is by three young Louisiana actors who have created a moving tribute that shows one man’s journey from heartbreak to hope. As Shauna Sanford reports, it’s part of the PBS Online Film Festival and your vote could put it over the top. SHARE

North Toledo Bend State Park (18:30) Looking for a 4th of July vacation spot? Consider the Toledo Bend Reservoir along the Louisiana/Texas border. Created in 1966, Toledo Bend Reservoir is the largest manmade body of water in the South and 5th largest in the country. Charlie Whinham takes us on a tour to the North Toledo Bend State Park and discovers plenty of fabulous fish stories that are actually true. SHARE
