We pick La Crosse County District Attorney Tim Gruenke’s his brain Thursday on La Crosse Talk PM on a few things surrounding weed possession — now legal in Minnesota and kind of in La Crosse — and where did the gun come from, in something like the mass shooting that happened in the city last month.
La Crosse Talk PM airs weekdays at 5:06 p.m. Listen on the WIZM app, online here, or on 92.3 FM / 1410 AM / 106.7 FM (north of Onalaska). Find all the podcasts here or subscribe to La Crosse Talk PM wherever you get your podcasts.
We began the show, though, getting an update on a dead body found along the Bud Hendrickson Trail.
After that,we spent a few talking about some of the terms floating around having to do with former President Donald Trump, including “grand jury” and “Indictment.”
Then we got into a couple different things surrounding marijuana, including how authorities determine whether your under the influence and how long that stays in your system — a bit different than alcohol. That stemmed a bit from a conversation the day before with La Crosse Police Sgt. Danny Mandujano.
Also, the city of La Crosse has a $1 fine system for those caught with less than 25 grams of weed. But what if you’re caught every day with that amount?
After that, we talked guns, and some of the cases recently involving guns, including that drive-by shooting, where the assailant threw the gun onto a roof, and downtown murder, where the killer, Timohty Young of Spring Grove, Minn., made what’s called a ghost gun, from scratch, by buying all the parts online.
