Marijuana moves south
In 2011, Delaware lawmakers approved medical marijuana. Since then, only one dispensary has opened in Wilmington. Next month, Delaware’s second medical marijuana dispensary will open in Sussex County. In this week’s First Look, we head inside a new dispensary in Lewes to see what marijuana advocates hope will lead to full legalization of marijuana for recreational use.

First Person: Governor John Carney
Delaware Governor John Carney joins us in the First studios this week. We discuss the Smyrna prison uprising, the Governor’s budget proposal and more.

Blind book collector
A Victorian collection of books and art was recently donated to the library at the University of Delaware. With more than 9,500 pieces and worth more than $10 million, it’s the largest and most valuable gift in the library’s history. But the gift is only one part of our next story; the man behind the largesse rounds it out.

Delaware Education Desk
Governor Carney’s choice for state education secretary is the former superintendent of the Indian River School District, Susan Bunting. What are her priorities? Thats what Delaware education reporter Cris Barrish is here to tell us.

First Experience: ‘Due South’
Crossing borders, sharing ideas, breaking stereotypes. Those are some of the ideas behind the art exhibit ‘Due South’ at the Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington. Over the course of three years, area artists travelled to Sicily and worked with local artists there. They came back home and made work reflecting their experiences, it’s our First Experience this week.
