More and more film producers are shooting their movies outside of Southern California. What's behind this so-called runaway production. L.A. Times business reporter and columnist David Lazarus tries to answer that question and see what some are doing to stop the exodus. KPCC's Patt Morrison argues that no matter how blasé we are about seeing a movie star, or a mass of film trucks parked in our neighborhood, deep inside we love the idea that our home town is the center of the film universe. And after years of inaction, the L.A. City Council finally approves a tough ordinance regulating the city's medical marijuana clinics. We'll ask what took so long, and will the ordinance stand up to legal challenges?
