A white police officer goes on trial in Pittsburgh tomorrow. He's accused of fatally shooting an unarmed black teen last summer. Even though it happened in Pittsburgh, the jurors in this case are coming from the city of Harrisburg. A judge had ruled that pretrial publicity in Pittsburgh posed a threat to a fair trial. From member station WESA, An-Li Herring has more details.

The green, serrated leaves of cannabis are something you might expect to see on a college campus — perhaps grown secretly in a dorm, or emblazoned across clothing of students who support marijuana legalization — but certainly not within a college classroom.

At the University of Connecticut (UConn), cannabis is taking center stage in the biggest lecture hall on campus.

The university is teaching a whole class focused on growing just this one kind of plant. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it's a popular class — around 300 students have signed up.

After the New Zealand massacre was broadcast live on Facebook, it quickly went viral on various social media platforms.

Companies including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube scrambled to take it down, but once something goes viral on social media, it's difficult to stop its spread. And that has been raising questions about live broadcasting on social media and who should have access to it.

The alleged shooter seems to have first advertised the attack on the online forum 8chan, a message board known for right-wing extremist users.
