Are you still confused about how Pittsburgh’s medical marijuana dispensaries will operate and what they will actually do? You’re not alone. Pittsburgh City Council will host a post-agenda hearing in July on medical marijuana at the request of Councilman Corey O’Connor, whose district is the site of a proposed dispensary. O’Connor’s chief of staff, Curt Conrad, told The Incline, "People are still pretty confused."
Pittsburgh's member of Congress, Mike Doyle, was with his congressional baseball team practicing Wednesday when he heard there had been a shooting at the GOP practice in Del Ray, Va. House Majority Whip Steve Scalise was injured and the gunman was killed. "I called the players off the field and into the dugout and told them what happened," he told TribLive. "It seemed prudent to get everyone off the field. Then it was sort of just a stunned silence." Doyle then led his colleagues in prayer.
In August, Port Authority plans to switch to a cashless fare system on light rail. That means officers would do random fare checks, which immigration advocates say could lead to more deportations. "They are basically turning [light rail] into a border checkpoint," Monica Ruiz of Casa San José told Pittsburgh City Paper. Not so, according to Port Authority spokesperson Adam Brandolph, who told the paper their police officers don't communicate with ICE.

Hundreds of thousands of people (650,000, if you believe city officials' estimate) gathered in Downtown on Wednesday to hail their hometown heroes, the Pittsburgh Penguins. That included 9-year-old Riley from Buffalo, N.Y., who was one of several people dressed as the Stanley Cup. Relieve the parade — including Olli Maatta chugging a beer — by checking out our photos.
Pittsburgh also brought its A-sign game to the Penguins parade. Obviously, there were catfish signs (like "They throw fish. We throw parades"), as well as signs asking for hugs and pictures. There was even one touting "Jews for Geno." See the best here.
