Today's the last day of the CMU Spring Carnival. If you go early enough, you can see self-driving buggies Transistor and RoboQuasar.

The two state senators who championed medical marijuana in Pennsylvania are hopeful the program will be running by Valentine’s Day 2018. At a conference here Friday (which you can also go to today), the lawmakers emphasized that there’s no firm timeline, as growers and processors will still have to, well, grow and process cannabis after they receive licenses. And of course, the conversation also turned to what’s next — namely, recreational pot.
