Morning Juice: Marijuana, Equestrian Racing Events May Cloud Judgment

What isn't South Florida smoking on this Tuesday morning?

  • Cash for Clunkers is finally finished bailing out the dealers like Auto Nation of Fort Lauderdale and the gullible consumers they tricked into thinking they could afford gas-guzzling cars. The Sun-Sentinel's Mike Clary and Brian Haas report the story without using the phrase "orgy of idiocy."
  • We told you last week about Maury Hernandez, the BSO deputy who is suing the state for failing to better supervise the ex-con who shot him during a traffic stop. Now WSVN is reporting that Hernandez wants to return to police work.
  • Following his recent Twitter frenzy, Heat forward Michael Beasley has checked into rehab, reports Michael Wallace at the Miami Herald. Marijuana, when will you stop tormenting our nation's finest athletes?
