6:01 am
area investigative unit on a story that made national headlines. last month a woman was trapped and pulled under a muni train. muni is looking into a mishap last tuesday where a woman got her hand caught in the train door while getting off the train. another mishap last month was caught on video where the passenger's hand was caught in the door. she was trapped at the embarcadero station. in this past week's incident, the train operator realized the passenger's hand was caught in the door and opened the door about a block later. last month's incident prompted the agency to order new sensors to be installed.
6:02 am
muni says the problems with the door sensors date back to last october when they started inspecting the newer fleets but now they are expecting the older fleets as well. >> thank you, sharon. this morning president trump's trade war has a new battlen front a lot closer to home. tracie potts is live in washington. now he's going after mexico. >> reporter: he is. and the president says it's because of immigration. he want mexico to start across the border. in the meant he will tax everything they try to sell in the u.s. 5%. everything coming across the southern border starting in a couple of weeks. adding to that until it reaches
6:03 am
25%. a permanent tariff until president trump says they get immigration under control. we're getting reaction this morning from mexico reaction from mexico's president. a letter sent to the u.s. to president trump saying that taxes aren't the way to solve the immigration problem. he has his foreign minister on the way to d.c. today to talk about this. and reaction from democrats, too. here on capitol hill, they're not in session. but by twitter we have heard from at least one democratic committee saying this is not the way to deal with the situation, that the president has a basic understanding of immigration. no response from the white house on that letter or what the discussion, if any, with the mexican foreign minister might
6:04 am
be as president trump threatens to impose tariffs in just a couple of weeks. >> it is not just avocados. it is cars and steel. it could have an impact on families. thank you, tracie. new details on wednesday's kai on theic hit and run through tenderloin. police are naming the woman they say was behind the wheel. 25-year-old cherry neil is accused of striking two people in several cars with a stolen suv. police say she was doing all of this while invading officers over several blocks. surveillance showing the chaos. neil facing cower counts of felony hit and run and driving under the influence fda regulators are taking a closer look at part of the cannabis industry. >> yeah. it's a big thing and a big question this morning whether companies should be allowing -- or be allowed to use cbd oil in food, drinks and supplements. there is a lot of confusion about cbd right now.
6:05 am
ali wolf is live at meta san jose national airport when a look at what's going on. ali. >> reporter: good morning, marcus. well, if you're flying out of an airport like this one, you will be allowed to take certain cbd products through security and onto a plane because the tsa just said this weekend that they will be changing its policy on medical marijuana. but here's where it gets a little bit tricky. the fda currently does not approve cbd to be used in food, drinks, and other supplements. but that is not stopping companies from using it. as you may know, cbd products are easily available and very popular. you probably heard of it being sold in the form of gummies and drinks and supplements. even pet treats. it is predicted to become a $20 billion business. it is made from hemp. it does not have thc, so it will not get you high. people are already relying on cbd oil for pain relief from things like arthritis.
6:06 am
today's hearing is the first step to try to regulate the cannabis compounds. there has been some confusion reasonable, and that led to arrests. one woman was taken into custody at disney after being caught carrying cbd oil. and another had it in her back at an airport in dallas. >> i think it's a very good idea. it doesn't have the effects of it, you know, of like marijuana or something like that. people use it for health reasons. >> i don't use it, but i know people that do. >> reporter: watt today's hearing, the fda will hear from experts, some companies and ultimately they want to look into whether or not cbd is safe
6:07 am

6:15 am
subsidies of some of its rides, meaning uber prices could go up. the president will allow gas stations to sell ethanol year around. it is not clear they have the power to do this. here's what he said. >> all i know is you have a lot of farmers, right? and my administration is protecting ethanol, all right. that's what you want to hear. >> you have the chinese tariffs on soy beans. swine flu which means hogs eat soy beans. >> right. >> you have that. you have flooding.

6:18 am
fog. three miles of limited violate, hugging the coastline. we have thunderstorms lining up. remember that short wave trough that brought activity to the sacramento area. we are still going to keep that in mind today. as far as locally, the system stayed just far enough. we did not get any cloud cover. that kept temperatures below seasonable. morgan hill, 82. the interior valleys, mid-70s and 80 in concord. a little slower to clear.
6:19 am
santa rosa, 79 degrees. it will be a beautiful weekend. the low that has been bringing a lot of cloud cover will make its exit. high pressure will dominate. our temperatures will really begin their warmup into the start of the workweek. overall, a great weekend ahead. mike? vianey, looking over here to the roadways. a great drive right now. san jose, you see a little brake tapping 101 north of 680. we saw a lot more traffic. it is 6:19. this is right about the time where we see the second burst of traffic for the morning. the first burst never caused much slowing than you just saw. it is right there circling above the e in san jose. 101, 37, north of there.
