californians should legalize recreational marijuana. some big names are throwing their support behind the push. anne makovec is live in san francisco. anne makovec reports. >> reporter: the adult use of marijuana act, today the campaign is officially going to be launched because this measure is going to be on the ballot in november. it would allow anyone to use ounce and grow up to 6 plants. retail sales would be taxed 15%. >> we look forward to taking resources out of the underground illicit economy and putting them to work creating jobs and tax revenue and improving public safety. >> reporter: if california
voters approve it, we would colorado, washington, alaska and oregon in legalizing recreational marijuana. there are some contingencies. they wouldn't be able to stand in the middle of the street smoking pot. you wouldn't be able to smoke it in public. and you're also obviously not supposed to drive high. this could create a slew of new laws as legislators and law enforcement try to figure out how to make sure that doesn't happen. also, some apartment complexes in some municipalities may restrict whether or not people can smoke pot in their apartments or places they rent. anne makovec, kpix 5. >> a similar measure was rejected by voters in 2010. what's different now? >> reporter: we do have some other states that have sort of set the example. they have done it and the states haven't, you know, blown up. so it gives californians something to go on when it comes to, you know, how good of an idea it might be. the latest poll from the california public policy
institute says that 55% of likely voters in california are in favor of the measure. by the end of the year marin county could issue four licenses for marijuana dispensaries. the board of supervisors approved a process for selecting licensees. the county has not yet issued any medical marijuana licenses. just two candidates are in the race for the republican presidential nomination with the announcement that texas senator ted cruz is out. >> we gave it everything we've got. >> no. >> but the voters chose another path. >> and so with a heavy heart, but with boundless optimism for the long-term future of our nation, we are suspending our campaign. >> no! >> the vice chair of the california republican party
says it's time for republicans to fall in line behind presumptive nominee donald trump. harmeet dhillon says cruz's disappointment in indiana combined with recent losses in the northeast made victory impossible. it's a stark contrast to the optimism from the cruz-fiorina ticket at last week's state republican convention in burlingame. >> the numbers are what they are but the spirit of the campaign was very strong. i mean, we had both him and his running mate in burlingame three days ago and they were all in to win. >> donald trump is closing in on the magic number of delegates needed to secure the nomination. ohio governor john kasich says he will remain in the race until the convention. meanwhile, bernie sanders is holding out hope that he still has a path to the democratic nomination after a victory yesterday in indiana. hillary clinton's campaign was quick to point out that she now has 92% of the delegates needed to clinch the nomination. the next democratic primary is
in west virginia next tuesday. an accident on the dumbarton bridge. you might use the san mateo bridge in the meantime until they clear this over to the side. couple of cars tangled up there. we are seeing some yellow on our sensors so some slow-and-go speeds as a result. the rest of the span not seeing any delays as you head towards the peninsula over towards 101. the rest of the bay area business as usual at the bay bridge. although we are getting first reports of a possible accident involving two vehicles blocking one of the hov lanes at the bay bridge. metering lights are turned on at 5:30 this morning so you have a backup all the way into the maze with approaches starting to see delays, as well. we'll get more details on the wreck as soon as chp lets us know. northbound 101 out of san jose, starting to see delays here also busy at least from 280/680. that's typically where it really starts to fill in. you're going to see break lights northbound about 14 minutes toward 237. if you want to use 280 in the
meantime that looks good with no delays. highway 85 holding steady looks like about a 12-minute drive time from 17 over towards 101. but we might have some rain later on. we have some rain on our live hi-def doppler radar at this particular time. what we have to do is decipher this information and decide whether or not it's virga where it's rain that's evaporating before it hits the ground or modified sprinkled. if you are in san rafael, bolinas, if you want to go to our facebook page at kpix 5 or kcbs radio and tell us if you are having light rain over the bay bridge, perhaps. let's call on our live weather camera, looking on the bay bridge we have mostly cloudy skies, several layers of clouds associated with the area of low pressure and the front draped across the state of california at this particular time. it's going to stay with us for the next couple of days. temperatures are very mild at this time in the 50s. the winds under 10 for the most part except in fairfield where
the winds are out of the southwest at 15. temperatures today coming down in comparison to yesterday. 50s beaches and then mid-70s away from the bay. carry that umbrella to be safe today. minimal rain if anything at best. we'll talk about the mother's day forecast and that's still coming up at 18 minutes after the hour. kenny. >> thank you. today the uc-berkeley police department expected to announce a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in a homicide case. so far there are no suspects named in the death of alberto santana silva. he was shot at the grizzly peak lookout in 2013. today police plan to release a suspect sketch hoping it will generate some new tips. it was three years ago this month that santana silva was shot after interrupting a fight involving the suspects. a massive takata airbag recall which has already taken back millions of unsafe airbags is getting bigger. kpix 5 reporter kiet do is outside a local honda driven
with the magnitude of the recall. kiet reporter: honda was most affected by this recall and, in fact, they were key in making it happen later on today. but sources close to the investigation say that an additional 35 million air bag set to be recalled later on today. this according to the "new york times." that will put the total number of as airbags to 1 in every four vehicles, 63 million. at issue moisture could seep into the propellant of the airbag known as ammonium nitrate. once it does the airbags can explode unexpectedly and send metal flying into the passenger area. now, for years, the airbag manufacturer takata had tried to blame the explosions on faulty design or quality control problems by the carmakers. they also manipulated data and hid negative test results. so a group of a dozen carmakers led by honda conducted their own testing which led to the expanded recall today. 11 people so far have been killed worldwide including a young driver in indiana who was going just 15 miles an hour when she crashed. the airbag went off sending a shard of metal through her neck
that killed her instantly. >> by all accounts, this should have been a crash that she walked away from. >> david, we see crashes like this each and every day. she should have walked away from this. with very few injuries if any injuries at all. >> reporter: there has been a persistent parts shortage that is delaying the repairs of the recalled airbags and so many customers are forced to drive around knowing they have a potentially deadly airbag in their cars. live in santa clara, kiet do, kpix 5. >> so what's takata doing to fix them? >> reporter: so they are adding a drying agent known as a dessicant to the airbag. but they have to prove to the feds that it works. they have until 2019 to do it. >> thank you. muni is testing a strategy to help speed up train service. yesterday, the transit agency began double stopping which allows two trains to stop and let passengers off in the same station at the same time. muni plans to test double stopping during peak commute
hours at the civic center, powell and montgomery stations. the city of san jose is now giving away money up to $1,000 if you help them catch vandals and illegal dumpers. the city council passed a new reward program last night that pays witnesses up to a $1,000 if their tips lead to an arrest. they are hoping it helps bring down the rise in graffiti and illegal dumping problems in san jose. one business manager tells us he finds trash near his building every day from refrigerators to entertainment centers and if he doesn't call city crews to pick it up it sits there and grows. >> want to send a clear message that this activity has to stop. >> you catch these suspects but what happens to them after? i mean, is that also a problem that -- are they just getting a slap on the wrist. well, there's actually a fine of a -- on the wrist? >> there's actually a fine of a $1,000 for illegal dumpers. >> the program will go into effect in july.
it cost taxpayers a million dollars a year to fund graffiti clean-up. the santa rosa city council is moving ahead with -- with a rent control plan. it would cap rent increases at older apartments at 3% a year and protect them from unfair events. a teen wanted to be on prom court with her girlfriend and the aclu helped make it happen. haley felt it wasn't fair that foothill high school only cast votes for a prom king and queen. the aclu agreed and sent a letter to the school urging it to take on a policy that lets same-sex couples have a shot at prom court glory. the school then changed the rules to be about votes, not gender. >> it was entirely worth it. we were planning to not only change it for us to be able to change it for future lgbt kid. >> now students at foothill high will be voting for prom

[ applause ] >> come on, team. got to bring home the stanley cup. we are taking a look at cloudy skies at this particular time. we have chances of rain in the south bay today. we'll talk more about that coming up in about four minutes. it's being called the largest evacuation in the history of alberta, canada. an uncontrollable wildfire is causing an entire city of 80,000 people to flee! the plumes of dark thick smoke can be seen for miles. it started sunday and seemed to be under control. but changing winds caused the flames to spread at alarming rates and residents had only minutes to evacuate. >> i don't know if i'll have a home to come back to. >> we don't know what we have. [ crying ] >> local authorities say the worst may not be over. high unpredictable winds are expected throughout the day. cinco de mayo is tomorrow and the oakland police department is apologizing for an insensitive tweet about the holiday intended to warn people against drunk driving. the message reads, the cinco de
mayo celebration has become synonymous with festive fiestas and salty margaritas. which is a potential recipe for disaster. >> i think it's wrong and i think this is where the police lack sensitivity and that's why today there's a lack of trust. >> the department quickly apologized calling the message, quote, completely insensitive. today new airline service begins between san jose and london. british airways will fly boeing 787 dreamliners between mineta international and heathrow. this is actually the first time an airline offered regular service between the two cities. eat local, right? now bay area residents can do that at mcdonald's. the restaurant just rolled out a new menu item called gilroy garlic fries. mcdonald's is testing made to order fries using a mix of gilroy garlic, parsley and parmesan cheese. right now, you can get them at four bay area mcdonald's. three in san jose and one in santa clara.

[ laughter ] >> but anyway. [ simultaneous speakers named after the captain of the team. >> and he scored the go-ahead goal in the game two. >> yeah. so not so much last night. let's check the roads and see how they are doing. >> busy out there. cars tangled up in the hov
lanes. adding to a busy ride out of the maze into san francisco this morning. we'll give you a look at the toll plaza. stop-and-go conditions 26 minutes now so that drive time is definitely inching up off the eastshore freeway. carquinez bridge to the maze westbound 580 also backed up and maybe some slight delays along 24. if you want to skip the road use mass transit, everything is on time. bart and ace, no troubles. no delays on ferries. westbound 580 still stop-and-go coming out of tracy this morning. pretty typical. you will see some slow conditions at least to north flynn. once you get over the hill working your way into livermore, things are getting a little bit better. no troubles connecting over to 680 itself. but doesn't mean 680 looks good. you'll have a few brake lights there. still clearing an accident on the right shoulder westbound dumbarton bridge near the toll plaza. not blocking lanes. but it is a little sluggish there. once you get past that, no delays heading towards the peninsula. that's a look at your morning drive. here's a look at the forecast

today through saturday. that's your day today. futurecast couple of sunny breaks, otherwise hit and miss scattered light showers very minimal no accumulation if you see anything at all. today, there you have the mostly cloudy skies today. pollen report, medium. if you sneezing and wheezing, i am blaming it on the grasses. here's your extended forecast. we don't see ample sunshine until sunday on mother's day. 62 to 73 degrees. that is your "hump day" forecast. make it a great day. don't go away. we have a great sports report coming up next. ,,

>> earlier today, after shootaround i walked through the weight room doing cardio, he ready tonight, big fella. we gonna need you tonight. he showed up. >> the president's mascot clearly sick of the black cat stuff. scoreless predators and sharks. paddy marleau with the 1-0 lead. predator defenders probably want it back. nashville ties it at one in the second. go ahead on shea weber as slapshot that goes into. the predators beat the sharks 4- 1 but san jose still has a 2-1 series lead. baseball real quickly. the a's lose next door here at the coliseum. the giants are winners, they go for the sweep today. the warriors series now shifts to portland. at oracle, i'm dennis o'donnell, kpix 5. back to the nba for our play of the day. miami at toronto. the raptors' kyle lowry former

(group surprised and laughter) how did that feel? was it fun being stuck? i do not like getting stuck! so, the nissan leaf s only gets 84 miles on a charge. the 2016 chevy volt gets an estimated 400 miles or more on a full charge and a full tank of gas. how's that for not getting stuck?
another dead whale has washed up along the coast. why marine biologists are waiting before it's removed. >> i'm kiet do. we're live in santa clara talking about airbags. the largest recall in automotive history is set to more than double in size. >> from the kpix 5 weather center, we have our live hi-def doppler radar, it's fired up. we're picking up some rain and show you lightning. >> word of a broken-down big rig in lanes on the altamont pass. details coming up. good morning, it's may 4. i'm kenny choi. >> i'm michelle griego. time now 6:30. the campaign to legalize recreational marijuana in california officially kicks off in san francisco today. kpix 5 reporter anne makovec is live at the commonwealth club where a powerful group of supporters will make the big announcement. anne. >> reporter: they have been collecting signatures for months and today they are finally launching the campaign for that ballot measure which is going to be called the adult
use of marijuana act. supporters are going to be here on post street at the commonwealth club to officially announce that they have gathered more than 600000 signatures to get this measure on the ballot in november. that's much more than they needed. this measure would allow anybody 21 and holder to possess and -- older to possess and transport up to an ounce of marijuana for recreational use and grow up to six plants. retail sales would then be taxed 15%. >> i mean, if you take a look at the general cost of federal cannabis prohibition over the years, you're talking about billions and billions and billions and billions of dollars. >> reporter: that is one of the supporters of this measure. he is actually with the medical marijuana industry, which is likely going to merge with the recreational industry if this measure passes. and if california vote's prove it we would join colorado, washington, alaska and oregon
in legalizing recreational pot and today's announcement has a broad coalition of support. they are trying to represent all of those different factors of society. lieutenant governor newson is the main speaker today. he is also going to be bringing up doctors, law enforcement agents, even people like representatives from the naacp. live at san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. chopper 5 caught a tense standoff in san francisco yesterday as five hunger strikers plus hundreds of protestors descended on city hall. their mission, to remove police chief greg suhr from his position. demonstrators known as the "frisco five" say that they won't eat a bite as long as chief suhr keeps his job. the protestors have tried in recent days to get mayor lee's perspective on police shootings. lee went to their turf on monday at the mission police station but they stood him up. and lee was all the way over in the bayview when they marched to his office yesterday. >> we are going to continue
this hunger strike. we'll be here until our stomach starts eating itself. >> the march yesterday was supposed to end with a community meeting that chief suhr was set to attend but secure concerns prevented it. a former officer involved in a racist text scandal pleaded not guilty yesterday on separate charges. jason lai is accused of misusing criminal and state dmv databases. police say he was arrested in march after an investigation into claims of sexual assault made against him last august. retired lieutenant curtis liu also appeared in court yesterday afternoon. he entered a not guilty plea to felony and misdemeanor charges. prosecutors say liu tried to cover up lai's section assault investigation. time now is 6:33. we have some possible rain on the way. roberta? >> this is when i really need to depend on our audience out there. if you can jump on facebook to kpix 5 or kcbs radio and let me know if you have rain in your area, a lot of it right now is virga where it is rain, it's
falling from the clouds but it's evaporating in the air mass before it hits the ground. let me show you this. around highway 116 to 37, we have to have some rain showers in the sonoma to napa area. i want to zero in on this. when you start to see the yellow that is a heavy downpour that's occurring so if you are in windsor to santa rosa we would love to hear from you to confirm our sighting here on our live hi-def doppler radar. also, i have been noting a couple of lightning bolts. can you see that there? it's off highway i-5 in the red bluff area. i have been noticing about half a dozen lightning bolts within the last 10 minutes. we have the low cloud cover at the golden gate bridge. our current air temperatures are in th mid -- mid-50s. winds 5 to 10 miles an hour. highs in the 50s, 60s, 70s. we'll have more on the local forecast and how long the unsettled weather will stick
and the coming up. we have delays along 580. looks like a broken-down big rig stuck in the right lane is adding to an already busy ride along 580 westbound through the altamont pass. it's located around north flynn and again the right lane is blocked there. they are waiting for a tow truck to come to the see to clear it out. it may take some time. so right now of delays out of tracy this morning. your backup is to 205 to mountain house. busy through there. the good news is once you get that, traffic is light towards 680. a lot of folks getting held up there where that big rig is stuck in lanes. if you are connecting to 680 that's only 16 minutes from the top of the altamont pass. the bay bridge that accident still clearing out of one of the lanes there trying to get over to the right shoulder. metering lights again are on, the backups into the maze. kenny. >> gianna, thank you. if you thought were you spared from that takata airbag recall think again. another massive round of recalls is affecting cars everywhere. kpix 5 reporter kiet do is live outside a local dealership so kiet, how bad is this one? >> chances are you or someone
you know will be affected by this. we are expecting the national highway traffic safety administration to announce the additional recall of 35 million air bags that will more than double the current number pushing the total to 63 million. according to the "new york times," honda and other consider makers were blamed for the problems and so they banded together and conducted their own investigations which led to the expanded recall. for years the airbag maker takata has been falsifying and manipulating its data and test results to blame the problem on the carmakers' design and quality control. it turns out it was the propellant inside the airbag all along that was the problem. when moisture seeps inside, it can cause the ammonium nitrate propellant to explode shooting mel at that time fragments at -- metal fragments at high speed into the cabin. huma hanif got into a slow speed crash at 15 miles per hour. a piece of shrapnel killed the
15-year-old. honda sent two notices but the family say they never got them. >> i wish we had received a notice from honda so we could have avoided the tragedy. >> reporter: now, if and when you get a notice getting the airbag is not so easy since there is parts shortage. customers have been driving around loaners or other cars. they have been installing a dessicant. feds want proof that the dessicant fixes it. takata has until 2019 deadline to do so. live in santa clara, kiet do, kpix 5. >> what happens if they don't meet that deadline? >> reporter: then you can expect that repair or the recall number of airbags to jump from about 63 million to roughly 100 million and then that would affect roughly half the vehicles on the road today. >> thank you. one suspect has been arrested after a wild chase in marin county.
police went after three people suspected of casing cars at the village of corte madera. the suspects got out while it was still running so an officer pulled in front of it to stop it from slamming into two people who were fishing. the suspects then ran off into the bushes. central marin and san rafael police were among the agencies involved. the man arrested was charged with resisting arrest and possessing stolen property. the other two suspects remain at large. in santa cruz right now marine biologists are trying to figure out what to do with a dead whale off the coast. the humpback can be spotted off westcliffe drive. scientists say that gray whales are migrating and that that attracts killer whales. this dead whale could also attract sharks. >> most of the time we either try to bury the animal or cart it off or if we can get it offshore, we'll do that. >> this is the second whale that has died off the coast of santa cruz this year. an independent arbitrator will have to decide how to settle a rent fight between the 49ers and the city of santa
clara. the team agreed to pay $24 million a year for the first two years. after that, rent was supposed to depend on the amount of revenue generated at levi's stadium. the 9ers say things are going well so they should only have to pay $20 million a year. city officials say rent needs to stay at $24 million to milwaukee sure operating costs are -- it make sure operating costs are -- to make sure operating costs are covered. the republican field is down to two. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen will explain what this means for donald trump and whether bernie sanders has new life in the democratic race. >> and the market just opened up about 10 minutes ago. we're not starting off too well. a quick look at the big board right now, you can see the dow is down about 111 points. coming up, we get an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. ,,
good morning. 6:42 on this wednesday. looking east towards the port of oakland, mostly cloudy skies. we are getting reports of rain around the bay area. we'll show you where and how long it will last coming up. time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." gayle king joins us from new york. good morning. >> reporter: we are here live and in color ready to go at 7:00. good morning to you, kenny and michelle. with ted cruz out and donald trump as the likely nominee, we have a lot to talk about today. so rnc chair reince priebus will be here. peggy woodward will join us at the table. plus we are in north korea with a rare look at what it takes to look at the hermit kingdom. and inside the fast paced cooking lessons capturing more than 14 billion views online.
that's a lot of people looking at food. but look at those french fries, eggs and cheese. i'm there. >> looks good. >> i like my eggs like that. the news is back in the morning. we'll see you at 7:00. >> saw online the other day a recipe that same video for a pizza bread bowl. so i'm going to try and make that some night. >> you know what? i have never heard of this tasty video thing on buzzfeed until today but i'm thinking this is a good thing for people that know how to cook. i do not. but they have some good stuff on there. >> we'll be tuning in, gale. >> see you at 7:00. >> bye. new numbers suggest a setback for job growth. joining us now is kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. certainly not seeing the kind of job creation that we have over the past couple of years. adp which tracks hiring in the private sector says it was a gain of only 156,000 jobs in april. that was well off the pace from the prior several months. the weakest reading in the past
year from adp, which also revised the prior three months each slightly lower. we have been seeing strong gains of around 200,000 and that's what we're expecting to hear from the labor department when it reports on april jobs in just a couple of days. that will be key for the stock market which is not reacting great to this number. there will be some job cuts at a social games developer here in san francisco. blue mobile which makes social game setter focused on personalities such as kardashians and kendall and all of them, its stock is down 17%. it's cutting 85 jobs. that's more than 10% of its workforce. it's beat expectations in the 1st quarter but its forecast coming in on the weak side. and wall street is not too happy about that. stocks are tumbling for the second straight day on some weak earnings and economic reports. let's go to the big board. dow down 120. nasdaq down 30. s&p down by 13. michelle and kenny, back to
you. >> jason, i never thought i would hear you say kardashians in your report. >> i don't know much about them. that's about all i know right there. >> thank you. >> part of the economy news because they generate so much money. >> more on the way. >> thank you. time now 6:46. let's get another check of traffic with gianna. >> it's a busy ride out there. we have this broken-down big rig stuck in lanes in the altamont pass westbound near north flynn. the right lane is blocked. they are waiting on a tow truck to clear it away. the damage is done. slow coming away from 205. if you are one of the "super commuters" out of tracy this morning you will see brake lights to mountain house off 205. so give yourself extra time. the only thing good about that, once you get past it no trouble connecting to 680 at the dublin interchange. clearing an accident at the bay bridge. everything should be clear but you have the metering lights on with the backup into the maze so slow-and-go conditions on the approaches as you work your way -- in fact, let's get a
live look at highway 24. looks like we might be start to see extra volume westbound 4 as you work your way out of orinda and getting word that traffic may be backing up as you approach the 580 interchange. that may take a few minutes to get through there this morning. checking the eastshore freeway, taking ahe look at traffic as -- taking a look at traffic as you come into richmond and berkeley, slow speed under 25 miles per hour in some spots. southbound 880 into hayward and across the san mateo bridge, same story. here's roberta. this is live information. this is our live hi-def doppler radar. and at this particular time we're picking up a combination of some virga and also some scattered light rain showers. let's get to it right now. zero in on the areas that we're picking up virga around novato to hercules. but around highway 116 looks like bona fide rain showers. would love to hear from you if you are in healdsburg and windsor and you just have that cell pass through your area, calistoga, all you have to do is go to our kpix 5 facebook page. let us know if it's raining in your area and upstream we go
just outside of colusa and right there, that's a lightning strike. it's cloud-to-cloud lightning near williams, california. but we have picked up a half dozen lightning strikes in the past 10 minutes. this is our live weather camera. i wanted to see if the flag is on the fly it the golden gate bridge. -- at the golden gate bridge. we have short delays at sfo. it's in the 50s. our weather watcher from orinda through napa, alameda and concord all say thin overcast and temperatures in the 50s. overcast skies today, light showers certainly possible throughout the day. in fact all the way through saturday. warming trend kick starts on mother's day. this is is a front right here. this -- this is a front right here. the center of the core of the center of the area of low pressure is cut off so it's going to be possible offshore for the next few days. peek-a-boo sunshine, mostly cloudy skies, a passing sprinkle or two certainly possible today. better chances on thursday.
lightning, thunder from ukiah to the high sierra, yosemite and we'll be cloudy in monterey. temperatures today 50s beaches, 60s bay and peninsula to the mid-70s inland. here's your extended forecast. a chance of showers or thunderstorms each day through saturday. but dry skies and warmer on mother's day. make it a great "hump day." to politics now. only two candidates remain in the race for the republican presidential nomination. kpix 5 political analyst melissa caen joins us now to discuss the gop race and whether bernie sanders still has a chance for the democratic nomination. okay, first, were you surprised that ted cruz dropped out so quickly after the indiana race? >> i have to say, yes. i mean, it was -- you're sort of getting the notifications on your cell phones, trump wins indiana, ted cruz is gone, right after the other. especially since cruz was projected to subsequent primaries we haven't had yet and he seemed like he was going to stay in the race to make trump really work to get that nomination. that's not to be. already in the sort of twitter-
verse, there are implications that maybe cruz did this in an effort to get out in time to run as an independent or a third party candidate. anyone who is going to do that needs to begin right away. the deadlines are starting next week to get on the ballots in other states. so if he is going to do it real know in the next couple das but that's at least one explanation for the quickness with which cruz dropped out. >> a lot of republicans say they won't support trump including jeb bush even if trump is the eventual nominee. so is there a "hail mary" option or will this very to eventually get behind trump? >> there are three choices. number one to get behind hillary clinton. and some folks have already taken to twitter to say they will. number two is to support an independent or third party candidate, maybe a ted cruz, maybe someone else. and the third way, which is sort of the nuclear option is for the delegates at the convention in cleveland in july before they can vote for donald
trump to get together and unbond themselves to basically adopt new rules that say we can vote for whomever we want and then pick another nominee. and again, this is undesirable result. this is not something that anyone wants to see happen but if folks are desperate there may be an attempt to unbond the delegates so they can pick someone else at the convention. those are the only ways to prevent trump from becoming president. >> so what is this all mean for california come june? >> it's, oh, we were so excited. we were going to be the gatekeepers. >> drama. >> now that cruz is out, it looks like california is irrelevant. trump will get the votes he need to be the nominee. if trump wins all the subsequent primaries, looks like he will, he won't need the delegates from california. sad. >> melissa caen, thank you. time now 6:51. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
remaining contests...follow last donald t five things to know at the :55. the 2016 presidential con tenners turn their focus to the remaining contests following last night's indiana primary. donald trump's big victory in the state along with ted cruz's exit from the race makes it certain that trump will be the republican presidential nominee. democrat bernie sanders is vowing to press on after pulling off an upset win over hillary clinton. president obama travels to flint, michigan today to examine the city's water contamination crisis. he will meet with the state governor rick snyder and federal officials to discuss efforts to resolve the issue. during the visit, governor snyder is expected to ask the president for more federal support. a huge wildfire in the province of alberta in western canada has forced the evacuation of an entire city. 80,000 people in fort mcmurray
have been ordered to leave the area. the fire started on sunday. crews thought they had it under control until the wind quickly changed direction. so far, no serious injuries have been reported. governor brown has until the end of the day to make some big decisions about tobacco. the assembly has sent him six bills restricting tobacco use in california. the most significant would raise the smoking age from 18 to 21. brown can sign, veto or s the bills back. a 3-year-old was killed in the berkeley hills. 21-year-old alberto santana silva was shot and killed on mother's day on grizzly peak boulevard in 2013. he was trying to stop a fight involving the man who shot him three years ago. his sister will be there at the news conference today. will you vote to legalize pot here in california. i'm anne makovec live in san francisco where supporters will officially launch the campaign
today for the adult use of marijuana act. they have officially gained enough signatures, actually they gained way more than they needed more than 600,000 to get this measure on the ballot this november. it would allow anyone 21 and older to possess and transport marijuana for recreational use and grow up to 6 plants. retail sales would be taxed 15%. if the voters approve it we would join colorado, washington, alaska and oregon in legalizing recreational pot. it still would not be legal to smoke pot in public nor drive while high. so legislators and law enforcement have some set of over challenges on their hands if this ends up legalized. voters will have their say on november 8. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. muni delays this morning. an accident clearing in san francisco at third and 16th but there are residual delays as a result. gaps in service on the l
taraval n-judah and ingleside and t-3rd lines. if you use n-judah use the n- express instead muni recommends until everything is back on time through there. so a heads up. the rest of mass transit is okay though no delays for bart, a's or caltrain. elsewhere if you are working your way southbound 880, we have stop-and-go conditions along the nimitz freeway coming away from 27, slow into freed, if you are connecting to the san mateo bridge we are seeing extra volume. it will take 25 minutes now to go between hayward and foster city. 101 starting to bog down just a bit as well along the peninsula. bay bridge business as usual. that accident cleared but you are slow out of the maze. you have all your approaches very sluggish. >> i love our kpix 5 viewers. i asked to you go to our facebook page. patricia and pauline on northwestern sections of santa rosa saying yeah we are getting rain right now! look at our live hi-def doppler radar. a lot of this is virga, some is
