On The 21st: Senator Dick Durbin tells us about the spending deal that Congress will vote on today - and what's he's hoping to see from the Senate's debate on immigration policy and DACA next week. Plus, Illinois Public Media and Side Effects Public Media reporter Christine Herman joins us to talk about whether marijuana is a viable way to treat chronic pain. We also continue our series of interviews with candidates for attorney general, and hear about a news non-profit in Chicago that has raised nearly $120,000 in three days.
