6:05 pm
was actually having seizures, four in under a minute, hundreds in the course of a day. his father remembers with tears in his eyes. >> the longest couple minutes of my life was walking from the doctor's office all across the hospital to their intensive care unit for babies in my arms, he's just seizing. >> he had essentially no normal brain activity. it was just background seizures all the time. >> reporter: zach was diagnosed with a dangerous form of epilepsy. >> for a year we tried basically every medication we too. could, last i totaled it like 12, 14. >> reporter: the drugs did not stop the seizures. they also had devastating side effects. >> he was just empty. his eyes were glossed over. he wouldn't look at you. >> reporter: doctors told them zach would get worse, that zach would be better off institutionized. >> it was very hard to swallow. >> dan and i were horrified. >> reporter: then late at night unable to sleep.

utilized week after week since its enactment to seize, to cause criminal enforcement against lawful operators who require no dea registration. >> reporter: the hemp industry filed a lawsuit against the dea challenging a new drug code. that new code says that all cannabis extracts including cbd are controlled substances and illicit. >> it's unfair to the public. >> reporter: above rovan represents the hemp industry concerned the dea is outlawing all cbd, but unlike hemp it's not a controlled substance. >> this gives all of the agencies and law enforcement across the country the right to stay look, this rule made those extracts controlled substances. >> reporter: the crackdown has already begun. a week ago authorities raided and padlocked 23 stores near nashville, tennessee, because they sold products containing cbd, an ingredient the sheriff

6:15 pm
london breed who is also running for mayor to answer questions about this. r-pac that supports london >> he means this guy cut a back room deal with these guys that helped this guy's campaign for mayor. >> this political ad was created by a superpac that supports london breed. it accuses two supervisors of conspiring to remove her as acting mayor to help her rival, mark leno, win the special election in june. leno has called the ad shameful and a smear campaign. did london breed approve of the ad and does she know who paid for it? back on february 5th our phil matier asked her those questions. "did you get a chance to >> she obviously walked away from phil. the next day kpix5 reporter jackie ward also asked her about it. n: "( >> reporter: did you get a chance to watch that ad? >> yeah. unfortunately i'm not going to be able to answer any questions about anything other than this press conference. vity of anything as it relates think the vo >> well, today phil matier asked her about the ad yet
6:16 pm
again. >> phil, i'm not going to talk about that commercial and the negativity of anything as it relates to this race. what i think the voters care about most is what am i going to do to address the housing crisis? what am i going to do to deal with homelessness? what am i going to do to deal with public safety? we have to focus on the issues and less on the political stuff that people are sick and tired of. >> so we have asked london breed about the ad three times now. it looks like she'll never answer. london breed did want to talk about tasers for police. in fact, she told phil that she supports giving tasers to san francisco police officers. >> oh, my god, drop it! >> reporter: since the 2015 police shooting of mario woods few issues have jolted san francisco politics as much as the question of police use of tasers. >> studies have shown when departments get tasers, that officers use tasers more freely. >> reporter: and now tasers are taking the stage in the san
6:17 pm
francisco mayoral race with board of supervisors president and mayoral candidate london breed saying she's now in favor of the shock guns. her reason? >> i hate guns. guns have destroyed the lives of so many in my community. >> reporter: supporting tasers, however, immediately put breed at odds with her progressive rivals in the june race like former state senator mark leno. tasers, yes or no and why? >> no until we implement all of the reforms that the department of justice put before the san francisco police department. >> reporter: candidate and supervisor jane kim also said no to tasers for now saying that instead, " we need to deescalate situations safely. this keeps everyone safer." on the other hand, there's former supervisor angela alioto who has long supported giving cops tasers. >> there's a total lack of common sense in this city when it comes to certain things. >> reporter: at the same time alioto noted breed did not publicly come out for tasers
6:18 pm
until she was running for mayor. >> oh, she came out for it? she's been against it for years. wonders never cease. >> reporter: you haven't always been an advocate for tasers. >> i have been an advocate for police reform. >> reporter: recent polls show seven of 10 voters back police using tasers in san francisco, especially on the city's more moderate west side. >> the loudest sound at city hall seems to be the progressive activists, but at the end of the day it's those absentee voters, those homeowners, those ethnic communities that vote. >> i think it's a distraction, also, because the thing i'm hearing from everybody right now is about car break-ins. >> reporter: whether or not tasers are on the top of voters' minds, however, is not the issue. tasers and other issues like this are sort of signals about where people stand on public safety and in relation to the police and that's also something her voters are looking at as they contemplate their choices. in san francisco, phil matier, kpix5. returning to the topic of weather, you can see what's

6:48 pm
view the bay bridge. highs today managed only low to mid-50s in the bay area and as diana washington almost saying what a difference two days make. on saturday we have low 70s and upper 60s. today only in the low to mid- 50s means in two days we picked up almost a 20-degree temperature swing. it will be cool again tomorrow, not only cool, cold enough for the upper elevations to produce a little snow out in the diablo range around mount hamilton and lick observatory in the mountains of the south bay. it wouldn't be a surprise to see a little bit more overnight, but that high pressure to our west is driving that arctic air into the bay area. it remains cold. there is just no or very little moisture with this. so the result, it will be clear and cold tonight, numbers down to the mid-20s, freeze warnings posted at midnight tonight through 9 a.m. tomorrow. the lows will be in the mid-20s to low 30s, easily the coolest
6:49 pm
night of the season. plant damage and all the usual is possible. the coldest night will be tonight. we'll get you slight warming tomorrow, less windy and the gusts are still up to 23 miles an hour in parts of the bay area. by the weekend it warms to 60 degrees. the overnight lows tonight are the big story really and you'll see on average the numbers are between 5 to 10 degrees, even more below average for this time of year. san francisco down to 38, campbell 33 degrees tonight, san jose a degree below freezing and 31 degrees at fremont. over in the east bay the numbers will be in the upper 20s and low 30s, 34 degrees at pittsburg, 30 at fairfield at travis air force base and vallejo 29 degrees. lows tonight for santa rosa will be down to 27. 27 at petaluma. as cold as it is, they are not record lows. we're about 10 degrees shy of records for this time of year. overnight tonight in ukiah23
6:50 pm
degrees. here's how it looks for daytime highs tomorrow. we're all going to be within a couple of degrees of the low 50s, san francisco 52, san jose 56, livermore 54 and in santa rosa 55. extended outlook, very gentle warming between now and the weekend which sounds nice to me. we'll recover to near average highs saturday and sunday and temperatures are then going to recover. in terms of rain you can get out that telescope on top of mount hamilton and look as far as you can are but we don't see any. we'll have an update at 11:00 tonight. coming up on nightbeat at 10:00 should famous athletes comment on politics? tonight that's the big question. that has lebron james in the middle of the feud, who is telling him to shut up and dribble? it happens tonight on nightbeat. join us at 10:00 on our sister station, kbcw 44 cable 12 about.
