For those in-the-know, there's nothing like the frenzy over an In-N-Out burger. And, for Florida fans, the drive-in burger joint that's popular on the West Coast could very well be coming to Florida soon.
The chain, famous for its never-frozen ingredients used to make their cult-like classic burgers, has been battling with Northern California officials over vaccination requirements. With this in mind, Florida is positioning itself to become the land of opportunity for a lot of establishments who are tired of the rules elsewhere.
Jimmy Patronis, the Chief Financial Officer of the State of Florida, is now trying to encourage In-N-Out Burger to head this way, making its way across the continent to break new ground by opening up a few restaurants here in the Sunshine State.
Websites will be able to resume contracting with Florida medical marijuana operators to allow patients to order products online, under a ruling issued earlier this week by an administrative law judge.

Three Florida teens were arrested last week on murder, conspiracy and evidence tampering charges in connection with the brutal killing of a classmate, police said.

Dwight "DJ" Grant, an 18-year-old high school student who disappeared Oct. 17, was found dead Oct. 19 in Miramar.
South Floridians can now get their much-needed fix of Knaus Berry Farm’s gooey, warm cinnamon rolls.
The famous farm has reopened for the season, and to say the farm is popular is an understatement. During the season, people drive from miles around to get their fresh baked items at the Homestead spot at 15980 SW 248th Street. As a result, these now famous rolls have plenty of people waiting in line each year — some overnight, while others got up early and waited for hours in the sun.
Only in Florida — and Orlando area, to be exact.
This week, the El Nuevo Herald website was first to report on a very unique home for sale — a Star Wars-themed mansion.

It has 15 rooms and 19 bathrooms decorated with the themes of the Jedi, the Padawan, and Luke Skywalker.
