Today on Your Call: What’s next for legalization of marijuana?

Dec 13, 2012

  On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the changing landscape of pot legalization in the United States.  In last month’s elections, marijuana was legalized in two states: Colorado and Washington.  But federal law still prohibits its sale and use.  So how will these new state laws hold up?  What will a legal commercial market for pot look like?  And how will California’s medical marijuana laws be effected going forward? Join us at 10am Pacific Time or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and You.
