California voters legalized the recreational use and sale of marijuana on a statewide basis. The law is set to go into effect on January 1. The roll out will depend on decisions made at the local level. The prospects for legal cannabis could look very different in Berkeley, San Francisco, and San Jose. What are the major differences? How do you want marijuana to be sold and marketed where you live? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Renee Kemp, and you.

On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the money behind the drug war.  The U.S. government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010. So how is that money spent?  Reason Magazine reporter, Mike Riggs, argues that industries like beer and alcohol, private prisons, drug testing, and addiction recovery owe their profits to the war on drugs.  And their lobbyists spend heavily to maintain the status quo.  So what do you want to know about the money spent on the war on drugs?  Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
