FROM THIS EPISODE

Stories of people doing the noble thing and stepping up to help, only to find out that others think what they're doing isn't helping at all. Planet Money looks at a charity that's decided to just give people money; advice columnist Dan Savage explores what happens when people actually take the advice he gives; and a sheriff in California devises a plan to let farmers grow weed — as long as they register with him.
