DnA looks at how the cannabis industry is using product and interior design to draw new customers and change its image.

The southland's growing pains 17 MIN, 29 SEC

Angelenos are in the midst of an epic battle over what kind of city they want to live in, suburban or urban. They are also battling over which of these two cities can keep the region's housing affordable as the middle class is hollowed out. In Santa Monica, Measure LV, also known as LUVE, is being watched with great interest all around the region by those who think development has gotten out of control.

Guests:
Rick Cole, City of Santa Monica
