Big money flows into California ballot initiatives

Hosted by

Ballot initiatives are determined by California voters, but there is a huge amount of money being spent behind the scenes. Big Pharma, Big Tobacco and the plastic bag industry have spent millions of dollars this year on campaign ads seeking to influence votes. KCRW's Warren Olney follows the biggest spenders and what they support.
