Measure M: LA's Effort to Cash In on Medical Marijuana

Hosted by

Measure M on next week's Los Angeles City ballot would impose a hefty business tax on medical marijuana. The ballot argument claims it would raise $10 million for everything from public safety to libraries to paving roads, alleys and sidewalks. But the language of the measure itself reminds voters that "the sale of marijuana is illegal." We hear why the City Council went ahead anyway and get the pros and cons.
