Consumer Reports for Legal Pot and the 'Green Rush' Economy

Hosted by

Medical marijuana is sweeping the country; Colorado and Washington are just the first states to legalize recreational use. We talk with a California entrepreneur who plans to cash in on what's called "the Green Rush." Can money be made on "responsible use" or will profits depend on abuse of a drug that's now more potent than ever? Also, LA's global village prepares for the World Cup. Will a California Republican be the next Majority Leader in Congress?

What's in store for the rest of the Middle East?
