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?
Later, on To the Point, an Islamic group — called "too extreme" by al-Qaeda — is taking over some major areas in Iraq, including Tikrit, a provincial capital, and the oil-exporting city of Mosul, where 48 people are hostages in the Turkish consulate. What's in store for the rest of the Middle East?
