Should West Virginia Legalize Marijuana, Medical or Otherwise?

PB1_0471-1.jpg

This week, we talk to musician, cab driver and state Delegate Mike Pushkin, who sponsored a failed bill to legalize marijuana use.

We discuss the medical, economic, and social benefits and pitfalls of marijuana legalization.

Do the benefits outweigh the risks, or is it simply more trouble than it's worth?
