Host Lisa Loving interviews Martin Lee, author of "Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana - Medical, Recreational and Scientific", a panoramic, character-driven narrative that explains why marijuana affects so many aspects of American life, "Smoke Signals" chronicles the development of a grassroots movement that began in the 1960s and grew into a widespread populist revolt against prohibition.

Is this really about protecting the fetus, or is it about controlling women, their bodies, and their sexuality? Or both? Abe and Joe examine this question and take listener phone calls.
