The economics of cannabis, and the of the politics of the war against it.
Author Doug Fine discusses his new book, Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, with Ani and Lyn.
What would happen if cannabis was legalized? Doug's book looks at what legalized pot might mean to our economy. Not only could we save the money spent on incarcerating users of the herb, but by taxing it much like alcohol, Doug argues that cannabis could introduce a half-trillion dollars into the US economy within a decade.
