Gone to Pot: The big business of weed

In the days since Colorado legalized sales of recreational marijuana, the lines have been growing and the prices have been soaring. There are plenty of people who are ready to cash in, and that includes Colorado's state treasury. Randi Kaye takes a look at this new "Green Rush."

Anderson discussed this with former Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer.

    Hi Anderson,
    I enjoy your show and I commend the respect that you give to all of your guests. I love that you really try to see all sides of the issues and concerns.
    Tonight's show hit home because while I 95% agree with your excellent guests (discussing the legalization of pot and other drugs), my small community just suffered the suicide loss of an amazing 18 year old boy, straight A's, heading for college. Apparently, he was on Acid (not confirmed), and something went terribly wrong. Maybe the Acid (LSD) had something else in it that created a chemical reaction in his brain. I don't know, but a family and a small town is devastated. It seems that most all of the kids (regardless of socio-econimic-level) are dabbling in drugs....alcohol, pot, meth, cocaine, acid, heroine, etc. My kids are 9 and 10 years old, and I'm scared to death.
    Thanks for all you do. Keep up the honest reporting, and your ability to explore all sides of a coin.

    That you title your story "Gone to Pot" renders it an Establishment statement.
    The phrase gone to pot means something is ruined. Society is ruined by
    marijuana. That is the summation of your message and a very strong one,
    siding with the status quo. The idea that CNN offers some kind of alternative to
    Fox is absurd.
