In a recent interview, California Governor Jerry Brown expressed skepticism about marijuana legalization. "How many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation?" Brown asked. Even so, public acceptance of marijuana and support for legalization are on the rise. Sacramento Bee reporter Peter Hecht has been reporting on this new era for pot policy. He joins us to talk about his latest book, "Weed Land."
