Marijuana the word, when spoken, often elicits smiles, smirks, guffaws and goofy comments. But to policymakers responsible for writing rules and regulations, this serious subject matter is full of weeds and thickets. We’re going to do our best to take our tools and jump into the marijuana patch and look at the challenges and opportunities that it provides to our American states.

Our guest today has been tracking the issue for several years now, and is one of the nation’s foremost experts on the political, legal and economic aspects of this issue. Karmen Hanson is a program director in the Health Program at the National Conference of State Legislatures.
