WA Attorney General talks about marijuana legalization

Last month, the Brookings Institution hosted a public forum about the changing attitudes about marijuana policy.  Among the panelists was Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson.  In the clip of him speaking, he states that Washington is a laboratory of democracy when it comes to marijuana legalization and briefly discusses his communications with the United States Attorney General.

Mark Kleiman, whose organization (BOTEC) provides advice to the Liquor Control Board about marijuana policy, was also part of the panel.  He stated that we will learn a lot from Washington about the effects of marijuana legalization  over the next few years.
