California doctors back legalizing pot
The California Medical Association is supporting a November ballot initiative that would make pot legal for medical and recreational purposes.
One of California's most powerful organizations representing doctors has weighed in: it supports legalized marijuana.
The California Medical Association announced it is backing a ballot initiative appearing this November to legalize pot.
The measure would give the green light to marijuana for both medicinal and recreational purposes.
"This measure – along with the recently-passed medical marijuana bills – will ensure the State of California does both – with the public health and public interest being paramount concerns,” said CMA president Steven Larson in a statement.
Association spokesperson Molly Weedn joins Take Two to explain more about the organization's position.
