10 am

In just two months Colorado collected over $6 million in tax revenue from the legal sale of marijuana. That's one of the arguments pro-pot Ohio groups are using to support two legalization measures that might appear on November ballots. But others fear an increase in drugged-driving and strained law enforcement on state borders. We'll talk about the economics and politics of legalization this hour.

Guests:

  • Jeffrey Miron, Harvard University economist, and senior fellow at the Cato Institute
  • Lydia Bolander, spokesperson for Responsible Ohio
  • Jacob Wagner, vice president of Ohioans to End Prohibition
