Bill Would Legalize Marijuana

Tom Trowbridge reports that the governor of New Mexico is championing a bill that would make it legal to possess small amounts of marijuana in the state. The measure is now before the state's legislature. Lawmakers from both parties are lobbying for the bill, which if it passes, will be the first time the possession of marijuana has been legalized in 20 years.
