Organic Marijuana

First pot went legit, now it might be going organic. About two months ago, California's Mendocino County petitioned the state to allow regulation and certification of organic marijuana farms.

County officials cited the requests of medical marijuana users who fear the effects of pesticides on their already compromised immune systems. So far, 10 states have taken some steps toward decriminalizing cannabis for medical uses. With California considered a thought leader and precedent setter on the issue - the state has an estimated 125 "pot clubs" - could marijuana be the next crop to go organic?

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network as we find out about the controversy, talk to Canadian cannabis growers and learn about proposed regulation.
