    As President Obama seeks $27.6 billion for federal drug control programs in his new budget, we talk to British journalist Johann Hari about the century-old failed drug war and how much of what we know about addiction is wrong.

    Over the past four years Hari has traveled to the United States, Mexico, Canada, Uruguay and Portugal to research his new book, "Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War of Drugs." His findings may surprise you ? from the U.S. government's persecution of Billie Holiday, to Vancouver's success in addressing its heroin epidemic, to Portugal's experiment with full decriminalization of all drugs. This video is an excerpt from the interview with Johann Hari.

    Marijuana is being openly sold in specialty stores in Vancouver under the guise of a government-approved system meant to limit sales for medical use only, a documentary by the CBC's fifth estate shows. 

    Medical marijuana has been legally sold in Canada since 2001 under strict government guidelines and only under authorization from a physician.

    But the fifth estate’s Mark Kelley found that in Vancouver these days the drug is readily available in medical marijuana dispensaries, where a quick consultation with a nurse or a naturopath gets people a membership and access to as much marijuana as they want.

  • New bank could save the pot industry

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney)

    Kristi Kelly owns legal marijuana stores in Colorado called Good Meds and has lost 23 bank accounts in five years. Even though medical marijuana is legal in Colorado and 22 other states, it's still illegal on the federal level. And that means banks generally don't want anything to do with pot shops.

    That creates a slew of headaches for these entrepreneurs, who are often forced to operate all-cash businesses. That is time consuming and costly -- and can be dangerous.

    But a new credit union formed specifically to serve the marijuana business could be a turning point for the fledgling pot industry.

    Fourth Corner Credit Union is supported by a group of attorneys, business owners and legalization advocates who see an opportunity where traditional bankers see only potential legal problems. Pending final approval from the Federal Reserve, it could open in January.

    "It will be much safer than the cash-based operation that exists today," said founding member Mark Mason. "The feds should be thrilled."

    Here's what it will mean for business owners.

    They'll be able to have bank accounts: Sometimes a pot business owner is lucky enough to get an account if a bank either turns a blind eye, or doesn't immediately understand the true nature of the business. But it generally doesn't last for long. That's why Kelly eventually turned Good Meds into an all-cash business.

    They'll save time: Kelly has an entire team dedicated to keeping track of the cash, double and triple checking handwritten ledgers.

    They have dubbed the entire process "Bank Kristi."

    It'll be easier to pay employees: A pot business can't issue paychecks without a bank account. At Good Meds, employees have to go to a different location to pick up their wad of cash every payday, count it, and sign off.

    Their businesses will be safer: Businesses with lots of cash on hand are big targets for criminals. For now, Kelly moves the money out of Good Meds' main location to a more discreet location for the safety of her customers and employees.

    They'll be able to accept credit cards: This would cut down on the amount of cash a business has to handle. It could also bring transparency to the industry, making it easier for governments to regulate the businesses -- making sure they are not involved with drug cartels, said Michael Elliott, the director of the Marijuana Industry Group.

    "If it does open, it would be exciting. But ultimately Congress needs to fix this issue," Elliott said.

    According to U.S. researchers, marijuana has no negative effects on human health. They that determined that the weed users they studied were no more likely to go see the doctor than non-drug consumers.

    Researchers from the Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine randomly sampled patients who tested positive for marijuana to see if the marijuana-use had any impact on their health. They found that there's no difference between people who smoke cannabis daily and those who do not.
