Interview: Pot Holiday Trying To Go Mainstream

Once the province of activists and stoners, the traditional pot holiday of April 20 (aka 4/20) has gone mainstream in the first state in the nation to legalize recreational marijuana. Tens of thousands gathered for a weekend of Colorado cannabis-themed festivals and entertainment, from a marijuana industry expo to 4/20 themed concerts and a planned smokeout in Civic Center Park. Although it is still illegal to publicly smoke marijuana in Colorado, police only reported 63 citations or arrests on Sunday, 47 for marijuana consumption.

AM 820 News anchor Roger P. Schulman spoke to ABC News correspondent Jim Ryan.
