Kojo speaks with "Speak No Evil" novelist and D.C. native Uzodinma Iweala about his second novel and how his local upbringing affects his storytelling.
When the clock strikes 12:01 a.m. Thursday, possessing up to two ounces of marijuana will be legal in the District of Columbia. But the marijuana issue remains mired in a thicket of complex, yet hugely consequential legal questions: By defying skeptics in Congress, is the District overstepping its Home Rule charter? What will happen if, as seems likely, the District does not immediately establish rules to regulate and tax sales? How will local police react if a tourist lights up in the street? Kojo examines what comes next and takes your calls.
