What would a plan to tax and regulate marijuana look like, and how would it affect those who have been fighting for -- and against -- fully legalized cannabis?
Guest Host: Michael Schaffer
The Washington metro region has been called “the world in a zip code” and nowhere is this description more apt than Arlington’s Columbia Pike. This historic corridor, which runs roughly between the Pentagon and Annandale, is home to more than 130 nationalities, many of whom moved into this region in the late 1970s. But like other urban neighborhoods in the region, development and housing pressures are changing “the Pike.” With an eye toward preserving the colorful complexity of this neighborhood for the history books, five area photographers spent more than a decade capturing life on the Pike. We explore this community with the chief photographer of the “Columbia Pike Documentary Project” and learn more about why the Pike typifies the changes in many American neighborhoods.
