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: Jen Golbeck
The 1990s were a time of tremendous political, cultural, and economic shifts in Washington, D.C. The opening of the Green Line and the MCI Center changed the landscape of the city and led to construction in places developers had long ignored. Marion Barry, the man known by some as “Mayor for Life,” lost his job and was incarcerated, but came back just a few years later to reclaim his seat.
A new WETA documentary, “Washington in the ’90s,” explores D.C.’s challenges during this decade, but also its ability to bounce back in different ways. We check in with people who made and appeared in the film and talk about the lasting impact of the last decade of the millennium.
