The cannabis craze has caught fire across the country, with ten states already passing recreational marijuana laws. Now, with legalization on the horizon for the tri-state, Colorado may offer a good example of what life can be like with legal weed.

NBC New York went there for a five-part series, “Pot’s Real Price,” examining both the opportunities and the risks in legalization. See Sarah Wallace’s first report here
