Legalization Nation goes straight to the source this week by interviewing former cops, state officials, lawyers, and reviewing key data at the federal and state level. Thanks for reading. Here's a recap.

This week, Legalization Nation received tons of traffic from part three of our four-part series of mini-interviews with Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Speaker Russ Jones.

We also discovered California already collects about $100 million a year in sales taxes from cannabis.

Someone leaked Obama's National Drug Control Strategy. We analyzed it and it's mostly the same as the Bush years.

We confirmed that, 'No, you cannot come to work high if the new ballot initiative passes.'

And we found early campaign finance records showing reformers with more dough than drug warriors.
