Marijuana: Amendment 64's Mason Tvert on Bill Maher's invite, advocate advice

During a recent appearance on his HBO discussion show, Bill Maher asked Mason Tvert, one of the primary proponents behind Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, to relocate in California and push through a similar measure there -- and Tvert lightheartedly said he would; see the video below. Days later, however, Tvert tells us he has no plans to move west or barnstorm the country to boost legalization efforts in other states.
