Marijuana: Will "no" vote on pot taxes prompt federal crackdown?

Earlier this week, we reported about the war of words between supporters and opponents of Proposition AA, which would set tax rates for recreational pot sales.

Attorney Rob Corry, who thinks the tax levels are too high (a point made at not one but two free-joint rallies this month), has challenged proponents to a debate, and he's getting frustrated by the lack of a response. So he shares some of his views with us and reacts to arguments against rejecting Prop AA -- including the prospect of a "no" vote inviting federal intervention.
