Legal Marijuana ‘Narconomics’ In Colorado, Young Farmers Make A Go Of It, Aurora’s Greg Bird On His Yankees Ups And Downs

Listen Now

The black market for marijuana has shrunk considerably in Colorado since the drug became legal here. But less so in Washington State, where recreational sales are also legal. So what's the difference? We'll talk with an editor at The Economist who's dug into "narconomics." Then, the challenges of being a young farmer in the West. We'll hear from one who's making a go of it. And, it's been a real rollercoaster ride for Yankees first baseman Greg Bird, who went to high school in Aurora. He talks about the highs of being called a "phenomenon" while he substituted in the majors, and the lows of an injury and being sent back to the minors.
