NEW YORK (CBS) The Regulate, Control, and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010 - California's initiative to legalize marijuana, has added fuel to an already contentious debate in this country.

For this week's Health and Wellness we explore both sides of the issue in a debate between NORMAL New Jersey's Chris Goldstein and The Heritage Foundation's Brian Darling.
