John McCaslin And The "Weed Man"

In "Weed Man: The Remarkable Journey of Jimmy Divine," John McCaslin describes the life of a marijuana trafficker, and he talked about his protagonist – who happens to be a teetotaler – on Friday's edition of "Washington Unplugged."

"He is a Robin Hood type character which makes him interesting," McCaslin said.

Without offering his own opinion on marijuana legalization, McCaslin told host Bob Schieffer that he does not expect any action from the Obama administration to change the U.S.'s policy towards the drug.
