Measuring Colorado's "great experiment" with marijuana | Watch Video
In 2012, when Colorado voters passed Amendment 64, legalizing pot for recreational use was called "The Great Experiment." Five years later, recreational pot is now legal in eight states plus the District of Columbia, while 22 other states now allow sales of marijuana for medical use. But anti-marijuana advocates -- including U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions -- are pushing back against more permissive state laws. Barry Petersen looks at how that "Great Experiment" is working out.

The Golden Gate Bridge, a beautiful landmark in San Francisco Bay, has an ugly side. Nearly 1,700 have committed suicide from the bridge since its opening in 1938.

John Blackstone reports.
