Cannabis cafes could be legalized in California by January

California lawmakers have approved a bill that would allow for cannabis cafes in the state described as "Amsterdam-style."

If Gov. Gavin Newsom signs the measure, the cafes would be allowed to sell food and drinks, and have live music on site. However, customers would not be allowed to consume their cannabis in public view, and the cafes would not be allowed to sell alcohol and tobacco. This law could go into effect in January.

The Show spoke with Eddie Celaya, cannabis writer for the Arizona Daily Star and host of the Here Weed Go podcast, more about it.
