Air Date: 11/22/2013

Marijuana Crossroads, a 30-minute television program, visits Nebraska, where a county sheriff patrolling highways crossing the Colorado border unexpectedly finds himself facing the issue head on. 

The program, produced by Nebraska Public Media, just prior to legalization of recreational pot in Colorado, takes viewers to Denver, where the multi-million dollar legal marijuana trade is flourishing, and the Nebraska towns feeling the effects.  Interviews with pot farmers, prosecutors, smokers and lawmakers reveal the complexity of dealing with an issue that divides opinion at the state’s borderline.
