As detailed at this link, the renowned CBS news program 60 Minutes is planning to broadcast this evening a feature on the medical marijuana industry in Colorado. I am pretty sure this is just a re-broadcast of a piece that 60 Minutes ran last year before the state's recreational marijuana voter initiative passed, but I expect that the piece will be updated to reflect all the significant legal developments in Colorado and elsewhere throughout 2013. Here is how the this 60 Minutes webite sets up what we can expect to see:

In addition, one can already see via think link some of the additional materials produced in conjunction with this segment in a "60 Minutes Overtime" video with this set up:
