Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney was trying all weekend to walk back comments he made at a press conference where he seemed to say there was a quid pro quo in holding up military aid to Ukraine. Also, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that troops leaving Syria will not come home, instead they will go to Western Iraq. Ginger Gibson, political reporter for Reuters, joins us for all the big political news over the weekend. Next, we check in on the great American cannabis experiment. Now almost seven years old, it was in 2012 that Washington and Colorado chose to make cannabis legal for recreational use. But with every new state that legalizes, the contradictions between state and federal laws become more apparent. While marijuana continues to remain illegal under the Controlled Substances Act, the cannabis industry is growing and generated over $10 billion in sales last year. What all this means is that some Americans are making money producing and selling cannabis, while others are being arrested and charged for the same activity. Natalie Fertig, reporter at Politico, joins us for more.
