WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses a Justice Department motion to invalidate the Affordable Care Act, and the department's plans to release the Mueller report in "weeks, not months." He also comments on President Trump's declaration of a national emergency, which still stands after a House vote failed to overturn the president's veto. 

Vt. Gov Says Marijuana Will Be Legal Some Day

Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin says he thinks marijuana should be legalized in the state, but not right now.

He says he believes that legalizing and taxing marijuana is the direction the country is headed and "Vermont should be a part of that conversation."

But he says he's not willing to do that now.

Shumlin made the comments Wednesday after being asked about the topic during his weekly news conference.

Last month the U.S Justice Department said it would not sue to block laws in Colorado and Washington state that allow for recreational use of marijuana.
