Author of pot bill not optimistic

A state lawmaker at least wants to have a conversation about legalizing marijuana in Wisconsin.

Democratic Rep. Melissa Sargent of Madison introduced a bill recently, and she concedes it's unlikely that it will go anywhere. She says some studies show that marijuana use is less harmful to people than alcohol and cigarettes.

Sargent says there's a racial disparity in marijuana prosecutions, with many more African-Americans landing in prison for pot.
