Later, David is joined by American economist and stand-up comedian Yorum Bauman. Bauman bills himself as the "world's first and only stand-up economist." His video Principles of Economics, translated has more than 1 million views on YouTube. Bauman is a strong supporter of a carbon tax, in particular, a revenue-neutral carbon tax. He started an organization called CarbonWA which gathered signatures for to put a revenue-neutral carbon tax on the ballot for the Washington elections, 2016. This initiative, known as Washington Initiative 732, would impose a steadily increasing tax on emissions of carbon dioxide, and use that revenue offset other taxes. Washington relies on a sales tax for much of its revenue, making its state tax code one of the most regressive tax codes in the nation. If it passes, Initiative 732 supporters assert that it will decrease the sales tax, eliminate the business and occupation tax on manufacturing, and expand the state's earned-income tax credit for low-income households.

Ten states will be voting on marijuana reform this Tuesday despite the Obama administration’s decision to keep marijuana as a schedule one drug alongside LSD and heroin. California voters will decide on Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, legalizing possession of one ounce of marijuana for adults over the age of 21. Californians will be allowed to grow up to six plants a year. And the sale of marijuana for recreational use would be taxed and regulated.
For more on this we are joined by Dr. Stanton Glantz who is often called the Ralph Nader of the anti-tobacco movement. Dr. Glantz opposes Prop 64. He’s written four books including The Cigarette Papers and is also a professor at the school of medicine at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Glantz believes tobacco and marijuana have similar chemical profiles, and that as we move towards legalization of marijuana we need to regulate it more like tobacco and less like alcohol.
