In the upcoming election, Nevada voters will decide whether to legalize recreational use of the plant.  There are a number of restrictions that come with approving recreational marijuana, but opponents say there aren't enough.

Under Question 2, Clark County will be allowed up to 80 establishments, if approved, during the first 18-months starting Jan. 1, but owners of medical marijuana facilities will be the only ones able to apply for a license for recreational sales before the county opens up the licensing process to anyone else.

Congressional candidates have been keeping an eye on the ballot initiatives.  Politics Now Anchor Patrick Walker spoke with the CD3 candidates about their feelings on Question 2.
