Washington state's search for 'pot czar' hits a snag due to high demand

Now to Washington State, where the business of pot is getting out of control.

When Outfront first brought you this story in January, state authorities were searching "high" and low for a "Pot Czar" to help them manage their new marijuana business.

Colorado - along with Washington state - voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana in November even though federal law says its illegal.

The search for pot czar, though, continues...and there's high interest in the position.

CNN's Paul Vercammen has the story.
