wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.
4:29 pm
eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you.

4:30 pm
serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection. make the most of every moment. ask your dermatologist about humira, today. clearer skin is possible.

it's not rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. images coming out of the philippines are gut-wrenching. also, plans can be made days, weeks, even years before the storm hits. those are lessons from hurricane katrina. a new book details the drastic but often horrifying choices made at one new orleans hospital during 2005 storm. dr. sherry fink, author of "five days at memorial" hopes her book is a wake-up call. she talked to don lemon about how it happened then and how it could happen again. >> they have back-up power below flood level. circuits fgot wet. it became very unbearable. everything on american hospitals
4:40 pm
rely on electricity. they have to decide who to save first when the helicopters started to arrive. they have about 2,000 people, about 250 patients. here in new york city we have hospitals who have their back-up power systems vulnerable it flooding and we have a storm surge and many hospitals in new york city are on rivers and the ocean. same with nursing homes. so same kind of problems. we haven't yet learned all this we need to learn and applied that from katrina. >> after that happening down in new orleans from katrina, what sticks with you most about this this is. >> i think obviously this hospital, kind of the most extreme thing that you can imagine, happened. which is that half the storm, doctors and nurses were accused of having hastened the deaths of their patience. >> when you say hastening the deaths, that means they were just allowing the people to -- they were on life support, they were allowing them not to -- >> more than that. it was allegedly, and what i found out, is actually, that
4:41 pm
medicines were actually injected that would hasten the deaths of the patients. >> these aren't mercy killings. >> that is sort of what was alleged. then there became a debate because, what is that line between comforting the patients, the same medicines you would use in a normal dose to give comfort. or you know, were they pushing them over the edge. in the end there were 20 patients who forensic pathologists determined had received these drugs in short order and died and some of the doctors were willing to tell me that, yes, we did this. we did do this intentionally. we felt the situation was so desperate because we had to wit a long time for rescue for the patients. >> is there any sort of justification for this, that things are so bad that it is better that patient's life be ended than having to suffer through? >> it is interesting. a lot of people thought their families would say that. thank you for doing this merciful thing. my loved one would not have survived anyways and you gave
4:42 pm
them a comfortable way out. but almost 2-1 they were upset. maybe my mom or my husband didn't have a whole lot of time left but that time was still valuable so that time should have been made to rescue him or her. >> in your book, it says that they all vowed not to talk about it afterwards, right? >> they did. some of them told me there was a code of silence about it. i think that was in part brought about by tfact that very soon - some of the doctors and nurses felt this was the right thing do. some won't make it. other doctors and nurses said, are you kidding me? we don't do this. and they stood against it. very early on, they went to the media, they went to the authorities. authorities started to investigate. eventually a doctor and two nurses were arrested. you can imagine why there was a code of silence. >> was it a matter of in this particular case, a matter of how sick someone was. their race.
4:43 pm
their weight. what were the criteria to, you know, for hastening life? >> so i think one of the most disturbing parts of this was that one gentleman who weighed, i think he was close to 400 pounds. and he was on the seventh floor. of course, no el i have tevator. he was conscious. he ate breakfast. he said, are we ready to rock and roll. and there was a discussion that he was just too heavy to carry down the steps. that is something that happens because we have obesity. >> what happened? >> he was one of the 20 with the forensic pathologists with the drugs in their bodies. at bellevue hospital after soup are storm sandy, again, the last person who was taken out was a very heavy-set patient. but they kept carrying fuel up to some back-up generators on the 13th floor until they could

get one el i have tevator runnit him out. maybe we learned something. . we need to think about the infrastructure in this country. tremendously vulnerable. in new york city, there is a proposal that will go through the local city council to demand that hospitals be brought up to kind of a higher building standard. so that by the year 2030, which is still a long way away, that we will have hospitales with back-up power protected against flooding. it seems kind of crazy that we don't have that already. and that's a vulnerability all over the country. >> our thanks to dr. sherry fink. her book is called "five days at memorial." it's been called the fastest growing culture in country. growing marijuana and businesses popping up around it. even wall street is interesting. that's next. customer erin swenson ordered shoes from us online but they didn't fit. customer's not happy, i'm not happy.

legal marijuana is among one of the fastest growing industries in the u.s. the legal marijuana market is an industry with sky high potential. this year, u.s. sales of legal marijuana may be worth an estimated $1.5 billion. next year, an estimated $3 billion. yes, that's a 100% increase. that's serious money. this weekend, our don lemo spoke
4:49 pm
with supporters and critics of the business of pot. >> let's break down the legal marijuana business with our guest. steve deangelo is the president of arc view investors network and long time marijuana activist. he joins us via skype. he is in prague. then jaman shybly. former manager at microsoft and co-founder of diego peliser, a company aiming to be the starbucks of pot. that is very interesting. i think you will be a very wealthy man one day. i will tell you why in just a minute. he joins us from seattle. then kevin sabet. he opposes legal pot. kevin and i have talked about this many times. we are getting to be old friends. he worked for the drug administration with the obama and bush administrations. he wrote the book "reefer sanity" and he is not hearing
4:50 pm
anything. first to you, you said it will mint more money than microsoft, kevin. how do you figure? >> it under a global regime of prohibition per the united nations 1961 single convention treaty to which virtually every country in the world is a signatory. notable exceptions such as uruguay exist. those point to a key of why prohibition is coming to an end a lot closer than most people think. >> steven, who is going to back you? in the eyes of feds, this is still illegal. where will the money come from? >> at the argue group, which we started three years ago, in our early years, we saw mostly cannabis industry insiders who were interested in other businesses in the industry. more and more, we're seeing investors. in some case, they are just high
4:51 pm
network individuals and in some cases, funds have been created specifically to invest in the cannabis industry. >> are you in this for the weed, or are you in it for the money? >> well, i've been doing this for 40 years. i fell in love with the cannabis plant and learned of its benefits and my life's mission is to bring the truth about this plant to the world. i've spent more money doing activism than i'll ever make on cannabis. >> okay. so people have tried to guess what kind of money this new legal pot industry will pull down. instead of back alleys, if pot could be sold in corner stores, will this impact people who may have never bought marijuana? >> well, yes. it's certainly impacting people who have never bought marijuana in their lives. oakland, which has had a cannabis tax for the past three years, arbor side health center is the second-largest retail taxpayer in the city. we pay for the salaries of well over a dozen cops and teachers
4:52 pm
every year. >> i wonder, kevin, if we're looking at this like marijuana and pot through the same eyes. and maybe we shouldn't. because by all accounts, i'm just being honest, just giving you the research here as a journalist, alcohol is much worse for you than marijuana. so maybe there shouldn't even be a comparison and that's why there's such a negative when it comes to marijuana. >> well, the question is worse compared to what? when it comes to iq for young people, marijuana is worse than alcohol. when it comes to violence, alcohol is worse. why is one is worse than the other? the point is alcohol's legality is here to stay for cultural reasons. why do we want to create the new big toe becobacco and the new a industry now in the name of marijuana? >> don lemon, who's now in las vegas. he's there for the premiere of "anthony bourdain's parts unknown." and he spoke with the world's

if you're still hungry for more after tonight's season finale of "parts unknown," don't fear. anthony bourdain and friends will host a one-hour postseason show called "last bite". it's live from las vegas. don lemon is with anthony bourdain in las vegas tonight. >> the season finale is tonight. the season finale is in detroit. but we're here in las vegas. you picked this because you think that this sort of represents america. >> look, there's high roller vegas and then there is for me the real vegas. this is the real vegas. this is the vegas i love, this side of town. >> rosie, come here. what does anthony have here? >> he has joseph james palo. >> what is this one? >> firestone, unfiltered wheat beer. >> so this one is not local?
4:57 pm
you're mr. local. >> i eat local, drink local. >> seriously, why do you love this place so much? why do you love las vegas? >> they used to dance on the roof here i think. when they would explode the a bomb during nuclear tests. i think it's one of the oldest establishments in vegas. locals drink here and eat here. you know, it's not that faceless corporate feel, anonymous feel of a casino. it should surprise you not at all that i feel right at home in places like this. >> i agree with you. i'm having much more fun here than i'm having in my fancy hotel, which is in the famous strip. this is more fun. this is more authentic to me. we'll talk a little bit more about this and why it's called at atomic, because they would test the bombs and people would come and watch. i want to talk to you about "parts unknown," the finale for
4:58 pm
this season, detroit. you love detroit. >> look, i love detroit. i think it's a great american city. it's almost everything great arguably that truly american came out of detroit. it was the automobile, the highway, the credit card, the dream of upper mobility. it is an iconic city. it is still, to my mind, a beautiful city. i greatly admire all of the troubles they've had, sort of fierce and very black humored spirit of the people who chose to remain and see it through. it was sort of love at first sight for me. it's a place i felt great loyalty to from way back and a place i wanted to portray on television. >> you went places this season that you have not gone in the previous seasons and on your other shows. tokyo was, shall we say, different. >> i think that's an example of a show -- that's a destination
4:59 pm
i've been to many times, i've made a lot of television there. the challenge, as it often is, to go someplace that we've done before or other people have done before, but show a side to it, an important side, one that most people, for obvious reasons, haven't chosen to put on television. it is some pretty dark, disturbing stuff. but along with all of the things that you're comfortable with and love about japan, there's that, too. it's something i wanted to look at for a while and didn't think i could get away with it. >> the reason i said it was different and interesting is because you talk about sex bondage. you talk about masochism. and i asked you earlier when i saw you, what does all this have to do with food? but it's part of the experience when you go to that country. >> it's part of japanese pop culture. those sorts of images, that sort of fantasy life. it's pretty lurid stuff, but how many copies has "fifty shades of grey" sold in the states?
5:00 pm
so no reason to be too smug about japan being perverted or anything. we're at least as disturbed. you know, they do things in very lurid, very visual ways. >> i'm martin savidge. as you've heard, the season finale of "parts unknown" is coming up. the live special "last bite" from las vegas, that will be at 10:00 eastern. first, anthony bourdain's "parts unknown" from tokyo begins right now. pity the salary man. tokyo's willing cog in an enormous machine requiring long hours, low pay, total dedication. and sometimes, what's called koroshi, death by overwork. here in a society of tight
