Miss California Wins Miss USA

Alyssa Campanella, the 21-year-old Miss California, won the Miss USA pageant Sunday night after fielding a question about medical marijuana. "I'm not sure if it should be legalized, if it would really affect, with the drug war," she said in her winning answer. "I mean, it's abused today, unfortunately, so that's the only reason why I would kind of be a little bit against it, but medically it's OK." Campanella is a self-described “history geek” and fan of Star Wars. She will represent the United States at Miss Universe in September. - DB via AP
