Mr. Barry Grissom, nominated by President Obama to be the chief federal prosecuting attorney and law enforcement official for the state of Kansas, and confirmed by the United States Senate for that position, recently resigned from that office and has become an outspoken and passionate advocate for the legalization of marijuana. Mr. Grissom will be the featured guest on tonight’s edition of “Sex, Drugs and Civil Liberties”, the weekly program on KOPN, 89.5 FM, hosted by Dan Viets, Columbia attorney and Missouri Coordinator of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.
Mr. Grissom was the U.S. Attorney for the state of Kansas for six years. Since leaving that office six months ago, he has spoken at national NORML legal seminars in Aspen, Colorado and Key West, Florida.
He is firmly committed to the principle that marijuana prohibition is a social evil which causes far more harm than good.
Mr. Grissom is believed to be the highest-ranking former Department of Justice official to actively advocate for the repeal of marijuana prohibition. His unique experience as the chief federal law enforcement officer for the state of Kansas for six years gives his advocacy a special credibility which has drawn the attention of legislators and other policymakers around the country. Please tune for this unique and newsworthy interview.
Tonight’s interview with Mr. Grissom commences shortly after 7:00 p.m. on KOPN. The program is live-streamed around the globe at KOPN.org.
