NORML’s Founder, Keith Stroup, on NORML at 40

  • by Russ Belville, NORML Outreach Coordinator March 3, 2011

    An hour-long conversation with the founder of NORML on his recollection of four decades in marijuana law reform and what the future holds for NORML.

    You’ll hear Keith’s look back at the whirlwind of reform in the 1970s, how the culture wars of the 1980s almost did us in, his opinions on the wisdom of continuing the 1990s – 2000s push for medical marijuana laws, and the future of NORML in the 2010s and beyond… but not TOO far beyond!

    And what would Keith’s late friend Dr. Hunter S. Thompson think of the recent “gonzo” phenomenon of Charlie Sheen?  It’s the money quote of the whole interview!

      Keith Stroup is a legalization movement legend, a stalwart defender of American freedom. I hope his victory is close at hand.

      Nice interview. I think the Obama answer to legalization will help us even more so than expected. I have a feeling that a lot of people are unfamiliar with the Dutch-like concept of soft and hard drug categorization. Most people, at this current time, probably wouldn’t support all drug legalization, but if asked all drugs they may “settle” for marijuana.

      I’m a college student in the application process for medical school and hope I can contribute to the idea that not all supporters are dirty hippies (nothing wrong with dirty hippies by the way) at least in my social arena. However, I do not have the opportunity to be active in my support because of the behavior expected from medical schools looking to accept me. Nor do I have the time or resources to strongly contribute. Therefore, I am extremely grateful to those that have dedicated themselves to this worthy cause. thank you
