This weekly half-hour show features timely and candid interviews with elected officials, judges, scientists, doctors, authors, entertainers, police officers, wardens, prisoners, and patients about current drug war issues, such as medical marijuana, sentencing reform, racial profiling, and police corruption. Interviewees include U.S. Representatives John Conyers (D-MI) and Ron Paul (R-TX), Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman, and Superior Court Judge James Gray.
