Back in studio for our special Halloweed show! Our guest is ROBERT PLATSHORN, a.k.a. "The Black Tuna". We'll be discussing his life as America's longest-imprisoned (30 years) non-violent marijuana offender, once referred to by President Carter's attorney general as one of the "slickest, most sophisticated pot smugglers of the 70's." Read all about it in Platshorn's book, "The Black Tuna Diaries". We're also broadcasting from the site of NORML's West Coast Media HQ Halloweed party, with guests such as Oregon NORML's Madeline Martinez and UrbAge Design's Scott Gordon. Plus your calls about the scariest marijuana moments in your life. It's live talk radio from the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Hosted by "Radical" Russ Belville, NORML SHOW LIVE features a recap of the week's top stories in medical marijuana, consumer cannabis, and industrial hemp; interviews with the top cannabis activists, politicians, scientists, doctors, actors, musicians, and comedians; and your calls live at 347-994-1810.
