The use of cannabis as a de facto currency predates the founding of the United States and may be found in the historical record in the early 17th century.

America's divide on marijuana. Cannabis Legalization is now front and center. Rick Steves (below): television host and hemp activists. This interview with Rick Steves was conducted by David Downs and originally appeared on Smell the Truth.

Officer Ted Nelson has undergone a slight change in his career.

Ted agreed to speak to me on behalf of himself; his opinions do not necessarily represent those of LEAP. TLO: Ted, you were in charge of training Michigan's law enforcement about how to use civil asset forfeiture back in the 1980s. Would you mind telling me a bit about that? I was on a narcotics enforcement team at the time and was very interested in asset forfeiture and became the instructor for all the state police in Michigan to learn about it. At the time, I thought it was a great tool for law enforcement in the war on drugs. It was a way to go after assets obtained illegally by the sale of illegal drugs, and it seemed [...]
