Rick Steves - Ending Marijuana Prohibition in Oregon

Guidebook author and TV host Rick Steves has travelled the world for 30 years and seen how different societies tackle the same problems. Steves shares why this experience makes him concerned about Oregon’s current approach to marijuana — so concerned that he traveled around the state to talk about it during a 6-day, 10-city tour. Steves co-sponsored Washington’s successful ballot measure to regulate, legalize and tax marijuana. He shares that state’s track record, other countries’ track records and where the drug reform movement is heading.

We hear excerpts from Steves' talk in Beaverton on October 8th.
Produced by Ken Jones.
