Pot Prevails: Rob Kampia Discusses Marijuana’s Recent Political Triumphs
uploaded by  on Nov 11, 2011


Medical marijuana is now legal in 16 states plus the District of Columbia, according to Rob Kampia, co-founder and executive director of the Marijuana Policy Project.

Kampia speaks to Reason.tv’s Nick Gillespie, and says that advocates for legalizing marijuana have recently seen the best run of victories, ever. He explains why he thinks marijuana has moved to the back burner of political issues, and why this might cost President Obama come November of next year.

Held each July in Las Vegas, FreedomFest is attended by roughly 2,000 libertarians and advocates of limited government. Reason.tv spoke with over two dozen speakers and attendees, and will be releasing interviews over the coming weeks. For an ever-growing playlist, go here now.
