City Paper Podcast - Talking Marijuana reform with Patrick Nightingale of PGH NORML

"Marijuana is defined as a 'noxious weed', it's a summary offense for someone who's letting their yard get overgrown."

In this week's episode, we're sitting down with Patrick Nightingale, executive director of Pittsburgh NORML (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) to discuss the future of this noxious weed (more on that later). Why is it illegal in the first place? What's behind the shift in perception over the past 25 years? Are Bob Marley, Cheech & Chong, and Shaggy good for the cause? Patrick Nightingale is the man to ask. So we did. Thanks to Charlie Deitch for joining.
