The Constitution and Cannabis - Civil Rights in the War on Marijuana

Presented by Russ Belville.

Is there a civil right to smoke pot? How do your Constitutional rights work in the Drug War? NORML Outreach Coordinator Russ Belville explores the "drug war exception" to the Bill of Rights. Learn the history of federal laws that have criminalized cannabis, and how lawmakers and judges have slowly eroded the entire Bill of Rights and stretched the Commerce Clause to the point of incredulity. You can also learn how to best defend yourself from intrusions on your liberty from police officers.
