Six years ago, Travis Maurer was arrested for growing marijuana in his home in Columbia, Missouri. After his conviction, he moved to Oregon, where he found a much more pot-friendly environment. So friendly, in fact, that Travis decided to lead a push to legalize marijuana in that state. On election day 2014, the voters of Oregon passed the law by a 12-point margin, and it went into effect on July 1, 2015.
Today on my show, I talked with Travis about his journey from convicted pot felon to successful marijuana activist, and how soon he thinks Missouri might follow the lead of Oregon, Colorado, Washington, and Alaska in legalizing recreational and/or medical marijuana.
