"Russ Belville has his thumb on the pulse of marijuana reform. His unique combination of knowledge, wherewithal, persistence, and enthusiasm make him the ideal "go to" guy for anybody interested in clear explanations, accessible discussions, and intriguing clarifications about the world's most notorious plant." --- Dr. Mitch Earleywine, author of Understanding Marijuana: A New Look at the Scientific Evidence
"Nobody tells the history of marijuana and its prohibition like Russ Belville does. He has a special talent for presenting scholarship in a remarkably engaging way. That’s why I turned to Russ when I needed someone to present on the subject to the annual staff retreat of the Drug Policy Alliance. And it’s why I repeatedly recommend him for speaking and media opportunities. He’s good!" --- Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director, Drug Policy Alliance
"If I were to participate in a talkshow on the subject of marijuana and I could pick the interviewer, my choice would invariably be Russ Belville. He is articulate, perspicacious and dogged, and he brings a large fund of knowledge to the subject. His good nature and fine sense of humor help to put the interviewee at ease. He is the whole package." --- Dr. Lester Grinspoon MD, Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School (Emeritus), Author of Marihuana: The Forbidden Medicine and Marijuana Reconsidered
Oh goody kids; another piece by the “Master of Deception,” filled with lies, half truths, and junk science all in an attempt to mislead the masses. The pied piper of potheads throughout the fruited plains, Russ Belville, still clowning around as a journalist. Good job Russ, you’re just the best!!! Not!
I think you’ve used the stuff too long Russ baby, the delusions are starting to set in. Stay away from South Beach. They’ve already had one “pot induced” cannibal eat the face off of a homeless guy, they don’t need another one.
And stay away from guns and movie theaters, in Colorado, Rusty!! We wouldn’t have to worry about you entering a movie theater dressed up as a character from Batman, for you’d feel much more comfortable dressed in your normal attire. Make sure you don’t forget your big red rubber nose, multi colored wig and the rest of your clown costume.
Praise for The Russ Belville Show
