Comic Maz Jobrani describes playing Beirut. Also Retired Lt. Commander Diane Goldstein from LEAP tells us how cops benefit financially by keeping marijuana illlegal. She goes on to call for the legalization of marijuana. Founded on March 16, 2002, LEAP is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization made up of current and former members of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities who are speaking out about the failures of our existing drug policies. LEAP believes, "Those policies have failed, and continue to fail, to effectively address the problems of drug abuse, especially the problems of juvenile drug use, the problems of addiction, and the problems of crime caused by the existence of a criminal black market in drugs." Also Eddie Pepitone, Janie Haddad Tompkins and Hal Lublin. Portions of today's show written by Hal Lublin, David Weiss and David Feldman.
