Today was the first of a series of five weekly interviews on cannabis policy with Brian Lehrer of WNYC (New York public radio). We discussed the demographics of heavy smoking and other topics. Audio at the jump.

Lehrer did a better job than I did, but on the other hand it was 10:40 in New York but only 7:40 in Olympia, where I’ve been working this week. There seem to be alternative origin myths for the term “Sour Diesel” as applied to cannabis; any reader with expert knowledge is invited to share it.
