What was the best marijuana movie of the past decade? Who's the most famous entertainer to be busted for pot so far this year? Is Willie Nelson really as cool and kind as everyone says he is? What was it like working with Jack Herer before he became famous? We find the answers to these and other questions on Morning Talk Radio this July 4th when Doug McVay, who's sitting in for our regular hosts Celeste and Cecil, speaks with the journalist and author Steve Bloom. And they'll be taking calls, so you can join the conversation.
