gary wiegert missouri marijuana gag order

The story of Missouri police officer Gary Wiegert is a prime example of just how hard people will fight to keep marijuana illegal. For those of you that don't know, Gary Wiegert was hired by the Show-Me Cannabis Regulation lobbying group to help lobby for marijuana reform in Missouri. After his bosses found out, he was issued a gag order to cease his activities. What about First Amendment rights you ask? Apparently they don't matter when it comes to fighting for sensible marijuana reform. Below is a video about Mr. Wiegert's fight.
