My qualified but largely positive

Daniel Radosh

My qualified but largely positive review (has there been any other kind) of Eric Schlosser's Reefer Madness appears in the current issue of People (sorry, not online). Insider anecdote: I originally cited a factoid in the book that Newt Gingrich once proposed the death penalty for smuggling two ounces of pot. Kyle thought that sounded wrong and checked Schlosser's source for it -- only to find that there was none. Guess Schlosser thought that silence was better than saying, Um, I found it on the Internet (no, the Washington Post article cited does not exist).
