Civilized at Politicon, a Conversation About the Politics of Marijuana Legalization

Politicon is the foremost non-partisan political event of the season, and we were there to capture it all. 

Civilized's publisher Derek Riedle was joined by VICELAND’s Krishna Andavolu, ex-Trump advisor Roger Stone, ACLU’s Kellen Russoniello, University of Florida’s Kevin Sabet, The Daily Show's Roy Wood, Jr., and blogger Xeni Jardin on a live panel to discuss the politics of marijuana legalization and how it affects everyone from citizens to lawmakers to the economy. 

Civilized also had an exhibitor booth where plenty of celebrity faces stopped by for interviews, including Greg Proops (actor), Jacob Soboroff (MSNBC host), Touré (TV host, political reporter), Clay Aiken (singer, activist), Hasan Piker (from The Young Turks), Michael Steele (former Lt. Governor of Maryland), and more.
