Speaker Matt McCally will meet with students of the “Introduction to Criminal Justice Class” at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. Matt’s experience as a probation officer in the state of Washington, showed him that there has to be a better way to fight the war on drugs. Matt states that “Potentially, I might have had to send someone back to prison for nothing worse than smoking a joint.” That realization was a major turning point in Matt’s life. Since that moment, Matt has been involved in drug policy reform on various fronts: as a volunteer with local and state ballot initiatives, as the one-time host of a talk radio program on KVI 570 in Seattle, and as the press spokesman for several candidates for elected office. Matt will discuss a variety of drug prohibition issues to both students and faculty during his visit. Location: Katz Pharmacy Building Room 301, University of Missouri at Kansas City.
