An Hour With Robert ‘Bobby Tuna’ Platshorn


This is a special treat to veteran marijuana reformers. Radical Russ Belville visited with Robert ‘the Tuna’ Platshorn while he was in Florida. Robert Platshorn served a longer sentence for a marijuana only offense than anyone else in United States history. I have met him a handful of times, and he is the best public speaker the marijuana reform movement has in my opinion. No one has stories like his. He is doing big, big things in Florida and beyond, and his current work with senior citizens is vital to the fight. See the video below:

“We visit the West Palm Beach home of Robert Platshorn, aka “Bobby Tuna”, America’s longest-serving non-violent marijuana prisoner (29 years), author of “Black Tuna Diaries” and the forthcoming “Greed and Evil”, star of “Square Grouper” and the pitchman behind “Should Grandma Smoke Pot?”, part of TheSilverTour.org.”
