The Political Theory Project, in collaboration with Students for a Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) present an Odyssey Lecture with "Freeway" Rick Ross, the drug kingpin turned reformer. After serving a commuted life sentence of over 20 years, Ross has become a social reformer, supporting broad decriminalization, and the economic improvement of poor predominantly minority neighborhoods through a literacy foundation he started and speaking tours to keep kids from turning to the drug trade for easy earnings at their own expense, and that of their community.
