Rob Kampia Returns to the Marijuana Policy Project
Speaking of pot and sex: Celeb Stoner reports—and the Marijuana Policy Project confirms—that executive director Rob Kampia has returned to the organization after a 90-day leave of absence. Kampia returned to his position today after the MPP board took a vote on the issue yesterday (Kampia is also a member of the board). When Kampia stepped down on Jan. 19, in order to undergo therapy to deal with his "attitudes toward women," MPP chairman Peter Lewis said that Kampia's leave would be 90 days at a minimum, at which point the board would reconsider Kampia's role in the organization. By my count, the board actually reinstated Kampia a few days shy of the 90-day period. Perhaps it's a move to stave off more bad press: As Celeb Stoner notes, Kampia's projected return fell serendipitously around 4/20.
