Malcolm Gladwell is Not A Fan of Legalizing Recreational Marijuana

The bestselling author, journalist, and host of the Revisionist History podcast joins Detroit Today on WDET.

Oakland University

Malcolm Gladwell is a noted author and journalist whose podcast, Revisionist History, takes a look at the misunderstood and overlooked people, events, and ideas of the past.

He’s also the author of best selling books such as Outliers and Blink.

Gladwell visited Oakland University over the weekend for a discussion and Q&A with students.

During his visit, he spoke with Cheyna Roth and Jake Neher about his work, Revisionist History, and marijuana legalization (spoiler alert: he’s not a fan.)
