“Radical” Russ Belville, the hyperkinetic host of The Russ Belville Show on, is one of the most ardent and well-informed voices in the fight to legalize medical and adult use cannabis in the United States.

An Idaho native now based in Portland, Oregon, Belville travels extensively, taking his show on the road. He interviews the people who are shaping legalization and defining the parameters of regulations that directly influence cannabis businesses across the nation.

Belville brings a wealth of experience to his current cannabis advocacy efforts, including contributions to High Times and Marijuana Politics. He has also spoken at popular events such as the Seattle Hempfest and he is the former executive director of Portland NORML.
