NEW YORK (AP) - Former Seattle police chief Norm Stamper has joined legions of legalize-marijuana advocates who are slamming the Kellogg Co. for deciding to cut ties with Olympic hero Michael Phelps after he was photographed with a pot pipe.
Stamper, who is active in the push for easing marijuana laws, released a letter to Kellogg in which he pleaded for "sane, sensible, and compassionate drug policies" and suggested the company had "underestimated the country's maturity on this issue."
He also said he had purchased his last box of what had been his favorite cereal - Kellogg's Mueslix.
