America’s most courageous insider, Dr. Jeffrey Wigand

In the mid 1990s, Dr. Jeffrey Wigand was a bio chemist working for a large tobacco firm in Kentucky. He went on to become one the world’s most well known whistleblowers after he revealed “inside” information that America’s tobacco industry deliberately manipulated cigarettes to be more addictive. His story, and specifically the struggle to air his interview on the CBS show “60 Minutes” was the subject of the 1999 Academy Award nominated film, “The Insider,” which featured Russell Crowe and Al Pacino. Wigand joins Mac to talk about that experience as well as the state of the tobacco industry, whistleblowing, and the dangers he sees from legalizing marijuana.
