Jonathan Miller is a wideranging lawyer. Studying at Harvard, working all over the political arena, leading the Lexington, Kentucky branch of Frost, Brown Todd and finally, acting as the general counsel to the U.S. Hemp Farming and Business Roundtable. Regarding that, he wrote an inspiring article on HuffPo about how the death of a friendly political rival caused him to reexamine the issue of cannabis. In addition, Miller also played the straight man on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, made it to the last table in the World Series of Poker and wrote the peer-reviewed article 'The Evolving Law and Regulation of Industrial Hemp in the United States'.
