Richard Belzer, Cannabis Advocate and Celebrity from Law and Order | TNMNews.com

We had the opportunity to chat with Richard Belzer, the comedian and former Law and Order actor while at the CWCBExpo in New York. Richard has been a major advocate of cannabis his whole life and is a self proclaimed child of the sixties. He hopes for marijuana legalization nationally and believes the social injustice people face due to cannabis prohibition must end.

Belzer appeared playing Detective John Munch in Homicide: Life on the Street (1993) (originating series), Law & Order (1990) (crossover), Law & Order: Trial by Jury (2005) (crossover), The X-Files (1993) (crossover), The Beat (2000) (guest appearance in the short-lived UPN series), and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999). He followed John Ratzenberger and George Wendt, who played Cliff Clavin and Norm Peterson in Cheers (1982), St. Elsewhere (1982), The Tortellis (1987), Wings (1990), The Simpsons (1989), and Frasier (1993). Belzer upped his record to eight series with an appearance in 2 episodes of Arrested Development (2003) during a scrap-booking sting(airing in 2006) and a cameo appearance in the 4th-to-last episode of David Simon’s HBO series The Wire: Took (2008) (originally airing February 17, 2008); the appearance brought the character of Munch full circle as the character was born out of Simon’s first series, Homicide, and in the scene he is hanging out in a police bar commenting on his experience owning a bar, which he did in Homicide.
