Greer's education and background is in Business Administration, computer technology, and motivational psychology. He approaches much of his drug policy reform efforts from a business oriented perspective.

DrugSense/MAP is comprised of a nationwide network of volunteer activists dedicated to Disseminating honest and accurate information on all aspects of drug policy to the media, policy makers, and the general public. The organization utilizes state of the art communications technology to directly approach and educate the media and the public on drug policy topics in a variety of ways. The organization has developed the most popular drug policy web pages in existence. It has also archived thousands of news articles. As the largest project of DrugSense MAP has been responsible for generating thousands of published letters to the editor. These letters have an equivalent advertising value of estimated in the millions of dollars. MAP also engages in radio and TV interviews, and letter writing campaigns to political leaders with the aim of educating the media the and the public on drug policy issues

The exciting concepts Greer espouses could well mark the beginning of the end of the fallacious, biased, and often nonsensical information we have long endured in various media presentations on topics of drugs and drug policy. Challenging and exposing the individuals and organizations that put forth such inaccuracies is among Greer's most important objectives.
