    Rescue Radio with Marjorie Cole

    in Religion

    Have you ever wondered which religion is the right one? Join us tonight on Rescue Radio as we sail through the swamp of religious alligators looking for the Highway of Holiness.


    "Because There Is A War For Your Soul" Nothing boring or too political or super spiritual. Just probably some of the most radical and useful information you will find on radio. Join us live Tuesdays at 7pm CST or catch us on the run.


    It’s time to talk straight about the war between God and Satan that is going on in our souls. And though the battle is the Lord’s and has already been won, the Enemy still seems to have a lot to say that has left too many of us doubtful and confused about what is going on and what can be done about it. It is time to talk back and tell it like it is!


    Hosted by Marjorie Cole, founder of Life Recovery, Inc., and author of “Taking the Devil to Court” with Jarry Cole, Pastor of True Light Church as the featured guest pastor and roving co-host.

    Life for MJ Prisoner Speaks Out & Don Duncan On Failure of MMJ Initiatives

    in News

    In 1986 Randy Lanier won a sports car championship and shattered an Andretti record to become the Indy 500 rookie of the year. What most people didn't know is he paid for his racing dreams by smuggling massive quantities of marijuana.


     


    At the height of the Reagan-era War on Drugs, federal prosecutors charged Lanier and his associates with shipping more than 600,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. from Colombia. For eight months, he hid as a fugitive in Antigua, but was eventually caught, arrested, prosecuted and a few days before Christmas 1988 was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.


     


    Under mysterious circumstances that remain sealed by a court order, he was released on Oct. 15, 2014 and is living in a halfway house in Florida. As our first guest, Randy reveals what he is allowed to about his case, speaks out on the necessity of freeing the multitude of people serving life sentences in prison for marijuana prohibition offenses and takes a look at a world that has changed considerably in three decades,


     


    Local initiatives in California communities to allow for patient cultivation and to reverse bans and enact ordinances­­ to allow medical marijuana collectives did not fare well in the November 2014 elections. On the other hand, initiatives to impose taxes on medical marijuana sales did very well. Our 2nd guest is Don Duncan, one of the founders of Americans for Safe Access and currently serving on their Board of Directors, has been up to his neck in alligators on this issue for over a decade.


     


    As the chief lobbyist for ASA, Don has come to learn the intricacies of local and state government and will discuss why the mmj collective and patient cultivation initiatives failed, why taxing marijuana was so popular and what options are available to address the continuing problem of patient access to mmj on the state and local level.

    Running a Reptile Rescue with Christina Obrecht

    in Pets

    What happens when animals are abandoned or let loose? What happens when someone can no longer care for that $75.00 baby alligator that is now 100 pounds? Many wind up with Christina Obrect at her Reptile and Animal sanctuary that she runs from her home in Pennsylvania. I have seen it for myself and it is quite impressive. She has maximized the space that she has to care for as many needy creatures that she can. Her front porch has a gator pond built into it! Join us as we discuss what it takes to run a sanctuary such as hers. The trials and tribulations, the good and the bad. She has seen it all. She is also a trainer and handler of Alligators in addition to being a Lieutenant in her fire company. We will also open the phone lines to take your calls in the second half of the show. Be sure to join us in the chatroom while the broadcast is going on. the chatroom works best with Google and Firefox browsers.
