On November 10th, 2014 New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced a new pot policy that would no longer allow the NYPD to arrest people caught with less than 25 grams of marijuana in their possesion. Although, some would agree that this new pot policy, which went into effect on November 19th, 2014 is a step in the right direction - many drug decriminalization advocates are not convinced that New York's new policy will, as Bill de Blasio said, "reduce the number of unnecessary arrests for minor marijuana possession and put an end to an era where many of young New Yorkers were being arrested and saddled with criminal records for minor violations."
According to the Drug Policy Alliance, the majority of these young New Yorkers are Black and Latino men and in this year alone they accounted for 86% of New Yorkers arrested for minor marjiuana possesion. So, what kind of impact will New York's new policy have on minority communities and the number of racially biased arrests?
Here to answer that question and walk us through New York's new pot policy is Kassandra Frederique the New York policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance. The Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) is the nation's leading organization promoting drug policies that are grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.
Marijuana legalization measures have been a mixed bag of good and bad for medical marijuana patients. With California most likely to have a legalization initiative on the ballot in 2016, legalization proponents want to work with medical marijuana patients to ensure that their rights are protected under any marijuana legalization initiatives that are on the ballot.
Dale Sky Jones is Director of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform, a California based nonpartisan organization dedicated to ending marijuana prohibition through ballot initiatives, legislative collaboration and public education campaigns. As the shows first guest, Ms. Jones will provide information on the series of roundtable discussions being held in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Ana on Jan. 30 and 31. Information on prospects for the 2016 initiatives and how patients can work together to make sure they do not have a negative impact is at the center of these community forums.
Students for Sensible Drug Policy at the University of California at Irvine are sponsoring a symposium on Saturday, Feb. 21 that will bring together experts from the legal, political, and judicial arenas, as well as civil rights activists, harm reduction workers, entrepreneurs, and full-time reform workers for an in-depth look at how U.S. drug policies have affected society, and what lies ahead on the horizon.
The show’s second guest is Lauren Ayn Mendelsohn, coordinator for SSDP at UCI who is also a J.D. Candidate, 2016. She will explain the ins and outs of this important symposium and reveal the names of the invited speakers and participants. Marijuana law reform is a key component of the reform process and Ms. Mendelsohn will provide information on how this is incorporated into the symposium’s presentations.

This Monday Graphic Policy Radio is back for a brand new episode dedicated to Marvel's Agent Carter. The show will air LIVE at 10pm ET. Joining us is return guest Scott Kaufman, who you might know as SEK.
The winter/spring television season has begun, and debuting is Marvel's Agent Carter, filling the space until Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns. Years before Agent Coulson and his S.H.I.E.L.D. team swore to protect those who cannot protect themselves from threats they cannot conceive, there was Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, "Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger," "Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier") who pledged the same oath but lived in a different time when women weren't recognized as being as smart or as tough as their male counterparts.
With three episodes on the air, we'll talk about what we think so far.
Scott is the proprietor of the AV Club’s Internet Film School and an associate editor at The Raw Story. He also writes for Lawyers, Guns & Money, podcasts, and is an expert on Game of Thrones.
So listen in LIVE, and join the conversation too. We want to hear what you have to say, so call us at (619) 768-2952 or Tweet us your thoughts to @graphicpolicy.
