Bob Pelshaw is a man of many talents and great motivation. His book "From Illegal to Legal: Business Success For (ex) Criminals" contains information on 2nd chances that defy common street-defeatism. He's not just some ordinary white guy armed with nothing but opinions, he's been on both sides of the law.
According to his Amazon profile "Pelshaw stupidly temporarily misused $135,000 of SBA loan proceeds which caused him to receive a felony and serve a ten-month sentence at Leavenworth Federal Prison Camp. Since serving his time he has focused on providing consulting services, writing, public speaking, and public service. He is also the author of 'Raising Up The Champion Within You: David & Goliath Grown-Up Version' and the soon to be released 'Time Management is Dead.'"
You can order his book right here from Amazon. Feel free to leave your comment on the Facebook link by scrolling down below.
A Public Defender helping drug felons get their felonies reduced to misdemeanors under Prop. 47 and what’s happening with the Jack Herer initiative are the featured topics on this week’s Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense Internet podcast.
Proposition 47 reduced non-violent drug possession offenses from felonies to misdemeanors. Reducing felonies to misdemeanors not only benefits people currently in prison but also those who have served their sentences as having a felony on your record can prevent you from getting a job, housing and a host of other life essentials. Wading through the tortuous legal process to have one’s felony reduced to a misdemeanor is daunting, but help is available. In this case it is in the place one would least likely expect it – San Bernardino County.
Our first guest is Daniel Edber, deputy Public Defender for San Bernardino County, who has undertaken a program to help ex-non-violent drug offenders get their felony convictions reduced to misdemeanors. How the program works, why he is doing it, how successful the program has been and why San Bernardino and how the powers-that-be have reacted to the program will be covered.
The California Cannabis and Hemp Initiative aka The Jack Herer Initiative has vied to be on the ballot for a number of years and 2016 is in their sights again. Considered by many to be one of the best legalization initiatives available, the 2016 initiative still retains at its core the aims and goals of the legendary Jack Herer.
The show’s second guest is Patrick Moore who has worked on past CCHI initiatives and has undertaken one of the leading roles in the 2016 CCHI. How the initiative differs from previous CCHI initiatives, the coalition behind its newest incarnation and their plans to get it on the ballot will be revealed.
