Our first guest is Morgan Fox, Communications Manager for MPP providing insights into the planning and preparations being made in 2015 to insure the success of these marijuana legalization initiatives. With a successful track record at the ballot box unmatched by any other organization, Mr. Fox will lay out the plans for success and most importantly how you can participate with MPP to make the world safe for marijuana.
20 miles from the sprawling 29 Palms Marine Base and just 15 miles from the renowned Joshua Tree National Park, sits Yucca Valley a small desert town of 20,000. The town had “tolerated” one medical marijuana dispensary for three years but forced it to close in 2014. Our second guest is Jason Elassner who headed the successful campaign to place an initiative before voters allowing dispensaries to open. Having collected enough signatures to require a special election, Jason will divulge the backroom deals and expose the small town intrigues that are changing the political landscape.

Had someone told Cheri Sicard back in back in 1996, when California’s Prop 215 first legalized marijuana for medicinal use, that she would become entrenched in the cannabis movement and become a well known marijuana activist, she would not have believed them. Other than the rare toke at a party, Cheri didn’t use marijuana. It wasn’t until she was in her late 30’s when her doctor suggested she try cannabis to help with a chronic medical problem, that the herb became a permanent fixture in her life.
In the course of about 6 months Cheri went from the typical closeted American marijuana smoker to an outspoken cannabis advocate, and she hasn’t looked back since. She works with numerous marijuana reform groups and can frequently be found organizing rallies, speaking at city council meetings, and giving classes on various aspects of marijuana, as well as advocating for clemency efforts for prisoners serving life sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenses.
Cheri’s Cannabis Gourmet Cookbook (2012, Z-Dog Media) is one of the most popular and well reviewed books of its kind. Her new book, Mary Jane: The Complete Marijuana Handbook for Women (Seal Press) has been garnering great reviews in the world of cannabis and in the mainstream press as well.
Prior to entering the world of cannabis, Cheri worked as a professional writer, recipe developer, and internet entrepreneur. Her passions for patriotism and country can be found in her earlier books The Great American Handbook (2002 Berkley Trade Editions); U.S. Citizenship for Dummies (2003 Wiley); and Everyday American (2008 Bookspan).
Going back even further, Cheri spent her childhood and early adult years as a professional circus performer, magician and mentalist, jobs that allowed her to travel extensively around the country and the world.
We the people, have a clear understanding that we must obey the law. No doubt about it. We do not advocate breaking the law. However, we do insist on the opportunity to change the laws if they do not fit our public opinion as a majority. Thank goodness that we are in a country where our fore fathers have provided us with the necessary tools to do so. We live in a land where young men and women in uniform, defend our pursuit of happiness by laying their lives on the line over seas and domestically. Where a tribune of law is supposed to be fair and just to all of its citizens.
This radio station is dedicated to actively engage listeners and help raise awareness about the unjust laws in Virginia surrounding Marijuana.
We are the people. We are for the people and we are aware that if we can unite, we can make a difference.
ABOVE THE IGNORANCE.
Hampton Roads Today is a new show that will deal with hard issues, current events and hot topics that impact the Hampton Roads, Virginia community, the nation and the global community.
In upcoming issues through 2013, mass communication students from Norfolk State Univerversity will be bringing you broadcasts on a host of subjects from the legalization of marijuana to the impact of rap music on today's youth. In today's episode, mass communication and journalism student Franklin Pierre will interview a panel, pro and con, on issues with the legalization of marijuana. Pierre will interview Dr. Carol Pretlow, professor of political science at Norfolk State University and Dr. Arthur Bowman, professor of anatomy also from Norfolk State University. Pretlow's area of expertise is international law and politics and Bowman's expertise is in how drugs and the environment impact the human body.
A solution for a BROKEN ECONOMY. A STAND FOR THE RIGHTS of the American people. A voice for those oppressed by those who wear badges. This station is fueled by ENLIGHTED conciousness and PROTECTED by the 1st Amendment.
We are determined to spread the word and unite with those who already know it. The negative stigma that has been placed on Marijuana far surpasses Politics and is an infringement on the basic rights of human beings.
Are roses illegal? No that's silly, right? It's a plant. Why would it be illegal?
I know that if we unite, we are many. Many more than them.
We will lead the way, with peace and non judgement. Something that our law enforcement counter parts have neglected us for ages.
STOP THE OPRESSION TODAY.
those who STAND FOR NOTHING, are sure to FALL FOR ANYTHING.
ROLL UP, TUNE IN, PEACE OUT.
Maine is considered a key state to pass a marijuana legalization initiative and two groups are seeking to put an initiative on the November 2016 ballot. One is the Washington DC based Marijuana Policy Project which has funded successful legalization initiatives in Colorado and Oregon. The other is Legalize Maine, a local group which has a different approach to legalization and is working to put their initiative on the ballot. Why Maine is such a hot bed for marijuana legalization and how the two initiatives differ will be discussed by our first guest Campaign Coordinator for Legalize Maine Peter McCarrier.
Billed as the “Definitive Cup for the Fall Harvest” Sonoma County’s 11th Annual Emerald Cup is one of the best and certainly most authentic of the multitude of U.S. cannabis cup competitions. With awards for a variety of categories for buds, concentrates, edibles, topicals and photos, the Emerald Cup is complete with a music fest with multiple bands headlined by the fusion band Slightly Stoopid. Tim Blake, founder and chief organizer of the Emerald Cup is the show’s 2nd guest recalling how the Emerald Cup came to be and the cannabis extravaganza the Dec. 13 and 14th event is going to be.
Marijuana, weed, chronic, dank, who hasn't smoked it? In recent years the argument for legalizing marijuana has grown more popular. Some say the war on marijuana is costing more than its worth. Many still argue that marijuana is the gateway drug. We will be taking a look at the economics, health issues and criminal aspect of marijuana.
Special guest Steve Sarich, Executive Director, Cannabis Action Coalition will join us today.
July 1, 2015 first day to legally use marijuana legally without a prescription in my home state of Oregon. The people used the ballot box to change the law. In a 69% voter turnout, legalization won 56.11% to 43.89%. In votes, that is 847,865 to 663,346.
On the other hand, national figures like Chris Christie are all but declaring war on citizen sourced law that allows the use of marijuana. Governor Christie is not alone.
Those with national and international concerns are quietly trying to deal with international treaty violations that would be easily solved if marijuana was no longer a Schedule I prohibited substance under federal law (although US Attorney General Eric Holder said the Justice Department will allow Washington and Colorado to proceed unhindered).
But the public rehtoric is about crime waves and declining moral values, claims that appear steadfast even in the face of the positive outcomes for legalization leaders Colorado and Washington (you on the east coast call it Washington State - we in the northwest call the nation’s capitol DC): tax income, reduced crime, even homicides and sexual assaults.
So while we in Oregon see the clock is ticking down to THE BIG DAY, it appears that members of the anti legalization team are plotting to make this as difficult a transition of law as possible.
We will ask Steve Sarich to give us the 411 on 420 on today's Lunch with Louden.
