In this episode Pot Talk Radio will focus on UNGASS.
What is UNGASS?
The United Nations General Assembly Special Session, or UNGASS, is a meeting of UN member states to assess and debate global issues such as health, gender, or in this case, the world’s drug control priorities. The last time a special session on drugs was held, in 1998, its focus was the total elimination of drugs from the world. Today, political leaders and citizens are pushing to rethink that ineffective and dangerous approach.
In this episdoe of Pot Talk Radio we will focus on David DePriest. David is serving 22 years for marijuana.

Bernard Noble was visiting his father in New Orleans 3 ½ years ago when two cops spotted him riding a bicycle. They stopped Noble, frisked him and found a small amount of marijuana — the equivalent of two joints.
Noble, a 47-year-old truck driver and father of three, is now serving a 13-year prison sentence after a jury found him guilty of marijuana possession. It was his fifth drug-possession conviction. He originally was sentenced to five years, but Orleans Parish District Attorney Leon Cannizzaro Jr. appealed and got a longer sentence.
Mr Noble was found with three grams of marijuana in his pocket. For this he received 15 years in prison. At the same time Alaska on legalizing marijuana, already Colorado and Washington State made.

To understand the word, you must study the word. And with study of the word, the Holy Spirit then tucks it away into your heart and brings forth the word in times of need. The word of God will get you through every battle you face in this world, whether through comfort, to fight off the enemy or knowledge.

Tonight we will be joined by some of the amazing women of The Well Women's Ministry, which is a ministry our host Dani Wright is apart of. They will share some insight on the ministry and what they have in store in the future.
Do you recall the story of the woman at the well? While most of us are familiar with the story from the Bible, sometimes we fail to apply the story to our own spiritual lives. The Well has both an individual and communal meaning. It represents fulfillment, healing, community, purity and a place of social engagement.
The purpose of the original service was to engage in a night of worship, prayer, praise and fellowship, while developing a better understanding of what a well represents for women individually and collectively. What originally was to be one service to encourage, empower, and set free women, transformed into something never imagined.
