We are witnesses to the advent of a new age: a medical and recreational one. And unless you’ve been behind a cloud of smoke, we’ve recently witnessed more than 20 states approve marijuana use for medicinal purposes. Fadia Bascom, our awesome guest host, takes over the airwaves once again to discuss marijuana in America. Her two special guests are Larry Love and Sohum Shah.
Sohum Shah is the Chief Operating Officer of the Cannabis Commodities Exchange (CCX). CCX is the premier online wholesale transaction platform for state-licensed canna-businesses in Colorado and was launched at the 2014 High Times US Cannabis Cup in Denver. Soon after, CCX expanded operations to Washington's adult-use system.
Larry Love has been a patient and advocate for the Medical Cannabis Program (MC) in New Mexico since 2009. He also produces and hosts a weekly live MMJ Talk Show on the internet. For two years, Love managed one of Santa Fe’s first Medical Marijuana Dispensaries which specialized in front-end sales and patient cannabis consultations. In addition, Love's a LOTTO expert and has appeared on several networks including NBC, ABC, CBS, and CNN.
Of all communities that would benefit from regular cannabis use is our senior citizens. Robert Platshorn, founder of the senior citizen outreach program The Silver Tour and of HBO’s Black Tuna diaries fame, is the first featured guest.
In Florida are lots and lots and lots of senior citizens and their vote will be crucial in getting the mmj initiative on the November 2014 Florida ballot passed. Getting senior citizens to connect the benefits to their health from marijuana use with a yes vote on Florida’s mmj initiative is crucial. Robert will explain how they are going to do that.
Obtaining a medical marijuana recommendation to use marijuana is now legal in 22 states and the District of Columbia. THCF Medical Foundation has been providing recommendations since 1999 making it one of the oldest medical marijuana recommendations services in the country. They have clinics in Oregon, Washington, California, Colorado, Nevada, Hawaii and Michigan. Clinics will be opening soon in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Washington D.C.
A private non-profit foundation, they are taking the company public so big changes are on the way and Paul Stanford, founder and President, will be on hand to give you this exciting information from the largest provider of medical marijuana recommendations in the nation.
The Americas Program of the Center for International Policy is a leading source of information for activists, academics and citizens concerned about US foreign policy toward Latin America and movements for social justice within the hemisphere. The show’s first guest, Laura Carlsen, Director of CIP Americas, will provide information on this relatively unknown but important organization and explain their programs including those dealing with our country’s War on Drugs in Latin America. For more information on CIP Americas, CLICK HERE.
From San Diego County to Sonoma County, Step Sherer, Exectuive Director of Americans for Safe Access, is making a whirlwind tour of California providing information and seeking input from patients on what needs to be accomplished on the state and local level regarding legislation on bans, patient rights and commercial regulation. Why the tour is happening and what is hoped to be accomplished will be explained along with tour dates, times and locations.
Today, I’m welcoming Dr. Mary Ann Block, back to the show to talk about the medical use of marijuana: how it impacts symptoms or diseases, how many states have legalized its use, the regulations they have around it, what their motivation would be to legalize/not legalize it, and more. Here's a link to her article on Plaid for Women: "Marijuana: Legalize or Not?"

ENVISION THIS: In the new holistic paradigm that includes medical marijuana, mind-body-spirit health is the biggest priority.
Our guest, Norma Eckroate, is author of The Medical Marijuana Handbook: A Patient’s Guide to Holistic Healing with Cannabis. She writes, “As a cannabis patient myself, I have distilled information in these pages that I found essential in my personal quest to understand the herb, its various forms, and the new options available to patients. I want to answer your questions, soothe your concerns, and give you the information you – or a family member or friend – need to effectively use medical cannabis.”
She speaks and writes about many aspects of the medical use of cannabis including her own experience, self-healing capacity of the body, the chemistry of this “superherb”, various sub-species for energizing or relaxing, balancing the autonomic nervous system, product options, safety, side-effects including psychoactive effects, and legal aspects of medical usage.
Our favorite chapter is her last, How to Deal with the New Normal – Being a Patient Requires Patience. Her guidelines include but are not limited to: let go of victim / martyr energy; remember that you are worthy; let go of the need to JADE -- justify, argue, defend or explain yourself; stop juggling so many balls and decide which priorities really matter; eat a super-nutritious diet; indulge in vitamin P (pleasure) with every meal and snack; treat yourself to more fun and joy.
