On the Wednesday, February 11th 2015 broadcast at 1PM Eastern and 10AM Pacific our special guest is Amy Baxter, MD Founder and CEO MMJ Labs which is dedicated to personal pain control.
'As a pain researcher, when her son had unnecessarily traumatic routine vaccinations, she knew there must be a better way. Dr. Baxter invented, tested, got over 1M in grant funding, researched, and ultimately developed manufacturing for Buzzy and other Personal Pain Products.'
According to MMJ Labs website:
'Buzzy® is a reusable breakthrough personal pain device that provides natural pain relief. Gate control is the basis for Buzzy®, physiologically overwhelming the body’s pain nerves with benign cold (ice wings) and vibration (Buzzy’s body). Like a dentist jiggling a jaw or putting a burned finger under cool water, cold and vibration control sharp pain from shots, cosmetic injections and IVs, and temporarily relieve muscle soreness and burning from medications. Independently verified research shows Buzzy works!'

Upland is the town in California that conspired with federal authorities to have collective operator Aaron Sandusky arrested, prosecuted in a kangaroo court and incarcerated in federal prison for 10 years. Now the small Inland Empire town faces a special election to rescind their ban that has been maliciously enforced and replaced with an ordinance that allows for a licensed and regulated MMJ distribution system.
The show’s first guest is Upland initiative Campaign coordinator Craig Beresh revealing the sordid and scandal plagued recent history of Upland, the wildly successful signature gathering campaign that collected enough signatures to require a special election and the nefarious plots being hatched by the city to prevent the election from being held.

In 1986 Randy Lanier won a sports car championship and shattered an Andretti record to become the Indy 500 rookie of the year. What most people didn't know is he paid for his racing dreams by smuggling massive quantities of marijuana.
At the height of the Reagan-era War on Drugs, federal prosecutors charged Lanier and his associates with shipping more than 600,000 pounds of marijuana into the U.S. from Colombia. For eight months, he hid as a fugitive in Antigua, but was eventually caught, arrested, prosecuted and a few days before Christmas 1988 was sentenced to life in prison without possibility of parole.
Under mysterious circumstances that remain sealed by a court order, he was released on Oct. 15, 2014 and is living in a halfway house in Florida. As our first guest, Randy reveals what he is allowed to about his case, speaks out on the necessity of freeing the multitude of people serving life sentences in prison for marijuana prohibition offenses and takes a look at a world that has changed considerably in three decades,
Local initiatives in California communities to allow for patient cultivation and to reverse bans and enact ordinances to allow medical marijuana collectives did not fare well in the November 2014 elections. On the other hand, initiatives to impose taxes on medical marijuana sales did very well. Our 2nd guest is Don Duncan, one of the founders of Americans for Safe Access and currently serving on their Board of Directors, has been up to his neck in alligators on this issue for over a decade.
As the chief lobbyist for ASA, Don has come to learn the intricacies of local and state government and will discuss why the mmj collective and patient cultivation initiatives failed, why taxing marijuana was so popular and what options are available to address the continuing problem of patient access to mmj on the state and local level.

In January 2011 the Veterans Administration issued a directive stating that patients in pain control treatment who are participating in state marijuana programs “must not be denied VHA services.” Despite this, numerous complaints have come from vets being denied their pain medicines and other VA services because they find benefit to using marijuana medicinally.
The guests on the Monday, February 16 at 6 p.m. show have been working with government administrators and elected officials to insure that veterans are not denied VA benefits because they chose to use marijuana medicinally.
Michael Karwitz, Executive Director of Veterans for Medical Cannabis, is a disabled veteran who has benefited greatly from medicinal cannabis. He has worked with national and international organizations furthering the use of medicinal marijuana. Having met personally with many VA administrators, it was his efforts that led to the issuance of the directive protecting veterans from being denied VA benefits if they use marijuana.
Marcus Boyd is the Vice Chair of the San Diego Chapter of Americans for Safe Access. He has been denied his pain medication by the San Diego VA because of his use of cannabis and has called for action to protest his and other vets’ denial of services. Mr. Boyd also obtained a bit of notoriety when his grow was raided by a DEA agent wearing a shirt proclaiming "Fuck the growers...Marijuana is still illegal."
Ellen Komp, Deputy Director of CaNORML is a long-time activist working on both medical marijuana and legalization issues. She has been working with elected officials on the federal and state level to address vets using medical marijuana being denied VA benefits and has been involved in organizing veterans to protect to their rights to VA and cannabis benefits.
One of the leading political operatives within the cannabis movement here in California, Sean Donahoe is co-founder of the California Cannabis Industry Association. Sean lives in Oakland but is regularly in the Capitol or traveling around the state, speaking with activists and elected officials while organizing this industry with an activist mindset.
In addition to his work with CCIA, he helped write the United Food and Commercial Workers national organizing plan for the cannabis industry, served on the executive board of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform, created several political action committees, and advised several local ballot measure committees last year. Sean's work at the grassroots and grasstops for the cannabis industry has given him insider insights into the many political challenges facing the marijuana law reform movement. Listen in as he shares these insights along with what he sees coming up in the months and years ahead.
Yami Bolanos, cancer survivor, medical cannabis patient and director of the Greater Los Angeles Collective Alliance is one of the chief lobbyists behind a bill introduced by Assemblyman Marc Levine (D-San Rafael) that will protect medical marijuana patients from being denied organ transplants because of their use of marijuana medicinally.
Bolanos, who also suffers from liver cirrhosis, underwent a successful transplant 19 years ago and was told after her first transplant that she may eventually need another one in order to survive.
In addition to telling her story, Ms. Balonos will explain how the bill came into being and how it will protect medical marijuana patients from being denied life-saving organ transplants.
Collectives have been under assault almost since they first started forming shortly after they were created by SB 420 in 2004. Between police undermining them, municipalities banning them and the feds raiding them and imprisoning their operators, it is amazing that so many continue to operate.
As a collective operator and founder and Board Member of Americans for Safe Access, Don Duncan is an experienced hand at both the intricacies of operating a collective and the minefield of laws, regulations and bans enacted by local and state officials. For such a mild mannered individual, Don has inspired both adulation and damnation from the marijuana community, but no one can deny the experience and expertise he has amassed from years enabling patients to have safe, reliable and local access.
As our featured guest, Don will discuss some of the most vexing issues facing collectives including confusing regulations, malicious bans, outrageous taxes, frustrating initiatives, cutthroat competition and the never-ending legislative turmoil in Sacramento.
In addition to all of the above, a new twist has been added as collectives are being threatened by exorbitant fines for not complying with Prop. 65 and posting signs warning customers that the product they sell is known by the state of California to cause cancer. Don has been looking into this new problem and has some intriguing findings and advice.
The California Medical Association gave a major push to California’s Marijuana Organ Transplant Act when it supported ending the practice of removing patients from organ transplants due to their use of medicinal marijuana. Our first guest is one of the principle activists behind this act – Yami Bolanos. Denied a transplant because of her marijuana use, Yami fought back. Learn about her historic battle to secure the right to receive organ transplants for medical marijuana patients and what this historic legislation will do.
