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.
The true believers in medical marijuana think it can cure any disease or at least make it a lot better. Total skeptics say the effects are all simply a result of the placebo effect. What is the middle ground?

Talking about marijuana with your doctor and an update on the multiple marijuana bills making their way through California’ state legislature are the topics of conversation with the guests on this podcast of Marijuana Compassion and Common at blogtalkradio.com/marijuananews.
Many patients want to let their doctor’s know about their marijuana use but are nervous about doing so, but it is important that your doctor’s know all the medications you are taking. Our first guest, Dr. Larry Bedard, an Emergency Room Physician and former President of both the American College of Emergency Physicians and the Marin Medical Society, realizes that this can be a touchy subject, but gives some tips on how best to broach the subject with your doctor.
There is a virtual avalanche of marijuana bills in the California State Legislature, the vast majority of them dealing with medical marijuana. As one of a handful of lobbyists in Sacramento for medical marijuana patients, Don Duncan, board member and co-founder of Americans for Safe Access, is one of the most knowledgeable persons on just what is going on in the state legislature and will give us an insider view.
The consequence of marijuana legalization can be a disaster for medical marijuana patients and the power of targeted voter contact as a mechanism to win elections for marijuana initiatives are the subjects of this episode of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
Washington passed a marijuana legalization measure in 2012 with provisions protecting medical marijuana patients but legislators are folding patients into the legalization with such possible negative consequences of no longer being able to grow their own medicine and being forced to pay the same exorbitant taxes as recreational users. Kari Boiter, Washington State Coordinator for Americans for Safe Access explains how the marijuana legalization initiative has impacted medical marijuana patients and how patients are fighting back to preserve their rights under Washington's exisiting medical marijuana laws.
Yucca Valley. a small California desert town in San Bernardino County, is vying to become the first muncipality in what is the largest county in the United States to allow for the sale of medical marijuana.

Mr. Lee will also delve into the lawsuit Project CBD has filed to strike down Medical Marijuana Inc.’s $100 million lawsuit.
Alice O’Leary-Randall is a senior spokesperson for the medical marijuana movement. In 1976 her late husband, Robert C. Randall, became the first person in the U.S. to legally receive medical marijuana. In 1978 Alice and her husband Robert were instrumental in the passage of the first ever medical marijuana law when New Mexico legislature passed a law recognizing marijuana’s medical value and establishing a statewide program of controlled, legal access to the drug for patients with glaucoma and cancer chemotherapy.
As the show’s second guest, Ms. O’Leary Randal will discuss how New Mexico’s law came into being, why it faltered and the beginnings of the modern day medical marijuana movement which began when they co-founded the Alliance for Cannabis Therapeutics (ACT), the first non-profit organization dedicated solely to resolving the medical marijuana issue and drafted national legislation that was introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives.
A candid look at the surprising gains marijuana law reform has made in the U.S. Congress plus an insider’s look as Upland medical marijuana patients refuse to let the city get away with skullduggery are found on the latest installment of Marijuana Compassion and Common Sense.
Veterans getting medical marijuana recommendations, preventing the DEA from interfering in a state’s medical marijuana laws and protecting states with marijuana legalization laws have all made major progress in the U.S. Congress.
Dan Riffle, Director of Federal Policies for the Marijuana Policy Project, will discuss these newest and astonishing developments, tracing their history, explaining what they will do, why progress is being made and the unexpected switch by some Representatives and Senators from opposing marijuana law reform to supporting it.
When Upland residents submitted an initiative petition with enough signatures to require a special election on allowing medical marijuana dispensaries to operate, the Upland City Council refused to hold a special election and put it off until 2016. Although the refusal by the city to hold a special election is tied up in court, the backers of the initiative are not going to wait for the slower-than-molasses court challenges to decide the issue.
They have filed a new initiative that will overcome the problems that are being challenged in court. Craig Beresh, one of the initiative proponents, will explain how the Upland City Council was able to derail the original initiative and how the new initiative differs from the old one and why this time they are very confident of success.
