CUBANOS IN WISCONSIN BY SILVIO CANTO JR
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.
Join me and my panel as we recap the international friendly between the USA & Colombia as the match will be played at the Craven Cottage which is the home of Fulham Football Club of the Championship League of England.

Topics covered include Mixx's mustache, the Green(er) Movement, the Beautiful Beast that is Jermaine Jones, and why the heck the USA loves to concede so many goals in the final minutes.
Today we are going to look at the news of the week with a special guest host who is a former Christian and now professes to be an atheist.
Our guest host is Karl Kemerait. Here's a little bit more about Karl, from Karl :)
I grew up in Connecticut, spent 10 years in the Navy. For the geeks out here I spent 1 year on board the USS Enterprise (the Aircraft carrier, NOT the Starship). I attended Gallaudet College in Washington D.C. where I majored in Interpreting (sign language) . I am married with 3 children, my wife is from Colombia and I have been an atheist for roughly the last 20 years. Prior to that I was a born-again Christian for almost 25 years were I spent my time teaching and with apologetics, evangelizing mostly people from various Western cults such as Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. During my time as a Christian I attended Gathering of Believers in Maryland had an opportunity to meet with Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ, and also Scott Ross who was the DJ on one of the first Christian "Rock" Radio stations in the country. I am self-employed and work as a computer programmer. For hobbies I enjoy building bird houses, playing tennis, trying to fix-up my '78 Fiat spider convertible and am preparing to take up the cello, even though it terrifies me since I have no sense of timing or rhythm!
Enjoy the show!
