    Initiatives to Force Change

    in Politics

    How can you get changes to existing law in your local Government?

    Twenty four States have the Referendum and Initiative Process that puts power in The People’s hands.

    If your State does not have it perhaps you should try to get it.

    In any event those who now have this option should use it.

    Rob Taylor joins us tonight to tell us about what Initiatives and Referendums are and how effective they can be.

    Then a few thoughts from the Host on who our enemies are.

    Life for MJ Prisoner Speaks Out & Don Duncan On Failure of MMJ Initiatives

    in News

    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.
