    The Marijuana Odyssey of Cheri Sicard

    in News

    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.

    Where is the placebo effect in medical marijuana?

    in Education

    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?

    There needs to be a way or recording when it does not work or when it causes serious side effects. We're not there yet. Until the ##*%$@ schedule 1 listing is removed, we will have to replly on anecdotes.

    Update With Kate Episode 22 The Gates of Hell Adorned with Legal Names

    in Education

    The updates will be an ongoing clarification of the legal name fraud all of humanity has been duped into being a part of and thus, serving all manner of evil and harm in this reality we call "normal". How incredibly ruthless mirrored only in its' simplicity, legal name fraud is the crux, literally, of all man's woes. It is the only thing that separates you from YOU and thus, all of creation. You can serve only one master, the master of life, truth or, the master of death, legal sorcery. The greatest trick the Devil ever played wasn't convincing you that "he" didn't exist, it was convincing YOU that you didn't exist. Legal Name PROVES you don't exist if you worship this fall-se' I.D.-doll thinking it's you or you're I.D./it.....kate

    Should Marijuana Be Legal?

    in Politics

    Tonight on It's Real Talk Radio, the Panel will be discussing Marijuana and if it should legal to smoke. Ever since we can remember, US Citizens have been thriving to have a bill passed making it legal to possess and smoke Marijuana (not just for medical reasons but in general). As we all know, about half of the states in the U.S. have made it legal to smoke Marijuana for medical purposes only. Of course that means you need to make the list of illnesses that would grant you that privilege along with your doctor's approval.

    As of now, without a medical slip, Marijuana is illegal to smoke or even possess in all states excluding Colorado & Washington State which so far are the only 2 U.S. States to legalize the use of Recreational Marijuana. The question we're asking each other and all of our listeners tonight is "Should Recreational Marijuana be legal in all states?"

    This will definitely make for an interesting show, so make sure you tune in (especially you Marijuana smokers). To catch the live show by phone dial 347-838-9540 and dial 1 if you have a question or comment for the hosts; otherwise, continue to hold and listen to the live broadcast.
