Darbi's out of town this week, so Samuel Walter, a marijuana legalization advocate living in Colorado, will fill in as cohost for this evening's conversation. We'll be discussing the pros of legalizing marijuana, the history of its legality, and what we've learned from Colorado and Washington.
We the people, have a clear understanding that we must obey the law. No doubt about it. We do not advocate breaking the law. However, we do insist on the opportunity to change the laws if they do not fit our public opinion as a majority. Thank goodness that we are in a country where our fore fathers have provided us with the necessary tools to do so. We live in a land where young men and women in uniform, defend our pursuit of happiness by laying their lives on the line over seas and domestically. Where a tribune of law is supposed to be fair and just to all of its citizens.
This radio station is dedicated to actively engage listeners and help raise awareness about the unjust laws in Virginia surrounding Marijuana.
We are the people. We are for the people and we are aware that if we can unite, we can make a difference.
ABOVE THE IGNORANCE.
A solution for a BROKEN ECONOMY. A STAND FOR THE RIGHTS of the American people. A voice for those oppressed by those who wear badges. This station is fueled by ENLIGHTED conciousness and PROTECTED by the 1st Amendment.
We are determined to spread the word and unite with those who already know it. The negative stigma that has been placed on Marijuana far surpasses Politics and is an infringement on the basic rights of human beings.
Are roses illegal? No that's silly, right? It's a plant. Why would it be illegal?
I know that if we unite, we are many. Many more than them.
We will lead the way, with peace and non judgement. Something that our law enforcement counter parts have neglected us for ages.
STOP THE OPRESSION TODAY.
those who STAND FOR NOTHING, are sure to FALL FOR ANYTHING.
ROLL UP, TUNE IN, PEACE OUT.
The NAACP's California Branch allegedly has come out in favor of legalizing marijuana although this has not been interdependently verified by Black Talk Radio.
If true, it is not a far leap for the California branch to advocate for marijuana legalization considering the state has already legalized medicinal marijuana.
Considering how the drug war targets African American communities, this is a conversation long over due and one that the NAA
David Loftus will discuss Measure 80, the Oregon Cannabis Tax Act, which will allow broader personal use of marijuana and provide for its taxation by the state. Small amounts of pot are legal in 13 states and many other counties and towns across the U.S., but possession is still a federal offense. Is it time to change marijuana laws?

Marijuana legalization measures have been a mixed bag of good and bad for medical marijuana patients. With California most likely to have a legalization initiative on the ballot in 2016, legalization proponents want to work with medical marijuana patients to ensure that their rights are protected under any marijuana legalization initiatives that are on the ballot.
Dale Sky Jones is Director of the Coalition for Cannabis Policy Reform, a California based nonpartisan organization dedicated to ending marijuana prohibition through ballot initiatives, legislative collaboration and public education campaigns. As the shows first guest, Ms. Jones will provide information on the series of roundtable discussions being held in Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego and Santa Ana on Jan. 30 and 31. Information on prospects for the 2016 initiatives and how patients can work together to make sure they do not have a negative impact is at the center of these community forums.
Students for Sensible Drug Policy at the University of California at Irvine are sponsoring a symposium on Saturday, Feb. 21 that will bring together experts from the legal, political, and judicial arenas, as well as civil rights activists, harm reduction workers, entrepreneurs, and full-time reform workers for an in-depth look at how U.S. drug policies have affected society, and what lies ahead on the horizon.
The show’s second guest is Lauren Ayn Mendelsohn, coordinator for SSDP at UCI who is also a J.D. Candidate, 2016. She will explain the ins and outs of this important symposium and reveal the names of the invited speakers and participants. Marijuana law reform is a key component of the reform process and Ms. Mendelsohn will provide information on how this is incorporated into the symposium’s presentations.
Laprill O’Brien is a registered medical marijuana patient who has beat cancer twice and suffers from manic bipolar disorder. On the morning of July 7, 2014 her home in Diamond Bar was raided by police because they were growing marijuana. Ms. O’Brien was held in jail for five days and her children were taken by CPS.
Although they have gotten their children back, she and her husband, Rick Gromoll have been charged with illegal cultivation with their next court date set for April 23 in Pomona. As the show’s first guests, Laprill and Rick will reveal the horrors that happened that day, how it has affected their family and how their court case is proceeding.
Wondering whether the VA directive stating veterans who use medicinal marijuana should not be kick out of their pain management programs is being implemented? Then meet Ken Whitemire, a veteran receiving services from the Loma Linda VA Hospital for chronic pain related to service connected injuries to his back and neck. He had been kicked out of his pain management program because of his use of medicinal marijuana.
On Monday, March 30 he went back to his pain management doctor with the new directive in hand and became the first medical marijuana veteran to be reinstated into a pain management program as a result of the new directive. What happened when Ken confronted his VA doctor is remarkable, astounding and ever so invigorating.

On the morning of July 7, 2014, eleven police cars screeched to a halt in front of her home in Diamond Bar with police swarming over her home because they had a tip that they were growing marijuana. Her children abducted by CPS, Ms. O’Brien was held in jail for five days before being released with no charges being filed at the time.

As an interesting aside, Ken lives in Slab City, a bohemian encampment on the east side of California’s Salton Sea. In addition to his story of success at the VA, he will be providing us with the low-down on this unusual bit of Americana.
With over 75% approval, voters in the Vallejo California, population around 120,000, enacted Measure C in 2011 which established a tax of 10% on medical marijuana products. Although it would seem obvious that voters would not approve a tax for businesses that they thought shouldn’t be allowed to operate, the Vallejo City Council thought the voters were too stupid to understand the issue and enacted a moratorium on medical marijuana businesses in 2013.
In February, several of the operating medical marijuana dispensaries attempted to pay almost $50,000 in taxes but were turned away with a city employee telling them that “As of January 13, 2015, the City of Vallejo City Council directed city staff to no longer accept medical marijuana monthly tax returns or any tax payments related to medical marijuana.”
Attorney James Anthony represents the 11 medical marijuana dispensaries that were operating before enactment of the 2013 moratorium. As the show’s first guest, Mr. Anthony will explain how it came to pass that the city is refusing to collect an estimated $5 million in annual taxes and what the collectives will do to force them to take their money.
Combining content and lessons learned from previous attempts to place a marijuana legalization initiative on the California ballot, the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR) was started by Americans for Policy Reform as an open-source, grassroots project. The goal was to bring everyone together on the "same page" for the next legalization initiative.
John Lee is one of the chief organizers of MCLR and as the show’s second guest will explain the new initiative and how they are committed to drafting and passing an initiative that reflects the will of people.
