Of all communities that would benefit from regular cannabis use is our senior citizens. Robert Platshorn, founder of the senior citizen outreach program The Silver Tour and of HBO’s Black Tuna diaries fame, is the first featured guest.
In Florida are lots and lots and lots of senior citizens and their vote will be crucial in getting the mmj initiative on the November 2014 Florida ballot passed. Getting senior citizens to connect the benefits to their health from marijuana use with a yes vote on Florida’s mmj initiative is crucial. Robert will explain how they are going to do that.
Obtaining a medical marijuana recommendation to use marijuana is now legal in 22 states and the District of Columbia.

A private non-profit foundation, they are taking the company public so big changes are on the way and Paul Stanford, founder and President, will be on hand to give you this exciting information from the largest provider of medical marijuana recommendations in the nation.
Join us this Sunday at 4pm as we talk to the Vice-president of Medical Cannabis Advocates of Alabama, Sharon White. Sharon, formally with AMMJC, has been a patient's rights advocate for four years and has been at the front lines of this controversial issue. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have passed medical marijuana laws legalizing the use and production of Medical marijuana for qualifying patients. It is time for the lawmakers to let the people vote and decide what medicine they use to treat their illnesses. We will also have progressive news you can use, and the most important thing-You.

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.
The Marijuana Policy Project has sponsored more successful medical marijuana and legalization initiatives than any other organization in the U.S.A. In 2016 they will be involved with legalization initiatives in Arizona, California, Maine and Nevada. Our first guest is Morgan Fox, Communications Manager for MPP providing insights into the planning and preparations being made in 2015 to insure the success of these marijuana legalization initiatives. With a successful track record at the ballot box unmatched by any other organization, Mr. Fox will lay out the plans for success and most importantly how you can participate with MPP to make the world safe for marijuana.
20 miles from the sprawling 29 Palms Marine Base and just 15 miles from the renowned Joshua Tree National Park, sits Yucca Valley a small desert town of 20,000. The town had “tolerated” one medical marijuana dispensary for three years but forced it to close in 2014. Our second guest is Jason Elassner who headed the successful campaign to place an initiative before voters allowing dispensaries to open. Having collected enough signatures to require a special election, Jason will divulge the backroom deals and expose the small town intrigues that are changing the political landscape.
