The promise and potential of cannabis become clearer every day. As myth is replaced by science and folklore by evidence, everything we thought we knew about this much maligned plant is up for grabs.
Brave New Weed Podcast is the voice of the post prohibitionist era. Hosted by author Joe Dolce, and co-host Matthew Hendershot, the discussions are guaranteed to be fun, fearless, and informed.
This podcast follows the publication of Dolce’s Brave New Weed: Adventures into the Uncharted World of Cannabis, a book that the New York Times called “a loving rethink of all things marijuana.” Dolce has gathered the most provocative leaders, thinkers and shapers of new world weed to explore the hottest topics of the day. In addition to exploring WeedCulture, WeedScience, WeedHealth, WeedProducts, WeedPolitics, he’ll also include opponents of normalization, so that he can challenge their positions and give them a damn hard time. The primary focus of the podcast is on the uncanny natural healing power of CBD and THC, but topics and stories are expanded as appropriate to capture the cultural zeitgeist of the day.

Episode 93 - Everyone Says They Wants Social Equity So Why Can’t Anyone Get It Right?
Everyone is talking about social justice these days but no one US state is getting it right. The reasons are many and today we’re speaking with Brian Vicente, the lawyer who wrote Colorado’s groundbreaking 2012 legalization laws. For all of their foresight and mastery, those 8 year old laws also made no provision for social justice. In this interview Vicente talks about why that happened, what’s being done now to correct them, and the challenges of creating a regulated industry that is fair and gives opportunity to all, especially those who have been disproportionately harmed by 60 year War on Drugs. The challenges are not what you think.
Vicente is a partner and founding member of the Denver-based law firm of Vicente Sederberg. As a result of Brian’s collaborative efforts with activists and strategists, Colorado became the first state to make the possession, use, and regulated distribution of marijuana legal for adults. Vicente has assisted the government of Uruguay with adopting a fully regulated adult marijuana market and he serves as a formal advisor on marijuana policy to local, state, and national governments. He also serves as chair of the Committee for Responsible Regulation.
