    Episode 44 - NJ, NY, and... ND? And Brian "Box" Brown joins us for Meet the Marijuana Press

    NYTimes Bestselling author Brian "Box" Browns joins us this week for a new "Meet the Marijuana Press" segment to talk about his latest book and his new comic strip, Legalization Nation. In our opening segment, we talk about the what's next for New Jersey now that the legalization bills are signed, why Gov. Cuomo is weak and why some national advocacy organizations support for his amended proposals are even weaker, and did you know that North Dakota is the cooler of the Dakotas? And that means two things! And then we look at the letter the Cannabis Regulatory Association sent to Congress outlining their national agenda and we compare it the priorities Project SAM laid out last month. 
    We’ll be discussing all this and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business.

    Episode 43 - President Biden Said What?

    This week we talk about President Biden's comments at the Milwaukee Town Hall. Is this the moment the movement to end the drug war has been working for?
    And then we take a look at the last stalling tactics from South Dakota's Gov. Kristi Noem as she once again ignores the will of her state's voters, this time on medical marijuana. 
    Finally this week, we have another edition of "Meet the Marijuana Press", this time with special guest Veronica Irwin, author the SF Weekly story we covered last week entitled, "You're Buying Your Weed Wrong."

    Episode 42 - We're Not In Kansas Anymore

    Episode 42 - We're Not In Kansas Anymore

    This week we look at the State of the States as some unexpected legislatures are moving their legalization bills forward, even as some of the 2020 legalization states stall, or move backwards.  
    And then we turn our attention to Washington, DC, as the cannabis industry gets some new advocates on the block as President Obama’s former HHS Secretary and former Governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius, joins the National Cannabis Roundtable as an honorary co-chair. Meanwhile, the Marijuana Policy Project’s Executive Director Steve Hawkins announces his new org, the United States Cannabis Council.  We look at who's in and who's out of this new industry group.
    And finally, we look at a story in the SF Weekly that argues, "You're Buying Your Weed Wrong." Are they right?
    We’ll be discussing all this and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business!

    Episode 40 - Make Everyday Spencer Boston Day

    This week we look at what happens after legalization, as Arizona opens up for recreational sales faster than any state has before, while across the country in New Jersey the cops continue their marijuana arrests like nothing’s changed.
    And then we take a look at the new report in the Daily Beast that the Sinaloa Cartel is already setting up front businesses to take advantage of the newly legal cannabis markets in Mexico, once those rules are finalized. What will this mean for their potential competitors in the legal market? And what does it mean for the cannabis market in the United States?
    We’ll be discussing all this and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business.

    Episode 39 - New POTUS, Who Dis?

    A dozen people with cannabis convictions were part of Trump's last minute pardons and commutations. We look at what it means for our system of Justice when insiders get clemency but thousands of other petitions get ignored.  Then we look back at our predictions for the Trump administration 4 years ago and see what we got right and what we got wrongk about the ex-President and how the cannabis industry fared under his administration.  And finally, we take a look at a recent cross border dispute between the US and Mexico that could threaten the future of anti-drug cooperation between the two countries. 
    We’ll be discussing all this and more on the BEST cannabis podcast in the business!
