    Marty Mitchell On The Rise Of Weed To The Political Mainstream

    Marty Mitchell On The Rise Of Weed To The Political Mainstream

    In American political life, cannabis has recently gone from a somewhat taboo topic to a key issue at the center of many politicians’ platforms. In Congress, weed legalization is now regularly debated on both sides of the aisle, with Republicans and Democrats vying to become the party that finally reforms federal cannabis laws. But the topic of weed isn’t just important at the national or even state level, and has crept its way into local politics as well. No one knows that better than Martin Mitchell, who last year won a seat on the city council of Laurel, Md. by campaigning on a pro-pot platform. A longtime advocate for weed reform, Mitchell also serves as the president of the Prince George’s County Young Democrats and of the Young Democrats of Maryland.In Episode 3 of The Sesh, host Kevin Lance Murray sat down with Mitchell to ask why he’s putting cannabis front and center, and how weed turned into a mainstream topic – even in the most conservative political circles. Mitchell also weighed in on Maryland’s upcoming referendum on legalizing recreational cannabis, explaining why he thinks it will likely pass, and what that could mean for the state’s existing medical weed industry.This episode of The Sesh is brought to you by Takoma Wellness Center (https://outlawreport.us5.list-manage.com/track/click?u=f280aef2761147e01e7645890&id=07b390c493&e=e8c63455c8), D.C.’s longest-running medical dispensary, and Dreamy DC (dreamydc.com), the District’s fast, convenient bud delivery service. Free and independent cannabis journalism like The Outlaw Report (https://outlawreport.com) is crucial to keep the DMV’s weed community informed.

    The Sesh, Ep. 2: Chanda Macias On What It Takes To Become An ‘OG’ Of Medical Weed

    The Sesh, Ep. 2: Chanda Macias On What It Takes To Become An ‘OG’ Of Medical Weed

    It’s been nearly a decade since D.C. opened its first medical cannabis dispensary. Since then, the District’s medical cannabis industry has gone through numerous ups and downs: from drastic regulatory changes to the rise of a parallel weed “gifting” economy that is increasingly cutting into its bottom line. And that’s not to mention regular interference from Congress, which continues to block District officials from regulating pot as they see fit. As the founder of National Holistic Healing Center, one of the first medical dispensaries to open in the District, Dr. Chanda Macias knows what it takes to stay afloat in the often treacherous waters of the D.C. cannabis scene. The veteran entrepreneur, biomedical researcher and educator is considered a trailblazer in the field of cannabis and hemp, having launched a number of successful business ventures across several states. In Louisiana, she’s the CEO of Ilera Holistic Healthcare, one of only two companies authorized to process medical cannabis in the state.InEpisode 2, The Sesh host Kevin Lance Murray sat down with Macias to ask how she’s approached building a loyal customer base in the District while navigating the twists and turns of local regulation. He also got deeper into what’s driving her personal success in the weed world.This episode of The Sesh is sponsored by DreamyDC.
