"Hi Ruin welcome to a very special edition of we'd talk now I'm Jimmy Young the founder of cannabis media and I'm in the founder of cannabis dot net and we are very happy to be joined by Bruce Barkat whose the editor of lethally DOT com. He's also the author of a very popular book called lead the People Bruce Thank you so much for joining us tonight out in the great northwest of Washington. State House it. How is it out there? is fantastic. Thanks for having me guys. Welcome to my mobile office This is working in the pandemic. I- emergency came up with my kids today. So I am I'm set a ready to go got good strong, WIFI going and it's a beautiful day out here. It's must be in the mid seventies and sunny. So we're all we're all good. Maybe the place to be in the United States with all the different humidity and heat that's been plaguing the United States during this era of climate change. But let's let's jump right into the cannabis conversation. First of all I wanNA give you Kudos I have this philosophy in policy that I only interview authors if I read their books so I got your book I read it and I couldn't put it down I really enjoyed it and and what's amazing to me about that book Bruce Is it was written five years ago. Have we made some progress in five years or what? We have made amazing progress. A funny thing is it came out. Out Almost, eight years since I started it and when I started the book, this was twenty, early, two, thousand, thirteen and. Things were still very shaky. I mean Colorado and Washington State had just passed. Don't use legalization and we weren't even sure if that was going to be happening if. Ads were going to allow the states to roll this out and try it fortunately they did it's been a wild success and. Now, we're we're sitting here with eleven states with legal recreational cannabis plus Washington DC We're looking at possibly adding a few more This fall was November election, and honestly when I started writing that book, one of the reasons I wrote the book was I. was. I really. Didn't have a dog in the hunt like I. I was very much on the line in terms of voting for legalization, and when we passed the measure as a writer, I was really curious to see what happens like was this going to be something? We're very proud of in twenty years or was this sort of going to be an embarrassing flop and? fortunately, it's been not a flop at all and I'm sitting here. Now you know an editor. and very proud to be a part of this this change in history. You brought it up, Bruce that November the election, where do you stay in again, I'll throw it out there your prediction on federal legalization. Interesting points brought up today by our by Senator Markey on a show saying if the Democrats get the House and the Senate bill legalize even if Biden tries to veto, give me your prediction on federal legalisation..

"One World Trade Center in Manhattan this is the New Yorker Radio Hour co-production New Yorker and WNYC studios welcome to the New Yorker Radio Hour. I'm David Ramnik. Look at this little tent. It's like for baby growers propagation I yeah and then there's like a lot of paraphenalia. It's a Tuesday morning in the summer in Vermont and our contributor sue halpern halpern is checking out supplies at the gardening shop Green State Gardner so show US around. I know there's a lot of fertilizer looking at something uncalled the magic bubble washing machine not really for washing clothing. You know how it's marketed. Oh Oh wow okay what is it for that is for essentially knocking the tricalm's off of the flowers in order to make Hash. I don't even know what any of that meets. Vermont is. One of eleven states where it's legal to get high and thirty three states allow medical marijuana nationally sixty percent of Americans Americans support legalization and the pace of change on this issue is incredible so this week my colleagues and I want to dig in and understand the ramifications of the sea change in American Life Sue Halpern will show us how Vermont's unique. Diy Approach to pot works and talk with Jilani Cobb about how the legalisation movement it is trying to undo decades of damage that the war on drugs has done to communities of color to explain how this movement accelerated so quickly. I wanted to start with Bruce Barkat his book weed the people that's weed. The people is about how the state of Washington Colorado. I legalized recreational national use. I think you have to say that thirty years ago. If you had told me that we'd see the day when marijuana was was legal and maybe on the way toward national legalization I wouldn't have I wouldn't have believed how did public opinion change so quickly on this. I after agree with you thirty years ago. There's no way I would have believed this would change. I think that it changed. It changed gradually. I think you know the modern era really began with the AIDS crisis in San Francisco in the nineteen eighties when gay men were suffering from wasting disease was one of the manifestations of aids they couldn't eat. They couldn't keep food down and cannabis stimulates appetite. You get the munchies and quells nausea so people there started up marijuana buyer's clubs and eventually Eh San Francisco past legalization for medical use in ninety six California past medical use statewide and other states. It's followed suit and then I think you know what that medical legalization did was kind of an act a kind of pilot project where different states stuck a toe in the the water in the walls of civilization didn't crumble and then that led to the first adult use legalisation votes in two thousand twelve in Colorado and Washington and and I was skeptical about it but it actually it worked in my own state in my own community for the first time in history cannabis reform form is going to be an issue in the twenty twenty election nearly all the Democratic Front runners support legalization. How did this become such a big deal in the race and why is it such a big deal? I'm kind of shocked. actually at how many Democratic candidates have essentially just turned and embrace legalization the only person who really has reservations is Joe Biden right and in the previous election. The only person who was four legalization was Bernie Sanders. There's and essentially it is in the numbers every poll that comes out now about they'll use legalization hits sixty sixty five percents sixty eight percent support and its support. That's not read. It's not blue. It's across the board. This is an issue that it doesn't divide down party lines but Democrats see it as a way to essentially embrace younger folks because the breakdown in support art is very much generational oldest demographic does not like it is not in favor of it. The youngest demographic is absolutely in favor of it well Bernie Sanders though has young supporters but he's not a young guy. Neither Elizabeth Warren is either. What does it say Biden that he's not supporting legalization? The the thing `bout I mean Biden was tortuously. one of the people who was pushing the crime bill back in the nineties the other element that's come into play with this is our over incarceration crisis and are growing national awareness of racial disparities in law enforcement and really there is there's one book the is like the silent spring of this movement and of cannabis legalisation and it's Michelle Alexander's the new Jim Crow that really opened up a lot of people's eyes and and I I I wish frankly Joe Biden would read it now. What about the Republicans John Bainer Former Speaker John Bainer is on the board of one of the country's largest largest cannabis corporations? Why is this being an issue for the Republicans? It's it's it's the weirdest thing I mean Jeff. Sessions was sort of the last the last of the great drug warriors and even even members of his party sort of were were baffled by why he rode that Hobbyhorse of of marijuana prohibition so hard it was like an obsession with him you know in his his successor really doesn't doesn't give a darn about about cannabis so yeah. I don't know it's it's it. We've seen this with a number of politicians where once they're out of office all of a sudden they're running join the new legal cannabis industry. John Bainer was sort of the leader in in in that sense but I think you'll see a lot more those folks. It's coming into the cinistry because it's it is booming. Now you were living in Seattle when the State of Washington voted to legalize marijuana but you originally weren't supportive it. What ended up changing your mind on this? I was it was back in November twenty twelve and it was a dinner with friends. We were all discussing who we were going to vote for and we were going down the ballot and marijuana legalization was on our on our ballot in Washington state and I said look you know I'm I'm really kind of on the fence leaning no on this. I don't like pot. It's not my thing I worry about my kids and a good friend of mine actually was a lawyer at the time for the ACLU. The was behind the the effort in Washington state she she said she turned on me and she practically poked me in the chassis she said just you know what nobody gives a shit about whether you like or don't like pot this is not about you. This is this is about you know hundreds of thousands of people mostly people of color being thrown into jail for something. That's really less harmful than alcohol you you saw Washington legalized. Marijuana and eleven states have now done the same they've joined Washington which states have done this really well and have any state senate poorly poorly. I think that Washington Colorado did it. Well under the circumstances they were first. They were the pioneers and so they are laws. Were not perfect. I think the better laws that are coming on now. There's a lot of is on Illinois. The Law Illinois is like six hundred fifteen pages as long as it's insane but there are a lot of provisions written into that law that weren't in other states that people are are are very hopeful about it it deals with things like expunged of past convictions for marijuana I think it addresses or at least touches on things like workplace discrimination and parental rights so that you know child protective services isn't gonNA come. Take your kids away. If you're using cannabis legally there are a lot of little micro issues that that have emerged since the the big issue of simple legalisation has come out in two thousand twelve what about the business aspect of this California had stars in in its eyes and they had huge problems at turned out with their roll out the officials. They're predicted a billion dollars in tax revenue and ended up with less than half of that then what happened yet part of that is the fact that California's illegal industry is so entrenched in so enormous and it's it gets by not just with feeding its own state. I mean it it produces seven times as much cannabis as has California residents consume so it's going into the rest of the country and then the regulations in California were pretty tough and so it made it pretty difficult and very expensive for folks to move from the illegal space into a legal space to get their get their licenses and get security ready and it took a lot of money investment to do that and so they've been having a harder time moving people from the illegal market into the legal legal market. WHO's GonNa make a lot of money off marijuana in last year? I think the marijuana industry was valued at around ten billion dollars and the projections are to go much much much higher than that in the future who the big players in the industry who's making a fortune. Fewer people are making fortunes than you might think actually at at this point. I think that as we go along what we're seeing right now is the larger players coming in our Our investors are coming in large investors coming in quietly beer companies are coming in quietly as well which ones a constellation Pasta Latian brands which is the distributor for Corona Beer they have a significant investment in canopy growth. which is the largest largest Canadian cannabis company? Are we gonNA see multinational marijuana conglomerates. Oh Yeah Yeah it's you know we were seeing Obviously Canada has has full federal legalisation at this point. Germany has full legal medical marijuana. Mexico is coming online soon. The Mexican Supreme Court has declared that the country's prohibition on cannabis is cannot stand and so they're working on establishing a legal system right now we should see in the next year or two to ultimately this will be a global industry. It's just right now. We're still in the phase where in the United States it is very much a state-by-state industry. Those Walzer are very high but those walls will come down now part of what impressed me so much about your book is is that it's it's very shrewd and and fair-minded. You're covering this as a journalist and you're looking at data. You're talking to both sides. It's clear that you come out on the side of legalization but what's the most convincing argument that you found against full legalization..
