"Right. Right. And even here in Pasadena. So the question really begs is what has that done to our culture? What has it done to young people? What is under addiction or is it under mental health? Was it done for cannabis as medication? And all those things are things we're interested in at the UCLA cannabis research initiative, which we started in 2017 as a direct response to try and study these things. So I boiled it down to the main themes I want people to know about cannabis. Is that number one? Cannabis is a spectacular plan. And inside this plant are well over 80 different kinds of compounds called cannabinoids. Have all sorts of interesting effects on our body and our brain and our mind. That's the real thing. It's however therapeutically potential. It's not yet fully realized as medicine. And I think that's where we miss it. And I wish I could say, with confidence, this is what I would recommend for sleep or for pain or for depression or anxiety or just a good time. But we're not there yet. So that's number one. So it's an incredibly potent and spectacularly interesting plant. But we don't yet have therapeutic medicines. I think that can be routinely accepted as medicines from Doc. We have a few, but not a lot. Number two, the risk of cannabis use disorder or cannabis addiction is very, very real. It's not zero. Now, compared to smoking, and better meaning and cocaine. Yes, the risk is lower. But still, we know that approximately 9% of people who start using cannabis will develop a cannabis use disorder. That means 9 out of a hundred people who start using are going to develop problems in their life from cannabis addiction. I think that's where we've missed the boat where people are like, well, what is cannabis addiction look like? They don't die from overdose. They don't commit crimes. We see it under a spectacular through the years. But they don't function well. They don't work. They don't finish school. They sit around, they're depressed, they don't sleep well, their health isn't good. And I think people are shocked to hear that cannabis addiction is one of the top addictions that people enter drug rehabilitations for. Their lives have really been screwed up. So we know that what percentage of California right now meet criteria for cannabis addiction. It's probably on the order of about two, 3%. What percent use cannabis somewhere on the order of 30, 40%? I want to say to the story it's the same that it is for tobacco and cocaine is out for young people. This is not a young person's product. That's where I think I'm concerned about most. We've accelerated and made it seem like this is a product for teenagers and young people, and it's okay. It is not. In fact, instead of California, you got to be 21 to buy. But when was the last time you heard any public health initiatives or promotions about keeping cannabis out of young people? Underage cannabis use. It's not even a thing. Underaged tobacco underage drinking absolutely, but under aged cannabis? Yes. That's my point. Yeah. I heard that. It's nothing burger. Right, but I think to that end though, I think the state is starting to do more. California department public health, department of Canada's control are very concerned about these issues. But we need to definitely do more in terms of really minimizing the glamorous if you will to say this is great for sleep. This is better than tobacco. This is not without harm. That's number two. So again, cannabis, as a medicine, we're not quite ready. Cannabis does have addictive potential for sure. And thirdly, I would argue that cannabis and its impact on just what are we doing as a society in terms of making our lives better? So the whole proposition was geared for social equity. It was to allow persons of color to get businesses to own cannabis dispensaries. That's number one. Number two, it was supposed to eliminate misdemeanors and felonies for cannabis possessions. How well we really done that? I think I'm an addiction psychiatrist and I'm not a sociologist or a health services researcher. But what we look at is kind of here. You think about all the dispensaries that are open out there? How many are really owned by persons of colors? People who disproportionately did not get a chance to get into the business. It's not many. And there was an article in the LA times just last Sunday. I read it. Talking about how wait a minute, what about the communities that were disproportionately damaged by addiction, racism, lack of equality? And they're not getting a chance to get cannabis license either to grow, so distribute market or sell. I think that same article was saying those who have been trying to get their permits and everything. The bar is so high that they're being undercut by the illegal business and dealing with it. And so as anything else it's a very complicated story here in California where we know that I think second quarter, the revenue was somewhere I want to say two, $3 billion brought in something like that. That's just revenue. So yes, we're getting a lot of taxes on it. But the unregulated market is still thriving. Yeah. It's going wild. You hear a lot of cannabis dispensaries and manufacturers talking about taxation really limiting their ability to do their job well..

"Suddenly wanted suddenly wanted my Email address before permission to look at the vaccine totals. Oh, Jesus. That was popular, so they want to get something out of it. I'm sure they're going to sell it. I'm going to get 30 pieces of junk mail for the end of the show. All right. So here we go. Oh, Star daily tracker. You can't let it go. Yeah, make the sacrifice. But it raises email. That was a good idea. All right, one holding company man, I got to do the do Sometimes I do that to five poopy pants said, Uh, Let your online name alright. California has dropped to 41st place We're getting for their big diaper. We've looked down the 41st, right? Oh, no, that's slippage. Yeah, we were up, asshole. I is 29th. A few days ago. Yes, have the numbers for getting worse 4,200,000 vaccinations, but it's 62%. So that would mean you know, there's a well over six million vaccines. Well over two million are still sitting on the shelf. We can't see. We can't seem to catch up. It's just they're They're They're sending us more vaccines and are Distribution rate is actually falling. Look, No. This your vaccine number. Four million. 199,626 to be exact. Okay. Must be. I'm looking at the Sacramento Bee. But I think their trackers a day behind and they only have 3.1 million vaccinated California. Yeah, Every newspaper's got a different track. But I did hear that Give the exciting news vaccinations have now exceeded the number of confirmed covert cases in California. How's that? Yeah, well, if only 0.3 million is that number only the people who got the virus had gotten the vaccine first, uh, two different groups so they have vaccinated 8% of the population. Only 1.7% have gotten two doses. Out of everybody who lives in the state, and they are up to 160,000 shots a day now. But it's still really slow. As you know, this is just such Yeah, Here's the updated story in the second. You're right. The 4,199,626 vaccinations when they get caught up. They all have the same numbers because they're all using the CDC numbers right? There's no there's no special. So this comes from the California Department. Public health, But that's probably who gives the CDC the number? Yes. Yeah. So Friday became the first day to clear 200,000 shots and into the tally. Mm. Well. California still struggles with data reporting wait, just struggling with everything right that schools are closed when they're open, and a lot of other places. Theme parks are closed. When they're opening a lot of other places. The cases are down 60%. That doesn't seem to matter. We got over two million vaccines sitting in warehouses. That never reached anybody's arm. It's just every day is the same story and people go are I don't know what what? Why would you recall the governor? I don't know. Why would you Now. Here's the fascinating story from India. What hasn't he screwed up India just a few months ago, like California in L. A county was inundated with the coronavirus. Uh, it says here, according to this story, who ran this was this The Washington Post? That Back in November. Large public hospital, where one of the people they interviewed works was full of covert 19 patients. Three months later, the situation's unrecognizable the number of coronavirus patients of the hospital can be counted on one hand. Out of 200 ventilators on the tour in use. Hospitals treating covert 19 patients around the country report similar experiences. The retreat of the coronavirus in India, the world's second most populous nation is a mystery. Just months ago, India was adding 100,000 cases a day more than any other country. But on Tuesday just 8635 cases in the whole country. That's about the number recorded the same day by New York State with a population is only 2% is less than 2% of India's. That's weird. It just said well disappeared. The theory. Is that the virus is finding it harder to spread because a significant proportion of the population least in the city's has already been infected. Now India has a much younger population than we do so it's possible that people got the virus in India and didn't even know it. But that gave him a level of immunity with the virus could not infiltrate a duel. They do have masks and some indoor settings and in the large cities but in many parts of the country. There's nobody masked on the streets. No restaurants, balls and markets are bustling, right? The results of a nationwide antibody survey of 28,000 people indicated that more than one in five people in India about 270 million people had been exposed to the virus as of early January. And in major cities, the infection rates are running even higher. In in Delhi. Study of 28,000 people found 56% had Corona virus antibodies. Wow. You wouldn't think happened in Mumbai in another country of the city. There the city's air very crowded in congested. That's exactly true. I mean, that place was ever destined to have coronavirus run right through it. They're wondering if it's the younger population and the fact that they may have some sort of different immune system. Boy. How do I put this politely? You know if you go to India supposed to get shots But it could be the people there have um or immune to dance. It's built up. They have a lot of Strange diseases really in all of Asia and Africa that Americans never run into. I mean, I remember going to Africa to take six shots. Six. My family? Yeah. When I went to Thailand, I only took like, three. Yeah, so they have their They have their own set of illnesses that we have no experience with. So maybe they've got an immune system that resulted in a population with the more stealthy immune system or healthy and more Yeah, because they think there is some immunological factor. They still haven't been able to narrow down. But well, they they think that there's there's the people get asymptomatic. Reactions to the virus must have something in their immune system that makes them more resilient to it like we're just we're not all created equal with immune systems, either the different Countries were just different people within the same country. Which is why there's such a wide variety of reactions, right say the worst thing to have is an overactive immune system, which, after it gets finished fighting the virus, then starts fighting the rest of your body, and that's what kills a lot of these people. Called the site of King Storm and started keen's doing right starts trashing all your lung tissues, and those of the people end up on ventilators and then dying. It's not like directly from the virus. It's Zsa byproduct of the attack its soldiers shooting their own side. Yes, I remember that story. That's true. Yeah. Now India's only vaccinated four million people would you know they have a huge population. You would think the east side of that way would be would be approaching. This situation soon, right? Some sort of herd immunity level because there's so many people infected. Yes, because they think three times as many people In L, A county and in the in the U. S have actually gotten the virus. Three times, then have been reported with most people, either getting it mild symptoms. They never bothered to go get an official test because that was a pain in the ass much of the time, or they didn't notice that had it. She going to East away? We're obviously the rates of spread is very high. Now multiply that by three. At some point how many people are left? So maybe maybe maybe This is the most optimistic look, you know the numbers will just suddenly plummet. On their plummeting pretty fast in California were down 61%.

"Moments ago, saying impeachment will make it easier to purge Trump from the Republican Party. The New York Times, citing people familiar with the matter when it reported that the Kentucky Republican is pleased and approves with the Democrats, latest impeachment efforts. They also claim McConnell has told his associates that he believes President Trump has committed impeachable offenses for his role in last week's violence at the Capitol. And again the California Department public Health confirming today that the Greater Sacramento region will be exiting the stay at home order can't come soon enough for supervisor Suck no supervisors who Frost, who was one of the organizers of an open Cal now conference just this past weekend. One thing we learned is that there is some devastating mental, spiritually physical and economic impact from the lockdown. I like to tell people there's more than one way to die than co bit Cove. It's not the only way to die, and so we have to think about the overall health of our communities. We also learned a lot about The economic impact and why the state may not be worried about the economics. Because really, when the economist came on, and we're gonna be posting these panel discussions online, we're breaking down those lectures. And we're gonna have those at reopened Cal now dot com as soon as we can get him on their butt. Economists and the experts and business Dr Justin Adams from Davis and John Cabot check from National Federation of Independent Businesses. What we learned from them is that the economy is coming along and things were going great. The only problem is it's It's the large businesses and online businesses that are doing great. It's the small little guy that's being left behind. A little mom and pop restaurants and small businesses that are deemed non essential that are being shut down that are being left behind. Frost acknowledged keeping people safe is a priority. But she says she's very focused on keeping the free economy afloat as well. There's something really important, kitty that and that probably the biggest reason I got involved in this aside from saving life with American independence. Without capitalism. We can't be free. And so if we kill capitalism, what what will happen? So I think it's really important for us to Think about if you're killing business on one side and drawing down trillions of dollars from the federal government to give to people who can't get hoping their business At some point, someone's gonna have to pay that money back if you cut off revenues, who's going to do that? The money won't keep flowing so I think it's important for us to find treatments on and save lives and also To consider all the impacts of the lockdown and not to mention our Children. There are statistics around the impact on this generation of Children. This isolation is you're gonna have an impact on that generation and being out of school for a year. And again that is Sacramento District four supervisor Sue Frost. And their whole conversation is that kpk dot com The afternoon news with Kitty O'Neil and just to reiterate the greater Second region is exiting the stay at home order. So what? That doesn't put us back into the purple tear, obviously still some restrictions, but not his owner, says the state home order. So you can check online for more that, innit?
