The appointments the meetings so they go and borrow money to be able to do that so when they come here. They hope that they can make some money to pay back that death. They also hope to help their families. Some of these women we met with our single MOMS on have left their kids with their parents with their MOMS.

Oh my God. They have such big hearts that they are putting themselves behind this Group of people who just arrived these layoffs that have come from the The Canopy Growth Corporation which which produces cannabis. They say that they had ran into all kinds of problems. They new federal regulations. That mean that. They can have outdoor cultivation so they don't need their greenhouse investments anymore but also they just overestimated what the market would be so all kinds of reasons led to this and now they're they're laying off workers can can you as possibilities for these workers to stay in Canada and go someplace else. What we're hoping we're hoping that is there are employers. Were listening to this. That they could get in touch with us and if they can offer work to the workers we will love for them to let us know. These workers Are Very hard workers? I I we being going to the funds for the last four years and I can speak to. How KAMEDA how? They love their plans. Sometimes they they talk about these plans as they were their babies. The federal government is willing to expedite this work permits if there are employers out there who will be willing to give these These workers on Opportunity. Okay so this temporary foreign workers program in Canada Will allow that to happen. Because I guess it's if they're already here they were gone through screening and everything else and so this could be an opportunity for others to to get some workers but is the company itself is kind of gross offering them anything they are offering them a severance pay. Which is very much related to employment is thunders of rich. Columbia has boy so if they do have to go back to Guatemala. This is all they're getting out of it. What are they going back to you? You're from there. You know what it's like. What what what situations are they returning to? There's not a lot of work opportunities in my life. That does the reason why they apply to these jobs. In Canada we know for by experience that a couple of years ago when we went through the same almost the same issue of workers being sent back by another farm What owned by the COLLINI FAMILY IN BC? These workers were sent back and a lot of them lost their houses. A lot of them lost their line because they could not afford paying for that anymore to this day. A lot of them don't have jobs. You know you having a meeting this evening with about one hundred of these workers and they're they're gonna WanNa know what opportunities are there. How difficult that meeting going to be.

"The Paul W Smith show Friday morning edition coming up this Tuesday. The having the Detroit economic club twenty nineteen Michigan economic outlook. No, one better to talk about that. Then our next guest Kevin d Johnson, the president and CEO of the Detroit economic growth corporation. Kevin good morning to you. Good morning. This morning. I'm doing very well. Are you are you love? I know we spoke to you. When you first came back from I think, it was Atlanta. And and you Ben here you've been doing your job and doing it. Well, if you've been enjoying it. I had it has been a remarkable experience so far and enthusiasm for what's happening in our city in the state of Michigan. Has has really kind of caught the eye of of the nation in the world, quite frankly. Kevin is a veteran of economic development serving in both public and private economic development positions throughout the US including rules in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina Georgia before coming to Detroit. And you have some pretty pretty heady goals here wanting to create some ten thousand jobs open a hundred forty small businesses and secure three point four billion dollars of capital investment in the city by twenty twenty. How's that going? Well, I think we're off to a fabulous star. And it has a lot to do with leadership both politically as well as private sector leadership that has really decided that you know, we are in a in a physician or city of our significance to be able to achieve goals. Like that. Obviously the economy is giving us the jumpstart we need in order to achieve those objectives. But I think it's the political leadership. I'll probably leadership. And and now we're just trying to use and leverage. What the and other partners have to offer to advance that agenda. That's going to be this coming Tuesday that Kevin will be primary speaker president and CEO of the Detroit economic growth corporation for the twenty one thousand nine hundred Michigan economic outlook you go to econ club dot org. Econ club dot org for more information. And to get your tickets for this coming Tuesday, January eighth you know, we are all looking at what's happening in the stock market in Washington everywhere. And there's some headwinds were concerned about that could could affect workforce growth job creation. We want to get those low unemployment rates to continue. But some people are worried about the impacts of these even though they're historically low, but rising interest rates softening consumer demand ahead for auto. Does the talent gap and the the risk of additional tariffs and tariff wars. What are some of your thoughts about all of that? Kevin. Well, you know, each one of those we can spend several minutes on obviously, I'm sure I talk about it. But I think what we have to do locally. And I think all economic development most certainly has its footing at the local level. And with that being said our job is to be advantageous with the market. We have as we can. So what does that mean? That means well, we need to make sure that if a company or a manufacturing facility interested in moving in starting operations in in Detroit that we are as prepared as we can to allow that process take place. So that means, you know, do we have properties available land that they need a symbol. They are they you know in a in a position where they can be transaction elite. Efficient to give them a chance to start those operations. It means that we have to have our processes as efficient as we can. So that you know business moves on time. And we we need to be in sync with that those things happen at the local level. It's. Making sure that small businesses when they are in a area where they're ready to move forward that we already along with them those are local decisions, and if we can do that then some of the stuff that happens at the federal level doesn't have the same type of impact is is it could have if we're not ready to go at a local level. How would have you had much conversation yet with governor Gretchen Whitmer, and how can the new administration in Lansing continue to help? Michigan and Detroit economic boom. Well, I haven't personally spoken with governor Whitman, I know that mayor Duggan has and has on more than one occasion. So I know he's carrying our message forward to the new administration, and for that that shows the kind of leadership that he brings to the forefront our position with the with the state government is let's make sure that they almost look at the economic policies that are put in place the same way, we do at the local level, they know that Detroit special place, they know that we need a certain level of support that that will continue our momentum moving forward, and I know that they're committed to do that. And so goes, Detroit, quite frankly, so goes. A large portion of the state of Michigan and a large portion of mid western United States. So we know how significant we are as a city, and I know that the administration feels that way as well. Kevin Johnson president and CEO of the Detroit economic growth corporation kicking off twenty nineteen at the econ club.

"Dr. Jeff Edwards is a neuroscientist at Brigham Young University in Utah. Now, Dr where we've spent a lot of time talking about the questions that need to be answered. Cannabis is going to be a big industry and now you've moved from academia and industry yourself. So what's this mean for you? It certainly means that there's opportunity for investment in research which has not been present up until now. It's been very challenging to secure funding for clinical trials. It's really remarkable to to shift over into an industry where now there is funding available for studies on a global level. Now, there is, I'm not convincing my colleagues that we have to do these research projects. They get it and they know it and I'm talking and working with people who are also in Tuesday about these new opportunities and would like to expand the research endeavor into other areas. So in some ways, it's extremely validating. In other ways, there are new opportunities. I'm conscious of the potential clash. Between academic public medicine and the industry on hopeful that there are new ethical ways to do this. We can learn from from alcohol from big pharma from the tobacco industry, and cannabis will become its own unique industry which will learn from the mistakes of the past. Doctor wear. Thank you very much for taking us through this. You're very welcome. Thanks for the interest ball that was Dr Mark wear. He's an associate professor in the department of family medicine and NS theology at McGill University where he is currently on leave. He's now the chief medical officer for canopy growth corporation. So we hope we've been able to answer some of your scientific questions on the show today. Even if the answer to a lot of them is, well, we still don't know white co- blackheart will be trying to answer a few more of them this week. They've got a whole show of listener cannabis questions coming up and Dr. Brian Goldman is here to tell us more. Hi, Brian, AIBA. So what kind of questions are you tackling on your show today? Some incredibly practical questions like I'm dry. Next to somebody who's under the influence how dangerous it or I used it myself and I want to know how long it's gonna take to get out of my system before I, it safe for me to drive. We had parents asking about their kids, their teenage kids using marijuana. What are the chances that they end up in the emergency department with psychotic break and the difference between edibles and end inhaling, marijuana doesn't work the same way. How long does it take to work? Just one more thing. I'm curious for you as a physician, what do you think about the amount of stuff that we still don't know about cannabis? It's it's really quite telling, you know, I've been following the research on marijuana from the Gill university and McMaster University, and they're still asking some of the most basic questions. It's like it reminds me of aspirin if aspirin were put forward by health candidate to be approved today, probably wouldn't because it's such a complex medication well-turned that the cannabis is as well with all the receptors that I'm sure you. You talked about. And there's lots of things we don't know about long-term effects and effects on the developing brain. And so this is a giant uncontrolled experiment and will be looking for answers in the next few months and years. Keep both of us busy. Thanks, Brian, you bet.

"You're going to hear from a lot of scientists on today's show, but since there's so much to know about what we don't know about cannabis, we decided to recruit some special help as well. Dr Mark wears one of Canada's leading voices on cannabis science doctor where it's a pleasure to have you on the show to help guide us through all the questions we're going to explore today. Thank you for having me. Now you've studied cannabis as a professor medicine at McGill University and you a vice chair of the federal task force, advising the government on cannabis legislation. And most recently you moved into industry as chief medical officer for a licensed cannabis producer, canape growth corporation. So I'm guessing, you know, as much as almost anyone about canvas. So my first question for you is this, why are there so many unanswered questions about cannabis? It may sound obvious, but if you're going to study the effects of cannabis on people, you have to give it to people. And this is very challenging when the drug is prohibited. It makes it very difficult for growers or produces to develop supply to test it. And then of course, we had to have special licenses from everybody involved in this study from the pharmacist to the nurses to the patients myself, my entire team had to have special licenses to be able to handle the product which takes time. In some cases, we have to import product from outside of Canada, which took some cases years to achieve. So in short, the whole process is very, very hard and paradigm of prohibition. We will now for the first time in recent memory and history, be able to ask questions about the effects of cannabis use on the health. And this means both for therapeutic purposes as well as the possible effects on people's health who use cannabis from whatever age, right through the lifespan. What would you say are the biggest gaps in our knowledge when it comes to how cannabis affects recreational users. Well, I think the first thing is knowing who are recreational cannabis uses for the most part. Imagine somebody phones you up at home and says, you know, I'm calling from stats can or from the government I'm doing a survey. Are you a cannabis user? The likelihood is under a paradigm of prohibition that we're not getting true pictures of who are using cannabis who is the typical cannabis user. We see people with problematic us coming into addictions and substance use programs. We see people come into the emergency room with with health effects, the may or may not be associated with cannabis. We're not.

Number of people unaccounted for an federal agents are accusing a suspected ISIS member arrested today in Sacramento of killing in Iraqi police officer. In two thousand fourteen still to come stocks dropped? Like a rock I'm? Daria, Albinger I'll tell you why the business report coming up KOMO news. Time five sixteen some fireworks following closing arguments in the Paul Manafort Bank and fraud case today. Prosecutors say the defense violated pretrial rules cases go into the jury ABC's Meghan Hughes joins us on the KOMO news line with details, what did. Lawyers for President, Trump's former campaign chair do that riled prosecutors well the judge is offering some extra instructions to the jury Thing that, the government under no obligation, to audit someone before prosecution and then to, possibly a bigger issue that they should ignore any argument. That Manafort was selectively prosecuted by the special counsel now we knew that the defense lawyers in their argument, would attack a gate but they also. Essentially targeted to the origins of, this investigation and the Muller team thing that there was some selective determination that they were connecting dots to they shouldn't have to some of the wording there is certainly riled up prosecutors they wanted to make sure that the jury. Was clear this is not supposed to be about the Mueller investigation essentially so basically what you're saying is that the defense is arguing nobody was concerned about this case with. Manafort until the special counsel started stacking up counts against him exactly exactly saying you know it wasn't banks that were coming forward saying. That this is a real problem d did not? Use the word witch? On, that we've heard from from President Trump but that manner The victim here of an aggressive Muller team connecting these dots and putting this evidence together in such a way that looks makes it look like Manafort is. Guilty, and then of course they were so desperate that they turned to Rick, gates who the defense says is not a trustworthy or credible witness we knew he'd lied before he acknowledged that he'd lied about things so does that really. Even make a difference story that the defense. Is trying to tell here is. That Rick gates is they say was orchestrating a multimillion. Dollar embezzlement scheme that essentially Mr. Manafort was was the victim. That he trusted gates that this was a big mistake and Manafort my feel so foolish sitting here and listening to all of this and bringing up those affairs. Again. Even. In, the closing, arguments saying that Rick gates was essentially trying to fund secret double life and. Pay for this apartment in London but then let's. Go into what the prosecution did, in closing arguments Well a big part of their argument and the rebuttal even in the final comment, is that this is not about Rick gates and they've got the paper the paper is the star witness to documents. Or their star witness that Ricky is not what the prosecution built this case around and there was a lengthy PowerPoint presentation that the prosecution. Presented to jurors putting up images on the screen of Paul Manafort. Signed tax returns from two thousand ten his returns through twenty fourteen that Manafort signed and his income on those reports with false paperwork, from the federal savings Bank loan that he received and then people were conformed Bank account reports that weren't, filed this case is going to the jury any idea how long they might deliberate eight could be some time we are talking about eighteen. Felony, counts from tax fraud Bank fraud that could mean a maximum sentence of more than three hundred years behind bars so there's certainly a.
