In austin and stubb's barbecue is on Is in downtown. And it's a great music. Venue added a young age introduced me to old country like willie nelson ernest. Tubb johnny cash.

I called my dad and said hey well he's playing what you come down and logos. Am and he said okay came down. We went to the concert. Together was the first time i had been around my any of my parents with the smell of marijuana in the air that go it was it was good. It was fine another step into adulthood. I think that's right willies. Great i love one of the things i love about him is that he. It's obviously a family employment situation. He's got all his family members up playing with him. And i think it's so sweet like i think that might be a big part of the reason he makes music. There is a strong sense of joy. You can see in his eyes and his face when he's when he's up there he's he's one of the great legends of our time and Everyone in texas loves willy. And somehow he's been able to be this progressive voice a very conservative state supporting dennis kucinich bernie sanders for president yet Everyone across the political spectrum loves him and he somehow figured out something. I think we need to tap into something we can. we can learn from. We're gonna talk more about the way that people can bridge the gap that way but you do your work under the affiliation of glide memorial church which is a nationally recognized center for social justice in its dedicated to fighting systemic injustices creating pass way out of poverty in crisis and transforming lives what i love about glide though is it's the only church i know that it has conducted a youtube arrest which is based on the music of you to have you ever gone to that service. No that was before my time. But i know that That bano is a big fan of glide and cease a williamson generic. Tiny the founders. And i hear people reflect on those days but Unfortunately i was before i came around to glide well when concerts start again when band start. Touring again If you to comes to town. I'm guessing they'll come by glide and do another youtube grist so your book came out in january. It's called many are union healing communities through courageous conversations. And it's based on the work that you've done through a program called different together as mentioned as part of a part of the programming glide memorial church. So let's just start by hearing about different together. What is it and why did you decide to start. It will take you back to the days following the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Must you must start. That way is better than the two thousand twenty election go ahead. Donald trump had just been elected and I was shocked by the outcome and Also really realizing that. I was out of touch with tens of millions of people with americans who who voted for him despite all of the red flags that came up during his campaign and in those days following the election. I wanted to do something. I knew i needed to do something but i didn't know what that was and I was standing on the street and san francisco one afternoon and An older white woman approached me and said kind of under her breath. I do not say anything in this town. But i'm glad that he won. And i've resisted the temptation to be dismissive But i chose to go into this conversation. I said we'll why is that. And she said that the the election wasn't about race race issue isn't as bad as it was in the nineteen sixties and. I said well you know. It's not really up to us as white people to decide whether it's better or worse we need to listen to the people who experience it and see what they have to say and the conversation went back and forth for just a few moments and we parted ways and we wished each other well and it was really a pleasant conversation considering the topic but i walked away realizing that there is power in these connections and that there is power in disagreement in sharing different perspectives and challenging each other and i felt relieved that i was able to communicate with someone that i strongly disagreed with and wanted to do more of this so from that. Interaction was born the different together project at glide and we've been meeting regularly with conservatives both in the bay area and across the country since the beginning of twenty seventeen and it has transformed me the way that i view this topic the way i view other people as well as the people who who participate regularly in it

Decriminalizing The War On Drugs
"In the summer of nineteen seventy one president richard. Nixon declared a so-called. You're on drugs. But i consider this problem so urgent. I also found that it was scattered so much throughout the government with so much conflict without coordination that it had to be brought into the white house so that we have not only the responsibility but the authorities to see that we wages defensive effectively an coordinated way the goal was to curb the use of illicit substances by levying increased. Police presence classifying a number of drugs at the federal level and by making longer prison sentences. Mandatory for the use and distribution of narcotics nearing the fiftieth anniversary of that decision. The war on drugs is still very much alive. Millions of people have been incarcerated from windows policing and the advent of stop and frisk to no knock warrants and the militarization of local police departments. All of this born from the so called war on drugs and all have been used primarily target communities of color advocates for reform have long that punitive policies have not only failed to reduce the flow of drugs across the country but also strengthen illicit drug markets creating risky and unhealthy conditions for people who choose to use drugs. Meanwhile more than seventy thousand people died last year alone as a result of drug. Overdoses is clearly failing in the war on drugs and advocates. Say it's because we've gone about it completely. The wrong way by focusing on the criminal element of drug use instead of seeing it through the lens of healthcare access and social justice to talk about this issue. We're joined by muddied sep it is. Who's the director of the national affairs at the drug policy alliance in washington d. c. leads the organization's federal work to end the war on drugs. Mighty snap is welcome to letting you. usa inc you. I'm so excited to be here with you today. So recently a lot has been happening with drug decriminalization but before we get into that. Let's take a few steps back and you know. Set the picture for how we got to this place and this is a place where for example someone could be caught in possession of a small amount of marijuana and they could be sentenced to spend the rest of their life in prison in some parts of the country. Still yes sadly. That's the case. Drug enforcement continues to be a driver of mass incarceration. In fact one person is arrested every twenty three seconds for simple drug possession so it continues to be a a big feeder into not just the criminal justice system but you have to think of all of the collateral consequences for instance a conviction can make it harder for you to put your life back on track to go to school to obtain even get a job in the first place to keep a roof over your head to feed your family so it continues to be something. That is a huge detriment. In a lot of people's lives many drugs that are illegal today such as marijuana opium coca psychedelics if unused for thousands of years for both medical and spiritual purposes but we also know that this country has a long history of pech waiting racialized drug war. I think something that a lot of people might not know is that the first anti-drug laws in the united states were actually built specifically to criminalize people of color. Starting with the eighteen seventies we saw laws targeting chinese immigrants in california. This is the first time we saw anti opium laws pop around. Are you saying that basically opium was around and used once you had the arrival of men and women from china who were actually working on the railroad that that's when it becomes a problem. Yeah so what. We started to see around. the eighteen. Hundreds was that anti drug laws started to pop up. Civically created to target certain communities of color and the eighteen seventies saw the rise of the first anti-drug laws in those drugs were anti opium laws that were targeted at chinese immigrants. Soon after that in the nineteen hundreds in the south we saw that mccain became illegal in that was related target african american men Who were using the substance and then of course in the nineteen thirties. That mexican mexican americans were criminalised for marijuana use. Of course you know when we talk about. Marijuana can't ignore the fact that marijuana itself was a term that was developed to criminalise mexican americans and mexicans who were who were using the plant and this happened with the first individual who was responsible for drug enforcement in the us but these were all intentional decisions by the government to criminalise communities of color to really dejected. People who were not wanted in the society and you know unfortunately those policy decisions still play out today because drug use continues to be something that there is a lot of hysteria around and people of color continued to be disproportionately enforced for drug use and drug activity even though all the data tells us that black and brown individuals use drugs at similar rates and sometimes even lower rates than white individuals.

We noticed that more and more parents were saying, oh, no, I don't smoke tobacco anymore just marijuana because it's natural. And at that point, we all realize that marijuana was becoming normalized even more so than tobacco, and we are quite concerned that as we moved into legalization that would mean that more children would be exposed to second hand marijuana smoke. Karen says at this point we still don't know very much about the health impacts of second hand marijuana smoke on chill. Children does it irritate their lungs. Could it affect issues like asthma in one study? She found almost half of children whose parents smoke marijuana tested positive for lower levels of THC and some of those kids would have tested positive in a drug test. And what does that mean does that mean that they felt the psychoactive effects of marijuana? Or does it just mean that they were in the presence of it? It just means they were in the presence of it. We really don't know anything about how they are experiencing this. We don't know if children are more susceptible to the influences, or maybe they're less susceptible to the influences. There is no data on that part of what has made this difficult is that in many cases being exposed to marijuana smoke is still reportable to child protective services, and so doing research and being able to identify families where this is occurring can. Can be really problematic and in all of the cases when we've studied this. We've done this anonymously. So we can't go back and link those results with any specific patient, which makes it much much harder to do the kind of long term follow up studies that we would need to do to be able to understand the true effects of this children. Karen Wilson is a professor of pediatrics at the Icahn school of medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. Medical marijuana is becoming so much more available, but many of the ground rules are still unclear who benefits from it who should take it. And for what does it have a role at all in pediatrics back in two thousand nine Marie Myung Oakley noticed a change in her son. He has autism and his tantrums suddenly started to escalate after he turned nine he was having a lot of violence. He was hitting people. He was hitting himself. He would be destructive in her house. He destroyed a lot of things, you know, towel bars were bent walls had dents in. And he also most disturbingly started to eat his clothing. This is an eating disorder called pica where people eat things that are not food. Jason's paiko was so severe..

"Knowing marijuana is messing with your life goals and still getting high all the same. He says there's a growing number of people in the US like me people who wanna cut down or stop altogether. He thinks maybe it's because the weed itself is more potent these days anything less than fifteen percent THC is a rip off the back in the nineteen seventies. It was three to six percent THC harder to get addicted to less dangerous certain dangerous compared to uncle the drugs changed. In the meantime, do you think? We ever underestimated. The issue of problem users when we started examining issues around legalization. I don't know. But we sure noted he says about thirty years ago when they looked at people who had used marijuana in the past month. Only eleven percent of them were daily users today Mark says that number is more like thirty five percent again about a third of them report. The symptoms of cannabis users order and those heavy users account for about eighty five percent of the week consumes one of these things that I encounter all the time are people who like to tell me that. I can't be an addict, what do I say to these people? I mean, I know what I'd say them. But I can't say on the air. I talked to Dr J Michael Bostick. He's a professor of psychiatry at the mayo clinic who specializes in addiction counseling, I told him the same thing. How people like to tell me that I couldn't possibly be addicted to weed that that is complete garbage. But again, if you go with the definition that there's a problem as a result of you use whether you're meeting your goals is the family member or as a. Apparent or as a spouse as an adult or whether potential your substance uses interfering with your progress. And it doesn't much matter. What other people say? So I tell him about how I started breaking promises to myself smoking earlier and earlier every day, for example, since it is psychoactive, I would say that you probably liked the way that it made you feel and on one level wanted to feel that way all the time. But on the other level may have felt I don't know you'll have to speak to this uncomfortable when you weren't high when you got up in the morning, I did feel that way. And as it went on I began to feel more and more uncomfortable all the time, and you probably increased your the amount that you were taking in. I sure did which is almost an exact description of any kind of addictive substance or practice. Anyway, that's how smoking everyday me feel, but I also wanted to know what it was doing to my brain. So for that I reached out to Dr Susan Weiss. A psychologist and senior science adviser at the National Institute of drug abuse. Hannah-beth is a very interesting drug because there is an entire signaling system called the Endo cabinet system. She told me the system goes through different parts of your brain and body. There's a hit the campus which is an area of the brain that's important for memory. And we know that marijuana impairs memory..

"I mean, time is a part of that equation, and so under armor is going to have to put in some time to do that. But I think that they've got some decision making going now that has got this company headed back in the right direction in terms of the next twelve months for under armor. How big is the ecommerce channel? Because one of the things we've seen recently with Nike is they've done a good job of building that out. Yeah, and with Under Armour at sits very much the same story. I mean, we see with the sports authority going under with Dick's sporting goods, obviously, having its own challenges, Nike and Under Armour continue to push that direct consumer channel. It's response for about a third of Under Armour sales today. I expect it will become more as time goes on, definitely the will continue to invest in that channel. The award for IPO of the week goes to event, bright shares of the ticketing and event technology platform rose, seventy percent on its first day of trading. You tell me, Mattie, is event. Right? A stock I need to put on my radar. Well, it's it's an interesting company and I'd I'd qualify that seventy percent because even though the IPO price was twenty three dollars and actually opened a trading at thirty six. So us public investors never have obviously had an opportunity to buy twenty three dollars, but still very impressive debut the company has as far as I understand, it's it's really focused on the smaller creators. So anyone from small artists to fundraising, things like that and and creating events selling tickets to those things. You have two hundred and fifty million dollars in million dollars in revenue over the last twelve months that's growing about fifty percent per year mortgage gap right now is around three billion. So it's the valuations high. And I'd say, I'd wonder how they compete or measure up against a company like live nation, which also does events, but obviously on a bigger scale and also owns venues and has relationships with artists. I think bright is probably a company that's going to focus on the smaller events, smaller artists, and maybe that's their niche well, and that's the thing. When you look at bright to business and sort of the the venues they're working with the exit they're working with in the same way that we talk about young startup beverage companies. Part of their goal is we just want to be bought by a much bigger beverage company. I'm wondering if part of a vent Bright's idea is hopefully at some point live nation is going to buy us. It's possible, but I wonder if live nation would never be interested in doing things at this kind of scale. But you know, hey, event Pryke approves them all out. And I think they've obviously had some nice direction. They they serve seven hundred thousand creators and events last year. There's probably there something to the business.
