She doesn't mind doing it to the American public s o. She would do whatever it is that the Biden campaign needs and restore the status quo to Washington, which everyone's really amped up for. It can't wait to get back to the old days on. That's what Susan Rice would represent. And then there's Kamala Harris, who, for whatever reason, is under consideration in the midst of this giant conversation around police and law enforcement injustice. They decided to go for a prosecutor who treated people deeply unfairly left exonerating evidence off the table that would have helped people on death row in prison people for marijuana usage and then later laughed about her own marijuana usage, flaming hypocrite in all of those ways, so she's out there, both of them rather well known, but there's 1/3 person.

Urgency Behind Nevada's New Bill That Expands Mail-in Voting
"News the Nevada Senate approved a bill Sunday to implement a majority mail in election in November. In their argument Senate Democrats asserted that the measure assembly bill four was needed due to concerns over the Chinese corona virus they cited long lines at the pulse. And close contact with others. The measure which was passed with a thirteen eight vote was not supported by any of the Republican members. Well, that's good that the Republicans Nevada still have a backbone president trump then promptly got Nevada to trend on twitter. He said this in an illegal late night coup Nevada's clubhouse governor. Made it impossible for Republicans to win the state president trump wrote on twitter. Post Office could never handle the traffic of male in votes without preparation using Cova distill the state see you in court. The president is one hundred percent right on this. If we allow mandatory mail in voting to happen unchallenged, we are headed for the biggest disaster of an election in our lifetime. There is a reason why the Democrats want mail in voting it is ripe for fraud. People might say, well, Charlie what about absentee voting that is always a small sliver of the amount of votes in the absentee ballots are always the majority of the voter fraud claims as they are. In some states, absentee ballots are anywhere between five to ten percent. Sometimes, there is lows two percent in states like Oregon, which is complete and Total Democrat control. The only way to vote you cannot show up on election day in Oregon. It is all vote by mail and it starts in early October leading up to election day. Because of this Democrats US organizing tactics to be able to do a thing called ballot harvesting ballot harvesting is how in Orange County California Republicans wants controlled five five US congressional seats in Orange County after the last midterm election. Republicans lost all five. Now Republicans were leading some of those seats such as young Kim on election night. But then all of a sudden new ballots were found. Mail in ballots were discovered. And the Republican candidates. Fell behind and behind and eventually lost the race. The way that voting should work is through independent certification with election judges in decentralized fashion to have the most people centered citizen-focused way of voting. What do I mean by that? It means that when you have a local precinct that is in charge of the election for that one precinct, not the post office of the Postal Service you think called election judges, those election judges. Are Bound by the law and they usually represent both political parties Republican. Democrat, to make sure that there's no funny business now, it's not a perfect system voter fraud absolutely exists but a vast majority of voter fraud is almost always voter registration fraud and ballot fraud with absentee voting. So, if we admit that the Democrats are pushing for mail and voting harder than anything they've pushed for in recent memory, the question should be why. They say it safety. Mean that's such nonsense. Worried about people gathering. Then shouldn't they cancel? The local marijuana dispensary or the casinos in Nevada. In Nevada, you are able to go to Caesar's palace in Nevada, you're able to go to the Venetian in Nevada, you can go to a local restaurant. and. They'd say that's perfectly fine if you wear a mask and socially distance. But it's not okay to be able to go to a local polling place. It's not okay to be able to wait six

Marijuana in California: How the state's legalization of weed has not destroyed the black market
"For decades, pot farmers have hauled their weed on this winding, remote road. A lot of it grown on family farms like Casey O'Neil's. They've been here since the seventies. He's he has just 45 marijuana plants. He calls them his ladies and their tucked between his rose of vegetables all the canvas in this row Strawberry Valley. Good show. O'Neill, who spent time in jail for cultivating marijuana before it was legal, was one of the first to get a license after Prop 64 past. I grow cannabis because I really love it. I like to consume it. I like to be around it. It's something that Provides my being and consciousness with tremendous love and support. But his being in consciousness is getting strangled by red tape and a laundry list of requirements that don't make sense to growers like weighing marijuana leaves. Which is the part of the plan. You don't smoke and can't get you high. I must take all of the leaf that comes off the plant. I must weigh it. I must record the weight and I must put it in a locked compost facility, so it's just side. Big brother. The worry with believes that it's his hand smoke, believe. Why does it matter? Exactly Then there's the cost of operating legally a major reason, O'Neill says. Farmers he knows have decided to keep growing and selling marijuana illegally. For most people out here, the opportunity to participate does not exist the barriers to entry or too high. Costs are too high. The skill sets are too low. The flip side of it is, people are not going to jail for cannabis. And what's the cost to you? So when you factor in consulting fees You know, I just did a back of the napkin calculation. And over the last 34 years, I'm well over 50,000 into it $50,000 for white permits for permits for consulting $2500 a year for the Waterboard discharge permit. It's $750 a year for the pond permit. It's 1350 application fee to the county, plus another 6 75 when they actually give you the permit annually. Farm, this tiny for the smallest farm that there is, and that's one of the problems. Is that what does that do Your profits? What profits you not make any money right now? So where's the money being made in California? Turns out in the very place legalization was supposed to destroy the black market, which often operates out of storefronts like this in strip malls around the state. Susan listen, shops don't have to pay for state and local permits and conceal marijuana much cheaper because they don't charge customers marijuana taxes, which could reach as high as 45%. So it's cheaper and easier to buy pot on the black market, which is three times larger than the legal one. Unlike other industries, we have this kind of in the shadows unspoken about competitors, right and So it's like it's not like California's fully raging, fully legal really were building to fully regulated state, but we're not. We're certainly not there yet

She's treating her nauseousness and her anxiety with marijuana, but in the hospital she's not allowed to use marijuana even if she brings her own edibles or vape pen for Francis, a hospitalization is already an anxiety provoking experience, but is now even more so because she can't use what she knows will calm her down. The majority of states thirty five have legalized marijuana for medicinal uses and millions of Americans use it for. For medicinal purposes, and even more for recreation to relax well many state governments have chilled around marijuana use and focused their drug enforcement efforts elsewhere. Hospitals cling to the past. They feel a strong need to forbid marijuana. No, surely there are a few patients are on medications that might interact with marijuana and doctors and patients should discuss these situations, but what hospitals are doing as forcing patients to be sneaky what Francis has found is that the only way she can reliably relax is with marijuana, so she's forced to act the way she did when she was a teenager and sneak into her hospital room. This is complete nonsense and And it creates a situation where Frances and her doctors are not focused on her best health so now. Doctors don't know what she's taking, so they can't advise her against US marijuana. If there is a really good medical reason for her to abstain, there are many reasons to allow people to use marijuana, the hospital or nursing home if they wish most importantly for conditions, such as chronic pain, anxiety and nausea, it is effective therapy and is often better than prescribed expensive medicines, and if the person is using marijuana and his force to suddenly stop when they come into the hospital, it can cause her symptoms to worsen. Yes, the. The feds are still in the dark ages and consider marijuana a schedule one drug, but they're not pursuing law enforcement at hospitals and healthcare facilities. When a doctor provides a medical need, there are some hospitals, even the Mayo Clinic that have allowed patients to use marijuana in the hospital and in states like California were having. Marijuana is not a crime. There are no state prohibitions on hospital. Use so like much in medicine policies are often remnants of days gone by, and they had not change to keep up with science or demand. Hospitals seemed to be more concerned about upsetting regulators than helping patients, assuming that there's not sound medical. Against Marijuana use a particular person. Francis can't wait to get out of the hospital, but in the meantime she has her stashed marijuana that she takes twice a day and not a single staff member knows about it.

Noose found in Bubba Wallace's garage stall, NASCAR says
"Now? Mike Greenberg Bristol with you this morning. And as I said right off the top of the show, I would have loved to have started with any of those today, and we certainly will get to the mall, but we begin with an absolutely despicable story coming from the world of NASCAR. In this developing story, a noose was found in bubba Wallace's. Stall at the NASCAR race in Talladega Alabama yesterday less than two weeks after Wallace led efforts to push NASCAR to ban the confederate flag NASCAR announced the news last night well after the race had been postponed due to inclement weather, and said it was launching an immediate investigation here. was there statement late this afternoon? Nascar was made aware that a noose was found in the garage stall of the forty three eighteen. We are angry and outraged, and cannot state strongly enough. How seriously we take this heinous act! We have launched an immediate investigation and we'll do everything we can to identify the persons responsible and eliminate them from the sport. As we have stated unequivocally, there is no place for racism and NASCAR, and this act only strengthens our resolve to make the sport open and welcoming to all while himself tweeted a statement last night, which read in. In part today's despicable act of racism and hatred leaves me incredibly saddened, and serves as a painful reminder of how much further we have to go as a society and how persistent we must be in the fight against racism. As my mother told me today, they are just trying to scare you. This will not break me. I will not give enor- rely back down. I will continue to proudly stand for what I believe. In Allah Marty Smith is covering this for us in the scene in Talladega. He joined us an hour ago. The News in Bubbas garage stall was actually seen by a member of his team. Darrell Bubba never saw it. He never saw it personally and win. That team members saw it. He alerted NASCAR. And Nascar immediately had a meeting of its senior executive staff, and they made the decision that they were going to remove this person from the sport as quickly and rapidly as possible. This was not a situation where a fan might have meandered in on this because there were no fans in the garage. So what you're looking at is you're looking at team members. You're looking at officials. You're looking at potential security. You're looking at maybe cleaning personnel that have access to these garage areas. Again! That was Marty Smith with US earlier. Lebron James among many who posted messages about this. He tweeted sickening Wallace, my brother! No, you don't stand alone I'm right here with you as well as every other athlete, I just want to continue to say how proud I am of you for continuing to take a stand for change here in America and sports at Nascar. I salute you as well. Well Sprint Cup driver Michael McDowell added. God help us the level of evil. It takes to do something like this is disgusting. This is enraging and heartbreaking all at the same time Dale. EARNHARDT Jr. tweeted simply a hope of a wins it tomorrow again. The race will be run today. It was delayed by weather yesterday, and as I bring Steven A. and Marcus into the conversation here I'll. Repeat that the area in which this was discovered, there were cameras all over it should be. Relatively easy investigation for the NASCAR officials to conduct, and we are standing by for any information live from Talladega Marty Smith will bring us anything as soon as there is any further news with that thought in mind, Stephen. We've not yet had a chance to say good morning to you I. I just want to give you the floor here. What are your feelings and thoughts as we see this story developed from last night? Well I. Mean I think that for me? Personally I'm a little bit different than the kind of sentiments that have been expressed by a lot of people, because obviously you find this reprehensible and disgusting, and it's incredibly sad, and we get all of that but there's a forgive the the figurative smirk that might end up covering my face or draping my face because to me. Me It's just folks displaying the ignorance, and the more they put it on display, the more it enlightens a lot of people in White. America about what Black America has been telling them about for so many years decades spanning centuries for crying out loud. This is not new. This is something that we've known existed for all time. This is something we know we'll continue to exist. And there is no way around it and so this there comes a point in time where you have to accept that reality one of the things that I would encourage everybody to go watch. If you get an opportunity, you can go on Netflix. You can watch that documentary thirteen by EVA do vernay along with others, sensational job of address mass incarceration in the United States, of America one of the things they highlighted. Is that under the Nixon? Administration where you're literally talking about you know White folks that are hippies and you associate them with marijuana and you associate black. Black folks with crack cocaine, and as a result of that will ultimately galvanize folks in your favor, because they'd be scared to death, and you'd be hearing words like law and order ad, nauseam that was in the sixties for crying out loud in two thousand and twenty, and we're hearing the same thing now. You just have to open your eyes. You have to pay attention to the parallels you have to. You have to pay attention to the correspondence. That's taking place right before your very eyes throughout history, we have had people that have been adroit at light laying low. Controlling the narrative, manipulating the narrative switching things to their favor, all in an effort to maintain or to retain power. It's something to kind of thing that has been taking place in. Usually they've been incredibly skilled at remaining in the dark and saying it's then it's not us, it's them. It's not us well guess what are coming to light more and more in this day and age I find that a cause for celebration, not a 'cause. You know to be saddened by anything. The I find these to be. Beautiful tops as difficult as it may be the fact that I nation appears to be becoming more enlightened than ever before and ultimately as a result. We're coming together. I find that to be a huge plus not a minus. If the ignorance has to show itself, and if the ignore, it has to showcase themselves in order for this to happen coming out of the dock to me. That's of course was celebration Marcus. Stephen. That's what I alluded to earlier man just come on out. Show us who you are, so we know how to deal with you and everybody. That's four. Right knows how to deal with you. Look listen, this is. There has been. We've been having this conversation for a long time. I mean we had this conversation we had. This conversation went capped kneeled about police brutality. We talked about racing all of them and man you. You look if you look around and social. There were people literally Oh twitter last night. Say A BUBBLE! Did this for attention? What what are you talking about like? It's not. It's not unfathomable that someone could do that. We sold Jesse's me. Make reference to that because people can conjure up things to create narratives to make people overreact. That's why saying earlier. Estimate I'm not doing this emotional. Rollercoaster I'm getting off of it right like I'm nuts and bolts to was going on. There is progress that needs to be made in this country I'm focusing on that progress that needs to be made. That's what bubble wireless is focused in on a by making his statements in Nascar. That's a lot of athletes are focused on a lot of people in society in general of focused on making sure that we draw a line between racist people and people that one good for everybody. That's the bottom line. Look for as much as this is egregious and the things that have transpired for low type. I grew up in the south light. It's not. An uncommon for me to see racist people are know what it looks like or even even be surprised or shocked about certain things that tend to happen. The bottom line is this. I'm often emotional roller coaster like if you racist just be that come out publicly and be that enlist separate that and you be a part of the minority port society that we want to get to, and we think we already are at so all of that being said I'm with Steve Day like in this bringing a lot of people to the light, and the hateful ones are fighting their battle because they see slipping away. Score you're not GonNa hear me say this very very often, but I wanNA give major major kudos to a Lotta. White folks out there in America because if it wasn't for them, protesting and marching with black individuals if it wasn't for them, you know engaging in the kind of of of you know resistance to whatever level of oppression we as black people have been feeling this nation I. Don't think some of these folks will. will be coming out I. mean listen the back. In the day. They used to wear the sheets and used to cover the identity and their faces that we didn't know who the hell they were by virtue of that now. Some black people, a lot of black people will tell you they exist in corporate America. They could be the very people that you're working for the very people that you're talking to I happen to be. Be Blessed we happen to be blessed to not certainly not have that at this company is because we've seen the actions on the part of our executives. And what have you over continuous basis? Elevated level of sensitivity that this place has shown throughout the years deserves to be commended. There's always work to do. There is no perfect place. Make no about it, but I'm incredibly proud to be a part of the Walt Disney and And specifically the ESPN family in that regard having set all of that I'm in the minority, because the reality is vast people, there's a vast number of people of African. American descent in the United States of America that feel subjugated I wouldn't go so far as to say enslaved, but feel subjugated by bosses in corporate America people that say all the right things when the cameras are rolling, but behind the scenes they engage. Eight your and the conduct. Subjugation that they devote their voiceless. They don't have a voice in that regard, green. Marcus knows exactly what I'm talking about. And so because of that because of these times that we're living, what we're seeing is a populous within the United States of America that sees the dramatic shift, and there's so appalled, and and put and taken aback by what they see transpiring that they can't hide their vitriol. They're coming out of the dock because they're being forced out of the dog. We as black people. People have to appreciate the fact that couldn't happen without a vast number of white individuals in our society standing with us and saying you know what we see where the hell you coming from. If we didn't see it before we see it now, and we're with you, so you have that other segment of the population saying wait a minute we lose some of our own here. Some of our own alternative guests and the poor in this noxious. We gotTA speak up and as a result. Of the dock again I find that a cause for celebration doesn't bother me at all. If we wore, we wore. Let's get it on. I liked that. I want to leave it there for the moment again. Marty Smith is standing by Talladega. If there is any further information on the investigation, we will have it for you immediately, meanwhile, Steven as going to stay with us here for a few more minutes, and we'll get some football conversation as we go his feelings about the Dallas, cowboys have been well documented. This should be a very big day in Dallas. We will talk about it and why and then Lebron and other NBA players have until Wednesday to decide whether or not they're going to play. What should we expect? Woge will answer that question as we continue this out. GET THEM ON ESPN. GEICO. GETS YOU ACCESS TO LICENSED AGENTS? Twenty four

My minor oreos right now so. Comfortable, well, let's get into your story and here in ten minutes or less. Tell us how long you drank cal long it was a problem and why you decided to stop you know. My story begins at four and a half years old. My father was killed in a drunk on your car crash. and I felt different. A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches. And so from four and a half to two nine years old when my mom remarried I definitely feel different. And my alcoholism showed up before you even took a drink. A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were. Being talked to about school counselor colleges to go the Trish. They were going to cal and Stanford and Michigan Texas Nice Schools in my career counselors, talking about trade schools eventually ended up at a trade school. Arizona State University. and as many no, let's Party School and my alcoholism. Just blew up from there I began doing ecstasy lots of cocaine. In I got out into the real world. And light, actually the day I graduated I got my first you is. Six months later I got arrested for assault. In a bar. A few months later. I got arrested twice in twenty four hours in Mardi Gras. And here's the sicknesses disease stretches I was. There Bourbon Street my first night and went up to speak Irish combination. This is new rules what? What can I do and he says don't piston the streets and don't fight and streets. and. So Trish I'm GonNa have you guess what two things I got arrested for? Did you see while you were fighting with somebody or I'm not that multitalented. So the happened I and less than eighteen hours later, I was led out got back on the streets. got drunk and high again it could not find a bathroom, so I decided in the streets and got caught one more time and so. I have a nice arrest record there in the lovely speakeasy of Louisiana got to be the most eventful twenty four hours I've ever heard of by the way, but I don't WanNa. Take, I. Don't want to interrupt too much. Go ahead, but no, it's crazy. I was real resentful for a lot of years that hey you guys took away my Mardi Gras. You guys, you guys room. I buzz. You know for years. Even sober years in a one old-timer pulls me aside goes. Let me tell you how. How God works God put you in those paddy wagons to save your ass. Because what would happen if he would've stayed out there, you would have been stabbed. Shot would hooked up with some girl and probably got S. t you don't know what would happen, but both those times. He puts you in a paddy wagon because he did for you. What you do yourself and it hit me right between the eyes young. He was right. He's absolutely right. Then I went back to the San. Diego Start Working and I had some resentments. I was promised to a high paying job at a college. I. Was only making nineteen thousand dollars a year and I was working overnight, said the TV station. I don't know about you, Trish when I would get out of work at three o'clock am. There's certain people that are out at three am right.

"Daniel Piomelli as a professor at university of California Irvine and directs the school. New center for the study of cannabis. I think what we need to understand is if there is a level above which kind of is becomes seriously problematic and the result before which kind of is still not problematic. Danielle says to be clear he also wouldn't recommend that women used any kind of marijuana while pregnant or breastfeeding, but he also says researchers like him have a duty to find out if women are going to use are there, safer ways. Those are questions he hopes to answer. This is a harm reduction aptitude that I think has really lacked in the past because what prevailed in still I think a little bit psychologically prevails is the idea of say no Danielle says any definitive answers are still potentially decades away. That's Michelle Loy. She's a reporter at KCRW. Her story was produced as a project for the USC Annenberg center for health journalism twenty eighteen California. Fellowship. We're talking about marijuana all of the new questions and issues that are popping up as attitudes and laws are changing at a rapid pace. I think there are some idea out there that because we're legalizing it. It means that it faith when we we really don't know. That's the case. That's Karen Wilson. She's a professor of pediatrics at the Icahn school of medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City. She's been researching the health impacts of secondhand tobacco smoke on children for years. 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. All right, Matt, ARGUS singer, Jason Moser run. Gross guys. We see later in the show up. Next Bloomberg BusinessWeek writer, Ashley Vance.

"And some of them have licenses for small drug offenses in some marijuana actually was in there with a guy who got twenty two years for running a state licensed medical marijuana dispensary the george w bush administration decided to prosecute him and he's been sitting there for ten years for following state law well senator let me ask you about that people in this country who are currently sitting in jail for marijuana charges as i mentioned cities across the country have really liberalized their marijuana laws philadelphia pittsburgh new york right here in dc and insead atl aware marijuana's legal mayor jenny durkan has led the effort to vacate marijuana convictions altogether here is what she argues for too many who call seattle a home a misdemeanor marijuana conviction or charge created barriers to opportunity to good jobs to housing to credit and to education and it disproportionately targeted communities of color by asking the seattle municipal court to vacate those convictions i think we take a step closer to having a more just society in a brighter future for our neighbors and to putting our progressive values into action senator that is also a key part of your bill talk more about that i have a real triple my shoulder for all these people who are like hey let's legalize marijuana and now it's only legal but yet there are these disproportionately impacted communities that are carrying that life sentence i expressed before and so to say that you hear about legalizing marijuana and if you don't say in your next breath and we should expunge the records of those people who've been caught up in this unjust persecution to me you're not you're not addressing the the the shameful past of this country and so my legislation goes even further than that it's also about expunging but it's also about all this tax revenue coming because remember marijuana arrests were not diffused throughout the united states of america they were concentrated in certain communities and certain neighborhoods where you're taking people away from their families their children are suffering now you're lowering the economic wellbeing of entire communities and so all these tax receipts that are coming in now we should be reinvesting in those communities have been disproportionately impacted reinvesting in education programs job training programs drug treatment programs to try to get restorative justice back there and the other thing my bill does is it incentivizes states to change their marijuana laws if they've been disproportionately impacting communities through its enforcement creates a carrot and the stick mine you if they don't we've got to be about restorative justice and we've understand that since the nineteen sixties and seventies we've been engaging a war on drugs which has really been a war on people has verily damaged a communities in ways that have caused serious serious harm that we should be redressing so i want to ask this question to you well then and then senator booker if you could address it so we're having this conversation about the war marijuana specifically but we we can't separate that from this broader conversation that we're having nationwide about the criminal justice system weldon you were caught up in a system directly connected to mandatory minimum sentencing and how many people think how harsh assistant that is you need you leave no space for thought or logical sentencing and few months ago senator we were able to have a bipartisan coalition really thinking about sentencing reform so while i think my question to you i is how do you address and what do you think are the steps that we should take to really break down and look at the entire system as a whole we definitely need to get rid of mandatory minimums i think that'd be a good place to start and as far as ending the war on drugs i think ending marijuana prohibition is the first step and finally ending the destructive wasteful and then senator can i ask you we have this bipartisan coalition on sentencing you saw momentum at the federal level you saw an attorney general under eric holder put out of a number of edicts to his prosecutors across the country and we've seen a major rollback in the last eighteen months where are we today i just want to tack the premise of your question not attack attic on premise because most americans have no clue what is going on in our names every single day criminal remember it's the state versus where the people vs we are the people and we've allowed this nation that professes to be.

"The way to seizures excuse me so i am very excited about this year should be too because it means that we are going to be in a place very very soon where the outlawing of marijuana will be thing of the past you will you you may have to walk into a doctor's office and get prescribed to you but you're going to be able to do that and you're going to be able to use all the positive stuff that comes from the marijuana plant and and and you know the benefits of that which should be the case from the beginning nobody should be stopping you from using drug if you want to use the drug it it's ridiculous especially for something like that i mean can you imagine if you had a son or a daughter that's having some of them are having like like ten fifteen seizures a day some have more than that but i'm saying i'm you know you've got one that so you've got a kid having ten seizures day and cbd oil knocks it down to two i mean think about that think about how incredible that would be another says forty percents all right let's say knocked down from ten to six think about the increase in the quality of life of your child thing about your increase in the quality of your life it's it's just it's unreasonable ridiculous that it's taken this long to get something like this on the market and the truth is if we didn't have these schedule they didn't classify this as a schedule one drug if they would just let people use it and work with it i think they'd find a lot more uses for it as well i don't know you think about people with anxiety and and depression and all of the different things that that that that marijuana would be used to treat if legal and it just i don't i'm not a drug user guys this is the thing you need to understand i'm not i'm not i do not partake day i'm not a drug user it just is it's something that i don't understand why the government gets in front of we're talking about positive and negative rights in a minute and this actually has real in an important application there in being a negative rights in negative right meaning no one should stand in your way from the you know from from from from pursuing this and for some reason the government has seen fit to stand in the way of this and all it does cause harm there's there's no there's no real positive outcome from from making marijuana illegal none if you want the truth of it there's no real positive outcome making any drug illegal because of people wanted they're gonna get it and somebody's going to be there to supply it the only question is do you create a black market around it or not and if you want to calculate the loss of life to illegal drug use and compare it to the loss of life from drug cartels from people who are trying to smuggle drugs across the border from violence related to the sale of drugs by the by the cartels by the drug dealers and the gangs the the drug war itself has cost a hundred times as many lives as the drugs them so you wrap your head around that total number of people who died from the drugs themselves versus the number of people who died in the drug war it's astronomical in these incalculable how many people how many lives have been damaged from the drug war and the truth is people still using drugs where there are no fewer drugs on the street today than there ever have been it's still continue states still continues it'll continue as long as people want we learned nothing from prohibition nothing if you're going out law something that everybody wants they're going to create a black market around and there's going to be an underground in in that case the mob that's gonna rise up during that time period to control the illegal activity and what happened after prohibition ended where the mob go away now the shifted they shifted to gambling and drugs now started to get a.
