Breaking Down the Reason for the Britney Griner Conviction
"Brittany griner, her excuse was that she has medical marijuana and she decided or she accidentally left the marijuana in a bag because she was packing in an expedited fashion. She was rushing. And any man in America knows. Let me just explain it like this. Don't get mad at me. Women, they have a whole bunch of stuff to pack and they get crazy when they pack in all kinds of stuff. I can see how a woman can forget a vape pen or whatever in a luggage. However, Brittany griner is a man, or at least in her relationship she looked like the man in the other girl looked like a girl. So her masculinity makes me believe that she aligns more with men and you know men we ain't packing Harley anything. It's no way we gonna accidentally put a pen in there because we only got 5 shirts in three underwear. And we gone for a whole month. Women got makeup in there. And if they time them up correctly, they gotta put them things in there. And so you got a whole bunch of stuff that women are packing. But Brittany griner, she dressed like a dude. She acted like a dude. She's probably not packing that much stuff.

Will Britney Griner Develop a New Love for America?
"I wanted to talk about a developing news story surrounding a young woman by the name of Brittany griner. You probably know her from the WNBA, although I don't know if anybody watches the WNBA. Just jokes, just jokes. These are fantastic women. But Britney griner was actually detained while in Russia. On February 17th for allegedly carrying a marijuana concentrate in her luggage. Now, I was familiar with Brittany griner, not through her work with the WNBA, but because she was dedicated to protesting America, mainly in the name of Black Lives Matter, Brittany griner said that she would be protesting during the national anthem all season for the W and BA. We see this in the form of kneeling during the national anthem, not pledging to the flag, not wanting to show any allegiance or pride for one's country. And many WNBA players followed suit with her. We saw the NBA also participate. We saw football participate virtually every sport. It was starting to be politicized in taking a stance in support of Black Lives Matter. Of course we got many athletes who decided to step outside of that idea. Joshua Jonathan Isaac from the Orlando Magic was one of the many or should I say few, really, who decided to stand during the national anthem and not protest this country. But Brittany griner has fallen into misfortune. She was in Russia. She got detained at an airport for apparently having these marijuana cartridges in her suitcase. And has now been detained there for over 100 days. And suddenly, America is looking real good to Britney kreiner as you might imagine.
Dr. Mark McDonald Explains the Dark Effects Lockdowns Have on Children
"There's something deeply troubling happening in America. We have the most depressed, suicidal, alcohol addicted, generation, in history. Why is this happening? Did we do this to ourselves? Well, with us to help unpack and explore that topic and we don't have enough time to do it, but enough to get started is a great American patriot doctor Mark McDonald, doctor welcome back to the program. Good to be back, Charlie. So doctor, let me ask you from a psychological perspective. A lot of parents are wondering, now that the lockdowns are over and their kids are back into the flow, why are they now more depressed than ever? What's your answer to that? Well, my answer to that is, you know, I've been seeing children for ten, 12 years now in private practice. And in the last two and a half, I have never, ever seen such a rapid precipitous decline in mental health, anxiety, depression, suicidality, two children and my practice died during the lockdowns, both from fentanyl overdoses in their homes. I also see incredibly huge rapid increases in drug use, especially marijuana, which as anyone who's been listening to news lately has heard, is finally now starting to get it to do as a cause of significant psychotic breaks and executive functioning problems in young people. It should have happened years ago and finally it's now being heard. The reason why we still have problems, even after these lockdowns are over is that we haven't actually addressed the fundamental problem. And the cause of this mental health collapse. And in my view, it has a lot to do with alienation, particularly young men and young boys. We have not supported strengthened and encouraged boys to become men to explore, to grow, to challenge, to accomplish. We have essentially been telling them now for years and years that they are the cause of every problem and society that they are rapists that they are misogynists, that they're the patriarchy. And so what you see, and you saw this just a few days ago on the July 4th shooting, as you see a very disturbed young man, you can tell just by looking at his face, his hair has gone to expression. He's confused. He's wearing a skirt he wants to be a transgender girl. These boys don't have a place. They don't have a sense of purpose. They don't understand what their identity or their meaning is. And so they're leaving now this locked down period where they've been sitting in front of screens playing games and watching porn, not going to school, not being tested with reality. And they are completely at a
A Bipartisan Look at Opioids with David Carlucci
"I really want to point out on this podcast if somebody is opening up this podcast and they're listening to me and David talk about this. Let me just say this real quickly. These drugs that you're getting that relate heroin and others that are being life. It could be your one time. It doesn't, you're not going to be 6 years strong out and then all of a sudden hit one. You could do this the first time and I think this is the important part. You know, we can have differences on how we actually live with marijuana or cannabis, those kinds of things. But one of the things that we struggle with in Congress, David, and I know it came back to a state level, was the access to opioids that came out of basically legal prescriptions. And that sort of triggered off this sort of latest round about ten to 12 years ago when, you know, whether it be more health insurer plan, whatever the doctors were prescribing them is if, frankly, they had no effect. I think we're getting a handle on that, but we're still feeling the after effects from what I've seen. I don't know how that was in New York. It is Georgia and other places. No access to opioids, like OxyContin, you know, have just really exacerbated the situation. And we look at former marketing materials that made opioid seem like they were not addicted. The total opposite, right? It's one of the addictive substances on earth. And you're absolutely right. This is not a recreational drug. You know, this isn't a joint and hanging out. Opioids are a serious, serious addiction. And I remember naloxone or Narcan, the brand name accessible. And this was about the commissioner of the health department of New York State that I was in a back and forth because at that time you needed a prescription to carry naloxone, which is the opioid antidote. And if we get it in someone's system or rise up. So we actually had to pass New York and we were the first state to do this to say that naloxone would be accessible over the counter doing that legislation. It didn't need to be legislated, but it wasn't being done through the health department. The health department could have issued just like they do to issue vaccines for the flu or other issues like COVID, what we've seen with vaccines. But that's where it gets back to the
Brittney Griners Coach: If It Was LeBron, He Would Be Home
"There's so much news going on and so much craziness left it so out of control. But I want to talk about Britney griner. Now I know for a fact y'all don't know who Brittany grinder is 'cause she's a women's basketball player. And I don't think nobody watches women's basketball. They can't even dunk. However, she's making the news because she ended up going to jail out there in Russia. Why she in jail, mister Tatum, is it because she's black? Is it because she's a woman? Because she's a part of the LGBTQ and Russia wants to punish her and have her as a political prisoner. No. It's because she committed a crime. She tried to smuggle illegal drugs into Russia. I think it was a CBD, not CBD. It was some marijuana peeing or something like that. That she smuggled in. Did she not know the laws of the land? Yes, she, of course she did. She tried with the Russia many times. I believe she played on the sports team there in the off season. So she'd been there a hundred times. And obviously I'm exaggerating a number, but she's been there many times. Enough to know better. But you know what, when you live in a place, or a reality where you do not have to be held accountable for anything, then of course you think you can smuggle into somebody else's country. And if you ever get caught, you think somebody's supposed to bail you out. Because you have never taken responsibility for your own actions. Now, of course, her coach came out and I'm not going to say her coach's name because she's completely irrelevant just as much as your girl Brittany grinder is irrelevant. Her coach comes out and makes the most ignorant statement I've ever heard in my life. She said, well, let me say her first statement was smart. The rest of her statements were ignorant. She said if this was LeBron James, they would have gotten a matter a long time ago. Duh, duh. You talking about one of the greatest basketball players to ever play. Of course they would get him out of there. Why, mister Tatum? Because half of America would be protesting right now and it would be talking about it on television all day long around almost every sports lovers dining room table, they're going to be talking about LeBron James. How can in the NBA continue without LeBron James?
Could Anything Have Stopped the Highland Park Shooting?
"To marijuana. It was a stoner from the reports of some peers. Heavy, heavy stoner, and I don't know if he was on meds as well. And I don't know if that would have contributed. I think it's a subject that needs to be looked into, and I am a believer in psychiatric medication when necessary, so I don't come from any anti drug position. But if we care about evil, we meet through explore everything openly.
Charlie Debates Trans Marxist Ben Carollo on China
"How are an individuals wants and needs represented best in a Marxist society? I'll ask the commie. Obviously through their democratic structure, like the reality is, right? This is the thing, right? Obviously going back to the role of the state to serve the interests of the working class to suppress the interests of capitalists, which is exactly why people like Charlie Kirk obviously are very unsettled with it because the reality is that in America, working class people have to worry about the government kicking down their door for doing things like smoking marijuana. But in China, it's not that working class people have to worry about the government kicking down their doors. It's corrupt billionaires that have to worry about the government kicking down their doors. Just look, for example, giant tech companies, making tons and tons of money in China with very little regulations. Well, what does China do? They put in tighter regulations on these tech companies. And then they take money from these tech billionaires, and then they give it to anti poverty programs across the more rural parts of China in order to fund schools, food, things like that. Like for example, China is this really, really great co op development program, which is really, really great. So they combine ecological. I can tell you you don't even believe this, by the way. If you've got to be, you got to be acting at this point. Why do you think I'm acting? Because you're actually, it's because the reality is so different of the millions of people in China that are literally forcibly held in their homes. The millions in concentration camps, the people that can't even breathe because the air quality is so bad. How about the underground Christians that are murdered in the streets for trying to go to church. So no, continue on your beautiful co op in Beijing, like yeah, we could grow vegetables in Shanghai, so it's so great. That's kind of the argument,

The Border Crisis Is Fueling Fentanyl Deaths
"Fitting on. Let's talk about fentanyl real quick. Some people call it fentanyl. I call it fentanyl. When I was a police officer in Tucson, we had such a huge issue with fentanyl in our state. I remember when fentanyl did not exist, and I remember shortly after maybe two years, I said, I don't know how deep I was on a job. Maybe I was 6 years into the job, 5 years into the job. Fitting all became out of control. To the point where every single drug we ever tested, we have to put on a biohack suit with gloves and a mask on. And booty's on your feet. In order to test any drug, I don't care if it's appealed, I don't care if it's marijuana because fentanyl had gotten out of control and is so potent and dangerous that if you inhale vapor from fentanyl you can die. If you touch it and get it on your skin, you could It was really that bad. Now while we're not just extremely concerned in my opinion about fentanyl, that's killing way more people than COVID can. And that's literally coming right in through our borders, unobstructed.

Charlie Hurt on the Left Weaponizing Basic Known Facts
"Kind of in this final moment. You've been in the conservative movement for quite a while longer than I have. Are you starting to see a difference in how conservative especially kind of those conservatives that could go either way, you know, either be with the base on certain issues or be with kind of the chamber and the moderates. Are you starting to see kind of a turning moment where the kind of attacks from The Washington Post and The New York Times and the kind of weaponizing of name calling matters less? Are you starting to see a sea change in that regard? I think so. And it's not just weaponizing it's weaponizing basic known facts and the perfect example is this idea and even you and I have fallen for it. We get into these arguments with people about whether there are two genders or 18 genders, right? And the mere fact that we're having that discussion means that we are not having a serious rational discussion about anything. We're just and also, by the way, we look ridiculous. Engaging in a. Mud smearing fight with an idiot. I mean, no one comes out of that looking intelligent. And if that's what happens, then they win. Because then they go to the next thing. And I do think that so and part of the reason that they do that, of course, is so that rational, common sense, good meaning Americans tune out. And they assume that political discussions are about whether or not there are 8 genders.
Charlie Hurt Joins Us to Discuss a Post-Leftist American Experience
"With us is Charlie hurt the smart and great American Charlie. Welcome to the program. Thanks for having me. But it's so funny. I get it too. And when I hear your name, I'm like, why what's going on here? But then the worst for me and this isn't a problem for you because I'm not a step up from you. But when I get introduced as Charlie Kirk, I'm like, what, wait, wait a minute, I'm not that smart. I'm actually the dumb version of Charlie Kirk. So this is going to be like this interview is going to be really disappointing if you're expecting Charlie Kirk and you get Charlie hurt. I don't know about you. But some people, even dumb people need representation, a voice in Washington, and that's what I'm here for. Very funny. So Charlie there's a lot of different stories that we could unpack. I just want to kind of ask you a broader question. Where do you think we are politically? I did a whole kind of monologue I guess you could say a thesis trying to basically making the argument that we're in this final phase, that conservatives were not falling for the bait from the left anymore. We don't care what names they call us. And basically the left in a kind of last move of desperation, they become just basically enamored with brute force, punishing and politicizing the criminal justice system against their political opponents. Where do you think we are just from a 35,000 foot view? Wow. I think that I think we're actually on the exact same spot on this. I think we are emerging into sort of this post leftist world. And I hate to almost take saying this publicly because I don't, I don't want to sound pollyannish, and I'm not trying to sound hopeful. But I can't help but be hopeful because you captured perfectly. I think that all of their ideas have run their course.
Alex Berenson Talks About Weed and It’s Crushing Effect on Society
"With us right now is Alex berenson, who deserves a lot of credit for his research throughout the entire pandemic and kind of being a contrarian data focused voice, which I think he deserves just our praise because he became a great cost for him personally and professionally Alex welcome back to the program. Charlie, thanks for having me. Alex, I want to talk to you about a different book though than your commentary on COVID. And it's just interesting because our audience has mixed views on this. My view is pretty well known. I'm not a fan of marijuana or weed, I think that there's an untold story around the consumption of marijuana that isn't always highlighted in the media. You wrote a book called tell your children the truth about marijuana mental illness and violence. Tell us about the arguments you make in the book. Tell us why you wrote the book and did you come into like beginning with any sort of opinion before you went on your research journey? Sure. So tell your children came out in 2019 about three and a half years ago now almost. And I wrote it over the previous couple of years, my wife is a psychiatrist, a forensic psychiatrist, actually. So that means she deals with the criminally mentally ill. Mainly. And she had seen a lot of patients who had committed crimes under the influence of cannabis. And sometimes other drugs too, but and sometimes alcohol. But cannabis really was the thread that was common in all of these. So she encouraged me to look at this connection and, you know, I'd been a reporter for The New York Times for ten years and I'd covered mainly the pharmaceutical industry, but I really didn't have much of a view about cannabis legalization. I'd used a handful of times in my life, but it was not a drug that I'd used a lot or cared particularly about. Either way. And what I found was that she was right. You know, of course she was right. She treated these people. And knew what she was looking for and knew what had happened. But there's a huge body, a huge and growing body of scientific research that canvas really is dangerous to a lot of people's mental health. It's not just that it can SAP your motivation or make you sort of fat and lazy, these sort of these tropes about stoners. It's that if you use too much, especially at a young age, if you started a young age, if you start in your teens, your early to mid teens and you use heavily. And it is addictive, so people will, you know, a lot of people wind up using more than they think they're going to use. You can have psychotic episodes, and you can sometimes some people probably people with a genetic predisposition, although it's not always clear, may develop permanent psychosis, a permanent psychotic condition known as
The Connection Between Violent Crime and Marijuana Usage
"I got Sean sent me an article about marijuana usage in its residual effects. And just because, you know, correlation denied always mean causation, but at least you have the facts and understanding, you know, according to an article called cannabis causes psychosis, a psychosis caused violence written by a gentleman, a doctor named Alex berenson on May 25th in an article he describes some of the correlations between marijuana usage and violent criminals. Mister, I don't like even like to say the guy's name, but it was confirmed that the shooter and Yuval di had issues with using marijuana. Don't know how much he used, but he was upset because his grandmother and mother allegedly would not let him use marijuana. Nicholas Cruz, which is a Florida high school shooter, was heavily used in marijuana, and that's what he told the police in the police interview. Devin Patrick Kelly, who shot up a Texas church and killed 26 people on 2017 before, you know, obviously killing himself had a THC in his system when he died, Darryl Brooks junior last seen allegedly racing through the walk of Christmas parade, self described as a stoner and here's some statistical data that may become relevant. It says, meanwhile, the cities like Portland, Oregon, have suffered an explosion in violence, following the legalization of cannabis.
Pastor Che Ahn Stood Up Boldly When California Shut Down Churches
"Hey there folks, I'm excited when I get to talk to somebody that is not just a friend, but somebody I think who has been a hero. My guest right now is past your che on of Southern California. He has written a book called turning our nation back to God through historic revival. I happen to know it's a good book because I read it and I wrote the forward to it. Past your che, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric is an honor to be with you and love you and love your program. Well, I love you because I respect you. You stood up in California. I want to tell my audience about that before we get to the book. The book is turning our nation back to got through historical revival, but you stood up boldly when the governor in California was trying to shut down churches. And I know we've talked a little bit about this on the program before, but for people just tuning in, they don't know you. They don't know that there are many really heroic pastures in California that stuck the next south. They said, we're going to fight. Mike McClure is one of them. I was just at his church in San Jose, rob McCoy, Jack hibbs, but you are the one that I have known the longest. Tell us what happened to you because you do talk about it in the book. Well, originally, when president Trump said 30 days of mitigation, we didn't know what this coronavirus was about. So we locked down for 30 days. But then we begin to notice that other places work declared essential. And so things were opening up right after that at 30 day period. But not the church. So marijuana dispensaries were declared essential, abortion clinics were declared essential. Of course, Walmart and Costco and the grocery stores were declared essential. And later on, strip clubs were declared essential casinos were considered essential, but their church was locked down. You notice this. Most people notice that this was crazy. The point is, you are the pastor of a big church, and you said, this is wrong. And we're going to do something about

Jason Pye and Doug Chat About Alabama's Parole Board
"Board shot down every single case, denying relief to 28 eligible people. Including this man, Michael bettis, he said, he is serving. He has served, hear me, served 12 of 20 year sentence for marijuana possession and distribution. He served 12. He sat at a minimum security work center where they worked him for $2 a day. Turned him down. Now is costing you folks in just to let you know out there. Probably upwards of between 50. I mean, 15 and $30,000 to house him for a year. The older he gets, the more expensive that gets. Okay? This is the part that is really, I think if we emphasize this kind of. Now, I'm not going to go into because again, to get a 12 of 20, it's marijuana possession and distribution. You know how those chargers will work. But there's nothing else here that indicates that the 12 years is not more than sufficient to have him even on supervised probation, whatever it may be. But to get him out. But they turned out all 28 eligible, not a one. I mean, is this the case where honestly the headlines are affecting what should be non attributable boards. I don't know of a better way to put that. I don't want to say partisan because in a way they are, but are political boards. I mean, what would a call something like this? And again, they might come out that there's something you need to, but he wouldn't be now think about this folks. He wouldn't be eligible for parole. If they had to not satisfied everything else in his sentences, taken into his past to get the sentence that he's currently under. It's kind of mind boggling because I think I'm not trying to be mean here. I am from Georgia. But this is Alabama, which is, which is a notoriously tough state when it comes to when it comes to crime. But even Alabama has taken some steps in the right direction when it comes to prison reform. I mean, I remember there was a state I think state senator cam ward there who helped usher through Alabama's prison reforms back in, I don't know, 6, 7, 8 years ago. And that was at the time when DoJ had followed lawsuit over prison conditions in Alabama. But it's unfortunate. And it's frustrating because there had to be one person deserving of some sort of parole who they
"marijuana." Discussed on The Brookings Cafeteria
"I'm david wessel. And this is my economic update. Covert nineteen was of course primarily public health disaster in the us alone. It has killed more than six hundred thousand people. It was an economic disaster as well when it was met with a forceful response from congress. President trump and biden and the federal reserve less visible to most americans the onset of the pandemic and march twenty twenty also highlighted. Some vulnerabilities in our financial system. Vulnerabilities that would have deepened. The recession had the fed not pumped one point five trillion dollars in march and april. Twenty twenty he keep the world's most important financial market the market for us treasury debt functioning. The simple story the current structure of the market for. Us treasuries is not robust enough to allow big money institutions to sell large amounts of treasuries at predictable prices when markets are under severe stress. Even though that is the precise reason these firms and funds hold treasuries and when the treasury market doesn't function credit flows to households businesses and governments are disrupted with serious consequences for the real economy as detailed in a recent report of our task force on financial stability the us and other countries short up the capital foundations and regulation of the regulated banks after the global financial crisis of two thousand eight nine as a result. Banks withstood the kovic shock. Well the problems were all in. What's sometimes called the shadow banking system or the less than you phony us. Nonbank financial system the markets institutions money managers funds that are increasingly large share of the flows of credit nar economy but are not as tightly. Regulated or supervised says the bax bond mutual funds clearing-houses for derivative life. Insurance companies itself variable annuity. Since our now this is not the sort of thing that the ordinary american worries about but failure to address the vulnerabilities in the shadow banking system put the whole economy. at risk. We learned the hard way back in two thousand eight nine that what happens in financial markets does not stay in financial markets the rapid growth of mutual funds that allow ordinary investors to buy into a portfolio of corporate bonds are one example. People put money into these mutual funds expecting to be able to take their money out instantly just as they take money out of their bank accounts but these funds hold bonds that rarely trade and when all the bond funds tried to sell holdings to raise cash to meet shareholders demand at once the prices those bonds fall in a fire sale and that makes it costly and maybe even impossible for businesses to borrow money. That's what happened in march twenty twenty and the fed again. The fed stepped in. It's good that the fed can and does move swiftly in times like these. It's good that we have fire departments but we also have building codes. Fire prevention systems.
"marijuana." Discussed on The Queen
"For the parent activists from atlanta. Peter bornes ouster with the opening. They needed to influence federal drug policy in the early days of the carter administration. Marsha keith. so hard had gotten aced out now. She's gordon invitation to the newly anti-marijuana white house where she made her pitch about how we'd damaging kids she hard brought a visual aid with her to washington a big pile of bonds when we got to the security gate. The guards opened. It said well. They're going to be a party up there today. In one thousand nine hundred ninety nine. The national institute on drug abuse published a booklet researched and written by xu hard. It was called parents peers pot. It told the story of her daughter's smoke-filled thirteenth birthday party and everything that came after the book was full of alarming claims like that marijuana might cause enlarged breasts and adolescent boys government scientists found shoe hearts pros hyperbolic but the public ate it up. You know after million copies were ordered. They stopped printing it because they said we have too many orders. This is how the government can work when ronald nancy. Reagan moved into the white house and nineteen eighty one. The parent activists became even more influential. I said mrs reagan. You know. I have to be frank with you. I'm a democrat. I'm even the l word and she licked me. Said what do you mean. I said a liberal. She just burst out laughing. Said we're all in this together. It's a nonpartisan movement. I had to give credit for that. Marijuana usage peaked in america in nineteen seventy nine then fell in every age category in the nineteen eighty s and decriminalization. It's stopped cold a few months before. Peter bourne resigned the white house drug czar nebraska became the eleven th state to decriminalize marijuana. No other states followed suit in the next two decades. Peter bourne is eighty one years old now. He splits his time between northern virginia and a farm in wales where he and his wife raise llamas. Only in the carter administration. I thought you know everything's going in the right way with marijuana. Then you know it. All took a complete turn. I would have never guessed that. Were you the most progressive drug czar out of all of them. I fall seventeen years after he resigned. Keith drop got rehired as normals executive director. He's now the group's legal counsel at seventy seven years old strop now sees the world. He always imagine. Beginning to take shape in virginia where he lives. It's legal for adults twenty one and older to possess consume and grow small amounts of marijuana at the end of our interview. He invited me to come over and light one up some time. Strop his sad batting out. Peter bourne was the stupidest decision he ever made. He says the last time they ran into each other was eight or ten years ago at a cocktail party. I think we might have chatted for a minute. You know i mean. I could tell he was a little uncomfortable. Didn't know quite how he should respond to me. I was certainly trying to be civil to him in neither of us tried to make a move to say you want to get a beer sometime or you wanna you know that that i think we both recognize that We had passed that point of no return a long time ago. How much do you blame keith. Strap for your downfall well. That's a good question. I suppose quite laut born told me that back then. He didn't understand what stop was doing why he'd been so outraged and paranoid and hell bent on destroying what had been a productive partnership but now born says.

Good judgment. I don't doubt that cocaine had something to do with it. Shirk one of the things. You get very ragged. When you're doing cocaine you get irritable. Sometimes you get angry on things that would make you angry. Otherwise the cocaine use was not helpful. I don't think i can use it as an excuse but it probably did cause. My responses could be exaggerated at times. Keith's drop and peter bourne will never agree about what happened in that private room at the normal christmas party. But here there's something approaching consensus. Mr marijuana dropped the dime on the drug czar for doing cocaine because he himself was doing too much cocaine and that is how the pro pot movement of the nineteen seventy.

"Sixties and strop was at georgetown law. School in washington dc. His main concern was avoiding the vietnam war. Strap it thought about getting a psychiatrist to say that he was gay which would have disqualified him from the armed forces but his wife vetoed that idea in the end. He steered clear of military service by getting a government job. Stop work for the national commission on products safety as a lawyer on the commission he learned to do the kind of consumer advocacy work made famous by ralph. Nader one can imagine what would happen if people could see what goes into their processed food products or they could see the enormous price fixing that goes on in the petroleum industry. He he seemed incredibly sincere and committed. It was clear that he was trying to improve. The country improves the world. We all live in by the way. I should make it clear. Ralph nader the one thing. He's not is he's not a stoner. I doubt ralph has ever had a marijuana cigarette in his mouth keith. Strap had a marijuana cigarette in his mouth all the time in one thousand nine hundred seventy. He turned that habit into a career. He was going to advocate for marijuana smokers. Just as ralph nader took up for consumers are group goal. The national organization for the reform of marijuana laws quickly called a news conference and produced experts of its own at first stops. Lobbying group got treated as a curiosity but he was tireless and charismatic. And he knew what he wanted to achieve straps ultimate goal was to make we'd legal in the us. In the meantime he pushed for a smaller more practical step decriminalization. We're really trying to stop the practice of making criminals out of people who smoke marijuana. Our social policies should be one where we recognize. That drugs are going to be used but we direct our society away from the most harmful drugs like alcohol and tobacco that we know are addicted and towards the drugs. If they're going to use drugs at all which are least harmful. America's harsh marijuana laws dated back to the early twentieth century when they'd been enacted to target black and mexican americans as the demographics of marijuana users changed so did the drugs reputation in nineteen sixty nine life magazine published photos of white professionals and cocktail attire token if young otherwise law abiding and essentially white people were going to start using this drug in greater numbers. People felt that they didn't want to then burden these individuals with a criminal record. Emily duffin is the author of grassroots the rise and fall and rise of marijuana in america. You know this person's probably going to go on to have a family and a white picket fence and do we really want to destroy their future for a little bit of harmless fun harmless or not. Marijuana was still illegal and if you got caught in the wrong place doing the wrong thing. The consequences could be extremely severe when don crow was convicted of selling marijuana to an undercover agent. There seemed reason for hope. It was his first offense after all in the amount had been small less than one ounce what the jury saw student sentenced fifty years in prison. You could get a sense of outrage. That they were locking up some poor young child who had committed some nonviolent marijuana fence that caused a lot of people to think. Maybe marijuana prohibition was a policy that needed review plenty of americans believed that time. Marijuana offenders weren't really offenders at all and so under the right circumstances the country might have been on a path to decriminalization in the late sixties and early seventies but there was one very important person standing in the way. America's public enemy number one is drug abuse in order to fight and defeat this enemy. It is necessary to wage a new all out offensive. Richard nixon saw marijuana as a tool of his enemies liberals young people vietnam protesters and in nixon's america. Those enemies needed to be police. In nineteen hundred seventy. He signed the federal controlled substances act which put drugs into five different categories or schedules. The most restrictive category schedule one was for drugs. That were totally outlawed even for medical use heroin. Lsd and marijuana marijuana's placement in schedule. One had to be reviewed by a commission that commission was stacked with nixon. Appointees now nixon thinks that this is going to be a slam dunk. It causes untold damage to the population. It's going to ruin generations of children. It should absolutely be outlawed van schedule line or or worse so when all those nixon appointees weighed the evidence. They did something surprising. They argue that. This drug isn't that bad. The federal recommendations are as follows. First possession for personal use is no longer a criminal. offense second. Nonprofit distribution of small amounts should no longer be a criminal offence. Richard nixon heated those recommendations so he ignored them. Nixon kept marijuana as a schedule. One drug which it still is today and marijuana arrests kept increasing every year he was in office but nixon wasn't all powerful lawmakers around the country read the commission's report and found a persuasive and they began realizing that they had the capacity to change marijuana laws on the local level. And that's what began to happen. The state of oregon was on penalties for those caught with small amounts of marijuana oregon was the first state to decriminalize marijuana and nineteen seventy-three by nineteen. Seventy six six more states had done it and a bunch of others look like they were moving in that direction but for american marijuana policy to get remade the federal government would have to be onboard. There we need to be a new voice in washington someone with liberal views. Who is savvy enough to wield real political power. Someone like peter born. We'll be back in a minute support for this.

Today i come out of a public health background if people die. That's a bad thing if they do things and it doesn't cause them to lie. Can't be that bad. I mean that's the summation of my philosophy.

It's a really old buildings. Oh good because it sounds like a train. So that's really but Yeah it's like. I don't think i'm the first person who thought through pandemic and the building. It's like a tiny apartment. It's mind i love it but like our place is really nice. I had a lot more spending money. When i was living with my ex A lot more security. Yeah so it was really scary to take that job. But i don't regret it. And now i was. I was fortunate enough to be able to do a tour with a theater company and do like it was kind of a it was kind of sad but it was kind of Just like a one person piece about leaving him. I'm trying to make it into something that's sixty minutes. Long with only like fifteen part of it was like cabaret show able to toured around but there are a lot of women who came up to me who told me that i gave that confidence so i get out of a bad situation which is so humbling and feel so good Yeah yeah no. I was like we're dying. That i kind of. Yeah no. i'll tell you something else. So and i can almost promise this is like i mean it's it sounds. It's pretty clear that you think your current in socks compared to the old one and telling me about the radiators that sound like trains. And i feel like when you say you're not the first person lived through a pandemic here that indicates that you think there are also people suffering this place in nineteen eighteen. But i bet. I bet i just encourage you to also take a deep breath and enjoy it and smile when you come home and when those radiators are like blast and so loud they wake you up and they hope you remember this and laugh. 'cause i bet in ten years you're gonna look back and go. Living in. that apartment was one of the best areas of my life based on what you got out of and what you're headed towards right now that's the best. the best. The fresh aliens says the frustrating years as an artist before you take that leap into the more intimidating scene whether that's a new city or within your city so stress for confusing but you're also living such a fun life even though it's onboard word there's no security and i hope you enjoy it more than i enjoyed those times in my own experience because i would kill i would kill to be back in a bar drinking my ginger ale while my friends.

Whip so essentially when i got beat by the police episode fired. Check it out. I can sue the officers personally. Sue the police department. Because of qualified immunity it's a legal doctrine which prevents was actually an extra shield of buffer for police officers right knowing that they can't get sued civilly for their indiscretions which is yes. Oh police reform bills are trying to end. That clyburn came out and said he's in favor of compromising and not including removal of qualified immunity in a bill. In order to proceed. He literally said if if you don't get qualified immunity now then we'll come back and try to get it later but i don't want to see us throughout a good bill because we can't get a perfect bill. It's not a good bill. If you don't remove the say it's not a good bill well and it. I miss going down that path to this whole thing two. You've heard about the whole wondering cop situation right no okay. So in essence. The idea is that if a policeman or a police person. I don't know what the but the police april police person. You have to drink water all over. Your face is wrong with you anyway. If an officer the law were to be put on probation or quote unquote loser. Position of based on something they did they could quite easily just moved to another division within the police department and continue along. It's called the wandering place. It's a situation where you don't actually get fired. You can just kind of get retest if you will also even more so i. I'd never heard that term but it makes sense even when you get fired. The coffee get hired other police as yet because they don't do correct you can still be a policeman in a bunch of places an officer. Sorry and a bunch of places or you can just get another position.

"marijuana." Discussed on Real Talk Over Riesling
"Good okay now that I've gathered myself that we're not behaving completely ridiculously. We wanted to speak really honestly about how to move forward from here like now that we often talk about issues. Were really clear about the stigma with marijuana and how we feel and we talked a little bit our own personal use. How do we work to de stigmatize marijuana and so for me? One of the first things that we need to do is educate. We need to educate ourselves and other people about the stigma behind marijuana and also marijuana use during pregnancy and postpartum yep. I think that it's really a part. It's like people their stuff that people say to me about marijuana that is just like they just actually don't know. Oh yeah absolutely. I mean it's our responsibility to not only educate ourselves because a lot of times we don't have a full grasp on the advantages. You know we don't. We don't always know everything but we need to do a better job at educating people and having more in depth conversations about certain things because they don't know either. Yeah maybe no one has taken the time to have that conversation with them and we need to start being in the people to take the time to have the conversation A. Yeah because that's actually how you shift culture. It's Bhai like one person at a time kind of having a conversation and making sure that people know things that they previously did it yes. I think we'll help people kind of change their attitudes towards marijuana and MOMS in particular they use marijuana and so the second thing That I think is really important. About de stigmatizing is to talk about it openly. Which I think is what we did here today right. It's definitely showed it openly talked about it openly. Use their openly. Every all of that. Yes absolutely because it's just like if everybody keeps hush hush quiet like something that's dangerous or like at something that's bad then it's going to continue to feel like somebody's doing something bad or trying to hide something and so the more that we speak openly about our marijuana use to each other and to other people. It's really what's going to help us move forward and kind of change. The conversation once people start openly sharing that they use marijuana which is a lot of people Then it will become more normalized and normalizing I think is a step towards stigmatisation huge. And it's also you know you always hear about like again. I talked about my enjoyment with rolling my blends. I had to do the fingers. I was getting excited. But you notice we incorporated a whole vibe young. You know what I mean. It's not only smoking weed by. It's literally like this is like kick you what your girl totally in the living room. Josh shows like marijuana usage has yes. It's nine we'd guy with the girl that gets called. Sandy buyer kids okay. There are other avenues are other ways. Yes vapes there's there are so many different ways to enjoy it. Yes and not be corny. Like your body. We're also if you're already a marijuana user and try other things because other drugs are also fun. Maybe for another day for another days. We'll talk about those in Benghazi him alive yes and last but not least and maybe actually more importantly to the conversation of the stigmatize marijuana is to fucking get people free. Get people out of jail. Marijuana has been criminalised so heavily for so long that there is a big big swath of the population. That's incarcerated over marijuana right now and a part of the work of De Stigmatizing. Marijuana is to make sure that all of the people who are locked up. I mean for this reason and for other reasons. Yeah we'll talk about that another episode. It belongs jail that those people get out of jail and so you need to find your local abolitionist and you need to start organizing and doing the work of getting people out of jail. And that's going to be one of the most important steps in basically de stigmatizing Marijuana use particularly among black mothers black mothers yeah. And that's what we're here for so I enjoyed this girl. This was fine. We destroyed this dish. I'm totally looking at. It's fucking gone is gone. Bell-bottoms has done all of we all of the hunting. All the TVs the honey. Shout out to my plug saying again. You said this is a woman. See this this is what my dealer is a woman. This is what we see again yet. Another point to be made okay. There are so many progressions happening when we made the industry like it just should be normalized in a sense like we stood for so much. Today we stood to show you how you can still be semi responsible How drag this? And then now you women in we'd yet which is made women first of all women been we'd we'd been in. Us We've been in it is just one cosmic flow honey. I'm kidding okay. First of all can't pretty yes into whatever was said. I'm so sorry I forgot. I'm like all mcgrew. We just we were together. We thought we were pulling together point of the matter. Is You know this whole matter. Is Women need to pave a bigger way for themselves? We've been paved the way. Yeah okay literally taking things by storm but this whole conversation just goes to show like females women moms all females females females. You're you're fucked boy. She's the fuck she said.

"And I'M KENDRA. And this is rail talk over releasing so uncork your bottle pull up a chair and poor up a glass because today we're GONNA be talking about marijuana marijuana mama so I feel like this episode is huge number one. Because let's talk about what we have right here girl. Yes so I mean we're GONNA be talking about weed so we definitely need some company as we're talking about it so today we are going to be having the infamous. Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet is the most popular red wine in the entire world. And because it's a bold red wine it really goes well with hard aged cheeses and so today. We have a smoked cheddar cheese and we also have a manchego cheese and because we would be wrong to not have weed on the we'd episode we actually have. Thc infused honey drizzled on top of the Manchego. So we're GONNA hi. Yes I'm already high. I came ready so I'm already high. The reason why hunting on the Manchego and not on the twitter is because the Montana was salty cheese and so it tastes really well and really balanced when you put honey over it so this is what we have accompanying today. I'm excited I can't wait. I hope it hits me like a ton of bricks. I don't know what to expect but I'm excited about it. Okay let's get high then period so I want to talk a little bit about marijuana And why it's so stigmatized right. And so I think that for Ashley and I were really curious to talk about the stigma for mothers and in particular black mothers around smoking weed and getting high and so- marijuana up until the nineteen thirties. I WANNA say was actually not legal. It was pretty normal that nobody really cared about it but the folks at the DA or at some other government office people love for drugs decided that they because they were seeing an influx of Mexicans that they wanted to tie marijuana drug to the Mexicans. And that's when reefer madness started as from the thirties. All the way to the seventies people thought that marijuana was making people crazy am made Mexican men thirsty for White woman blood verbatim and even in the seventies when folks found out that marijuana was actually not causing any of that exactly. The government decided that they wanted to start the war on drugs and so even though they knew that marijuana was not dangerous they decided to prosecute it either way and so for me. I think that a lot of the stigma comes from the fact that black people have been incarcerated over drug use for so long bad. There's just kind of like an ongoing lingering stigma behind it and it's really hard for us to get past that. Oh Yeah I feel like a huge thing is you know and this episode is is pretty important to do is there is still a stigma associated with marijuana. Although you know who doesn't smoke weed it feels like we're do edibles for some some type of something. Everyone's doing it. But why is it just that when it comes to black people we are just seen as like the others? Oh absolutely you know what I mean. I mean there is a marijuana mom. It's huge and if you look it up online pops up everywhere but all of the women are white. All of the on by MOMS and EV. They you know they wear their little. We'd t shirts to pick up their kids from school. And they're all in the cannabis business and some of them. Just smoke weed for fun. And it's a really big community but don't ever see us represented in that and so there's being kind of like a big push to normalize it for everybody else except for black women but there is hope. There's another podcast by a black woman that's called the the blunt the blunt token Mama. Oh and all. She talks about his shot. One Mama and if I got that name wrong we're GONNA put it in video and you'll be able to find her but I read an article that she was talking about and it was. It was the same thing she was just like looking at us like. We don't see any black women who were looking. We'd who are talking about parenting but there is a big community of mothers who smoke weed. I'm a part of a mom group and the MOM group has a bunch of subgroups on facebook. And one of the subgroups is the MOMS who yeah right and so it is normalized at other places. Look for some reason in the black community like black. Mothers are seen as not being good parents fit for some reason or another and I said Okay. We decriminalize marijuana in Massachusetts. Two Thousand Eight. I didn't even realize yes exactly. Sixteen recreational marijuana use became legal. And I said I didn't even realize like the timeframe from the decriminalization all the way up until this point that it's now seen as legal however it's like. It's still doesn't really feel legal for me. I don't know how to I mean I've been smoking weed since I've been smoking. Okay legal and I was out here. Smoke alita plays. I had no business. You know I was making it work. I still feel like even with all these changes like black moms smoking weed out somewhere just still feels wrong to me like it feels like. I need to make sure I'm in my house rolling up a blunt where nobody could see and I hate that feeling because I go out and like you said I see white moms. They don't have their kids and I might side but they're all you know. They're friends outside of bars in there. Smoking Weed and light people are walking past them up. No big deals everything but I see a group of black women and smoking weed right. That's a bunch of ghetto birds. That's a bunch of ghetto. And I said you know what I don't want people walking past me getting that impression even though I know it's not me but there still is like you said that stigma and I said DM. I feel like I'm like propelling the stigma because obviously I'm not doing anything to break out of it But at the same time I'm like this you don't WanNa be the ghetto birdie. Degi to pave the way for the rest. You know what I mean so I I really feel like you said. There's that catch twenty two but I don't think that we're doing ourselves a service by allowing these Canada MOMS in their groups to take over really exactly act like they're the ones paving the way for other moms says says keep going. I'm about to get to it but I'm high right and that's the point because nobody honestly I'm about to start having some of this thc. But what I off now all right we get into again into because usually we always have some fun so now we're high while you're high and I want to get high so let's have some fun. Okay what's your favorite thing about weed? Since we're having this whole conversation that.
"marijuana." Discussed on InPennyStock | Penny Stock Trader
"Hope you're doing well today. I WanNa talk about a very special topic. That's super important in breaking not right now. which is how to properly invest in marijuana stocks? Okay there's a few key steps that I would recommend anyone doing in order to understand the landscape right regardless and I say this often but would what the lessons I try to teach our regardless of your background and experience. Okay so whenever I talk about these socks. I try to think about it from a first time trader perspective. So if you're in your twenties thirties forties whatever whatever age you are if you have traded or haven't in this episode. I'm GonNa talk about how to invest in marijuana stocks. Okay pot stocks cannabis stocks. It's it's all kind of the same general realm and it's super important nowadays because of the crazy amount of growth that's able to happen in that industry all right and being. CPA and also being a VP finance in one of the top companies in the industry able to have a first hand experience. It's an outlook on the space right. I'm dealing with these public companies all the times different. MSL's which multi state operators and different ancillary Lurie top public companies in space. So this isn't investment advice in any means you know talk to your financial advisor this is purely just a methodology eh and inability for me to be able to explain to you guys how you can look into investing into marijuana stocks. Okay so the first step is understanding that. At least two different variations of cannabis stocks. All right because a lot of times people get confused and hear all these these different terminology so there's medical and recreational marijuana right and even in that scenario that'll be that'll be split into two different scenarios but say in the United States right. There's probably about thirty three states. Roughly right now out of fifty obviously where medical marijuana is legal meaning doctors offers and healthcare institutions hospitals are able to prescribe medical marijuana to their patients so they consuming it. You know it's user for example depression Whatever is proper medicine that's legal and is allowed to be utilized for those patients. And then what's happening now is that there's probably about ten states in the United States where it's recreationally legal and so people are starting to feel that eventually it's going to be legal across the United States which will then have all the other countries follow as well and that will allow for a massive massive increase in the market cap or in the worldwide spending on cannabis. Alright is already you know. There's reports by the ARC view market research in Beedi SNL Worldwide spending on cannabis was around twelve billion in two thousand eighteen. And just a few years later is going to be about thirty three to thirty six billion. So it's looking at. The industry might double or increase raced by one hundred percent year after year. Essentially and so that's why becomes such an attractive market are you can almost look at this like the dot com era so just how many people are rich in the DOT COM era. There was also a ton of people that tried to hold onto longer. Got Too greedy. And that's what we're here here at Penny stock to help you avoid to help you be able to be on the profitable side of the trading. Okay so going back to. The tube hooped types of marijuana. Yes there's medical recreational but one thing I would definitely make clear of is that there's your thc. which is the actual growers right? The actual psychoactive plant. That makes you go. Hi and then there's the CBC portion of it all right the CD. Portion is the one that doesn't have any psychoactive collective properties all right and has several health benefits. And it's used to treat epilepsy. Different syndromes if medicines sins and so you'll find that's Charlotte's web if you hear that term or hemp that is all in its own sector so in future episodes breakout specifically specifically the differences. But just keep that in mind as you look to invest in this space right now you should see. Is that a lot of the Times. The the the space of cannabis itself has very particular elements. But fortunately the great thing about the space is that there's not a massive massive amount of players are right. There's about fifty public companies. Am I sound like a lot. But if you research the industry for about a few weeks so even a month or so you'll be able to have a really really good grasp of the space. And that's a rare of other spaces where there's hundreds if not thousands of companies unease and you can't really get a grasp on all the names all of the different companies that are involved right so definitely recommend and to be able to figure out where the publicly traded candidates stocks are. You can use different stock. Screeners like fin viz or a great website that I use and I'm not affiliated with with them in any way but it's just a resource an APP on my phone. That kind of keeps me up to date with the sector and the reason it's important for me is because I'm a VP APIA finance in industry in the realm. So it's a little bit more important for me to stay on. Top of all of the changes and all of the financing or financial financial news in the space and so that website is new cannabis ventures DOT COM and. It's just a great Khan website or even as it has iphone apps that I have just gives me notifications on a daily basis in a one or two big pieces of news or headlines that have happened in the space or like when companies reporting earnings. How they're doing. And so you can see you know. Just scrolling on it right now. The big companies. Gti Tilt Holdings I- antics. They're all reporting high levels of growth millions and millions of dollars of growth and they're also raising millions of dollars of funds. So you can see that back doc. It's an exciting space. There's a lot of room for growth all right some of the most popular ones. I just want to kind of list Out so you have heard it and you'll see it. More and more is a canopy growth right that stock ticker symbol. CG See Aurora Cannabis this Cronos Group till Ray GTI which I mentioned before stands for Green Thumb Industries ton of Charlotte's web which is a CD. Dd One I mentioned CRESCO Labs Madman enterprises you've probably you're in the coastal regions of New York or La.. You know you'll probably have heard of them. But fortunately there is not a crazy large amount of these types of stocks. And so you're able to have an understanding of it you know there's the actual Growers or retailers. There's the biotech portion so like all the pharmaceutical companies in the space say just GW pharmaceuticals That's on that's actually listed on the Nasdaq with the stock ticker symbol. Gwp H. M.. But yeah I mean that is kind of the core elements of the marijuana space right. How to invest in marijuana stocks and different pot stocks to watch. You wanted to be wary that this industry is still emerging. There's a lot navolato eating a lot of rules and now what recently happened. And I'm GonNa just going to be an opinion piece of advice but in November about midway through November of two thousand nineteen eighteen. There was a bill passed through the house in the United States. Congress saying that. There's going to be a legalization or that. They're approving the legalization of marijuana on the federal level. Now that gave a lot of rally to the recent stocks and people are getting very gung ho about it personally. I don't feel that it will pass the Senate given that the Senate currently is Republican owned and there's a majority is Republicans so I think it's going to fail there but it's still it's still shows was that the country is moving in that direction and that you can kind of set yourself up to be able to be in a favorable position once the legislation has actually passed on on it because once it becomes federally legal federally legal than you know. There's no cap to this. Then you're going to see all of these companies five or ten x And the real ones obviously are the ones that are going to be able to grow the false ones. That are just kind of trying to ride the hype. They'll get exposed and die out. It happens in every company in every realm. So or you're going to want to do is really do. I wouldn't necessarily say this is a technical analysis play which is usually when I recommend so in this scenario recommend actually looking at the fundamentals of the candidates stocks right look at take five. Everton or like an a one or two hour course on how to analyze financial statements and you'll get an understanding of okay being able to seize this company just massively in debt and about to run out of money or very profitable and they're growing in a very sustainable fashion right.
