Cannabis Common Sense #249

Hemp News with Paul Stanford covers each week’s big stories on cannabis. Then Dr. Phillip Leveque, D.O., Ph.D., a physician and retired medical school professor of pharmacology and toxicology, and Don Dupay, a social worker and retired Portland Police detective, join Paul to take viewers’ phone calls. We have a film clip about Amersterdam’s cannabis cup from a movie called “Weed,” and another very funny clip from a 1968 anti-marijuana film with Sonny Bono (don’t have a bummer). Hemp News: marijuana and the Portland Trailblazers basketball team; a Florida man gets 12 joints a day from the US federal government for 21 years now; Canada denies Steve Kubby asylum from US, but Steve appeals the ruling; Ottawa is making it a green Christmas for 4,000 people — it plans to stay thousands of charges of pot possession as a result of legal battles over medicinal marijuana.
