Cannabis Common Sense #260

Hemp News with Paul Stanford covers each week’s news on cannabis. Then Dr. Phillip Leveque, D.O., Ph.D., a physician and retired medical school professor of pharmacology and toxicology, Paul Loney, an attorney, and Don Dupay, a social worker and retired Portland Police detective, join Stanford to take viewers’ phone calls. Dr. Leveque discusses the suspension the day before of Leveque’s medical license by Oregon’s Board of Medical Examiners for helping medical marijuana patients. Paul Loney, who appeared with Dr. Leveque before the BME, also discusses Leveque’s situation. We have a humorous edited video clip of US President George W. Bush and an excerpt from a new video, The Hash Man. Hemp News: Canada considers licensing cannabis through pharmacies; the US government’s new drug strategy calls for drug testing of all school children and for the “compassionate coercion” of cannabis users; and the US goverment launches a second wave of arrests of pipe and smoking accessories businesses.
