Cannabis Common Sense #267

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, and Don Dupay, a social worker and retired Portland Police detective, join Stanford to take viewers’ phone calls. We have a film clip of Paul demonstrating two vaporizers, the Vapor Brothers and the Volcano (more next week), another film clip of a poem from the leader of the band Fishbone about our favorite herb, and a promotion for the Million Marijuana March coming on May 1st. Hemp News: A judge ordered the federal government not to raid or prosecute a California group that grows and distributes marijuana for its sick members; the Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to review the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling in Raich vs. Ashcroft, which found that the federal ban does not apply to those who use cannabis for medical purposes on their doctors’ advice, obtain the medicine without buying it, and get it within their state’s borders.
