Weed This Week LIVE: The Good, Bad, and Ugly of Marijuana Legalization

On the first episode of my cannabis news show “Weed This Week LIVE” I talked about the ups and downs of latest efforts to reform marijuana laws across the United States, was joined by Princess of Pot Jodie Emery to discuss the latest on her husband Marc’s 5-year prison term in the USA, and got really high.

Tune in to Cannabis Culture on Friday’s at 4pm PST for new LIVE episodes.

Episode 1 was broadcast LIVE to the Internet from our smoky Cannabis Culture office at CCHQ in Vancouver on Saturday, November 13.

CLICK HERE to go to the “Weed This Week” USTREAM page or watch video from other LIVE CC webcasts. Go here to sign up for USTREAM so you can chat with us during the show.

I’m in the process of setting up the “Weed This Week” iTunes Feed, so ya’ll can download the show straight to your iPod or iPhone; I’ll post the link here soon.

As I said during the webcast, I’m not a Communications major and I’m probably not qualified to be hosting a weekly show, but what the Hell! The first episode was fun and we got through the latest headlines, our 4:20 smoke session, discussion with Jodie, and news about current legalization efforts without too many technical difficulties.

Seems like an hour is about the perfect length for this kind of a show, and in the future I’ll feature interviews with cannabis newsmakers, chat with (and possibly even take calls from) viewers, and take even bigger rips from the bong…

    Law enforcement spends far too many resources unjustly targeting the modest, recreational user of marijuana, often with dire consequences for good citizens. For a dramatic and page-turning look at this issue, check out the novel STASH published by Random House at http://www.bydavidklein.com.
