Cannabis Culture News LIVE: Washington State Campaigns Compete to Legalize Pot in 2012

CANNABIS CULTURE – Watch Cannabis Culture News LIVE for the latest news and views on pot politics and the marijuana community. In this episode: We talk to activists in Washington State about simultaneous ballot initiative campaigns to legalize marijuana.

Cannabis Culture editor Jeremiah Vandermeer interviews Alison Holcomb, Campaign Director of New Approach Washington, about I 502, her group’s ballot initiative. 502 now has enough signatures to appear on the ballot before voters in November, but has come under fire from critics who say it doesn’t go far enough and runs the risk of abuse by law enforcement.

Douglas Hiatt of Sensible Washington will join the show to voice his concerns about I 502 and the New Approach campaign.

Washington activist Don Skakie jons us to talk about another bill fighting to make it on the ballot, the Cannabis Child Protection Act (no number yet).

Activist Mimi Meiwes joins the program to outline another bill competing for ballot space, the Washington Safe Cannabis Act (I 1208).

Activist and art dealer David Malmo-Levine will also visit the studio to show off a cannabis artifact from the Herb Museum in downtown Vancouver (in the same building as Pot TV, Cannabis Culture Magazine, CCHQ and the BCMP Lounge – 307 W. Hastings Street).

    How Alaska Initiated the Fight for Medical Freedom

    Story at-a-glance

    •Dr. Robert Rowen believes people are not turning their backs on orthodox medicine just because it’s too expensive. He believes people are increasingly searching for alternatives because it’s expensive AND it fails to heal. In the end, patients are both broke and sicker than ever before. People want real health, and are seeing through the false drug hype

    •The first statutory protection for natural medicine in the United States was created by Dr. Rowen in the state of Alaska in 1990. This law states that the medical board shall not find a doctor professionally incompetent solely on the basis that the licensee’s practice is unconventional or experimental in the absence of demonstrable, physical harm to a patient. Since then, about 14 other states have adopted similar legislation

    •Dr. Rowen believes that legislation must be implemented across the United States if we want to see any real change in the medical paradigm.
