Cannabis Culture News LIVE: Cannabis Roots Conference Explores Hidden History of Marijuana

POT TV – Watch Cannabis Culture News LIVE for the latest news and views on pot politics and the marijuana community. In this episode: Chris Bennett, creator of the upcoming Cannabis Roots: The Hidden History of Marijuana conference in Vancouver, will join the program to discuss the details of the event, which features some of the world’s leading experts in the history of entheogenic drug use.

NOTICE: Unfortunately, the second part of our interview with Mark Klokeid was eaten by Livestream (the recording did not work properly). Mark has promised to come back soon to do another update for those who didn’t watch it live.

Bennett has written several books on drug use and spirituality, including Green Gold the Tree of Life: Marijuana in Magic and Religion (1995); Sex, Drugs, Violence and the Bible (2000); and Cannabis and the Soma Solution (2010).

Also on the show: Activist and filmmaker Mark Klokeid will join the program to discuss his recent trip to China, where he recorded footage of an ancient mummy of a shaman who used cannabis as a religious sacrament. The footage will be used in an upcoming documentary (made in collaboration with Bennett) about the long history of cannabis use for religious or spiritual purposes.

Jodie Emery, publisher of Cannabis Culture and Pot TV joins the show to discuss Justin Trudeau’s bid for Liberal Party leader and her imprisoned husband Marc Emery’s latest CC blog.
