Episode 321 – Taking Up The MORE Act

The U.S. Capitol building is seen just after sunset when the sky is all blue with not a touch of warm light to be seen. The view is from the side of the Capitol with a statue and reflection pool which shows a soft blurred image of the world above it. A handfull of people can be seen in small detail showing the scale of the full image.

Betty Aldworth and Ben Larson joins host Heather Sullivan to talk about the historic announcement of an upcoming House vote on the MORE Act, the vote this November out west on a number of cannabis issues, and the dip in the number of marijuana arrests in Texas following the federal legalization of industrial hemp. Produced by Shea Gunther.
