Episode 326 – The Supreme Court Says Nah

A cluster of 12 test tubes is seen against a blurred softly-lit background. The tubes appear almost as if they are baby birds- with a glass pipette poised above as if to offer food. The pipette has the barest hint of a clear liquid in its tip.

Returning guest Sam Chapman and first-timer Jeremy Berke join host Ben Larson to talk about the recent Supreme Court decision to not hear a medical marijuana rescheduling case; the latest developments for Measure 109, a psilocybin mushroom ballot measure in Oregon; and the current state of marijuana industry investing and some of the mechanisms used to start and fund cannabis companies. Produced by Shea Gunther.
