Episode 302 – No Relief for Legal Cannabis

A rough concrete wall is seen close up with a metal address circle sign plate set in with an engraved '42'. The number has been crudely drawn over with black marker and a '0' has been added to create '420'.

Andrew Livingston and first-time guest Sarah Gersten of the Last Prisoner Project join host Kris Krane to talk about the exclusion of legal marijuana businesses- even ancillary companies- from receiving federal relief from the coronavirus pandemic, as well a check-in on the Marijuana Primary, with Democratic candidate Joe Biden now lined up to battle Trump in November. Produced by Shea Gunther.
