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.

Episode 323 – The Passage of Ruth Bader Ginsberg

The U.S. Supreme Court is seen backed by a bright sun and a blue sky with wisps of white clouds. The flag flies at half mast to honor Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A group of people sits to pay tribute amongst a large collection of signs and flowers left behind by mourners and well-wishers. The masks that people wear help mark the day. It's subtle and easy to miss, but one of the women standing to honor RGB has a cute dog in a front dog-carrier that she is wearing. The dog appears to be looking at the camera.

Betty Aldworth and first-time guest Diane Russell join host Heather Sullivan to talk about the recent passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, the ongoing wildfires out west and their impacts on this year’s cannabis harvest, as well as National Expungement Week. Produced by Shea Gunther.

Episode 322 – No More MORE Act

The sun peaks out from behind the skyline as it sets. It casts a warm yellow light over the landscape below- which looks to be a dry mountainous desert. The center of the image has a bush breaking up the light of the sun into distinct rays.

Kris Krane and first-time guests AJ Herrington and Jimmy Levy join host Ben Larson to talk about the recent death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the just-announced delay of a vote on the MORE Act in the U.S. House, and the impacts of the ongoing wildfires burning up the west. Produced by Shea Gunther.
