Weeducated Show Sixty Six – Nothing but News

Heyooooooooo! It’s time for an all new episode of Weeducated and this one brings big changes with it! We announce those changes on this episode but as you expect, we discuss a battery of stories from around the world. We report on a new story that may allow for cannabis on Mars…WHAT?! And the proposed changes to VA docs and their ability to recommend cannabis as a treatment option for our veterans. We also give a rundown of the grand total collected by Colorado in marijuana related taxes and business fees for 2014. And it’s a huge number….staggering even.

We debunk the crazy story that broke in the UK about super skunk and the claim that one in four new serious mental disorders is linked to cannabis. And on its heels, the story of the newsreader who tried cannabis for the first time and said it was worse than being in a war zone. We give you ammo to debunk both. Stupid yellow journalism. Get WEEDUCATED people! Speaking of getting Weeducated, we also cover the two new studies that show we don’t need to be as afraid of changes in brain structure or driving because of cannabis as the opposition would have you believe. And we leave off this episode by talking about some of the Cannabis Heroes that are out there fighting the good fight and changing minds…weeducating, if you will. You definitely want to hear this episode so go ahead and press play already!!

Weeducated Show Sixty Five – Keys to the Castle

It’s time for an all new episode of Weeducated! And we hope you’re in a good mood because this is a lighter episode than what you’re probably used to. The crew took the week off and left the keys to the studio with our amazing sound engineer, Mat. He really brings it with this best-of show with some great old content and some really hilarious new content. He introduces a new segment called stoner culture, which we’ve created to address those of you who love cannabis but are not medical patients. We think this may be the best, best-of show ever! Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

Cannabis Events – Show 64

So I think it’s funny. There are folks of the opinion that cannabis users are using to escape their reality. We’ve all heard it. But we also all know that we don’t escape with cannabis, we enhance. We choose cannabis because in many situations it makes an experience more complete. And this mentality is being born out in Colorado with all the ingenuity that has emerged. There were cannabis art events, cannabis movie theaters, cannabis bed and breakfasts…..But this one might just be my favorite….
cannabis events
CANNABIS. YOGA. Event better? They’re calling it Smyoga. Hilarious.
So awesome.
Also don’t forget about the Marijuana Investor Summit in April!

Now that the era of cannabis prohibition is finally coming to a close, the famous stoners of bygone eras are stepping away from their bongs, wandering out of their man caves and looking to cash in. Bob Marley’s descendants may be trying to brand a strain of weed named after the famed reggae singer, but L.A.’s own Tommy Chong is thinking a big more broadly. Yes, his own strain — “Chong Star” — is in the works.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Medical Marijuana in Arizona

play marijuana talk radio

PTSD has been added as a condition for which a patient may receive a medical marijuana patient card in Arizona. This will allow PTSD patients, as other patients to purchase up to 2.5 oz. of medical marijuana every two weeks from a state-licensed dispensary.

After more than a two year struggle, PTSD advocates finally persuaded Will Humble, Director of the Arizona Department of Health Services, that there is sufficient medical evidence to support the beneficial use of medical cannabis by PTSD suffers. PTSD joins CANCER, GLAUCOMA, POSITIVE STATUS FOR HUMAN IMMUNODEFICIENCY VIRUS, ACQUIRED IMMUNE DEFICIENCY SYNDROME, HEPATITIS C, AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS, CROHN’S DISEASE, AGITATION OF ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE, A CHRONIC OR DEBILITATING DISEASE OR MEDICAL CONDITION OR ITS TREATMENT THAT PRODUCES ONE OR MORE OF THE FOLLOWING: CACHEXIA OR WASTING SYNDROME; SEVERE AND CHRONIC PAIN; SEVERE NAUSEA; SEIZURES, INCLUDING THOSE CHARACTERISTIC OF EPILEPSY; OR SEVERE AND PERSISTENT MUSCLE SPASMS, INCLUDING THOSE CHARACTERISTIC OF MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, as conditions for which a person may receive a medical marijuana patient’s card.

cannabis radio

As you may already know, most medical marijuana patients claim “severe and chronic pain” as their qualifying condition. This is really not unexpected and I don’t know why mmj detractors seize on this statistic as a basis for claiming that the Arizona Medical Marijuana Program is a farce. There are thousands, if not millions of people in this country that suffer from “severe and chronic” back pain, as well as painful arthritis and other painful conditions. For years they have taken narcotics and other legal and illegal medications for their pain. Some have died from overdoses. Others blindly stare at the television all day. Some have become criminals in order to get their medications.

On the other hand, in the past three years I have met dozens of people that feel blessed by the fact that they are able to use medical cannabis instead of most, if not all of their narcotics. I don’t know what else to say: Wake up America! Medical Marijuana helps sick people! Why can’t we embrace this concept and regulate or legalize and tax this important medicine?

P.S. If you are a card holder or when you become one, it might be beneficial to review the list of qualifying conditions and see if you have other grounds for getting your card other than “chronic pain.” I did. It might help someone else some day.

This is attorney Jeff Kaufman for Weeducated Radio reminding you to carry your card. You can show it to the police, but never let them search your vehicle or home without a search warrant.

Cannabis News – Show 64

This is a jam-packed show and will definitely give you some great ammo for our continued fight against the war on cannabis. In this episode of Cannabis News, we talk all about the new educational campaign launched by MPP. It’s a whole new way to Get Weeducated and we love it! We also talk about the exciting changes likely to happen in Jamaica, with regards to cannabis. We also discuss the chances for D.C.’s cannabis initiative as Obama signed in a new budget that directly affects the funding available for Washington D.C. to implement the legalization measure. And if you’re in the mood for brain explosions, we’ve got you covered. We found a great little study that gives us a great talking point when the opposition says there just isn’t enough research, showing the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

MPP launches historic marijuana education campaign in states where it is now legal for adults.

marijuana talk radio

It’s time to get real about marijuana education.
For more than 80 years, marijuana education in the United States has largely been the product of government agencies and other organizations that staunchly support keeping marijuana illegal for all people and under any circumstances.
Not surprisingly, traditional marijuana education campaigns have been characterized by the same type of fear mongering, misinformation, and derision that led to the establishment of marijuana prohibition.
They have been intellectually dishonest and marked by unfounded and outrageous claims. They have exaggerated the potential harms of marijuana and omitted any discussion of its relative safety compared to alcohol and other legal and illegal substances. And they have alienated their target audiences with farcical ads and exploitation of stereotypes.
Most importantly, these traditional marijuana education campaigns — now commonly referred to as “anti-marijuana” education campaigns — have failed to prepare people for the scientific, sociocultural, and legal realities of marijuana in America.
Now that marijuana is a legal product like alcohol in some states — and on its way to becoming legal in others — it needs to start being treated that way. That’s where the Consume Responsibly campaign comes in.
Rather than ridiculing marijuana consumers or trying to convince them marijuana is more harmful than it actually is, our goal is to educate them about the substance, the laws surrounding it, and the importance of consuming it responsibly.

Major Changes Coming To Jamaican Pot Laws?

marijuana talk radio

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Jamaica’s Senate on Friday started debating a bill that would decriminalize possession of small amounts of pot and establish a licensing agency to regulate a lawful medical marijuana industry on the island where the drug has long been pervasive but prohibited.
Justice Minister Mark Golding, who introduced the legislation to the upper house, said it would establish a “cannabis licensing authority” to deal with regulations on cultivation and distribution of marijuana and industrial hemp for medical, scientific and therapeutic purposes.

We are just so, so biased.

marijuana talk radio

This is a study conducted by the American Medical Association to determine the safety and efficacy of the FDA approval process. They examined all therapeutic agents approved between 2005 and 2012. In that time period, 188 drugs were approved and the study examines the data used to determine safety. Most were based on results from less than 800 people, on average. Effing insane.

Obama Budget Would Let D.C. Proceed With Pot Legalization, Sales

marijuana talk radio

President Obama’s $4 trillion budget plan would allow the District to spend its own tax dollars to legalize and regulate marijuana by rolling back restrictions put in place by Republican lawmakers last year.
Congress passed a spending bill in December that blocks the District from spending any money — either federal or local tax dollars — to enact legislation that would legalize or reduce penalties associated with the recreational use of marijuana or any other Schedule 1 drugs.

Lifetime Medical Marijuana Recommendations Are Legal In Washington

marijuana talk radio

In Washington State, physicians that specialize in medical cannabis often offer 1-year and 2-year recommendations to qualifying individuals, though don’t offer ones that last indefinitely (‘lifetime recommendations”). Many dispensaries throughout the state, in fact, will deny patients who have lifetime recommendations, claiming that it’s required for a recommendations to be renewed either yearly, or biyearly. This, however, just isn’t true. Lifetime recommendations are entirely legal in Washington State, which we confirmed through the state’s Department of Health.

Cannabis Music – Show 64

This episode’s Featured Cannabis Music is actually much more than just one song. We talk about a really cool website called, MarijuanaMusic.net. It’s basically a website where you can use or create playlists specifically designed to aid in the growth and development of your cannabis plants. HOW COOL IS THAT?

cannabis radio

Here’s what their website says:

Welcome, where music grows plants

We use the music as a method for growing plants

ROOTS

Playing music for several hours during the day greatly affects plant growth.

FACTS

Although illegal in many countries, some people use marijuana on a daily basis as medical or ludic motives, but there are a lot of misinformation out there.
