In our fourth season opener (wait, what?) David and I get nicely baked and talk the news. Because what everyone needs to listen to is stoned adults pontificating during an election year. Right? And David brought vodka to our recording session so this should be fun.
“Potitics” During an Election Year
When I started thestonermom.com in 2014, I had the distinct desire to abstain from any and all political and legislative topics. I really just wanted to focus on the perspective of normalizing use for mothers. But as the time has gone by and my collection of emails from loyal fans makes me increasingly moved and angered by the publics perception of cannabis use, I have gotten more involved and interested in the news and current status of legalization in the US and around the world.
Today we are discussing various news reports that have pissed me off, regarding opiate addiction, the heroin epidemic in the US, sex slavery in the illegal pot industry, and what candidate for the presidency has the best stance on legalizing marijuana.
In this episode of Mom and Dad are Stoned:
- the ongoing opiate addiction problem in the US
- sex trafficking and its link to illegal cannabis grows in Northern California
- 2016 Presidential election and the future of Cannabis legalization
Got questions, comments, topic requests? Have a question for David about cannabis cultivation? Have business related questions? Email us!
Next week we will be revisiting the basics of cannabis. This is something we will do every once in awhile,because people are always discovering podcasts and I’d like to have something current every season for those who may need some immediate answers about cannabis.
Until then, thank you for listening, lovely talking to you, and please remember to be safe, be responsible, be kind, and smoke weed ‘erry day!
