I'm back. For now... Since I've been out for the past few Thursdays, we've been missing Harvey J. Kaye. So he joined me today for a quick visit. In hour two, Marijuana Policy Project's Director of Federal Policies, Robert Capecchi, told us about the DEA's decision to keep marijuana as a schedule 1 substance. The Silver Tour's Robert Platshorn joined in to tell us about tomorrow's one day picket of Publix, whose founder's heir donated $800 million to the campaign to defeat Amendment 2, the medical marijuana amendment on the ballot Nov 8. If you're in South Florida, come [...]
As you likely know by now, I'm battling lung cancer. The first part of the battle had me being poked, prodded and scanned. The second is finding the surgeon who'll cut the tumor(s) out of me! That's what we're doing now. Yesterday, we were in Tampa, having a consultation with a great surgeon there, Dr. Lary Robinson. Today, we were closer to home, at the UM/Sylvester Cancer Center to meet with Dr. Dao Nguyen. Also truly impressive. While I was out, we ran abbreviated one-hour programs... The podcasts are posted below. I'll be back tomorrow, and will let you know [...]
As you probably know by now, I'm fighting cancer. I'm nothing if not thorough, and the search for the right surgeon to cut this cancer out of me is frustrating at best. I've long known of the medicinal and healing properties of cannabis. A few years ago, I even narrated the TV program, Should Grandma Smoke Pot? My research brought me to PhoenixTears.ca, the official website of cannabis as a cure pioneer Rick Simpson, who famously began giving his home made "hemp oil" to friends and neighbors in Canada, with astounding results. Today, Rick is living in Croatia, still [...]
Yesterday, I talked about working out the conflicts of our inner voices, though some people thought I "went too far." Others thanked me for being "spot on." All I know is all I know. Today, it's that the world continues down its pathway of madness. People hear what they want to hear instead of actually listening to what's being said. We talk past one another instead of with each other. Until we learn to shut up and listen, we're bound to continue making the same mistakes. Today, I talked a bit about that disconnect. I praised the celebration of [...]
Forget presumptive, Hillary Clinton is the "Presumptuous nominee". Today, Nicole Sandler discusses this break from reality and the rest of the day's news and information with her regular Thursday guests Driftglass and Howie Klein.
Nicole Sandler has lots to process on this Earth Day Friday show. Prince died yesterday, and we're reminded of the power of music. Ari Rabin-Havt of SiriusXM joins in to talk about his new book, "Lies, Incorporated". And Robert "Bobby Tuna" Platshorn updates us on the fight to end cannabis prohibition.
It was a tough night last night, but Nicole Sandler is here to point out the many silver linings in #StillSanders-land. Dave Johnson of the Campaign for America's Future joins in to help put things in perspective. And Deborah Newell returns for our Wednesday morning Oy FloriDUH session, with a 4/20 detour to the "Patients Out of Time" conference.
As fall replaces summer, crazy political season kicks into high gear. Nicole Sandler has the news. Plus The Silver Tour's Robert Platshorn with the latest on the efforts to end prohibition and Joanne Bamberger, editor of "Love Her, Love Her Not: The Hillary Paradox" guest.
No campaign cycle Reaganesque Drug War dra-ma on this season of The Apprentice: Oval Office? It's as if none o' the Rethugs can be bothered to give MJ legalization the time or Faux Fvxed Up outrage it deserves! Pitiful effort. A couple dozen +/_ GOP candidates and not a one of them gives an audible damn about bashing the Demon Weed this election cycle?? Is that scaffolding over the dome right now truly just one giant MJ vaping filtration system Congress stealth-ordered way ahead of the District managing to lift 78 years of pot prohibition on itself? All [...]
Nicole is back from the long Memorial Day weekend, ready to debunk some untruths told on Friday's show. Guests include former cop, now LEAP spokesman Raeford Davis, and @GottaLaff too!
