Wednesday on Radio or Not!

Wednesdays are always fun for me, because we start the show with a visit from Christy Harvey of the Center for American Progress. I've never met Christy in person, but became a fan of hers during the early days of Air America where she was a frequent guest on the Al Franken Show. Last year, when I was doing nights on Air America, I contacted Christy and asked if she'd do a similar segment with me.. and we've been doing it ever since.  She brings great insight and lots of news stories to talk about that we other wise might [...]

It was a busy week in the war against prohibition. In our second hour tonight, I'll be joined by Judge Jim Gray, retired CA Superior Court judge who's a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, and author of  Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed And What We Can Do [...]

One Small Step for CA, One Giant Leap Toward Ending Prohibition

The state of California made history today! Until today, no U.S. state legislature had ever even considered voting on a measure that would legalize, regulate and tax marijuana. Today, not only did the California Assembly's Public Safety Committee consider it, they voted on and passed A.B. 390! The Marijuana Control, Regulation and Education Act, authored by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) passed the committee by a vote of 4-3, clearing the way for it to move to the Health committee before heading to the Assembly floor for a full vote. This is huge news not only for the pot smokers [...]
