Nicole talks with Stephen Goldstein about his new book, "Jeb Bush Outed: Who He Really Is and Why He Should Never Be President." Howie Klein is back too, talking politics, elections and Green Day too.
Nicole discusses the latest outrage from today's Republican party- an open letter to the leaders of Iran trying to sabotage ongoing talks, an act she believes is treason.

Love us a good Grandma defending, growing, selling or using The Herbal Remedy story. "It's not Republican to support prohibition," says Houston granny and recently widowed marijuana activist Ann Lee. Who happens to be 85 and vote Republican. [Or used to, time will tell.] As this article and video
Because it's Friday, Nicole focuses on some of the better things in life. Medical Marijuana activist Robert Platshorn joins in with details of the upcoming Rally in Tally and the latest in pot news.
