About This Episode

The demand for credible information about cannabis is insatiable, evidenced by the fact that the term “cannabis” is among the most frequently searched on most common search engines. Fortunately, there is no shortage of information about it. A Google search for the keyword “cannabis” yields more than 242 million results. It’s daunting, but hasn’t always been that way. Just a decade ago, information about cannabis was hard to find online outside of a handful of pro-marijuana outlets and lot of anti-marijuana propaganda sites. Unbiased information was scarce with only a few online outlets presenting serious data, scholarly research, legal information and credible resources about medical cannabis.

Times have changed! The volumes of scientific research available online has grown exponentially since then. Regulation states are debunking anti-marijuana myths with real time data about ways in which legal markets have diminished illicit drug use and related crime. Hundreds of new cannabis brands are launching to meet overwhelming demand in states where it’s legal and, as more and more states are legalizing it for medical or adult use, news about cannabis is seeping into mainstream media. With a vast majority of Americans now favoring some form of legalization and a warming attitude about ending prohibition brewing in Congress, media coverage is driving more consumer-curiosity. The anticipation is palpable, which explains why there are so many media outlets catering to advocates.

But with so much information now available to consumers, sorting through it to determine what’s credible or not is still a daunting task. With all of the excitement about the emerging industry, there’s bound to be a lot of hyperbole and unverified claims being made by well-intentioned enthusiasts. As interest in cannabis grows among mainstream audiences, patients are beginning to rely upon information they find online to make critical decisions about treatment options. The need for factually-sober information is becoming more and more critical. That’s the topic of today’s show and media maverick Michael Klein is here to talk about it.

About This Episode

When Congress passed the 21stAmendment to repeal the federal prohibition of alcohol, a number of states opted to maintain statewide temperance laws until 1966, when Mississippi was the last dry state to finally end prohibition. Even then, states had the authority to enact their own rules – for example, no sale of alcohol on Sundays or after 2:00 a.m. every other day. Some limited the age to legally purchase alcohol to 18 years of age, others 21 years of age. Some states have allowed counties and municipalities to set their own local laws. To this day, there are dozens of dry counties, where you’d be hard pressed to find any alcohol at all.

As more and more states adopt cannabis legalization measures, industry stakeholders and consumers alike are grappling with the fact that not every municipality is on board. Some state measures allow local governments to establish their own ordinances having to do with zoning, permits, licenses and hours of operation. While some states require municipalities to get voter approval for local ordinances that stray too far from state rules, others are at the mercy of the local city council or county commissions. But either way, discrepancies in the law wind up being settled in court.

Such was the case in Charlton, Massachusetts, where the local land court ruled in favor of an agricultural land owner who had been barred by the local town council from converting his farm into a million square foot cultivation facility. In a state that is still in the process of closing legislative loopholes in its adult-use measure passed last year, and where local lawmakers have yet to learn the many ways in which the cannabis industry can make a positive impact in their communities, the Land Court decision was a big win for the industry. That’s the topic of today’s show and our guest Robert Munnelly is here to help us understand how that decision will impact Massachusetts and other states that are in the process of legalizing cannabis.

About This Episode

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the old adage goes. That is especially true in the rapidly-evolving cannabis industry.  Unlike businesses in other sectors, cannabis companies have unique challenges and, due to legal ambiguities prevalent in this space, they have been grossly underserved when it comes to highly-regulated industries like banking, securities and insurance. In fact, until just a few years ago, most institutional service providers either refused, or were prohibited from, working with cannabis companies.

HUB International is one of the few major insurance brokers that provides an array of insurance options for cannabis companies. Having developed an entire vertical serving the cannabis sector, HUB International now serves cannabis industry clients in 33 states, throughout Canada and other countries around the world where cannabis is legal.

In this Pro Series interview, practice leader TJ Frost explains how HUB International has capacity to provide coverage for just about every size and type of company in the cannabis industry and explores what stakeholders should expect in terms of coverage. What is, perhaps, most compelling about TJ is his passion for the sector that was born from a personal loss, which inspired him to serve as an unrelenting advocate to help cannabis companies navigate the complexities of insuring their businesses against unexpected losses.

About This Episode

An online search for historical information about cannabis will yield lots of information about ancient origins in Asia, the Middle East, India and Europe. But very few on Africa. Why is a mystery considering that the “Cradle of Mankind” is where the earliest humans walked the earth and, with so many pre-historic sites unearthed throughout the continent, you’d think that archeologists would have reported at least some trace evidence of cannabis amid human remains had they found any. Right?

But then again, maybe not. Of all of the decomposed organic material found at ancient burial sites, cannabis wouldn’t be something most archaeologists would think to test for unless they were specifically looking for it, so it wouldn’t be surprising.

What may surprise you is that the origins of cannabis smoking, as well as the first recorded iteration of the term “Marijuana,” can be traced to Africa. You might also be surprised to know that the derogatory stigma of cannabis use correlation with racism didn’t begin with the Reefer Madness campaign, contrary to popular belief. It actually began centuries ago. In Europe, its association with race and class began when explorers first reported the prevalence of cannabis use in Africa. In the U.S., racial bias associated with cannabis may have originated prior to the Civil War when it was prevalent among African slave laborers. When the sinister Reefer Madness campaign set out to convince an unwitting public about the virtues of prohibition by demonizing “marihuana” prevalent among Mexican farm workers in the south only compounded the problem. The racial injustice of prohibition has ensued relentlessly ever since, as evidenced by the fact that it has disproportionately victimized people of color.

But if the systemic racism associated with cannabis originated long before prohibition began, then one has to wonder whether an understanding of the history of cannabis use in Africa could help to dispel the stigma associated with its use and end the racial bias engrained in our criminal justice system that scarred minority communities for decades.

Those are questions that are best posed to our guest, Dr. Chris Duvall, author of the new book on the subject titledThe African Roots of Marijuana. If you haven’t already ordered the book, we highly recommend you do. If that recommendation hasn’t convinced you, this interview might. Dr. Duvall’s scholarly presentation of history is as entertaining as it is educational and his book reads with the same conversational ease as this compelling interview.

About This Episode

If you were with us last year, you might recall our interview with attorney Tom Dean about the Rodney Jones case, which had devastating implications for Arizona’s medical marijuana program. In case you missed it, Rodney Jones, a card-carrying medical marijuana patient, was arrested in 2013 after a routine traffic stop, when officers found him in possession of hashish, a cannabis derivative he had purchased legally at a licensed dispensary.

A year later, after prosecutors sufficiently convinced a jury that the hashish in his possession was not marijuana as defined in the AMMA, but rather cannabis, which is illegal under Arizona criminal code, Jones was convicted of felony possession and sentenced to a mandatory minimum sentence of more than three years. He spent two and a half years in prison before his appeal could be heard. When appellate court justices ruled in favor of the prosecutors, they sent Rodney Jones back to prison to serve out the rest of his sentence.

This definitely was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was arrested in Yavapai County, jurisdiction of prosecutor Sheila Polk, who is notorious for her staunch opposition to the AMMA.

Her prosecution of Rodney Jones and subsequent conviction was a huge win for her and her campaign donors. The Appellate Court ruling essentially gutted protections for the vast majority of Arizona medical marijuana patients who rely on extracts for medical reasons.

By interpreting the medical marijuana act’s definition of “marijuana” as it applied to legal medical use to include only dried, smokable leaves, the jurists excluded the extracts and resins, which are deemed to be illegal substances per the definition of cannabis in Arizona’s criminal code. So, despite the obvious voter intent of the measure, all tinctures, resins, vape products, edibles and topicals containing extracts of the marijuana plant were rendered illegal for patients to use.

That changed last week when the Arizona Supreme Court reversed the Appellate denial, exonerated Rodney Jones and upheld the voters’ intent to legalize medicinal cannabis, including extracts and resins. Anything short of that would have destroyed the thriving industry in Arizona according to Rodney’s attorneys, Gary Smith and Robert Mandel, who are here to explain how the Supreme Court victory may have saved the industry and protected Arizona’s medical marijuana patients from facing the tragic circumstances.

About Our Guest

Rob Mandel is a seasoned appellate and trial court litigation lawyer and a founding partner at Mandel Young, where he specializes in high-stakes commercial, constitutional, and public law disputes. He was the lead attorney who successfully argued on behalf of Rodney Jones at his Arizona Supreme Court appeal.

Also a member of the legal team representing amici Will Humbolt is attorney Gary Smith. He is a partner at the law firm, Smith Saks Kuzmich, where he specializes in cannabis law. He is also president and founding member of the board of the Arizona Cannabis Bar Association and frequently speaks at industry events.

About This Episode

For more than a century, the U.S. has been considered the leader of the free world, defending humanitarian rights and promoting democracy around the globe. As the birth place of automobiles, electricity and the World Wide Web, it has set trends with innovative technology, safety standards and social trends that have changed the way people live. But it has also become known as the police force of the world, establishing international laws, diplomatic policies and treaties, which most other countries eventually adopt as their own.

So, when the United States banned cannabis, most countries followed suit after they had been sufficiently convinced by US diplomats that cannabis was a dangerous drug. It’s no accident that the United States soon became a leading producer of new pharmaceutical drugs and industrial products exported to countries that once produced their own medicine, paper, textiles, fuels and composites out of locally-grown marijuana and hemp before it was no longer legal.

With revelations about the injustice of prohibition and the emergence of indisputable evidence that cannabis should never have been scheduled, a number of countries have been abandoning U.S. drug treaties. One by one, countries began legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana within their borders and dedicating resources to support medical cannabis research.

For the first time since the industrial revolution, the U.S. has taken a back seat to other countries driving the advancement of cannabis research. In the race to develop medical breakthroughs and compete in the global cannabis market, one country, Israel, has become a global leader in cannabis science.

The State of Israel has been encouraging the study of cannabis since the 1960s, when famed researcher Dr. Raphael Mechoulam first isolated and studied the first known cannabinoid, THC. Then at Hebrew University, Dr. Mechoulam also discovered that THC could help alleviate symptoms of PTSD and the Israeli Parliament enacted the first post-prohibition law allowing Israeli’s soldiers to legally use cannabis. Since then, his research led to the discovery of the human endocannabinoid system and its importance to human health.  Since then, Israel has become regarded as a global leader on medical cannabis breakthroughs that have helped to transform attitudes about cannabis policy around the world and here in the U.S.

Israel has granted permission for U.S. research institutions to work with its scientists to develop new therapeutic uses for cannabis and a handful of Israeli companies are now allowed to export their medical cannabis products to countries around the world, including to U.S. states where it’s legal for medical use.

That’s the topic of this interview with Golan Bitton, CEO of Univo.

About Our Guest

Golan Bitton on The Cannabis Reporter Radio Show hosted by Snowden Bishop

Golan holds a B.A. in Economics from Max Stern Academic College and Computer Engineering from Negev University.

About This Episode

When Congress legalized agricultural hemp with the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, it seemed like the hemp industry would finally be out of the woods from a regulatory standpoint. So, it defies logic that the FDA is creating obstacles for hemp CBD producers and that every-day people are still being arrested for possession of hemp biomass and extracts.

Just last week, a 67-year-old great grandmother was arrested at the happiest place on earth when a Disney World employee discovered a bottle of CBD in her purse after a routine inspection at the park entrance. You may recall the truck driver who was arrested in Idaho with a load of freshly harvested hemp on its way from Oregon to a processing plant in Colorado just weeks after the hemp measure was signed into law.

Incidents like that leave most of us scratching our heads, considering that hemp is now legal at the federal level and hemp-derived CBD is a harmless molecule that is naturally produced in our own bodies when we’re young.

Let’s face it, legal hemp seems to be an oxymoron. Minutes after the hemp measure was signed into law, the FDA blindsided the elated industry with its stern warning that only one CBD product has ever been approved for sale in the U.S. and that all other hemp CBD products would remain illegal to sell until they can be approved by the FDA. The only exceptions would apply to the manufacturing and sale of CBD limited to states that had included CBD provisions in their state marijuana policy measures.

But that’s a Catch 22, as I’ve mentioned before, since most state ballot measures never bothered to name hemp CBD in their bills because it was already thought to be legal and had been readily available online from anywhere in the U.S. ever since the 9thCircuit Court of Appeals deemed foods containing foreign-grown hemp derivatives legal in all 50 states back in 2004.

It wasn’t until the end of 2016, when the DEA assigned CBD its own controlled substance code to separate it from marijuana in Schedule 1, that the legality of hemp CBD was called into question. That surprise move caused a reversal on the 9th Circuit’s 2004 rule and a subsequent cascade of new policy restrictions on the industry including policy reversals in states like California, which also never named CBD under their marijuana legalization measures. Ironically, while hemp-derived CBD is illegal to sell in consumable goods in California, CBD derived from the marijuana variety of the cannabis plant is legal to sell in that state.

Despite the fact that Congress intended to legalize hemp, including all of its derivatives, in all 50 states, the measure may have inadvertently made matters worse – not just for the industry, but also for the patients who have come to rely on CBD for health reasons. Taking oversight away from the DEA and handing it over to the FDA seems to have opened Pandora’s Box. Whereas the DEA had far more important things to do than police the CBD industry after it became coded as a controlled substance, the FDA seems hell-bent on policing the industry as if CBD were an opiate, and as if they have nothing more important to do.

The FDA has put the industry on notice that CBD, even from hemp, will continue to be considered a controlled substance from their purview. And, as such, they will continue to maintain that it is illegal to sell CBD-infused foods and beverages without FDA approval, that it is illegal to make or sell hemp CBD extracts in states that haven’t specifically legalized it, and that transporting it interstate is a federal offense. It is only a matter of time before the FDA starts shutting down companies that sell any CBD-infused foods and beverages outside of those parameters or across state lines.

So, if the future looks bleak for the CBD industry, take heart! There are work-arounds to overcome the new FDA rules. But as you will learn in this episode, that will require some action on the part of everyone who has an interest in a legal CBD industry, patients and producers, alike.

That’s the topic of today’s show and FDA attorney Rick Ball is here to down on some of the steps we can take to push through the FDA’s stone walls and make sure that the light at the end of this regulatory tunnel doesn’t turn out to be the headlight of an oncoming train.

Here’s a call to action:

1. Read the statement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, MD regarding the upcoming FDA hearing about pathways regulating CBD products on May 31st.

2. Submit commentary to be considered at the May 31st hearing.

2. Contact your congressional representatives — as often as possible.

3. Listen to this interview with FDA attorney Rick Ball for more!

About This Episode

Once upon a time, ominous TV ads warning teens about the dangers of marijuana were nearly as pervasive as the pro-pharmaceutical commercials are today. By the time the Controlled Substances Act became law, any lingering doubt about the veracity of Reefer Madness was a distant memory. So effective was the relentless propaganda demonizing marijuana and its users that no amount of iron-clad evidence to the contrary could sway public perceptions.

The indelible stigma was like an impenetrable wall protecting the egregious injustice of prohibition from exposure. Lobbying for legalization proved to be an exercise in futility until activists began addressing the credibility factor. Throngs of protesters showing up on the steps of the nation’s Capitol wearing tie-dyed t-shirts reeking of marijuana weren’t likely to convince already skeptical lawmakers about the virtues of an illicit drug that they understandably associated with fringe counterculture.

When California became one of the first states to legalize cannabis for medical use, dispensary owners learned the hard way about the importance of establishing a respectable public-facing storefront; that a retail theme eluding to “Stonerville” and inventory catering exclusively to seasoned recreational marijuana users would not only alienate skeptical new patients, it could trigger a cascade of NIMBY protests, anti-marijuana smear campaigns and/or a ballot initiative to close it down.

Since then, shifting the paradigm, making cannabis acceptable in the public mainstream, has been as important, and as challenging, as reforming laws to make it accessible to the masses, if not more-so. The industry has gained trust by suiting up and showing up as a serious, sophisticated business sector. Today’s activists and entrepreneurs look more like high-paid C-level executives than some of their early predecessors, who resembled flower children in a Summer of Love-era B-movie. Dispensaries look more like Madison Avenue boutiques than Venice Beach smoke shops. With so many educational media outlets providing user-friendly, G-rated consumption instructions, cannabis patients no longer have to decipher marijuana vernacular in High-Times magazine just to learn how to take their medicine.

But, even now that most people favor legal access to cannabis, at least for medical use, the stigma remains a deterrent, particularly for people who were raised during or before the height of the drug war when condemning marijuana and its users was not only politically correct, it was socially mandatory. Even if they can be persuaded that cannabis is legitimate medicine, the unfamiliar setting of a dispensary for the first time can be intimidating enough to dissuade them from returning.

Eventually, with enough education, the stigma will be replaced by awe and respect for nature’s miraculous plant resource that, we now know, is vitally important to human health. Thanks to the trailblazers who have broken through barriers, increased awareness and grown demand for cannabis, it’s only a matter of time before federal prohibition is repealed. In the meanwhile, state legalization has opened doors for savvy entrepreneurs to innovative ways to meet that demand and make cannabis both more acceptable and accessible for anyone who needs it. Our guest, Andrea Brooks, happens to be one.

About This Episode

Some of the earliest evidence of cannabis used for medicinal purposes can be traced back more than 4,000 years, long before recorded history. In the Netherlands, a grave estimated to predate the late Neolithic period between 2200 and 2500 BC was found to contained large amounts of cannabis pollen mixed with small amounts of meadowsweet, an ancient remedy used to reduce fever, suggesting the grave belonged to someone who died of a serious illness.

In 2008, the famed cannabis researcher Dr. Ethan Russo led a team of forensic scientists analyzing the phytochemicals and genetics of plant substances taken from a 2,700-year-old grave of a shaman in Central Asia. Through various methods, the scientists were able to ascertain that the samples were from multiple different cultivars with similar concentrations of THC, indicating they had been methodically cultivated for their medicinal properties.

Cannabis has been listed as one of the “50 Fundamental Herbs” used in Traditional Chinese Medicine since the discipline began. The earliest Chinese pharmacopeia, written in the first century, describes the medicinal properties of cannabis, or Ma as it was then known then, describing its use as anesthesia during surgery and treating a wide range of common ailments including pain, hair loss, nervous disorders, toxicity, scorpion stings, post-partum depression, digestive tract problems and parasites, including tape worms, just to name a handful of uses.

In the practice of what eventually became known as “Western Medicine,” cannabis wasn’t as commonly prescribed by doctors until the 18thCentury and it wasn’t added to the U.S. Pharmacopeia until the 1850s. By the time it was removed from the U.S. Pharmacopeia in 1942, approximately 240 drug producers had made more than 2000 cannabis tinctures and compounds commonly prescribed to treat hundreds of medical conditions.

As modern pharmaceutical drugs were introduced to replace cannabis, many of those formulations were lost to history, which is sad considering that hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost to dangerous synthetic drugs that are often toxic to systems in the human body.

That’s not to say that all pharmaceuticals are bad. Some are vitally important for curing acute conditions. But new scientific evidence supports the legitimate use of cannabis for treating conditions, which never needed such harsh drugs comes. As our guest, Jimmy Carberry explains, the wisdom we glean by studying the composition of ancient cannabis remedies unearthed by archeologists may provide modern formulators with a blueprint to guide the development of new cannabis cures and inform the future of medicine.

It’s Time We Defend Theirs. Why VA Policy Causes More Harm Than Good.</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com">The Cannabis Reporter</a>.</p> Snowden Bishop interviews Veterans and PTSD Specialist Dr. Jordan Tishler on why VA policy causes more harm than good.
Learning about yet another veteran suicide at the Phoenix VA underscores the urgent need for policy reform to allow veterans the freedom to access the healing power of cannabis. Under current policy, Veterans who could benefit most from its therapeutic healing power would risk losing their VA medical benefits if caught with cannabis in their system.

A number of doctors, researchers and advocacy groups have made concerted efforts to convince the VA to end its “conventional-treatment-or-no-treatment” policy. Even the most compelling testimony from veterans about ways in which cannabis saves lives has been met with resistance. The Phoenix VA is one of the most staunch opponents and policy makers have gone out of their way to block research that would provide the institution with evidence that cannabis therapy is far safer and more effective than the most commonly prescribed drugs that often do more harm than good.

After sacrificing so much to protect our freedom, it is simply unacceptable that veterans are denied the freedom to choose whatever medicine helps them without sacrificing benefits they’re entitled to receive. After receiving an article written by NORML-AZ director Mikel Weiser sent by SWCC, we felt compelled to do something and called upon a number of industry peers, advocacy groups and volunteers to stage a rally in support of veterans rights on Veterans Day right in Phoenix. In this episode, we interviewed two veterans who have been refused care with dignity from the Phoenix VA, and a PTSD physician who knows why the VA policy needs to change.]]>

Episode I, you’ll recall listening to NY State Assemblyman and veterinarian Dr. Stephen Katz talk about hemp-derived CBD medication for canines.
Last week, Chef Payton Curry spoke with me about edibles, and challenges new patients have getting the dosage right. Since edible medicine is absorbed through digestion, it can take up to an hour to feel the full effect. As he explained, those who aren’t familiar with the delay may think it’s not working and take more… If the medication is high in THC, that can lead to a rather intense euphoric experience, which may be a good thing for those who like the euphoria. But for those who don’t enjoy getting high – or for those who need to function during the day – it can be an uncomfortable problem.
In case you’re wondering what delayed effect of edible medicinals for humans has to do with veterinary formulas for dogs, there is a correlation.
In today’s interview, Dr. Katz has returned for a follow up interview and brought his scientific A-Team, Tony Alfiere, a self-educated scientist, and Dr. Jim Sharkey, who are currently working with Dr. Katz to develop the next generation of Therabis – therapeutic cannabis for canines. They are using new medical accelerant technology invented by Alfiere to expedite absorption and delivery of THC in edibles and elixers, which solves the problem of delayed effectiveness common in edibles. Dr. Jim Sharkey is the Chief Science Officer at Therabis working with Alfiere to apply that technology to therapeutic CBD formulas for dogs and cats.

Celebrity Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis In Your Kitchen https://www.thecannabisreporter.com/14274-2/ Wed, 13 Jul 2016 11:53:49 +0000 https://tcr.snv29e6b-liquidwebsites.com/?p=14274 <p>Host Snowden Bishop interviews celebrity Chef Payton Curry about the benefits of medicinal marijuana edibles.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com/14274-2/">Celebrity Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis In Your Kitchen</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com">The Cannabis Reporter</a>.</p> Host Snowden Bishop interviews celebrity Chef Payton Curry about the benefits of medicinal marijuana edibles. J.P. Holyoak, the Chairman of the Arizona Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, I was surprised to learn he is a conservative dad who never smoked pot and throughout most of his adulthood he was skeptical about the merits of cannabis. Of course, that changed when he learned how medical marijuana could help his young daughter who suffered from a severe seizure disorder.
Even though he’s now an expert, he once had to overcome a learning curve. Through trial and error and listening to experts, he found the best formulations, dosing and methods of medicating his daughter. He acknowledged that cooking cannabis edibles takes some education.
There are a lot of people out there like J.P. who learn to appreciate the incredible healing benefits of marijuana. New patients and parents must also learn the best way to use it. Learning how to smoke it is easy. Chances are that, on any given city block, they can find a neighbor who would be happy to share their knowledge. For patients who don’t like smoking marijuana, or parents who don’t want their children smoking medicine, a little investigation will help them find other simple ways to medicate: vaping pens, tinctures, oils, wax, salves and, perhaps the most enjoyable, edibles!
Unfortunately, high-quality and properly measured edibles are expensive and hard to find, and if you aren’t familiar with dosing, they can be hard to manage. Making marijuana edibles at home can save money, but the nuances of cooking cannabis take education.
That’s something my guest today, Chef Payton Curry knows a lot about. He owns a popular eatery in Scottsdale, Arizona and is in the process of opening a commercial kitchen to supply edibles to dispensaries. With a burning desire to help children, their parents and patients learn to get the most out of medicinal marijuana, he moonlights as a cannabis chef teaching people how to prepare medicated food with whole plant cannabis and calculate proper dosing in their recipes.
We aren’t just talking pot brownies here. Chef Curry is cooking cannabis with whole grains, organic vegetables, oils and veggies well as vegan and gluten free edibles. With recipes for “MunchEase” like Crepes of Wrath, Am I There Yet, Baked with Kine-Ness, Yummus and Mary-Nara Sauce he has a wonderful way of making medicinal food fun to prepare and eat.
I hope you enjoy Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis in Your Kitchen!
