This week on The Green Rush, our host Anne Donohoe jumped back in the chair with our friends over at Marijuana Today for a special episode to talk about the next stage of cannabis reform at the federal and state level!
Chatting with friend of the pod Ben Larson of Vertosa, they look at the first federal cannabis bill for 2021 which would see cannabis rescheduled from Schedule 1 to 3. They also take a look at how states like New York and New Jersey are incrementally moving cannabis forward, but in a more lackluster fashion than constituents and advocates would like.
In addition to the chat between Ben and Anne, Marijuana Today also explores the needs around social equity in the cannabis space and how to best provide the resources and education that’s needed to help those most negatively impacted by the War on Drugs to enter and be successful in the industry. Philly-based journalist and Executive Board Member of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists Tauhid Chappell joins to provide his thoughts
So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
