Congressional Cannabis Day Part 3 – Opioids, Is Cannabis the Answer? Panel

We’re onto part three of our special series highlighting the panels of the inaugural “KCSA Congressional Cannabis Day Forum” at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. As part of the event, KCSA gathered a host of some of the brightest minds in the industry for a series of panel discussions aimed at addressing critical issues relevant to the sector, including capital markets and banking, CBD/hemp, opioids, veterans’ issues and social justice.

In the third installment of this four part series, we hear from our Opioids, Is Cannabis the Answer? Panel. We were privileged to have with us, Dr. Bonni Goldstein, Medical Director of Canna-Centers Wellness and Education Dr. Richard Boxer, Clinical Professor of Urology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Dr. Patricia Frye, Chief Medical Officer of HelloMD, and Moderator Carl Cameron, formerly of Fox News Channel.

So often the medicinal benefits and the real impact cannabis has as an alternative to opioids can be forgotten so it was great to have some of the foremost researchers on this topic speak to the tremendous value cannabis brings to those in need. What follows is a conversation that explores how cannabis affects our bodies, what benefits and treatments researchers have been able to garner from limited research to date and what next steps are needed to expand clinical research on the plant.

So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Snootchie Bootchies! Chatting with Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob

Welcome back to the Green Rush!  This week we have Lewis and Anne go back to their New Jersey roots as they welcome in the legendary Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob fame!  Heralded as one of the most influential cultural cannabis icons in Hollywood over the last 25 years, Mewes got his start in Hollywood with the indie-smash, Clerks and has since starred in a number of films including Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Jason has since evolved his career from an actor into a full-fledged entertainer hosting the “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” podcast and directing his own feature film “Madness in the Method” which is slated to be released in late 2018/early 2019.

During the conversation, Lewis and Anne chat with Jay about his relationship with Kevin Smith, when he was finally able to quit his day job and become a working actor, Jay’s struggles with addiction and his views on cannabis exit drug for those working to overcome opioid addiction; how Jay plans to introduce his daughter to his movies and cannabis and what Jay has coming up in the pipeline including his upcoming appearance at The Emerald Cup later this month.

In addition to the conversation with Jason, we also have Shea Gunther of Marijuana Today and our magnificent Program Director, opening this week’s episode covering the biggest news in the cannabis industry and breaking down what he thinks were the overlooked stories from last week. If you aren’t already make sure you are checking out all of the great content Shea is helping produce over at Marijuana Today.

Enjoy!

With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob).
