Cannabis Under the Trump Administration with Guest Steve Brooks of Lightshade

February 1, 2017

With a brand new President, we are all wondering in the industry what will happen? Is the future of cannabis doomed? Will nothing change at all? While it is still too early to tell, we can begin speculating the boom or bust of the legal cannabis industries in the United States. We invite the owner, Steve Brooks, of one of Denver’s first and best dispensaries in Denver, Lightshade, to share his thoughts on how this might play out. Listen in to hear our conclusion here at CannaPod.

This week Ruby Red Eye reviews Receptra Pro from Receptra Naturals. We find out that it is widely used by UFC and MMA fighters for its neuroprotectants, which improve cognitive functioning (so they don’t get hit as much!), as well as post-workout recovery. And WE find out that little miss Alex is into UFC…who knew!

Our news this week is proudly presented to us by TBD and covers: drug war proponents and the Law Enforcement Agency, Jeff Sessions and his vagueness about his marijuana strategy, and New York Senator writes a letter to Trump asking him to respect the wishes of the New York voters and not destroy the medical marijuana economy.

We miss Alejandra in the studio this week, as she was busy judging at the Daniels vs. Daniels competition for students at DU, who are interested in the cannabis industry. She briefly interviews several other judges and a student (who was not a proponent of the industry prior to participating in this competition) to hear their thoughts on the competition, the cannabis industry, and marijuana education.
