Ep 99: Great Representation

Play

“A politician doesn’t know anything but their issue, and nobody wants to make medical marijuana their issue.”

The Hot Box proudly presents to you, episode 99 of our medical marijuana talk show. We started this show back in May of 2010 intent on educating the people and spreading the good word of marijuana. We’ve met a lot of cool people in the process who are fighting tooth and nail, pouring their every waking moment to help the medical marijuana industry move forward. It’s great to see so many smart, well motivated people focused on fixing the massively ugly, waste of money and resources mistake that is the war on drugs. One of those people on the forefront each and every day is the MTCIA’s own Ed Docter. Ed is a man of vision and drive, putting thousands of miles on his own personal vehicle to visit every single medical marijuana business in the great state of Montana. Between him, and the rest of the team that makes up the MTCIA, and all of the patients, providers, and common people such as myself in this great industry, we are getting things done. It’s a slow and steady process, but hey, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Although Caesar was murdered towards the end of one. The government should take great care in how they continue to address the people involved in this industry.

We are not second class citizens. We are not criminals. We are hard working honest every day people that keep this great country of ours going. If you continue to treat us like criminals and put us in jail, or break into our businesses during normal hours of operation just to steal money and cannabis, you are going to start a civil war you will not win. No body will win. Every life lost, every family member incarcerated, every dollar that gets spent on fighting this legal battle, takes away money and able bodies from the community it lives and thrives in. You cannot win, because we have the truth on our side. You have lied, but now we control the flow of information. It’s better to stop now, apologize, reschedule, and end this silly war on drugs before things go too far. Though some of us would say things are far passed that point. It’s up to you. Get links on how you can help support the movement after the break.

Special: MMGA Cannabis Conference Part 7

Play

Here is part 7 of the audio from the Helena Montana Medical Growers Assocation Cannabis Symposium that I went to back in September. This is the last talk of the series.

If you would like to show your appreciation for the countless hours spent up late nights when I should have been well in bed for work the next morning, feel free to contribute some motivation in the form of a pay pal donation. At the very least, spread the word about the Hot Box and the MMGA. We’re doing great things for medical cannabis!

This part you will first hear from Talyn Lang, the Missoula chapter head of the MMGA speaking about customer service. With him speaking also is Pam Bouchard. After that we hear from Grant Redfield, who speaks about grow room safety and business operations. Then at the end you briefly hear from J.B. who is the man with Green Point Insurance.┬áThis is great stuff, so listen and learn, and I hope you all can gain something from this. I apologize for the quality of the audio, I actually spent an hour or so cleaning it up. You should have heard it before I fixed it. Anyways, this is the last talk from room 2 at the 2010 Helena MMGA Cannabis Conference. The camera ran out of tape so I apologize for not having the rest of the room 2 talks. You’ll just have to try and make it next year, or write to the MMGA head, Jim Gingery, and tell him you want the Hot Box at the conference.
