“How is that not organized crime?”

Show of hands, who here smokes marijuana? Are you addicted? Do you have a drug problem? Well, maybe you do and maybe you don’t. Either way, I’m not here to judge. I’m here to write and talk, to rap and love, and in the process inform the good people of the world that hey, this is how our country handles it’s drug policy. You got a problem with that? Yea, so do we. That’s why we gather here each week to have intelligent discussions focused on cannabis, and how the industry can make a positive difference in their communities. So sit back, blaze one, and enjoy this weeks episode of the Hot Box.

Ep 105: Devil Weed

“We need the states and the attorney generals of the states to stand up for their rights as sovereign states.”

Welcome to episode 105 of the Hot Box marijuana podcast. Each week we discuss recent cannabis news, interesting marijuana related topics, and answer general questions about society. Join us each week live on Hot Box TV to participate in the live recording via our chat room. In this episode we would like to welcome distnguished LEAP member, Stephen Downing. The topic at hand is from this LEAP article about how YouTube ignored a question advocating marijuana legalization from a retired LAPD deputy chief of police that won twice as many votes as any other video question in the White House’s “Your Interview with the President” competition on the Google-owned site.

Ep 104: Promising Change

Play

“Are you calling for a revolution?”

What is it the people want? What do We the People need? Basic necessities in order to survive? Of course. A comfortable standard of living? Sure, why not. The right to be treated equally regardless of race, color, or creed? You betcha. The right to pursue happiness and liberty in life? I wouldn’t have it any other way. The right to be treated like a second class citizen simply because we choose to smoke or ingest cannabis instead of the alternative? Ye… Nope. Wait, what? No? It seems we have a breakdown in communication here. We have all sorts of amazing, unalienable rights as citizens of this great country, yet a huge number of us are incarcerated each and every day for choosing a less harmful alternative than what the major mainstream companies are trying to shove down our throats. Do I understand this correctly? Is our great all knowing government actually saying that if WE choose to treat OUR bodies with cannabis because cannabis works for US, and works with a LOT less side effects that are a LOT LESS HARMFUL, we instantly cross that threshold from good wholesome law abiding tax paying citizen to worthless second class criminal drug addict? Wow. Think about it. Think about the hypocrisy, and the disinformation they spread. Think about all the good people who’s lives are wasted, not because they did something evil or hurt someone, but because our government thinks it knows best how we should be taking care of our bodies.

Ep 103: Flip Flopping

“Here, smoke this, and it’ll be interesting.”

Do you smoke? Are you tired of fighting this ridiculous war? Yeah, we are too. It gets old saying the same things to the same people over and over again. We know, you get it, but you still aren’t off the hook. Tell a friend, help support the shows you love, whether that’s us or another, as long as you support something. For once in your life, be a part of something great. I kid, I kid. But seriously, let’s make a concerted effort to try and preach, not so much to the choir all the time, but to all humans in general. It sucks, I know. Trust me I know. But it simply needs to be done. Keep reading after the break for show notes. You know you love it.

Ep 102: The New Middle Finger

“You took the Christ out of Christmas.”

Are we the enemy? Nah, we’re here to help educate and entertain. How are we doing so far? We encourage you to let us know. Follow us on all our social networks, located on the right hand menu. Now I’d like to welcome back our good friend from Texas, Denton Ramsey. He started a new site called CannaTruths, Facts About the Plant. You can find Denton’s marijuana / cannabis related writings there, and on the Jamhole / Hot Box forums in the cannabis fact box section. If we expect anything to change or get better, we MUST get educated. If you are already educated, then it is your duty to help educate others. We need to use these great tools and this amazing infrastructure we’ve created to our benefit. There is no better more efficient way to share information than on the Internet. Without further ado, I give you Denton Ramsey, and his piece entitled, “Cannabis in America: Mixed Messages, or Laced Lies?”

We hope you all have a merry Christmas, a festive Festivus, a holy Hanukkah, and a cool capitalism filled consumer day. We’ll see you next week. Keep in touch with us in between episodes on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. To get an email every time the show is live, follow us on Justin.tv. We also have discussions on the forums. IF you have a minute and an iTunes account, subscribe to the show and give us a review. The reviews help us get more listeners!
