HBP 142: The Right Side of History

Play

“It wasn’t unicorns and rainbows, bro.”

Halloween! A day dedicated to debauchery and allowing your alter-ego (costume) out of your inner consciousness, because it’s acceptable to be whatever you want….for one day only. Wouldn’t that be terrible if we only did those for ONE day a year? It’d be like only going to church on Christmas! Oh wait, see what I did there? Just a thought, don’t be afraid to be unique.

Speaking of unique, here is another episode of The Hot Box Podcast! This makes it three weeks in a row that Ian Baker has been back with us. Also means that Mat Lee has been delivering content in addition to supplying the knowledge and connections (of all kinds ie. Clean drinking water, dirty bong water and the skills to produce multiple shows) for a grand total of 142 shows…. much respect.

“The war on drugs is over.”

Welcome to another episode of your favorite marijuana / cannabis talk show, the Hot Box. Mat Lee here with some show notes for episode 133.

Join us as we discuss changing drug policy, Obama VS Biden, some international drug policy, states rights, and the newly passed marijuana laws in Washington and Colorado. This is a great conversation so keep reading for links to more information on Diane Goldstein, LEAP, and the articles we discussed.

HBP 132: The M Word

Play

“What do we as American’s value?”

Alright check this out, another week, another fresh episode of your favorite weekly marijuana podcast, The Hot Box. Mat Lee here with some show notes for episode 132. Sorry about the delay while we got another co host together, but I think Kelsie has been doing a great job the last two episodes, so we might as well keep her. You would think it’s not that hard to find someone who can have a somewhat intelligent recorded conversation about cannabis / marijuana, but then you would be surprised. Most people are just weird about having what they say about weed be recorded. I blame the negative stigma the government has drilled into everyone’s head for that one. But seriously, we’re just here to inform, educate, and entertain. If we do at least one of those things each episode, our mission is accomplished. Keep on reading for links to articles. Thanks for listening!

HBP 130: Legal Wiggle

“Cannabis doesn’t kill people, bad laws kill people.”

Hello and welcome to another episode of our medical marijuana / cannabis talk show. Mat Lee here and I know, it’s been a bit since our last episode, but I’m glad to say we’re well on our way to getting things back on track. On tonight’s show we have Hiedi Handford back to get us all up to speed on what is going on in the local Montana Medical Cannabis industry. It’s almost time to vote, so make sure you are ready and armed with the proper information to make the right choices. You know what is really gross and disgusting? The fact that OUR government is responsible for more death and destruction than cannabis EVER has, or ever could. Are you as disgusted by that as I am? Then get out and vote NO on IR-124!

Keep on reading for links to the articles we’ve discussed here. Thanks for listening!

HBP 128: Uneducated Masses

Play

“If you live in a state that hasn’t been raped by the Federal government, good for you guys.”

Here we go with episode 128 of our pretty much weekly marijuana-ish podcast, The Hot Box. This might be one of the last shows for a while until Ian gets settled in his new digs, or I find someone else to pilot this star ship. Each and every week we feel the show focuses on and discusses the same monotonous news stories that come out day after day, week after week. Come listen to us beat this horse. Until things change at the federal level, nothing is ever going to change. You can chase state laws from now until the cows come home, but all you’re really doing is chasing tails. That’s fine, and sure, each state needs it’s own Hot Box to handle damage control on all the ridiculous lies and spin that comes out of the media. But that isn’t us. We can’t be in every state monitoring every news source. I mean we could I suppose, if we were properly funded, but alas, we’re not. So until we figure things out, enjoy and pass around the 128 episodes of this show we’ve produced, absolutely free, to the people who need a laugh and a little education in their lives.

Ep 7: Black Market Mentality

“I just thought of it, I was stoned and I thought of it.”

Welcome, welcome to show number seven, and our first guest Mark! Things are still going super duper well at the office, even though groups out there will have you believe that dispensaries bring crime waves. I haven’t seen one violent criminal act toward myself or anyone else, so maybe you don’t know it ALL.  On a couple lil side notes, Marc Emery is out of solitary confinement!!  He was released at the start of July after nearly four weeks in the hole. Please still write letters and do what you can to show support!! Also there is a Montana Medical Growers Association (MMGA) meeting July 20th at 6:00pm in the Kalispell library, if you’re not from Kalispell go to montanamedicalgrowers.org to see chapters in your area.  Safe Community Safe Kids is about a week away from dead line for signatures but they are just over 8,000 of the needed 25,000 so pretty sure I stand by my previous statement that this was an epic fail.  Finally, testimonials are being requested for use in Helena from Medical Marijuana patients, please send them to ed.tamarack@gmail.com.  Now ladies and gents, light em if you got em cause we’re starting the show!
