Thanks for checking out another episode of the Hot Box marijuana podcast! Mat Lee here with a couple of great interviews to get your mind right. First up I chat with Montana patient outreach advocate and all around humanitarian of the year, each year every year, Tayln Lang. He’s going to give us an update on where Montana stands with it’s medical cannabis industry, and what Montanan’s can expect to see on the ballot in regards to cannabis this upcoming cycle. It’s good news, but the fight is far from over.

After that, and what you’ll see on the live show, is my interview with Abdullah Saeed. You might be familiar with him from Vice, or possibly Smokables on YouTube, or from his musical work. He’s got a new show on Viceland called Vice Does America. I chat with him about that, and a whole bunch of other random stuff. All in all another fantastic episode. I also have some other cool news. We’re getting some new graphics made for the show. Something more professional and fun. I also contracted out a new intro track to my brother who makes beats. So once the artwork is finished, we’ll be all fresh, shiny, and new for the first time in a long time. Thanks for sticking with the show.

HBP 182: The Interviewer

Welcome back to another episode. This one is a little different. Some of you may or may not know, but I recently started a new line of work. Medical cannabis in Washington ended on July 1st, and thus my job running the lab. No worries though, because the magazine I was writing for in my spare time scooped me up and sent me packing to the Imperious Expo + Directory in Tacoma to get some content created.

This is super cool for a bunch of reasons. Mostly because I get to go around and check out all the dope cannabis business stuff, rec shops, labs, and grows. This also is great for the Hot Box, because while I’m out there gathering content for the magazine, I’ll be doing the same for this! I know right? Win. Win.

HBP 162: Canna 4 Life Update

Play

Thanks for checking out the show. On today’s episode I once again speak with Nathan Betts from Canna 4 Life in Clarkston Washington to get an update on how things are going with their city council. Doesn’t seem too good. An interesting conversation has been sparked on the Free the Choice in Clarkston Facebook group. It’s sad to see people still clinging to the Schedule 1 excuse. But, that’s how it goes when small town city council humans are allowed to run their little town completely unchecked. Meanwhile in the rest of the state where cannabis has been embraced, people are doing fantastic. It’s really heartbreaking to see how much damage can be done by a few (allegedly) corrupt humans.

I also want to mention we’ll be at Hempfest in Seattle Friday. If you see me wandering around with the fire princess, make sure to say high! Enjoy the show!

HBP 158: Nathan Betts

Play

It’s not all happy pot plants, sunshine, and rainbows here in Washington. While some towns and counties have completely embraced the cannabis industry, others have not been so inviting. As we’ll hear in episode 158 of the Hot Box, Nathan Betts is living in one such town. But rather than try to shut down the cannabis industry the corrupt “legal way” like was tried in Montana with the medical marijuana industry, this small town city council in Clarkston Washington has gone above and beyond the standards for corruption in any size town. Keep reading for links to more information and what you can do to help. We also announce the winner of the Herb Boxx giveaway. Thanks for listening!

HBP 157: Herb Boxx

The re legalization of cannabis for medical, and more recently recreational use has opened the door to a lot of cool new companies. On the Hot Box podcast, I’ve interviewed quite a few, most recently Derek Silverio from Lifted Industry, Alison Parker from Dude Where’s my Ferret, and Marshall Hayner from Trees.Delivery. On Friday I had a chance to chat with Kenya Brantley from Herb Boxx.

Kenya has been kind enough to offer to sponsor the show. You’ve probably noticed that all of the shows I host are ad free. I like to keep them that way for one main reason. I don’t like ads. What I do like is watching all of these new businesses emerge with the birth of the cannabis industry. This happens to be something I’m passionate about. So passionate in fact I moved to Washington to pursue a career in it. You can read about that here on Stuff Stoners Like article about weed refugees. So with that rationale moving forward, sure, if you make something cool, send it to me, and if I think it’s awesome and use it, I’ll be happy to talk about it on the show.
