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.

Ep 73: The Party Party

“No one should go to jail for pot.”

Coming to you live from the 2011 Garden City Cannabis Expo in Missoula Montana at the university. We had such a great time, met a ton of really super cool people, and saw some seriously awesome stuff. Oh yea, and my prediction that this weekend long party of “pot heads” would come and go with ZERO problems. Problems you might expect to deal with when a group of people start getting wasted on the “Devil Plant.” Yeppers, not one single stabbing, rape, or gun shot the whole weekend, not by us anyways. We should be proud. Anyways, do you see how silly that sounds? Yes, now stop lying to the people who make our laws. You know how easily they can be swayed. Just takes the right kind of green, if you know what I mean. If you want more audio from the Garden City Cannabis Expo, check out the two special episodes we released. There is the group discussion and the panel talk.

We do a short 15 minute or so episode of the Hot Box due to some scheduling interference, but no worries, because we have enough interviews to turn this 15 minute episode into almost two hours worth of words YOU NEED TO LISTEN TO! You’re welcome, just trying to do our part in clearing up all the dangerous misinformation out there. So after the show, stick around and catch our interviews with such amazing humans as:

John Masterson – Montana NORML
Ed Docter – Kush Magazine
Noel – Montana Botanical Analysis
Chris Lindsey – Lindsey Law Firm
Rose Habib –¬†CannabAnalysis
Dennis – Veterans Rep for Montanan’s for Responsible Legislation
Mimi – Montanan’s for Responsible Legislation
Doug Chayette – Montanan’s for Responsible Legislation

And of course make sure you stick around till the very end, to hear a very awesome, very special interview with Oaksterdamn professor, cannabotanist¬†extraordinaire, the Big Book of Buds and Ask Ed man himself, Ed Rosenthal! Check out Daily Buds, Quick Trading Company, and his blog. If you were at the expo in person, you could have done this! Honestly, that was one of the coolest sessions I’ve ever had the pleasure to partake in.

Overall, this should be a great episode, so sit back, and blaze one for the nation. She sure could use it. Did I mention Senator Dave Wanzenried was there? I’m rendering his talk along with the question and answer as I type this, so keep checking back on the Hot Box YouTube page to watch it. Also, make sure you show some support to our friends, they are all doing great things in the field of Cannabis. Make sure you catch our Tuesday episode as we bring you a wrap up of the whole weekend, and show you some really cool stuff we found while wandering the expo. If you want to have more discussions with us about anything, join us on the Hot Box forums.
