HBP 163: Gooey Rabinski

Play

Marijuana podcasting right here, right now, with the Hot Box and Gooey Rabinski. Gooey has been writing and following this weed counter culture stuff for a while now, so much in fact he wrote a little book entitled Understanding Medical Marijuana. You can get a copy on Amazon here, and be sure to check out his site over at GooeyRabinski.com. He’s also a contributing editor to Whaxy. Thanks for listening, and we’ll be seeing you soon.

Actually, sooner than you might think. We’ll be at the Northwest Cannabis Classic Saturday August 29th and Sunday August 30th at the Tacoma Armory. Come say high if you see me and the Professor walking around. We’ll be talking terpenes and business with anyone interested in having their poop soup processed into that golden goodness.

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!

On today’s episode of the Hot Box we have a fantastic chat with Molly Peckler from Highly Devoted. Molly is the dating coach and relationship expert the cannabis community has been waiting for, and after hearing our discussion, you’ll know why. I also want to give a huge thanks to all of our supporters giving us cool stuff to give away. The Vuber Atlas give away has come and gone, and the two winners have been notified. I know you both will love the Atlas as much as I do. I should also mention Herb Boxx for giving us an awesome, elegant box to keep our weed stuff in.

I also want to give a shout to all the pretty stoner ladies on Instagram sending us their #HotBoxPodcast fansigns! Keep them coming! We have a bunch of great interviews coming up, as well as some regular episodes where I get stoned and talk to friends about cannabis. Thanks for listening, and stay tuned for more awesome marijuana love.

Play

The internet is fixed and we have two great interviews for you in this almost two hour long episode of the Hot Box. It’s just our little way of saying thank you. Speaking of saying thank you, keep reading down in the show notes to find out how you can win a free Vuber Atlas from Jim at Vuber Technologies and a Globe attachment courtesy of Andrew at Growers Outlet. Did I mention that it’s free? That’s like pretty much giving you a hundred dollars. I thought I was the one supposed to be making money. I kid. But seriously, you want this vape.

I reviewed it here on Stuff Stoners Like, so check it out, then leave us a comment or send an email to info@hotboxpodcast.com with what you would vape in your new Vuber Atlas. Winners will be drawn randomly out of Herb Boxx on Tuesday, July 28th 2015. Read on towards the end of the show notes for the rest of the details. Also be sure to follow Vuber and Growers Outlet on Instagram. You should probably give me a follow while you’re there also.

HBP 159: Grasping for Straws

Play

Welcome back to another fresh episode of the Hot Box marijuana podcast. In today’s episode, I have to start out by apologizing for the bandwidth issues. Apparently there was a problem with the line box that was causing my connection to reset. The hangouts audio might be a little better if you want to watch the live show, but I cleaned up the podcast audio as best as I could. All that aside let’s welcome Nathan Betts back to the show to talk about some updates in Clarkston, and some other interesting marijuana news. Be sure to subscribe to the show in iTunes and write us a review. We’re also on Stitcher, and of course, YouTube. You can also catch all the good stuff stoners like I’m writing about on my SSL page.

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

Play

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.
