Have you ever been in a float tank? Kyle has, and he tells us all about it. I definitely want to try this.

In political marijuana news, the California Democrats are adding marijuana legalization to the party platform. Gavin Newsom, Lt. Governor of California pitched the idea during the Democrats’ three day convention. Molly Reilly wrote about it on the Huffington Post.

The old folks are smoking more weed. At least more of them are talking about it. Either that or more of them are getting cancer. I really don’t have anything to back that up with. Either way, check out the article by Yagana Shah over on the Huff Po.


It’s tax time! It’s weird how a pot business can’t write off things, but a non pot related business can. Why do you have to discriminate? Karen Weise wrote about it here on Bloomberg Businessweek.

Robert Duncan is going to prison because he worked at a pot shop that was legal in his state. Weird right? You got in trouble for doing so much business. Where the hell is the equality! This is total dicks. Matt Ferner and Carly Schwartz wrote about it here on the Huff Po.


Dr. Sanjay Gupta is doubling down on the weed stuff. Politicians should listen up. This is how you apologize for misleading the people to think something that is non harmful is actually a deadly rape drug. Thank you Dr. Gupta. Now let’s get a rescheduling going please. Read Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s article here on CNN Health.

Denver is having a job fair this week. If you want to work with cannabis, Denver is the place to be. Brad Tuttle wrote about it on Time.


We talked about the medical marijuana refugees a bit in the last couple of episodes. There have now been over 100 families in the last eight months who have moved to Colorado to get the medical marijuana they need for themselves, and their children. Saundra Young wrote about it on CNN.

Not all doctors are on board with the whole medical marijuana legalization movement. Some doctors are completely blind to the fact of how many people abuse the pain killers and other pills they prescribe. Please update your argument Dr. Carrie Borchardt. Thanks! Christopher Snowbeck wrote about it on TwinCities.com.

Watch Cosmos with your kids. They will thank you for it.

We’re going to end with a new track my GU friends and I made. Check it out here on SoundCloud!
