HBP 160: Cycling for Sensible Drug Policy and Vuber Technologies


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.

In today’s episode we talk to the guy that’s riding his bike across Montana to gather signatures for a re-legalization initiative to get on the ballot. Be sure to follow his progress on the Facebook group Cycling for Sensible Drug Policy.

The Hot Box supports what Anthony is trying to accomplish here, and after talking to him on the show, I really feel like he has the potential to make it happen. We just have to get people to unify and rally behind this cause. We’ll be checking in with Anthony as his ride unfolds.

Montana Public Radio has a post about the three possible initiatives that could show up on the ballot in Montana this November.

How do you feel about Steve Zabawa? I feel sorry for Montana if he gets his initiative on the ballot. That “human” is something else. He is completely delusional in his perception of what he thinks is going on in states that have re-legalized recreational cannabis.

As someone who lives in one of those states, not by choice really, but because of an amazing job opportunity. I see this madness he speaks of, and guess what? It’s non existent. He should really go see a doctor and get some more medicine for that brain of his.

There’s another article in the Missoulian talking about the recreational cannabis initiative.

Have you seen the 502 data? For how long this has actually been a thing, look at that chart. Industry that’s allowed far more leniency wishes it had growth like the cannabis industry has growth. Even in the face of mass political corruption and greed, raids by the feds, and negative propaganda since the early 20s. It still gets the job done.

RT also has an article about how much tax money Washington has generated.

Contrary to all the lies, marijuana use among teens is not up. Go figure, the kids are smarter than you think.

Check out my review of this piece of glass that wishes it was a Nectar Collector. If you watch the live show, you can see what a REAL Nectar Collector looks like. I’ll be doing a full video review and write up over on Stuff Stoners Like later this week.

For now, go check out their site, and if you follow NectarCollector710 on Instagram you’ll get the word on a super sweet sale their having. It ends Thursday, so get on that shit. I can’t tell you how excited I am to actually have a real Nectar Collector. This thing is so cool.

Let’s also welcome Jim Makoso from Vuber Technologies to the Hot Box. We talk about the vape industry, how technology has changed over the years, as have the extraction techniques. It’s really cool stuff.

To show some love for our little weed show, Jim has given us two brand new Vuber Atlas vapes to give away! All submissions must be in by Monday, July 27th. Winners will be randomly chosen out of Herb Boxx on Tuesday July 28th. This time you can do things socially to get more entries in the box. Here’s how.

Follow Vuber, Growers Outlet, and me on Instagram. For each account you follow, you get one extra entry into the box. If you send us a fan pick that expresses how much you love the Hot Box, that will also get you an extra entry. Writing the Hot Box a review in iTunes will also get you an extra entry. Liking Vuber, Growers Outlet, and the Hot Box on Facebook will each get you one extra entry. That’s so many possible extra entries. Make sure you check out my review on Stuff Stoners Like of the Vuber Atlas. Then you’ll know how bad you want it.

Once you have done all these things, send the email with what you would smoke in the vape and list the extra entries you qualify for. It might seem like a lot of work, but this is like $200.00 worth of vapes and globes we’re giving away. You’re gonna have to work for it.

In other cannabis news…

The sheriff of King County was interviewed and asked about his thoughts on being the sheriff who has to deal with all these stoners in Seattle. His response was brilliant, and I wrote about it for SSL.

Those damn racketeering laws will get you every time.

Senators and their banking laws. Here to “save the day” at last. I guess they finally figured out how to turn a fat profit.
