This week we take a look at the President’s latest pardon and what it might portend for the fall campaign season.  And then we turn our attention to America’s neighbor to the north, as they reach a landmark in legal sales. And finally, we look at the rest of the world and some of the progress on legalization that’s happening outside the United States.

 

We’ll be discussing all this and more on the best marijuana podcast in the business.

 

As we like to say around here, “Everyone knows what happened in marijuana today, but you need to know what’s happening in Marijuana Tomorrow!”
