This week we look at the State of the States as some unexpected legislatures are moving their legalization bills forward, even as some of the 2020 legalization states stall, or move backwards.  

And then we turn our attention to Washington, DC, as the cannabis industry gets some new advocates on the block as President Obama’s former HHS Secretary and former Governor of Kansas, Kathleen Sebelius, joins the National Cannabis Roundtable as an honorary co-chair. Meanwhile, the Marijuana Policy Project’s Executive Director Steve Hawkins announces his new org, the United States Cannabis Council.  We look at who's in and who's out of this new industry group.

And finally, we look at a story in the SF Weekly that argues, "You're Buying Your Weed Wrong." Are they right?

We’ll be discussing all this and more on the BEST cannabis 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!” ----more----SHOW NOTES
