On today's show: John Sinclair, Josey Scoggin, Amie Carter, Tom Beller
Or any business properly before JCC
The crew continues the discussion about the horrible package of bills circulating in the Michigan House of Representatives. They are joined by the legendary John Sinclair, about whom John Lennon sang a song, and Josey Scoggin, of whom somebody should sing a song.
Join Jazz Cabbage hosts Jamie Lowell and Rick Thompson as they talk about all things cannabis in Michigan. Today the team actually talks about the John Sinclair birthday party, which was mentioned in brief last week. Held in Flint at the Genesee County Compassion Club, Mr Sinclair was treated to accolades and visits from a Senator, 'Boogie Bob' Baldori, several Council members from Michigan municipalities, out-of-state special guests and lots of love from his Michigan cannabis family.
The team continues their evaluation of the proceedings of the Regulatory Reform Committee as they 'debated' the merits and failures of HBs 5300-5302. The hearing featured a series of testimony segments from bill supporters and then a few moments were given to sick patients and advocates. Thompson testified and was gaveled down by Chair Rep. Roger Hauck for disputing previous testimony.
Josey Scoggin talks about the Great Lakes Expungement Network. There are difficulties in getting expungements for cannabis crimes in Michigan, compared to other types of criminal records. Amie Carter joins in the discussion as she details her experience giving testimony in the Regulatory Reform Committee, right after Thompson was gaveled down and ejected from the podium. Tom Beller, owner of Real Leaf Solutions, joins later in the show to provide the perspective of a regulated business owner who supports caregiver rights and hates these bills.
