Joining us today-
Proposed changes to the Caregiver system
Rally at the Capitol to protect Caregiver rights
Entheofest makes it debut Sunday in Ann Arbor
Join Jazz Cabbage hosts Jamie Lowell and Rick Thompson as they feature discussion about two significant upcoming events: the Entheofest in Ann Arbor and the September 15 Rally on the steps of the Capitol Building in Lansing.
Ryan Bringold, the activist who led the team in preparing Bridge Walk 2021, is the driving force behind the September 25 rally. Caregivers and patient laws in Michigan are threatened by new legislation sponsored by the hated Michigan Cannabis Manufacturer's Association; the rally is a direct response to that action. The four hour protest will feature Rep. Cynthia Johnson; Thompson, Brook, Lowell and Bringold as featured speakers/Emcees; impassioned pleas from sick people and those who love them to not alter the state's 12-year old medical cannabis program; and a roadmap of everything we hate about the new proposals.
Jim Salame, a Cabbage Patch regular cast member and one of the primary organizers of Entheofest 2021, joins to talk about this first-ever happening. Entheogenic substances are the cacti, peyote, mushrooms and chemical agents capable of creating 'psychedelic' experiences.
Those substances are now legal to possess and cultivate in Ann Arbor, Michigan, due to the work of Decriminalize Nature Ann Arbor, of which Mr Salame is a principal. The Entheofest will go down on the same ground as Hash Bash, an area called The Diag on the home campus of the University of Michigan. Speakers will include Native American artist and cultural leader 'Barking Dog' Darrel Brown, the Tamerrian Society, Julie Baron, and is hosted by Anqunette Sarfoh.
The Jazz Cabbage cast of regulars include Jim Salame (The Entheo Show, Decriminalize MI) Debra Young (MiLegalize) Adam L Brook (Medical Mondays, 'Mr. Hash Bash') Rick Thompson (MiNORML, Four20Post, Weed Talk News) and Jamie Lowell (Michigan ASA, The Botanical Company, Medical Mondays) and Shelly Smith (Reads and Weeds).
