TWC had the opportunity to preview the video back in May. Nicely done I thought. Great stuff I thought. I didn't think it would garner this kind of media attention. Ever. Which, of course, is why Las Vegas isn't on line 2 calling for my advice on handicapping the 7th at Santa Anita. Despite my lack of foresight, I am delighted.
For those who don't recall, in 1996 the Golden State legalized cannabis for medical purposes. Since then, under Democrat and Republican administrations in DC the DEA has made it a point to periodically raid and otherwise harass legal dispensaries. Please Note: I've held my tongue about presidential nose candy and the inhalation blues (or lack thereof), neither of which, as I recall, were for medicinal purposes.
As you might expect, the video is well done. Drew's a great host. Throw in PF Bentley working with guys like Ted Balaker and Paul Feine at Reason (who are no slouches themselves), you end up with most excellent stuff (smirks). More on those guys here.
