C-Realm Radio 028: Update on Drug War and Threats against CBD


(The C-Realm Podcast)

It sometimes seems like the war on weed is all but over, and then Donald Trump goes and picks Jeff Sessions to be his attorney general, a man who joked that he thought the KKK was okay until he learned that they smoke pot. KMO and Silas speak first to Julie Goddard about the DEA’s subtle rule change that makes CBD, a non-psychoactive constituent of the hemp plant that has a variety of medical applications, a Schedule 1 substance like heroin. Later, Doug Fine calls in with a dose of optimism. He points to the 2014 Farm Bill which defines the parameters of legal hemp cultivation. He argues that the DEA will be in violation of federal law if they try to persecute hemp farmers because their product contains CBD.
