Northwest Cannacast – “Still Prosecuting Pot Crimes” (S2ep40)

(2018)  When the U.S. Attorney General told his underlings at the state level to enforce federal laws, some did, and some are focused on other things.  But does prosecuting pot crime make any sense as more states legalize the substance?

In this Newsbuds edition of Northwest Cannacast, we tackle that question, which is raised by a recent editorial written by the state of Washington’s federal attorney.  Also on this week’s show, we discuss the following statistic: of the drivers being killed on America’s roads, more have drugs in their system than those with alcohol.  Who has the responsibility to remind drivers just because cannabis is legal doesn’t mean you can drive while high?

Northwest Cannacast is “60 Minutes meets Legal Cannabis,” and is a news magazine show designed to promote information, perspective, and understanding.  Enjoy this week’s episode, and be sure to listen for this week’s bonus feature at the end of the show.
