On this week's epsiode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend is LIVE on the banks of the River Thames with Dopetriber Esse B and Dopefiend.co.uk's resident entheo-pundit Max Freakout to talk in detail about the extraordinary story of Esse B's 11-year battle against the bizarre condition Cannabinoid Hyperemesis, the symptoms, the cause, the misdiagnoses, and the response from the cannabis community to the discovery of this condition. The discussion then moves on to how the pro-legalization movement can be as blinkered and as guilty of spreading unfounded propaganda as the prohibition movement, and why it's important to speak with honesty about cannabis, and how it can be a positive move to reduce one's cannabis intake anyway. Next up, the trio fire up the iolite and pack it full of some tasty Blue Cheese while talking about the origins of UK Cheese and the UK breeding scene, and whether the true original UK Cheese is still available anywhere. Following a hardcore musical interlude, the three Dopetribe representatives relocate to the very windy water's edge for a chat about this year's UK festival season, with Esse B giving his views of the recent GocStock festival, and Max Freakout and the Dopefiend looking ahead to the ever-approaching Big Chill, which is shaping up to be an absolute monster, featuring many mind-bending substances and thousands of zombies. Finally, the Dopefiend, Esse B and Max Freakout talk about a couple of this month's Cannabis News stories, starting with the mainstream press's insistence that a 17 year-old chef died due to being "ravaged" by cannabis use, and the positive news that more than half of all those fined since the introduction of tougher cannabis laws in the UK have refused to pay up.
