On this week's episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast,
the Dopefiend talks about the pervasive culture that has grown
around cannabis, and how it is this rather than the plant's effects
that draws so many of us into habitual use. With this in mind, the
Dopefiend talks to Martin A. Lee, the author of the fascinating new
social history of cannabis, Smoke Signals, about the heroes and
villains of the story of cannabis, why the War on Drugs has always
been a racial issue and a civil rights issue, how the biphasic,
seemingly contradictory effects of cannabis are borne out in the
story of cannabis itself, the astonishing medicinal properties of
cannabinoids, including the often forgotten CBD, about which Martin
works hard to educate, and why it is that cannabis has such a
mindblowing variety of medical applications, and whether our body
politic is capable of healing itself of the pathology of
prohibition. Heading into the VaporLounge, the Dopefiend heads into
the VaporLounge to sample a little bit of DopeCave Cup winner
TopMonkeyBoy's latest Great White Shark. After a musican interlude,
Homer brings us the latest Cannabis News from his sickbed,
including the growers busted after growing a six-foot cannabis
plant, the unwitting elderly couple shocked by the monstrous growth
of their own cannabis plant, the increasing popularity of cannabis
growing in Afghanistan, and yet another advisory committee
recommends that the British government should decriminalise drug
use, while another report suggests alcohol-related hospital
admissions are an unnecessary burden on the health service. Email
