On this week's episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend kicks things off by talking about the lies told by governments around the world in an attempt to curb the use of Cannabis, why the United States government is the biggest culprit, and how they're being fought on their own turf by the rising tide of pro-cannabis state law, including the current move to legalize cannabis outright in California. After a brief reminder of next week's Dopefiend gathering at the Big Chill festival and our other upcoming live events at the Notting Hill Carnival and the UK Hemp Expo, the Dopefiend hits the emails, starting with some info on tobacco alternatives, some general ethnobotanical chat and an offer of free Salvia cuttings from Dank Avenger, prompting some Salvia cultivation advice from the Dopefiend, and an incredible Salvia trip report and some words of advice from Gwiito for first-time Salvia trippers, followed by some questions about "grit weed" and other adulterated cannabis from new HerbalAire owner Old Brasso, prompting the Dopefiend to head into the VaporLounge and hit some Jack Herer while talking about the possibilities of making a Volcano-style vaporizer from a pop-corn machine, and whether the Exteme Vaporizer or the HerbalAire is the best Volcano alternative. After a musical interlude submitted by DaddyGreenJeans, the Dopefiend reads an email from Komrade, who's just returned to Cannabis after a 15-year break, zatoeric explains what a green-friendly cleaning company is, and describes his solar-powered smoking method, and FunkyMarque waxes lyrical about the beauty of Blue Cheese. In the cannabis News, an update on the status of British DJ Grooverider, still languishing in jail in Dubai, the news that Massachussets is moving to ban Salvia Divinorum, among some other things, the threat to UK growers from the North Yorkshire Police's heat-seeking helicopter, and the huge Cannabis bust that fell apart in court due to glory-hunting cops. Email, send us a voicemail and drop by our Skype Virtual VaporLounge, and check out the forum.
