On this week's episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend talks about the planned Dutch coffeeshop strike, and whether it will succeed in its aim of encouraging Dutch cannabis conumers to get out and vote to save their way of life, leading to a mention for the forthcoming Dopestock celebrations this April in Amsterdam, and the quandary facing stoner voters in the United Kingdom this May. Turning to the emails, the Dopefiend returns to the subject of whether taking breaks form regular cannabis use is a good idea, and whether daily cannabis use is often a means of mitigating repressed psychological distress, including some interesting input regarding one's "cannabis retention index", and cannabis as a treatment for hyperactivity. Following a story about some primo bud lost down a dog's throat, and a brief poetic contribution from Podders, the Dopefiend fires up his iolite for the first time in four weeks and talks about his ritual of cannabis use, and how cutting back on herb has increased his enjoyment of it, how plans for Dopestock are coming together, and a drop in the price of the iolite vaporizer . After a reggae-tastic musical interlude, the Dopefiend returns to the emails and talk of whether the joys of Amsterdam ever get boring, why legalization could save Washington over $100 million a year, and Hippy Man tells of another perfect day in the Netherlands. After another report from Christine and a brand new Vaporizer Revolutionary at the Portland, Oregon NORML Cannabis Cafe, the Dopefiend turns to the Cannabis News, and word of an impending ban on the press's demonic party drug of the moment, Mephedrone, Craig X Rubin faces jail time following a trumped-up probation violation, along with a dispensary owner accused of selling pot for profit, Czech stoners celebrate their new laws on cannabis possession, Howard Marks lends his support to the forthcoming Mr Nice movie, and Popeye's customers get an unwanted free gift with their fries!
