On this week's episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend looks into this week's resignation of Professor Sir Michael Rawlings, the chairman of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs following the government's decision to ignore their recent report on UK Cannabis Law, and his replacement, Professor David Nutt, most famous for his suggestion that Ecstasy be downgraded to class B, addresses some feedback on last week's news of the reclassification of Cannabis, and how it's actually mobilizing more Cannabis users to become active in the fight for legalization, reads an email from Kenzler who's trying to replace the pharmaceuticals his doctor pushed on him with Cannabis, and how to cope with anti-drug propaganda from the medical profession, and whether there's any truth to his doctor's claim that Cannabis use makes men grow breasts! The Dopefiend then answers a query concerning nausea brought on by occasional Cannabis use, what causes it, and what can be done about it, then he heads into the vaporlounge for a taste of some fruity Kahuna and a chat about vaporizers in general and where to get hold of one, then after a percussive musical interlude the Dopefiend investigates the phenomenon of "Hard Ash" weed and what sort of adulteration causes it, then returns to the subject of how Cannabis use affects dreaming, and calls for more listener input on the matter, and talks about how Cannabis combined with exercise can help you lose weight! After an incredible story from Christine about how positive thinking can influence your life, the Dopefiend finishes the show off with news of another Medical Marijuana patient being denied a life-saving kidney transplant, and how hemp is becoming the new crop of choice for Northern Irish farmers.
