On this week's episode of the Web's Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend reports that leading UK peers, including former heads of MI5, the CPS and the BBC have joined forces with the Beckley Foundation to call for new policies to replace the failed War on Drugs, and bring scientific evidence back into the UK's drug laws, while the British Medical Journal agains suggests the legalization of cannabis. Moving to the emails, the Dopefiend talks about the risks, or lack thereof, of vaporizers with aluminium components, and we hear from long-term DopeTriber Camo about how his life has changed since his first email to the Dopecast four years ago, and how he struggles with the mighty dose of THC that the iolite vaporizer deals him. Heading into the VaporLounge, the Dopefiend fires up the Volcano for a taste of Purple Kush and a brief mention for the impending Dopestock celebrations in Amsterdam, then connects with DopeTribe elder Larz, who tells a scary story about how his shopping habits have led to him being under surveillance. Following a musical interlude from loudscape, the Dopefiend turns to the saga of the Gremlin of Ganja's absence from the DopeTribe, and an extraordinary new email, his first communication with the Dopecast in 2 months, which threatens to shake the DopeTribe to its very core. Finally, in this week's Cannabis News: a new wave of raids on medical marijuana dispensaries sweeps the United States, amid evidence of a new federal policy of zero tolerance on MMJ, the war on cannabis costs New York City $75 million a year, mayors in British Columbia call for an overhaul on medical marijuana grow-ops, a UK health authority refuses to allow cannabis-based sativex medication for MS sufferers, and DopeTriber Smoke Jaguar's first ever Breaking Convention gears up for a weekend full of music, lectures and other psychedelic activity. Email, send us a voicemail, follow @dopefiend and the new Virtual VaporLounge on twitter, and check out the forum.

Podcast Image by King Lou: "Here's my contribution. It's a lovely Sheldon Black 6 arm bubbler that I bought a while back. I hardly use it since I bought the iolite but its still nice for when friends come over. Much easier than trying to explain the iolite to them." Submit your pics here:
