When a kid at work offered to give him some cannabis to help him he recoiled in disgust at smoking pot.

After Sharon Letts was diagnosed with breast cancer Pearl Moon showed up on her doorstep with a jar of cannabis oil.  Sharon was a documentarian and research writer by trade, so she was incredulous that cannabis could help her.  If cannabis had healing properties she would know. Right? Wrong! Cannabis not only helped her sleep & eased her pain; it obliterated her tumor.  But it also helped her plainly see all the government propaganda about the plant for what it was - outright lies. Now a writer for multiple cannabis related publications Sharon is hoping to bring cannabis as medicine to television via her connections in the mainstream media.

While living in California Robert Cartee & his wife discovered different varieties of cannabis worked better to treat their ailments than any prescription drugs they'd tried.  Tired of living on top of other people in Cali Robert & Tracey moved to rural Georgia and built their dream home.  Cannabis was & is still illegal in Georgia so Robert had a room built in their new home where their medicine could be grown inconspicuously.  About 2 years ago a deputy arrived at their home wanting to search the property for illegal drugs, and when the Cartees declined to subject themselves to an unreasonable search, the deputy made a call to a local judge.  Within minutes he had a warrant and their home was surrounded by deputies & SWAT team members.  Despite only growing a dozen plants, the Cartees were charged with intent to distribute & were facing decades in jail.  Despite tremendous pressure to accept a plea bargain, the Cartees and their attorney, the indomitable Catherine Bernard, refused to plead.  They filed a motion to suppress & recently had all charges dismissed.   Listen in as Robert & I discuss his case in more detail & examine the injustices of the criminal justice system.

Julie Mejia was only in her 20's when she was attacked by a cognitively impaired client at her place of employment. She was injured on her right side from her neck to her ankle. Days, weeks, and months went by and her body did not heal as it should. Even worse the pain began to spread along the entirety of the right side of her body.

Desperate for relief she tried cannabis on a trip to Colorado, and the results were life changing. Now Julie helps other patients like herself by creating hemp based products & offering holistic health consulting.

Scott Horton returns for a discussion on SWAT raids which have become a staple of the local law enforcement in the United States' War on Drugs.  It's estimated that 50,000 SWAT raids take place each year across America - a stat that is unrealized by and unfathomable to most Americans.  We also discuss the overall militarization of police, qualified immunity and possible solutions to get all Americans on the same page when it comes to the use of excessive force by LEO's and holding bad actors accountable for their misdeeds.

Suzanne Sherman aka The Red Hot Chilly Prepper and host of The Wasatch Report joins me today for a discussion about medical cannabis laws & how it can affect patients' rights to bear arms.  Most state cannabis laws don't provide protections from the federal government for patients who choose to exercise their rights to bear arms.  So a medical cannabis license holder or an adult use partaker cannot purchase a firearm from a local gun shop that is a Federal Firearms Licensee without lying on the Firearms Transaction Record form 4473.  Lying on this form is perjury and punishable by a prison sentence up to 5 years.  Until the states agree to protect cannabis users from federal gun overreach, users of cannabis - and particularly those with a medical card - are at risk of having their right to bear arms infringed by the Feds. But wait there's more!  We also touch on a range of topics like COVID-19, federal supremacy, nullification & civil asset forfeiture.  Today's episode is a veritable treasure trove of liberty related topics, but you might want to wear your steel toed boots.  Because Suzanne and I do a little toe stomping.

My jaw nearly hit the floor when Bridget Dandaraw-Serritt listed off her autoimmune disorders with - lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, & Sjögren syndrome.  And per Bridget this is just the tip of the iceberg. Each of these ailments is debilitating in and of itself, but the combination of the above .  Using cannabis allowed her to get off of 9 prescription medications. Which is great because she was taking over 6,000 pills each year!  Cannabis has yielded her a plethora of other health benefits.  Her lupus is now in remission, and she lost 60 pounds once she got off all the prednisone.  Plant based medicine has been a huge boon for Bridget.

Join Bretigne Shaffer and I as we take a trip down the rabbit hole of medical freedom.  Bretigne is a longtime libertarian journalist, and she's a resident of California.  There has been a push in recent years in CA (and several states) to mandate vaccines for children.  And in some of those states there are no medical exemptions - even for kids who have had past reactions to vaccines (like our guest from Monday's show, Sarah).  This overstep by government is quite alarming to liberty lovers like myself and Bretigne.  So I wanted to discuss this issue and expand on some of the topics Sarah brought up in Monday's episode.  We hope to strip the emotion out of this subject and approach this issue like we do cannabis - on the basis of natural rights, bodily autonomy, and personal liberty.  I hope you'll join us on this little jaunt. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Sarah Morris first remembers blacking out when she was 5 years old, but she wasn't diagnosed with dysautonomia until almost 25 years later.  Dysautonomia is a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system.  You know that system of the body that handles trivial things like  circulation, temperature regulation, digestion, etc.  And Sarah has had difficulty in all these areas.  She can get hypothermia in the middle of the summer in Georgia.  She has a Groshong line inserted into her vein to allow for easier access when she needs iv fluids, and she also has a lot of trouble with digestion.  Her body lives in a fight or flight state.  But cannabis helps ease her nausea and allows her to eat and gets her parasympathetic system to kick in so her adrenals are not in overdrive.   Cannabis allows her to be herself in spite of her many health issues.
