Description

In 2016, California voters made legal the cultivation, use, possession, transfer, and sale of recreational marijuana. The law went into full effect on January 1, 2018. How will this new law effect business drug policies?  A provision in the new law allows businesses to continue to completely ban marijuana use at work, to test applicants and present employees, and to terminate employees and refuse to hire applicants who violate business drug policies.


San Diego attorney Ward Heinrichs discusses the employment laws and drug policies regarding recreational cannabis and the workplace. Read his article on BlendRadioandTV.com.

While media pundits and other experts debate the impact Russia had on the 2016 election, a riveting short documentary exposing the harsh voter suppression laws that prohibit 6.1 million Americans from voting, is fast becoming a rallying call for youth to participate in the midterm elections. Filmed in Tampa, 2 days before the 2016 presidential election, this verité short covers a day-in-the-life of civil rights activist, Desmond Meade. It's Sunday, “Souls to the Polls,” the last day of early voting. Desmond is canvasing door to door. His mission? “Assisting people in voting - something our "forefathers marched and died for." On this episode of Big Blend Radio, acclaimed film director Gilda Ann Brasch discusses Let My People Vote, the 2018 award winning short documentary on voter suppression released through her media start-up, VUSI Filmworks.

Most recently Brasch executive produced five seasons of VH1's hit franchise "Love & Hip Hop." Inspired after meeting Nelson Mandela in South Africa, and filming in his prison cell of 27 years, Brasch founded VUSI Filmworks with a focus on filmmaking for social change.This episode was sponsored by the National Parks Arts Foundation who creates unique artist-in-residence programs in park units within the National Parks Service.
