Podcast: Bill Nye sciences the heck out of marijuana for Netflix

Venerable entertainer and mechanical engineer Bill Nye – famous for his schtick as ‘the science guy’ – returns to Netflix Dec. 29 for season two of his Emmy-nominated series Bill Nye Saves the World. The season debuts with an episode centered around marijuana. I also didn’t really know the history of marijuana becoming schedule 1 and I didn’t really know how the medical profession feels about marijuana. People use marijuana for everything medically and there’s questions about how it affects you when you’re young, like drinking like alcohol. So we investigated this and the upshot is if anybody tells you he knows all about marijuana and how it works he really doesn’t. 

You would buy and sell the marijuana species as the reefer of the realm. There’s no question that men’s sperm is affected by marijuana smoking. I will say also as a taxpayer and voter I hope it doesn’t become so readily accepted that people smoke all the time the way they used to smoke cigarettes and the smell of marijuana smoke is in everything the way it used to be when I was growing up. It’s not detectable in your blood whereas marijuana is in your blood apparently for two weeks at least. In California, there’s marijuana dispensaries everywhere. 

We’re passing laws or not passing laws because of presumptions and assumptions about marijuana – some of which have just got to be wrong. Whereas marijuana laws are passed because of certainty about the science of marijuana.

mi amor, porque te vas – dj hatfield

It turned out that the song the faki mentioned was not an uruguayan song after all, but one that had shared meaning in the context of the relationships that formed in port. True to form, he can weave the hook into an evening of ‘amis songs as he plays Am until dawn. Once one sings the hook, more than a few other people will recognize it, this song about a boat leaving uruguay. He sings part of the song as he remembers the lyrics, the words about a boat leaving. Curious about the song, i later discover that the song as he sings it is a parody of an internationally popular song with spanish, french, and english language versions. 

The song was first performed by jeanette, a singer active in spain in the mid-1970s. The song became popular in 1976 because of its appearance in a critically acclaimed film. Because w faki never mentions that the song circulated on the radio or on recordings-odd, because he does talk about listening to vinyl records and consuming music in live music venues in capetown-he is likely only to have heard it performed live in uruguay. The musical form is compelling, but the song circulated among ‘amis musicians in the context of the far ocean fishing trade. Today, it still signals the cosmopolitan outlook of men who took to the boats. 

As the faki plays the song, he tells me about performing at a club in capetown. A sonic trace of his travels, it also indicates the circuits in which ‘amis musicians absorbed latin musics.

Governor Deal: No medical marijuana for AIDS patients

State Rep. Allen Peake’s medical marijuana bill is the talk of this year’s legislative session-well, along with this other little bill that’s gotten a little press. Heck, the Macon Republican’s proposed legislation is literally House Bill 1. We want the cannabis oil to be available for the children. I think law enforcement and district attorneys that have expressed opinions on this believe that if it’s not drafted very, very tightly and can’t be enforced with certainty, it lends itself to a situation where we cannot control it I share those concerns. 

That’s why it is difficult to draft this kind of legislation. The law enforcement and district attorneys that Deal is referring to are the Prosecuting Attorneys Council and the Georgia Sheriffs Association, who have voiced their objections to the longer list of conditions. He pumped his brakes a bit now that the governor has had his say on the list. I’m very confident that the rigorous legislative process will provide a final version of HB 1 that will bring relief from pain and suffering for many Georgia citizens that are hurting, and meets the needed criteria to obtain the signature of Governor Deal. I wholeheartedly share the Governor’s concerns that we not pass a medical cannabis oil bill that could lead to abuse of the medicine, and we will be working with our law enforcement officials to insert safeguards in the legislation that protect against potential abuse.

Medical Marijuana Dispensary Licenses Delayed in Ohio

The Ohio Board of Pharmacy said that it has delayed the announcement of medical marijuana dispensary licenses for the state. The board had expected to make the information available on Wednesday and name as many as 56 licensees in 28 geographic areas. State regulators now expect to award provisional licenses to successful applicants at its monthly meeting scheduled for June 4-6. Cameron McNamee, a spokesman for the board, said in an email that it is taking longer than expected to process the applications. In November of 2015, Ohio voters rejected a ballot proposal that would have legalized cannabis for medical and adult use. 

Only one year later, support for medical marijuana in the state had swelled. Under the law, patients with one or more of 21 serious medical conditions will be allowed to use medical cannabis. The law also bans home cultivation of medical marijuana. The Board of Pharmacy plans for patient registration to begin in July. The Board of Pharmacy’s delay may be an attempt to avoid problems similar to those experienced with the issuance of licenses to cannabis cultivators. 

A spokeswoman for the Board of Commerce, Stephanie Gostomski, said the board approved applications based on data provided. All provisional licenses would be verified before they became permanent.
