Transcript:

Speaker 1: Second Annual MPP arm wrestling fundraiser, but first we have some supporters to thank and a bonus of a slice of the initial rob Kampia interview from way back when, which sets the stage nicely for the competition. This episode is supported by Hoban End. Fiola had a chance to sit down with Bob hope and at the cannabis World Expo. And here's what happened. So, so here's it's Babo, but it's good to see you. Good to see you now. I, as I will tell you, every time, I always want to say whoa bond and that's okay. But Toby Tobin, real simple. How's the, uh, how's The coaching going? Have we have we gotten back to it? The whole goal was to get back to it. Oh yeah. No. Uh, we took the, took the 12 year old traveling team down the hill, as we say in Colorado down to a Denver League and got humbled for a couple of games and then put it back together.

Speaker 1: Made the playoffs as well. All right. And we're currently in the playoffs when the season ended a little while ago. But, uh, we are geared up for fall fall league, right around the corner is an interesting way of saying we lost even when it hurts. So what is happening as far as holding and feel or what's the latest we need to know? We, we've, we've been doing great things and I appreciate you asking. We are now the nation's first national cannabis law firm. Uh, we've been that way in practice for two years and we made our official launch in the early spring this year. How does that work? How were you national? We have 30 lawyers right now in 13 states. Um, so if you retain Hoban and you automatically have a lawyers that meet three qualifications, number one, they're experienced lawyers, lawyers first that have experienced in different commercial areas. Number two, all of those lawyers, uh, adhere to the highest professional standards.

Speaker 1: And number three, they all have experience in the cannabis space, some more than others. That's a rare combination. They're not criminal defense attorneys, they're not activist attorneys. And I don't mean to knock those, that's not the point. My point is that what you are. This is not what we are, the distinction is that we are business attorneys and then personally I've been consulting with a number of governments both around the US and around the world. Uh, and uh, it's terribly exciting to work in this industry in 2016. The terribly is such an interesting word choice. Uh, and I know you choose your words wisely as far as these other international places and governments that you, you know, kind of toned. What, what can you tell us a well, I can tell you that, uh, the, the progression that we're seeing in Latin America, uh, by using cbd or non psychoactive aspects of cannabis, of marijuana as a therapeutic substance that's prescribed and utilized within nationalized care system to Latin America, what's happening very, very rapidly.

Speaker 1: Brazil, a leader in that regard. Um, so that's a pretty interesting development. We're also seeing various countries apply or at least consider the Uruguay model where the government is actually going to produce the cannabis distributed through pharmacies or the like. Then we'll see how that experiment goes. While it was legalized in Uruguay sometime ago, the sales through the pharmacies haven't occurred yet, so that's gonna be the test model. They haven't even reached harvest first. Arvis. It's true and nobody really knows where the planes came from because we represent one of the two master cultivators for the country and no one knows where the plants came from. That's correct. They were given to these, these licensees by the government where they came from, Ms and Mr. who knows? That's interesting. It is terribly interesting. Terribly

Speaker 2: medically correct. Producers of incredibles are focused on quality and consistency because they want you to rely on the product medicinally. They see you as receiving the direct benefit of their medicinal mindset, whether taking incredibles for a qualifying condition. We're doing so recreationally either way medically correct, knows that you're getting therapeutic value from incredibles. The owners, Bob, rick and Josh began medically correct six years ago with a mission of creating quality food with consistent cannabis medicinal value in a product consumers could trust. A couple of years later, partner Derek came in and changed the extraction and delivery method and incredibles was born. Incredibles is currently the largest edibles manufacturer in Colorado and the most award winning cannabis in food product in Colorado, and they're now available in a growing list of locations. If you're looking for high quality, consistent infused cannabis product or extracts, go to. I love incredibles.com.

Speaker 3: See Rob Kampia. Rob, thanks so much for everything that you've done for the industry. And thanks for giving us a few minutes today. You're quite welcome. Alright, so give it to me, the, the story of cofounding, the MPP. How did that happen? Uh, there were three of us who were working on

Speaker 4: the national office of normal in Washington DC and, uh, gave us a lot of good experience with understanding how a public policy works and changes on the national level, but there wasn't a sophisticated a lobby on the federal level for reforming marijuana laws. And so we branched out and inform the marijuana policy project in 1995. And the initial focus was to lobby congress and had a full time presence. So I'm in the halls of Congress. We soon noticed that members of Congress were not only not interested in talking to us, but there are certainly wasn't even going to be, you know, any kind of committee hearings or votes. So, uh, we kind then shifted into working on state level activity and then, uh, as we got more serious about state legislation and then eventually state ballot initiatives, we were able to build our network of funders and supporters and allies and email subscribers and supportive legislators at a more rapid pace.

Speaker 4: We've changed more than half of the state laws since 2000. And so we were quite proud of the accomplishments over the last 15 years in the present. Tell us what we need to know, what is the Rob Kampia 20th anniversary edition message? So I think it's useful to view a marijuana public policy work in kind of three buckets. So there's state bills, state initiatives and um, and congress. So the second bucket is, uh, is, uh, initiatives and that's always the stuff that gets the most attention. But really it's only one bucket. And the ballot initiatives for legalization for November of 2016 will be a Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, California, and Arizona that hits those are the five. And we think we can get. Yeah, we think we could win all five. I mean, if the funding is there, all five will pass. But, um, we noticed that people's eyes are bigger than their bellies.

Speaker 4: And so people say, Oh, I think the California is inevitable. And I think Nevada is inevitable. Massachusetts is liberal. That's inevitable and that's nice for people to say that. But if you don't actually have the money to run any ads in these states, then it's inevitable that these will lose, not pass. So, uh, it just wouldn't be a good point for me to say to donate to the MPP, I guess surely. Surely. Uh, so I mean, are you truly nervous or. I'm, I'm very nervous that people are, um, getting complacent and, uh, and thinking that these initiatives are just going to pass on their own. And that's not the case. I mean, the polling shows that we have a slight advantage in for the states. And in California, there's even a bigger advantage than the, than those states, but, but even so, you can't just run an initiative without running any advertisements.

And in California, there's even a bigger advantage than the, than those states, but, but even so, you can't just run an initiative without running any advertisements.

Speaker 4: I mean, imagine running for Congress and saying, Oh, I'm not going to run any ads to educate the voters. I mean, that would be ridiculous. So, um, so, you know, that's legalization. And then on medical marijuana, uh, you know, it's highly likely that the voters in Florida and Missouri will, uh, have an opportunity to vote to legalize medical marijuana also in November of 2016. And then there's also a possibility of legalization in Michigan. But all the initiatives I just listed, which are a total of eight, all that is November of 2016. And then we'll see what passes and what fails. And then we come up with a strategy for 2018 and 2020. The third of the three buckets is congress, where there's now many marijuana related bills in the house. Uh, there are three good marijuana bills in the Senate and then their Congress has actually voting amendments to spend a very spending bills.

Speaker 4: Um, and these amendments a states rights for medical marijuana, which is the robot refer amendment that actually is law currently, uh, but it has to be renewed every year. The amendment was voted onto DVD to, uh, prohibit the justice department from spending taxpayer money on any kind of interference with marijuana laws including legalization that fail, but barely a. Then there was amendments on a allowing a veteran's affairs physicians to recommend medical marijuana to, that's an amendment to fix the banking problem that the cannabis industry faces in an amendment to fix the tax, to add problem that the industry faces. So there's five, a couple of other more ancillary amendments. These are coming up for votes on the House floor and in a Senate committee and each of these amendments x, except for one, they're all good. And then there's a bad one which is currently prohibiting the District of Columbia from legalizing marijuana on the local level.

Speaker 4: That's the only bad marijuana amendment right. All the other stuff is good. So there's not really a lot of energy and congress to pass bad stuff. It's just a question of do members of Congress care enough about reform to pass good stuff, but that's completely the opposite of the way it used to be. Right. In the olden days it was all bad and nothing good. Right? So we're in a good place, but, uh, this is no time to get complacent. Is that basically what I'm hearing? Yeah, that's correct. Uh, you know, uh, you know, marijuana can't legalize itself.

Speaker 6: Second annual cannabis celebrity arm wrestling match to benefit the marijuana policy project.

Speaker 5: I love it. This is Lindsey Robinson. Hello. You are the, uh, you, you, you're, what's behind this? You're the heft behind the, you know,

Speaker 6: I'm one of the driving forces for sure. I am currently the director of development at the marijuana policy project, so I like to find creative ways for us to raise money and after a lot of trash talking by our executive director a couple years ago, we held the first, uh, arm wrestling event in Denver right around 4:20. And it was ridiculous. He was humiliated by you. And this is key. Yes. So Rob Kampia, who's the executive director and my boss was humiliated by the wonderful and talented Jamie and on both arms actually the right and the left and it was a really awesome defeat. And there's so few times where you get to humiliate your boss and some of your friends and donors and raise a lot of money for your organization. Absolutely. So super proud to have all these really great folks here. And uh, it's gonna be a really good time.

Speaker 6: So you set up the, uh, the whole bracket, right? You've matched up each, each person with another person. I have. And then now we know who goes from which, you know, from which wind to the next win. And yeah, it is. I'm not rigged. It isn't rigged. Dot Dot dot. No, it's, it's gonna be a real. I tried to make the matches as exciting as possible. Some of them clearly favor one individual over the other, but I'm really just a desk for a good time. What are some of your favorite matchups? Let's go through that. Um, well, one of, one of my favorite bass matchups is um, uh, Troy Dayton and, and Ryan Hurley. I think that one's actually going to be a pretty significant, a match and I'm not sure who's gonna win that one. One that I would put some money on is Danny Dean of harvest side, a whipping the shit out of Aaron Smith of NCIA.

Speaker 6: That one's gonna be Yup. Versus Aaron Smith. I love, I cannot wait for that. Yeah, I'm putting my money on Danny, although don't tell anyone I said that. And then certainly rob Kampia is going to be a participating again this year and he is arm wrestling. Emily Richardson and I got my money on emily actually Richardson from. Yeah, she works with a CW analytic. Oh, there you go. Yep. I think she's a wonder woman if she says yes. Yes. So some of our folks are dressed up in costume. We're definitely encouraging folks to just be festive and have a good time with it and it's gonna get weird and that's exactly what we want. It is. It is already. Fair enough. As far as the wind's going onto the next bracket, h how, how specific is this? In other words, have we put rob on one side and Jamie on the other hoping for the finale to be exactly what it was last year.

Speaker 6: Well, the finale, um, I won't say, but uh, I do. I do think another matchup between the two of them will occur today. I can't, I can't say for sure, but I think it probably will. Yeah. That's fantastic. All right, so we've got a. we've got our players set. Yep. Now when folks are listening to this, Bill wants to donate to MPP. Excellent. Well we would love for them to do that. We have a lot of really exciting work going on this year. It's the biggest year in policy reform history. A MPP is actively supporting, um, five legalization adult use initiatives across the country in Maine, Massachusetts, Arizona, Nevada and California. And then we're also supporting efforts to pass medical and a number of states as well. So if folks are interested, they can log onto MPP.org. There's tons of different ways they can donate to the foundation. They can donate to our five onc for lobbying arm or they can donate directly to one of those

Speaker 5: campaigns if they prefer. Perfect. Excellent. You've got all that information right there. And P.org. Yup. Yup. Excellent. Lindsay, I know you're busy. Thank you so much. This is, of course, this is already exciting. Yeah, it's a really great, super excited. Alright, thanks everyone. Alright, so here's troy Dayton famed a performers or, or cooke contestants. What, what do you, what are you calling yourself? Do you think? I am a force of nature. Troy Dayton going up against. Who? Do you know who you're competing against? Ryan Hurley. I see rose law group and uh, it sounds like you think he's going down. Well, you know, he's a lot bigger than me physically. Very much, much larger than me. Um, and uh, you know, but stranger things have happened last year. I defeated trip Heber and I was, I was definitely. Did Not have the odds to win that one. No, I, I, uh, I know trip most people do.

Speaker 5: And this is also someone that's physically larger than you. That's fair to say. Yes. Yes. And you're saying you won? I won and would trip. Do you think that's why he's not here? He said he, he lost. He was embarrassed. He wouldn't come back again. I get it. I, I understand. We'll have to give them a chance to defend himself at another time, I guess. Yeah. Who, who are you excited to see a compete here today? The have the names and faces that you already see emily pack man. And she really brings the heat. She does. Uh, so, you know, I think, I think that's going to be an interesting match up. Um, and um, you know, um, you know, Jamie Lewis and Rob Kampia and making sure that everybody wants that to happen again. Yeah, yeah. We'll see. We'll see if it happens. We'll see if it had reflux over in intrigue, if, if not discussed.

Speaker 5: Uh, so first day of a arcview in a, in Oakland, I, uh, I walked in for at least a little bit of it. What were you excited about today? Man? I'm super excited about the Gobble Rob Van dam. Got Up there and uh, and, and helped us raise over $150,000 for the ballot initiatives in November. That's awesome. And um, advanced nutrients made $100,000 pledge. That's awesome. And then we also had the most engagement. It wasn't that everybody was giving a lot but, but, but, but so many people gave a thousand 502,000 more so than we've ever had and that felt really good. A lot of the new members were raising their hands and so getting in that habit of supporting the cause it felt really good to me. Awesome. Yeah. Big 100,000 dollars donation. But what I love that you do is you said raise your hand. You literally just point out and say, all right, who's up? Who's, who's donating? Yeah. W, when did you come up with that kind of philosophy of, you know, just kind of saying let's actually put up or shut up right now because it's almost a, it

Speaker 1: really showcases the fact that we are doing this right now. Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, you know, I mean the whole reason we started our view was so that we could help fund the movement. Right, right, right. I mean, you know, if you could convince rich people to get involved in, on the business side, then then once you're there, there you could really help them realize how the important, the, the movement was their business. Right. That's the end, the change that we're making and the people we're helping and everything else. So show them the activism side through the business. Exactly. And by showing them that their peers are doing it really helps to help make it a, an extra hospitable industry for those who are donating. And um, I'd like to think on some level a slightly inhospitable industry for those who aren't. That's well put.

Speaker 1: Actually. It's, it's, it's only in hospital if you don't participate in type of thing. Yep. Yep. Exactly. Exactly. Alright, day to uh, anything that uh, you know, we should report. This will go up after obviously tomorrow we've got a public kite who is the co founder Co, a co creator of Gmail. He developed the like button. Oh, okay. He, I'm a partner at y combinator, big supporter of marijuana policy. He's going to be speaking to our group tomorrow. That's going to be really exciting and we are going to have another, another big announcement that I can't say yet, but it will come out tomorrow about a big funding event, uh, in the, uh, in the cannabis industry that'll, that will, uh, that, you know, in, in certain circles. We'll, we'll, we'll have a shock waves for sure. Excellent. I will be there and I'm looking forward to it. Well, I hope you're here for my arm wrestling match with Ryan Hurley. It appears that he has not shown up yet. Ryan Hurley from the Rose Group, and I'll tell you what every rose has. It's thorn and it might just be me today. It might just be Troy Dayton. Thank you so much.

Speaker 7: This is true. This was like, I have a really good radio voice. You have been told this. Yeah, no, it's true. It's really good opinion. Can hear that right now. Hello. Hello. It's mountain medicine, truly one of a, one of the key celebrities to the MPP arm wrestling tournament. The second annual, I feel like the reason there's a second annual is because of the first annual. Yes, I agree. And key celebrity or Kesha talker really is how we've got this whole thing going and it started with me challenging rob early on because he claimed he had 40 arm wrestling wins under his belt. All women, all women and Calvin and he wouldn't arm wrestle me unless we turned it into a fundraiser, which is brilliant if you think about it. So brilliant. So brilliant. So, so brilliant. And then a truth to the rumors. That was you beat.

Speaker 7: I'm right handed and left handed. Does that true? Oh, those aren't rumors. That's, that's true. Those are facts. That is that there's a video actually noticing that we have video. I brought the camera man to make sure that we would record it this time. Yeah. I'm hoping it'll air. It'll air a lot. So when, when, uh, but you're not going up against him initially, right? My goal is to get to him. I understand. Do you know who you're performing with? Chris? Chris Krane Grin. That's pretty good. I feel. I feel bad for him actually. Well, yeah. I mean, here's the thing. As a good guy, I know he's such a little sweet pea and I'm going to have to crush these little arm. I feel really bad about that right now. I'm really for Chris. Later on. I'll help you with those. Medical bills. Will get you through that little spring.

Speaker 7: I hope he gets out early and doesn't really try to show too much. Right. So that the arm. Yeah, I see what you're saying. Crm and a little bit of pride in the whole thing because it's going to be a bit of a much. If he keeps trying and I just have to keep going for it. What is the latest, now that we have you, uh, any news from a what have you from Massachusetts? I'm saying really? Oh, there's a little bit of news. Did you know? Have you heard? I don't know. What do I know? Well, I, I officially have received a letter of approval for Mayflower medicinals in Massachusetts. Your Damn hands from the city council as a whole. Yes. Congratulations. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. This is good. Second time around the, uh, the little billy goat. Got It. Finally, watch out world.

Speaker 7: I'm really excited. I'm really excited for the patients. So I'm really excited for the opportunity. I mean, I'm a huge fan of Boston as a whole. Give us a timeline when you know, oh, in marijuana years there is no timeline, right? You just go with the roll with the punches as they come. Um, you know, right now we're in the process of that. Even though we got the letter, we still have to get through the state process. It's not over yet. I mean there's many hurdles to go through, but I've got an amazing team out there and doing it the second time around. I've learned a lot. It really is about the team and the team work. So we've got a letter though. It's pretty exciting. It's exciting. Excellent. And congratulations. Any, any other, uh, any final words of intimidation for the group here? Just get out of my fucking way. Let's just make it easy. It was in medicine and mayflower. Thank you very much. And,

Speaker 5: and here he is. Here's Rob Kampia. Here is one of the main reasons, if not the main reason that we're all here. Second annual. Can you believe it when you say that I'm the reason that you all are here, you're making it sound like I'm your father. I'm sure in some other policy, if you will, but, um, you know, when Jamie, Jamie just talked about the fact that, you know, she challenged you and you accepted the challenge if it was a fundraiser, which is very, you know, cannabis activist have you, you know, so, uh, yeah, I'm basically sort of like a, a drunken televangelists kind of a persona in this movement. But yeah, I'll do anything for a buck, right? Sure. Of course. Including the potential of being humiliated. Now, you know, there's some memories, some group memory of me losing the Jamie last year, but who don't really have a memory well, who could really remember so long ago.

Speaker 5: Uh, so, uh, you know, it's kind of a clean slate. Sure. Yeah, exactly. Today is tomorrow, you know, and uh, and it might as well be yesterday is your points, right? While I was ozzy would say, uh, yeah. To to today is tomorrow was today or yesterday or something. Today was tomorrow. Yesterday. That's what, that's, that's, that's exactly. All right. So, and, uh, a restaurant piece. Randy Rhoads, right? Uh, yeah. So, uh, let's just talk shop for a minute. Here we are barreling our way to November as well as everything else. A Ohio's governor, John Casick. You remember him as a presidential candidate? He just signed something fun into law for Ohioans. Uh, where are we right now? What do we need to be paying attention to? That's the kick. So with what's happening over the next 20 weeks before Election Day, November eighth is a, we'll have five legalization questions on the ballot.

Speaker 5: California, Arizona, Nevada, Massachusetts, Maine. Medical marijuana will be, is already qualified in Florida. There's a 99 percent chance that it has qualified in Missouri. Ninety nine percent. Yeah, there's always potential for government malfeasance, that kind of stuff. But, uh, Missouri, she's kind of just assume that that'll be okay. And then Arkansas is of course the question mark because there will be at least one question on the ballot. I can guarantee you that the problem is that there could be two medical marijuana questions on the same ballot and if that happens in Arkansas will certainly fail. Right? Yeah. And so five legalization, three medical marijuana, and then Montana would probably have a medical marijuana improvement initiative. And so people don't really talk about Montana because it's, you know, it's an important improvement that's being proposed, but it's already a medical marijuana state. So usually people just skip over that.

Speaker 5: It is. And it's also a sleepy medical marijuana state, if that's fair. That's right. Yeah. So where are you concerned? Right. We, when we talked last, you were kinda looking at Nevada now we all are. What, where else are you concerned? Uh, I'm most concerned about Arizona and Nevada. Arizona. Arkansas is going to lose you just feel that. Yeah. If, uh, if that situation unfolds the way I think a. well, Missouri looks great for a. When California looks great for her in Florida, it's too tough to tell because that's advertising money. You could go in either direction there, right? And then Maine, you could buy your way into victory, which we will. Okay, and then Massachusetts, the polling is pretty good and I think we will be able to, in fact, we're broke right now in Massachusetts. I actually did take, will ultimately raise the money that we need and people step up MPP.org.

Speaker 5: By the way, if you listening want to go ahead and affect change. So Nevada, you know, has the Sheldon Adelson, uh, issue. Uh, we know about that. Why are you concerned in Arizona? Arizona has a problem which is prosecutors, prosecutors, there I've been agitating a and they actually, they opposed our initiative before we even had finished drafting our initiative which shows how, what bad faith they act in a and so that prosecutors have been active in their campaigning, like they're running a real campaign and then also the governor is opposed and I just told that he's a per perhaps a trying to twist some arms behind the scene for fundraising. Okay. So it's a rumor that I think is probably true. And then, you know, you have a, uh, Randy Kendrick who has already donated to the opposition committee, right? And she's rich. So, uh, there is, uh, the possibility that Arizona will Haba well-funded opposition campaign.

Speaker 5: Yeah. And the polling in Arizona is the most risky of all of them in the first place. Yeah, there was running even last time I checked a, is there an update to that? I think the most accurate polling and Arizona is 50 percent in favor, 43 percent opposed and seven percent undecided. So if he, I believe that those numbers are approximately true. I'd say the polling is between 50 and 52 in Arizona. So therefore, uh, we actually have to run a muscular ad buy in order to survive and the bad guys could in fact if he does with advertising and not running a campaign except for just a big checkbook and uh, and uh, you know, a director in our TV, a director, producer. So, uh, we are very focused on, on Nevada and Arizona because those states are up for grabs and it's for our movement.

Speaker 5: It's choose to grab those dates, but we actually have to try. Yeah. So Nevada, Arizona were, were broken. Massachusetts cracked, broken Massachusetts, uh, uh, Arkansas if you'd like. And and Florida too. Those are basically where you would like resources to go if you had your druthers. If I had my druthers, I'd say don't donate to Arkansas. Okay. Just, just, just, just, just donate to Arizona, Massachusetts and Nevada. Done. That's what we'll do. Rob Kampia the best of luck to you on what I'm sure will be a win. How about that? Thank you. And I mean in arm wrestling. Wrestling is way more important. Exactly. Okay. And so here's Danny. All right? So, um, you know, Danny, you, everyone's got to know Dan again. I would imagine, right? First mistake, everybody wants you to be Danny Green. You work hand in hand with Steve de Angelo. And is that a way to say it? Right and left hand. Okay. Both hand in hand in both of those are yours. There we go. And so you are competing today here. Oh my goodness. Who Do you know who you're going up against? Aaron Smith. This was mentioned. And this is,

Speaker 6: I'm very excited about this now. Do you have any prognostication as far as the battle? We know everyone's saying that I'm going to win, but I don't know actually, but I feel like I'm going. So you're, you're confident, confident you do have the backing of the folks didn't have to talk to Aaron so that he knows that, but it's, I mean when it comes to, it makes kind of sense that, you know, people would be behind you, you know what I mean? You're very lovable. For instance, let's talk about the fact that your hair matches, uh, so you have basically kind of like, it's an ancillary hair comb, which is also an ancillary hair color or ancillary color to your car and you match the door. Take us through the car situation. And so I had the 2016 Subaru wrx sti. And because the car is so masculine, I have a little pink flares that my mud flaps are pink.

Speaker 6: And then my short, my shit short shifter and my shifting. So everything pretty girly inside. And so my hair matches it. Everything's curly inside. It's a five speed, six speed. It's a six speed. And I'm about to go ethanol. Are you straight pipes? My cars are really loud. I love it. That's fantastic. When can we expect that change? Alright, I'm just waiting for the boyfriend and put them on these. That's where he comes in handy. Yeah. That's what he does for a living. Quite literally. Oh, he does? Oh my goodness. I'm into race cars, so it really does. When every time I traveled with Steve, I come back and my car cleaned. There's car parts on an oil change. I'm like, yes. The life stage mechanic. It really is. That's fantastic. I'm sure he thinks the same way though about dating someone in the cannabis industry. Danny game. Thank you so much. Thank you. Best of luck in your battle. Oh yeah. So I'm going to beat some ass today.

Speaker 6: So you say it's a. it's a whole new level of busy that you've never been in before. Here's nate Bradley. How you doing from the CCI? A word on the street? What are you busy doing just in case folks don't know? Well, there's so much going on right now. The Art Association is fully wrapped in not only like last year when we were. We were fully involved in the legislative process. Bill passed, now the bills have been passed, so we have a state system in place. Not only are we tracking brand new legislation, which is to to work on last year included last year's, but new bills, so we have like new types of new types of players to come to the game. He saw the tribes come to the game this year. We saw alcohol come of the game the end of last year and so a lot of people that were having to track a lot more on top of that. We have three agencies writing rules and regulations, so phenomenal. And I could meet with all those people now on a regular basis to ensure that I have my required amount of, you know, lunches and dinners with the regulators to make sure. So that is a whole bunch of new more meetings. Right. Then we have an initiative. Well yeah,

Speaker 5: that initiative is also a lot of time. And so even though it's not my initiative, we're still neck deep in the initiative process, trying to make it, you know, the best initial possible. So take us through some Murcia mmrs did give us a sense of where you are then and then we'll go into Alma and the rest. All right, I'm finished. Okay. Oh no, that's okay. Okay. Um, well, basically the MMRF say, I mean before the MRI it was a gray area. It was pretty much, you know, imagine a rule where you can show up and basically measure world where you could show up and basically say I'm a collector. But what does the collective. Well, I don't know, there's no state rules around it. So if you take the word collective and replace that word with Mcdonald's and just say anybody can call themselves in Mcdonald's.

Speaker 5: And there was no rules and regulations attached to that. Mcdonald's, not only one, every restaurant in the world called himself the McDonald's, but banks would call themselves Mcdonald's. There's just no rules and regulations attached to it. And that's the brain Arabic. So we took one paragraph of the gray area and replaced it with 88 pages of rules. Here we go. So it's a whole different world now. Alma, Alma built on what was done last year. It loosens it up. Last year's legislation, it was a little bit more prescriptive than we would've liked it to have been a. We have a lot of stakeholders to deal with, so this year what we're doing is we're with the online is that actually loosens up and creates that structure, but a lot of the restrictions on who can own what types of licenses. It's an, it's more of an open market when the.

Speaker 5: It was very restrictive as to what type of license. Hey Uma, it's open world. If you want to create a manufacturing license, having cultivation site, that's your option. How are you feeling about November? I feel good. I mean, I mean I want to jinx myself. Somebody who worked on it six years ago, you know, I got a little too excited so I'm not letting you know, that was a two month hangover I had, you know, so I'm, I'm being a little cautious this time, but I feel very good about the team behind it. It just phenomenal. Excellent. Excellent. Who you've ever. Who were you battling today? Battling today? I get along with everybody as those who can't see them smiling or get along with everybody. Nate Bradley. Thank you so much.

Speaker 5: Excellent. All right, so things are. Things are starting to get going as far as the actual arm wrestling. Andrew de Angelo. How the hell are you? Hey Seth, good to. Good to be with you as always. Absolutely power things that uh, at harborside, well never a dull day at harbor side, but um, things are fantastic. We just beat the federal government on the forfeiture case finger now. Take us through it. If we don't know. Okay. Four years ago, almost to the day the federal government hit us with to forfeit forfeiture reactions on both of our locations. And then the fight began with the feds and at that time most people who received those actions from the peds shut their doors and ran away and opened up someplace else and sort played a game of hopscotch. But this is a di Angelo brother organization. So we said, you know, effort after you were going to fight, you're not going to take away this facility from our patients are not going to take away this medicine from our patients and we will never give up and we will fight to the bitter end to the death. And we did a whole bunch of fighting for years, too many details to give you right now, but the end of the day, largely

Speaker 8: personally, Rebecca Farr amendment, which I'm sure all your listeners know, we were able to get the case dismissed. And for those of you who don't know to go back to the farm and that is largely the work of Steve and Henry and our political henry, why cows can eat the lion roars like a line in the court. Oh Wow. They're taller than I expected. They're going, they're going to women who are starting and everyone knows that women are vicious fighters. And uh, you know, that women are smarter out. The women are smarter. That's right. For women are smart of course. And you know, we actually have more women in management at harbor side than we do. Man, we haven't even considered considering who's the winner there. Nate. Nate want emily packs the first winter. The afternoon. Excellent. It's not the only a action that you had though, right? The forfeiture case and wasn't there another. Oh yeah. We just came out of court with the irs,

Speaker 5: another branch of the federal government who's been coming after us on the [inaudible] hello to 80 and I'm sure your listeners know all about the evils of to 80. What then, what could you possibly have been doing all by yourself there with two 80? What was that? What was that case? Well, like many of you out there who are in the industry and have dispensary's and other businesses, the federal government is coming after you for two 80 and you get this little note from the irs that says we're going to audit you. And then they apply to 80, he to your tax return and then they give you this gigantic tax bill that is, you know, millions and millions of dollars in the case of harborside. Um, and is prohibitively expensive in the case of everybody. Yeah. Um, and then once again, the Angela brother kicked in and we said, no, nope. Fsu, that's not gonna happen bringing the lion.

Speaker 8: Exactly. Henry and my brother Steve took that fight into court. Just, just real quick, just slash Troy Dayton just took off his shirt. Oh, he took his shirt off. Did he? When he's, he just prepping the fight. Just prepping. Good. God, God, maybe he'll take his

Speaker 5: pants off if he wins at the end of the day, the two 80 case, what happened here? Why don't we just argued it and there's a process. There's some more briefs that both sides have to file and then you get a rebuttal brief and then eventually the judge issues a ruling probably sometimes next next year. So we're in there fighting in the fight, man. We're in the fight. We've landed some blurred. Of course the lion and Steve were very confident that we destroyed them in the courtroom as those guys are never short of competence. That's it. That's what you have to have. Well, yeah. Without that, it's hard to wake up in the morning and fight something that's strong and as large as the federal government in the United States, you guys are also on a, uh, a little bit of a spree as far as expansion. He's slightly, at least in California, we've got a third location opening up in San Leandro.

Speaker 5: We just got the license, it wasn't just a few months ago now and we're in the, what they called a the cup process, which is a conditional use permit. Excuse me. And um, that basically makes, gets all your permits and make sure your fire ready code ready to business in San Leandro. So that's where we are right now. We expect to open October first. The Mike puts back in November first and we're real excited. We're doing, that's part of the ship we're doing with our card nursery actually. Great. So that's going to be, you know, clone central well in all of California. So, uh, once harborside San Leandro opens, make sure all of you growers and breeders out there come on in and get some dark hard form. That's it. Andrew Dangelo. Thank you so much for your time. Congratulations on the. On the nudges and the winds. Yeah, man. And keep fighting. That feels really good. Thanks Seth. There we go.

Speaker 5: So I mean everybody was very excited. Troy Dayton didn't have a shirt on it. That is one way to get the crowd excited. Is Troy Dayton and pastries? Yes. John John Downs of new digs. The new digs are what are the new digs, infusion factory, private label white label manufacturing for cannabis infused products here in California. We're located in the East Bay and looking forward to helping a lot of entrepreneurs bring their product to market. Now. You know, we'll talk more about that I think with, uh, with your partner and CEO of infusion factory was talking next next couple of days. Right? That sounds like now John, for those who know you, you're not a tiny guy. I can't help but notice you. You're not competing. So there's actually rules against professionals competing in amateur events, what it is and it's good to give others a chance think to participate in the express their athletic prowess, if you will.

Speaker 5: Yeah. And uh, and so, you know, like the crowd loves the competition, it wouldn't be much of a competition where if you were. So this is what I love about this event. What I'm finding out is that their shit talking no matter if you're in or out, you know, even if you're not competing, you still need to. Oh absolutely. It flows freely. One hundred percent, 100 percent. So everybody's here in Oakland. What are you excited about this week? Anything in particular? You know, more than anything is just the entire national industry convergence on what I think is the center of the industry here in California. So it's just a, a lot of fun during the day and during the evening time hours. So I'm excited for all of it. If I've, if I've seen a video of you, it's a, what? Do you remember the line specifically? I think it's a, my advice is for closers that that's one piece, but my advice is get out there and party. Get out there and party. That's right. Hey, you, you know, you'd be surprised how much business during the day is set up at the parties at night, so, uh, you gotta be able to burn that candle on both ends, burning that joint on both ends. Either one, whatever you have, whatever you have, you have been smoking,

Speaker 6: welcome God, or something like that. Things are getting crazy here to Danny when by the way, not sure. Oh, okay. Yeah. So Sabrina fender, right when, when she's not out to affecting policy, she's in here arm wrestling or at least that's what you're just finding out indeed. Well, just finding out, but it's always affecting policy and this is for the cause, right? Absolutely. It's a fundraiser,

Speaker 5: MPP.org by the way. Go there. And then a, choose your own adventure of where you want the funds to.

Speaker 6: What's the latest with you? How you doing? Oh, doing great. You know, keeping busy, doing all kinds of projects going on California and what do we need to know about what's happening as you're talking to when you're talking about. There's a lot going on right now. Wrestling. Oh, it's. This is nate Bradley. Rolling down a blazer. I'm so not ready for this. You have your own entrance song. I don't have a song. I. what's going on? Well, this is. I think that you should go. You should do when doves cry. What I'm saying? Like just flip it. You know what I mean? I think that's great. Who do I talk to you about that I don't? Someone. I think it's Lindsay. I wish I had the music back here, but any, uh, information that you want to share about that and the new that I know I'm putting you on the Berkeley is going through an interesting transformation at this time.

Speaker 6: As some of you may be aware, they just announced sue Taylor won the fourth dispensary permit, which is fantastic. Everybody loves sue. She's the mother to marijuana. Absolutely deserves it as a great representative for the industry and for the movement. So you just a place that moniker mother theresa of marijuana. Does anybody else know? I wish I could claim that I should claim it. It's not mine though. That's what people do. Just claim it, but she, that's her. That's. I'm spreading the word. That's who she is, so she just won the Ford license and uh, what about the redistricting and all that? Well, so she won the forest license and then the city council also decided to add an additional two licenses.

Speaker 6: Interesting. Which they're allowed to do. It's entirely in their rights. So that went before the planning commission and the Planning Commission that had an interesting debate about that, past that. And it's sent back to the city council. The city council is actually going to hear that if the last item on their agenda at the next city council meeting in the last possible that they won't get past this burlog. So we'll see. I mean it's going to happen and you know, let the economy doing it. Well like capitalism do. You don't even know who your arm wrestling. I do actually. Amber Langston, my roommate right now. Well listen, best of luck to you. I'm on your side. You know, that's just, you know, I have to say, I have to say funny side story. I have an incredibly busted recovering risks. I play on our BPG softball team jays purely injured.

Speaker 6: How like over a month ago, so I was playing second base and I swear to God the ball curves, so second base, you're like right behind the pitcher and so the guy hit the ball. He's supposed to be the lowest tier of good, like softball. So we're supposed to be like the super super amtrust. This team was like, bro are like brief row and so this guy hit the ball and I was going for it and I swear to God my wrist right between my thumb and my role. Were you an athlete? Did you play softball? I was an athlete but I did not play softball and just devastated me and my right hand thumb movements. So any texting, any typing and you don't realize how much you use your thumb until it goes monkeys. Opposable thumbs and that is. And I realized this was extremely debilitating for the last six weeks and I'm finally here and now I'm like, they want me to arm wrestle because I'm like, this is going to set me back a week back into the Penguin Tuxedo. I've been worrying or wristbands the first week. I haven't worn a wristband, so I talked to amber and she agreed that maybe we can do electronic. Interesting. Well, best of luck.

Speaker 6: Incredible. I can't believe we just saw. Yeah. So

Speaker 9: this is an upset to say the least. I know Chris. He's a sleeper. I mean, you know, Nice Guy, but he brings in and, and you know, Jeannie incredible inner strength to brought her a game. But I just went down in a shocker. Shocker. I, there was a tear in my eye and I got to Saint Patrick. Ray, how you doing? I'm good. How are you? How's the house? Canopy? Canopy is a very well um, we are very busy but it's actually slowing down. We just wrapped up our third class, a 16 week program. So I'm looking forward to Lowell rnr. Indeed. Yeah. You just had a what? Uh, we just had nine companies present at the arcview group. Oakland's investor forum. Oh, nine of our 10. Oh boy. Yeah. And, and the one that didn't pitched in Portland, Portland and won the pitch competition. I see. So we're number is fine.

Speaker 9: How about the rest of the night? Not the rest of the nine are doing really well. They are actively fundraising and doing their thing. Okay. What, uh, you know, obviously you love all 10. Uh, what would you, uh, which ones would you bring to the floor as far as at least a quick conversation, but we'll off the top of your head. You know, it's tough. It's tough. It's like choosing favorites of your children. But um, uh, you know, one of the companies close to my heart is spark labs founded by Lamoreaux, very well known person in the industry, Allen Cain and Chelsea Joseph, and they are bringing a consumer reports model two products in the cannabis industry. So testing and independently verifying which is the best vaporizer, you know, what are the best lights of watching here? Amanda Reiman, rock it out and fly the, a heaven natal and flag.

Speaker 9: Just killing him. Lose loses face from, from Berkeley patients group. And He seems to be taking all right to it. It's got a good liaison, which is interesting. He's, he's looking good. I liked the cowboy boots, the, a juice short, short shorts and short. That's true. They got pretty far up the thigh, that seven, eight inches a thigh there, which I think is, uh, perhaps, uh, I'm not. I know, I know the bay area is a very liberal with their clothing policy policy policy, which is a good thing. And we're excited to get out here, uh, this fall and run our class of canopy San Francisco starting in August. Oh Wow. Okay. Yeah, yeah. So I'm trying to bring a, you know, come to one of the most exciting markets in the cannabis industry right now. Without question. I mean with the, uh, the election coming up here in November, it's going to be awesome. Just going to ask you how you feel. I, I, you know, I'm really excited. I want to be a, I think we all want to be, you know, front row whenever California legalizes it's a big trump supporter if I'm not mistaken. Oh yeah, yeah.

Speaker 5: How'd you know, comb over. He's my idol now. Obviously not your great. Thank you so much. This is awesome. Thank you. It looks like Rob Kampia is getting ready to go. We got Aaron Smith. How are you, man?

Speaker 10: Doing Great, I, uh, feeling quite triumphant over getting the formidable, formidable Danny Gene, uh, in the first year browns and uh, looking forward to the second. So you did beat Danny handling? Yes. Yes. Uh, she was a, took a little effort, you know, but I, I put my all into it and really committed and focused and have, have been training for this for the last eight months. The you versus Danny. That was a highlight match. A surprise highlight. Match, you know, she's, like I said, she is the baddest broads in the weed business.

Speaker 5: Without question, we've got many buy the white bed.

Speaker 10: I think I see Emily Richardson up there right now. Going on versus wrong. Gabby. That's exactly right. What, uh, who, who was impressed you most as far as the arm wrestling prowess today? So far? Uh, my money's on emily. Okay. All right. That's fair. That's fair. You know, we can, uh, we'll let, let's talk a little shop. Uh, I couldn't help but notice that, um, you're running an event this week. Yeah. There's a little gig that we got going on down the street over there to Marriott. And, uh, going to be our biggest investment.

Speaker 5: Yeah. Record setting. I saw that. That's right. How many people, how many times

Speaker 10: look at well over 100 exhibits and well over 3000 attendees. So amazing. How good do you feel? I feel great. You know, it's good to see that the industry coming together to, to not only, you know, to support the political work that Ncia and groups like, like Mpp here doing, but also to share, to share their experiences and best practices with one another and to really, uh, to also help guide, uh, all the newcomers in the industry who, you know, I, I, I bet when I show up tomorrow they'll probably be 80 percent of the folks I've never even met. And that's great. And it sets. Yeah, it's great. Good News. It's great for us to have that opportunity to, to, to help share the values and the wisdom of the, uh, you know, the, the veterans in the industry with the newcomers. So whether you're a veteran or a newcomer, big news out of, uh, out of the subcommittee, I would imagine.

Speaker 10: Yeah. Tell us, tell us about the, uh, well the Senator Committee last week voted to essentially defund any, any enforcement action against banks that do business with the industry and that the vote is expected to be taken up on the full House floor this week, hopefully later this week. And uh, and I think we have a good chance at seeing this past and you know, it's still still just one step in the process to get banking access for the industry. But it will, it will be a huge step forward. It's a real positive stamp. You're saying that there will be a vote already. That's fantastic. How are you feeling about that houseboat floor vote? I'm feeling really good about it, but I also know that, you know, it's really important to constituents out there in there in the states called their member of Congress and ask them to support a marijuana businesses access to banking.

Speaker 10: And soon you will see an action page on the NCIA, the cannabis industry.org website directing folks how to do that because members of Congress now have to listen to their constituents. And, uh, and I think we can actually get this over the top. Yeah, no, absolutely. One more time on what they should say to the congressman when they call Congressperson, excuse me, uh, ask them to support the congressmen perlmutter's marijuana business access to banking act as well as the appropriations amendments coming up, uh, in the financial services. I'm a budget bill this week. Excellent announcement. Are you excited for your next match? Do you know who it is? I don't. I don't, I don't. I don't know. Uh, I think, I think those guys are probably going to pick me up against somebody like nate Bradley or one of these heavyweight. So we'll, we'll, we'll, we'll see how I. Fair.

Speaker 11: Okay. Can you hear me? I can hear you. So this is Chris Crane. Hello. Huge, huge upset over over Jamie Lewis. Tell us all about this. They said it couldn't be done. They said Jamie Lewis couldn't go down after she took out campaign last year. They said it couldn't be done. I did it. You did do or down. What was the key do you think? To the victory? You know, I think she, I think she gave it up when she, when she decided to fight me lefthanded. Uh Huh. She thought she had an advantage on me, but she did not have been practicing lefty because I was expecting some mind tricks. You knew. I knew. I knew I had it all up here. See Chris Crane does the research, you know what I'm saying? But he does the work that needs to be done. If you're not going to do it right, don't do it at all.

Speaker 11: What John Lewis. I'm coming for you show you want him next is what it is. Either I want them or not. I got them next. So it's already set. I, if they follow the order of the brackets there, then I'm then up again, but I'll take anybody except maybe except Nate Bradley I think. I think, uh, I'm pretty scared of him. Yeah, no, no. I mean he also a while, uh, kind of troy took off the shirt. Nate was kind of rude. The Jack. Yeah. He's, he's, he's, he's an intimidating guy. Indeed. Intimidating force. I'm genuinely scared. So, uh, so best of luck in the next round will, what's the latest with forefront and what you're focused on? Actually, no. How's the house? I know you were doing some and things. I was doing some painting and some landscaping and yeah, a house. The House is coming along really nice.

Speaker 11: Uh, we should have it rented out in a couple of days. So you put the kids to work, right? Some child labor, they know, they hold, they hold pebbles, they hold rocks. We desert scape the front lawn. So kids were hauling rocks and they were cleaning and painting. They were, they were super helpful. Kind of loving it. Tell you. It was great. That was excellent. I think we took out, we think we took care of a phone call while I was doing it. So that's it. That's a good week. So, well, what is the latest with forefront what? You know, how are we doing as we make our way into the second half here? We're doing well. You know, we're, we're, we're, we're pretty laser focused on our, on our priorities, a lot of stuff going on in the eastern states, in the Midwest, gearing up for Pennsylvania and Ohio and all the markets to come next year.

Speaker 11: Should we do well in November. So, uh, you know, plugging along, chugging along, tell us about Massachusetts that, you know, you're, you're overseeing that unofficially the initiative. I am not overseeing message. I realized I tried to walk it back but I didn't walk it back enough, you know. But you're in Massachusetts. I am and involved. Yes. Um, you know, we've got some, we've got, we've got tougher opposition than I than I would have liked. Um, but I think that's the game now, you know, the, we're not going to sneak up on anyone anymore. So unfortunately governor Baker and a Boston Mayor, Marty Walsh are, you know, there may be some somebody pretty seriously campaigning against it and they might be raising some money for the opposition. So we got to come ready to, you know, we've got to come ready to really play and I don't think Massachusetts is a slam dunk that, that, you know, that a lot of people might think being such a heavily blue state and as you know, this is the MPP fundraiser addition.

Speaker 11: So we'll say MPP.org. Again, Rob Kampia did mention that he's broken the MPPS broke in Massachusetts. So we need to push funds that way. So we do, we do it. There's been a lack of funds, you know, Massachusetts. The industry isn't really operational yet. There's very little actual business activity. So it's tough. We've seen a similar to, I think what they're encountering in Nevada, um, as opposed to places that have more mature industry with more revenue. Uh, but, uh, I'm, I'm, I'm, I'm very hopeful and somewhat confident that, uh, that will make up that deficit. Uh, I think we will. There's some things in the works, some conversations that hopefully will result in real money for the initiative. But absolutely, if folks are inspired, if you ever lived in mass, you were spent time in Massachusetts and love the state and recognize how important it would be to the northeast in New England to have a, you know, a bastion of, of legalization right there for all to see.

Speaker 11: I'm thinking about chipping in a little bit from Massachusetts. Yeah, absolutely. And maybe even if you just love winning right winnings. Great too. I would love to bring to the table and just winning that. You're not even going to believe it to paraphrase a politician, but I feel like we're on like a, like a, like a pledge drive here to get people to stop in for a little bit. We thought we, we, we, we, you know, that was me making fun of Donald Trump. Well, you know, in our issue. Hopefully. That's right. Yeah. Um, and uh, talked about Chris Christie last time. We sure did. We sure did. Yeah. No, I hope we do a lot of winning and the right kind. Uh, I think we will, but we do need support. So back to the telephone. We really do. We got, we got a lot of initiatives and a lot of states and uh, and it needs support and if you guys want to live in a prohibition free society, uh, this is the year. It's gonna happen. Activate Kris Krane. Thank you sir. All right, let me get back to training here for round two. You got to do it. Thank you. So now it's on and you can, you can put these on so you know what it sounds like. And uh, this is one of the, one of the few losers, uh, who's, who's

Speaker 6: willing to chat. And, and by that I mean simply an arm wrestling. Now we just met each other today, but you, you've been around. I have been around for a little bit. Introduce yourself. My name is Chelsea mccray is my first time on a podcast. Hello and welcome. And what work have you done in the past that we might know about? You know, I work with Open Bay in California. I used to work with him in Colorado and yeah, I do sales, I do development of different partnerships. And that's a long introduction. No, that's fine. I mean, open vape, you know, you guys, uh, some sales, I mean if you're responsible for the sales, I feel like many one of many.

Speaker 6: It's all about the people. It's all about, it's all about the people. It's all about the pants. Alright. So you went up against emily, right? And, uh, and it didn't, it didn't, you, you had a tremendous, uh, outfit I saw was there, was there a headpiece involved there? As a headpiece woman? You have to really just pull from your closet. I didn't do any special purchases. I just say, Hey, what's, what's in the bottom drawer, you know, and lucky for me, I have a little bit of background and comecon and e three and in costumes and cosplay. So what do you want to do you want to share more? There are. And that's another podcast I see. I see. And there was also, I mean there's like big plastic spikes and things I think that I saw. Oh, here on the, on the wrist right there. So it's playful. Yeah. I think I had a lot of bark and not a lot of fights, to be honest. That's clearly what happened. That's exactly what happened. So we traditionally ask that you haven't been on the podcast before. We traditionally ask on the soundtrack of your life, one track, one song that's got to be on there. What song would you, would you mentioned edit out my long pause. I think. No, that's fine. The pauses that that adds to the entry, what it does.

Speaker 6: Yeah. And then if you get caught, you could just name any song. There's also a possibility. You're whispering, you're grasping at your, uh, at your goatee and you don't have a goatee. And I'm thinking, I really been thinking about this because I love music and I love. Well, what did you grow up listening to take five? Um, it's a, it's a, um, a jazz. David Greenback. Oh, okay. All right. I was not expecting that. I was thinking. Well, you must mean something else, but you didn't know. Chelsea. Thank you so much. It's good to St Louis. I mean, surprise, shocking, upset. I mean, no one expected this. No one expected this. What happened? You know, I got up there, sat than I just,

Speaker 7: I thought about it. And these poor men in this industry and they just take so much, you know, and the women getting ahead constantly. I mean I'm the chair of women out here running companies rush so much that I just, I looked at little Chris and his struggles and I just, I felt in that 11th hour on the table that I just had to give it to him for, for all of you out there that know me, that's just the kind of girl I am and I want to share the acknowledgement, you know, they worked just as hard as we do the mentor amend to, you know, we work quicker, smarter and better and better. Definitely cuter will. Sure. Yeah. We dress better. I mean we just are so much when I would get sick of it. So I'm just, you know, I looked at his little face and I did see that.

Speaker 7: Yeah, all the defeats them, all of us women. So I, I gave that and you know, I'm okay with that. I'm okay with it. I'm good. Robin. I'll, we'll have our moment. You'll have your mom in any way, in any way, despite this a giveaway. The let the let the let wind to a little grainy. What happened? Did you see how excited he was when? When he did? When I did, I thought I saw a little tear. He called his wife immediately off. A lot of joy that I gave to that man today and I felt good about that. He,

Speaker 6: for some reason, he was calling his wife Adrian. Thanks again. Jamie Lewis. Thank you very much. I know that you want. You did. Wait, what's that? Yeah, sure, of course. Alright, so here's emily packs. Yeah, you got to get up all the way, right? Right here. Yeah, I think I won the fight with my part. Okay, so what we're talking about is that you won the first round, came up a little short in the second round, which is fine. Yeah. It should be in the first round. Chelsea and she was she? She was on here. Here she is with open vape. It's the second year in a row I've taken on a Chelsea. Okay, great. Then the second round had you against Ryan Hurley. I see. He seems to be doing well. He's a man. Yeah. Okay. I also noticed that I can't help but also notice that we have your friends here. Who is your friend? This is sprout the tripod. Sprout the tripod. So sprout has three legs. So that's, that's how that makes sense. Yes. Yes. So she's tried. She has tripod sadness for those at home. She's missing an arm or an arm or a leg. I guess I don't have a dog, so I don't know.

Speaker 6: There we go. Okay. All right. So, um, how do you feel you did? Because you're an important player here. You were at the last one, right? You were at this one. How'd you do it? The last one. Okay. So it was a very intense competition and we were tired. It was a deadlock and they actually switched us over to a southpaw and I lost and siblings my left arms basically useless. And you had, you have a rainbow shirt on. I couldn't help but notice it's um, who is at burt reynolds manner? Corns. It's my man occurrence and I have burt Reynolds and um, what's his name? They both look like burt reynolds, Reynolds. And then the other guy that had a mustache in the seventies, I just lost all of the people, all of the men people. Was it magnum I though. Oh, okay. Good.

Speaker 6: So Tom Selleck, Tom Selleck and there they are clashing horns under a rainbow in your commentary. Has something to do with the random. Do you remember what you said? Well, it says all dreams come true and I believe that to be true in the cannabis industry and the rainbow is a bit of a mention to June, which is pride month and I'm very supportive of the gay and lgbt community. So I think that that's a. those are both the same. I send a different people use different language, so I just thought I'd mentioned you just throw in everything you're supportive of whatever, whatever word you want to use, whatever you want it. Fair enough. How's it going over it? A poseidon. Poseidon is having a good year. We're having a good year and we're really focused on what's next with the elections and trying to keep it going with events like this to raise money for the cause. If, uh, if scoop had a song on scoops, a soundtrack of her life, what do you think that's on my.

Speaker 6: Oh, it was such a good question. Well, because you did very well when you named a song for Jessica Garrison. We remember. So I think you mentioned you did a. was it a velvet underground song? It was a Jane Sweet James has. I'm really into Beck's new song. Wow. Oh, okay. But you know, I'm into it. I've not heard it yet, but I will tell you that one of my favorite songs, not of all time, but have one time was deborah. Do you remember that song? Oh my God. Do I love that song? And I have a really good friend named Deborah so you can sing it to her in falsetto. Yeah, exactly. I think her name's Deborah. Right? Um, but yeah, that's my song right now. I feel like it's a funny song because they think he's responding to Kanye is ignorant criticism of him and I think that's a great way to be, to make something awesome. There we go. To rap battle between Kanye, unbeknownst to con me and maybe you never know. And, and maybe even unbeknownst tobacco, I'm projecting. That's me putting that on the situation. Emily packs you. Thank you. Thank you to you scout

Speaker 12: sprouts. Oh, what did I say? Oh, I see people say scouts. Well, listen to scout in, um, to kill a mockingbird. So that's why, uh, yeah. Yeah. Okay, fair enough to sprout. Sprout, sprout the tripod. High fives. Excellent. You got it by arm. Wrestling continues. I just met a guy, I just met a new friend, a new friend, you know, from maps. Who's an important organization? Jade. Natanya Omen. How did I do on your name? Okay. And, um, first off, you have the best pants here. Can you explain these pants? I mean, they're very vibrant in color, right? I believe in psychedelics. Indeed. While you've worked for maps and maps is a, is a big, uh, a big part of why don't you take us through what maps is doing, right? We're a 30 year old organization and we're conducting clinical trials looking at psychedelics and marijuana and we've had a lot of successes with Mtma were in the transition to make it available to more and more people transition.

Speaker 12: That's one thing we like to talk about cannabis here. And I know that you've also been quite busy in cannabis. We got a $2,000,000 grant from Colorado to study, um, marijuana when we're setting the whole plant for ptsd. Amazing. And we're, we have a, have a lawsuit right out to the DEA because they want to make the kind of cannabis that we're used to show. Research is very limited. It doesn't really show the beauty and the opportunity that this medicine can have for people. This is what Dr Seuss Leslie's going. She has to go through tonight and you're actually pursuing the massive to kind of say we want to use our own because we know how good we really think this is going to benefit the whole cannabis industry. It's going to show that there are, there's need for more diversity and having that be available to more people and our research will show how it can actually impact on people's mental health.

Speaker 12: Amazing. Amazing. And so when does that a trial start operating? You have to be adjusted. It's first or we're just got the fruit. You just got the ability to start. It's taken us eight years to be able to get to this point. Right? So, but we're still trying to get the marijuana that we want to use for our research to your specific on that. We're not going to just start with any. We're actually going to plug on through and make sure that we get the right, the right product, so to speak. Yes. Fantastic. How long have you been with maps and that's per year. And just tell everyone about all of the beautiful pieces of artwork that I just saw at the high times thing, uh, in nor cal, I mean, just amazing pieces of art, right? Yes. I'm looking forward to seeing it. What is the connection between and orange? I think we really feel that we've seen people who have been in our research have been able to see how psychedelics and cannabis express where they're going and where they see their life and what they see for the world. And I think really art is that art inherently is visionary. And so I think that maps matches in full support of that work and the burning man community and all these places where people are building community and using art integrates and change people's perception of things.

Speaker 5: There we go. It's all about perception. Perception is reality check. That's what I think. It's good to meet you. Nice to meet you and keep going and we will be watching and once you get what you want, we'll have you on again. How about all that?

Speaker 12: Yeah. Great to be here. Let me just stop it as, as j stands right over there. We have. We have the better half. We have Diane's. Thank you. I'm glad that you consider me the better. I mean everybody does, right? Does anybody consider jj to see if it gets it her self, the veterans know typically in those husband and wife teams? I think it usually is the life that's considered the better half. I don't know how. How does that dynamic play out in your relationship? In my relationship, my girlfriend is definitely the better half. I think it's typically that one without question. It's not even close. So did you just get here or if you've been watching some of the sky here. We walked over and we're enjoying the outside.

Speaker 5: I see. Or were you watching the basketball game? No. Okay. You were just enjoying me. Alright. So nate Bradley and physically connecting and taking down some some plants in the. In the meantime, traditional plants. What's the latest with Zurich count is our caskey ventures as I call them, or Canna advisors.

Speaker 12: You know, we're having fun here with the double header of Arcview and the NCI event coming out, Tavi additional events that go on all around that. So it's good times. It's good times. It's, it's basically our version of vacation and we still, you know, we use industry events to be able to go to good places and hang out with their friends. They're all in the industry. And so what's happening back in Colorado, oh gosh, where does, you know, getting ready for the whole world explode really.

Speaker 5: And now are you speaking of, uh, of new regulations and a extra special, you know, rules that are going into effect as far as Colorado is concerned? Or are you talking about the presidential election?

Speaker 12: I'm talking about legalization across.

Speaker 5: I see. Okay. Alright. So you see the law, you're playing the long game, you see that a Uruguay, they are going to finally harvest. You're seeing Spain, they have, you know, their uh, their Supreme Court ruling, which uh, from uh, Madrid, which Barcelona is like, I don't need to play with that. You see Australia coming alive, you see MMPR happening with side effects, if you will, in, in Canada. Um, and pretty much a what, four or five states on the ballot adult use.

Speaker 12: It's like seven or seven or nine. I think there are going to be on the ballot. We're still waiting on some signatures for confirmation on a couple of those. Um, and probably 17, that was some kind of legalization effort. Some of them legislatively. Yeah.

Speaker 5: So just uh, just was signed in and so it's, it's a little bit different than the amendment. Sixty four days I would imagine.

Speaker 12: Yeah. Because that was the only thing going on really in our world back then. His at 65.

Speaker 5: So, uh, so that happened. Now this is happening and now let's watch the rest. Right? You know what I mean? Yeah. I ha. I hope with an umbrella drink in my hand on a beach somewhere. And it could be on the beach of Puerto Rico. It could be on the beach of us. Virgin Islands to continue the theme. Here we go. Alright, let's watch some more arm wrestling, I think. How about that, Diane? Good speaking with you. You know, here's, here's Jay's dot Koski, and I just said to you off mic that, you know, we referred to Diana's the better half and I just wanted to get your thoughts or feelings.

Speaker 5: I'll fucking caught. You know, you're reading off of a Mug is what you're doing. I know you are because Diane just pointed out this Mug that says, uh, what do we want? Coffee? When do we want it? I'll fucking cut you. Listen, I don't need you to cover for me. I say what? I said. Fair enough. You're gonna you're gonna. Spit it and make me look like I'm some kind of a psycho. I get it. That's all right. It's been tried before and it hasn't kept me down. This is your, you're lending a further credence to the fact that Diane is, is the better half. I, I suggested that you would, uh, that you would agree with that in all. Honestly, I appreciate your candor and your or die is to better half. I'm a lucky guy. I am one lucky guy. Not only to have her as my wife is my business partner, mother of my children.

Speaker 5: She's wonderful. There we go. Happy Father's Day. Fine. Thank you. You're welcome. Uh, and I guess thanks to Diane for, for making that. So right now what we can talk about is the fact that, I don't know whose idea was to have a arcview start on father's day, but we're going to be having those conversations with troy and the team probably in the next couple of days. Sure enough, A. Jay. Thank you so much, Diane. Thank you so much. Good seeing you. You got likewise. They're doing left then. Right? So we're in the middle of, of the Jamie Lewis and rob k, pretty epic. It's an epic. Everybody here has been waiting for this all night. And uh, um, with the champion by the way. Hey, Bradley will. Thank you so much for that this year. God, congratulations. That was a, that was a lot of fun. Still racing rumor has it that you're going to win a trophy of Kampia all

Speaker 9: hoped out. Yeah. I cannot wait to put that in my storage closet. Congratulations. Thank you so much. So the MC of the second annual and first annual. You did the other one too, didn't you? That is correct. Let me help you with that area. That is correct. So far you want to be in here is where you want to be. There you go. Hey Man, don't you tell me where I want to be a mother fucker. Rob Van dam? Yes sir. I mean, how do you, how do you fucking show you? How do you describe, I mean, you know, professional wrestling is only some of it isn't some of what some of your thing. Oh, of course they, right now it's a very small part of my thing because um, because right now I do it as little as possible, but in all fairness, I got to say I do everything as little as possible right now.

Speaker 9: That's fair. That's a, it's honest. It's working very much in my favor. Fans can't understand that. They're like, dude, go back to the wet. The Dudley's needs your help, dude. I couldn't give a fuck. You know what I mean? Until there's a reason on the business and to go back there, um, I'm really enjoying being able to do stuff like this. You know what I mean? I live in California. You had this fundraising event. It's a great cause when I'm wrestling fulltime, emmy invitation I get whatsoever automatically is rejected because I never have time to do and you can't do it. I'm not looking forward to going back to that. I feel like I did enough of that. Yeah. Can you, do you want to go ahead and talk about pain management and. Absolutely. Yeah. Well, I mean, you know, we want to know professional wrestling.

Speaker 9: You guys really do throw each other around. Absolutely. And you know, there's got to be a fair amount of pain in there. And we were talking to some former NFL players and former NHL players about pain management, uh, with, with cannabis. I would imagine that's a, that's got to be something that, uh, you know, that, that uh, that might be important of your thing. Your. Absolutely. Yeah, it definitely is. Uh, to be completely honest, I have to say that I started smoking at 21 and originally it was more of a recreational thing. Sure. I didn't want to, it's peer pressure, but it was the fact that the other athletes that I respected were smoking and telling me to do it. That compromised my position on it. I say because these guys were athletic, they were wrestlers. I was young, wanted to be like them and they all smoked pot and I was like, how can that be when I was taught in high school, this is bad.

Speaker 9: You're going to be a loser to hallucinogenic. Yeah, sure. Like exactly the same as acid or PCP. That's what I was taught back in the day. And so, uh, anyway, that broke the barrier. And eventually, yes, I learned how to use it to the, to the utmost. I learned how to optimize it to use to make my life better in wellness, which means mental and physical health. Never. Absolutely. There we have it. So you're here in California, um, what else are you doing besides the wrestling and managing pain and moderating things like the MPP arm wrestling as far as I'm managing pain, by the way. Uh, I should say when you were a professor Ressler, um, uh, keeping yourself healthy is, is probably at least half of the job. Sure. Like, I came from an old school where you don't admit that you're hurt because then you can't work, right?

Speaker 9: So you keep working at it. If you really can't work then you're hurt. Otherwise we're not a hurt. You're hurt. You tape your tone of the other tobacco out there. Don't worry about it. I got no brothers, so I'm used to a conditioning and treating myself. Oh, there you go. Glad that eventually I learned of the benefits of cannabis in that, in that area, you know. So besides that, I wrestled som next weekend I have a couple of matches, but it's in England. A lot of the fans here won't be able to see it. But next Saturday and Sunday I'll be in, uh, outside of London. And then, uh, and then I'll go to Amsterdam for a couple of days. [inaudible], that's what I always do when I'm in the area drop by. Xcel could love it. Yes sir. Van Damme, sir to him. And uh, and then um, uh, you know, I do somewhat appearances.

Speaker 9: I do some writing, I, I, I liked being able to do different things and I'm always spread out over a million projects to a flaw is a matter of fact, but not yet, but I have some that make the top of my priority list that I, that I focus on. And right now I have one really big project that, uh, I'm not really talking a whole lot about. Okay. All right. Uh, but it has to do with the movie business. I did three motion pictures last year of 2015 and, uh, through those connections that lead to some really good shit moving forward. So we'll keep in touch with you and any new fans that are hearing your voice, maybe for the real, the real rvd everywhere. That's my social media and everywhere. Twitter, facebook, instagram, the real rvd, the real rvda. We'll wait to see what the news is.

Speaker 9: When do you think will know? Well, it's hard to predict because it's been so hard for me to get to an atomic is all on me. Like everything is waiting for me. I have everything lined up and I need to focus on it, but because I have this, I have this position in life where first off, spiritual health makes the top of the priority list. Sure. And that means that business comes below that. So I have so many projects. If I could just focus like a lot of people that they can't rest, you don't do. I would have like so much more shit done, but she's so much more. But instead you need to someone I need to arrest someone that doesn't mind taken 15 years for one project even though I got 30 projects and that just seems to work for me. That's fine. So go with your own Pacer, that's for sure. I marched to the beat of my own drum and anyone that knows me knows,

Speaker 5: knows that Rob van dam. Thanks so much. We'll see you down the line. Right on. Dude. He's shaking my head even though you people can't see this when you're hearing this through audio outage only said wherever you hear the show, however you hear the show. Just so. Just so you know. Yo. Okay, so I'm so glad that we checked in mid, mid stream there where you had the wound and then you offered why the Kris Krane affair is how we're referring to it, why that happened. And then Jamie Lewis after the HSA cannery was all done after the date Bradley's of the world had left the scene. Here comes the rematch that everybody came to see. Here comes rob Kampia and Jamie Lewis. First lefthanded. What happened? What happened first? Lefthanded. What happened?

Speaker 7: So first I had to struggle to get robbed, to bring his elbow to the table. His little winglets I see on the left and then reminded him that he would get his day in the sun for his right, but that we were going to repeat it exactly how it went down last time. Last time. And I struggled and then the crowd backed me up because there's been so much shit talking on social media and retracting of the experience as a whole. I wanted to be clear that we were going to do this this way so he couldn't say his arm was fucking diary because he had won so many matches on the right. I wanted to take that soft, subtle, relaxed winglets. Bring it in, bring it in and crush it. So and so. You did. I did. All right. So. So, so lefthanded just like last year lefthanded you take the wind lefthanded I took the win and then we switched and then we switched and right handed I took the wind, took the win again.

Speaker 7: I did. And that's why everybody came. That is why everybody came and that's why everybody listening. And that is why everybody raised embedded on Jamie Lewis because they knew they were going to win. There was a, there were significant money on you winning and there was. Thank you for those listening. MPP Dot Org. This is for that. This is for that. A very important organization. All Shit togging aside, this is an amazing opportunity and we raised quite a bit of loop for it, so I'm pretty proud of what we came out of raising some more. Jamie. Thank you. Thank you very much.
