MCBA Spotlight: Amanda Reiman, DPA & Kyla Hill, Hemp Butter
It’s Amanda Reiman time once again and with the win, Amanda joins us to discuss what we the people can do to participate in the language of how Prop 64 gets written into law. Amanda shares that localities will be dictating where state licenses can be had. One thought is for folks to discuss with local elected officials that no cannabis in a locality means no cannabis tax revenue in that locality. We then discuss that individuals have the opportunity to go to town halls and public hearings to meet and greet public officials and to give direct feedback. So essentially, act now or forever cede your peace. Kyla Hill then joins us and gives us her unique perspective on people, product and inner-peace.

Speaker 2: Amanda Reiman and Kyla Hill. It's Amanda Reiman time, once again, and with the wind. Amanda joins us to discuss what we, the people can do to participate in the language of how prop 64 gets written into law, Amanda, to shares that localities will be dictating where state licenses can be had. One thought is for folks to discuss with local elected officials that no cannabis in a locality means no cannabis tax revenue in that locality. We then discussed that individuals have the opportunity to go to town halls and public hearings to meet and greet public officials and give direct feedback, so essentially act now or forever. Seed your piece. Kyla hillman joins us and gives us her unique perspective on people. Product and inner peace. Walk into a cannabis economy. I'm your host Seth Adler. Check us out on social with the habit can economy. That's two ends of the word economy. Amanda Reiman, Kyle Hill.

Speaker 3: Oh God, nothing good. I had a packet of nuts from starbucks leftover from the airport yesterday.

Speaker 1: Okay, well let's. It's it's protein or what they say is good fat.

Speaker 3: Yeah, it was fine. It was, you know, it wasn't my most nutritious breakfast, but we got in. We were delayed out of O'hare. We had to fly from Savannah to O'hare and of course were related o'hare because it's O'hare short and united that we didn't get home til really late last night.

Speaker 1: Well, welcome back. Thank you so much for giving us a few minutes once again, which would mean that it's Amanda Reiman time.

Speaker 3: It is.

Speaker 1: So congratulations on the heavy lift. A prop 64 has passed.

Speaker 3: Yes, it has passed and has passed quite convincingly, which is always great to see. It was, it was not a nail biter. Uh, it was a very convincing when including wins in all three counties that make up the Emerald Triangle. So it feels good to know that the farmers are ready to, the public is ready and regardless of what happens at the federal level, we are moving forward.

Speaker 1: Yeah, we'll get to the federal level in a minute or maybe we won't because we have the pleasure of speaking with Ethan about that as a matter of fact. Um, so I do want to talk about prop 64 and what about the day after? So this is the day after the week, after the month after, whatever it is, we talked about what was in the bill and what people love or didn't love or kind of misunderstood if you will or you know, kind of didn't understand, uh, you know, as far as, uh, the verbiage, uh, now we are in a place where we're going to actually write this into law. And so I wonder if I'm listening to Amanda and I actually really do want to change things or be involved in any way. What are the various ways I can do that?

Speaker 3: Well, I think there's several ways that people can be involved now than before. It's. So one of the things that the main focus for DPA and pop before was the retroactive relief and sentence restructuring for people who are currently incarcerated or who have records related to marijuana. And one of the big critiques during the campaign was, oh, this isn't really going to get anybody on a jail that wasn't really reducing anything. That's not really going to help anybody and we know already that that's absolutely not true and we're getting cases. I've every day report the people who were charged with felonies that are getting them reduced to misdemeanor, that either paying a fine or having their charges dropped completely of people who are getting out of jail early because their sentences have already been served. So this is a process that is already taken off and so if you're somebody out there who has a case related to marijuana or a charge on your record related to marijuana or you're currently on probation because of marijuana, we use investigate what your rights are regarding getting your sentences reduced, getting off probation. I believe the attorney general of a website in California now has information about what people need to do in order to get that process going. And there's a myriad of amazing criminal defense attorneys here in California. I'm like, oh, Mark Figerola and Joe Rogan away, and Annie Margolin and all of them do amazing work. Helping people get these records expunged. Seek out an attorney, find out what your rights are, and that's something that each individual now can do to help clear themselves.
