Cannabist Show: He writes marijuana laws; She's a consultant
Friday, Jul 31, 2015

Our guests on The Cannabist Show this week: Cannabis consultant Katherine Grimm of CNN’s “High Profits” series and Democratic Colorado state Sen. Pat Steadman, who works on marijuana laws and pot taxation.


From a July 28 report by The Associated Press:

An initial toxicology report for Sandra Bland, who died in a Texas jail cell three days after her arrest during a traffic stop, raises the possibility that she may have used marijuana while in custody, two experts said.

The amount of THC, one of the active components of marijuana, in Bland’s system was 18 micrograms per liter (18 nanograms per milliliter), according to the report released Monday. That’s more than three times the legal limit for drivers in Colorado and Washington, states that permit the recreational use of marijuana.
