The CannaBS Detector

Have you ever thought about quitting your day job to pursue getting a slice of the multibillion-dollar cannabis industry pie? Are you currently investing in, or considering investing in the cannabis industry? If you answered yes to either of those questions, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO MISS THIS PODCAST.

Join the cannabis industry's very own veteran BS detector, Kristen Yoder, as she uncovers and dissects the various scams and pitfalls most, if not all, people will encounter along their cannabis journey, through entertaining and informational interviews with experts across the industry.

“The best decisions are informed decisions, and in an industry as new and hyped up in the media as the Cannabis industry is, there are many opportunities for BS to occur, and it is occurring on a major scale."

Continuing the conversation from Part 1, my good friend and experienced advocate, Brad Slaughter of Nature’s Secret Holdings, joins us once again to dive into the reality of what will follow post-legalization. What will regulations look like in the future, compared to the past? Will we learn from our mistakes to create a better system?

Our past with cannabis is complicated and repetitive. With progress and advocacy for cannabis sparking up in the 1970’s, our fight for the plant started long before that. General misinformation and a lack of understanding surrounding cannabis has troubled its image throughout time and remains to do so to this day. Education is needed to prepare us for legalization. Listen in to learn about what’s going on in today’s industry, and how that will effect the future of cannabis.

What do you think about cannabis legalization on a federal level? Did you learn anything new? If so, let me know in the comments below!

3 Lessons Learned:

  1. There were reports as early as 1944 that supported the fact that cannabis has medicinal properties.
  2. Taxation on legal cannabis drops down to the end user, pushing consumers towards the illicit market because of the affordability. The perfect example is California, where the black market is 3x the size of the legal market.
  3. The state (like in California) wouldn’t have to enforce your regulations with law enforcement if 2/3 of the state didn’t opt out of commercial cannabis sales. The tax money from that 1/3 of the state will not cover enforcement costs.

List of Topics/subjects discussed:

  • The need for cannabis regulations
  • Cannabis reparations moving forward
  • Decriminalization vs. Legalization and the longevity of each
  • The 1970’s movement and it’s history
  • Decriminalization in the past
  • Tax code 280E and it’s effects post-legalization

  • The findings of the 1944 La Guardia Report
  • The threat of cannabis to Big Pharma
  • The possibility of ATF controlling and regulating cannabis post-legalization
  • Vape safety regulations and common misconceptions
  • General lack of information around cannabis in the government
