Smart Approaches to Marijuana was here today and I got into a little argument with Kevin Sabet near the end of the presentation. Here’s the audio.
Audio from November 14, 2013, Kevin Sabet
Dr. Christian Thurstone, M.D. from Colorado spoke first. He said the marijuana industry exploded in Colorado in 2009, but he didn’t explain why. A member of the audience asked him to explain why, but he still didn’t explain it. So, I asked him if it was because of the Obama Administration’s “Ogden Memo” in October of 2009. Dr. Kevin Sabet, Ph.D., stood up, looked at me, and said, “That’s exactly right!” Then, Dr. Thurstone said the Colorado courts had decided a case around that time that caregivers were not limited to just one patient. So, it was the combination of those two events that caused the explosion.
