Medical marijuana is now legal in more than half of the country. The cities of Denver, Seattle, Washington and Oakland, Calif., have also decriminalized psilocybin (the psychedelic element in “magic mushrooms”). Oregon went one step further, decriminalizing all drugs in small quantities, including heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine.Attitudes toward drugs have changed considerably over the years. But the question of whether all drugs should be legalized continues to be contentious. How much have attitudes toward illegal drugs changed? And why?This week, Jane Coaston talks to Ismail Ali, the policy and advocacy director for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, and Jonathan P. Caulkins, a professor of operations research and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University's Heinz College, about the pros and cons of legalizing all drugs.Mentioned in this episode:“Is there a Case for Legalizing Heroin?” by Benjamin Wallace-Wells in The New Yorker“The Drug-Policy Roulette” by Jonathan P.

The jury's still out on the newest cannabinoid to take the world by storm -- Delta-8 THC. Is it safe, legal, or an interesting high? On this episode two wise men with competing points of view weigh in.Does this sound familiar?This episode is brought to you by Medical Cannabis Mentor, providing state-of-the-art education to dispensary personnel, healthcare providers and patients. A new cannabis product hits the shelves and suddenly mainstream media is reporting a surge in illnesses and hospitalizations. It happened on June 29 when University of Virginia Hospital reported dozens of people crowding the ER after ingesting…guess what…the cannabis industry's newest rock star product, D8 THC!I don't want to be an alarmist but I immediately wondered if the introduction of D8, which very few people really understand, is going to be this year's version of EVALI, the scary vape-related lung diseases that killed 68 people and sickened 3,000 more in 2019 and 2020? Or is this clickbait about another cannabis product that hit the market fast, created through-the-roof consumer demand, and has yet to be federally regulated?I'm not sure yet, but it's safe to say that Delta-8 THC (D8) presents a great opportunity and a great challenge to the cannabis industry: Big financial upside and some POTENTIALLY serious downsides. To get a clearer perspective on this “new” cannabinoid (that was in fact identified in 1941 by scientist Roger Adams) I invited two wise people with competing interests to discuss.Dr. Matt Elmes holds a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology from Stony Brook University, where he focused on endocannabinoid and phytocannabinoid cellular transport mechanisms. Today Matt is Scientific Director for CannaCraft, one of the largest cannabis product manufacturers in the world. Chris Fontes is CEO and Founder of Project Hemp Flower, a website where farmers sell their smokable flower directly to consumers. Fontes and his team hunt and curate high-grade product that provides consumer confidence because of their quality control. His latest brainchild is Trojan Horse Edibles, full-spectrum, full-strength dispensary grade edibles from hemp CBD.Listen in to learn if D8 is natural or unnatural… safe or harmful…and how its high differs from that of good old Delta-9 THC. And get ready for D10, which according to my sources, will soon be hurtling down the pike!Is it possible that THC has more variants than COVID????See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Some of the many wise things you'll hear include: "What we saw with the Timothy Leary generation, which was more of a grass roots movement was chaos and confusion and now with this revolution we're taking off tie dye and putting on suits and ties and publishing papers. And that's how we're moving ahead now. I don't think either is right or wrong.""I was at an ayahuasca circle in Portland OR and was having vivid visuals and beautiful and difficult experiences. At one point I shot up and said “I have to know how this is working in my brain.” For me psychedelics were a gateway drug to science!""There's a saying, “neurons that fire together wire together,” meaning that if you keep doing the behaviors over again [they form a habit in the brain]. A lot of psychedelics temporarily disturb that rigid firing pattern and let parts of the brain that don't normally communicate with each other make novel connections.""We have a theory that depression is caused by low serotonin in the brain, but we don't actually have a lot of evidence supporting that. A newer theory of depression is that it's a high level inflammatory state in the nervous system. Psychedelics (and SSRIs) are anti-inflammatory. This may be why even microdosing can have an anti-depressant effect.""We can explain a lot of how psychedelics work with science and then we hit this wall... There's this receptor site... and that neurotransmitter... and then, God."Psychedelics don't change beliefs or politics. What they seem to do, according to the data, is make people less extreme.Like any tool you've got to know how to wield it.

Hemp is confusing, not only as to what it is, but what it can do, which is why I was surprised when my friend, Max Montrose, founder of The Trichome Institute and creator of the amazing Interpening course, told me about high-potency hemp flower that gets you high. These high CBD hemp strains grown on small, boutique farms are being sold by Colorado-based Project Hemp Flower. Some clock in at 8-25% CBD (average commercial “high” strains average about 3% CBD). More confusing still, these strains, many of which have no THC, are so rich in terpenes and other phytocannabinoids that they actually get you high, or at the very least cause a “head change.” It's so good, Max told me, that Trichome Institute is now sending Project Hemp Flower CBD to people who sign up for its Interpening course but have no access to legal cannabis.These Brave New Hemp strains are just as varied as Delta-9 THC cannabis. They have names like "Alpen Gleaux," "Sour Space Candy," "Oregon Guava," and come in fat frosty nugs, small tight nugs, and many shades of green. Some are jet black – you can see a few examples below. All are tested and the results are posted on the PHF website so buyers know exactly what they're getting.Max, ever evangelical about all advances in cannabis culture, introduced me to Chris Fontes, CEO of Project Hemp Flower, who says that if you can locate interesting hemp genetics, grow and cure it with the same precision as cannabis then you'll get an aromatic, smokable flower that is great for people who need it medicinally or who don't want to get annihilated.

Dr. Eric Goodman, the creator of Foundation Training, has developed a system of pain relief that integrates movement and posture, heat, breath and our favorite plant.

Use promo code BRAVE to get your (almost) free sample pack. Happy Zzzzz's.I've devoted a lot of air space to the topic of cannabis and sleep in the last months, and now I want to turn to pain, the #1 condition for which people use cannabis, and introduce you to Dr. Eric Goodman. A former athlete who is no stranger to injury, surgery and rehab, Eric trained as a chiropractor, where he learned anatomy, physiology and treatment. But over time, and as his own pain continued to plague him, he realized that much of what he was taught was insufficient. “We look to the wrong places for solutions—which keeps us from finding immediate relief. “he writes in his upcoming book, tentatively titled Foundations of Health: Harnessing The Restorative Power of Movement, Heat and the Endocannabinoid System To Actively Adapt for a Healthy Life. “Ultimately, it hampers us from living healthy lives…”These realizations set him on a road to create Foundation Training, a method that strengthens the areas around what goes wrong in our bodies so we can find relief and prevent injuries from occurring in the future.Eric and I share the same publisher, Karen Rinaldi at Harper Wave, who a few weeks ago slipped me a pre-publication manuscript of Foundations of Health. The book integrates a decade of research, clinical evidence and patient results into something that goes beyond biomechanics and standard adjustments – it's an integrative approach to pain, especially chronic pain, that makes sense. I gobbled it up.Instead of treating the area where pain occurs, Foundations identifies four factors that contribute to pain alleviation: posture and movement, breath, heat and, you guessed it, cannabis and how it affects the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). It offers practical methods of optimizing each of these factors, while also parsing common myths and facts: heat vs. cold for injury, rest vs. small amounts (“microdoses”) of physical stress, and how cannabis, properly used, can increase awareness of balance and movement. This enhanced somatosensory perception neatly fits his explanation of “couchlock,” in which you feel the weight of your limbs more than you typically do.This interview also marks Eric's coming out as a cannabis user and advocate. Like many, he harbored concerns that open advocacy could jeopardize his practice, but I predict that it will put him in the excellent company of the growing number of maverick health practitioners who use cannabis can be an excellent adjunct to pain relief with fewer side effects than NSAIDs (Advil, Aleve, Motrin) and opioids. Welcome to the fold, Dr. Goodman!Foundations of Health (tentative title) will be out January 2022.

Not all sleeplessness is created equally. Zippz is the first CBD sleep formula tailored to your body and to your particular condition. I think it's a game changer (and life saver)! One of the missions of our podcast is to occasionally vet great cannabis and CBD products in this crowded, confusing market where claims are tossed about with very little evidence backing them up. (This problem plagues the entire CBD market due to lack of regulation). I'm happy to report that I finally found a CBD sleep product that has given me many nights of uninterrupted Zzzzz's without the morning fog or side effects of sleeping pills.Zippz is the first “personalized” CBD product to market. Their 225 formulas blend CBD with a half dozen botanical compounds (ashwagandha, melatonin, kava, for example) and terpenes that are tailored to individual conditions. Do you have trouble falling or staying asleep? Is it related to pain, anxiety or neither? Are you male or female, young or old? Do you exercise? All of these factors are considered when matching you to your formula.Here's how it works: You fill out a brief assessment which identifies your particular form of sleep disturbance and physical condition. Zippz analyzes it and sends you a report and two different soft gel cap formulas for you to sample. You determine which works best and let them know. If you order, the money you spent on the trial pack is deducted from your first purchase. If your condition changes, the formula is easily adjusted.Zippz was created when California entrepreneur (and fellow insomniac), Scott Eagle, went to a dispensary in search of help. A 20-something person handed him a few products and told him to “start low and go slow,” advise he found it woefully inadequate and far too random. So he raised some seed money and worked with doctors and formulators to create ZippzDisclosure: This episode is unusual because Zippz approached to sponsor four episodes. When a sponsor purchases four episodes we offer them a short promotional interview. In this case, I found the product impressive that I offered Scott a full interview in hopes of helping my fellow insomniacs.If you use the promo code BRAVE you can get the samples for a 50% discount. If you take advantage of this offer, please let me know if these formulas work for you as well as they are working for me.Sweet dreams!See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Good morning, RVA! It's 77 °F, and you should expect more of this week's hot weather until this evening—and then you should expect some rain to roll through. Highs tomorrow, though, look like they'll stay below 80 °F!Water coolerAs of this morning, the Virginia Department of Health reports the seven-day average of new COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths as: 172, 16, and 6.7, respectively. VDH reports a seven-day average of 17.1 new cases in and around Richmond (Richmond: -2; Henrico: 15, and Chesterfield: 4.1). Since this pandemic began, 1,359 people have died in the Richmond region. 46.7%, 58.4%, and 55.0% of the population in Richmond, Henrico, and Chesterfield have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Yep, Richmond is once again reporting a negative 7-day average of new cases. VDH reports that the city now has had 17,139 total cases of COVID-19—the exact same number they reported back on June 10th (and again on June 14th and June 17th). Perhaps if you're trying to get a feel for the amount of community spread of the disease (something Emily Oster recommends as a starting point to assess the risks of various coronadecisions) you're better off using the regional case count.As of today, adult use of marijuana is now legal in Virginia. Things you can now do: have up to an ounce of marijuana; use marijuana in your private residence; grow up to four plants in your private residence; and share marijuana with an adult friend (as long as you're not pulling any ”marijuana is given away contemporaneously with another reciprocal transaction between the same parties” shenanigans). Things you still cannot (or should not) do: sell marijuana, drive while high, have marijuana on school property, or use marijuana in public. The state's new website, cannabis.virginia.gov, has a good FAQ that you should read. I still have a hard time believing that URL and its weed leaf favicon exists. Mel Leonor at the Richmond Times-Dispatch reports on reactions from a bunch of folks hoping to grow—or make money off of folks hoping to grow—and a nice look at what's next for the General Assembly to tackle while we wait the interminable amount of time until legal sales start happening in 2024. I still say something changes to shift that 2024 timeline forward. Spending three years in this weird in-between space just seems untenable! And I'm not the only one, the Virginia Mercury's Ned Oliver reports that Virginia NORML's 2022 legislative priority is “to expedite retail access for adult consumers, both through already operational medical dispensaries and by moving up the date VCCA can begin issuing new licenses.”Also, as of today, you can no longer keep a box turtle as a pet. Rex Springston has the details in the Virginia Mercury.Via /r/rva, a picture of yesterday's train derailment down at Rocketts Landing, news I first heard about from this jarring GRTC tweet: “ATTENTION GRTC PULSE RIDERS, WE CANNOT SERVICE THE ROCKETTS LANDING STATION DUE TO AN TRAIN ACCIDENT.” This is the second derailment in, what, about a month?Today at 3:30 PM, the Library of Virginia will host a panel discussion about Virginia's 1971 Constitution. I mean, sign me up: “Join us for a stimulating conversation about the advances made possible by this constitution and the work that still remains.” I live for stimulating conversations about old documents/PDFs! The event is free, but you'll need to register ahead of time. Also, remember, today is the last day for you to stop by the library to see the original copies of Virginia's Constitutions of 1776, 1869, 1902, and 1971.Tonight at 8:00 PM, VPM will premier How the Monuments Came Down over on their YouTube.

Brave New Weed

A spirited discussion with the co-founder of The Conscious Fund, which invests in psychedelic research and therapies. My question: Can psychedelics and profits happily coexist?My guest this week is Henri Sant-Cassia, co-founder of The Conscious Fund, a $60 million venture capital fund that has backed 14 companies in the fledgling psychedelic research and therapy space.Every day there is more frothy media surrounding the possibilities of psychedelic therapy to successfully treat depression, PTSD, end of life despair -- problems that modern medicine and pharma companies have not yet conquered. There is early evidence that psychedelics can really change the game and optimists are hoping that legalization and increased funding can create better solutions and, at the same time, a more compassionate world.But anyone who has watched cannabis legalization knows that it is difficult, if not impossible, to protect those who risked their lives, reputations, and often freedom advocating for these euphoria-inducing substances from the euphoria-inducing rush of large sums of investment capital. To wit: Some early stage psychedelic startups are following the pharma model of changing a few molecules in the natural plant structures and attempting to patent them. They're claiming to have “invented” entirely new substances. One such company, the UK/US-based Compass Pathways, which is backed by free market evangelists Peter Thiel and Rebekah Mercer (both Trump supporters) has been trying to patent psilocybin for years. While Compass's filings are unlikely to succeed, there are many other ways they can gum up the works for companies (both for-profit and nonprofit) that have been fighting for decades to liberate these substances from Schedule 1 restrictions and make them available to those in need. Henri and I discuss this and other thorny conflicts that inevitably arise in the tricky marriage of psychedelics and profits.The more I look into this the more ethical, financial and therapeutic issues arise. For one: Can psychedelics be successfully delivered without therapy and if so, what role with pharmaceutical companies that only make medicines play.

“Defund the police? We should defund the drug war first!”This episode is sponsored by Zippz, state-of-the-art personalized CBD medicines for sleep and stressMost cops have never been fans of legalization. Diane Goldstein, Executive Director of the Law Enforcement Action Project, explains why and how she's working to change hardened minds. An extensive 2020 survey of 3615 law enforcement officers revealed that a large chasm that still exists between changing our out of date drug laws and changing the minds of the people who enforce those laws. While 37 US states have some form of medical or adult use laws, the police are still being trained to associate the devil's lettuce with criminality, a designation that was created by drug laws themselves. Here 's a sampling of the study's findings: 75% of cops surveyed had never used cannabis or used it less than four times.Two thirds agree that “marijuana is less dangerous than other Schedule 1 drugs” but over 75% still believe it is a gateway drug and that legalization leads to use of harder drugs.Over half of the cops surveyed in illegal states still believe that enforcing misdemeanor possession charges is a worthwhile use of their time.These statistics explain why I invited Diane Goldstein on to the podcast. Diane was a cop for 20 years and today she heads LEAP, the Enforcement Action Partnership. She is a cop who saw the failures of the Drug War from a professional and personal point of view and now works to educate and change hardened minds within the law enforcement hierarchy. We've all heard cops say, “We don't make the law, we only enforce it,” but the truth is that cops have a vested interest in and receive massive amounts of state and federal funding to maintain the prohibition status quo. “Cops often repress reform because it doesn't support their agenda,” is how Diane expresses it in this interview.It's no secret that Diane's task is Herculean, but she is optimistic that change is afoot. “Yes,” she says, “we must change laws but we also have to show Law Enforcement that they'll still have plenty of tools they need to do their jobs effectively.” In other words, reward them with the same funds they would have used to investigate marijuana crimes. “Before talking about defunding the police [a misleading and dreadful phrase to explain reapportioning funds in my humble opinion], we should defund the drug war first. Drug law enforcement is a bludgeon that drives racial disparities in policing across the country.”ALSO...Be sure to check out the “Trusted Brands'' tab on the Brave New Weed website.

Troy Ivan, founder of ExactCraft, on how to make the best extractions at home, the importance of “cannaflavins,” and the newest product for pain relief that you’ve never heard of (but will want to try)!This episode is sponsored by MedicalCannabisMentor.com, now offering CME courses!Extraction is a beautiful but confusing thing, especially if you’re new to cannabis. Extracted products range from the sludgy RSO (now called FECO, full extract cannabis oil) that is used to treat certain cancers, to the golden, superterpy full melt rosin, and everything in between. This episode’s guest, Troy Ivan, is a self-made expert in home extraction and he explains how people trying this at home can get the best product and highest yield with the equipment his company, ExactCraft, has perfected over the last few years. Troy is a former finance guy who, in his words, went from “extraction of the dollar to extraction of cannabis oil.” He did it in the Steve Jobs model, by spending years in his garage, learning the ins and outs of forcing those beautiful oils from the trichomes in the cleanest way possible. While extraction as a process isn’t new, citizen scientists like Troy are developing new, and surprising applications and not just with cannabinoids. Two thirds through this interview Troy talks about a revolutionary citrus peel extract that appears to relieve arthritis pain. Knowing that citrus contains high concentrations of the anti-inflammatory terpene limonene, Troy made his own grapefruit peel concentrate and then rubbed some on the stiff ankles of his 80-something year old mother. In ten minutes her pain was gone, he recalls. She continued applying it, once every few days at first, then once a week, then once a month, and now barely needs it. It seems to have relieved the condition as well as the pain. “That was what I was hoping but not what I was expecting,” says Troy. “It’s crazy how good it is.” To learn more about the citrus peel extract, go here.To learn more about extraction in generalTroy recommends these resources.extractcrafter.com/skunkpharmresearch.com/extractcraft.com/fuckcombustion.comSPECIAL OFFER If you would like a chance to sample my favorite edibles, listen to Episode 107.

You can't buy them, but this podcast will tell you how to get your own supply and/or make them yourself--recipe below. One thing that has always impressed me about the world of “higher order plants” are the citizen scientists who defy the law, societal norms, and the limits of their own knowledge to experiment with different ways of tweaking the plant to their own ends. They’re farmers and formulators, bakers and makers, but they share an abiding curiosity and dedication to craft. I was introduced to one such citizen scientist earlier this year, and his journey into high-potency and highly delicious edibles was so impressive I invited him onto the podcast. Chris Bugbee describes himself on his Twitter bio as a “cause-driven communications pro, print hound/news junkie, husband, dad to 3 daughters.” Shortly after California legalized he decided that too many of the edibles flooding the market were overpriced and under dosed, so he began to grow his own plants and find an extraction method to minimize the bitter taste of cannabis oils, and create his own cannafections that he calls Ginja Snaps and distributes through the Nightkitchen Bakery.But here’s the kicker: Chris doesn’t sell the Ginja Snaps. He gives them away to a small group of supporters who send him a modest contribution when they're ready for a refill. He does it this way because, as he puts it, "this is a mitzvah, not a business." (Mitzvah is Hebrew for a good deed).Whether you consider cannabis a medicine, sacrament or euphoriant, it has always been something to share. To that end Chris has generously extended an invitation to 20 Brave New Weed listeners to join the private Night Kitchen Bakery mailing list. Listeners, this a truly special offer to a limited number of people for a limited time. To learn how to join his private list and if you are curious to try what I judge to be the best, most dynamic edibles, follow the instructions at the end of the episode! And read below this ad to get Chris's recipe.Meanwhile, if you’d like to learn more about infusion and/or extraction (the latter is the slightly expensive but much more efficient method) Chris recommends this comparison-based resource. And if you’re interested in trying Chris’s Ginja Snap recipe on your own, here it is. Chewy Ganja Ginger Snap (180-200 cookies)This recipe, originally from the August 18, 2014 issue of High Times, served as the starting point in the evolution of the Ginja Snap. We are currently working on the 37th iteration of the recipe since our first effort to create a cookie that is as expeditious as it is delicious. Along the way we’ve played with various combinations of different sugars (castor, demerara, dark brown sugar, date sugar, coconut sugar), different kinds of molasses, added nutmeg and allspice to the ingredient list, swapped MCT coconut oil for butter, and increased the amount of crystallized ginger to 11 oz. One of our goals from the outset was to keep the cookie size small and the potency high, around 25mg THC per cookie. We began using ½ tablespoon (25mm) scoop to keep the size uniform and the dosage per cookie consistent. We’ve also experimented with efforts to increase the bioavailability of the ingredients by adding additional egg yolks or sunflower lecithin.Because potency is a goal, the Night Kitchen Bakery uses only flower instead of trim. We began by infusing 2 cups of flower in 1 cup of oil. Over the last year, we’ve switched from infusion to extraction, in which food grade ethanol is used as a solvent to extract THC and other cannabinoids more efficiently and completely than infusion. Ingredients4.5 cups all-purpose flour2 tsp baking soda1 tbsp ground ginger1.5 tsp ground cinnamon1 tsp ground cloves1.5 tsp salt1 cup cannabutter (melted) or oil1/2 cup unsulfured molasses2 cups sugar, plus extra for rolling dough2 large eggs7 oz crystallized ginger, cut into small chunksPreparationPreheat oven to 325ºF.Combine the flour, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a medium bowl. Stir together with whisk to incorporate all spices evenly.In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cannabutter (or oil), molasses, and sugar. Cream the butter/sugar mixture until fluffy and smooth.Add the eggs one at a time and mix until fully incorporated. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.Add the flour mixture into the wet mix slowly, until almost fully incorporated, and then add the chunks of crystallized ginger. Mix until dough is nice and shiny.Roll dough into 25 balls and roll in white sugar. Press down slightly. Bake at 325ºF for 8 to 10 minutes, until the top of the cookie starts to crack slightly.Let cool on a rack and enjoy!

"I don’t take cannabis in social situations. I only take it by myself in a quiet, reflective space...Sometimes it leads me down blind alleys, but often it clarifies and heightens my reflections. I see it as a power plant."Many people who use substances say that they create a deeper connection with “god,” “nature” or their own “spiritual” selves. Yet most organized religions are averse to plant medicines including psilocybin, ayahuasca, peyote and cannabis. Christians call these entheogens (plants that when ingested produce higher states of consciousness) false gods and warn against them for a host of reasons, primarily because they don’t want adherents straying from the flock.Buddhists use different words but similarly proscribe intoxicants that lead users into states of “mindlessness” or “carelessness.” But as an intermittent traveler in spiritual circles I can assure you substance use among Western spiritual teachers is far more widespread than openly admitted. So many of them use psychedelics and cannabis, but maintain a well-guarded “conspiracy of silence,” as this week’s guest, Stephen Batchelor, puts it.Batchelor is an esteemed teacher, writer, artist, and Buddhist scholar, who is best known for his secular approach to Buddhism and his openness to using entheogens to deepen his own contemplative practices. At 18, he went to India, where he was ordained as a Buddhist monk in 1974. He traveled, first to Germany and then South Korea, where he left the Tibetan tradition to train in Zen Buddhism. But in 1985 he disrobed, married and moved to France, where he and his wife still live in a small village near Bordeaux. His work has centered around developing a more modern, universalist approach to Buddhism, one that integrates the truths of tradition with the needs of our time.“The bulk of Buddhist teachers set out on this path through psychedelics and cannabis in the 1960s and 70s,” Batchelor, 68, told me. “But Buddhism, for many reasons, is too trapped in its own history. It appears user friendly but scratch the surface and you’ll hit a bedrock of moralism. It’s heavily committed to certain dogmas that it won’t or can’t release.”If you are interested in Batchelor's secular approach to this religion, I recommend Buddhism Without Beliefs, Confession of a Buddhist Atheist, and his most recent, The Art of Solitude, which was written before COVID but helped me mightily during the darker days of lockdown and forced isolation. It’s my honor to have Stephen as a guest and my pleasure to share the conversation with you.This episode is sponsored by WONDERFEEL:Wonderfeel's next-generation wellness formulas are organic, tested and pure.

“As a nonviolent offender, my brother faced the ultimate consequences of what cannabis prohibition really does to families.”On June 15th, 2013 Jawara McIntosh, musician, cannabis activist, and son of reggae genius Peter Tosh, was pulled over on the New Jersey Turnpike, not because he was speeding but more likely because of his dreadlocks. The cops found sixty five pounds of marijuana in his car and locked him away in a county jail for six months. After being released on $200,000 bond, Jawara, who performed under the name Tosh 1, pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute and took a plea deal which landed him in Bergen County Jail in Hackensack, NJ, with a one-year sentence. On February 21st, 2017, just six months shy of his release date, Jawara, then 37, was attacked by another inmate. He sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that left him in a coma, unable to speak, move or care for himself for three agonizing years until his death, July 17, 2020. Like his dad and the rest of his family, Jawara was a Rastafarian who used cannabis as a religious sacrament.In honor of International Peter Tosh Day, which occurs on 420, Jawara’s sister, (and Tosh’s youngest daughter), Niambe McIntosh, joins us to tell the story of her brother’s death and how it spurred her into action on his behalf.What Niambe, who today heads the Peter Tosh Foundation and is a cannabis entrepreneur, failed to tell me in this interview was that her brother’s story bears an eerie resemblance to an incident that happened to her father. Back in 1978, a gang of 8 policemen saw Peter Tosh standing outside of a recording studio in Kingston, Jamaica with a joint in his hand. They beat him with Billy clubs, then locked him in jail. According to reports, his skull was shattered in several places, his ribs were broken, and his hands had been crushed. When Bob Marley visited his former Wailers’ bandmate in the hospital and saw the battered body, he wept. We’re bringing you this podcast in celebration of 420, 2021, as a reminder that despite the progress that the march toward legalization has sustained in the last years, the fight for justice and criminal justice reform is still far from over.
