It’s Marijuana Week on BTR!

On today’s show, we sit down with Christopher Petrella and Alex Freidmann about their campaign to bring back the private prison information act before Congress for a vote.

And later, contributing writer of High Times Magazine Mark Miller talks future business models for marijuana distributors.

Today’s spoken word segments feature the talents of Jackie Hill.

If you’d like to submit a poem to be featured on the air, please send us an mp3 and the text of the poem to thirdeyeweekly dot gmail dot com. Just keep sound quality and next week’s theme (Danger Week!) in mind.
