Marijuana is coming! In fact a dispensary is about to pop up on West Street in Annapolis in a few months! We thought we should talk about it with some experts, so please welcome Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong!
Well, maybe not! But we do have Caroline Phillips and Kevin Cranford with us today. Both are advocates for the legalization of marijuana and have been VERY vocal on the national scene in lobbying for the decriminalization and legalization for medical and recreational use.
In fact, the 2nd Annual National Cannabis Festival is about to take place at RFK Stadium in Washington on April 22nd and Caroline is the Founder & CEO of it!
We sat down on the rooftop at Metropolitan Kitchen &
Lounge to talk about the existing laws, the
coming laws, misconceptions, right-conceptions, and much more.
If you are looking to go to the National Cannabis Festival, understand it is NOT a "pot fest." It is an educational and advocacy festival. Yes, they will have music and food and it will be a good time; but expect to see cannabis related vendors, organizations, lawmakers, how to grown, and a special area where Marylanders can meet the growers, cultivators, and dispensers. Get your questions answered and basically learn more than we can cover in an hour here on The Maryland Crabs! Get your tickets at the link!
A special thanks to our sponsors this week including...Homestead Gardens and Union Jack's Annapolis!
Nourishment for this episode comes by way of Metropolitan Kitchen & Lounge on West Street. The rooftop is about to open and the lamb burger is as fine and tasty as it has always been!
