52. Buck Angel: From Porn Star to “Tranpa”
This week Alex and Donnell sit down with LGBTQ activist and cannabis entrepreneur Buck Angel to talk about the queer community's role in cannabis legalization, Buck's experience being the first trans man in LA to have hormone replacement therapy, and how he made his way from porn star to public figure. Plus, CBD is on the rise.
The difference between a truce and a stalemate can be minute, and nowhere in the wide world of weed is this more true than behind the redwood curtain, where legal growers and their associates allege the state Department of Fish and Wildlife is retaliating against them for having been illicit market forces.
In Sacramento, a proposed law threatening delivery services' ability to operate in cities without REC businesses failed at the legislative committee level. A lawsuit spearheaded by the California League of Cities remains a serious threat. Twenty-five municipalities are part of litigation which was filed a year ago in Fresno Superior Court.

The spouse of the Antelope Valley Diamond Collective's owner said that he paid Kern's Planning and Natural Resources Director $70,000 to approve the dispensary. The accuser went on to say that some of the 2010 bribe was passed on to a County Supervisor. The allegations are included in a lawsuit brought by a group of dispensary owners and were denied by the officials.
Southern California cannabis equity supporters became righteously unhinged last month upon catching reports that $5 million set to be the city's program budget would instead be diverted to cover LAPD cost overruns. It's no surprise then that a standing-room-only crowd trekked to L.A. City Hall last week to get clarity on where cannabis equity stands.
A bill initiated by the loss of a former Santee mayor's cancer-suffering son could spearhead the aboveboard arrival of marijuana in California hospitals. Senator Ben Hueso (D-San Diego) is taking the bill to Sacramento, where next week it will be introduced to the health committee.

If WeedWeek California can grossly paraphrase (and probably contradict) Earl Sweatshirt, don't close your eyes to what you can't imagine. For outdoor festivals season is upon us, and we know Coachella remains in the clutches of provincialism. And county parks are off limits for imbibers in Los Angeles.
Is heading north the best fresh-air and legal option for smokily engaging our cannabinoid system? Possibly. A new pilot program in S.F. is lighting the way for more than outdoor consumption: Festival cannabis sales.
Next Saturday will see celebrations in backyards and on beaches, from San Diego to Humboldt County. But only one has the enhanced sense of self to bill its festivities as "The Academy Awards of Weed."
Confidence goes well with parties, and it's easy to access when you have a virtual reality art park in which to make your party lit. The night is expected to be among the nation's top events on the twentieth night of April.
