It pays to pay attention! That’s the resounding message from this weekend’s #HempStalk 2016 Event at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland, Oregon.

In today’s episode, Budtender Brielle and BFF Alex are joined by guests (and mainstage Hempstalk Presenters) John & Kim Novak from and Gina Garcia from The People for Medical Cannabis. The group discusses the current state of affairs of cannabis rule-making in the Pacific Northwest and calls upon you—the listener—to attend local town halls and visit your state legislature to defend medical cannabis and the cannabis entrepreneur.
