For too long patients in Massachusetts have been priced out of medical cannabis dispensaries. Following up on our last month of podcasts we ask listeners to call in. Here are their messages. We hear from disabled and working patients in Massachusetts who offer some possible solutions as well. And a single mom that pays too much for her child’s certifications. With Sherri Tutkus, RN of GreenNurse Group, Donna Hackett, Grant Smith, Peter Bernard, Joanna Varner, Johnny Sim, Heidi Lilley, and many more. With Michael L Malta opening from 2010 showing us how little has changed since then. Expect future coverage lots more on this issue. Subscribe and rate us on iTunes! How can we have social equity when we aren’t talking about ever truly helping patients on low incomes in Massachusetts? Veterans, homeless, recovering addicts, disabled, on social security or disability, working poor many of them who are POC, LGBTQ, patients often working in poverty and in pain who can’t afford to pay a doctor to get certified every 10 months? Social equity means nothing if patients don’t get affordable medication. Nobody in power in Massachusetts is talking about this but that’s all we are hearing about from patients.
Haverhill residents showed their support for our standout of Marc's Deli over the establishment's lawsuit which seeks to bar a dispensary from opening downtown. Contact your Haverhill City Council and plan to attend June 18th at 7pm, the special permit hearing for Stem at Haverhill City Hall!

Nick Smart, CEO of CannaCon says some crazy shit. He’s not a fan of helping those who were disproportionally harmed by the war on cannabis (because he has money and opportunity by birth and others do not), nor does he support medical cannabis for PTSD, anxiety or back pain. He tells patients to stop being “p:@@-;@”. Warning: This episode features foul explicit language from CannaCon’a Nick Smart. Smart did not return our request for comment.
An interview with Peter Bernard, Executive Director of Massachusetts Growers Advocacy Council, on why he and other patients plan to smoke up outside Thursday night’s Stanley Cup Boston Bruins game at TD Bank Garden.

Ricardo Arroyo for Boston City Council on The Young Jurks, 1/5/2019.
Ricardo Arroyo, candidate for Boston City Council in District 5 (Hyde Park, Mattapan, and Roslindale), is the son of the first Latino elected to the Council, Felix D. Arroyo and brother of Felix G. Arroyo, who has also served on the very same Council.
Interviewing Arroyo on my Disrupt Boston show, The Young Jurks, the 31 year old noted, “I come from a pretty great family.” and it goes beyond just the elected positions, his mother is a school teacher and his sister is employed as a Boston Public Schools educator. Another Arroyo brother, also came up in our discussion, Ernesto AKA Eroc, who I’ve known for decades, being a huge fan of his revolutionary hip hop, The Foundation Movement.
Arroyo until his recent campaign announcement, had been serving as a public defender attorney for the Committee for Public Counsel Services.
Unlike the incumbent District 5 Councilor Tim McCarthy, Arroyo supported the 2016 cannabis legalization initiative.
What follows are quotes from the broadcast.
Why are you running for City Council?
“The job I had as a public defender for me it was a calling…Being a public defender is so much of why I’m running. In the work that I did, we were dealing with the vast majority of clients having mental illness, dealing with addiction, with housing instability, and sometimes all three. And people who are generally not receiving the services they need. One of the things I loved about the job is we didn’t have to try to figure out where our next check was coming from, we were salaried, so I could help beyond the criminal cases, to help them with housing and getting treatment. Doing that work I would find the system could make a difference in their lives. I would make this impact on an individual basis... but every day at court there were new people showing up, everyday there is somebody else there so I could help one person but I couldn’t resolve the greater issues that are bringing people there, not without stepping outside of that role.”
The Young Jurks December 2018 interview with MA State Rep Nika Elugardo.
Subscribe to MIDNIGHT MASS
Massachusetts State Rep Elect Nika Elugardo has first hand knowledge of the dangerous nature of illegal drug markets. Her dad was a dealer. This was one of many interesting revelations in my recent sit down with Elugardo on my Disrupt Boston show, “The Young Jurks”.
How do we ensure that the spirit of our Mass cannabis law is implemented in regards to helping those most disproportionately harmed?
“What do we do in the cannabis area? So yes we can have funds, because if we simply say we are going to make a preference for those who have been disproportionately held back by the very system and we don’t provide any funds for that then it’s not going to be possible to overcome it.”
The Young Jurks go LIVE with MA Cannabis Control Commissioner Shaleen Title, Somerville Alderman Ben Ewen-Campen, & Manisha Bewtra, Melrose Alderman-At-Large, discussing cannabis zoning and how to ensure licenses for locals and those who have been disproportionally harmed by cannabis prohibition, hosted by Mike Crawford.

The Young Jurks, Saturdays, 6pm ET interview Boston City Councilor and Candidate for Mayor, Tito Jackson. https://digboston.com/let-me-make-this-distinction/ Are you still against the House marijuana omnibus bill? I believe what has happened in the state of Massachusetts has been a miscarriage of justice … The people, over 1.8 million of them, their voice actually should carry forward … If the folks at the State House wanted to actually legislate this, why didn’t they doggone legislate it? Why did the people have to put a ballot question forward to legalize, regulate, and tax adult use of cannabis? How would your Mayoral administration handle marijuana licensing? As mayor of the City of Boston I look forward to ensuring that shops are open, that they are expedited in their opening … Unlike our current mayor, let me make this distinction, Mayor Marty Walsh was absolutely categorically against the legalization, regulation, taxation of adult use of cannabis in the state of Massachusetts, and he stood on the side of the alcohol industry and he stood on the side of Governor Baker, opposing the people in the City of Boston, because resoundingly people in the City of Boston said this is the direction we should go … The reason why I did it? There has been a racist war on drugs for decades in this state. In 2008, possession of marijuana was legal, but if you were black between 2008 and 2016, you had a 330 percent higher chance of being arrested [for marijuana than white people] … I do have to quote Tupac right now: “Instead of a war on poverty, they have a war on drugs so the police can bother me” When it comes down to it, we have been wrong in this, and sadly Mayor Walsh was unwilling to state that the state had been wrong. The MassCann/NORML Boston Freedom Rally on the Common has sued the city six times in state court to get their permits, five times under the Menino administration and once with Mayor Walsh. What would you do as mayor to ensure that doesn’t have to occur again? I believe we should have a city government that is based on democracy, accountability, and transparency, and it should be scandal-free. The Freedom Rally, the folks that want to celebrate their right in the City of Boston should be able to come to the oldest public park in America. We would welcome you versus having to fight us. General Electric didn’t need to get a permit … Do you need a helipad for the Freedom Rally?

While she was monitoring 8chan's pro-Gamergate chanboard (/gg/), anonymous users posted sensitive personal information about her, including at least one post containing her address. Subsequently, Wu began receiving multiple, specific rape and death threats including her address, causing Wu to flee her home. These threats have been widely attributed to Gamergate supporters. In December Wu received e-mails at her corporate account that contained images of mutilated dogs from people who identified as Gamergate supporters, following the recent death of her dog, Crash. Along with Anita Sarkeesian and Zoë Quinn, Wu is frequently cited by the media as one of the targets of some GamerGate supporters' harassment of women in t

With Stephen Mandile of Veterans Alternative Healing, Inc. live in-studio discussing his meeting that never happened with Governor Charlie Baker. The Young Jurks also read a statement from Attorney Michael Cutler related to the use of Certified Nurse Practitioners to recommend medical marijuana by Canna Care Docs. G.L. c. 112, sec. 80I [https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXVI/Chapter112/Section80I] enables NPs to perform tasks under a doctor’s supervision generally, which would appear to include certifying patients under the MMJ statute (St. 2012, c. 369). BRN — the nurses' licensing agency, the Board of Registration in Nursing — enacted regulation 244 CMR sec. 4.06(3)(d), which does so explicitly. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf Still, the MMJ statute (at sec. 12&13) delegates only to DPH, the authority to issue regulations to implement the state MMJ law; DPH’s failure to adopt the BRN regulation (thus limiting MMJ certs to doctors, excluding NPs) appears to be the basis for BRM’s — the doctors’ licensing agency, the Board of Regulation in Medicine — persecution of at least one Canna Care Docs (CCD)-doctor. CCD’s doctor may have a defense based on sec. 80I, but BRM may persist in its jihad against MMJ doctors until both trial and appellate judges tell the BRM it is wrong (if the judges rule that sec. 80I and the BRN regulation trumps the failure of DPH to adopt a corresponding regulation allowing NPs to certify MMJ patients). Note, I do not represent CCD, nor its doctor(s)." Attorney Michael D. Cutler, Northampton and Boston MA Telephone: (617) 816-6056; Email: MichaelDCutler@Aim.com; Website: EvansCutler.com ----- And also a phone call from Segun Idowu, Boston Police Camera Action Team.

The Young Jurks, Saturdays, 6pm ET discuss the Mass Medical Board suspending the license of Dr John Nadolny of Canna Care Docs. With guests, Stephen Mandile of Veterans Alternative Healing; Beth Waterfall of Women Grow; Ellen Brown of Sinsemilla Seminars; and Donna Hackett, RI medical marijuana pioneer. http://facebook.com/theyoungjurks ----------------------- Quoting from Pursuant to Chapter 369 of the Acts of 2012 and M.G.L.c.112 ꬸ 801, CNP’s are authorized to issue written certifications of marijuana for medical use as provided pursuant to the mutually agreed upon guidelines between the CNP and the physician supervising the CNP’s prescriptive practice. http://www.mass.gov/eohhs/docs/dph/regs/244cmr004.pdf According to the board’s order in Nadolny’s case, he is currently the medical director of Canna Care Docs, a medical marijuana dispensary company with several locations. As of May 20, Nadolny, who also has privileges at Melrose-Wakefield Hospital and Lawrence Memorial Hospital, had issued 5,792 medical marijuana certificates and violated protocols on “multiple occasions,” the order said. Among the violations were failing to diagnose patients with a debilitating medical condition as required by law and delegating to nurse practitioners the authority to make such diagnoses. http://www.bostonglobe.com/metro/2016/05/26/two-doctors-suspended-for-violations-with-medical-marijuana-opiates/zeys0yqb8txcn4775ZISgL/story.html
