I live in Colorado and know a bit about cannabis. Ask me anything:

Listening to the show on podcast, I heard some questions and some points that were a little off. 

For instance, the black market for cannabis in CO is still active and product sourced there is 20-50% cheaper than in the retail system.  Even with this, the legal retail chains are killing it with revenue.

Legalization has also enabled a booming free market for specialization of the product.  When I was a kid, "weed" meant a random brick of dried up sticks and seeds.  This week I went to a retail shop and purchased a CO2 extracted hash oil specifically bred for high CBD cannabinol content.  Ideal for pain management with a lessened THC psychoactive component.

This is genuine medicine and alleviates arthritis pain better than Advil/NSAID's with very little mental alteration. 

Very cool stuff and a shining example of how liberty improves quality of life and stimulates innovation.

I'd love to answer any other questions you have. Ask me anything :)
