A conversation with Dr. Richard Miller about the politics behind the suppression of psychedelic medicines. Plus a news segment about Net Neutrality.

 

California has legalized recreational use of marijuana. The law went into effect January 1st, 2018. Meanwhile, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has recently stated that he is rescinding the Cole Memo which had protected states from federal interference regarding cannabis laws. 

Dr. Richard Miller talks with me about the history of marijuana suppression and the suppression of other psychedelic medicines and the harm this oppression has caused. His latest book is Psychedelic Medicine: The Healing Powers of LSD, MDMA, Psilocybin, and Ayahuasca.

Dr. Richard Miller has been a clinical psychologist for more than 50 years. He is host of the syndicated talk radio show, Mind, Body, Health & Politics.  He has been on the faculty at the University of Michigan and Stanford University. He was an advisor on the President’s commission on mental health, a founding board member of the Gestalt Institute of San Francisco, and a member of the national board of directors for the Marijuana Policy Project.

Also, web developer, Timothy Michel, explains the FCC's decision to throttle Net Neutrality, how this will change the way we use the net, and what action Congress can take before February 15th to reverse this decision.

Interview with Miller starts at 10:05.
