NORML Show Live
If you’re not able to attend this weekend’s HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Cup in Los Angeles, here at The NORML Network we’ve got the next best thing. Tune in Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 7pm Pacific Time at http://live.norml.org for all the panels, presentations, interviews, and floor tours from LA Center Studios.
We’ll also be presenting our “It’s 4:20 Somewhere” raffles. At every 4:20 in America – Eastern, Central, Mountain, Pacific, Alaska, and Hawaii Time – we’ll be raffling off a prize package of NORML buttons, stickers, pins, books, DVDs, t-shirts, and backpacks for those in attendance. (That’s 1:20pm – 6:20pm Pacific.) For those of you watching online, follow our NORML Network Twitter feed @NORMLNet for your chance to win, too.

In addition to our mobile studio we’re displaying the first copies of the NORML Big Book of Marijuana Facts, and they’re getting great reviews.

For three years I have been the host of NORML’s official podcast, the NORML Daily Audio Stash, founded by longtime NORML activist Chris Goldstein two years before that. Back then, we were among a handful of people spreading the growing truth about cannabis on the internet.
Now we can bring you shows from all over the country and even one show from England – Cannabis Cure UK who’s fighting for medical marijuana access in Britain.
The Hot Box from Kalispell, Montana, just last month brought us eyewitness coverage of the latest DEA raids.
Cannabis States of America fights prohibition in the South from Florida, the toughest region of the country for reformers.
Green Central Station reports from Des Moines, Iowa, the state with statistically the fewest tokers in America.
Cannabis Times Radio takes us bi-coastal with reports from New York City and Los Angeles.
Drug Truth Network’s Cultural Baggage and Century of Lies from Houston interviews the top national figures in drug law reform.
The aforementioned Chris Goldstein’s FreedomisGreen covers the East Coast reform movement.
NORML SHOW LIVE’s co-host also has a show, The Ganja Jon Show, with the acerbic views of a young man who’s survived two transplants and loss of an eye while fighting for medical marijuana in Oregon.
We begin and end the week with music; The Viper Hour starts us off with a dose of reefer jazz and The Irie Island Hour takes us into the weekend with smooth reggae.
Shows are replayed throughout the morning. Weekends you can catch the entire lineup of new programs plus 24 hours of Daily Toker Tunes, the best podsafe cannabis music from all genres.
Between our coverage of the HIGH TIMES Medical Cannabis Awards in San Francisco, my trip to Idaho to help organize new NORML Chapters and to present on legalization at the public library, followed by my first two-week vacation in years, we’ve been off the internets for a while at NORML SHOW LIVE.
I’m glad to be back! We’re streaming new episodes of NORML SHOW LIVE every weekday at 4pm Eastern / 1pm Pacific at http://live.norml.org. Join us Tuesday afternoon for a discussion with Dale Sky Clare, the chancellor of Oaksterdam University and a spokesperson for Proposition 19, California’s initiative to legalize personal marijuana use and cultivation for all adults. The latest Field Poll shows Prop 19 losing 44%-48%, but the latest SurveyUSA Poll has it winning 50%-40%. Why the difference in the numbers and how is the Prop 19 campaign planning on wooing undecided voters? We’ll get the answers to those questions and more on tomorrow’s show.
On Wednesday we always visit with SUNY Albany drug and alcohol researcher, Dr. Mitch Earleywine, author of Understanding Marijuana and A Parent’s Guide to Marijuana, as well as the Ask Dr. Mitch column in HIGH TIMES Magazine. Join us in our chat room every Wednesday to ask your live questions (anonymously if you like) to be answered by one of the world’s leading experts on cannabis.
Plus you’ll get all of our Daily Toker Tunes, 420-friendly music from independent artists in all genres, the latest news headlines from Cannabis Karri, coverage of our special events from the road, and all my Radical Rants. Marijuana may not be addictive… but NORML SHOW LIVE sure is! Make us your daily break for the latest news and opinion from NORML.
