Method Man on Maino Presents Kitchen Talk on Fox Soul
CelebStoner Method Man primarily discusses his acting career in this interview with Maino, Georgie and Hala.
Hala: "Do you meditate?"
MM: "Meditate? Yeah. Everytime I smoke, I meditate."
Maino: "How High. Was you smoking real weed?"
MM: "At first, yeah. They was like, 'You guys are so spot-on in the morning, but after lunch you come back smelling different.'
Hala: "Have you ever gone a period without smoking at all?"
MM: "No. Even when I caught Corona I was still smoking."
Hala: "A lot of people are saying smoking is giving them anxiety."
MM: "No, it takes it away if anything... If it's not from Northern California, it's suspect in my mind. Northern Cali has the best weed, but Colorado is a close second."
Method Man: "Even when I caught Corona I was still smoking."
Peter Coyote on Planted with Sara Payan on Radio Misfits Podcast Network

• "I can't say I'm a part of the big marijuana revolution. In the '60s, I had all these friends who were really big dealers, burying semi-tractor trucks underground, putting grow lights in them, hanging them in trees and getting $5,000 a pound. Now, what I predicted would happen happened. Big companies have come in and they've used the law to wipe out all the small growers who'd been paying their mortgages and making a little spending money and then started realizing instead of 10 plants you could grow 100 plants or a thousand plants. Just like unregulated capitalism, the whole thing sort of metastisized into something that it wasn't in the '60s when I was there."
• "I sound much more conservative, but I'm high all the time on the natch. And when I'm not I can get myself back there. And so I don't need to take drugs really. Maybe some people do, I don't care. But they need to know they're putting a Band-Aid over a wound that they haven't healed."
• "There's nothing stopping you from growing a few plants and giving them away. You don't have to have a hundred acres of plants and permits and irrigation... If you think weed should be free, grow a little with your extra money and give it away. Set that as an example."
Peter Coyote: "I'm high all the time on the natch... I don't need to take drugs really."
• Ethan Nadelmann on MJ Today on MJ Today Media
Kris Krane interviews former Drug Policy Alliance executive director and current Psychoactive podcaster Ethan Nadelmann.
• "The continuing progress towards marijuana legalization - we now have 21 states that have legalized - [is] getting closer and closer. We're probably going to see Minnesota and a few other states do it legislatively. I'm happy with that progress. It's moving at a nice pace. There have been no major obstacles... I'm also happy to see the marijuana arrests come down. It has in fact dropped significantly."
• "When people say to me, 'It's such a mess,' I say, 'Sure, but what did you expect?' It's basically the first time in American history that we've taken a market that is illegal for almost a century and tried to convert it into a legal market. The only prior analogous experience is the repeal of alcohol prohibition, but that was essentially relegalizing a drug that had been legal 14, 15, 25 years, depending on where you lived, before. We're doing something that's a monumental historical thing. Of course, it's going to be a disaster. Of course it's going to be a mess. But it is going to sort itself out.
