How Is Legal Cannabis Working Out in California? – Klepper Podcast

Jordan chats with producer Erica Matson and writer Russ Armstrong about the web of enterpreneurs, regulations and history involved in California’s legal …


  1. I loved that weed is legal and I voted for its legalization. However this is just a bunch of lame liberals glorifying the gutter. Making a weed business license a S.J.W. issue is absurd. Just issue them in a first come first serve basis. That would actually be fair to everyone..

  2. The cannabis business has always been booming here in California. The only difference is now I can go out to a dispensary and get some for a slightly higher price. You don’t even need to go to a dispensary because there’s so many experienced growers that not only deliver but charge way less. I only ever go if I want some neat edibles

  3. So, our town had our first 4:20 festival this past year. Most of the money went towards fixing the roads,helping the police with ACTUAL problems like solving cold cases and actual drugs like meth&cocaine&pills,and they also raised enough money to tear down, clean up, and rebuild our park. Those are just the things that we KNOW OF! I don't smoke weed, personally, bc of my extreme anxiety issues BUT I'm a huge advocate for it because my brother is schizophrenic and has huge anger issues but when he's got weed&he's high- he's perfectly normal and functioning. I see ZERO reasons for it being illegal. You can't overdose on it. It's impossible. The benefits outweigh any of the risks, if there are any. And all of the people that are soooo against weed need to seriously just stfu,sit down, and smoke a joint, maybe get laid…. who knows? Their lives may change🤷‍♀️😊😉😎

  4. Fuck Compton fuck Oakland who gives a shit big fucking deal that they smoke weed there big fucking deal shut the fuk up a pack a bowl and go home

  5. Actually you know what these dumb shitz are making me want to quit I just quit weed I've been smoking for 25 years I buy just quit cuz of this dumb s*** show

  6. This show and these people and this monologue or whatever is the reason why I voted no to legalize weed these people are idiots I would never smoke weed with these fools there Geeks that chick loves black dudes she's desperate to get in their pants more than you would ever believe she wakes up every morning praise that some black guy will open the door for her cook food for her and do everything for her but you got to be black f*** these idiots smoking by myself right now never going to smoke with fools I don't care what political idiotic Chrissy you guys are you make weed smokers look stupid

  7. Hello course they voted no selling weed in Compton they already have shitloads of weed sellers already there why would they want to put themselves out of business hello

  8. It seems very strange to me that drugs are being legalized, but Reproductive Rights are being taken away….

  9. Let people buy, sell, trade weed in an open market! From the farmers markets, coops, to corporations! Let consumers choose!
    Get cannabis off the schedule 1 drugs – weed never killed anyone by overdose.

  10. You needed more voices in this discussion. You can't make change in a community without involvement of the members of the affected community

  11. Hi, I work for a lender company and we fund start – ups and cannabis businesses, if you guys are serious in starting a business in the cannabis world, I can help out! Only in USA. Thank you & Have a nice day!

  12. Anyone else catch how annoyed the cannabis enthusiast was when the guy was talking about shatter as having "glass shards"??

  13. I just wanna point out that, regardless of what is in the "Celebratory blunt", a $450 price tag is a massive scam.
    Sounds like a good time, though.

  14. I think the added temporary interneuronal synapse connections thanks to marijuana and especially the psychedelics are literal wiring upgrades to our brains that can be made permanent through normal neuroplasticity learning. These new connections give parts of our brains new access to both our current sensory perceptions, heightening them and making us more appreciative of everything we experience, while also giving parts of our brains new access to memories making even our memories heightened with literally new mental perspectives on them. It’s like a physical empathy, giving our brains the ability to have new and more diverse perspectives on everything, past and present.

    These substances widely have the reputation as creativity-enhancers but I think actually they’re empathy-enhancers creating new perspectives, giving artists greater ability to imagine how a wider audience will perceive their work while it’s in progress, making it more creative as a result.

    Legalize, release, expunge and give industry advantages to the minorities most harmed.

  15. I love when people use any reason they can to justify their addiction like this 18 yr old chick is doing on this video pretending to be some sort of weed expert lol

  16. I beg you please continue with podcasting. I understand the show just ended and CC produces the podcasting as well, but I just wanna hear what Jordan has to say about this climate. Please don't disappear like when The Opposition ended. You are just too good and I have so much respect for what you do.

  17. By far my favorite show Jordan's done on his solo tour especially with these podcasts.

    Really hope there's a season 2!

  18. Case against dispensaries:
    'We can't have cannabis dispensaries in this neighborhood! It just wouldn't fit in with our drug-free community surrounded by liquor stores and any convenience store that sells tobacco.'

  19. Too bad that shit doesn't apply here in Canada…
    Here if you ever got caught with cannabis or were part of the black/open market, you are BANNED from working in any aspect of the cannabis industry.
    If you were lucky enough to be caught with only a small amount of cannabis and you get a pardon, congratulations that doesn't mean shit and is not an expungement and will not guarantee the Cannabis/Liqour/Tobacco board will clear you for QCW.

  20. Cannabis is a sacrament. It is a medicine. Cannabis balances the mind and the soul. It should be legal for anyone to grow and smoke as much as they want. Free your mind. Educate yourself. #legalizeit

  21. See, when you include faith based arguments in a discussion you should just automatically be told "that's not good enough, please find some valid social and/or cultural based arguments and come back."

  22. Nixon was the POTUS who bumped up pot to a schedule 1 drug. Reagan was the 1st was on drugs/just say no POTUS. Get your cannibis crowd in line!

  23. smoking weed is my constitutional right….to pursue happiness and religious freedom…therefore not illegal

  24. YES! YES! It's been killing me that I don't hear others bring up the racist creation of 'marijuana'. So I, too, have been exclusively calling cannabis, 'cannabis'.

  25. Whether you like it or not, the black market I guarantee will be prevalent until we lose the "state store" idea that alcohol has had in strict dumb states that don't actually believe freedom for their citizens or businesses; they believe in sin taxes. It's prohibition unwinding itself just like back in history with alcohol. You simply can't tax people 20-40% and expect them to not be financially motivated to find a cheaper option when the product is the same. It's why people have for decades gone across state lines for cheap booze and cheap prescription drugs. This is game theory in action.

  26. Can you smoke cannabis in public in CA? Not in WA.
    The illusion of exclusion (segregation) did cause many black-owned businesses to fail…the road to hell…

  27. Denver is the place to go. Its the a very friendly market to both buyers and taxers. Its really a weed shop every corner. They may even outnumber 7-11s.

  28. The United States legalized "Marihuana" to make equipment for the military during World War II:

    The legalization of "Marihuana" today will replace fossil fuels and end deforestation, stopping climate change:
    There is legislation pending to end US Federal Cannabis prohibition:
    Cannabis Sativa is our past and our future.

  29. If no herb stores then no alcohol stores either , that is assuming you actually care about the community

  30. My dvr keeps being screwy when recording your show :/ Only ep1 recorded properly. Each other is just The Office rerun.

  31. When the claim for the word "marijuana" should not be used due to the manufacturing of the word to make it appear foreign. She then goes to say it's okay to still say it, well kind of…if you that is who you want to be.

    Jordan Klepper that was the one sentence that stopped me in my tracks. Tons of people use the word marijuana because that is what a lot of people have called it growing up. Not everyone knows the history behind the word so to have that type of viewpoint on the matter that "people that want to continue demeaning minorities will use this word". Whether you are aware of it or not, in this situation trying to stand up for what is right to stop discrimination is actually discrimination in its own right.
