How the legalization of marijuana is affecting America is the subject of a new podcast, The Potcast, debuting today from the Reno Gazette Journal and the USA TODAY NETWORK.
Hosted by RGJ marijuana reporter Jenny Kane, the show tells the stories of how people’s lives, careers and dreams are changing as America shifts its view about the controversial drug.
Did you know that drug dogs might not be trained to sniff for the smell of weed anymore? Or, did you know that there’s a battle brewing about whether professional athletes can be sponsored by marijuana companies? Those are some of the issues discussed by the show’s guests, including Carson City Sheriff Kenny Furlong, a professional mountain biker, a cannabis chef searching for her Michelin star, a rural sheriff, pot-farm workers and many others.
