News Stories Mentioned in Episode 37:
Kenny Yuko, Furious MMJ Advocate
From Radio WOSU:
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko has been pushing for medical marijuana for years. He says officials from the state agency that oversees the medical marijuana program have told him none of the cultivators licensed by the state are growing marijuana right now and only one is close to starting the process.
“To say I was angry is an understatement,” Yuko says.
