Rundown for June 23, 2017

 

State Marijuana Law  House lawmakers passed a bill the other night that will tax marijuana products at 28 percent. The rub is that it’s more than double the 12 percent tax rate of the Senate version and the House version allows government officials to ban marijuana shops from town. In this hot-topic debate, where do you stand on the issue? Does the excessive tax rate encourage more black market transactions? Call in with your opinions and be heard!

 

Dr. George on the Senate GOP Health Care Bill!  The Senate healthcare bill is now under negotiation and a 142-page proposal is out. There is disagreement amongst Republican senators like Paul and Cruz, and the democrats call it a “meaner” version of the House bill. Dr. Elaina George, a certified otolaryngologist and an outspoken advocate for repealing ObamaCare, joins Dan to discuss the Senate version and explains who benefits and who doesn’t. Call in with your questions and comments and join the conversation!

 

Did Johnny Depp Cross the Line?  The Hollywood actor made a provocative statement at a Britain festival saying, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” His attempts to amuse the crowd drew a response from The White House condemning his statement. He has apologized, but the damage is already done. Did Johnny go overboard? Call into NightSide with your take!
