Left & The Law: what's the risk in releasing Oregon's low-risk offenders?

program date: 
Mon, 10/15/2012

 Continuing the Left and the Law, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedecker talk about reactions to the release of 850 low-risk offenders from Oregon State Prisons. They talk about Govenor Kitzhaber's Public Safety Commission's recommendation, how the risk of these offenders is assessed, crime-victim advocates criticisms, and whether tinkering with the criminal justice system puts the public at risk. Mike offers suggestions to counter the fear of criminal justice reform leading to more crime.

Clint Werner discusses his book: Marijuana, Gateway to Health--how Cannabis protects us from disease

The Radiozine welcomes Clint Werner, author of Marijuana, Gateway to Health. In this recently published book, Werner presents the science that supports cannabis as a potent medicine in treating cancer, Alzheimer's, and other diseases. He also takes a hard look at the history and politics behind the criminalization of marijuana. Werner's information is especially pertinent this fall, as Oregonians consider voting on Measure 80 and whether to legalize and regulate marijuana. Hosted by Stephanie Potter.

"This book should be required reading for all medical professionals, elected officials, and everyone interested in health and wellness."  --Andrew Weil, M.D.
