Welcome to episode 20 of OC Speakly. This week we talk about Weed for Warriors and how the government specifically targets soldiers when they use and cultivate marijuana. Also, how new marijuana regulations, Measure BB and Proposition 64, affect Orange County. Staff writer Mary Carreon speaks with Kristoffer Lewandowski, Orange County chapter president of the Weed for Warriors Project, about how marijuana is beneficial to returning vets and to discuss his possible life sentence in Oklahoma for cultivating 6 marijuana plants.
