Women’s Spaces Radio Show on KBBF-FM 89.1 with host Elaine B. Holtz and guests Lynette Shaw “Godmother” of Medical Cannabis and Kathy Lehman of Veterans Cannabis Group,  broadcast on 8/15/16, has been uploaded to the web archives.


Featuring Guests:

1. Lynette Shaw, Godmother of Medical Cannabis

2. Kathy Lehman, Army Veteran, Member of the Veterans Cannabis Group, Marin


Guest 1.   Lynette Shaw describes her journey and mentors like Jack Herer, Dennes Peron and Dr. Tod Mikuriya, MD, whom she met on the way to the passing of Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act of 1996, and the further 18 years of perservering through federal DEA harrassment and economic deprivations until her Ninth Circuit Court victory in April 2016 for herself and all medical cannabis dispensaries. Lynette reminds us of the  HIV epidemic in this state and nation in the 1980s and 1990s and the arrests of HIV patients in hospital rooms just for possession of a couple of joints of marijuana to ease their pain and discomfort from the pharmaceuticals used to treat the auto-immune disease and its subsequent diseases from a compromised immune system. During all these years Lynette has helped military veterans handle their PTSD with cannabis and is co-founder with Veteran Army Sgt. Aaron Augustis of Veterans Cannabis Group in Marin County, California.


Guest 2.  Kathy Lehman joins Lynette in the studio to discuss why she is a member of the Veterans Cannabis Group and how cannabis has helped her as a Vietnam War Army veteran cope with PTSD, in spite of the prohibition of cannabis in the Veterans Administration.  Kathy also sheds light on how so many veterans became addicted to heroin in Vietnam, contracted Hepatitis and were given dishonorable discharges from the army, many becoming homeless.
