​​CAP Action’s Akua Amaning joins Daniella and Jesse for a discussion about the inconsistent marijuana-related policies across the various levels of government and proposed federal legislation to combat this. In light of Sha’Carri Richardson’s suspension from the Olympics for cannabis use, Amaning explains how organizational policies have or have not changed following decriminalization and how this could create issues for Americans. Plus, Daniella and Jesse prepare for the Summer Olympics and recap the latest in the battles for DACA and voting rights.
