The radio buzz… the top talk radio stories of the day…


Audio clip:

Pot ice cream? If Californias Prop 19 passes this November – should it be made legal?

“On paper – there’s reason to do it. And will it bring legions of new pot smokers to the product – because it’s now legal? I mean – an argument could now be made that maybe it’s better than them drinking alcohol.”

Texas based attorney with David, Goodman, & Madole – Clint David – speaking with Chip at KOGO in San Diego.

Opponents of the ice cream are concerned – should parents be held negligent if this ice cream is stored in the freezer RIGHT NEXT to the Ben & Jerry’s and their child mistakenly takes out the wrong container of ice cream?

Available in half pints – the “high cream” – contains the equivalent of about 8 joints.

Users claim to not taste the marijuana – but feel it’s effects.

One of the available flavors – “banabis foster”.

Buzzing on…

A year later – provisions of the new healthcare law begin to take effect – today.

What do these changes mean to the average person?

That question asked of Hanns Kuttner – by Dan at WOC in Davenport, IA.

“At the average person level – um – there probably aren’t going to be that many changes. These take effect for whenever your healthplan renewal comes up. So – for a lot of people – while the law takes effect today – it takes effect when your plan next change – which is usually for most people – January 1st.”

Kuttner is a former member of the White House Domestic Policy Staff with responsibility for health and social service programs under the Bush Administration and a Fellow at the Hudson Institute.

Big Insurers including Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna Inc, and others – plan to stop selling new child – only policies as soon as today – citing potentially huge and unexpected costs for insuring children.
