About The Madeleine Brand Show
The Madeleine Brand Show, exclusively on 89.3 KPCC, 89.1 KUOR and 90.3 KVLA, captures the spirit of the West in a conversational, informal, witty style and examines the cultural issues people are buzzing about. Hosted by Madeleine Brand, and produced by Kristen Muller, Steve Proffitt and Sanden Totten, the show includes regular segments like Weird L.A. - highlighting a person, place or thing that you've never heard about, but probably should; Parenting on the Edge - a weekly discussion on the challenges and pitfalls of raising kids; as well as regular contributors like Luke Burbank, Rico Gagliano, Brendan Newnam and John Moe to help dissect culture, technology and business news.
The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010. It's better known as Prop 19, and probably the most controversial measure on the November ballot. And certainly the best known.
A Field poll last month showed more than 84 percent of voters surveyed identified Prop 19 as the marijuana initiative. Less clear, perhaps, is exactly what the initiative will do, and how it will do it. Steve Proffitt joins Madeleine with an explainer on Prop 19.
Marijuana causes more misdemeanor arrests than felony arrests in California (1990-2008).
