Miss a little on Stand Up Speak Up

Miss a little on "Stand Up Speak Up for Your Rights with Matt Martin," and you miss a lot.

I intend that my weekly talk radio show, "Stand Up, Speak Up for Your Rights, with Matt Martin," is a provocative, entertaining and useful talk radio show on the law. When you miss a little, you miss a lot. June 11, 2014, for example, we lampooned the RNC's statement to the press on the impact of legalized marijuana on the GOP's decision on whether Denver will play host to the 2016 Republication National Convention. The Pueblo Chieftain stated that the RNC Chair said "that logistics are more important than local marijuana laws. . . that he’s “not a big fan” of legal marijuana but that party officials aren’t considering it in their decision." On the show, I said one has to read between the lines as to what the RNC Chair really meant, and keep in mind that, despite legalization of marijuana use in Colorado, the GOP is STILL scouting out Denver as a possible site for the convention. Anyway,
one possible interpretation when one reads between the lines: "We are not boycotting Colorado because of legal marijuana; in fact, we can’t wait to get there." Another possible interpretation: "Legalized marijuana won’t affect our decision-making until we are actually in Colorado for the Convention and stoned out of our gourds." Like I said, miss a little, and you miss a lot.
