Jody Wiser of Tax Fairness Oregon talks Measure 84 with Abe and Joe. And it's Fall Membership Drive!

The Estate Tax is one of the ways our society tries to discourage the establishment of a hereditary aristocracy. Naturally, would-be aristocrats want to do away with it.

Jody Wiser of Tax Fairness Oregon joins Abe and Joe to discuss Measure 84, the latest attempt to abolish the Estate Tax -- or, as it's known by those who want to get rid of it, the "Death Tax." Also -- give us your money! It's the annual KBOO Fall Membership Drive.

The economics of cannabis, and the of the politics of the war against it.

Author Doug Fine discusses his new book, Too High to Fail: Cannabis and the New Green Economic Revolution, with Ani and Lyn.

What would happen if cannabis was legalized?
