Episode #659: Green Light
First Broadcast: 1/27/14
Repeated: 5/5/14; 3/2/15
The newly-legalized marijuana industry has been so successful in Colorado this year that High Times magazine is establishing an investment fund that will dole out up to $100 million dollars of capital to help cannabis businesses grow there. (Maybe this was enough to push Attorney General Eric Holder into finally creating some rules under which banks could do business with marijuana sellers without violating laws against money laundering.) We also recap on how one of the last acts of the Bloomberg administration was to ban the purchase (but not the usage) of cigarettes by people under age 21 in New York City. Will New York eventually follow Colorado's lead? Only time will tell, I guess.
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.

Read all about my letter, which was published in the New York Press on July 9, 1997.
Here you can view an op-ed I sent to the New York Times, which they never printed. Maybe I'll add an even larger essay in the future.
