Happy Mother's Day everyone! While Maria is celebrating Mother's Day with her family,  Valencia Mohammed, a former newspaper journalist, and myself will welcome guest Attorney Brandon L. Wyatt Esq., a decorated army combat solider and disabled veteran, and the National Policy Advisor of the Weed for Warriors Project (WFWP) . Weed For Warriors Project is the largest veteran advocacy group in the world actively trying to raise awareness about cannabis and its potential use as an alternative to many of the pharmaceuticals championed by not only the VA, but by almost all research driven hospitals like Johns Hopkins.

Weed For Warriors Project was started in the San Francisco Bay Area by an OEF United States Marine Corps Veteran who found relief from his service connected disabilities through medical marijuana and the fellowship of other like-minded Veterans within the cannabis community. With the help of organizations like SANTA CRUZ VETERANS ALLIANCE, Weed for Warriors Project is able to provide Veterans with medical marijuana information, a safe place to fellowship with other Veterans and safe access to free medicine with proof of service/ current medical recommendation.

Guest Biography: 

Attorney Brandon L. Wyatt Esq., a decorated army combat solider and disabled veteran, is the National Policy Advisor of the Weed for Warriors Project (WFWP). Weed for Warriors Project is the largest veteran advocacy group in the world actively trying to raise awareness about cannabis and its potential use as an alternative to many of the pharmaceuticals championed by not only the VA, but by almost all research driven hospitals like Johns Hopkins.

Brandon speaks not only for WFWP’s wonderful veteran community, but also as a disabled veteran himself, one who almost became a statistic.

Brandon L. Wyatt  is a decorated army combat solider and disabled veteran, and admitted to practice law in the state of Maryland. He received his Juris Doctorate from Howard University School of Law. Continuing the commitment to his clients, he is currently matriculating through the World Executive Masters of Business Administration program at the George Washington University – School of Business. He runs the Maryland Le Prade Cannabis Commission's Diversity Consultant team.  

Brandon's work embodies a commitment to service and an affinity for applying the law fairly to citizens to promote equity, fairness and fair dealing though out all aspects of the law.

Weed For Warriors Project was started in the San Francisco Bay Area by an OEF United States Marine Corps Veteran who found relief from his service connected disabilities through medical marijuana and the fellowship of other like-minded Veterans within the cannabis community. With the help of organizations like SANTA CRUZ VETERANS ALLIANCE, Weed for Warriors Project is able to provide Veterans with medical marijuana information, a safe place to fellowship with other Veterans and safe access to free medicine with proof of service/ current medical recommendation.

The vets, some of whom suffer from PTSD, say their symptoms are alleviated by cannabis — smoked, eaten, vaporized or in capsule form. And they say disabled vets are benefiting from the drug in states where it’s legal for residents, including D.C. They say the powerful pharmaceuticals being used to treat veterans’ disabilities including Opioids and Psychotropics are so dangerous, some of the drugs are labeled with suicide warnings.

Shadow Politics

Shadow Politics with U.S. Senator Michael D. Brown and Maria Sanchez
U.S. Senator Michael D. Brown

Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.

We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
