Speaker 1: Michael Bowman and Bethany more. Michael Bowman joins us to discuss hamp. We discussed a little history going back to our founding fathers and then we have the conversation around the plants, non recreational offerings of food, fiber, fuel, Pharma to name a few. Michael discusses the fact that he's a farmer by birth, so he understands just how this crop could help the farmers of American. We discuss just what role could be in the greater American economy and society if we in fact let it save the world, but Bethany more. Our friend from the NCIA first joins us to discuss her two new books of poetry. She certainly covers the base issues of humanity and as you'll learn, she's inappropriate guests for an episode that goes up on Halloween. Welcome to cannabis economy. I'm your host Seth Adler. Check us out on social with the handicapped economy. That's the word economy. Michael Bowman proceeded by Bethany.

Speaker 3: Terrible. Just too much going on. I need a personal personal assistant here.
Speaker 2: That's right. It's a personal assistant, personal trainer, personal, uh, life coach, whatever it may be. Bethany, more of the National Cannabis Industry Association. Welcome. Thank you. This is the first kind of extra curricular interview that we've done. And what I mean by that is that you've just published a couple of a books, I guess is what should call them because they are of poetry and you and I talked about it. I said, well, when they get published, we have to talk about it on the podcast. So, so here we are.
Speaker 3: I'm so excited. Thank you for joining me.
Speaker 2: Yeah, well you're welcome. So let's do I guess the second one first, right? Because that's what's happening. That's, that is what happened.
Speaker 3: Sure. The second one is titled Whether Magic, a collection of poetry in witchcraft and it's a collection of poems basically over the last 15 years. I'm in my mid twenties of writing and I took the good ones and, and uh, think they're arranged quite nicely, I think with a lot of themes of nature, volcanoes, wildfires, things like that.
Speaker 2: So weather is, is raindrop weather, snow and wind. You got it. Okay. And whether magic, because weather is magical,
Speaker 3: uh, whether magic because it sits with the themes. I'm an imagery of the ponds as I mentioned, and as a person who practices paganism or Wicca or witchcraft or whatever you'd like to call it. Um, it's, it's a strong theme in my writing so you can see that in just about every poem that I've written and it just seemed like a good title.
