Shane McCormick: Hello everybody, this is Shane McCormick from cheaphomegrow.com interviewing David Mangone. He works for Americans for Safe Access. David, could you please tell me about yourself?

Dave Mangone: Sure. I’m the legislative counsel for American Americans for Safe Access, as you said. Americans for Safe Access is the nation’s largest non-profit dedicated to medical cannabis patients and advancing medical cannabis therapeutics and research. We have members in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, DC, Guam, as well as internationally, and what we really focus on doing is making sure that when states are passing laws, that they’re really patient-focused and when regulations are adopted, they’re really serving the interests of patients and not necessarily the interest of the industry. We’re very grass roots. We do a lot of lobbying, efforts both on the state level and the federal level, do a lot of research, making sure that dispensary and other facilities are as compliant as they can be when they’re state laws.

I’ve provided both YouTube and Soundcloud video/audio files.

Underneath those is a transcription of our conversation.
