Dale Sky Jones on San Francisco Experience Podcast

Oct 11, 2022 | Blog

Oaksterdam University Executive Chancellor Dale Sky Jones appeared on the San Francisco Experience Podcast on Tuesday, Oct. 10. Hosted by Jim Herlihy, the news commentary podcast serves listeners in more than 65 countries. Its mission is to offer fact-based analysis from a California/Silicon Valley perspective, featuring newsmakers, thought leaders, and authors as guests.

During her appearance, Dale talked about America’s first cannabis college, medical cannabis, and President Biden’s action on Oct. 6, to pardon all people convicted of simple marijuana possession under federal law, and review marijuana’s classification as a Schedule I drug at the federal level.

Dale acknowledged Biden’s move was a step in the right direction. However, there’s still work to be done, especially with Brittney Griner bringing attention to the hypocrisy of America’s approach to cannabis.

“There’s no doubt we are at a turning point, and it’s long overdue … President Biden, I appreciate that he’s sticking to his campaign promises within the first two years. I also feel that we owe a nod to Brittney Griner who is still a prisoner of war, in my humble opinion, in Russia over this issue and Biden was at risk of being a hypocrite demanding that Putin release Brittney Griner for simple possession when we still hold so many Americans in prison and in jail for the same thing. So Biden needed to get his story straight and make sure that he was doing what he was asking other world leaders to do.

“I just wanted to acknowledge and to remind people that Brittney Griner is still in this situation and so are a lot of Americans here in the United States in terrible conditions, and to pretend that that wouldn’t have happened to a black woman in America and already hasn’t is hypocritical at its finest and at its worst, it’s a tragedy.” — Dale Sky Jones
