Talk radio anchor Jo Kwon continues to explore the emerging legal cannabis industry in California in her podcast Jo Kwon Reporting, with a new episode that tackles the challenges and potential advantages that come with handling cannabis cases in California courts.
“In general, a lot of defense attorneys would say confusion is their ally,” says Roger Diamond, a defense attorney Kwon interviews for her show.
Kwon also chats with a prosecutor, who discusses the problem of not having an accepted way to measure cannabis-impaired driving and other issues attorneys are facing.
“In drug cases, there’s no per se limit — especially for marijuana, which is what the bigger issue is because that’s what we’re seeing more of,” says Sarika Kim, a Los Angeles deputy district attorney.
The podcast is a passion project for Kwon, who works by day at Los Angeles talk radio station KFI AM 640.
