Matt

502 Hemp Business Director and Co-Owner

Matt became interested in CBD when his arthritis became so inhibiting it threatened to end his athletic career. After taking CBD he noticed a dramatic improvement, not only arthritic inflammation, but also muscle soreness and overall demeanor. The decreased inflammation allowed Matt to resume his athletic training and train longer than before. Observing these improvements, Matt knew that CBD was an industry to be involved in. He wanted to share this amazing product with as many people as possible. Once Dee Dee and Matt became acquainted they became the perfect match for a dream team operation.

Introduction

 

Matt:

Hi, I’m Matt.

 

Dee Dee:

And I’m Deee Dee. We are the hilarious outcome of opposing Brian’s sharing a mutual desire to share knowledge and positive thinking about him and cannabis.

 

Welcome

 

Matt:

We are here to tear down the walls built by big pharma and other big companies that seek to keep the human race and fear and divided.

 

Dee Dee:

We are here to shatter the myths about hemp and cannabis, and change the stigma of this amazing plant. Welcome to Hemp and Happiness with the Hemp Queen

 

Matt:

And Emperor

 

Dee Dee:

Podcasts. Join us as we venture into this misunderstood and the unknown. Hey, happy hamsters. Thank you for joining us again on our Hemp and Happiness podcast, where we talk about fun and exciting things and futuristic stuff and all kinds of coolness. Um, Matt and I usually have a good time doing these, so sometimes her, it’s kind of hard to figure out what the hell we want to talk about, but we can almost always think of

 

Political Pow Wow

 

Matt:

Something. I don’t think it’s hard to figure out what we about. I think it’s hard. It’s like going to the grocery store, you know what you need, but then when you get there, you’re like, What?

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah, where’s my list? And, um,

 

Matt:

Where’s

 

Dee Dee:

Melissa?

 

Matt:

The research can be kind of daunting

 

Dee Dee:

Sometimes,

 

Matt:

Which, speaking of which, I’ve gotten really into duck, duck go lately. Yeah. And they’re not sponsoring us, by the way. So if you hear me duck, duck go <laugh>. You can sponsor us. Shoot me an email. But, but we need some sponsors. Yes, we do. If you’re time, Well, no, because then we would, we couldn’t, we would get paid for it and we wouldn’t be able to say, We’re not getting paid to say this stuff.

 

Dee Dee:

Oh, true.

 

Matt:

But anyway, if you tired,

 

Dee Dee:

But I don’t, I getting paid for to say stuff. If

 

Matt:

You’re tired of cookies and tracking and all the bullshit algorithms that are served to you by

 

Dee Dee:

Facebook and Google Yeah. And our hate

 

Matt:

Facebook, then um, you might want to give duck dot go a try. I mean, that’s still, it’s a Microsoft product, right? Yeah. So it’s still owned by one of the big evils, but

 

Dee Dee:

Not as bad.

 

Matt:

It’s, it’s much better. Yeah, it is. And, and you, your searches are, Have you, have you ever noticed that, and I’ve noticed this in doing the research for this podcast, is like when you search for information mm-hmm. <affirmative>, it sends you down a rabbit hole. And often like Google will send you down a rabbit hole and often show you like the opposite of what you’re asking. Mm-hmm. <affirmative> to like, Oh, no, no, no, no, no,

 

Dee Dee:

No. That’s not what

 

Matt:

You, You don’t wanna know about, know the correlations of between opioids and, you know, the endo opioid system and the endo cannabinoid system. Why they di they’re

 

Dee Dee:

Different. And when they don’t think you’re that smart enough, if you

 

Matt:

Ask that question, if you search for things like that, you’ll hear about how, uh, how bad marijuana is.

 

Dee Dee:

Oh. And

 

Matt:

How bad you’ll, you’ll find some stuff on, on how op opiates, opioids, whatever you wanna call ’em, are bad. But you won’t find anything on why the, the endocannabinoid system is, is a whole different, you know, system than the Endo opioid system. And you know why the physical addiction, psychological addiction properties, you just won’t find it on Google. I mean, unless you go to page Right. 3017, they’re like, Okay, well we have to put it on there, so let’s put it on the very last page. So anyway, um,

 

Dee Dee:

Sorry about that. Well, you can hide.

 

Matt:

Hey, Josh jumped right there. We didn’t even get started. I’m down to Rabbit

 

Dee Dee:

Hole. Know You did you He does a lot. But you know, you can hide shit too. Like, there was this one CBD company, I’m not gonna name names, but they are from Kentucky. Um, and they, when in the beginning they were using, um, some really bad hemp and it had really high levels of lead in it. Well, they had a really good marketing team and they, they buried that, they buried that shit. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Um, and then of course they, you know, even when people would bring it up, well, no, no, you know, we’re just, Yeah. Blah, blah, blah. But yeah, you bad shit, you can get it buried. I mean, if you got the right, uh, people working on your marketing and the money, you can, you can bury all that bad shit. So it’s, it’s kind of bullshit.

 

Matt:

Just get, just get a new athletic jersey

 

Dee Dee:

<laugh> out.

 

Matt:

Yeah.

 

Dee Dee:

We’re not going there.

 

Matt:

Make a big, write a big check to, uh, to,

 

Dee Dee:

That’s always about writing

 

Matt:

A check. Know the Abuse Woman Foundation. Change, change your jersey number and you’re good. Good to go.

 

Dee Dee:

Wait, go in there anyway. No. So this episode, we kind of wanted to touch on the history that Biden made, uh, about a week or so, maybe two by now. Um, about the whole wanting to pardon all prior federal offenses for simple marijuana possession, which is huge. And he had, um, promised that in his campaign. So it looks like he’s finally trying to get it, um, get it going. Now, those are federal offenses. Most people are like, Well, what about state? And that’s pretty much left up to the governors of the state. And right now, obviously our current governor, which is Governor Basher, he is for it. Um, obviously he, you know, he, he commissioned the whole medical

 

Matt:

Cannabis. As long as you wear a mask,

 

Dee Dee:

Oh my God, we’re not going there. He tried to keep us safe. You sh sh we’re not going there. I like Governor Bash, met him in person and he was super nice. So I like him. The

 

Matt:

Super nice takes.

 

Dee Dee:

Well, yeah. He actually came to talk to me like I didn’t go talk to him. So

 

Matt:

Are you trying to say that because I’m an asshole? What I say is not relevant, but if I was super nice. That is exactly what I said. Oh, he’s super nice. Everything you said must be true.

 

Dee Dee:

I didn’t say it was all true.

 

Matt:

Super

 

Dee Dee:

Nice. But he was super nice. Anywho, it’s kind of up to him. Him,

 

Matt:

You know how I know he was lying?

 

Dee Dee:

Cause his lips were moving. Yeah, yeah. As

 

Matt:

A politician.

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah, buddy. That’s how all politicians are. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, There’s some good ones out there that aren’t just self-serving. Um,

 

Matt:

There’s, there’s nope, not one.

 

Dee Dee:

There’s a queue. Whatever.

 

Matt:

They’re all puppets.

 

Dee Dee:

They all, most of them have their own agenda. I’ll give you that.

 

Matt:

Um, No, no. It’s not their agenda. But,

 

Dee Dee:

But can I get back to this thing? It’s not their agenda. Moving, moving on, Mr. Go down the rabbit hole all the time. Um, we’re talking about I’m, and I’ll stop marijuana. But anyway, it, Now can Governor Bashier just suddenly wave his magic wand? No, but I think he could do an executive order.

 

Matt:

Did he have him, does he have a magic wand? Did you see this magic wand? Is it it super nice?

 

Dee Dee:

Oh, I’m just not even touching that. Anyway.

 

Matt:

Oh, you took it to the, you took it there. He

 

Dee Dee:

Did. You did. Anyway, moving past that, you know, we still have the legislative branch that has to make pretty much all the decisions in Kentucky and they get to vote and decide what’s best for Kentuckians. And so far they have not considered marijuana best for Kentuckians and have never called a bill to the Senate. Bourbon’s

 

Matt:

Best for Kentucky.

 

Dee Dee:

Right. It’s the healthy choice. Right? Oh, buddy. How many deaths from people have people died from alcohol, but not marijuana. But anyway, that’s another rabbit hole. You know, He, he also, um, told that, um, that marijuana is going to, they need to review how marijuana is scheduled in the drug code for the dea and how to hopefully, hopefully they’ll get that removed from the schedule one. And I don’t know if you know this, but marijuana didn’t even get on the schedule one list until 1972. Um, that was during the Nixon era. Mm-hmm. And it has later been reported that the Nixon campaign and his staffers told him that marijuana should not be on that schedule. And he went and did it. Did it. Anyway. So we are literally fighting something from a crooked politician from the seventies that put that on as a schedule one. And it just created the war on drugs. The war on racism, and has put a lot of, um, good people in jail over a dime bag or a joint. There are still people sitting in jail. And when you’ve got people sitting in jail for that, but you’ve got corporations selling it and making a shit ton of money for it. Come on. We need to pardon these people for simple medical, simple marijuana offenses. It’s ridiculous.

 

Matt:

Right. So what is a dime bag, by the

 

Dee Dee:

Way? What is a dime bag? Hmm. Oh, I know. You

 

Matt:

Know what I’m not doing. No, I was, No, no. I It’s a dime

 

Dee Dee:

Bag. I wanna know what bag of weed. I don’t even know how much is,

 

Matt:

Is it a bag that you get for a dime? No.

 

Dee Dee:

No. Why was it called a dime bag?

 

Matt:

Anyway, so I’ve asked this question Yeah. To many a connoisseur. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. And the most reasonable answer I’ve gotten is that when you rolled it up, you remember how they rolled up their tight little baggies back in the day? Yeah. Yep. Not that I ever did that shit. Right. Um, it would be the, about the, the, the big of a dime. And then you had the nickel bag.

 

Dee Dee:

I heard nickel bag. Is that why it’s called Nickelback nickel bag?

 

Matt:

Well, that’s a good question. I don’t know. But don’t you talk about nickel bag. I love nickel back. Everyone loves nickelback. I

 

Dee Dee:

Like them

 

Matt:

Too. It takes me right back to the strip club days. <laugh>,

 

Dee Dee:

I still seeing it anyway. Yeah. So <laugh>, so at Schedule one, do you know what that means? When it’s, this says schedule one drug,

 

Matt:

It means it’s first on the schedule <laugh>

 

Dee Dee:

Sure.

 

Matt:

Schedule one. It sounds serious.

 

Dee Dee:

Right? So it’s a drug or substance that, um, is defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use. And a high percentage for abuse. And I don’t know about you, but it is higher than, I believe it’s higher than, um, cracking coke. Uh,

 

Matt:

I don’t know about, about that. Yeah, Maybe Coke. But remember the Coke Crack thing was totally different.

 

Dee Dee:

They are, And they’re two technically two separate substances, even though it’s made from the same thing

 

Matt:

Because it’s, there’s like, there’s some weird rule where there, it’s like four times the sentencing if

 

Dee Dee:

It’s cracked. Oh, yes. And that was definitely the war on race for sure. Sure. There that was, that was a thing was disgusting. It’s still disgusting. Um, but you cannot tell me that heroin should be in the same category as marijuana. That is fucking insane. Excuse my language. But that’s insane. Marijuana does not have the same psychoactive addiction properties. None of that shit that heroin does. I mean, people are dying every day from heroin and fentanyl now. I mean, it’s just insane. People are not dying for marijuana use. Yeah. So how they can keep, they could even keep it on the same schedule is, is beyond me. And why they have for so long. I don’t understand that either. Um, now granted, that opens up a worm hole for the fda, cuz of course, again, that whole Food and Drug Administration, they need to be two separate administrations, period. One for food, one for drug. Because putting them together, that was the, that’s an oxymoron is ridiculous.

 

Matt:

Well, because I agree with you that, that the f fda, fda,

 

Dee Dee:

They make food with,

 

Matt:

Needs a gut check. It’s

 

Dee Dee:

Disgusting

 

Matt:

Because I mean, there’s, there’s,

 

Dee Dee:

They run too much of

 

Matt:

This country potential side effects death. Right. And it’s app FDA approved

 

Dee Dee:

And it’s approved. And heaven, freaking forbid you make one claim about CBD products,

 

Matt:

Literally death. I know. And I’m not talking or seizure. No, no, no. And I’m not talking about medication. I’m talking about things like food dies. Oh,

 

Dee Dee:

Well yeah, that too. Yeah. So for

 

Matt:

Real, we’re talking about an organization that will approve a food die, where one of the side effects is death.

 

Dee Dee:

Well, and the latest is that Tylenol is causing the autism in children.

 

Matt:

Hell, I need to see research on it.

 

Dee Dee:

Well, I would need to see it too, but hello. It’s okay to take it. I know, I know. Pregnant women that their doctors let them take. Um, z not Zerto. Uh oh. Not Xanax. Zoloft. Zoloft during pregnancy for anxiety and depression again.

 

Matt:

How

 

Dee Dee:

In the hell does that not harm your be child?

 

Matt:

I, I don’t know. But

 

Dee Dee:

Yet you can’t smoke

 

Matt:

Weed. But what, what doesn’t, what actually do, and I don’t know about any of that, but when I have been studying lately, and I hope to do a pub, we can do a podcast about this sometime in the future, is vaccines and autism. Mm. And the links there now. That’s some interesting stuff. It is. Um, and the way that the, it would not surprise me. Well, and here, here’s the thing is, and the reason why I haven’t really been excited about doing a podcast on it is I don’t have a solution yet. Mm. Because it’s like, do we need vaccines? Oh hell yes we do. Cuz we don’t have any alternative yet.

 

Dee Dee:

Right.

 

Matt:

Do we need to start looking for an alternative for a va for vaccines? I think Absolutely. Uh, I think that the side effects that are being caught, you’re basically,

 

Dee Dee:

Would that be Well

 

Matt:

You’re introducing RNA to your end of your, your system and a developmental child. Like a newborn child. You’re introducing RNA that will attach to, you know, their dna. Right. And you don’t think that that’s gonna, How

 

Dee Dee:

Do you know what you’re giving

 

Matt:

Them to Exactly. Yeah. I get it. I get it a little like that’s, that sketches me out. But I don’t, I want a solution. Like, and I want, I want to at least a solution that I could propose and I don’t have one yet. So Well, to be continued on that.

 

Dee Dee:

Okay. To be continued. For sure. What is the most abused drug in the United States?

 

Matt:

Alcohol.

 

Dee Dee:

No. One more guess.

 

Matt:

Mm. Uh,

 

Dee Dee:

I was actually not surprised when I read it.

 

Matt:

Oh

 

Dee Dee:

Gosh. You take it every day.

 

Matt:

I take it every day. You

 

Dee Dee:

Use it every day? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>

 

Matt:

Caffeine.

 

Dee Dee:

Yep. Yep.

 

Matt:

That I love some

 

Dee Dee:

Caffeine. 90% of the United States uses caffeine every day.

 

Matt:

Why wouldn’t they? It’s

 

Dee Dee:

And and it is class.

 

Matt:

It’s an awesome man. And

 

Dee Dee:

It’s classified as a psychoactive drug that can, it is alter moods and behavior. Cause

 

Matt:

It

 

Dee Dee:

Does 90% of Americans use it. Yes. And that’s legal. Yes,

 

Matt:

It’s legal. Yeah. Yes.

 

Dee Dee:

I mean, I know it’s my go-go juice <laugh>. I like it. I like to have my cup of coffee in the morning and my big big cup with my hazelnut creamer. My favorite.

 

Matt:

Give me some of that anhydrous boy

 

Dee Dee:

Let you lose. I don’t that shit up. Well, the hydrogenated oil ones. No, I use that natural

 

Matt:

Bliss. Oh, I do. And it’s terrible too.

 

Dee Dee:

I don’t use that cuz my, it hurts my stomach now. Anhd,

 

Matt:

Caffeine and some beta. All I spiders crawling on my face. Gross. I’m getting, I’m getting amp just talking about it. I need some CBD to take me down.

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah, you do. What, what’s the most abused prescription drug?

 

Matt:

Abused prescription drug. Diff definitely opioids.

 

Dee Dee:

It is, um, codeine and morphine as well. Yeah.

 

Matt:

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, which is, Well, they’re

 

Dee Dee:

Opioids. And do you know what, um, what like, generation is abusing the most?

 

Matt:

Boomers

 

Dee Dee:

No teens.

 

Matt:

Oh, really? Yeah. How

 

Dee Dee:

Are they getting meth? Prescription drugs? Well, gee, it starts with meth.

 

Matt:

It starts with meth.

 

Dee Dee:

Well, methamphetamines, What do you think Theall

 

Matt:

Is? Methamphetamines are high. We

 

Dee Dee:

Opioid, Not opioids. No, but codeine and, um, morphine, they’re opioids. Right. But, but it starts with the meth, the Adderall use. I think that’s where they

 

Matt:

Start. Oh, so it starts with 80, The a d D

 

Dee Dee:

Stuff. Yeah. It starts with that.

 

Matt:

So how do they get ahold of

 

Dee Dee:

It? I don’t know. Well, I mean, docs and stuff. And you can get Adderall off the street.

 

Matt:

No, but I mean, how do they get ahold opioids?

 

Dee Dee:

Well, this says prescription based. So

 

Matt:

From their parents or

 

Dee Dee:

Something? Maybe. Maybe. I don’t know. You gotta lock that shit up nowadays. Kids will try anything. I was too,

 

Matt:

I was scared. My son told me about that. The lean. What’s that? It’s, uh, so lean is is codeine cough medicine mixed with Sprite. And it’s the new hot thing with the kids. Codeine.

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah. Yeah. That’s the number one. That’s, that’s the prescription drug is the codeine where they’re getting the,

 

Matt:

Where are they getting that cough syrup

 

Dee Dee:

That’s coming from the doctors. You get a cough, you get cough syrup.

 

Matt:

Yeah, but I mean, you can’t get like, Oh, the cough is still here, Doc, can you fill, Sometimes

 

Dee Dee:

They do refills,

 

Matt:

Refill. I mean, eventually they’re gonna have to go underground for that

 

Dee Dee:

Or other docs. I don’t know. Interesting. But that’s interesting. I mean, that’s pretty sad. It’s called lean.

 

Matt:

I should do more research on that

 

Dee Dee:

Now. You should make sure you’re kid ain’t doing it

 

Matt:

Too. Oh, no, no, no. Trust me. Trust me.

 

Dee Dee:

Me Uhhuh. Yeah. My parents didn’t know I was smoking weed either when I was a teenager.

 

Matt:

Yes. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. Well, I have a, Well anyway. Yeah. I’m

 

Dee Dee:

Not gonna get You got a good kid.

 

Matt:

No, no. I’m still a good kid. He is a good kid. But I, I trust a good kid to not be a good kid. True. But I also have, would like to think I’ve got open, honest dialogue, which is, which is most important. And you know, it is conversation without, without, without fear of repercussion. Yeah. Yeah. You know, for certain circumstances. True. But true, True, true. Whatever you’re gonna do, you’re gonna

 

Dee Dee:

Make Well, yeah. And considering the business you’re in, I mean, if he had questions about marijuana, he should definitely just come see you. He listens to this podcast. Hope you listen to this. Jack <laugh>. Sorry, I’m calling you out, man. But I think you’re a good kid. Um, so I, Marijuana, the removal of it from, um, it is

 

Matt:

Schedule

 

Dee Dee:

One. Yeah. They have, it has been repeatedly proposed since 1972. Now, if it actually happens this year, I truly believe that, um, the 24 election will, will be different. And where it’s currently heading right now, I think that more than more than half of the United States is open to having marijuana. One declassified, reclassified, whatever the hell.

 

Matt:

I think more than half of the states have legalized it.

 

Dee Dee:

Yes. Uh, 37. Yeah. Yeah. And one form or another. And then what? You’ve got three territories that have as well. Um, and then Canada above and Mexico below. So it’s kind of insane. And,

 

Matt:

And where in Kentucky, <laugh>, what the hell are we doing? I

 

Dee Dee:

Know. What are we doing? Absolutely.

 

Matt:

It’s not a bad spot to be with the taxation issue, so. Mm.

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah. True. And you know, another fun fact over, let’s see, nearly half of the drug seizures in 21 were marijuana seizures.

 

Matt:

Really?

 

Dee Dee:

How insane is that? Because it’s still scheduled. They’re still, There’s season, it’s still federally illegal. Yeah. Well, you know, that’s the big thing that’s always been about the drugs too. Not only was a war on race, but also that’s how a lot of these departments made their

 

Matt:

Money. I just came up with a good

 

Dee Dee:

Joke. Seizing money, seizing cars, seizing homes that the search and seizure thing. Yeah. So, and the forfeitures it, it is ridiculous.

 

Matt:

So you want to hear the joke that I literally just thought of right now? Yes. Dad. So, so cop pulls you over and takes your bag of weed and says, I heard this helps with seizures,

 

Dee Dee:

<laugh>.

 

Matt:

I just thought of that just now on this podcast.

 

Dee Dee:

Please tell your cop friends.

 

Matt:

That’s

 

Dee Dee:

Gold. Please tell your cop friends. That’s gold. Please tell your cop friends about your <laugh> dork. All

 

Matt:

Such a dork. You made that happen. Yes, it is.

 

Dee Dee:

Yes. I know, I know. But really, I mean, that was kind of all I wanted to talk about today is the fact that hopefully we can get marijuana rescheduled, reclassified taken off the schedule one list because it is not as, uh, there, there are medical reasons, um, for marijuana. And people do use it for that purpose. Um, truly, I believe all use for medical marijuana, or marijuana in general is a medical reason. Um, whether it’s to make yourself

 

Matt:

Happy. So you have to define medical though. Exactly.

 

Dee Dee:

People use it for different

 

Matt:

Reasons. Medical implies that you, you have a condition that requires treatment.

 

Dee Dee:

Yeah. Most people have a condition

 

Matt:

That requires treatment. Well, the wellness that what we do, wellness would not be medical. It would be that word that I, that I found the last podcast. Oh yeah.

 

Dee Dee:

That I can’t remember. So maybe we could have one of those kind of stores, <laugh>. Yeah,

 

Matt:

That’s what I’m saying. Because I mean, Well, because cbd, THC can, as long as you’re not smoking it mm-hmm. <affirmative>, sorry, smokers. But bunk is bad. Um, you’re taking it for preventative purposes. Yep. So, which is not technically, if you’re taking it preventatively That is true. Is not medical.

 

Dee Dee:

That is true. That’s

 

Matt:

True. So, and the recreational thing. Yeah. Cause and I know this because I’ve studied, you know, the definition of medical. Yeah, that’s true. Um, which, you know, we, we don’t, cuz the, the medical automatically defaults to you have a preexisting condition. Mm-hmm.

 

Dee Dee:

<affirmative>,

 

Matt:

I think marijuana, cannabis, C, b, D, all that, everything hemp should be the consideration before you have the condition. I agree. Preventing the condition

 

Dee Dee:

From happening. I agree. I

 

Matt:

Agree. And then when you do have and

 

Dee Dee:

Don’t let it be when all else fails, then I’ll try it. Right. Don’t let that be, let that be the first thing you try instead of the last. Yeah. So I had a, I had a gentleman, well his wife come in the other day. He’s been suffering with migraines really badly. And of course they have tried everything. So I was like, have him try these. And I, you know, I told him about the dosing and the arma extract gummies. And I’m like, Have him try these. She’s like, Okay. So I can’t wait to hear how that goes because again, you and I, we would try that first when like my husband’s foot was hurting. I’m like, Did you put some SAB on it? Have you not put any bomb on it? Put some bomb on it. Bomb sab. I interchange him. And of course he’s the one that manufactures and he’s the worst one sometimes to use some of that stuff. And it cracks me up. I’m like, that’s what I do first. And then if it doesn’t work, then I look for something different. But I am all about that. Yeah. As natural as possible. Yeah. If they could do something with my appendix with it, I’d be, I’d be home free.

 

Matt:

Well, you know what though? And, and you can’t, you, you can’t shirk western medicine and you can’t shirk medicine in the medical community because I, I think that, um, I don’t think that it’s the medical community necessarily. That’s, No,

 

Dee Dee:

I think most of them want to help.

 

Matt:

Yeah. Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. I, I, and I think that doctors more now than ever just get stuck.

 

Dee Dee:

They do.

 

Matt:

Um, and I think that, you know, the groups that they’re in, uh, the, the, you know, the, the way that the system now runs, the insurance processes

 

Dee Dee:

Force them. You and I both have really, you and I both have good doctor friends and you know, my friend, he was even too afraid to say something at the town halls because of what his group might say about it. And that’s just sad. Like they can’t even speak their minds about it. And he, you know, he’s an avid, um, connoisseur. His wife has horrible back pain. It’s the only thing that’s relieved her pressure.

 

Matt:

But we can speak, speak our minds about it.

 

Dee Dee:

We can. And we do trust.

 

Matt:

We don’t care.

 

Dee Dee:

<laugh>. No, we

 

Matt:

Don’t care. Well, there’s no, well, there’s no, my initials are md but I’m not a medical doctor.

 

Dee Dee:

Oh. My initials are clean

 

Matt:
