OA138: Pot, Gerrymandering, and Net Neutrality

Today’s episode tackles a number of breaking legal issues.

First, the guys break down the recent memorandum by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on marijuana.  What does this mean for the average recreational user in a state where pot is legal, like California?  Listen and find out!

Next, Andrew walks us through the recent decision by a three-judge panel in North Carolina invalidating that state’s electoral districts.

After that, the guys tackle a question from listener Jeremy Feldman about Net Neutrality and the Congressional Review Act.

Finally, we end with an all-new Thomas (and Cara Santa Maria!) Take the Bar Exam Question #58 about the hottest new gadget, the Mitsubishi Walk-and-Talkman!  Remember that you can play along with #TTTBE by retweeting our episode on Twitter or sharing it on Facebook along with your guess.  We’ll release the answer on next Tuesday’s episode along with our favorite entry!
