OA849: The Law Of New Year’s!

As we wind down 2023, Liz and Andrew bring you an entirely Trump-free, New Year’s Eve-themed show!

First, the two discuss legal weed, President Biden’s pardon, and what the future holds for those who like to smoke.

Then, Liz and Andrew discuss the legal minutiae of the Ninth Circuit’s reversal of the conviction of Rep. Fortenberry (pictured). Ever wanted to know the difference between venue and vicinage? You will now! Thank you for listening to us in 2023!
