Program Note: NHPR to Air Reporting on Cannabis Legalization


On Saturday, April 20, New Hampshire Public Radio will broadcast part of a collaborative project on pot legalization from fellow public media stations WNYC and Colorado Public Radio.

The joint reporting venture breaks down the implications of legalizing recreational marijuana from two of the states that have such legislation—New York and Colorado. The special—titled Ask a Legal State: A National Conversation About Pot—will examine the legal, political and cultural landscape surrounding legalizing recreational cannabis.

WNYC’s Brian Lehrer and Colorado Public Radio’s Ann Marie Awad will host the national conversation, which will include questions from listeners throughout the country.

NHPR will air the second hour of the broadcast, which will run in place of the TED Radio Hour from 1 to 2 p.m. Hour two—Legally Stoned in America—explores pot culture in states where it’s legal; the public health impact; driving stoned; and who, when and where people use recreational pot.  

Listen live on the radio throughout the state, or stream at nhpr.org.
