060 – Constitutional Law, Free Speech and Politics



“The problem comes when somebody wants to use the government to shut the other side up…that’s when it gets really dicey…”

Where and when do your constitutional rights apply? At work? At school? Do you give up some of your constitutional rights when you go to private school? What should you know about kids, cell phones and free speech? Steve, Jeff, Jared and Bill drop some surprising knowledge, then things get extra interesting when Colin Kaepernick, Tim Tebow, men in tights and political protests get stirred into the mix.

Don’t forget the Chili Bowl next Sunday, November 25, 2018 at the Grandview Theater and Drafthouse! For more information, check out: https://www.parkerleefoundation.org/event/chili-bowl

059 – Mail Call #2 Election Edition What Is Attorney-Client Privilege?



Our audience asks us some great questions – and we answer them! “Do you advise using dash-cams?”, “What does attorney-client privilege mean?”, “Should I go to law school at 46?”,  “If you delete a dash-cam video after an accident, is that destroying evidence?”, “Has Jeff considered a less-stressful practice area like real estate?”, and “Jeff’s voice is a dead-ringer for what celebrity?” Ok, what would your answer be to that last one?

Steve, Jared and Bill answer our most recent listener questions, try to avoid talking about the election, and also discuss the opiate problem, why adding Constitutional amendments is usually not a good thing, why attorney-client privilege never applies to jailhouse phone calls, and why there are so many Russian car crash videos on YouTube.

Also, find out what prompts Lawyer Steve Palmer to say, “I hate lawyers. God, I hate lawyers…”

057 – Ohio Medical Marijuana Laws



Medical marijuana has been legal in Ohio since September 8, 2018 – so why haven’t we heard more about it? Where are the dispensaries? What doctors can recommend marijuana for their patients? Who can legally buy and sell CBD oils in Ohio?

Steve, Jared and Bill share some fun facts and inside stories behind Ohio’s first legal “grow operations.” Well, not legal by federal law…more on that.

But the State of Ohio was so efficient in their launching of the Ohio Medical Marijuana program.
Haha, just kidding – they weren’t.
