Episode 1: Dope Yoda
Did your last encounter with police end in joint pain? Are you curious about the current state of the law on hemp, CBD, and marijuana in Iowa? Have you heard about NFG? But not really sure what it means? Then check out GRL Raw, a podcast by Gourley, Rehkemper, and Lindholm, PLC, Iowa’s premier drug crime defense firm.+ Read More
The two discuss medical cannabidiol, Iowa’s medical cannabis extract, and the reciprocity defense that GRL Law has essentially pioneered. Dope Yoda describes how he obtained district court rulings dismissing possession of marijuana charges against out-of-state drivers who had medical cards from their home state. The fascinating part about the rulings is the drivers possessed cannabis flower and edible gummies, two versions of medical marijuana that are not currently allowed in Iowa but are covered under the state’s reciprocity defense.
There’s also a conversation about NFG, a term of art that is an integral part of the firm’s culture. When the drug crime and drunk driving defense lawyers at GRL walk a client at trial, we celebrate the three-word jury verdict, NFG. You might be thinking, three words? Guilty has one and not guilty two, right? Yes, it’s like not guilty, but with an edge, just like the firm. GRL has already bagged two NFGs by the end of February, including one by Dope Yoda in Story County.
