This week's Local Motion is a 420 special featuring Kate Redmond's interview of attorney Brian Vicente and Gavin Dahl's interview of journalist Leland Rucker. Nine years ago Vicente co-authored Amendment 64 which legalized marijuana and set up a framework for retail in Colorado. Rucker talks about his reporting for The News Station on evolving views of public officials and voters over the years, a study on the impacts of cannabis use on job performance, new legalization efforts in states like New Mexico, and his pop up book Dimensional Cannabis.

Kate has enjoyed a career in audio and lighting, with previous stints at The Vilar Performing Arts Center, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, and Strings Pavilion. Her interests include alpine skiing, yoga, poetry, mosaics, and she's currently writing a memoir about her time in Uruguay. After several years as a KVNF volunteer, she joined the staff in December 2020. She left the KVNF staff at the end of June, 2022, to take a position at KSUT in Ignacio, CO.
