With today being a day of action through sites like TheDayWeFightBack.org, we'll welcome in author and privacy expert Katherine Albrecht to discuss how we can best combat threats against our privacy by not just the government but by businesses. We'll also learn more about advances in technology and how we should never let our guard down. Don't miss this important information!
Then we'll be joined by Michael Schussele, a fee-only financial planner, to discuss the latest economic news including a drop in the value of Bitcoin, new Federal Reserve chairman Janet Yellen and also the AP's projections for a sluggish economy moving forward. Be sure to catch this conversation to better understand the economy from a macro and micro level!
The latest rules for medical marijuana in Illinois provide from some hefty fees for dispensaries to pay the state during the planned pilot program. Some of the figures could be a $5,000 nonrefundable application fee, proof of nearly half-a-million in assets, a $30,000 permit fee and a yearly permit renewal of $25,000. That, and other fees, could add up to a pricey endeavor for entrepreneurs to even consider venturing into providing medicine to sick patients. That could also cause the cost of the medicine to skyrocket to the point where those wanting the drug could still get it on the black market. We'll talk with Dan Linn from Illinois NORML about the new rules just after 10.
Sex and politics
After 10:30 we'll open up the conversation about State Treasurer Dan Rutherford and the allegations leveled against him. Political scholar Kent Redfield will join the show to talk about the potential impacts of this type of story during a primary election, and we'll also talk about how people may have rebounded from these types of accusations. Then we'll review both sides and take your calls about who is most credible ... the Treasurer and GOP Gubernatorial candidate, or someone who quit his job and has reported financial problems.
