Former Louisiana lawmaker Raymond Jetson assesses the state of young Black males in Baton Rouge. Jetson reports a wide disparity of wealth and education with vast opulence and abject poverty separated in some cases by a few blocks or one zip code away. State Representative Katrina Jackson, D-Monroe, and Pelican Institute CEO Daniel Erspamer discuss legislation debated at the State Capitol during the ongoing regular session. Writer Jen Hobbs promotes hemp in American, contending that growing the cash crop can improve health, clean the environment and slow climate change.
