Rising Up With Sonali

How Dangerous Is Trump’s Move to Open Offshore Drilling?

The Trump administration has announced an end to an offshore drilling ban, rolling back hard won environmental victories. On our show today we’ll turn to long-time oil and gas expert Antonia Juhasz for what it means. Then, after Jeff Sessions’ announcement to rescind the Cole Memo on marijuana policies, we’ll speak with Justin Strekal of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws about what it means for states like California that have legalized recreational pot use. Finally author and analyst Nader Hashemi will discuss the new book he has co-edited with Danny Postel about Middle East politics. It’s called Sectarianization: Mapping the New Politics of the Middle East.
