If you caught Episode #101 of The Russ Belville Show you heard our interview with Erin Purchase and Brandon Krenzler, the parents of 7-year-old Mykayla Comstock, who is battling the effects of chemotherapy for her leukemia by using cannabis oil. As we set up the interview, Brandon told us how Anderson Cooper, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, and other shows have been trying to get them to fly out to New York for interviews. He also mentioned that Huffington Post Live wanted to speak to them last Friday, but he had already committed to come on our show.

So we contacted Huffington Post Live and let them know that we could make our studio feed available in our second hour and they could interview Brandon and Erin. The segment is embedded above and also includes Johnny Green from The Weed Blog, cannabis juicing expert Dr. William Courtney (who we brought to you from the Patients Out of Time Conference, audio here), and Jason, a father treating his son with cannabis as well.

    I thought Mr Green was much younger. Its ok, I’m still old enough to be your father. And don’t have half your writing skills.
