On Todays Episode of Let's Talk Bitcoin...

Adam B. Levine explores AB1489 or "The California Bitlicense" and AB953, or what we're calling "The California Stablecoin Cannabis Taxation Bill" through a series of short interviews on various sides of the issues.

First, we speak to Colin Gallagher, a longtime community member in California who shares his concerns about the process and substance of both the bills we're discussing today.

Next, Peter Van Valkenburgh joins us from for his perspective on why the California Bitlicense is a de-regulating bill, why they help craft good legislation for those states who want it, and more.

We close today's show with Alexandra Medina, Mayor of Emeryville, California, executive director of and a relative newcomer to Bitcoin. Ally tells us what AB953 and the option to remit taxes in stablecoins could mean to the cash-rich but unbankable California Cannabis industry.

Let's Talk Bitcoin! is a labor of love, but we very much appreciate tips.
