EPISODE 2: MOTOR BOATING WITH CAPTAIN WIZARD
Spring is here, and summer is fast approaching. It’s that time of year when every single Midwesterner has had it up to their eyeballs with the cold, snow, and being stuck indoors. Get ready to kick off those snow boots, put the Carhartts in the closet, and top up your tan for boat season. That’s right…it’s time once again to party in slow motion and do some motorboating! But before you set sail on your summer adventures, GRL Raw, a podcast by Gourley, Rehkemper, & Lindholm, PLC, drops some knowledge to keep the party afloat and all you boaters out of hot water this summer. Episode Two of GRL Raw follows host Bobby Rehkemper as he sits down with Grant “Captain Wizard” Gangestad as the two discuss the need-to-know information for the upcoming boating season. Growing up around the lake, Grant is innately familiar with boating. There are only three published decisions from appellate courts in Iowa; Grant has handled two of them (Bobby had the other) and is the only attorney in Iowa to have won a boating case in front of the Iowa Supreme Court. The guy knows his way around a dinghy! Watch as the two discuss everything from boating while intoxicated, life jacket and equipment requirements, open containers on boats, common reasons for boating stops and how to avoid them, driver’s license consequences, and a host of information that you need to know before plopping your pontoon in the water.Make sure to stay tuned for the entire episode as we sneak in a sweet surprise with a new segment we are calling Dos and Don’ts with Doughnut. We don’t want to ruin the suspense so just think of interesting people, public posts, and a side of law.Like what you hear?

Dope Yoda
Did your last encounter with police end in joint pain? Are you curious about the current state of the law on hemp, CBD, and marijuana in Iowa? Have you heard about NFG? But not really sure what it means? Then check out GRL Raw, a podcast by Gourley, Rehkemper, and Lindholm, PLC, Iowa’s premier drug crime defense firm. The first episode is a banger, the real straight dope. We kick it off with Bobby Rehkemper hosting Colin Murphy over a few choice local libations in the firm’s cool new conference center. He is known by the drug defense bar as the Dope Yoda for his omnipotent knowledge of all things cannabis. Murphy spits fire about the main cannabinoids in cannabis, the difference between hemp and marijuana, and the legality of consumable hemp products in Iowa (spoiler alert . . . it’s legal to purchase and consume hemp extracts in Iowa). The two discuss medical cannabidiol, Iowa’s medical cannabis extract, and the reciprocity defense that GRL Law has essentially pioneered. Dope Yoda describes how he obtained district court rulings dismissing possession of marijuana charges against out-of-state drivers who had medical cards from their home state. The fascinating part about the rulings is the drivers possessed cannabis flower and edible gummies, two versions of medical marijuana that are not currently allowed in Iowa but are covered under the state’s reciprocity defense.  There’s also a conversation about NFG, a term of art that is an integral part of the firm’s culture. When the drug crime and drunk driving defense lawyers at GRL walk a client at trial, we celebrate the three-word jury verdict, NFG. You might be thinking, three words? Guilty has one and not guilty two, right? Yes, it’s like not guilty, but with an edge, just like the firm. GRL has already bagged two NFGs by the end of February, including one by Dope Yoda in Story County. Like what you hear?
