Justin Wilcomes is known to push boundaries. Now he’s pushing medicinal marijuana.

This clown has the audacity to say “if you want to complain, good luck finding someone to complain to” Well guess what smart guy, the listeners (if there are a few left) complain by turning guys like you off! we don’t need you or the rest of the clowns at ‘NW. There’s lots of other choices out there.

  3. Gee, why stop at shilling. Why not go all in with a one-hour informercial to knock yet another hour off of actual talk-show programming on weekends?

  4. Drex, you sound great, and have a strong awareness of the culture we currently live in. People hate change, especially as their youth becomes more lost in the fog every day.
