The Roll-Up

Episode 23: Oh Magoo, You’ve Done it Again

This week: Trump compares Jeff Sessions to a bald and bumbling cartoon character from ancient times. Also, Bruce visits a cannabis lounge in San Francisco, Ben reports on two tricky court cases, Dave digs into the canna-phobic Frenchiness of Quebec, a Texas baseball coach gets his cannabis comeuppance, and our Virginia listener receives the recognition he so richly deserves.

What, are you not familiar with the show? Every Friday, Leafly editors Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Dave Schmader dissect the week’s top stories in cannabis with analysis, arguments, jokes, and obscure cultural references.

The Roll-Up: It’s a news and culture podcast that hits the sweet spot between stoned and scholarly.
