The Roll-Up

Episode 25: How to Pass a Drug Test and Beat the Lie Detector

This week: Arizona allows California med cards, Ben rules on the federal-state preemption clause, Dave lands one of those sweet arm-and-leg jobs (there’s a lot of limb talk, oddly), and Bruce gets worked up over the new Ontario Cannabis Stores logo. Send him a t-shirt, OCS! 

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.

This Week’s Corrections & Confirmations

Corrections: Harold’s Lamps and Shades is now called Harold’s Lighting. Harold apparently went through a brand update a few years back.

Confirmations: Ben is correct, the Supremacy Clause does appear in Article VI of the U.S. Constitution. Uncle Ike’s phone number is, indeed, 1-800-GET-DRUGS. We tried to post an Ed “Big Daddy” Roth illustration of the Rat Fink, but our photo editor said there were too many copyright issues. The Seattle-based American Artificial Limb Company is one of the hippest prosthetic technology companies in the world. Seriously! They post Joy Harjo poems on their website.

Here is the new logo of the Ontario Cannabis Store. We report, you decide:

And here is an overview of the Pat Graney Company, which has compiled an extraordinary body of dance work over the past 30 years. We really would love to see their interpretation of the Supremacy Clause.
