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.

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

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.
The theme song for The Roll-Up is “Turn Me On,” from the EP of the same name by The Shivas. Check out their music on iTunes. For more about the band, see their home page, theshivas.org.
