The Roll-Up

Episode 30: John Boehner Is My Facebook Friend

This week: Bruce is back from Alaska with amazing tales of palm-leaf pre-rolls! This week, he, Ben, and Dave wrestle with President Trump’s cool-if-he-means-it pronouncement in support of state-legal cannabis, former House Speaker John Boehner’s coming out as a pro-cannabis profiteer, and a loopy Pennsylvania law that would see cannabis flower approved “for vaping only.”

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.
