This week: Bruce, Ben, and David Downs wrestle with the ethics of “Blitz” Bilzerian’s Bel-Air cannabis launch party, analyze the primary election season’s upset winners, go behind the scenes in SF’s cannabis lounges, and list the four best Burt Reynolds movies ever made.

What’s this 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, slightly elevated.

An Illustration of the Problem:

Seriously, this is one of the least offensive Instagram posts we could find on Dan Bilzerian’s page. We’re still debating how to handle his sexist crap: Expose it, and let customers and retailers know the ethos behind the brand, or ignore it and deny the guy further oxygen.
