What Are You Smoking?

Episode 41: Meet OTTO, the Joint-Rolling Robot

In this episode: 

This week on What Are You Smoking, we sit down with OTTO, the joint-rolling robot from Banana Bros, and OTTO’s inventor, Dave Richmond.

Dave’s a veteran engineer and a joint aficionado—not necessarily in that order—who brought his first entry into the cannabis industry into our studios to show us how it works. OTTO is an artificially intelligent electric grinder that precision mills cannabis for joints, blunts, and anything else you like to smoke!

While we took the OTTO for a spin, we chatted with Dave about how artificial intelligence can help build a better joint, what got him into the cannabis business, and how cannabis entrepreneurs can make crowdfunding work for them.
