The Roll-Up

Episode 5: Delightful Chats With Border Guards

This week: The band’s getting back together! After a month of travel (Paris, Toronto, New York, Oakland, San Francisco, Phoenix, New Paltz), the Roll-Up crew returns in full force. Dave (Toronto), Ben (Paris) and Bruce (all the rest) consider Melissa Etheridge’s beatific mug shot; Gord Downie’s epic passing; Calaveras County’s cannabis wars; the vindicated Kettle Falls Five; and the proper way for a cannabis expert to cross an international border.

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.
