Leafly Podcast

The Roll-Up features co-hosts Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Alyssa Yeoman in a Friday morning roundtable about the week’s top cannabis news.

Episode 112: LA’s on fire

This week: Guest co-host David Downs walks us through LA’s trial by fire, and explains why there are so few legal cannabis stores in America’s cannabis hub. Also, we praise heroic jurors in New Orleans and look fondly upon the days when weed grew like weeds, wild in the streets and vacant lots of New York City.

The Shivas drop their new album

Our house band The Shivas released their new album, Dark Thoughts, earlier this week. It’s awesome. You can buy it here, or download it from your favorite platform. They’re touring up the West Coast this month, starting Nov. 2 in Tijuana—fucking Tijuana!—and finishing up in Seattle as part of the annual Freak Out Festival in Ballard on Nov. 14.

Brownie Mary & Dennis Peron

Learn more about their work on Leafly. Here’s a piece that includes Brownie Mary, and here’s Bruce’s bittersweet remembrance of Dennis Peron.

Meet our sponsor, the NorCal Cannabis Company

Check out their website, it’s got this crazy animation going on, as well as some cool videos. They’ve got six retail stores in California, make 2,000 deliveries daily, and grow 12 tons of cannabis every year. Twelve tons! You know how much an ounce of cannabis is, right? They grow 384,000 of those every year. Respect.

WTF is this all about now?
