The Roll-Up #48: Banksy, Bankster, and MedMen

This week: MedMen’s blitz of the California cannabis marketplace is making waves, and writer Hayley Fox chats about her great investigative piece on the phenomenon. Meanwhile, Canada hosts its last humongous cannabis conference before federal legalization hits, and we parse the takeaways (including the importance of inviting high people to party at a Banksy exhibit). Also, Wells Fargo sucks.

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 that hits the sweet spot between stoned and scholarly.
