The Roll-Up #50: The Problem With Dan Bilzerian’s Party
The Roll-Up features Leafly editors Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Dave Schmader in a Friday morning roundtable about the week’s top cannabis news.
The Roll-Up #50: The Dilemma of Dan Bilzerian’s Party
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.
Stories We’re Hitting:
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.

Best of Social This Week:
Having worked at BPG while the lounge was active, this is so real. I will make sure my #maine state and local officials see it too.

@TheRollUp Follower of the Week:
High Times Senior Editor Danny Danko (@DannyDanko) is all about spreading his love and knowledge of cannabis. This week his long-awaited book, Cannabis: A Beginner’s Guide to Growing Marijuana, dropped kilos of knowledge on the world. Preview it for free at Amazon.
Sometimes the book game reminds me of the weed game. Like, sure you could buy one of my books and grow your own – or – you could buy a whole pack of my books cheap, break ’em down to your friends, and read for free plus feed your seeds. Everybody’s got choices…
