What Are You Smoking?

Episode 45:  Prohibition Pains

In this episode: 

This week on What Are You Smoking?, we welcome Leafly’s newest staff writer, Dante Jordan, back to the show and get a reminder that, while legal cannabis makes things seem rosy on the coasts, prohibition is still wrecking lives around the nation.

Recently arrived in Seattle from Dallas, Dante shares his thoughts on how legalization efforts impact states where cannabis prohibition is still the law of the land, what’s it like writing about cannabis from a prohibition state, and what folks in legal states seem to forget about the bad old days.

It’s not all heavy stuff, though—we also chat about why Seattle doesn’t smoke blunts, try to figure out what number of dabs is the best number of dabs, and explore the many different flavors and effects of “Sour Diesel” in Texas.
