Money. Intrigue. Weed. Hop on it.

An important story told with masterful storytelling. Smoked brings 1980s Miami to life while still staying relevant to Miami’s relationship with marijuana today. Money. Intrigue. Weed. What more could you want?

Fun and informative

The narrators did an excellent job of providing information, transitioning between interviews and giving background, and lacing it with real human interactions. The sound effects were timely and fun (I had missed the Miami Vice theme!). I'd love to hear more from them on other subjects.
