Truly nerding our on cannabis policy
Two of the smartest, nerdiest people in the cannabis industry on one podcast = my dream show. Obvious they know what they’re talking about, and are somehow able to get into nitty gritty detail while keeping it light & interesting (no small task). One of the must-listen-to cannabis podcasts!
Very informative and takes it beyond the headlines. Clear the podcasters actually do cannabis work for a living.
Love this show
I Love this podcast and learn a ton with every episode. Thx Jordan and keep em coming.
