The Roll-Up features co-hosts Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Alyssa Yeoman in a Friday morning roundtable about the week’s top cannabis news.
The Roll-Up #58: Did Mexico Just Legalize Weed?
This week: Mexico’s Supreme Court rules that cannabis prohibition is unconstitutional. So does that mean you can hit a blunt on the beach in Cancun? We discuss. Also, Ben updates the midterm election forecast, Alyssa finds a $700 vaporizer at Walmart, and we debate the proper function of the party pre-function.
What’s this show? Every Friday the Roll-Up crew—Bruce Barcott, Ben Adlin, and Alyssa Yeoman—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.
