Bonus Episode: Seattle City Attorney Expunges Cannabis Convictions

A very special bonus interview: Bruce and Ben sit down with Pete Holmes, the Seattle City Attorney who pioneered a decriminalization policy, then co-sponsored the initiative that legalized the adult use of cannabis in Washington State. Now he’s moving to vacate hundreds of minor cannabis convictions. Next up: Cannabis clubs and marijuana tourism?

What, are you not familiar with the 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 that hits the sweet spot between stoned and scholarly.
