Weed Like to Talk
Your pals Hal + Jamal are bringing you a big gay look into the world of weed. Hear stories about the history of cannabis and cannabis culture, things happening in the industry, and new brands, products, dispensaries - whatever Weed Like to Talk about!
In this final episode of Weed Like to Talk Season 1, your pals Jamal and Hal wrap up the season with an episode all about weed in the media. Most specifically, social media. As the legal cannabis market remains restricted, cannabis companies continue to struggle to use traditional and modern media without hurdles. Blackbird has a long history with unexpected profile deletions and suspensions, and we use this episode to talk about that experience. You can tune in to hear what to expect for Season 2 and an in-depth breakdown of Jamal and Hal's fandom for Lady Gaga. Which album do they think is THE ALBUM of Lady Gaga's career? Listen to find out. Thanks for supporting Weed Like to Talk in our first season, we will be back with more soon! Cannabis to you at blackbirdgo.com
