Episode 8 "A Trip To The Canna-Carnival"
We often hear the cannabis industry compared to the Wild West, but that analogy doesn't quite work. For us, entering the cannabis space is a lot like walking the midway at the carnival. There's so much whimsy, wonder, and beauty, but you have to be careful that you don't end up a mark! Step right up & join us for a walk along the marijuana midway, at the Canna-Carnival!

Welcome to Episode 2! In this session, the Gang discusses going back to...    …what exactly?! The New Normal: Seasons are changing but some things stay the same   Our cultural touchstones haven’t been removed entirely, but they’re temporarily suspended at best.
