What Are You Smoking? is hosted by a rotating cast of Leafly’s cannabis experts—Will Hyde, Bailey Rahn, Emily Resling, and Dante Jordan. Tune in every Wednesday to hear activists, entrepreneurs, farmers, processors, and figures from from all corners of the cannabis world weigh in on the latest developments in the industry, what’s coming next, and of course, what new strains and products they’re enjoying these days.
What Are You Smoking Episode 82: Dispensary Myths Debunked
This week on the show, Dante is joined by Leafly news editor Bruce Barcott to talk about myths that surround neighborhood cannabis dispensaries.
You’ll learn about some of the most pernicious myths that opponents try to hang on cannabis shops, and what data actually tells us about issues like crime rates, underage use, and property values near dispensaries.
We’ll also chat about how dispensaries can act as anchor stores, how they could drive gentrification, and what shops can do to be good neighbors in their communities. And we’ll talk about some of our favorite shops in the Seattle area—and our favorite products from them.
