Episode 12: But Where Are You Really From?

"But where are you really from?" is a question that may feel harmless but often times serves as a way to "other" the person being asked this. Jeremie recently had an experience surrounding this topic which inspired the episode.

Some important topics too; the gentrification and legalization of it, how it became illegal to begin with, and why are people still sitting in prison for selling weed in states where it is now legal. One problem, we ate a magic cookie at the start of the episode and it only took 10min to kick in.
