This weekend kicks of the annual Seattle to Portland bicycle classic, even those of us not riding the 200+ miles get something out of it. Butt chafing? No, we learn a new erm: bonking. You can use it in so many settings, and we do. If it’s Friday, we’re talking weed. Really, these are historic times, as the first every store to sell legal recreational marijuana in Seattle opened this week. The place looks like a head shop and the owner forgot to put up signage, that aside, you do sense that this is serious business. Wall Street has taken note of the marijuana trade, and joining us today is one of the first private equity funded firms connected to Washington’s legal weed business: Leafly. Cy Scott, Leafly’s founder, walks us through what we need to know to be an educated consumer, and helps Marty pick the right strain for euphoria. Finally, our podcast is in it’s fourth year, and in each of those years we have hosted the good folks from Operation Ward 57 to plug their annual Rock & Rally for the Troops, also in its fourth year. Brittney Hamilton of OW57 tells us how her group tries to help vets navigate the mess that is the VA, and Chris Haley of the band A Lien Nation previews a couple new songs they’ll be playing at this years Rally. Rock and Rally for the troops has moved to Fife and is happening all day, two stages, on August 2.
