Great Moments in Weed History is a podcast that delves deep into humanity’s 10,000+ year relationship with cannabis to uncover the humor, heart, and historical importance of the planet’s most revered and maligned plant. Taking listeners on a wild ride through marijuana legend and lore to uncover how a renegade, underground movement of growers, smugglers, artists, activists, outlaws, healers, wheelers and dealers created a vibrant, verdant culture of resistance, and ultimately came out on top. Not to mention high as fuck.
