With scant days to go, Uncle Weed reflects on expectations, better realized – plus shares affection for kind people, the important of finding authenticity and supporting local economy– all while embarking on final steps before leaving, including: visiting Mr. Lawrence, the lifeguard; packing up jerk spice and mango chutney; detailing the geometric woodwork in the Queen’s Cottage’s roof; plus mops up a few stories, chats about PM Michael Manley’s Canadian ties, and dives into the sea… before saying good-bye to the Jamaican people by celebrating optimism about the free island’s place in the world.

On this week’s episode of the Web’s Favourite Cannabis Podcast, the Dopefiend talks about how Canadian Prince of Pot Marc Emery has been sold out by his own government and faces five years in a US jail. … Next, the Dopefiend reads an intense email about cannabis and depression and tells the Dopetribe how to follow his advice and subscribe to the Dopefiend podcasts, before introducing Canadian hemp activist and cannabis podcaster Uncle Weed as he interviews Chef Boy-am-I-hungry about some methods of ingesting our secret sacrament at his own special spot in Mosquito Creek. In this week’s Cannabis News, Canadian police beat and bloody an innocent man in a botched drug raid, Florida bans bongs, Holland takes it’s bid to ban foreigners from coffeeshops to the European Court, a new group of pro-pot women is formed in Colorado, Detroit echos California’s move to legalize cannabis, LA orders over 400 dispensaries to close, while the campaign for full legalization gathers steam, and Texas police struggle to destroy all their impounded herb.
In response to Dave Delaney (davemadethat.com)’s meme-like inquiry about favourite podcasts – What are you listening to? A podcasting meme – I sit on the rocky banks of Vancouver’s Burrard Inlet drinking a St. Ambroise beer and extol a list of faves podcasts with reasonings and anecdotes about each.
On Canadian Thanksgiving holiday, Uncle Weed and friends enjoy Absinthe from Barcelona, with carmelized with raw sugar and a magic mushroom tea infused nature stroll with a strawberry-grapefruit joint under the Trans Canada Highway where 2 people fell through the gaps.
With a enormous joint of Kemo bud, Uncle Weed hauls his UK counterpart The Dopefiend into the woods on Vancouver’s North Shore to talk about stoner travel delights in BC, break down the cult of the Purple Kush and explain the true meaning of chooglin while the the river rolls by while the stone mason rambles a tune from the woodshop.
Yup, whilst in London, I hooked up with my Atlantic doppelgänger, The Dopefiend – a guy who homegrows a cannabis podcast called Dopecast. He even has a herd of cohorts gleaning wisdom and inspiration to bust out shows of their own. Good times indeed and mucho recordings to spread and this takes time … so while i am editing away, here is me – Uncleweed on Dopefiend’s Dopecast #80.
Here’s the show description:
On this extra-special Eightieth Episode Extravaganza, The Dopefiend is joined in the VaporLounge by podcasting legend, Cannabis journo and Hemp activist Uncle Weed for an hour-long exhaustive interview and vaping session covering subjects as diverse as where the world’s best weed comes from, the current Cannabis scene in Canada, how Vancouver has changed in relation to the Cannabis scene in Toronto, the spread of Compassion Clubs in the US and whether medical marijuana will ever be fully legal, Hemp and Cannabis use in Japan and the North American hemp revolution Uncle Weed discovered while making his documentary The Hempen Road, and how the hemp industry has changed since the film’s release, and lots more, including some extremely tasty bags of Hawaiian, Brainstorm and New York City Diesel.
Yes, yes i’ve been internationally chastised for my molasses pace of production so while i am toiling away for your aural pleasure, download it yerself to hear the grandeur of two podcasters managing compelling discourse amidst copious clouds of vapor.
