We discuss the stereotypes against pot smokers, and how it’s important to stand up against stigma.

Tune in to Part 2 of Episode 37: 

02:18-10:15 Halloween always creates some controversy, when people cross cultural boundaries, by borrowing from cultures for their costumes. We discuss what we believe is appropriation for costumes and what is cultural appreciation.

10:20-15:20 Is it possible to exploit your own culture? We chat about whether using your culture to get ahead is seen as exploitative in the same way as appropriation.

16:55-17:15 John Orpheus is a Toronto based artist, whose music makes a statement on pop culture, and our modern ideals in the West. He just released Goldchain Hennessey, a mixtape follow up to his last effort John Orpheus is Dead.
