The relationship I have with Budtender Brielle is very strange. I don't know if this is common knowledge, but in the short time that we have been doing our podcast together, she and I had inadvertently become each other's work husband & wife!
Here's some context for when Brielle dropped this quote: we were working like gangbusters at 1:30 a.m. trying to get a handle on the taxonomy and organization of the huge cannabis literature library that we feature in the Saturday With Mary Jane store. We seem to be some of the first that have gone through the lengthy ordeal of curating a collection that touches on all aspects of cannabis. Also, neither of us went to the trouble of earning Masters Degrees in Library Science, so we felt a bit f**ked by this point.
So anyhoo, an adorably exhausted Brielle let out this missive in an exasperated tone when the subject of cannabis and addiction came up during our late-night chat.
