Episode 151: NBA star Al Harrington on cannabis, business, and Detroit

This week:

Al Harrington named his cannabis company after his grandmother, Viola, and he continues to honor his roots with the company’s flagship store and grow facility in Detroit. We talk with him about Viola’s location on the Detroit River, bringing in their first crop, and helping other Black entrepreneurs through his new business incubator.

WTF is this all about now?

Every Friday the Roll-Up crew—Bruce Barcott, Alyssa Yeoman, and Hannah Staton—dissect the week’s top stories in cannabis with analysis, arguments, jokes, and obscure cultural references. It’s a news and culture podcast, slightly elevated.
