420: April 20, 2019

Whether you partake or not, you’ll enjoy a full-bore range of music, and a surprising (for us) amount of facts and research for a single-topic edition of WAFFLES! — why you should call it cannabis (don’t call it marijuana!), prohibition, stereotypes, why Canada is the Most Legal Place On Earth, and music, music, music! From the 1930s to 2018, we’ve got music about pot, or in some cases by pot enthusiasts. Celebrate Canada’s first 4/20 post-legalization with WAFFLES!
