Cannabis Business Times
- The smartly produced first episode reveals the backstory of Belushi’s pot journey, including the passing of his brother, John, an addict whom he says cannabis would have saved. Jim Belushi’s utter ignorance upon starting in weed is also the stuff of content.

- LA’s Echo Park neighborhood makes an appearance in this wide ranging episode when B-Real’s crew reminisces over their sketchiest bud runs.
