Published on March 5, 2018

Guess what, buds? MERRY JANE has a new show on Facebook Live, broadcasting every Tuesday & Thursday at 4:20pm ET, on the dot. We’ll be bringing you guests from the worlds of cannabis and culture to just kick back, relax, talk life and blow some dro with our editor-in-chief Noah Rubin. We’ll also be taking questions from our lit audience, so get ready to roll your favorite herb and chill with us for an online smokeout.

Our latest episode kept it classic with very special guest Cheech Marin. An OG in the world of cannabis entertainment, Cheech and his longtime partner Tommy Chong have kept California up in smoke since the ‘70s. Now, after more than 40 years in the game, Cheech stopped by the MERRY JANE studios to roll up, smoke out, and share his wealth of knowledge. After our favorite catatonic co-host Dope as Yola blessed our guest with a cannon of a joint, we dug into Cheech’s social media, finding stories about killer dogs in Malibu and artistic explorations in South Florida. As is tradition on About That Time, we lit about five joints of THC Design’s finest strains, before diving into the week’s most pressing cannabis news. Well versed in all things weed, Cheech helped to bring us up to date on Jeff Sessions’ latest opioid task force and California’s tenuous transition to full legalization. Like every ATT guest, Cheech left ‘Roll The News’ with his very own Weekend Box, before getting into all things Chicano art. A scholar and collector of Chicano art for decades, Cheech is now opening a museum dedicated to the oft-overlooked California style. For more Cheech Marin, check out Cheech & Chong on tour around the country, revisit all of their classic films, and keep your eyes peeled for the opening of the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art, Culture and Industry — coming to Riverside, California in 2020.

Time flies when you’re having fun, but there’s a lot more coming down the pipe. Tune in every Tuesday & Thursday at 4:20pm EST to MERRY JANE’s Facebook page to catch all the ganja-fied glory, and follow us on Instagram to find out who’s joining our joint sessions. We’ll see you there!

MERRY JANE is based in Los Angeles, California and is dedicated to elevating the discussion around cannabis culture.
