June 13, 2018

Lukas Behal joins us and provides his background in events which has led him to organize one of the world’s largest trade shows in the Czech Republic. He notes that there were better times in the past- decades ago, just after Czechoslovakia split, homegrow was prevalent and public consumption was not an issue. Since 2010, he’s been building the trade show within the context of legal cannabis.
And based on Lucas’ personal experience, we also get a chance to discuss the differences between socialism and communism. And we come away thinking the true enemy of society being laziness coupled with an aversion to conceiving of original thought.

Lucas Behal joins us and provides his background in events which has led him to organize one of the world's largest trade shows in the Czech Republic.

Speaker 1: He notes that there were better times in the past decades ago. Just after the checklist of Ikea Split, homegirl was prevalent in public consumption, was not an issue since 2010. He's been building trade show within the context of legal cannabis and based on Lucas's personal experience, we also get a chance to discuss the differences between socialism and communism and we come away thinking the true enemy of society being laziness, coupled with an aversion to conceiving of original thoughts. Welcome to cannabis economy. I'm your host Seth Adler. Check us out on social with the American economy. That's two ends. And the word economy wookah should be how? Yeah, how? Yeah. How nice
