With the 2020 presidential race running on full steam, 12 Democratic candidates for president participated in yet another televised debate last night in Ohio. Considering consumers will be directly impacted by many of the policies mentioned, here’s a breakdown by categories mentioned by the candidates and our own spin on how it relates to consumer […]
The media and government are misleading consumers on vaping. The real issues of concern are bootleg, illicit products that are putting people in the hospital. Let’s call a spade and spade and actually reflect the science on harm reduction and vaping. Yaël Ossowski interviewed by Joe Catenacci on The Big Talker 106.7FM.
In the second season of the Netflix series Rotten, there is an entire episode exploring the world of cannabis edibles. It is highly recommended.

I first had an Impossible Burger in Charlotte sometime last year, and have since tried the Beyond Meat burgers and sausages you can buy at Whole Foods. Each one tastes like meat, bleeds like meat […]
Podcasts are short lived. That’s mostly a fact. I’ve read that the average life span of a podcast is six episodes. Likely, it’s shorter.
