Good Morning and welcome to another edition of the Baked and Awake News Brief, a Baked and Awake Podcast Production. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday your host Steve Cominski (that’s me!) will bring you Cannabis, Tech, and “quote” Conspiracy headlines in a concise report.  I will also share with you upcoming topics for discussion on my long form podcast, Baked and Awake, which is available EVERYWHERE. Please, find and subscribe to the podcast today on your favorite pod catcher to get much more content like this.


Two Headlines and Sources I won’t necessarily follow up on, but you SHOULD- Powered as always by my google alerts.  Today’s keywords are “Marijuana”, and “Robots”.


November 18, 2018- The Motley Fool, a popular financial advice oriented podcast and blog posts: 3 Marijuana Stock Risks No One is Talking About  I read it, it’s a good story, and the three areas they mention are worth considering for sure.  I won’t spoil the story for you though- go check it out at


Two days ago on November 16th, The Register UK’s Andrew Orlowski writes that Google’s Parent company “Alphabet gives bipedal robots the Schaft ‘cos no one wants to buy its creepy machine maker” This story, I can’t call it a report, dismissively describes the demise of the Schaft project, which, along with Boston Dynamics, is also owned these days by our friends over at oh let’s just call them Google because we knew them back when. To my eyes this robot sounds like it was an Acqui-hire situation from the start.  Conjecture, sure- but I bet all it’s best technologies have already been parceled out to the scary af, parkour robot Atlas and its successors, or in fifty other projects we will never hear about.  That’s cool though, it’s all cool, right?
