This week, reefer gets the FANTI treatment, and Jarrett and Tre’Vell are joined by Ball Family Farms CEO Chris Ball. The plant that put food on his table and money in his pocket also put the former pro football player in prison. Of course, that was before weed was legal. Chris explains how he got into cultivating marijuana, and some of the struggles that cannabis growers face, and in particular Black and brown growers. Plus, what is going on over there at Sony? Why did it take so long for Mike Richards to get fired?

About the show

Sometimes the people, places, and things we love don’t love us back. We’re fans, but we also have some ANTI- feelings toward them. Every week on FANTI, journalists Tre’vell Anderson and Jarrett Hill bring their pop culture and political expertise to things we must stan and stand up against. FANTI is a place where nuance reigns supreme with energetic, complicated, and sometimes difficult conversations that bring deep knowledge and thoughtful perspective to the things we love and rage about, from the White House to the Real House(wives).
