Walsh, a media relations consultant in the marijuana industry, stops by The Cannabist Show to talk about the transition with Ricardo Baca, The Cannabist’s contributing editor.

“It’s kind of the same thing, in a way,” Walsh says.

“Everybody’s calling about another record, right? So you’ve got to figure out what makes this unique, why is it relevant,” he says. “Don’t waste the person’s time.”
