Kevin Smith, Filmaker and Cultural Icon

Kevin Smith, world-renowned filmmaker and cultural icon is today’s special guest on The Green Rush! Most well-known for his rise to prominence as the character Silent Bob in his classic film “Clerks” in 1994 (which he also wrote, directed and co-produced) Kevin Smith has since become a household name as an actor, writer, director, comedien, public speaker, comic book writer, author and podcaster. 

Longtime listeners to the show should remember our interview with Kevin’s hetero life mate, Jason Mewes, AKA Jay of the comedic duo Jay and Silent Bob, back in December of 2018. Together they have appeared in Smith’s collection of films including Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks II and Silent Bob Reboot. 

A native New Jerseyan, Lewis and Anne sat down with Kevin for a lengthy discussion to chat about their shared New Jersey roots as well as all things cannabis and podcasting. Within the conversation, our hosts explored with Kevin his love of podcasting, his films, his supernatural ability to smoke cannabis all day, everyday and remain highly productive, the development of his own strains of weed (and where to find them!), his upcoming projects and much, much more. 

In addition to being a cannabis icon, Kevin is an incredibly generous person and all of us at The Green Rush are grateful that he joined us to geek out about movies and cannabis. 

So don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!

Snootchie Bootchies! Chatting with Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob

Welcome back to the Green Rush!  This week we have Lewis and Anne go back to their New Jersey roots as they welcome in the legendary Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob fame!  Heralded as one of the most influential cultural cannabis icons in Hollywood over the last 25 years, Mewes got his start in Hollywood with the indie-smash, Clerks and has since starred in a number of films including Mallrats, Chasing Amy and Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Jason has since evolved his career from an actor into a full-fledged entertainer hosting the “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old” podcast and directing his own feature film “Madness in the Method” which is slated to be released in late 2018/early 2019.

During the conversation, Lewis and Anne chat with Jay about his relationship with Kevin Smith, when he was finally able to quit his day job and become a working actor, Jay’s struggles with addiction and his views on cannabis exit drug for those working to overcome opioid addiction; how Jay plans to introduce his daughter to his movies and cannabis and what Jay has coming up in the pipeline including his upcoming appearance at The Emerald Cup later this month.

In addition to the conversation with Jason, we also have Shea Gunther of Marijuana Today and our magnificent Program Director, opening this week’s episode covering the biggest news in the cannabis industry and breaking down what he thinks were the overlooked stories from last week. If you aren’t already make sure you are checking out all of the great content Shea is helping produce over at Marijuana Today.

Enjoy!
