RIP CLIFF ROBINSON (1966-2020)

Having just designed Cliff Robinson’s rolling papers last year I was surprised and saddened this morning to hear of his untimely passing. I only got to meet Cliffy once, barely, in an elevator as he was going upstairs to his room at the downtown Portland Hilton where he was the celebrity speaker at the International Cannabis Business Conference. Cliffy was with my friend who puts the conference on, and they invited me into the elevator to go upstairs and puff with them, but I’d just committed to lunch with two women and declined. Now I’ll never get the chance to puff with Uncle Cliffy, and that makes me sad. His Portland Trailblazers play tonight in the resumed playoffs in the NBA bubble, against the decidedly suspect Lakers team. Let’s win at least one more game in this series for Cliff Robinson Blazers!
