Shortly after Meridy Volz moved from Milwaukee to San Francisco, she received a phone call from a friend asking her to take over a small bakery business. ┬áMeridy agreed to run the bakery, but she only wanted to sell one thing: pot brownies. Her brownies were a massive success, and soon she was making enough money to support three families. Meridy is joined by her daughter, Alia Volz, who describes what it’s like when San Francisco’s “original brownie lady” is your mom.
